Tottenham Hotspur announced fixture date and time changes for matches in April today, as a number of them were selected by Sky Sports for broadcast in the UK. That's the good news! The bad news is that a number of them were moved to Monday nights.
- Liverpool (A) - remains Saturday, April 2, 2016 - kick-off now 5.30pm - live on Sky Sports
- Manchester United (H) - now Sunday, April 10, 2016 - kick-off 4pm - live on Sky Sports
- Stoke City (A) - now Monday, April 18, 2016 - kick-off 8pm - live on Sky Sports
- West Bromwich Albion (H) - now Monday, April 25, 2016 - kick-off 8pm - live on Sky Sports
- Chelsea (A) - now Monday, May 2, 2016 - kick-off 8pm - live on Sky Sports*
*This match is subject to Chelsea's possible participation in the Champions League the following Tuesday.
In addition, the following matches have been moved as a result of our Europa League participation:
Not many people particularly like Monday evening matches – they're bad for supporters who attend because it usually ends up being a very late night during the work week, and it's bad for people like us who blog from America because the matches fall smack in the middle of a work day when most of us have day jobs. But this is more or less par for the course for the congested match season in a typical Premier League spring.
It does mean though that the UK broadcast media are finally taking a Tottenham Hotspur title run seriously, and Spurs supporters who DON'T attend the matches will be able to watch them on Sky. Maybe the English are figuring out how to television after all.
