"A large number of first team players and staff returned positive tests after being routinely tested on Monday and immediately went into isolation"

What's a large number in this context?

Iíve not thought of opposing elite sport continuing at all, but there gets to a point where there is a duty of care to staff / presumable liability/accountability for employers. Interesting how different it feels when itís my club.

If we can cobble together 14 players, wonít this go ahead?
Arenít FA cup rules different to the league.

I'd like to think none of our players and staff broke the rules over Christmas but it's fanciful, particularly where the players are concerned so this is not really a surprise and with a more transmissible variant it only takes a couple of boneheads to bollocks the whole thing up.

FA Cup will be carnage, mixing players and staff from different locations and leagues....postponed games will have to be rearranged and there is little room in the calendar for Prem clubs...

This thing is so easily spread now, Itís probably not appropriate to give negative labels those who get it.

FA cup really shouldn't be going ahead this season given all the lower league clubs haven't had covid tests through the season.

Ultimately thought I remember the outcry when Newcastle cancelled our game with a few on here and elsewhere saying they should've sent the under 16s along.

We're in the same situation now and doubt we'll get permission to postpone this although it should be like that game was.

Actually just seen Southampton-Shrewsbury got postponed a few hours back so games can be called off and played at a later date although could well have to be a Monday after weekend fixtures if there's a spare midweek sometime in February.

Or just play this game on 4th round weekend. Not ideal but could just about be squeezed in.

Arenít FA cup rules different to the league.

The 14 players was the original rule for the Premier League, but there have been numerous games now what that hasn't been enforced. I don't know what the FA rules are but I'd be amazed if the game goes ahead.

I think in the FA Cup the tie will just be rewarded to the club that could field a team.
