My take for what it's worth. And I can actually make either date. 

The money for Vale is lovely of course and can't be turned down. 

But I'm sick of Sky dictating to fans up and down the country. 

We've seen 12-30 Saturday games such as Southampton v Newcastle and Bournemouth v Middlesbrough. Utter contempt for the fans who have to get up at 3-30 am. 

The last Saturday home game for me ( being selfish here ) means a good few after match beers with my friends whether we are promoted, 14th or relegated. That's now gone as I'm in work at 6-00 on the Tuesday. 

I believe a contingent of North London valiants have already booked trains for the Saturday and I doubt its a huge number but Newport will have fans who have made arrangements. 

I remember the other year we'd booked trains to Euston for Millwall away only for it to be moved to Sunday as Sky showed Millwall autoglass game on the Thursday.  I couldn't make the Sunday. 

Of course it will suit plenty as the posts prove but I think it's poor fayre this late in the day.

Depending how many Newport are bringing and interest from home fans for this game I wonder if there could be any option to partition off the Hamil to let home fans in there too? Always seemed the stand you can make the best racket in and I reckon should add to the atmosphere.
