You know Christmas is approaching when the bumper edition of the Radio or TV times goes on sale in the shops.

Although those are still a few weeks from appearing, the TV companies have to give a longer notice now of their intention to show football matches live.

Today is supposedly that day when we can work our shopping or nights out around Newcastle playing home or away.

The period of games where any of them can change is rumoured to stretch for eleven games with a lot of talk recently about a Xmas Eve game being announced this year.

There was talk for a while that our trip to West Ham that is scheduled for Saturday 23rd December would move back a day but talk this morning all over social media and on Sky is that a Xmas Eve live game is not likely to happen although it’s not confirmed yet.

Games in that period that I personally think will move are Chelsea away, Everton home, Man City at home and maybe the return a month later but we’ll find out today hopefully.
