Quoted from pontoonlew


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


But the EFL have clearly not given any definitive advice. They have more or less left it to each club and each club has decided on a different outcome.

There is no consistency, or clear rules. To my mind, peoples health comes first and I think the season should have been scrapped altogether until it was safe to start, but that's just me, others will think differently.

Surely if we have followed the EFL advice at least we can't be punished.

its also worth noting that Leyton orient could be fined for breaching covid protocols. Its seems as if we are dammed if we do and dammed if we don't

If we have followed EFL advice then surely we cannot punished. Surely without testing we hdve followed the correct procedure with regards to isolating and chose not to put others at risk.

The EFL are an utter joke organisation and can only see this situation being more chaotic.  

Scrap the season now, two games in no harm, no arguments regarding promotion and relegation.

Not sure why you’ve such a hostile view to the club over this decision. Surely it was a common sense decision. I’d certainly be questioning it more if we had played today. And if we had, and Cheltenham players caught Covid, can you imagine the backlash.

As others have said, this season is already a farce and needs to be cut short.

No to be fair, can’t see as the club have done a lot wrong given the current situation
As with much of the COVID situation, total lack of clarity from governing bodies,

For EFL and football starting, read Government with schools and Uni’s going back, no consistent guidance in place for what to do when the obvious likely outcome happens

Like the rest of the country, football and GTFC have to get on with the season. It was never going to be perfect, but with a financial package on the way, we're going to have to make the best of it. There's no assurance Covid is going to go away anytime in the near future and there could be bigger dangers for clubs going into extended hibernation, especially Leagues One, Two and below.

I'm a bit ashamed to read that most of our fanbase on here want the season ending. Just as bad as one or two Premier League clubs trying to cancel relegation in the summer, and most probably influenced by a poor transfer window, ins and outs, and an horrific start to the season. Opinions wouldn't be the same if we'd kept the best players out of last season's squad and we'd have beaten Walsall away and smashed Salford at home 4-0. The pedantic attitude of the club has rubbed off on the fans and GTFC as a whole has become as meek as mice..

Stop wittering, take blows on the chin, make the best of circumstances like others have and get on with it FFS. Excuse after excuse, self pity ad nauseum..

It maybe that we actually help on having some clear guidance or additional assistance given ,  

looking inwardly it looks like we have maybe done the bare minimum to avoid playing when we have had a sh1t start, full of injuries, suspension and bemoaning fitness....
looking outwardly we have followed the EFL guidance...

With so many various decisions by individual clubs/ chairman already surely the EFL will have to now issue a rigid guidance so all clubs know where they stand and what to do.

You can bet your bottom dollar that GTFC have met the minimum requirements re Covid, ie the cheapest. And as yet we have only seen or heard the club's interpretation of the EFL's guidance.. just like the Vernam situation. I have the same low level of trust in GTFC as I have for the EFL, which is a crying shame having committed my allegiance for a lifetime..

We probably have....but if we have met the minimum requirements then we are still compliant, understandable from a business position especially from a man/board who has no money or desire to finance the club themselves.
If it comes to light that we have not followed guidance and are penalised in anyway then we know who to hold accountable.
