This was just an hour ago.

Which is before it was announced that Arteta had contracted it.

I'd not be surprised if they still ploughed ahead, but circumstances have changed again.

I had my test results back and they were positive for Covid-19.. So lucky that I just had the mild symptoms!! 

Hope everyone's doing well and keeping healthy! Haven't posted for a few months due to being busy and the lack of football, but had a gradual read through this thread. Crazy looking back at the f

My wife is self isolating due to the anti-cancer drugs she is on, which means we are sleeping in separate bedrooms, separate sofas etc,  I am shopping and cooking all the meals (which we both prefer),

Crazy how something that's literally only been in the public eye for 3/4 months has totally derailed people's lives and the footballing season. Wonder if EFL games will still persist or will that change if someone picks up symptoms after weekends round of fixtures

Says everything you need to know about the premier league that they've needed an actual confirmed case for them to actually take any action beyond "no shaking hands". Completely reactive again rather than be proactive, and completely money grabbing as usual without a care in the world that people will die.

It’s all about money and knock on contractual obligations in everything nowadays not just sport, acting unilaterally is out of the question for any sporting team as there now little sympathy as almost every club hangs by a very precarious financial thread.

solicitors will be combing various contracts with an eye for which clauses allow them to be broken without financial penalties. With La Liga acting in the way they have I expect most other top leagues will follow their example and once stopped they won’t start again till everything ok.

The Olympics will be the big one to watch, how they act will be the benchmark for others as they probably the richest organisation with the most urgent need to postpone/cancel followed by UEFA.

The Euros are almost certainly going to be moved to 2021.

The football calender is going to be completely out of sync for years now.

It's fully understandable with this virus, even if it's sad, but then the World Cup is in December in 2022 because of corruption.

    • I'm pretty sure too. If any coach / manager openly talked about throwing a game, one Tweet would be all it took to cause a huge scandal and put that person out of a job. But a canny one might pick a certain team and tactics that would guarantee they'd struggle. The players might think something was a bit funny...but there would be no proof of any shenanigans. 😉   In England's case though, I have to say Southgate strikes me as too honest a person. I'm sure he has way too much integrity to even consider something like that. But his cautious nature, team selections and tactics could end up having the same result. 🤷‍♂️  
    • Exactly... and even if we do draw and get an 'easy game' in the next round, there's  no guarantee we win it going in on poor form. Plus we would only have to play a strong team in the following round anyway, with Italy Belgium and whoever wins France's group on that side of the draw. You can't hide from the best sides for long in the Euros. Tonight's all about a good performance and getting the fans back on side for a home tie in the next round. It's guaranteed to be a tough game but we might as well fly home now if people are too scared to play Germany in a one off game. 
    • England need momentum and fast. Winning convincingly breeds that.    I’m pretty sure it’s only fans that discuss trying to plot an easier route through a tournament by throwing games. It’s a sure fire way for players to lose their confidence in their manager. a win is the only good result for England tonight.
    • Thats pretty much what I was thinking. They may not have scored many goals, but technically they're still a formidable team. I could see them running rings around England anyway.
