People run their lives around their clubs, but sadly the media now runs the fixture list.
Pure business and the FA and the media don't care about the average football supporters who go to games.
Everton I'm sure in time will do their bit to recompense their own supporters, and there may be some learning to take in for Bramley-Moore Dock.
The club will need to optimise best practice and consider their own fans first. I'm sure they will.

I'm personally quite pleased there's the option to watch two or three games each day on the weekends. Friday night games are also a great idea too!

A Season Ticket is a contract which you take at risk, if you buy a ticket in advance for a game, it's a risk.
Put the ball on the other foot, and perhaps you'll see our point. People work often to midday and go the match at normal Saturday 3 pm KO time.
At the end of the day, the media decides what times games start and what dates, and that impacts both home and especially travelling fans.
From your perspective, it suits you and that's fine, but many fans lose out, as they won't be able to switch shifts etc.
You can't please everyone.

Everyone kicking off at 3pm on a Saturday and having to rely on 5 mins of highlights per game on Match of the Day seems horrendous in my opinion.

I don't subscribe to Sky or BT. If I can't get to a game I listen on the radio or a live stream.
