Games already being suspended due to covid infected players, with late start of season will there be enough time to play games at a later date. David Moyes and 2 west ham players tested positive today and gone home. Surely they have been in contact with other players who could now have the virus but no symptoms yet, their game is being played.

Should covid affected teams forfeit games, play with any players they have even if it means bringing kids in.

The messy bit, is when the decision is made, wasn't the game cancelled last minute in the end?
If a team can field a team of their registered players and with plenty of time to prep (not all in the team squad travel), then play i would think?

Perhaps bring the test forwards instead of 45 minutes before the game, before a team travels may be? Would also eliminate the risk of one team taking it to another team.

Trouble is, there is lots going on again, where it seems to be more important than measures, will soon be back to football finding its place in that list of important things....low down. As harsh as it is on teams, clubs, people, communities, etc that rely on the club, some of which will go under soon.

Tottenham receive a bye into the next round, seems like a fair decision to me. Obviously no dates for a rescheduled game. Wonder if premier league will take same stance if a team cant play due to covid

Lower leagues aren’t testing teams like the prem. it’s up to those teams to stay safe. Maybe if a game is postponed due to positive test then that team lose the game. At least they might take it seriously and break the social distance rules. Look at the Scottish prem, 8 players from one team went to the pub to celebrate a win!!!!!! That attitude should cost points if games are postponed
