The Blues' trip to North London will now take place on Sunday 13 September with a 4:30pm kick-off time and coverage by Sky Sports.
Meanwhile the home match against the Baggies stays on Saturday 19 September but has been brought forward to a 12:30pm kick-off, with BT Sport screening the game.
Everton's third match, another trip to the Capital to face Crystal Palace will be played at 3pm on Saturday 26 September as scheduled but it won't be shown on domestic television.
The visit to Leicester City, originally scheduled for Tuesday 15 December at 7:45pm, will have to be moved due to the Foxes' participation in the Europa League but confirmation of the new date and time will come in due course.

Mind you, whether watching us will actually be a pleasure remains to be seen.

I wonder what the policy would be on refunds for season ticket holders If nobody else had access to the televised games. The club might argue that such privileged access to televised games warranted a reduction in refunds.
Mike: " I gotta moan about the Baggies game. 12:30pm at Goodison is 4:30am at my house. Not my best hour." Mike, you need to move closer to Goodison!

I can see LFC fans pleased with that, because most of them watch from the armchair.
The season should not have kicked off until everyone was allowed in, even if it took a year. Who benefitted from the start... the TV of course. TV were able to schedule every game even at 6pm kick offs. And that is exactly how they will try it again even when it returns to normality.
Every home games without our fans will be like an away match, and we all know what we're like away from home. Believe me we are in for a tough season.

Anyway, happy house-hunting.

I live in Halifax.
It's 1976 here.

I make the experience of watching Everton less dismal by playing a form of bingo I call Gobshite! (trade mark) In which specific drivel remarks like ‘front foot' ‘it really is' or instances of Mcmanamamams over pronounced beauties like ‘it certingly is' or his observations of ‘nice and tight' etc tick a box.
Random Carragher biased is a wild card, so when the talk is about an away win for Port Vale or Carlisle's new away strip and Carragher pops up with an unconnected criticism of Everton, that's a win and you shout Gobshite! at the telly. Hours of fun for the whole family.
Definitely taking it to Dragon's Den.

You and I can drink coffee, look out over the sea, and then waylay Marcel Brands to get the lowdown when he partakes of his daily constitutional.

Carlo's got a pad there in the Beverley Hills part called Blundellsands. He could be your neighbour. He may even invite you on his evening strolls, asking opinion and discussing strategies, under the spectacular Crosby beach sunset.

1984, we lost the opening fixture 4 - 1 to Tottenham followed by a 2 - 1 defeat to West Brom. We went on to have the finest season in our club's history. Romped to the league title with a then record points tally, won our first and only European trophy and only narrowly missed out on a historic treble in extra time at Wembley.
I'm off to the bookies . it worked for that Leicester fan a couple of years ago.
Yes, I was out last night and still feeling the effects!!

You are right about the new panelists, just waiting for a high profile just out of the closet lesbian or homosexual to get a seat, after all it pays well. That should draw them out. Flys and shit.
