Tottenham Hotspur announced last week that their brand new 62,000 seat stadium’s grand opening would be delayed for at least a couple of months.
The new ground, on the site of the old White Hart Lane, was due top open against Liverpool on September 15, but issues with the critical safety systems has delayed schedules.
Now games against Liverpool and Cardiff have been moved to Wembley, and rumours are circling that the delays could continue until as late as February 2019.
To make matters even worse for Spurs fans, rival supporters have now set up a petition on change.org over a possible points deduction for Tottenham.
The 10,000 strong people signing up claim that Spurs have caused uncertainty around upcoming fixtures, which is worthy of a deduction.
Tom Smith, the account holder who set up the petition, stated in his description: “This is an issue that Tottenham and their owner Daniel Levy have known for some time but they continued to lead their own fans and the public up the garden path, surely the FA have to punish them for their actions, a smaller club would receive a points deduction, so what makes Tottenham an exception to this?”
Mr DT of ArsenalFanTV has even tweeted the petition from his personal twitter account.
A bit of tongue-in-cheek fun, or do people think there is a legitimate chance of a point deduction?
