Covid-19 Club Statement

Recommended Posts

If we have enough fit players this game should go ahead.
No way should it be cancelled.
Changed days from when we all lauded Tom Hendrie for getting a game postponed when we were weakened by a bug. What's changed ? If I was JG and thought this reduced our chances of winning I would 100% be trying for a postponement.

Nothing has changed from my perspective.

I have always wanted games to be played unless we can't field a team.

This is why we have squads. Illness happens.

It's a fully different scenario.

The postponement due to a bug levelled the entire squad with sickness and diarrhoea, we literally couldn't have put a side together.

2 players coming down with an illness is no different to 2 player being injured. The game has to go ahead, postponing every time someone catches covid means we'll be left with no season whatsoever as every club in the country is going to be affected at some point.

I wonder who is right about the lack of symptoms. Does anyone believe Pseudonym?

Let me get this straight, to prove that Alnwick has symptoms you provide a quote that doesn’t mention symptoms! 😂

I understand that Alnwick’s alleged positive test was picked up by routine testing and he was then told to self isolate. 

But surely if he had symptoms then he’d already have been self isolating?

I really couldn’t care less who believes what I say!

Indeed it’s a different scenario. Back in 99/00 the players in question WERE actually ill. 
 

The players today aren’t ill.

Interesting to note that more people died in the flu epidemic of 99/00 than have died in 2019/20 - despite there being a flu vaccine. 
 

Yet not only did we not lockdown, shut the NHS, remove people’s liberties and wreck the economy, no-one even remembers it!

We don’t even know if these players are ill! 
 

If we started testing for fragments of every virus that exists regardless of actual illness then we’d probably have to reduce football to 5 a sides. 

The whole thing is ludicrous.

Was it him, I've had him on ignore for ages just saw it mentioned in a quoted post. Yeah totally made up then.
It's okay for you, you won't see it, but you've set him off again. I feel like quoting all of those posts so you see them just to get my own back...

It's the double standards if we are made to play that gets to me. One rule for the likes of Celtic another for us. We will be far more affected playing with 2 players at least unavailable plus we are lead to believe this despite following all protocols. The green cheeks had a player break protocols, didn't even test positive yet didn't play. Nothing else about this concerns me. The fact we will be playing while weakened does. If that doesn't bother you fair enough just seems a tad unfair and smacks of the usual double standards. Not sure what angle you are looking at it from ? To my eyes it increases our chances of losing a game.

 

See below.

You mention Celtic umpteen times, are you suffering from amnesia or doesn't it suit to mention Aberdeen? :lol:

Was it not more of a punishment for those two because their players didn’t follow the rules - as long as our players have stuck to guidelines we may have to go ahead.

Are you suggesting that JG said he was recovering from no symptoms? 🤣

Whats the punishment? There no fans anyway

 

Maybe ‘punishment’ was wrong wording - what I was getting at was the postponement of those two games were meant as a “yellow card” from the government because they breached the rules but this time guidance was followed and so the game would only be postponed if football authorities think there is a risk

Yes. The stupidity of such responses was kinda my original point. Doh! :1eye

Zlamal is the keeper in question. Thanks Jambos :)

He was one of the few that crossed my mind , Hearts will be looking to get him games when he'll be mostly on their bench this season !
