No. All the players are regularly tested as part of the bio secure arrangements for BCD matches etc. If he has symptoms then he should be self isolating which would mean no training.

Yes. And if he is covered by those regulations there is no need to be separated from the rest of the squad.

Hmm, if he is quarantining then you can’t leave the house for 14 days

Putting Arsene Wenger in charge of the laws of football at FIFA should have made things better not worse.

Hancock and the Govt opened the pubs! And told us to get back to work. And paid us to eat out. And seemed to forget that returning schools and universities would increase cases. Blaming people is just buck passing

They blew it when they let Cummings flout the law. What authority do they have to now instruct us? Why should I isolate when they won’t let me access a test?

Well they blew that one when their most senior adviser was allowed to flout the laws. Why should we follow if they don’t?

It’s nonsense. He should call out the people who can’t deliver a testing system and have no strategy for balancing the economy with health. Oh, that would be him

It’s counter productive and won’t work. Who will enforce it?! Rather than chasing headlines again they should concentrate on building a testing system that works and managing economy alongside health with a proper strategy.

So why have £10,000 fines if people will behave responsibility anyway. The reason you wouldn’t have a test is you can’t be fined £10,000 if you dont know you’ve got it. It’s stupid. But then that is this Govt. and anyway. I’m not allowed a test

So the incentive is to not have a test. Then you can’t be fined as you don’t know. Surely you see how stupid that is?

No. It’s about this mad idea you are fined if you have COVID. How do you know you have it?!

The spectacle and the spontaneity is spoiled. Happened tonight. Both goals. Can’t celebrate immediately as you have to wait for the VAR check. In stadiums it’s much worse.

Another stupid policy. You can’t know whether you have Covid and need to self isolate unless you have a test. So it will push millions into having a test so don’t break law. - er, capacity. Or it means if you don’t get a test you can’t break law. Easy outcome to that.

Watching the Arsenal game in the Twelve Pins. So much better to follow a game as part of a crowd.

It’s the reinterpretation of how game is played for that bloody VAR. Check offside to nth degree. Stay absolutely on goal line for penalties. Them is the laws. Allow technology in and what do you expect?!

This era of football is out of control. It will be looked at with as much validity as the wartime matches were. They have taken the greatest spectacle on the planet & made it a dreary bureaucratic bore. This is not football. It is the corporate packaging of football. It is crap.

Spontaneity is what makes football. Especially when you are in the ground. Whenever that will be again

Even longer delays with refs walking to tv monitors. It’s still a subjective decision. Delayed retakes on penalties. Don’t say you weren’t warned
