Did I make the right decision? Sounds so :lol:

Didn't lose though. Frustrating but can't complain.

I have had enough of seeing the matches postponed and I think Premier League should follow NFL policy about Covid-19.

Why don't they use players from:
Reserves
U21
U18

I'm sure they have plenty of players to carry on, but if they do not have enough players. They would have to forfeit and give them three points. Tough.

Also, it's good to give the youth players an opportunity to play with the first team and it's shame they're not doing it. All they do is request to postpone, so they can put their best players in the first XI and get a victory.

Sad.

It's a farce and these clubs should be getting punished for it. Can't field an XI even though you've got a huge academy system full of players on professional contracts? The other team gets the 3-0 win. You'd soon have no teams asking to postpone.

The other big leagues in Europe do a much better job of forcing leagues games to be played.

Feels dirty but I'm rooting for Chelsea today, just for the possibility of the title race becoming half interesting again.

If it makes you feel better stealing state resources to the detriment of citizens is morally less reprehensible than systematically oppressing citizens and denying them fundamental rights so...

Yeah for the title race to be effectively over in January would be quite the anti-climax. Tuchel's has done alright against Pep previously so here's hoping.

Premier League has the largest points gap between 1st and 2nd place of the top 5 leagues, even PSG aren't as far ahead of 2nd in Ligue Une!

It's becoming pathetic. The main reason for the request is injuries, AFCON and players out on loan, not actually covid cases.
