But still not confirm ‘for logistical reasons’. What a ****ing shambles.

How come the Official Site has got them down as confirmed changes?

There is some serious libelling of Mrs Shares on this thread. She is a lovely lady who very kindly gave me and her ungrateful husband a lift to and from Luton Airport for the second Astra game. :thup:

I wouldn't be surprised if the problem with the Spurs fixture is that Wembley is struggling to staff an 70k event with so many of those used to stage events are already committed to NYE events be it in London or elsewhere later that day, possibly that is the logistical issue?

Maybe Spurs will have to reduce the capacity for the game to go ahead on NYE which is why they have caveat for their fans but as our allocation is unaffected there is no need for us to mention it, just a thought?

Just been chatting with Spurs trust pal, it’s stewards apparently. They are offering double time but aren’t getting enough takers at the moment. Gut feeling is that it will be NYE.

are these canutes for real

we wait ages for our new paymasters to tell us the date and time of the match only for them to include a rider that the changed date and time is subject to confirmation

for xxxx sake sort it out

its hard enough watching the football at the moment let alone with these t*ssers screwing us around

In case you were wondering, Spurs away still doesn’t have a confirmed kick off time.

WHUISA have been in contact with our Spurs oppose and “other stakeholders” (sound familiar?) are holding up the process.

The clubs to be fair are pushing for confirmation but no one cleared it with all the necessary groups to make it happen.

Who’d be a tenant eh?

With the six week rule I'm guessing the Spurs game has to be finalised by this Sunday at the latest?

I've already booked a train down for the Sunday, if it gets moved back to the Saturday I'll just bin going to the game and have a day in London. What with this fiasco and West Hams acceptance of pitifully low allocations for Everton and Man City I'm a bit peeved with it all at the minute. Hundreds of fans have been denied tickets for those two games.

The Premier League have approved plans for a further 22-42 PL games to be televised when the next deal is made. Additional games likely to be played Saturday night (19:45-20:00 kick offs)

Saturday 3pm kick offs will be an even more endangered species

I'm not sure what's more of a joke....

The fact that the KO for this fixture is still up in the air.

Or the fact that West Ham fans are getting more advice and info from Tottenham than from their own club.

Becoming like the nfl when American rugby you can't call that "sport" football is played every day of the week and because of the huge time zone differences within the country all hours of the day

If it weren't for champions league no doubt the premiershit would be the same - hard to believe that there isn't too much tv saturation but presumably our overseas based brethren still can't get enough of watching city vs united - that's Manchester for us uninformed who assumed there was more than one united :D

Personally don't care whether a game is Saturday 3pm or Monday 8pm just want reasonable notice of the confirmed date and time so I can plan my life some of us still have to work

Oh and some public transport after a game in Liverpool etc of a nighttime would be helpful - fat chance of that investment in infrastructure

On that subject is Huddersfield away a confirmed date and time ?
