Have we ever won a game on BT Sports? I can't remember one.

Hi Colin. I think the Southampton and Chelsea games earlier this season were on BT Sport. Won those. Not sure about others.

I prefer Monday evening games in Sky. We haven't lost one of those in around 15 matches. Drawn a few!

And Newcastle. This season the list is endless....or maybe not.

Why don't we request more games for the 5:30pm slot on a Saturday, especially at Goodison?

It's always a more lively encounter, I just can't get going for these 12:45 games against the big guns.

That's an early start for me from Grimsby.

Great for the club to be shown (adding to that tv-money, right'?) and for us toffee foreigners!

I hope we show a great game, showing the world we mean business. COYB.

Yet another game that I can't watch despite paying for the Sky Sports package.

At least I got my Sky bill cut in half this week when I said I wanted to cancel.

Brian, cut in half? I got €15 off mine for six months up to April. You must have used some serious charm to get a 50% discount.

Minik (#5), whether the game is shown on BT or Sky or not doesn't really affect us overseas toffees, it's your local TV provider that determines whether you will see the game or not.

Oh well Brian #8.

You can't watch the Arsenal home despite having Sky Sports?

There are other ways.

It's called 'using a turnstile'.

Oh well, that's my pub session brought forward... wife's going to be chuffed naturally.

(I binned Sky years ago.)

Eric, then I must say we're lucky here in Nuuk, Greenland. They show any game that has it's own kick-off time and a couple of games with the same kick-off time – if that makes sense. We've got Danish sport channels Kanal 6, TV3 sport 1 & 2 for the Premier League games.

Sky generally don't let you leave unless you absolutely insist, they will give you gradually better offers until you're put through to the retentions team who will do anything to make you stay with them.

You have to call their bluff to some degree. Tell them you've booked a date for Virgin to be installed and they'll shit their pants. (Don't actually get Virgin though!)

Can't you have both Sky and BT?

I didn't realise you lived in Nuuk! I've often thought it might be the place I'd retreat to after commiting some horrible crime.

Shane @8,

They first offer a 10% discount first, you tell them no I still want to disconnect. They pass you on to someone else who might give you 20-30% off. Then they say okay we will pass you on to cancellation dept who offer you another discount.

You really have to call their bluff, but if you play hardball you will eventually get it at 50% off, (I got mine for 9 months at that price) although I must have spent an hour on the phone.
