What a shambles that EFL clubs dont need to be tested at the same rate as PL clubs yet play against them in cup competitions.

An Orient player who doesn't know he has COVID, passes it onto a Spurs player who passes it on to other teammates and we end up forfeiting Europa League games and put our PL chances at risk. Surely there's got to be the same approach across the divisions at least for clubs still in the League Cup. Becomes even trickier once FA Cup ties start with non EFL clubs.

Also a forfeit and Spurs winning the league cup would definitely be an * what a way to break a drought that would be. Any tips in advance pool fans? ;)

Yeah I know but why is it not the EFL organising it?

Here's one for the tin foil hat brigade. Harry Kane sponsors Orient. Spurs pay for Orients COVID tests. Orient forfeit to Spurs.

Complete tongue in cheek just stole it from a group message, the gate receipts and another fitting tribute to former spurs man & orient manager Justin Edinburgh worth far more than anything

Reportedly due to our congested schedule if they can’t play it will be a forfeit. We have no room for postponement.

and the EFL/FA/PL will be loathed to create a precedent.
