Well Day is clear in his view that he has sought and followed EFL guidance all the way regards the decision to isolate / postpone..........why does that still make me nervous ?  

Intersting to hear that he is also quite adamant that League's 1 & 2 shouldnt have started without crowds and that he cannot see it being completed. Weekly testing would help manage the control, spread and isolation avoid postponements but at £5k a week clubs cant afford that without crowds.

My view is that any EFL/Premier League bail out package should now be negotiated to include testing costs for each club to be included as well as the loss of income to allow the season to either be completed behind closed doors with players fully tested or .....just scrap it completely which i cant see happening given the relegation and promtion issues up and down the leagues and what happens to contracts of the players ??

Proper fck up all over.

Seeing that Boris now wears our kit surely it's worth a try to get him to be a shareholder and use his influence to get a grant towards a new stadium. " We are the only team to follow your advice Boris "

Have listened to PD on Humberside just now, and he said EFL gave conflicting information, first saying 10 days isolation needed (so we could’ve played next Saturday and only missed one game), but then they changed to 14 days.  We are looking to seek clarification on Monday.

Also interesting this Hull v West Ham spat

I may have got this wrong, but I believe West Ham offered to pay for testing of Hull players but Grant McCann refused saying they all felt healthy (idiotic stance if true in my opinion)

Apparently Karen Brady now getting involved in the media, questioning why they didn’t take up the offer.

Were they worried about what testing might show?

Not be surprised at all that any information/ guidance from he EFL would be confusing, contradictory or just basically wrong, I don’t think they know what there doing, especially for cup games when a premiership club or Sky are involved.

That'd be an interesting spat if Karren Brady & Ehab Allam had a set to...... can't abide either of them so hope they'd both lose out on points!

“We are aware of a number of questions from fans regarding the confusion arising from the decision for the Bradford v Stevenage game today to go ahead despite three Stevenage players testing positive for Covid compared to the decision to postpone our game at Cheltenham today because of one positive test.

As stated yesterday, the decision to postpone is at the club's discretion and given the medical advice received, we remain satisfied that we made the correct decision.

It would not be appropriate for us to comment on the Stevenage decision, they know the background and circumstances involved and have also had medical advice.


On Monday, we will be seeking clarification on the key differences and we will update fans accordingly.“


So as expected, the ball was actually in our court and yet again we’ve managed to make a pigs ear of it.

Or the others have made a pigs ear of it allowing their games to go ahead? Two ways of looking at it, but what's clear is that the EFL have no clear guidelines, and have basically said " you decide".

Seems we have put the health of the players and their families first and foremost. Will wait and see what transpires on Monday...

As already mentioned, we’ve just blindly followed the advice without seemingly using our own heads at all. Exactly as what happened with Vernam.

The EFL are absolutely useless, so why do we keep taking their advice (and that’s all it is, advice) as gospel? Makes us just as useless as they are IMO
