Looks like we have plenty of problems coming up with a mass of players out with Covid symptoms and injuries

Cannot afford to loose next two games .

Only can manage 3 subs today.

If we had another 3-4 players out would we get these postponed

By the time we play our next league game the isolation period will be up.

I think/hope this is only an FA Cup requirement to use academy players if available to fill out the squad. They really don't want these games abandoned as it would really mess up the schedule for everyone else.

 

League games should still be our right to call off if we don't feel like we can field enough players, but I recall something about not being allowed to abandon 3 games in a row without risk of points deductions.

Also 4 subs.

Teams managed perfectly well with one sub for decades.

I'm not sure how much longer the football season can reasonably continue.

 

As soon as we are mathematically safe if they stop the league, they should stop the league. It’s the fairest way for everyone.

Teams managed without subs at all, even substitute goalkeepers were unavailable. If a Keeper got injured to such an extent that he was carried off, an outfield player took the jersey.

Was looking at the conference table earlier. Dover, who are bottom have only played 10 games all season, and have another 34 to play in the next three months.

If this season is abandoned will we be deducted six points again next season ?

Doubt it.

Heard that we did take more players but some fell ill and we're sent home
