In shambolic statement fans given new information on when Tottenham v Newcastle will be played
The Tottenham v Newcastle match was moved for TV to Friday 16 March.
However, it was then left with no date when Spurs instead played Swansea in the FA Cup that weekend.
Supporters were told to expect news on the new match date at the beginning of this week (Monday 19 March).
However, no such news was forthcoming.
This afternoon though has brought an announcement from Newcastle United, revealing that as well as the Everton away match suddenly being moved (after we were told April live TV choices had been completed in late February), there is no definite date being released for the Tottenham v Newcastle match.
Instead, we are now told that the Spurs away game will be ‘part of May’s broadcast selections, which will be announced in early April.’
Quite incredible, almost as though they take fans for granted…
Newcastle’s remaining games are below and currently they are due to play West Brom at home on Saturday 28 April, then Watford away on Saturday 5 May and Chelsea home on Sunday 13 May.
Chelsea won’t be moved even if it is on TV as all final day games kick-off together, whilst West Brom shouldn’t move…so Watford could also end up moved for live TV.
As for Spurs, it appears we are looking at midweek between West Brom and Watford, or midweek between Watford and Chelsea.
Either way, Newcastle are set to play four games in a 15 days apart time period, five games in 20 days apart period if you take in Everton now.
