    my other query is, how the hell is the transfer window going to work in the summer? Chelsea were sensible getting Ziyech done in hindsight.

    yh, it will have been the Europa League ties a few weeks ago. It may be precautionary in that sense now he's positive, but to be honest the way this government's handling it I won't be surprised if they have some positives just from general spread.

    This season is not going to be completed. Just when we were actually going to win the CL!

    It's only a matter of time before some players and/or coaching staff catch it and more games will follow.

    The arsenal site lists it as actual players as well as staff that met the Olympiacos owner.

    Some players are self isolating, as well as some staff.

    The below is took from the Arsenal link -


    Following yesterday’s news that Olympiacos owner Evangelos Marinakis has recently contracted Covid-19, we have been taking medical advice and tracing any individuals who had what the guidelines define as close contact with him at the game 13 days ago.

    As a result of this exercise we identified that a number of players met the Olympiacos owner immediately following the game.

    The medical advice we have received puts the risk of them developing Covid-19 at extremely low. However, we are strictly following the Government guidelines which recommend that anyone coming into close contact with someone with the virus should self-isolate at home for 14 days from the last time they had contact.

    As a result, the players are unavailable for tonight's match against Manchester City and the Premier League has decided the game should be postponed.

    The players will remain at their homes until the 14-day period expires. Four Arsenal staff, who were sitting close to Mr Marinakis during the match will also remain at home until the 14 days are complete.

    Manchester City’s Premier League fixture at home to Arsenal has been postponed.

    The decision to postpone tonight's game has been taken as a precautionary measure on medical advice, after it emerged that personnel from Arsenal FC have come into contact with the Olympiacos owner, Evangelos Marinakis, who has been named as a positive case of COVID-19.

    Manchester City FC wishes Mr Marinakis a speedy recovery, and further information will follow in the coming days about rescheduled dates, but supporters are advised not to travel to Etihad Stadium for this fixture.

    Boris will be pissed off. A preventative measure taken without him being able to stop it.
