How was a player out on loan allowed to mix with the group ? Or am I missing something ? .


Can't be Jock Curran. It states it is a first team player who has tested positive.

Curran is technically in the first team isn’t he?

It says first team squad player, so could be any of them. Curran most likely as we know he's been tested.

Spurs paid for Orient squad to be tested before their cup game. 17 Orient players tested positive.  Spurs have been awarded the tie because Orient can't fulfill the fixture.

If it was 17 Spurs players that tested positive,  I bet you that Orient wouldn't have been awarded the tie!

This is normal. Spalding are part-time so he will train with them once or twice per week and be with us for the rest of the week.

I can see these loan arrangements being knocked on the head because he's technically being exposed to 50 people rather than 25.

Bang on the money, however that scenario is highly unlikely because of the extensive testing program in place for Premier League clubs.

Because of the cost implications, the EFL only requires a test when someone displays symptoms. The flaw in this logic being that physically fit athletes in their late teens to mid-thirties are the most likely to be asymptomatic.

But what about their older colleagues among the coaching staff, and their wider families. It’s not taken long for the EFL’s approach to testing to be shown up for the farce that it is, but as common as EFL farces are, it’s not usually a life and death matter.

It needs sorting now; before the unthinkable happens as a result.

We're probably a few weeks away from a suspension of League 2. Orient had 17 players test positive who presumably weren't displaying any symptoms. Stevenage have decided to test everyone after they had 1 player test positive. What happens if they have a similar amount of positive tests? If we are pressured into getting everyone tested we might be the same?

How long before the EFL have to call a halt?
