According to the article, there's an NFL game on the 28th. What are the odds?

Any chance of a synopsis NT, I'd rather not click that.

So in English that's Tottenham have been blocked from moving their game with Man City to the Etihad?

No, that's the game that was supposed to be at Spurs' stadium. The game on 28th is still booked for 28th at Wembley.

Spuds should be docked 4 points for this according to PL rules. Who wants a bet they won't (and can you imagine if it was us?).

If we were given a 3-0 walkover, could we argue that it's detrimental to us if we're scoring for fun in other games? If the rumour mentioned above about them needing to sell in the next 14 days is true, it could be to their advantage to throw the game rather than face a drubbing.

What is happening to spurs will set a precedent for the next team to get a new ground. Maybe Chelsea will be most interested as they will be demolishing Stamford Bridge to build a new ground so it's pretty much the same, if Abramobitch eventually puts his dummy back in. There will be heavy sanctions next time, however, spurs will be let off with everything this time, it's guaranteed.

Course they will. Nailed on mate.
And on another note Scousecunts have arranged a candlelit vigil to show solidarity for their poor fellow title chasing no-hopers as they go yet another week without a proper ground to their name. All donations can be sent to stanley.
I wish there was a way to know you are in the good old days....before you've actually left them...

Now being reported by the Daily Mail that the game will be moved to the Monday night and played at Wembley.

I presume Spurs will lay on free coaches for City fans travelling, given it was their incompetence that created this mess.

And their fan numbers should be capped at WHL levels for the game, with the extra capacity available for City fans and/or charities of City's choosing.

80,811 against us in April, and 4 of their last 7 games had over 75K, with away fans capped at 3,000.

Indeed it does, but an average PL attendance of 68,052, up from 31,639 the previous season, suggests a massive increase in numbers. Also, the 89.8% capacity uptake against us is higher than their average for WHL the season before, which was around 87.2%.

The new stadium will have a capacity of 62,000. I don't think it's fair that all of a sudden an extra 28,000 seats become available to Spurs fans for this game because the club has been unable to fulfill its obligations (and potentially inconvenienced thousands of travelling fans), even if just 1 of those seats is taken up.

before they moved to wembley, they had c23k season ticket holders at whl with a waiting list of c60k.
if all of those 60k were serious about getting season tix then they should be filling wembley week in week out, especially when you take into consideration the additional number of fans who go to only one / a few games a season.
58k for the first home game of the season and a london derby kicking off at 3pm is embarrassing.
