Another announcement on Newcastle United live TV matches is due to be made today (Tuesday 12 December).
The games to be moved/broadcast in February set to be revealed, although the dates (see below) the Premier League and broadcasters have given in advance (as to when live matches will be announced) have not always been followed.
The lead up to the revealing of the Christmas fixtures being especially embarrassing, as clubs (and supporters, MPs, media) made their displeasure known about the TV companies trying to force games to be played on Christmas Eve, meaning an even longer delay in announcing the live games for December and January.
There have been 10 Newcastle United live TV matches so far, with two more also already scheduled, both against Manchester City…
The three under threat in the next upcoming announcement are:
Crystal Palace v Newcastle (Sat 3 February 2018 – 3pm)
Newcastle v Man Utd (Sat 10 February 2018 – 3pm)
Bournemouth v Newcastle (Sat 24 February 2018 – 3pm)
The Manchester United one must be a knocking bet judged on how often this fixture has been chosen previously, though it would be no great surprise to see Bournemouth away moved to a Friday night or Sunday lunchtime, just to keep our hardcore away fans on their toes!
