EFL covering themselves in glory again


Recommended Posts

Just heard that Orient have been expelled from the Carabao Cup for failing to fulfil their fixture against Tottenham because a good number of their players tested positive for COVID 19.

 

Professional football doesn’t do its reputation any good sometimes - this seems to me to be one of those occasions.

 

EFL morons rule OK !

You think Spurs are going to wait to play an EFL Cup fixture with the season congestion we are already experiencing?

If boot was on other foot and game hadn't taken place because some Tottenham players had tested positive do you reckon they would have kicked Tottenham out and given Orient a bye? 🙄

Would depend whether they had enough players to fulfill the fixture.

If it involved different clubs then would this reaction be the same? Say Preston couldn’t put out a team against Brighton.

It's far from ideal.

 

I can see it from both sides.

 

EFL may have to rethink protocol if this becomes a semi regular issue. Given the steep rise in cases, you would think so.

Funny thing is I cant imagine any other EFL club agreeing to testing again after this.

Absolute farce.

Well, they can't keep voiding games if teams have to miss a game due to COVID infections. 

 

Would be absolute farcical...but then this is the EFL so who knows lol.

Yet if they don’t test and it gets out of hand, the Government night step in and cancel football again.  Clubs don’t want that.
