To say Newcastle should forfeit the points, be forced to play, or infer that they are to blame for this outbreak in their camp with not the slightest shred of evidence of neglect on their part is unfair and shows us in a bad light.

To argue over altering the timeframe of when three premier league points are allocated because of an event which has already claimed over one million lives is distasteful. 

Get well soon Newcastle.

Seconded.

So we've got an 11 day break now. I hate breaks after defeats.

Especially when the next game is against Wolves. There's something particularly depressing about playing them.

The Toon fans are funny. A Geordie friend of mine messaged me to say that game should definitely go ahead if training ground is closed as it reduces the chances of Bruce  knocking even more footballing ability out of their squad.

Sounds more like a statement of fact than an attempt at humour!

They've got Jimenez out injured. We may have Barkley back. Don't go gung-ho against them, go with the mindset of staying compact and an away point is a good result, they thrive on breakaways. Make them push the pace.

Hopefully a game rearranged for late on in the season so as many of us on here as possible get to go.

I always think of it as a decent away ground, probably helps I've seen live three different teams win there in last decade!

Much rather have more Molineux type grounds around within walking distance from the centre than god forsaken dumps like Reading miles out of town and soulless.

No great shock that ours is the club that have had the first proper 'outbreak'. Especially given the state of our training and medical facilities.

But maybe a break will let Bruce have enough time to 'dust ourselves down', 'roll up our sleeves', continue his 18 month long 'work in progress' and all the other bullshit excuses we've been hearing. Honestly, what a chancer this clown is.

Has there ever been a manager so disliked by so many clubs' sets of fans?
