Those away games to Queen of the South and Ayr are a nightmare for 7.05 on a Friday night.  Would be bad enough at 7.45.

If you're going to swerve away games then these two have worked out not too badly being live on the BBC. Good wee trips on a Saturday at 3pm but maybe not so much on a Friday at 7.05pm.

I doubt a Dundee derby will ever played on a Saturday again. It'll be Friday night every time this season and after that it's the Premiership and Nou Campy for Dundee and financial meltdown and liquidation for the dabs.

We could have 2 home games on the trot  moved and on TV. Morton and the DABs.

F**k TV football.

That's five of our first twelve on Friday. The first game in the next tranche is a derby, so that will be six out of thirteen.

From a selfish point of view - having 3 away games I was unlikely to go to on tele I'm happy with.

United game moving to Friday was always going to happen. At least it is 7.45pm k/o

7pm kick off for Morton home game is pish for me coming from Edinburgh after work and will mean I miss it.

So some wins and some losses for me. What a lot of sh**e though having first division football on the tele. Another kick in the nuts for fans who actually want to go to games. If you were to ask fans of first division clubs to decide if games should be shown on tele I would guess over 95% would be against it.

There is zero thought to fans views regarding Scottish football. All about getting a few extra quid.

Unless the team are ripping it up not sure this is going to do anything for attendance at matches and in fact could be a negative .

Football authorities wonder why "out of town" supporters, and others, are reluctant to buy season tickets. Go figure.

I love a Friday night game. The atmosphere at the games are always better but I understand why people might struggle to get to them.

Quite partial to a friday game too, it kind of buggers up saturdays though. The early kick off is a bit of a pest though.

I've been reminded that each club can only be shown at home twice by the BBC. So choosing the home game against Morton that rules out one of the home derbies. However, it might be chosen by Sky or BT.

The 19:05 kick-offs in Dumfries and Ayr are lousy for the media team. We're just volunteers, not paid employees. It means taking the afternoon off each time, and some simply won't be able to do it. We'll be setting off not long after lunch.

Take Arbroath away which will certainly be on tv.

lets say we are top of the league.

id say 3000 would make the trip on a Saturday afternoon 

a Friday night on the tv and you could half that.

Thats Arbroath losing 20-25k in gate receipts...

Least they get there 8k from the BBC

It’s understandable if you miss it

I'm not whining (really). Being on the media team is a great gig. But the unwritten code of honour is that if you can get to the crappy away games then you turn up for them in order to justify all the other perks. It wouldn't work if people only agreed to do the attractive ones.

Prefer a Friday night to a Sunday midday and in fairness the only away game from those I'd have been at is the derby and I'll still be going that anyway, so not much hassle for me.

Saturday and 3pm is still where it's at though.
