Thursday, 6 July, 2017 13comments  |  Jump to most recent
Everton have been selected for just three live games by Sky Sports between August and the start of October.

Both of the Blues' trips to Manchester together with the home game against Burnley have been moved to accommodate live broadcast by Sky.

Manchester City vs Everton has been switched to Monday 21 August with an 8pm kick-off.

The match at Old Trafford against Manchester United will now kick off on Sunday 17 September at 4pm.

Everton will host Burnley on 1 October with a 2:15pm kick-off.

The game against Man City 21/08/2017 means that if we get through the 3rd qualifying round of the Europa League we will have to play the second leg of the play-off round which could be thousands of miles away across Europe on the Thursday of that week. Surely Everton should be protesting against this fixture change given its importance to us to progress to the group stages. I am really surprised that this hasn't already been picked up on.

Play-off Round

1st Leg 17th August

2nd Leg 24th August

Another excellent reason not to subscribe to this shit company.

So Chelsea away and Tottenham at home are not on TV but the mighty clash with Burnley is.

Joke – any other team that finished above us would be a certainty to be on TV against those sides.

Here's hoping this side upsets the apple cart this season and leave them no choice but to air the games later in the season.

Neil, depending on coefficient we may well be seeded for the playoff round, meaning the 2nd leg is likely to be at home.

Well spotted!

Fixtures not working in our favour. No surprise there.

Moaning about fixtures is pointless. We will have to have a squad that can cope with this sort of thing if we are serious about being competitive. Hopefully with a few more additions we will be able to take this sort of thing in our stride.

If Everton get through the qualifying stage of the Europa League and play the second leg on 24th Aug, then the Chelsea Everton game, currently Sat 26th Aug will be changed. Assume that's possibly a reason for not picking that match for TV, either Sky or BT Sport.

None of our games are on BT either, in August or September.

Gary, why would our games be on BT, those lot seem to have exclusitivity with BT to show them the weeks Sky don't!

Sounds like it's all corrupt... but no surprise there. We can only hope and dream that a miracle can happen and we become a big club again, but I won't see it in my lifetime, just glad I was there in the 80s.

I think we would have had a couple more if Rooney had been signed earlier.

All of our post Europa League games will move, obviously. I would take Sky and BT with a pinch of salt – they will change them... how does the song go "when we want"? If Arsenal start the season on Friday, I'm sure there'll be a few Fridays too.
