'We are Sky Sports FC' - Some West Brom fans react to latest schedule change
West Brom’s Championship showdown against Swansea in December has been moved to a Sunday so that it can be broadcasted live on Sky Sports.
Albion announced via their official website on Wednesday that they will now play against the Swans at The Hawthorns on December 8 with kick-off being at 12pm. It was previously scheduled to be a regular 3pm kick-off on Saturday.
Since suffering relegation to the Championship, the Baggies have been one of the most-aired teams in the league.
In the coming weeks, West Brom are due to play against Stoke, Bristol City and Preston North End live on Sky Sports, but fans can now add their clash against Swansea to that ever-growing list.
Albion fans on Twitter are not exactly pleased about the fixture being changed, even though it is something that they should have become used to by now.
After seeing the announcement on the club’s official Twitter account, a number of supporters were quick to vent their anger while others have taken it as a sign of how well they are doing in the league.
Here is a selection of their tweets below:
