Arsenal request to postpone ... 18:54 - Jan 14 with 804 viewsberkstractorboy

Looking at the Arsenal squad from last night, even taking out injuries (Saka, Cedric and Chambers) and suspension (Xhaka) I make that 1 (or 2) GK available and 15 outfield players so enough to play according to the league rules.

Is it because some of the young players on the bench are eligible for the cup but not registered for EPL?

I am not picking on Arsenal as I want it off as I want the game postponed so Arsenal can have a stronger team to batter Spurs, but its probably a good example that actually these teams could have fielded a team as most suspected.

They are using covid as an excuse when the reason players are out is injuries and African nations....

Covid can only be an excuse if any of the players from the squad last night have suddenly tested positive today .... hmmmmmm

The same Balogun they had to use for the first game of the season at Brentford when they had 6 covid cases and they weren’t allowed to cancel the game?

Why’s there so much ‘noise’ around Arsenal requesting to cancel when it’s been a farce for every other team these past few weeks I do not know.

They chose to employ players eligible for African Cup of Nations. Exclude them. Arsenal’s problem. Covid - like no club has that problem. Are they trying to wheedle their way to putting out their best side? Of course they are.

Like all clubs, they should play the fixtures if they have enough professional and youth players for 11 on the field and 3 subs. Get on with it.

… and you don’t think many of the other clubs who have cancelled games have had similar numbers and just used that as an excuse for injuries?

There was a fair bit of noise around Liverpool postponing the Arsenal game last week and the same with Leicester. It’s always been a farce.

Sadly, a lot of teams - PL in particular are stretching the rules. Burnley lose a key player as a clause is triggered and boom! Covid and injuries force a postponement. It’s beyond ridiculous.

Liverpool were falsely claiming they had 14 cases, of which 13 were false positive (hmmm)

Arsenal have been silly enough to declare 1

It’s staggering that the premier league are not demanding full transparency over numbers of affected players. No way on earth a prem team can’t put out a team.

Doesn't matter. The point of my post is that with the squad last night, forget players at AFCON or have left, even taking into account injuries and suspensions FROM the squad LAST NIGHT, they still have enough players to meet the league criteria to play.

As I said in OP, not picking on Arsenal I am using it as an example of the farce the EPL and EFL have created with "covid" postponements.
