    That’s their call but it’s not an excuse IMO for them to not field a team vs us... obviously that’s just my opinion

    I look at it and say in material terms if they can meet there obligation for the game today despite being full of COVID, they can full-fill their obligation on Wednesday surely. The fact they may have wanted to rest player so just squad management which applies to all teams

    I think Emirates Marketing Project were missing 5 first team players when they got their last PL game cancelled

    Im not sure Smith will be bothered

    the acceptable way to tank the cup this season.

    If I’m wrong - they can play the cup with the squad, they can play us in the league

    depend how the Fa treat them
    To me if you can field a team for the cup you can play in the league as the cup comes first

    Thats true...though those who have tested positive should be isolating and unable to train with the squad (apart from personal fitness). So even if they test negative on Tues, are they match fit?

    Who cares
    That’s their issue as a multi million ££ club and squad
    By not playing tonight their players will arguably be fresher than most

    Most sensible thing I’ve heard is Villa call off our game now and we play Fulham on Wednesday

    I was thinking about that when I saw this on Tuesday.

    I don't care, I'm pointing out that players should not be in a position to just come straight back into the team after 10 days isolation. So we shouldnt be up against a full strength team.

    That is far too sensible for it to actually happen

    I'll be amazed if we reach the end of January and football hasn't been stopped similar to in the first lockdown

    Isn't it at least 15 minutes close proximity required for the risk of transmission to be high?

    But we should have a game regardless

    Fulham play Friday so no chance the Premier League put that game on for Wednesday. Wouldn’t be fair for Fulham to play two games in two days, would it? We all know it’s only us that has to do that this year.
