The new Tottenham Hotspur stadium shambles continues with the news that the club have had a request to switch our home fixture against Manchester City to an away fixture rejected by the Premier League.
According to The Sun, Spurs officials approached the Premier League about the possibility of playing the fixture at the Etihad stadium, due to an NFL match being played on Sunday October 28th at Wembley which is the same date that Spurs are due to play City.
The fixture was recently selected for live television coverage by Sky Sports and Premier League chiefs want Spurs, Man City, Wembley and Sky Sports all to find a new date for the match.
An alternative venue of Twickenham has been mooted, but this would break Premier League rules regarding a side playing their home fixtures in more than one designated stadium.
It certainly has been a week to forget for the club off the pitch.
