Hull postponed and their match was supposed to be on Sky main event. Same for the Championship game Sky were meant to show as the main event Wednesday night.  I'm afraid, in that context, the 'it's on TV' argument just adds to the appearance of inconsistency.

But why should WE have to field a weakened team when literally EVERY OTHER FOOTBALL CLUB has been allowed to postpone?

Sheff Utd had a player with a false positive and the EFL didn't want to take any chances.

You leave me out of this!

Proving what point? Someone who has always followed their own stupid rules and called others out for not doing so, why would they need to make any sort of point to SG. Should be all the other bent **** owners in this league getting this sort of treatment

So interestingly, they're changing the rules for the loanees but explicitly not for Connolly which just seems doubly stupid.

Appalling from the EFL

EFL are proving a point to Gibson to show them they can do what they want after Gibson has challenged them so many times (rightly or not).

Majority of other games have been postponed with 48hrs notice or a day notice and yet we are still sitting ducks and been told to play.

Shambles all over but the EFL are showing their teeth and proving a point to Mr Gibson.

Unfortunately us fans are made to suffer and can prove be vital later in the season. 

TV or no TV, this game should be called off like all the other games in the English football League.

19 players yes 19 players and staff unavailable for tomorrow!

I suppose the reasoning would be that those players are already your players.  If they allowed Connolly to play then theoretically a club could sign loads of players to help get them through but obviously some clubs wouldn't be in a position to do that so it would be unfair I guess.

Should have been either play the game or forfeit right from the start.

If I was Wilder, I'd be getting one of the lads with Covid to do everyone's tests. Oh look at that, we're all positive... Sos EFL.

But unfortunately I am not very wild, so I won't do that.

It wasn't New Years Day where they'd get more viewers. It's also Hull which less people will tune into watch.

Difference with Wednesday is there was multiple games on at the same time so they could easily switch to another.

12.30pm kick off they can't move a fixture forward a few hours.

The window will be open before the game is played. In theory he could be signed if there was a desire from the EFL

actually pisses me off.

Theres games getting called off left right and center even upto the day of the game, but nope we have 19 players and staff out with covid and still have to play and if we dont they'll deduct us 3 points just to make us an example again...

 

absolute *** the EFL are, they've always had it out for us and always will.

No, I know that mate.  I'm saying it could encourage teams to sign players to help them get through it.  Recalling your own players at least is just bringing players that are already yours back into the squad.  I'd say there is a distinction there, albeit not a massive one.

    • It’s going to be a hard transfer window and I think people may be expecting miracles. If we are to go up automatically we need to find an extra 20 or 18 points, a big, big ask. So the question would be, how much is the club willing to invest for a play off. To get up there we need to be out the blocks quickly and remain consistent and I don’t see that happening bedding in new players. The other question is how many quality players do we need and are they available, more likely, possibly not.  Realistically if we do well in the transfer market I’ll settle for the playoffs. 
    • 2 goals in 26 games in Turkey demonstrates his goal scoring prowess, if this floats your boat  - fair enough. A resource who costs far more than his worth.
    • happy for Sunderland, about time they got out of the third tier. so, thats another to add to the play off hopefulls next year
    • considering the attitude and quickness to fault pick on posts that dont match thier view that a fair few of the more prolific posters on here, have. thats a bold statement and i admire you for stating your opinion, which in all fairness is quite an accurate assessment.  if we get the Ben Gibson of the AK era ,then im not against resigning him but his form at the first half of this recent season was not a patch on that. add to that his wilderness years at burnley and the fee/wages ,well yep im in with the dont sign crowd. hes got most of the boxes ticked and tbh im not bothered wether hes more suited to a flat back four system, we could and most likely would do a lot worse in our choice.of alternatives.  personally i would take a gamble on ryan porteous from hbs , young(23), agressive, leader, brave and good in the air and with the ball on the ground, i say gamble purely because hes had off field issues and fall outs with management.
    • Have you heard any names of our transfer targets or which players we're most likely to cash in on? The Gazette seem very keen on discussing Darlow and Lenihan so it seems that there's some substance there.
