Please don't let Ryan Sparks, Radio Leeds, Stevenage and The Bradford Telegraph and Argus come out smelling of roses here.


Do we really give a excrement?



Well I did try to tell you all Holloway was a mistake

Has Holloway (finally) lost his voice or is he just staying well out of all this? Very strange for him to keep his mouth shut

Yes. If we have messed up at the training ground, then some redress may be due and it blows the conspiracy theorist's case.

If, however, we have tried to use one positive test to gain an advantage by postponing fixtures then we deserve all we get.

Sadly Croxton I’d imagine, given our track record is probably a bit of both.

The concern is, we were seemingly already playing catch up and will be now for a while.

Whilst we all know Ipswin’s view of Holloway, it is interesting, normally he’d be out talking and saying something, whether nonsense or not but he’s oddly quiet...

I assume Ollie is self isolating so can’t have contact with the press?

Mane from Liverpool has been tested positive, but they are still playing Villa tomorrow, along with other players from other clubs that are still playing, so what gives?, rules for one,and rules for others. EFL totally got this wrong. This season should never have started, its bringing demise to lower clubs, nonsense results, its senseless playing games in empty stadiums. Premier Clubs wont assist the lower divisions because theres nothing in it for them. The country needs either a full lockdown to rid the virus, or just say sod it and carry on as normal.

Many PL players have tested positive & the protocol is to self isolate but this doesn't extend to the whole club.
The PL are testing all staff & players regularly unlike the lower leagues.
So there are always going to be different rules between the PL & the EFL.
Can you explain why the EFL have the policy 'totally wrong" when there is only one game postponed across the three divisions today?
Both your suggested options on the pandemic are non starters as the perceived government policy is local restrictions.

I don’t think the EFL have anything wrong, confusing perhaps but not really wrong. As a club we’ve decided we don’t want to pay for testing as we clearly don’t see it as a necessity...out of interest, assuming we’d have pulled say 2/3000 iFollow subscribers today (I appreciate some have essentially paid up front via packages and STs) would testing and getting the game on cost us more or less?

The PL have set their guidance, the EFL the same. Naturally it is being interpreted differently and as with schools for instance, everyone has an opinion but nobody a entirely wrong.

However, Days public statement about curtailing the season seems rather foolish given only one game is affected because of Covid today...it’s hardly ruining it as so many are saying...

Either way do we care what local Bradford and other local rags and opposition directors etc think of it. It's a matter between us and the EFL and I am concerned that your second option may well be the right one, if not actually gaining an advantage lets just say it suits us nicely
