Meanwhile in the FA Cup

Derby County will travel to Chorley for their FA Cup third-round tie without interim manager Wayne Rooney, the rest of the coaching staff and their first-team players, reports Ryan Conway. The Telegraph revealed on Wednesday that the manager and his players will be unable to take part. As first reported by The Athletic, the club will now be forced to field a combination of under-23s and under-18s players for the tie.

Rooney has to isolate because he has regular close contact with old women...

I don't think there is any precedent for suspending a game because one player is showing symptoms. Bristol City knew they could get away with it, and with an FA Cup coming up as a chance to take a further break, they did so... We just have to live with it...

City manager says:

"We came in on Friday for a normal preparation day to do some video analysis and some out on the grass training, and it was clear that out on the grass there were some symptoms in the squad."

So why the f**k did the player(s) who were displaying symptoms, decide it was a good idea to go in and train??!! :mad:

Let's push to get this match on for next Wednesday and play them before their injured players have time to recover.

Would also mean that dasilva suspension would be over quicker lol
:giggle: And only gives them 1 day between their FA cup, I’m sure they’ll complain about that !
Also gives us another days rest before we play Reading the following Saturday.

And if that happens the Reading game will be Jos Dasilva last game suspended

Isn't the Bristol C chief exec on the EFL board? Mark Ashton.

Simon Bazalgette is a non-executive member and he lists himself as a supporter of Brentford FC.

Might be interesting to be a fly on the wall at the next EFL board meeting.

Sounds like the Jolly Boys outing! Perhaps they had to turn back, as they'd run out of Light Ale by the time they got to Chippenham!

From Bristol Post

With the club having tested all of the squad this week for COVID-19 following the postponement of last Saturday's match against Brentford, all tests have come back negative, meaning that Sunday's game is not in jeopardy.

The testing lab is dictated by the league (according to BC local press), it is not a case of googling for "where can I test 20 blokes for Covid immediately" and looking at the opening hours.
BC will have told the EFL they have positive symptoms, the EFL will have told them there isn't enough time for testing and agreed the postponement.

Here are the Bristol City and Covid-positive Luton players tackling discrimination with large amounts of touching 72 hours ago
Unbelievably inept behaviour, in these times of an incredibly contagious virus pandemic, which a large minority emulated whilst the socially responsible majority endured altruistic self social isolation. The comments that have been uttered on certain podcasts by those

The comments that have been uttered on certain podcasts that might encourage irresponsible behaviour by those who should know better, beggar belief.

That was during the international break.

They played Luton on Tuesday who have also had to postpone their fixture after many actual positive tests so that might explain the many players with symptoms.

Congrats to everyone getting some new year exercise wildly jumping to conclusions. Make sure you do your stretches first. Let's just look forward to having a fully fit squad to play Spurs.

Thoughts now that it's been proved that none of their squad at that time have tested postive?

It needs to be organised ASAP. But then as their are no fans, Sunday could be the day it gets added for a Wednesday fixture.
Toney not scored in 5.
Forss scored once in 13.
Don't get me wrong, I have every faith in them. And I see others are now scoring which is great. But we need other options.

The most noticable symptom shown is the lack of taste being unable to notice the bullshit coming from their mouths

The whole statement was utter gibberish. You would think that BCFC would be able to employ a Press Officer to write something coherent and at least vaguely plausible.

BCFC... a club so well run that they were probably afraid that Benrahma would run rings around them again.

Any news on the result of the EFL investigation?

In a statement just released, the EFL have said the following:

We will be looking into this very serous matter one day, but in the meantime if Brentford fans carry on being horrible to Bristol City, we'll be deducting Brentford 30 points!

Careful what you wish for. I wouldn't put anything past the the "experts" running the game. Personally I fancy a game at Lionel Road in May with a decent crowd present.

they will let us know if they fancy it on Monday
:giggle: I don’t think they would fancy it anytime. I hope the league make them play it ASAP so they are still disadvantaged by the same injury list ( or as close as ) as possible and we aren’t disadvantaged by playing games without suitable recovery time.

Boro apparently have a fair few positive covid tests and training grounds been effectively 'shut' since Monday but looks like they're happy to go ahead with the game on sat..

So that means Jo’s Dasilva if fit is available for the Swansea away game

He was anyway.

He should be back for Luton at home now.

Boro, Bristol City and Reading now.

I think you'll find the symptoms were those of a pony old team - and City's collective Aris' went as a result.

The one positive of Da Silva being suspended was that he was going to get a 2.5 week rest. Doesn’t make too much difference as he still gets 2 weeks “off”.

It’s slightly frustrating though that Bristol City get to play us without Da Silva now. Luton was probably the preferred game to have him missing.

I guess it’s all part of luck.

Do you think that'll get extended as no way we're getting in to watch any matches this side of Easter :(
I think the club will want to start getting some revenue.
