  1. Doesn’t every team do this except for the 1/2 that run away with it ala Norwich this season. Swansea in 2nd were inconsistent upto the last 5/6 games
  2. It’s almost like a bit of rest and a couple of our best players being back available made the difference. imagine if we had a full squad?
  3. Why even touch firsts, it’s unnecessary? Asked this earlier and didn’t get an answer, what does a “bubble” mean? They aren’t all in a bubble any more than I am with my work colleagues. We all go home to our families at the end of the day - and they mix with whoever they need to etc . It’s not the same as not hugging your family! You live with them. These players (mostly) aren’t living together. They haven’t been testing twice weekly in the EFL, premier league might have. Tbh though I agree, amongst everything else they are doing, the goal celebration doesn’t make much diff
  4. It doesn’t matter where it’s from though really, if it gets in and spreads to the rest of the team it’s putting more people at risk through what is non-essential socialising. The players might be ok if they are fit and healthy, the coaches/back room staff and / or their families maybe not so?
  5. There's a lot of things people used to do that were unsafe and "just got on with" that wouldn't be allowed now. It's not a valid argument to beat modern day players with that someone used to do it 30 years ago so why not now.
  6. Too many people stuck in the past, just because they used to do something doesn't make it right. Sports science has come on a long way since then
  7. What a strange comment. Do footballers not run in training? Also the constant twisting, turning, stop and start nature in sport is very hard wearing on the body. "Real" athletes - I assume you're talking runners? Generally run at a consistent pace, in a single direction. That's not even considering the kicks and knocks that footballers pick up along the way. I agree with perspective that complaining about football seems insensitive at the moment, but have none of you moaned at work in the last 12 months about work load or expectations? I can tell you I have, doesn't mean I care any less
  8. I take this back (too late to edit?) I thought from OP that they were playing again with 48 hours, they’re playing 4 days later that’s not that extreme. They may have had to change their plans but players have enough time to recover. Tottenham played Sunday so have one less day. I shall read more before commenting next time!
  9. I’ll accept I’ve made a lot of assumptions so I could be well off the mark and will hold my hands up if I am.
  10. You’re not wrong, but how soon before the game. I genuinely don’t know but I am guessing they’d have to get tested a couple of days before to insure results arrive back in time? Again an assumption that they use PCR testing and they go off to the same labs as us? I hope they aren’t using the questionable lateral flow tests. Assuming the whole squad didn’t bubble up and live in one house after administering the test I’m not sure that provides any guarantee? I think the regular testing helps, but it also gives a false sense of security - as they say a negative test only means you didn’t hav
  11. I get the sentiment but it’s just not the same. In an ideal world you wouldn’t put anyone through what NHS staff are going through if you could avoid it. This situation could have been avoided. Or can we never complain about anything because someone else is always worse off?
  12. It always ceases to amaze me how people can’t understand the physicality of a busy schedule and the importance of proper recovery. Their salary has naff all to do with it either.
  13. In fairness, it's well documented now that the virus spreads much more inside with no ventilation. No other workplace in the land is allowed that many people in a room that size right now and everyone playing at grassroots level before the lockdown had limits on numbers of people in changing rooms at the same time. There's a big difference between 20-30 minutes in a packed changing room and brief encounters at a corner/free kick
  14. As someone who commented on that thread, I can see from your posts since there was no malice intended and was meant in good humour. This made me laugh fair play, and I have beard envy
