Have a feeling the FA Cup will be scrapped if too many catch up fixtures accumulate for all divisions. There's nowhere else to fit them in and no way to extend the season if the Euros go ahead as expected.
Has the FA even begun to think about bringing in an enforced bubble situation for the football league clubs?

Look at the NBA and how they eventually got last season complete and compare that to their non-bubble season they're trying to run with now.

Festive period has been a bit of a shocker with players hosting parties, orgies etc etc and also socialising in big groups at Christmas time. We're past that now. Players sticking to their families and the training ground like when the league was restarted last season should see a big decline in cases.


I see Mou is reluctant to postpone another match against Villa and he is right in this instance. Can't have 3 fixtures postponed.

Levy is doing the right thing and waving any shipping fees so it will cost just the Marine lads 90 quid per shirt. Discount 30 quid for the gooner who can get the Gedson shirt
I know Covid and all that but this defeats the purpose. Marine players can just go buy a Spurs a shirt and it would be the same. The point of swapping shirts is to have the shirt actually worn by Kane or Son or whoever.

Couldn't they just wash and sterilise the ones used in the match and give them to the players?
Still defeats the purpose, you dont wash the shirt. You want the shirt as is. Frame it, dirt and sweat and all. I dont think pros swap shirts and then go home and wash it. Haha

Ok. In that case, hand them over after locking them away for 14 days. No chance covid lasts that long.

I think I read it was going to be the match worn washed shirts. Not like you can smell them once you frame it. Sure there won't be grass stains but really wouldn't have been that many. Marine thankfully didn't really go in for many tackles

United Liverpool in the cup! Everton to take on the owls, happy with that.. kind of. Arsenal likely to take on Southampton which would be juicy, as will the Bees and Leicester
