      Can’t see it taking that long for confirmation mate, the general public get pcr resilts in 24hrs so I’m sure the football won’t have to wait longer

      Three days for a PCR test.

      Yep, it doesn’t take 3 days unless labs are overwhelmed. I’d think EPL teams take priority and wouldn’t have to wait that long.

      Definitely some that slip through the net and take longer though. A bloke that works for me took 5 days to get his result back. I remember it perfectly because it annoyed the hell out of me and I was beginning to wonder if he was just trying to blag a bit of time off work…came back negative too which made it a bit more frustrating…not that I wanted it to be positive obviously, just mean that if you wait that long for the result it almost feels like it should have been positive.

      I always thought it was 5 days after symptoms pass (if symptomatic) or 10 days after a positive test (if no symptoms) but not sure. Also, I'm sure if they tested negative a couple of times they would likely be cleared. I could definitely be wrong though.


      Had covid in September and was told that I could not have PCR test for 90 days unless I was having systems again.

       So if a player was positive and comes back to work are they not going to take Pcr tests for 90 days from what i was informed in the those 90 days pcr can still come back positive and what happens when playing in CL were you have to provide a negative pcr to travel

      Not sure why you were told that. At my kids school, after a positive test they could come back after 2 more negative tests. They just had to wait 5 days before taking the 2 tests.

      Same for my son that's in college.

      My home test came back negative after covid, it’s the pcr tests that I could not take for 90 days. Your kids extra 2 test was it pcr or the home tests?

      Not testing within 90 days of a positive COVID-19 test will avoid unnecessary isolation. It is possible for PCR tests to remain positive for some time after COVID-19 infection as the test can pick up inactive viral fragments (which are not infectious).

      This means that anyone eligible for routine non-symptom rapid testing (LFT) should not participate in this testing until 90 days after a positive PCR Covid test.
      After 90 days have passed you should restart routine rapid testing.
      If you have completed 10 days of isolation and develop any new COVID-19 symptoms, you must self-isolate immediately and book a Covid test.

      If you do get tested within 90 days and the result of this test is positive, you and your household must self-isolate (unless exempt) and follow the Stay at home guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.

      He is right that is the guidance from the government as I have had to do that and have been refused entry to some care homes as they would not LFT me even though I did my own and was negative 10 days after leaving isolation which is odd.

      I’m sure there is a way around this, you can’t have had it 2 months ago and then not be able to travel for your work

      Let’s not get paranoid about everything

      Interesting article on how rare a signing (in terms of impact) Virgil has been.

      Starting to worry me a little Virgil of late I know he’s come back from a horrific injury which looks to have permanently impacted his mobility around the back line. However the other crucial elements to his game like the anticipation, positioning, and reading of the game have wained a little. These are all mental and psychological  in my opinion he needs to regain these asap if we’re a chance at any trophy.  We fielded 120m in centre backs 3 times this season and weren’t able to hold a winning position in any of them.

      Injury has changed him. Could see from the moment he came back. He's no longer the Virg we signed and that's through no fault of his own. Poor guy.

      For sure. Definitely lost a step. Also seems to not have his confidence back as of yet. Doesnt close out on attackers in the box like he use to. These type of injuries take time for most people. Some get back to full strength, others don't. Time will tell.

      I knew this injury wasn't going to be a year and done thing. The amount of damage to his knee that's going to take a lot more than a year for him to regain his trust. Yes, he can play on it and it's probably sound to do that, but I guarantee he still doesn't trust it the way he did before his injury. It's going to take him some time to get back to that level of confidence. And not trusting something that you never had to think about before will affect the rest of his game. It's taking attention from those other things you mentioned that he was so good at before.
