Coronavirus updates overshadow preparations for FPL Gameweek 30

The build-up to Gameweek 30 of Fantasy Premier League was overshadowed by a string of Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates on Thursday.

Brendan Rodgers announced in his latest press conference that three first-team Leicester City players were “being kept away” from the main bulk of the squad having “shown symptoms and signs” of the virus.

The Foxes boss did not reveal which individuals were affected by this decision, but the local press have reported that, as they have shown only “minor symptoms of a cold-like illness”, they have “not yet been tested for coronavirus as they have not hit the threshold in terms of symptoms”.

Later on, a Leicester statement confirmed that “all three players were advised by NHS 111 that their symptoms were consistent with seasonal illness”.

“We’re taking all the necessary precautions that everyone is doing. We’ve had a few players that have shown symptoms and signs, so we’re following procedure really with them. They’ve been kept away at this moment from the rest of the squad. We’ll see how that develops. We have to wait and see [if it will keep them out of the weekend’s game]. It’s about having the agility to react. This is about health. This is more than football. This is players and their families and children. So with any risks that are there, for their health and everyone else’s, we have to mitigate against that. A few players who have shown symptoms, we’ve self-isolated them. We’ll see how that develops over the next couple of days. We’ve got three [players in self-isolation].” – Brendan Rodgers

Either way, the fact that Leicester’s players shared a pitch with those of both Aston Villa and Norwich inside the last 14 days will probably make the latest updates from Dean Smith and Daniel Farke more important than usual.

Alonso back on FPL radar but Chelsea defensive woes continue 2

Meanwhile, the Athletic and Football.London reported on Thursday afternoon that preparations for Chelsea’s upcoming meeting with Aston Villa were disrupted in connection with COVID-19.

Athletic Reporter Simon Johnson claimed that the Blues’ training session had been cancelled after “someone close to the squad complained of coronavirus symptoms” on Wednesday evening.

Manchester City’s schedule has also been affected, following some breaking news from Spain on Thursday morning.

It was revealed that, following one of the club’s professional basketball players testing positive for COVID-19, the Real Madrid squad was entering into 14 days of self-isolation.

This period includes Manchester City’s scheduled Champions League second-round second-leg tie with the Spanish side, which has now been officially postponed.

“Real Madrid reports that a player from our first basketball team has tested positive after testing for the COVID-19 coronavirus. Since then, the recommendation has been made to quarantine both the basketball first team and the football first team, given that the two squads share facilities in Madrid. Likewise, it has been decided to close the facilities of our sports city and it is also recommended that all Real Madrid personnel who provide their services in Real Madrid City remain in quarantine.” – Real Madrid statement

“Manchester City’s UEFA Champions League fixture at home to Real Madrid has been postponed. The decision to postpone Tuesday’s game was made in conjunction with UEFA and follows confirmation that players from Real Madrid will self-isolate, after it emerged that a player from the club’s basketball team tested positive for COVID-19.” – Manchester City statement

Elsewhere in the Champions League, the entire Juventus squad has also been placed in self-isolation following an official club announcement that defender Daniele Rugani had tested positive for COVID-19.

That development has seen their upcoming Champions League trip to Lyon called into question.

“You’ve read the news, so I want to reassure everyone who’s worried about me, I’m fine. I urge everyone to respect the rules, because this virus makes no distinction! Let’s do it for ourselves, for our loved ones and for those around us.” – Daniele Rugani

Meanwhile, Wolves and Manchester United’s Thursday evening Europa League matches are yet to be called off.

The Red Devils’ trip to Austria to face LASK has been closed off to fans, as has Wolves meeting with Olympiacos in Athens.

It was the Greek club who were at the heart of the story earlier this week as their owner, Evangelos Marinakis, who also owns Nottingham Forest, revealed he had tested positive for COVID-19.

As he was in contact with several Arsenal players for a Europa League tie at the Emirates Stadium 12 days prior to this announcement, the Gunners’ midweek trip to Manchester City was postponed, cancelling Double Gameweek 29.

Arsenal reported that a select and unspecified group of players would spend the rest of this week self-isolating to see out the 14-day period after meeting Marinakis and that they would return to training on Friday to prepare for the trip to Brighton.

Naturally, this has led to some concern in West Ham circles, as the Hammers travelled to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal in Gameweek 29.

A UEFA response to developments in both the Champions League and Europa League is likely to come next Tuesday.

The European footballing body has called an emergency meeting, sensibly to be held as a video conference, between all 55 organisations under its remit to discuss how the sport will move forward on the continent.

The fate of this season’s Champions League and Europa League are expected to be decided at this coming together, while there are already suggestions in the media that it will also see some call for Euro 2020 to be postponed until 2021 to allow major domestic divisions to complete their 2019/20 campaigns before the start of 2020/21.

The wider world has already seen a deluge of events brought to a halt by the ongoing spread of COVID-19. Following Real Madrid’s announcement, La Liga was officially suspended for two weeks, following in the footsteps of Serie A in Italy which took the same decision earlier this week.

Thursday also saw major leagues in Holland, Denmark, Sweden and Norway suspended for a period of at least two weeks, while the MLS in America moved to cease all matches for the next 30 days.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson revealed on Thursday afternoon that the government are considering banning major public events, such as sporting fixtures, which would include the Premier League. However, such decision is not expected to be immediate.

What to do if you think you might have coronavirus*

If you think you might have coronavirus or you’ve been in close contact with someone who has it:

  • stay at home and avoid close contact with other people
  • do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital
  • use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do next

The 111 coronavirus service will tell you if you need to continue to stay at home (self-isolate) or if you need medical help.

      It's the uncertainty that's making everything tricky. Only 1 game was called off unexpectedly this week and we've seen some suffer from it and some benefit from it - pure good/bad luck to be honest. It will be a shame if the season finishes in a similar fashion.

    So many questions regarding FPL at the mo and despite contacting them I got a very generic response back. It looked like they sent me the template response to those moaning about the GW29 postponement, which I wasn't doing! 🙂 They're never been very helpful to be honest. What do you think the answers are to the below questions?

    1. If the season is extended into the summer, will additional game weeks be added and/or current ones moved? Or just one large GW38?

    2. Do you think FPL would ever do anything like give players an additional wildcard/more chips to aid with the above?

    2. If you activate your wildcard or free hit ahead of a game week that is then postponed entirely will you get these back? FPL rules currently state these can't be cancelled once activated. Would you simply get what you've done for the next game week?

    1. DeadStar

      Second 2. should obviously be 3. 🙂 Cheers all

      1. Don't see why Gameweeks won't follow the same numbering system even if extended

      2. No more wildcards, expect the unexpected.

      3, Postponements happen, live with it.

        Not sure you quite got point 3. What I was getting at was if the game week didn't happen at all would those activated chips still stand? I guess you could even ask the same question for bench boost and triple cap. If all matches got postponed would you just lose them if activated? I've never experienced anything like this in FPL.

    3. Greek Freak

      No idea - good questions though. From an FPL point of view, it would be at first hilarious, and then completely exasperating, to have a septuple gameweek to round things off.

        It would be crazy! But knowing the FPL site this is exactly what may happen.

      yes they going to re-code all the game to give folks extra chips and a wc . No need to wait on that answer, i can answer it for you 😉

        They gave everyone a new wildcard before. Its not hard.

        1. Pukki Party

          Wasn't that because they messed up the update?

          When?

          I don't remember this, unless you mean when they changed/ruined the game so you had 2 wc instead of 1 ( the good old days 🙁 ). If so they had started upgrading the game very early in pre season. You think they would go to that length because a few folk on here think it's a good idea. Getting a reply alone is like getting blood from a stone

            Pretty sure it was the beginning of 2016/17 season - the site went down about an hour or so before the deadline of GW1, and loads of teams weren't able to make changes or set up.

              Was that the year everyone was locked out ?
              It would be odd to have folks ending up with 2 wildcards. If i had a wildcard left and others didn't. Id be well annoyed if FPL gave everyone another . You can see the outrage it would cause?

                It would be highly controversial. But it has happened before!

                Yeah the time people were locked out just prior to the deadline - I don't know the logistics though, I wasn't among them.

                  Somthing rings a bell but i can't remember exactly. I wouldn't hold much hope with FPL towers in all honesty. Doubt they will even respond

        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 9 Years

        Yeah didn't they give everyone an extra wildcard in a previous season? So it's not that crazy to think it couldn't happen again.

      There's no point thinking about all this. These are uncharted waters. A free online game doesn't plan what they will do if there is a pandemic.
      We have to deal with what we have and just play the gameweek in front of us till the PL finally gets suspended.

        The reason why I'm thinking about this is because it's going to make a big difference on whether to play chips now or not. If FPL are really not making any plans then there's a high chance we're going to end up with a ridiculously large GW38. Surely worth saving your free hit if that was the case. Where as if they simply give everyone a free hit (to help with the disruption) there's no point saving it. I totally accept it's uncharted waters but hopefully you understand where I'm coming from - it could end up making a big difference come the end of the season.

        1. Karan14 (Brazil Nuts)
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 3 Years
          19 days, 46 mins ago

          And there's also a chance that FPL is just completely called off for this season even if the PL is completed later on in the summer or whenever.
          You can't expect an answer for this from FPL they don't know what will happen. This could last for a month or a year who knows.
          Just try to maximise the points in the gameweek in front you I can't see the PL lasting much longer other countries are not stupid they are calling off all sporting events.

            19 days, 41 mins ago

            Yeah, fair enough. Never known anything like this (unsurprisingly). I'll probably end up just trying to play my chips in the "normal" fashion and just hope nothing controversial happens at the end of the season. One thing though, I know it's a free game and for some is "just a game" but I'm in a very competitive cash mini-league. Football is big in my life. I do take it seriously 🙂

              19 days, 37 mins ago

              It's exactly the same here mate. I'm in alot of cash leagues too and football is a big part of my life too. But I'm just going to concentrate on improving my rank with whatever gameweeks we have left and not let these uncontrollable elements change or hinder my thinking.

            Yes , they use pre season to develop the game too. Maybe even incorporate some changes.

              I think there's a good chance if it's delayed alot FPL will just write off the season. It hardly matters it's not like they have to finish the game and crown winners.

    Few hours this week looking at transfers but given all the uncertainty think I'll just roll the transfer.

    GK Pope
    DEF TAA, Cathcart, Saiss
    MID Salah, KDB, Mane, Saar
    FWD Auba, Ings, Jimmy

    Subs - Barnes, Stephens, Williams 

    That's 8 for GW31 (probably won't happen will it) and 2 free transfers.

    I'll captain a pool, with either Auba or KDB vice as they play Saturday.

    By holding off I'm not bringing more GW31 players in for a GW that just might not happen given the Virus

    If Watford v Leicester is called off my bench easily covers it?

    Think my plan is decent?

          That was because it's more dangerous to get with age

              And there was no vaccine. We have to also remember, that parents were safe those days. No parents aren't safe if kids get it now.

            Its already been established that childrens immune systems seem to be dealing better with the virus already. In turn however, by nature and in general, they are superspeaders

              Case in point - 'Hepatitis A.' Children generally show no symptoms, but seriously effect adults.

          As an owner of 2 Leicester players, I could really do with knowing who these 3 players are in self isolation!

            It doesn't matter, I think they will postpone that fixture (Sarr owner here).

            Vardy and Soy? I own the same 2 and find it extremely unlikely it’d be either of then

          Bit of nightmare making transfers this week

          Wanted Sarr but he's playing against Leicester which might be called off.
          Martial has a knock.
          Was considering Giroud but Chelsea training center scare happened.
          Pepe has to go can't risk keeping an Arsenal player

            I don't wanna keep Pepe even if he's the only immune person on the planet.

          These games being played with no fans feel strange,more like training games.

          I think we will see some very strange results and scorelines if this is the case going forward.

            Yup I agree might see some big scores.

              Why should scores be lower with no crowd?

              Yes, in hockey all away teams (except one) won here today. Home advantage is totally gone. Maybe playing home without crowd is mentally more difficult than away. Away there are always less own fans.

                Yeah, i have a feeling it might play out like that too.

                It might play into who i am looking to get in to my fpl team from now on.

          Anyone have a chance to compare EVE chances conceded by flank since GW21?

            Ask a self isolater, plenty of time on thier constantly washed hands.

            We’re massively weak down our right flank. Coleman injured and Sidibe can’t defend. I read this morning we’d conceded the third highest number of big chances from the right in the league, but not sure what period that covers.

              Imagine the championship if you voided or ended the league early. About 7 teams are within 6 points of the play offs.Not a chance in hell anything but suspending leagues will happen surely.
