      It’s a bit of a joke that City are already back in training and have no new positive cases in the latest round of testing. Can see why Everton were pissed off now as it seems from the outside at least that the game should have gone ahead.

      If you have 14 fit players the rule was you play how on earth did Sheff Utd  have to play in same situation and why are names of affected people kept confidential  cant seem to remember us having to do that.  It stinks he had Walker and Jesus out so they have called it off can understand  why Everton pissed off and then Fulham follow suit . Good thing is City now have two games to cram in and I am convinced they will be our nearest challengers

      Joke some teams calling off refusing to name amounts of players and names watch people with agendas start piping up

      I see Man City returned to team training today - just couple of days after supposedly not being able to play their match. I guess that's one way to alleviate festive season fixture congestion.

      Jose fuming about Fulham's cancellation today as well.

      Just think its wrong if they could have met the 14 player guidelines with the small squad they have its a shambles and Spurs sat in hotel at 2 pm still not knowing. Like I said more games for them to cram in lets get the points on the board

      Will Anfield be behind closed doors again for home games with Liverpool entering tier 3?

      Yes

      Jürgen says NO to a circuit-breaker shutdown (which would break no CoVid circuits, btw).

      https://www.theguardian.com/football/2021/jan/01/jurgen-klopp-urges-premier-league-to-avoid-covid-19-circuit-breaker-shutdown

      Some of his comments from the article:

      Jürgen Klopp believes the Premier League should avoid implementing a “circuit-breaker” shutdown designed to control the rising number of Covid-19 cases at clubs if at all possible.

      “I think the competition can go on,” said Liverpool’s manager, presumably mindful of the severe fixture congestion which would be an inevitable consequence of such a suspension. “And it’s also important it goes on. People want to watch it and, in this case, we are not part of society.

      “We go to the training ground and stuff like that but usually we isolate. We try to do everything to keep the boys as safe as possible so I think we really can carry on. We all try to do our best to keep the competition going. I think it works well for everybody but I’m not a [medical] specialist and I will respect all the decisions made in the next few weeks.”

      The realist in Klopp always expected an increase in coronavirus within clubs at this time of year. “We knew before the winter there would probably be a second wave,” he said. “It’s a challenge when it is about self-isolation so I am not surprised that the numbers have gone up slightly in football.”

      We shouldn’t deal in rumors, as punchable as he is, there should be proof before anyone indicts him of anything.

      No the one pre Christmas was during the original lockdown, when him and two brasses had a private party at his house. This is supposed to be a do laid on by him and attended by other Prem players.

      Do we think the new national lockdown that’s likely coming in from midnight could affect the football?

      Anybody else getting the feeling that it won't be long now before football is stopped for a few months?

      1.5k deaths a day and that number will only keep rising.

      More and more squads reporting higher levels of cases with games being called off or severely compromise. That game yesterday was just about Villa fulfilling a fixture rather than holding any particular sporting merit.

       Spurs have had 3 games postponed now due to their opponenets having a covid outbreak.

      It all seems like the beginning of many more bumps in the road over the next few months if we continue to play.

      Seems to me a case of enjoy the games while you can because it looks inevitable a break is coming.

      It could happen mate. To be honest the new 'lockdown' will struggle to have the impact they think it will due to the amount of people now seen as 'keyworkers'.

      If cases keep at this level the football will come under pressure to stop for a while even if it is more for how it looks than actually helping stop any spread.

      Yep I work in asda and we all got letters saying if we have children we send them to school because we are critical workers. That included colleagues working on George and in the Cafe for takeaways. That is not critical and just supermarkets being allowed to take the pass IMO.

      My mum has a class of 16 down from a class of 24. So 2/3s of her class' parents are seen as critical.

      Cant be right.

      I work on the bakery so bread is fair enough and im happy I can keep working full pay and full hours. Most of my job is sweet stuff like donuts, cookies, they're pushing hot cross buns in their sh*t load already.

      In my opinion the landscape across the country should be essential stuff with a few little home comforts. Our place just carrying on like nothing is happening, catering to the casual basket shopper.

      Anyway back to the football haha ⚽️

      Surprised it hasn’t been stopped already l but I’m wondering if this is looked at as something that is essential to the economy and also people’s mental well being so they are trying their best to keep it going?

      I mean if you look at it just by case numbers it’s odd that the season was halted before when numbers where much lower than they are now. It’s weird how perspectives have changed.

      Think they should look at pausing the season for a couple of weeks to a month. Looking at it solely from a sporting point of view I'd say it's only fair given the amount of outbreaks teams are having and will continue to have whilst the numbers are as high as they are.

      Also think that if the campaign is extended until maybe June / July like it was last year then we could be able to see (touch wood) a decent number of spectators returning to catch the business end of the season, as it would buy some extra time for more people to get vaccinated. No matter what anybody says about recent results we're still right in this title race and I'm still confident of us retaining it, so the more people that are able to potentially witness us doing so the better.

      Was gutted when football was first paused in March last year, but I wouldn't miss the current version of "football" too much. Given the outbreaks, empty stadiums, insecurity and match postponements.

      If the international Euros wasn’t on in the summer I would agree with you. But they won’t cancel that.

      So mothers working in Sainsburys become essential workers. The husbands/boyfriends who have lived on benefits all their working life, are getting part time jobs in B&M or Wilko's and similar places, just so they don't have to look after their own bloody kids.They become essential, and the kids go to school!

      Possibly mate but I wouldn't put it past them postponing it until 2023 (or even maybe summer 2022 with the world cup being played in the winter). I think with the money involved in club football, the international side of the game will always have to play second fiddle

      Sensible thing would be to postpone or cancel the Euros and have a four week break now but no way that UEFA or the major European leagues would all come together to agree on something logical like that.
