Seems like we’re scared to play now , we’ve bought half our squad in the week before the season kicked off and have looked terrible in the games we’ve played .


Off the pace yes, terrible far from it...

Sounds like a risky strategy this - call your own games off then dare the EFL to take action against you.

Might work out, and the players have got a fortnight off to come back from injury, but it’s two weeks off the training pitch.

Also might go badly wrong & result in a points deduction.


Two quotes today

"They say many EFL and National League clubs are now preparing to "cease playing... and put their business into administration"."

and

EFL chairman Rick Parry told BBC Radio 5 Live on Saturday that some clubs "are on the brink".

At this rate we might get promoted with a minus points total!!!!!!!!

Bradford fans accusing us of all sorts of shenanigans on Bantam Talk.

Surely this decision has to come from the EFL, or with EFL blessing. We can't just postpone 3 games because we want to.

Probably fuelled by their communications director giving it the big one in the media.

Some of these comments are laughable, and also tedious.

Why would we pull out of games because we haven't got fit players?  We've already played games with that in mind? We had 3 back at least last weekend, with a new signing in the squad. Where would players continue to get match time? It certainly ain't at home.

I think their director of communications person should stop being a moron, we're following guidelines and he and his club has failed to force/bully us into playing. There's a lack of leadership being shown yet again by the EFL, but that's no surprise now. I can't even see why they're investigating and on the talk from some of us losing points - why? If it happened we should take legal action.

So predictable that this scenario doesn't have a clear solution.  

I don't really see why we would exploit the situation because of injury problems.  We had three players back for the Stevenage game and our main issue is match preparedness which will be exacerbated by two weeks at home.

Either way, I hope we've got our bases covered.

Just been reported that there were 10 positive covid tests in the prem from 20th to 27th Sept. Affected people to self isolate for 10 days.

Seems to be different rules every time a case is reported.
