    It shouldn't have no, but with contact training coming soon, it shows how easily someone who is infectious for 3 days could easily be mixing it with plenty of other people. Is it a show stopper? not for me, does it highlight an area needed for improvement to make everyone involved feel safer...

    Ramsdale could have been infected up to 2/3 days before the negative test too so he could have theoretically spent a day or two infecting a number of players/staff. Tests every day is the only thing that makes sense.

    Germany had a much, much better response to the virus than us and Spain are two weeks ahead of us in terms of virus suppression tactics.

    They should have had one for a Pandemic, everyone should have. We were all told, no one wanted to listen.

    Less than 1% is not bad, but it's also higher than the ONS would have predicted. I agree with other last part of the below snippet from the BBC which really just says is too soon to draw any conclusions from the first round of testing. "Last weekend, the Office for National Statistics...

    I think his comment is encouraging people to ask questions which is a good thing. When the people in charge feel as comfortable and confident in relaying the info you have then I think you should judge differently, but there is a reason that the people he asked didn't give him a definative...

    What is the current process for all people training? Are they all quarantined? Is every person involved with Watford football club quarantining? How many people is Troy coming into contact with a day, how many other, different people are those people coming in to contact with a day?

    Absolutely mate! I understand your point, I just don't see how you can have a serious competition whilst testing out how safe the environment is.

    It can and would help. Teams can play friendlies for a month (which is essentially what most of the games left to play are going to be anyway) and learn how things need to be improved. Surely that's even more sensible that starting up a tournament where a ridiculous amount of money is at...

    It's not necessarily about viability. The game is going to change even just with there being no fans there. Training is changing, the rules in-game are going to change, players may be less aggressive etc. I understand why clubs may not feel its fair to have their premier league survival or...

    Sorry mate, not to nitpick, but you did say the steps you proposed were "basic steps that could be fairly easily implemented" Can it be done - sure, anything is possible and I'm sure some new guidelines can be documented that sport can follow. Should it be done is a whole other question and...

    What you're proposing isn't basic at all on the scale in which you are talking about doing it. And despite earning big bucks, I understand why players are hesitant to be isolated further when others are being isolated less and quarantined when others don't have to be to do their jobs. How are...

    SO how have players been testing positive then? Are you more likely to catch something by spending all day around people who have the virus when you think you're completely safe so don't take precautions or bumping into someone for a second in a hardware store?

    Dude, you have to let it go. It doesn't matter how anyone else or what anyone else would have done. We couldn't handle the pressure. No one forced Dembele to eye gauge anyone or us to run around like psychos trying to massacre the Chelsea team.

    Im not sure that I'm missing the point at all. You've even made my point for me :) "C-19 is new so at the moment we are still understanding how best to protect form it" We have stopped the world for a reason. It's a new disease that is quite contagious that has so far, reportedly killed...

    Which still relatively unknown new diseases with the currently estimated infection and mortality rate of Covid-19 are they?

    I agree. Money talks but it will make a complete mockery of the competition. If they want to put on soulless, meaningless games that are essentially friendlies then fair enough, not sure what the point in watching will be as everything that goes with the actual entertainment of the game will...

    IF they start the season again behind closed doors and have no relegation I don't see the point at all. With European football not even a cert for next year for anyone there is literally nothing for anyone to play for except Liverpool. Pointless games in silent stadiums for what reason? There...
