First sign of the tv money bubble bursting? Two packages unsold and internet platforms not bidding as expected.
I say burst - it will no doubt still match or even exceed the previous deal but the huge growth seen in the past appears gone. Perhaps itíll  give rise to more sensible actions from the clubs on their spending and treatment of match goers.
Or itís just going to widen the gap to the CL teams even further...

..................isn't part of the reason there is now some sort of wholesale deal between Sky and BT ? They don't have to bid against each other with the same aggression.

I'm liking the idea of the 7:45 Saturday night games. Then again it's easy for me to say it as an armchair fan, I won't be the one getting home at all hours from the away trips. Surely there'll be geographical considerations when choosing these and the Friday night games

You really think that Sky or BT give a flying fuck about travelling football fans getting home? Like the Premier league consider the fans when "completely randomly" selecting the fixtures for Boxing day or New Years day when public transport is fucking pony.

The top six, including Chelsea, want to negotiate their own rights to the overseas market as they feel they are the driving force behind the popularity of the Premier League overseas.

Ironic really when you consider that in the days of Division One Chelsea were the main force that wanted to stop the then big five, Everton, Liverpool, Manchester United, Spurs and Arsenal, to be stopped from continuing to negotiate TV rights in their favour as Chelsea and the rest of the Football League considered it unfair.

A threatened breakaway led by Chelsea, Sheffield Wednesday, Villa, and QPR would you believe, eventually led to the formation of the Premier League.

I can't help thinking that ourselves and Chelsea have practically swapped places in the football order of things. If only we were as ruthless as Chelsea are when we had the upper hand.

I'm so pleased BT are going to lose the 5-30 slot to Sky.  Savage and McManamanaman are the worst pundits on tv. You could get 2 blokes out of the Brick give more intelligent comments.

The BT coverage is pretty poor all across the board - the only one who says anything worthwhile is Chris Sutton.

Jermaine Jenas (or JJ, as he likes being called, which makes him sound like a reject from a boy band) would give Savage and McMannnnnaaaaman, a run for their money for worst pundit.

Why? What difference is there from Tuesday or Wednesday night games that kick off at 7.45? None as far as I can see.

True enough, never even dawned on me for some reason
