This new variant might cause the football authorities to have a total rethink on the whole issue.

It seems a much more significant problem, at least until the vaccine regime kicks in.

The problem with a two week pause is that it's still going to be around, still going to be dangerous and we'll probably be at the peak in terms of the number of infected people in two weeks time.

Pretty much and if they do something they'll have to do what they did last season and have a couple of months break.

How would they make the games up with Euros due in June?
No euros. Or euros in August with delayed starts to next season. Can't be playing games with 10-20 positive tests every few days with the number of close contacts per club

Rather cut this season short than mess about with next season.

They won't can the euros and i suspect we wont be able to fit all of this years games in before the end of May.

Rumours flying around on Twitter that Kyle Walker hosted a private Christmas party for up to 19 players and 11 tested positive, strangely talk that Sancho attended via a private jet

Grain of salt and all that, but would explain Man City’s desire to postpone their game against us without even discussing it with the club first

What contribution could Everton have made to the discussions?

So we're looking at 7 positive tests I think.
Walker, Jesus, Ederson, Torres, Doyle, Garcia and an academy player.

At least 3 staff too.

Probably a good idea for the club to release an explanation about how that happened to put all the twitter gossip to rest. Letting it continue is a bad look IMO.
