Thanks Mark quick question do you think that league 1 & 2 players are being tested regularly enough even before the emergence of this new more transmissible variant?

Re: Bits & Bobs

19 weeks to official end of season Stanley have 30 league games and potentially 5 cup games, not a lot of room for many postponement,s.

Personally I do the testing levels are right

We have spent an huge amount of money to do the tests; ASFC pays

We have another mandatory round of testing to do in the New Year.

Apart from EFL /PL handouts we have had minimal income. Whist we have sold season tickets we are all the mercy of fans as every game that goes ahead BCD we are testing their patience.

We are still paying 20% VAT and we are still paying HMRC on time in full

Thanks Mark honest answer, have to agree about BCD testing fans patience, habits are just that they are broken by change, will people all rush back to the cinema, pub, church, rugby the answer will be in the proof of the pudding, one thing that is certain the world will be different after the pandemic than before.

Well you might be trying the patience of some supporters, but I think that there are also plenty of very understanding supporters

Re: Bits & Bobs

It is not surprising that the virus transmits between the players! Watching televised matches at all levels the players are still jumping all over each other, hugging and shaking hands, as are the coaches and other staff at the end of matches. If we did that on the streets and in the shops we would get fined! Whilst football and rugby are rightfully classed as contact sports most of the actual contact really happens in the ‘celebrations’ of scoring goals or points! Much tighter control is needed if teams are to reduce the incidence of cross infection. I haven’t hugged my two daughters or my two grandsons for nine months now! Surely the players can exercise some control and reduce the risks!

With the new rules in the premiership about teams in tier 4 areas testing 2 times a week, they must feel there is a greater threat from this new varient of Covid, surely at lower levels were testing is done periodically due to cost anything they can do to minimise contact would be a good idea..Also reduce the number of people in the stadium to a minimum, Chairmen and guests, managers from other clubs watching players, fans aren't allowed in so the bare minimum to me that's required to stage a game should be the norm.
