I thought they were at the new stadium this season, haven't they finished it yet?

They're supposed to be in it now. It looks like it won't be ready till after Christmas.

Premier League rules dictate that ALL your home games must be played at the same ground. Spuds had to get a concession from the PL to play the first few games away and the 1st "home" game at Wembley. You can guarantee these "darlings" get another concession to postpone games or play at another ground.

Exactly. They should be made to hold their games at the new stadium. Does.nt take long to lay a pitch and if its unsafe for spectators then spuds play behind closed doors or with whatever spectators are deemed safe. Fuck em.

I bet if we were in that position we'd have the book thrown at us. Whats the use in having PL rules if they can be flouted because Daniel Levy tried to do it on the cheap

That's the FA sorted for use of Wembley, but presumably a further arrangement would be required with the PL for bending their rules.

They'll be already ready. And if they're not then the players slum it for a day. Anyhow, its still a month until the original opening was scheduled. As you can probably tell, I have fuck all sympathy for spuds and I would make them pay harshly. Truth be told I think there is a case for them to forfeit the points as they cant fulfill the fixture
