Leeds United fans continue to be messed around with yet another fixture change to the 2012/13 season.

The trip to Hull City on Saturday December 29th is the latest to be moved with the game now kicking off at 12.30pm.

Leeds fans have grown used to seeing fixtures moved either for TV coverage or on Police advice for many years now.

Last season Leeds had fifteen games moved for these reasons and some of them were the longest trips of the season, giving no consideration to the fans.

Just 18 out of their 46 games took place on a Saturday at 3pm.

The opening day saw Leeds make the long trip to Southampton for a teatime kick off and their fans had the same task in the return fixture in March.

Leeds fans also had to make trips to West Ham (Sunday lunchtime), Brighton (Friday night), Reading (Good Friday) and Cardiff (Saturday lunchtime).

The trip to Hull is the eighth game to be moved already in the first half of the season.

Leeds do not have a Saturday 3pm kick off away from home between the trip to Bristol City on September 29th and Barnsley on January 12th, a run of seven away games.

Fans can once again look forward to negotiating the M1 and M25 on a Friday afternoon as the trip to Brighton is once again taking place on a Friday evening at the request of Sky TV.

Sky TV has also chosen the game at Millwall in November and that game will now kick off on a Sunday lunchtime.

I think the Football League should just give the fixture list to Sky TV and the Police first before releasing it in future.
