    absolute farce. Anyone watching FNF?

    Jamie and Gary said this isn't specifcially on Arsenal, they're just the latest to use the rule but it's got to stop and the game MUST go ahead. Not saying their words carry loads, but it's something.

    Also, Gary said specifically that Arsenal have loaned out players and got a red card, that's not COVID. Jamie added that Munich played a 16 year old other day.

    Strong words from both the game should go ahead. But sexy is a way of life, can just see it being cancelled, no doubt we lose the replay date and miss out on CL by 1 pt.

    They were pretty much spot on, I don’t think they went fair enough, it’s even worse in the FL

    They need to remove the Covid postponement rules next year completely.

    we should not be postponing games unless the gov have shut the training ground and sent everyone home

    Add Holding to that, they can play 6-3-1. I don't really give a fudge as long as they get a team on the pitch. I bet that if the PL order them to play, then Saka and Ødegaard will make miraculous recoveries!

    I stand to loose a flight and hotel booking (pre-paid, so no refund). Bastards!

    Never realised they were no longer N5.

    Of course they have also had a couple of SE postcodes in their time.

    clams.

    I don't know the facts any more than any of you.

    But if it is in fact 1 player missing because of Corona and that pushes them over the limit for available players having just loaned out two players... That gets the game postponed? fudging ridiculous.

    If those are the rules though...

    Quotes from Matthew Upson tonight, a former Arsenal player pundit, doubting that they should be able to cancel the game on the basis of one covid absentee. Ditto from Poyet

    With the above comments on Sky tonight from Redknapp and Red Gary, there has to be a good chance that the PL realise the precedent they'd be creating here (cancelling a game due to 1 covid case) and being played for fools

    Since when was it considered so bad/impossible to play youth players? I’m sure Leeds have put out a few depleted teams this season.

    Also when we were playing 3 matches a week under Mourinho it was considered tough luck if you didn’t like the schedule. Will be fuming if this is cancelled.

    Raises another point though; it’s literally during a transfer window so make some emergency loans if you need to.

    (No doubt Doherty would have a blinder for them though lol)

    true, and its arsenal, they are always banging on about Wenger and the team of kids he beat us with, even when our average age was lower

    "Arsenal back home"? In that case they should bribe their way back to SE18.

    Well we know he’s an Arsenal fan. His performances have reinforced what we already knew…

    Very Very Dangerous Precedent being set here if the PL allow this to be cancelled, if it is even 2 or 3 players only with COVID let alone the reported single case
