We’ve won it five times recently to be fair to us.
^^^ I'm not sure people are aware of the ramifications of this if they've just looked at the headline. Could have implications for the PL, and then there'd be uproar.
Authorities need to have a grip on this after last season. No excuses.
If it can’t be done safely they will have to shutdown like other businesses.
But the article is implying as a possibility they won't. They'll sneak it. And then can you imagine the fallout from that if other teams get infected as a result.
And we've not even got going properly with the FA Cup.
As I said above, if this is going to be a problem scrap the cups. It sucks but some things take precedent.
Much easier to apply league bubbles then and keep everyone safe and things ticking over.
Sneak what, testing?
Not testing. It's not mandatory and according to the article clubs could not test on purpose so as to not jeopardise their game. Which I believe would be a possibility now they know fans aren't coming back to grounds.
Then imagine if one of them is positive and then in turn infects a PL team before a big game.
Plus to mention how unethical that would be; and football aside how wrong it is during a pandemic.
Well if it’s not mandatory, they are not being sneaky. If they infect anyone from any team that’s life, just like in normal life. Unless the competition makes it a rule.
I get your point, but football isn't special. Lower league teams now will be fretting over finances and desperate to keep playing, especially for lucrative ties like this. The FA Cup will be even more important.
If they purposely choose not to test when given the opportunity in order to carry on playing, then I consider that unethical. And placing others at risk. Personally I don't think it should be mandatory.
I know this is all hypothetical at the moment, but this is a worrying start. Just seen in the other thread as well about West Ham. It's only September. Disruption to this season will be an absolute disaster all round.
Yeah. He's a bit of an enigma is Pogba. Has real quality at times. But most of the time just seems either lazy or not fussed. Don't see anyone wanting to buy him now though so up to Ole to try and get the best out of himThink he’s had Covid since the day he signed for us tbf

Even if we only wanted £20mil we'd still make a mess of it somehow. Can't believe how incompetent we are in the market
The problem was handing out huge wages to those players. We gave Jones a new 4 year contract last year. And he played 139 minutes. Absolutely astonishing. No wonder we can't shift him.
