The West Brom games against Birmingham City and Leeds United in December have been rearranged.
The good thing is that the days stay the same. The game against Birmingham will now kick-off at 12.30pm on December 14, while the Leeds game will kick-off at 5.15pm on New Year’s Day.
It’s not surprising. They’re both massive games and the Baggies are top of the league but some fans are not happy at the number of games Sky are showing.
The news was announced on the official West Brom Twitter page on Wednesday afternoon and was greeted with mock shock from the fans.

Some fans are happy about the New year’s Day game being on later, though, with one fan saying he can stay up late on New Year’s Eve and still catch the game.
However, the Birmingham game at 12.30pm? You can understand why they’ve done it but it’s not going to make the fans of either side happy.
Here are the best reactions from West Brom fans:
Sky ruin the blues game but Leeds at home Thano god I can stay up till 4 am
