Derby are sending a mix of youth  and under 23 players to their game. Admittedly against Chorley so evens it up a bit.

If we can cobble together 14 players, won’t this go ahead?
Aren’t 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.
See Derby tomorrow.

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.
Until later, or until its fate is decided?
From the beeb, "The Football Association's professional game board will decide what will happen with the fixture "early next week"."

I can't see Liverpool having much room in their calendar to allow the game to be re-arranged.

I think the wait will go on another year! We had a really good chance this year, the team is so set up for a good run IF the first team is played.

In relation to that Southampton-Shrewsbury game they've said it has to be played before the 4th Round, which starts on the 23rd of January. If that applies to our tie too, which it presumably does, In the meantime there are the following fixtures involving the two clubs:

13/01 AVFC v Spurs
16/01 AVFC v Everton
17/01 LFC v Man U
20/01 Man City v AVFC
21/01 LFC v Burnley

Blimey - fingers crossed everyone is ok.

This suggests they need to think about how they’re going to get a better handle on this. They either need to stop or get tighter controls in place.

First and foremost fingers crossed everyone comes through it ok. But god knows what long COVID might do.

This could be an outbreak amongst the youth teams and they don't want the first team catching it?

Edit: Just saw the official statement does reference first teamers.

Only a matter of time before the season is postponed imo, this is only going to get worse over the next few weeks. I can see the Euros being kicked cancelled too.
