I am finding this with a few prem clubs though, ship out the squad on loan then complain about fixtures.Shameless.
They've been slagging Liverpool off all week because of the "false positives" story (to be fair it was shady as fuck) but now they're trying to get the derby postponed because they claim they don't have enough players. Four at AFCON, 1 suspended and they've literally just loaned 2 out so there are 7 that either just plain shouldn't be excused or are the club's own fault. Last night they only had 1 COVID positive ffs.
Confirmed.Gone by Monday it seems.
In one sense this could really screw up any potential transfers this month. Especially if any new manager wants anything to spend come summer.
I wonder what the number is on the financials for compensation. We have Koeman, Silva, Allardyce, possibly Ancelloti...
