    They've done you a favour there. It's proper grim.

    We paired up the game there with a night out in Stoke afterwards, once. Jeez, what a place.

    There wouldn't be any public transport after an evebing kick-off on Christmas Eve.

    But there would for an afternoon kick-off.
    There's none all day on boxing day.

    I agree with you. I was really commenting on the viability of an evening kick-off. An afternoon kick-off would seem unlikely with the Tigers kicking off at 3 though.

    Both teams aren't supposed to play on the same day, no matter what times they kick off. I'm sure there was an exception made a few years ago when one team had an early (1PM?) kick off, and the other had a late kick off.

    The mockery say it won't happen, so it probably will.

    Surely we can just point out that the Rugby doesn't matter so they call it off and we can kick off whenever.

    7th May 2011. Both teams played at home on the same day.
    The proper football team kicked off at 12:45PM, the egg chasers ay 3PM. It was the final day of the season so the matches had to be played on that day.

    Isn't the Tigers game on BT so there's no way BT will change to accommodate Sky.

    The early kick off is the one one I can see working but Sky not want that as people are usually out and about and as Homer says when are we males gonna do our Christmas shopping

    Last Christmas Eve I witnessed a man throw up in a polystyrene bowl then accidentally pour it over his own face. That's what Xmas eve is about, not fuckin sport.

    Feck knows. I'm sure the handful of people who would be watching haven't pencilled it in as being on tv yet.

    May 2011 was before Tigers built their latest stand and increased their capacity. Am sure police, council etc have said that city and tigers wouldn't be allowed to play on the same day (even at different times) due to traffic gridlock/access to Royal Infirmary.
    And as already pointed out it appears that Tigers will be live on BT on 24th so there is no way that either Tigers or BT Sport will move that match.
    For once the mockery might be right about something

    It was 2009 when they brought in the thing about both teams not playing on the same day.
    Here's the thread from the time - https://talkingballs.uk/index.php?t...-night-sun-afternoon-games-next-season.27187/
