Newcastle United live TV matches haven’t done so well so far.

Six games beamed out live and Newcastle losing five of them, only the 0-0 draw at Cardiff producing a relatively ok result.

Burnley away on Monday 26 November is the next scheduled live match for NUFC.

However, we are set to find out this week just how many have been chosen for December and January.

Friday (12 October) is the scheduled date (see all scheduled dates for the release of live TV fixtures below) when Premier League and broadcasters are set to announce the Newcastle United live TV matches that have been chosen for December and January.

The 11 matches under threat are:

Saturday 1 December 2018

Newcastle v West Ham (3pm)

Wednesday 5 December 2018

Everton v Newcastle (7.45pm)

Saturday 8 December 2018

Newcastle v Wolves (3pm)

Saturday 15 December 2018

Huddersfield v Newcastle (3pm)

Saturday 22 December 2018

Newcastle v Fulham (3pm)

Wednesday 26 December 2018

Liverpool v Newcastle (3pm)

Saturday 29 December 2018

Watford v Newcastle (3pm)

Tuesday 1 January 2019

Newcastle v Man Utd (3pm)

Saturday 12 January 2019

Chelsea v Newcastle (3pm)

Saturday 19 January 2019

Newcastle v Cardiff (3pm)

Wednesday 30 January 2019

Newcastle v Man City (7.45pm)

I would guess that Liverpool away and Man Utd home must be pretty much nailed on to be chosen, whilst Mitro’s return to SJP just before Christmas is a live contender.

Chelsea away and Man City home are also no doubt likely to be served up to a worldwide audience.

For fans who go to games, you would hope the likes of Everton at home and Man City away will be chosen, as they are already set for night kick-offs, so likely to be no change to day/time if selected.

These are the games that have been scheduled so far for live broadcast for NUFC this season:

Saturday 11 August

Newcastle 1 Tottenham 2

Saturday 18 August

Cardiff 0 Newcastle 0

Sunday 26 August

Newcastle 1 Chelsea 2

Wednesday 29 August

Nottingham Forest 3 Newcastle 1 (League Cup)

Saturday 1 September

Man City 2 Newcastle 1

Saturday 6 October 5.30pm

Man Utd 3 Newcastle United 2

Monday 26 November 8pm

Burnley v Newcastle (Sky Sports)

    We have two midweek away games coming up shortly including Burnley for the third season in a row and Everton has been a popular mid week one over the years. We do not need anymore midweek ones that is for sure. Even so come Friday most of the cheap train tickets will have gone for many games so no help at all.

    We should boycott the three home games in December for the run up to christmas, West Ham, Woives and Fulham and let the FCB know that next season this is what he will have to look forward to. When Rafa has gone and we have all had enough he will be looking at NUFC being far less of a draw for the TV as he has naffed off the very people who make NUFC what it is THE FANS.

    Games should be set from the outset. Not fair on supporters otherwise. But then, what do footballing bosses and TV supremos seemingly care? Not much otherwise, this would never happen.
