I don't like it.

Was out on Friday night and the match was on. Really took away from a Friday night atmosphere in the pub.

Friday night games...

Me neither. It was tried before when the BBC had live matches (!) and I remember Tony Woodcock putting us in front at OT then me having to go out and missing the rest of the game. Just as well, we lost 4-2 or something. It was dropped because no one liked it but at that time of course the clubs probably only made 50 quid out of it!

Lower league clubs tried to play on Fridays because their gates were affected by local first division / Premierleague matches in their area. Then as T.V got their hands on early and late kick offs and Sunday and Monday matches c/w European games on Tuesday , Wednesday and Thursday it was inevitable that they would want Friday as well.
