Shrewsbury manager in intensive care with Covid. It's surprised me that it's taken this long for someone in English football's inner circle to become seriously ill - not everyone involved in the game is a super-fit twenty-something.

The Premier League and EFL seem intent on persisting with this season, but you have to wonder if more cases of serious illness (or worse) might force them into a change in tact.

Season should be scrapped. It's rubbish without fans anyway.

Incredibly worrying.

Hope Cotterill makes a full recovery.  

Trying to say this without sounding insensitive, but if he was a Premier League manager/player it would be front page news with every pundit going calling for the curtailing of the season.  I think at the lower levels is when it surely becomes even more difficult to maintain social distance just because of the size of facilities.  I mean, anyone who has been in the dressing rooms at Blundell Park will know that it's virtually impossible with only a handful of people in there.

Couldn't agree with you more. Small club (with a big heart) like Grimsby get penalised for covid yet prem stars can do what they like. Stop the season, null and void, get us all vaccinated and start afresh in August, crowds in and start a proper season.


You can please some of the forumites some of the time but not all the forumites all of the time

Wrong reply in my eyes...without getting political, this virus is a b@stard, I know several, youngish healthy individuals shove had it now. Not killed them but they have told me it kicks the cr@p out of you for weeks and the brain fog is horrendous.
Now, if you are prepared to expose young, healthy, fit footballer's, their families, elders to that risk then that's your opinion, mine is there comes a point when it's not practicable to carry on the season, that point has been reached, imo..

Mikel Arteta tested positive in March last year and football was cancelled. I assume the same thing will happen again now things have been slightly worse for one of his fellow members of the LMA.

Scaremongering? I'm reporting that the manager of another club has become seriously ill thanks to a novel virus that's doing the rounds, and suggesting that similar instances might have ramifications for this season.

Where's the point in pretending that Covid isn't something to be frightened of? Whether you're old and medically vulnerable or young and economically vulnerable, it's scary stuff for all of us whether you like it or not. Sorry for not sugar coating it for you.
