No date for the opening of the new stadium but definitely all the fixtures in February have been confirmed by the club as being played at Wembley.
Again, I believe that it was totally unrealistic for the club to expect that the new stadium could have been finished in just one year. What the club should have done is set aside two seasons at Wembley instead of this ongoing PR disaster.
The pressure and expectations were all self-inflicted. As it stands, I do not know why the club is still stringing the fans along – surely, there’s no point in hoping to open this season. Sigh.
Spurs have been drawn in Group B along with well-known European clubs like Barcelona (Spain), PSV Eindoven (Netherlands) and Inter Milan (Italy). Certainly, a challenging prospect for Pochettino and the team but definitely memorable ties are on the way.
Watford have sacked manager Marco Silva after a bad run of form (1 win in 11 games). Reportedly the board also fell out of order with the Portuguese, after Everton were reportedly interested for his services.
