Isn’t this a regurgitated story that had no credibility when it was first published?
As it’s The Mail I wouldn’t be surprised.
Having said that I’ve not bothered to read it for thinking it’s probably click bait.
trouble with this is if Brighton beat Millwall, then to guarantee being able to fit the fixtures in we would have to play either Palace or Brighton midweek before the semi's. by sounds of it the met don't want us playing midweek for our opening match.
lets hope Millwall win, to guarantee we can play Brighton on the 7th, which then if UEFA allow us to change it won't matter if drawn home or away 1st leg (hopefully away)
