Covid, Thiago's constant injury issues or both?

It's not like we weren't well warned about Thiago's injury issues prior to signing him.

Hang on. If we have three covid cases plus injuries why can we not get it called off?

Seen other clubs have games called off and it get stated on tv that they had three covid cases plus injuries.

Yeah, thens the rules but I bet if some of the early postponements were investigated there's no way the teams had that many out

If the rule is anyone who has featured in a PL match by my count we have 24 outfield players who qualify, to have a game postponed we would need to have 12 outfield players out (or not have a GK) to have a game postponed. According to the PL injury table we have 5 players currently injured, Robertson suspended and now 3 guys out with Covid (if they are all outfield players) that takes us to 9. With 3 guys about to go away to the ACN another outbreak with similar numbers and current injury levels, could see us have games postponed later in January...

It wonít as there hasnít been a more consequent outbreak yet. Things might change tomorrow if weíve got 10 or so players out.

Absolute joke. It seems you are either riddled with it or you can continue as normal. Weíre obviously not on the good side of the line but going forward, I think some questions need to be asked about precautions.

I think the rule is fine, essentially treating Covid as any other illness or injury scenario seems sound, but there needs to be transparency and oversight by the FA/PL to avoid shenanigans.

I think that for transparency it should be clear which players for each club fall into the eligibility category and which players are unavailable so that we know that everyone is being treated equally. We don't know what is causing games to be postponed for certain clubs.

For example I suspect that some clubs could be taking advantage of the 'played in the PL' part of the rule. They might have players that were happily registered in their 25 man squad as senior players, but as they haven't played in the league can more easily help them get games postponed. I could be wrong, but...

Also out of curiosity what are the EFL rules, thinking back to our EFL Cup game within a day of the World club Cup a couple of years ago, would these rules stop something similar happening again?

I think the consideration for non Covid related injury is open to abuse. Eg Player ‘feels something’ in his hamstring in training so is out injured for a massage or two.

Yeah, maybe a little extreme but 5 dropped in the last 2 games isn't putting pressure on City. Chelsea away next and then we lose Mo. It's not looking good.

It's about a teams ability to field a team. Even Klopp said himself we are nowhere near not being able to field a team. It's something like 13 available players.

This 13 available players thing was only agreed at the recent PL meeting, so anything prior to that was governed in a more 'random' way.

At the moment we have 13 players available...more really, so no reason to not play the game.

Why not 14 or 16 players to represent 3 subs and 2 unused subs? 13 sounds ridiculously low

It's 13 senior outfield players and a GK, I could be wrong but I would guess it is because that gives you 14 players in total which is the max you could field in a game anyway (starting 11 and 3 subs). I suspect if you went much further than that it would start impacting fixtures in non Covid times, and some clubs would want games postponed if they had to have more than a couple of kids on the bench in which case seasons would never get finished.

Aye, this season's winners should have an asterisk, and 'Covid Affected' by it
