Im assuming the project restart can be put an end too before it starts going. Im just assuming due to the number of positive tests which have arose.

Or can the league government etc call an end to it if the want too.

{Ed002's Note - Of course, it may not be possible to complete the season for whatever reason.}

Agree0 Disagree0

6 positive out of all the testing I think is quite low but I get what your saying STRALFC.

19 May 2020 17:02:52
I'm amazed it's so low tbh 6 from 748 (.8% positive), these players can now self isolate etc. And it's great that they picked up on the positive tests before they all went back to normal training.

Obviously it's still 6 too many but now get the rest tested and see where we stand.

Why should it be stopped? The whole economy would collapse if we took that attitude .

I’m hoping I start back to work on the 1st June, if someone tests positive the business won’t stop.

I have no choice, if we start on the 1st I’ll need to be in, I don’t have the luxury of a £100k per week salary, whereby, like many others, can’t afford to say, I don’t want to go back to work.

19 May 2020 19:09:07
Ok. So based on that logic the players shouldn't have any reservations about returning to work and possibly putting their health and that of their families at risk because they have the luxury of making over 100k a week.

19 May 2020 19:51:44
We all have reservations, we all have families, me included, but the fact of the matter is, we all have to return to work at some point. If I decide not to go back to work until a vaccine is found, I’ll be out of a job, I’ll bet that wouldn’t be the case for Someone like Danny Rose or Aguero.

My salary has been decimated due to being furloughed, I have to wait outside Sainsbury’s for half an hour before I can get my shopping, do you think these pre Madonna’s do on their £100k a week?

19 May 2020 20:53:23
I have worked all the way through this as an emergency worker, close contact and still have a family for a lot less money than a footballer. so yes I think they can return to work.

If the incidence rate of the virus is less than 1% amongst the PL football squads, that’s less than the population at large.
I wonder about Troy Deeney’s statement, what’s he going to do? Stay isolated at home for the next x months until there’s a vaccine?
I’d argue that there could be a higher risk of contracting the virus from the general population rather than a select number of physically fit, affluent, tested and isolated footballers?
Of course it’s up to him and his club what he does. You can understand his
reluctance and fear but, as we’ve discussed, that risk can never be eliminated at present.

I’m with drogie and baz here! It’s ok for Stacy in Tesco on minimum wage to go to work or Tom in the garage but the 100k ballers are having a wet one! We all want safety but some are taking the piss And need to get with the program because like it or not fans will start turning on players and those big wages will be hit!

20 May 2020 01:51:50
Juicer, Troy Deeney has a 5 month old baby who has had breathing problems. Yes he can afford to stay home but I would say this changes things. It's his right to choose to protect his baby.

20 May 2020 06:56:05
Couldn't get past "pre Madonna's" 😂🙈.

20 May 2020 08:53:32
Potclay, he needs to have his decision respected and if he doesn’t want to return then that’s fine. The argument is though that he has that choice, some of us working, in particular those in supermarkets and healthcare are not the safest environments but need to work in them to keep their families fed and housed. If they chose to not work, they would likely be unemployed whereas Deeney can just live off the small fortune he’s likely to have built up for a few months.

20 May 2020 14:01:14
Wow human decency at its finest right hear boys! if I had a child and could afford to I would not be going anywhere to put his health at risk be it work or shops. family first I'd happily end next season before it started than put a childs life in danger.

20 May 2020 14:32:57
Surely if Troy deeney has a kid who has issue's, he would want to get tested? I'm sure I would, I've no problems with him choosing to stay home, but why should he get full pay when the rest don't, as someone else mentioned, he can afford to?

21 May 2020 01:51:23
WYred, totally understand your point of view. However he is rich and we are relatively not! This is the nature of our society and capitalism in general. If I could kick a ball like Stevie G, and I had a kid in the danger zone then I would make the same choice. I think this is a case of blame the game not the player.
John Wigan, I don't know if he will be receiving full wages or not, however are you telling me that people all over the country in the same position wouldn't take the handout. Obviously I'm playing devil's advocate here, but the vitriol towards players has been disproportionate to the rich elsewhere in society.
We all dreamt of playing for our favourite club. A lucky/ hardworking few made it and we get to stand back and judge them for it.

21 May 2020 01:55:22
It would help if some of them stopped making a mockery of the lockdown rules in the first place.

21 May 2020 10:26:18
Pot, i agree I would always look out for my family first. And as I said I would completely understand his decision if he chose not to return.
But it's the whining and not realising the position he is in that winds people up.

I would imagine there is a good percentage that would love to stay home to protect vulnerable ones they live with but they will have to make a choice over safety or working to keep the roof over their heads and food on the table.

I understand WYred, good luck to you mate!
