Arsenal manager Arteta tests positive for coronavirus

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) – which has lead to the Gunners’ Gameweek 30 match at Brighton to be postponed.

The news was revealed in an official club statement on Thursday evening that explained the Spaniard would, in line with government guidelines, begin a period of self-isolation.

Included in the statement was confirmation that Arsenal’s London Colney training centre had been closed and that a “significant” number of individuals who work there will also self-isolate.

This is expected to include the “full first-team squad and coaching staff” although it must be remembered that West Ham’s squad and manager David Moyes were all in contact with Arsenal in Gameweek 29.

Furthermore, Arsenal also faced League One club Portsmouth at Fratton Park over the last 10 days.

“Our London Colney training centre has been closed after head coach Mikel Arteta received a positive COVID-19 result this evening. Arsenal personnel who had recent close contact with Mikel will now self-isolate in line with Government health guidelines. We expect this to be a significant number of people from Colney, including the full first-team squad and coaching staff, as well as a smaller number of people from our Hale End Academy which we have also temporarily closed as a precaution.” – Arsenal statement

The news came just a short time after the Premier League had issued a statement of their own to insist that all Gameweek 30 matches were scheduled to go ahead as normal.

However, this latest update is likely to put paid to that directive, as the entire Arsenal squad is now unavailable for their Gameweek 30 trip to Brighton.

As a result, the Seagulls announced later on Thursday evening that their meeting with the Gunners had now been called off.

“First and foremost our thoughts are with Mikel Arteta and we wish him a speedy recovery.

“It’s absolutely essential the health and wellbeing of individuals takes priority and with that in mind, Saturday’s match has been postponed. We apologise to all fans for any inconvenience but trust everyone will understand that we are all facing an unprecedented situation. As expected, the Premier League have now released a subsequent statement announcing an emergency meeting with all clubs on Friday morning.” – Brighton chief executive, Paul Barber

“In light of Arsenal’s announcement tonight confirming that their first-team coach Mikel Arteta has tested positive for COVID-19, the Premier League will convene an emergency club meeting tomorrow morning regarding future fixtures. The Premier League will make no further comment until after that meeting.” – Premier League statement

      Can't believe the fa letting this league continue just so Liverpool win the league. Rigged from top to bottom. Disgrace.

        What's triggering me is people on social media acting as if they care of about players / publics health. When really they just don't want Liverpool to win the league. Pathetic.

      We're gonna need an extra WildCard or FreeHit to finish the season at this rate.

    Anyone feel like the expert who is claiming fans are likely to infect around the same number of people in their family as they are in a football stadium is kind of talking sh1te? I mean, I can't recall who it was and haven't checked his credentials and yeah yeah policy driven by mathematical modelling etc, but, really? This just doesn't make sense to me. Close contact at pub, on public transport, at turnstiles, on concourses, in seats, at half time on concourses, in toilets, then do it all again in reverse. He's trying to claim you'd be proximate and likely to infect the same couple of people as at home, if that's where you were ordered to stay. Does this make any sense?

    1. El Presidente

      Supposedly British government's chief medical officer can you believe It?

      He should have been fired in the spot.

    2. SHOOTER MCGINN

      I guess the argument is that if the football is going ahead everything you said is the same except instead of people being sat outside they'll be crammed in a pub instead (where the football is televised).

      For the sake of the league maybe no fans and no TV coverage could keep things going and reduce the impact. Then match of the day would be a great watch too. Not that sky or BT would allow that...

    How infuriating if it was next week and we’d all played our FHs!! Wonder if FPL will reinstate any played non-cancellable chips if the gw doesn’t go ahead.

  4. Lazaretti
    • 2 Years
    2 months, 14 days ago

    So I think I use my FT to do Auba to Jimmy and captain him.

    Other C candidates are, Salah, Mane, KdB?

    1. pablo discobar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      It's all getting cancelled mate

      1. Lazaretti
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Yes most likely. Atm information is that all games bar BRI vs ARS will be played...

    2. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • Has Moderation Rights
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Need games to be on to bother.

      1. Lazaretti
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        True.

    3. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I'd wait until the Premier League meeting tomorrow before locking in that transfer.

      If the Wolves match is also called off - it may be a move you'll have jumped too early on.

      (Wolves have played Olympiakos, with a confirmed case & due to play West Ham, who played Arsenal, also with a confirmed case.)

      1. Manani
        • 8 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        the fact that wolves played even with confirmed case is kinda silly lol

      2. Lazaretti
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I will wait for tomorrow. It was surprising in first place when they announced that GW30 will be played that I haven't even thought any transfers yet. And plan was to save FT and C Auba.

      3. SHOOTER MCGINN
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 4 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        I thought all Olympiakos players were tested negative therefore the risk to the people in the stadium was negligible?

        Agree though the Arsenal West Ham link seems highly likely to have caused problems.

        1. Utd and Dallas Cowboys
          • 1 Year

          What about the risk the people in the stadium posed?

      At least you'll go happy knowing you got over 100pts last week.

    What way would GW29 points work considering the DGW didn’t happen? Everyone get 0? Or just let points accumulated until now without the City v arsenal games points?

    1. pablo discobar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years

      What? 29 is done

      GW29 is completed.

      1. lespaul

        Some teams will get -4 -8 etc this week

          In GW30, probably. Free hit teams should get the chip back.

    Has there been any update on employees being able to work from home? Bit annoying and concerning that we have to use the tube ten times a week given the situation

    1. pablo discobar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      Nope. I'd get cabs mate, or self isolate. But this will go on for 4 months. Stay safe mate

      1. Berbinho's Forehead
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Cabs too expensive and company not willing to reimburse. Sadly not allowing us to work from home as government haven't instructed so. Getting a bit worried if I'm honest

        1. Klaren
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 2 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          If you are below 60, not much to be worried about, just try to limit physical interaction with anyone over that age.

          If you are over 60, probably best to pretend you have symptoms and get a sick leave.

    2. how now brown cow

      Up to individual companies I guess.

      Mine is trying it out en masse tomorrow to check the kit and capacity etc.

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Hard for a train driver I imagine

      2. Berbinho's Forehead

        Stay safe mate and travel cautiously

    5. Utd and Dallas Cowboys
      • 1 Year

      I think it’s got to come from the employers themselves at this point. Initially at least. I’ve asked my employees to stagger their work hours

    6. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 14 days ago

      I'm still due in the office tomorrow, but I can't see it continuing from next Monday.

      Every client we're working with is already arranging/had made WFH arrangements - so I'd imagine decisions being made pretty rapidly. (If they're not, and you're getting no response, then WTF really.)

      1. Hazz
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 2 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Note: Work in Tech. Majority of us had a test WFH day today. Will be different per industry I guess.

        1. Berbinho's Forehead
          • 9 Years
          2 months, 14 days ago

          I work in tech which is why I'm baffled as to why I can't wfh until further notice. Usually allowed here and there but company not willing to allow everyone to wfh unless the government says so

          🙁

          1. Hazz
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 2 Years
            2 months, 14 days ago

            Yeah it's a weird one. Money is a motivator, can't help but feel that is a factor - but it feels like everyone is scrambling to arrange themselves for this before making announcements.

            I can understand that, as if there's not proper procedures then all hell breaks loose for the business - but on the flip side, it's happening everywhere.

          Try and not get too anxious about it mate, chances are we'll all get it, beat it and carry on. We cant all stay in for 4 months realistically.

          Schools will be shut in 2 weeks, and then wfh will happen too. If your very worried self isolate till then

          1. Berbinho's Forehead

      1. Berbinho's Forehead
        • 9 Years
        2 months, 14 days ago

        Not for me pal, rush hour as usual. Just more people with masks etc

        London?

      Depends on who you work for and if you can work remotely. Only a limited amount of people in a business can though so big problems ahead for the majority of businesses

    Personally I think they should cancel the Champions League for the next 2 seasons.

    1. TorresMagic™
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

        Absolutely. If they explain the rules it could get interesting.

        Kabaddi could also re-emerge as a televisual event.

    I think the last time any football was suspended or voided would have been 1939. I doubt it will be for 6 years this time.

    So they should just suspend the leagues with no deadline and as soon as its safe to resume, finish the season off even if its in august/september and start the new season after a short break if needed.

    All international football should be pushed back to accommodate the leagues and champions/europa league.

    The euros can be pushed back a year and the friendlies should be called off and nations league can be scrapped or pushed back.

        they lose money if they scrap games

        postponing them makes far more sense and theyll have extra slots now to show old games or whatever they choose.

        Social media is another story all together, imagine WW2 with social media that would be quite something

    Assuming mass postponement happens: Rewind the teams to the state as at last deadline. Chips given back, transfers undone etc. Then lock the game until season restarts. It’s harder if only some games are off

    This hit me on a really selfish level. FPL and FFS has always been my favourite escapism in other crazy times just to take my mind of it all for a few minutes.

    Now that this new reality comes crashing in to this escapism it’s a very clear and unsettling indication of the gravity of the situation.

        Disproportionate amount of volatility and uncertainty.

        I can understand comparisons with BGW & DGW scheduling, as not everyone had the means/want to work this stuff out - but this affects potentially every team, and news is filtering through team by team.

        You'll get a spike here, then another here, and so on.

        Cut off the legs for the short-term so it's a fair for all.
