Apparently 3 of our staff are some of those affected so doubt training will be on anyway for a whille.

Deeney has said he won’t return to training to protect his 5 month old son who has breathing difficulties.

Yes - seen that.

Club not saying any more.

Sure the media will find out though.

Mapps then, and he says he's been home during lock down and has no idea where he caught it.
He has tested positive with no symptoms so you do wonder how many of us have contracted a lite version but don't know it.?

Probably what you want. Essentially a personal vaccine. A small viral load to kick up the antibody factory, but not enough to overwhelm you.

The trick is not getting dead in the process :-)

Which is why the vulnerable are shielding for now.

Most people would be ok - just depends on who you pass it on too.

Trust us to be the club worse hit - any Italian coaches who might have home and got the virus ?

Now Mr Pozzo Snr has spoken out

It's good to be supportive of each other but don't think anyone is going to notice what we say because they all think we are trying to get the season cancelled.

We might as well just get on with it and ensuing everyone is well and safe.

These things only seem to get real attention if a top player or manger say it which won't happen.


Infact they are all "up for it"..

Kloop / Jose etc .

Been thinking, if they refuse to simply "cancel" the season, and insist on relegation and promotion between Prem and Cship, then they should keep things small and quick, and arrange a ten day secure campus for a simple playoff between Norwich, Villa, and top two in Cship.
Play a round robin and the top two are in the Prem next season. Everything else is scrapped..

2 more players isolating..

https://www.theguardian.com/football/20 ... uefa-plans

What about all the other clubs I wonder .. they all ok and happy ?

They will just ignore our issues unless the situation gets worse across the board.

BTW Are Liverpool never going to have a chance to win the league (which they will get regardless of a finished season or not..)?

The panic within their fans about the season ending is amazing - You'd think we were their title rivals a point ahead trying to get the season finished (yes because we hold that much power over English football..)

They will be one of the clubs least affected if the season got stopped....FA have said there will be Champions.

I wonder if clubs are just being neutral and are just playing the game right now, not knowing how to voice their thoughts and questions.?
Trouble is, they will eventually set a restart date for sometime in the future, but then 3 prem clubs at least will say... "No we can't start then as we have some senior players in isolation plus a few that have only trained properly for one week, plus a few players out with muscle strains, so it's no from us."
Who will set the rules and parameters for these issues over the coming weeks and what are the consequences of say 50 players saying No we are not restarting yet, and we have full support from the PFA.!
It's going to be a ridiculous waste of time and will end in a huge mess.

It will be interesting if there is an increase in cases or what if the season stops again?

Apparently they haven't decided if relegation will really happen yet !

Well we all know the bottom teams won't want that.

Doesn't seem so organised ATM.

I suspect Troy was hoping a few more might speak up but seems not .

Now we are kind of on our own looking like we are complaining for the sake it .

Not helped by the media headlines which is all people see.
