I wonder if the new tv contract coming into operation next season is anything to do with this? Anyway Saturday night is for most people for socialising or watching Strictly. Football attendance is, a wise man said, a habit. Saturday afternoon and midweek evenings. Break that habit and schedule games all over the place e.g. Friday nights, weekend early kick offs and you infringe on other habits e.g. golf, the pictures etc. I think fans views on this across the football world are pretty consistent re mucking game times around.
