      Said it in another thread and on twiiterland, FA should have shut down for a winter break same as the SFA.

      Its just stupid the amount of games being called off, and even when games are on, the squads are threadbare so the standard is not as good.

      Hopefully Boris will announce this evening that the pointless isolation periods are scrapped so these lads isolating with a cold will be able to play.

      Would hate to see us forfeit the games.

      There is a sort of winter break in a couple of weeks but the Prem know that if they cancelled during the Xmas period it would cost them ( and also Amazon and BT ) fortunes

      I read where last week's games had fewer positive test, thought things were looking up.

      Might be a blessing if the game gets postponed and we play in a week or so. Would have more guys available.

      Good one. Let me have a go - we should have anticipated this situation and should have bought more cover, which with FSG, we couldn’t afford and we didn’t.

      It would be nice if we just played Anfields ties as a winner take all.

      Can't imagine the Gooners share my sentiment ;D.

      If our goalies are out Arsenal should have to match up with the next best available or just default to outfield players in goal. At least that would be fair and entertaining. Who is our best outfield player in goal?

      doesn't say what extra players have gone down with it.

      Presume must be more than Kelleher and the ones we knew about already.

      An see this one going ahead and Jürgen losing his sh*t.

      Can see it going ahead just because the EFL want the games done and dusted and the money in the bank.

      They seem to go for the shittest tinpot sponsors they can get hold of so doubt they will be arsed about the already dire reputation of the cup.

      They can't make us go ahead with it when the PL have let multiple teams postpone games.

      If they force us to play it we should just not turn up.
      But at least we seem to be taking the competition seriously enough to want to play it near full strength.

      I can imagine the Shrewsbury game klopp would be happy to play the kids anyway.

      It will be like this until spring I reckon. And as covid isn’t going away the football chiefs should look at possibly making seasons run from March until November so miss out the colder months.

      Wouldn't be surprised if we're forced to play this with the U18s after that farcical situation a couple years back of having to play the kids at Villa when the squad was in Qatar for the Club World Cup.
