The whole Tottenham saga could even put Crossrail back with an exodus of electricians walking away because of higher rates offered to get the stadium completed, a move which has backfired.

It's a golden period to be an electrician in London.

Tottenham are now requesting special dispensation to switch a possible League Cup 3rd round game should they be drawn at home, Wembley isn't available during the week of the 3rd round ties which leaves reversing the fixture or finding another neutral ground.


They allowed Newport to do it, so I can't see why they can't allow Spurs to.

The absolutely will be allowed to switch it - however, if they are drawn at home, they will have to compensate their opponents for lost revenue;
Tottenham v Macclesfield is worth a lot more to Macclesfield than a home fixture.

Indeed, Cheltenham received compensation from West Ham last season as their stadium was not available for the second round tie.
There would have been no payment if we had a home draw

Re: [Towlawtom] Tottenham new ground opening delayed [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I see both Brentford and AFC Wimbledon are hoping to move into their new stadiums midway through the 2019/20 season. Presumably playing the 1st half of next season in their current grounds and then switching for the second half.
Are there any rules covering this in the EFL?
If Brentford are promoted at the end of this season then theyíll be in exactly the same position as Tottenham are this season i.e. starting in one stadium and then switching to another.

EFL and Premiership have different rules - you are allowed to switch in the EFL.

Presumably if promoted, Brentford will have to play the entire season at Griffin Park. Unless they claim the new stadium will be ready for the start of the season and move back the opening date in small increments!

However, one complication - Brentfordís current home doesnít meet Premiership standards - they claim it will cost £3m to address that.

Maybe they can move in with Fulham/QPR until their new ground is ready.

The above survey can be used by you to make the case for Twickenham being used to stage the League Cup game, should Spurs be drawn at home (Wembley will be unavailable)

They should speak with the LLDC and get London Stadium - the owners are likely to say yes, just to wind-up WHU.

Wembley, Twickenham, London Stadium! Why the need for such a large ground to host a LC 3 game? Just take it to MK.

MK is unpopular with everyone (not just AFC Wimbledon fans) and Tottenham fans would not want to go there, even if for just one game. Twickenham's large capacity would not matter - they could open only the lower tier if necessary.

I'm pretty sure MK has been mentioned before elsewhere as a possible venue but they could always try Brighton (againSly)

Donít Spurs already play games at Stevenage, so why not there as they will play their second XI in the LC rd3

Going from one extreme to the other though because with a capacity of just 6,722 there would be complaints from many unable to get in.

The capacity may be even lower than that at present as Stevenage are building a new stand behind one goal.

Although Spurs may field a reserve team, it will still officially be a first team game.

Can I please appeal to everyone to enter the survey (if you have not yet done so) and use it to ask for the game to be played at Twickenham.

Why should anyone want it to be played at Twickenham? Surely the original idea of switching a possible home draw to their opponents' ground is the most logical approach.

Ticking the venue may be the answer to wanting game played at Twickers.Sly

If Watford don't get a home Draw in R3, assuming they beat Reading in R2, then Vicerage Road would be an option.

It would only be marginally more acceptable to Spurs fans than MK. Playing at Twickenham would be attractive to Spurs fans because it isn't associated with any rival Premier League club. I'm sure quite a few Spurs fans will have put Twickenham on their survey responses, as well as groundhoppers.

If Spurs fans are really that against sharing another PL ground then there is always Brentford. This is a LC tie and isn't going to attracted 70,000 fans to fill Twickenham.

There is the option to ensure Tottenham get an away draw, thus making this issue go away. A numbered ball in the microwave for 30 seconds would ensure Tottenham are drawn away.

I really donít understand the desire some people have for Spurs to play at Twickenham

Even if 100% of people voted for it - I canít imagine the owners are going to break the habit of a lifetime and let a football club use it.

Especially when there are probably a dozen alternatives within a thirty-mile radius.

The simplest solution is to reverse the fixture - but having blown the best part of £1billion on the new stadium, Levy begrudges handing over a few hundred thousand as compensation.
