This season in danger of being a farce, though.

This is where it would be really helpful if the JRG had published the COVID protocols so we could know what to expect.

Presumably it's written in there how they'll deal with this.

Just play a St Mirren D side. 

If anything like the Czech side you will get top 6 no problemo. 

To add I always liked Erwin at Motherwell. Felt he left too soon to go to Leeds but can understand why he did. Hope he is successful but not against us of course.

Doubt if the game will be called off unless a whole lot more players test positive.

I may be wrong but believe that fewer subs are now permitted on the bench for a game to go ahead. Only if we don't have a first 11 and something like 2 or 3 on the bench can we call off a game.

Club statement out saying 2nd Saints player confirmed with CV-19.  FUXSAKEMAN...!

Well at least they can't catch it twice. We should have all the players mingle, so they all get infected and get it over with IMHO.

I would think next two games will be off now.

They should be.

Couldn't we just claim that a number of our players have brazenly flouted social distancing rules, like Aberdeen and Celtic did, and have our game postponed?

There are genuinely Hearts fans on Twitter gloating that we have two players testing positive for this horrible disease. I despair at these people who are clearly the absolute dregs of society.

Hahaha! That's funny because to be that bitter they must have been apoplectic when Hearts got relegated. Hopefully the players are asymptomatic, too.

I thought you , of all people , would know who it was , maybe you've even seen him playing. Anyway , over 400 appearances in all competitions in England !

Sounds like a pretty senior player and not some junior lad.

If two players get injured in training do you postpone games?

They'll be two batches of testing done on others (presumably testing after your GK got it has now caught another).

The season isn't long enough to be postponing games when a small number of players are put.

Agree with pretty much all of that. If we keep calling off games when one or two players test positive then we'll never get the season finished. If it's just a couple, and the rest of the squad hasn't been in close contact with them, then we just have to crack on. It would be interesting to know if there is a number that need to be positive before a game is called off - still amazed the Czechs had to play on Monday.

That being said, it's a bit unfair if we have to play Celtic without players who have tested positive given the only reason we're playing them on Wednesday is because one of their players was an irresponsible, selfish p***k and fucked off to Spain.

I thought the reason that games are likely to be called off when cases occur is that the squad is supposed to be a bubble. The players that have tested positive have been in close contact with the rest of the squad who are then going to be in contact with opponents if matches are played. It's not really similar to having a few injuries.

Wild guess at Danny Fox? Ex-Coventry & out the picture at Wigan. He's more a full back than a wing back though IIRC. 

ETA: Junior Brown?

Sorry, I do actually agree with that but it was late (for me) and I didn't type my post/thoughts out in full. I was kinda getting at the fact that some clubs had games postponed as 'punishment' when they were also missing players, but yes, I didn't actually write that. Kinda what @Stu has elaborated on.

But yeah, we can't keep postponing games.

That'd fit the clues I've heard. JB initials, five letters in surname...

Staggering, btw, how many players we seem to get who are in some way linked with Fleetwood. They're a team that has barely ever registered with me in the past but I feel like they get mentioned all the time now.

Also, three people at the club called Junior... is this a record?
