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.

    With City's CL game postponed, imagine if City-Arsenal is rescheduled for DGW30. Might bring in Auba+Kun and TC one of them

      And then it will get postponed again

      yeah cause that's guaranteed to work!

      the time to TC was the Liverpool double in 24

    I hope they just postpone all the games until everything is sorted.
    Not worth risking anyone's wellbeing.

    1. KGFC

      Best is to cancel the league... Too much of risk.. from corona and Pool's gloating fans from winning their debut PL title :-p

      1. Amey
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 22 days ago

        Ha
        Even in my most cruel wish, I don't think they should cancel it.
        Liverpool deserve to win it.

        It'll be an interesting scenario nonetheless 😉

        1. KGFC
          • 3 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Dude you are not a true Utd fan! Although I too agree that Pool deserve to win but comn man, the Utd in me doesn't want me to accept 🙂

          1. Amey
            • 1 Year
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Ha ha
            I don't think I need to wish bad for Pool to be a United fan.

            You may find it stupid, but Pool winning it might be the catalyst that may push us to sign good players & get back to glory days (especially if OGS is till at the helm)

            1. KGFC
              • 3 Years
              2 months, 22 days ago

              I agree you don't have to wish bad for Pool to be a Utd fan. Just don't admit it when we are so far behind 😉

              City has won it a couple of times since we last won and yet we are so far away. It's not Ole or Poch or someone else. Until we have WW and we keep making stupid decisions like Pogba (yeah I don't rate him highly) then I don't see us winning the league again.

              1. Amey
                • 1 Year
                2 months, 22 days ago

                It's going in right direction at least now my friend 🙂
                One CDM + One RW + one striker + One CM if Pogba leaves & we're good to go for a definite top 4 end IMO.

                You can't just turn sh.t to hit in one season but this is good step ...

                First team is well set now:

                DDG/Henderson
                AWB/Portuguese lad
                Maguire
                Lindelof/Baily
                Shaw/Williams
                Matic/mcTomnay/* new signing
                Bruno
                Fred/Pogba/* new signing
                Rashford/Tony/Sanchez
                Tony/Ighalo/*new signing
                James/mata/* new signing

                Only real weaknesses are RW CDM & out n out striker.

                  I love your optimism and enthusiasm. Its not like we didn't try to sign the players we needed earlier. Yet we haven't seen the sight of the title since 2012! IMO, its not about filling positions, its about finding the right players who have a hunger to play for Utd. Currently, we are just throwing money to get in players. Or in cases, not using it wisely. Selling Kaku and loaning off Sanchez without finding a replacement shows the ineptness of people managing the club. Tony and Rash are good but not good enough to be challenging the likes of Pool or City!

                    You're right.
                    I'm maybe overexcited

      10-15m £ for him is a great deal to sign him permanently i guess.

    We are considering banning major public events like sporting fixtures," said Johnson.

    "The scientific advice is this has little effect on the spread - but it does place a burden on other public services."

              For the majority of teams the better solution will be to cancel the season instead of wasting time rescheduling.

              Also the players are employees with rights to holidays etc which would be broken if they were forced to play through the summer.

                For majority maybe but what about those who invested heavily with the promotion in plans.

                My opinion season should be finished on the pitch albeit not at all costs but if UEFA cancel Euros then there is enough time to do it in May\June.

      If football across all the divisions is cancelled and champions, promotion and relegation cannot be sorted, then all teams should start next season with the number of points they have now and play a full season on top of that. This does not penalise teams at the top or bottom of leagues and does not make this season irrelevant.
      I'm not talking FF as this doent really matter in the scheme of things.
      My main focus this season from a FF point of view was to achieve promotion from league 2 division1 to the top H2H league, and like my beloved Leeds United I'm sitting top at the moment, so it could be a double disappointment for me.
      Let's get this done.

              Just looked at your position, you have a tough job to survive. What do you think will happen with the H2H league promotion and relegation if the season ends soon.
              If a football match lasts 60 minutes, the result stands doesn't it. The FF season has completed 29 out of 38 weeks (more than 2/3rd). Just putting it out there.

    To everyone asking about what transfers to make for GW31 ... are you actually living in your mum’s basement somewhere cut off from the world and other media, except FFS ?

      You know the answer is yes.

      If you are expecting to have a serious discussion about politics or epidemiology in a website dedicated to fpl, maybe you are the one living in your parent’s basement?

        Is there any UK-based forum/message board? What are the popular ones?

      He's PM, so at some point he's probably likely to say something that will have a direct effect on the national sport.

    So Periera out for the season.

    Move to Alonso?

    1. Old Man
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 8 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      Looks like decent shot. Or Doherty if you're not FHGW31

      1. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        I already have Doherty,Periera,VVD,TAA,Lascelles.

        I was going VVD > Alonso but VVD our on hold.

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          Here's an unlikely possibilty for you - Mendy. If he plays then City have some juicy fixtures in the last 9 weeks, but Sane might be fit soon.
          I think your first thought is best, but even he might not play them all.

          1. The 12th Man
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 6 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Not thought of Mendy.
            Think I’d do Doherty >> Mendy later

    2. Hazz
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 2 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      You're in the exact same situation as me (VVD + Pereira).

      Alonso feels like a decent enough punt.

      1. The 12th Man
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 6 Years
        2 months, 22 days ago

        I could go cheap as well to someone like Taylor.
        Or even a United defender.

        Might even put the armband on Alonso if I get him.

    @seanfromenderby says the 3 names have been disclosed to him...but he won't divulge.
    What a power crazy tease, boooo.

    He could have just said he didn't know, or not post at all.

    1. Brosstan

      Smart enough to realize he cant reveal sensitive medical information without losing his source..

  22. JustPark

    I'd take it Boris is a Liverpool fan?

    1. Jarvish Scott Talent

      Because he is an idiot?

      1. JustPark

        Harsh. Could be the group of scientists behind.

        1. Old Man
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member
          • 8 Years
          2 months, 22 days ago

          I think that the scientists are spot on with their advice. They're taking known behaviour into consideration.

          1. JustPark
            • 4 Years
            2 months, 22 days ago

            Agreed but I don't they're doing well at containing the outbreak. The numbers are just spiking if we're comparing with some of the southeast Asia countries that were the first outside China.

    I'm not an alarmist by nature, but even though all these sports stars are the least susceptible to COVID-19, you just know at least one A-list sportsperson is going to succumb to this (the same way you just knew AM were going to overcome Pool last night when Pool didn't make the most of their 40+ shots at goal). When that happens, the necessity of all these extra games will be deeply questioned...

    1. Brosstan
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      2 months, 22 days ago

      I highly doubt any fit young sportsperson will die from the virus.

      1. ClassiX
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 1 Year
        2 months, 22 days ago

        The problem are if there are any comorbidity issues - for example, a fit guy with asthma is significantly more at risk. If any of these people have any other significant underlying conditions - undiagnosed heart issues etc. then the risk is multiplied. Like I said, not wishing it happens, but will unfortunately not be too surprised if/when it happens.

        Don't think it will happen but might be worth keep on checking on Andy Caroll - with his injuries record...

          • 5 Years

          Abou Diaby would have been dead already. Luckily he retired

      I'm hoping that they suspend/cancel the season so that I can pack my bag and concentrate on something important.

      Its getting annoying now.
