The wording of the EFL response definitely suggests it was Grimsby Town that have stated they cant fulfill the fixtures as oppose the EFL telling them they must not play.

This stinks of a blameless culture from the EFL , giving Grimsby no real option to play but stopping short of telling them to postpone.

What happens if in 16 days someone else tests positive after attending training, another 14 days or self isolating for everyone?

Clubs are going to be tempted to encourage players with symptoms not to get tested just stay at home until they have gone. Seems like being honest and trying to do the right thing is being penalised. Doesn't help when sanctimonious officials from Bradford mouth off on the airways when the clubs should be sticking altogether.

The wording suggests to me that they agree we have followed their and government guidance regards the ultimate decision we have taken so nothing further to worry about there.......but.....the wording also looks like we maybe didnt follow EFL protocols in the way we called off the Cheltenham game which i presume is what will be the focus of the investigation.

BBC 'West Yorkshire Sport Daily'  talking about Bradford possibly playing Cheltenham instead as their match v Leyton Orient is off.

About 53 mins in.

I hope they have discussed this with Cheltenham. Outrageous that Cheltenham might hear this first on West Yorkshire Sport Daily

Are these protocols rules or just advice?

Quite possibly but I read it as they have to do an investigation whenever a game is called off. The fact they’ve said we’ve followed their protocol means it’s an open and shut case IMHO

Seems strange that we would be treated differently from other clubs and under investigation.  

Does anyone think we might not have followed the Covid guidance properly?

Might explain the drastic measures.

The Walsall v Orient statement said the exact same thing at the weekend, it's just a copy and paste job. I think people are reading more into the investigation part than necessary.
