West Brom fans have got a lot to be delighted with this season. The Baggies look like they’re going to be making a return to the promised land of the Premier League very soon, but as they sit near the top of the league their games are always going to be wanted for TV coverage.

However, this is not what the fans want to see, and those that go to games will often be hit by the inconvenience of cancelling travel arrangements because of games that have been chosen for TV coverage, which looks to be the case here.
The Baggies have been selected for TV coverage when they take on Millwall, and as the club have posted of the fixture change, a lot of the fans have angrily reacted to the news, which is commonplace amongst match-going fans of Championship and EFL clubs.

At least its a Sunday, just slightly earlier than 3pm, and not a midweek game.

The fans are quite clearly annoyed at the fixture change, but this is just part and parcel of modern football.
