Spurs v Fulham postponed as second Gameweek 16 fixture falls by the wayside

The coronavirus pandemic has put paid to another top-flight fixture, with Tottenham Hotspur’s match against Fulham now confirmed as being off.

Scott Parker’s side recorded a number of positive COVID-19 tests on Tuesday and reported that a further group of players were “showing symptoms” today, resulting in a request from the Cottagers to the Premier League to postpone their Wednesday night clash with Spurs.

It wasn’t until around three and a half hours before kick-off that word started to filter through of the game’s cancellation, with the official announcement not arriving until after 15:00 GMT.

This is the second Gameweek 16 fixture to fall by the wayside, with Everton’s meeting with a coronavirus-affected Manchester City called off on Monday.

The Gameweek 11 match between Aston Villa v Newcastle was a previous casualty, with Steve Bruce’s squad decimated by illness at the time.

The Magpies’ clash with Liverpool this evening will bring the curtain down on a curtailed Gameweek 16, with kick-off at St James Park at 20:00 GMT.

No announcement has yet been made on when the outstanding fixtures will be rescheduled for, nor has there been any clue as to what the impact will be in Gameweek 17.

Fulham are due to face Burnley on Sunday, the same day that Manchester City are at Chelsea.

The ramifications for Fantasy managers could extend beyond the current Gameweek, then, and the hope will be for clear-cut information before the next FPL deadline at 16:30 GMT on Friday.

The Premier League remain confident that the 2020/21 season can continue for the time being, saying in a statement today:

With low numbers of positive tests across the overwhelming majority of clubs, the Premier League continues to have full confidence in its COVID-19 protocols and being able to continue to play our fixtures as scheduled.

Given what happened in March when similar noises made before a hasty retreat, we’ll have to take those words with a pinch of salt for the time being.

    IF the Che-City game gets called off. KdB to Son a no brainer?

        Nice one. Thanks

      I think so. I will probably get Mane for KDB

          Time to get cancello and now every has rested.

      Advance rough/smooth
      Rough: have Kane (c), Son, Dier
      Smooth: Salah (vc up to c); Alioski 12 and Soucek 3 from the bench.
      Shows needs 15 active players and none of this Brewster nonsense on the bench

      1. ALI_G
        • 3 Years

        sounds like smooth sailing to me

        I’d wait until Liverpool actually play to call salah vc a smooth

        Brewster played 90 minutes

          Yes but never gets more than 2 points, and that uncommonly every gameweek.

            First time I’ve needed him this season. Not sure it’s as big an issue as you’re making out

              No biggy! Just that people "wasting points on the bench" may be prudent in these dystopian times...

        Nice one enjoy but the last comment may not fully be correct e.g. Coufal and Balbuena on the bench ...

        1. Tambling5
          • Fantasy Football Scout Member

          Fair enough.. Coufal was my third sub.

      Rumors the PL are now checking in with Mark to hear whether the Pool game should be postponed or not. He has Mane and Salah so we all know what's happening.

        Makes you wonder how serious it was at City and whether Pep didn't make the most out of the situation to get some rest for his players.

      Surely the city and Fulham matches will be postponed this weekend?

      1. Slouch87
        • 5 Years
        2 months, 1 day ago

        You would certainly have thought so. Would be very surprised if the whole lot isn't cancelled for a few weeks.

        Fulham maybe, City I doubt.

      4. Kane and Ablett
          2 months, 1 day ago

          Suspicious if their next matches just 3/4 days away aren’t postponed given what we know about COVID , but let everyone else play on until they’re affected to reduce the pile up

        Dear Jurgen,

        It has been an abysmal FPL week. You apparently plan to bench Robertson. If you could reconsider that would be mint.

        Cheers

          Dear HollywoodXI,

          Thank you for your concern. I have listened to your voice of reason and left Robertson at home to finish his leftover Christmas cookies and ham.

          I've never felt fpl being unfair

          But some of these postponed games came as a surprise to me, maybe I'm in the dark but I feel it's a bit unfair to those of us who miss out on points in this one

          1. Twisted Saltergater
            • Fantasy Football Scout Member
            • 11 Years

            I don’t think FPL or fairness to its players comes into the decision making process.

            I think people's lives are a tad more important than fpl wouldn't you say ?

              Why do people constantly reply with nonsense like this?

              Of course lives are more important than FPL. But guess what, this is an FPL site. He's talking within the context of the game we're all playing.

              I don't think he's downplaying the worldwide pandemic.

            Yes it’s unfair. Last season when the season got cancelled in March, it was unfair on those who wildcarded that week.

            This and last season were unfair. It’s not a level playing field. But there’s nothing we can do.

            How is this any different to injured in training, injured in the warm up, or getting compassionate leave for a family death or birth of a child? Events will always happen and lay waste the best constructed of all our plans.

            There are two approaches managers could have taken. A stronger bench and not tripling and not doubling where at all possible. This would have somewhat mitigated against the worst case scenario. Perhaps this approach would reap less points, in which case if a has not taken that approach then they need to accept that they gambled on first X1 efficiency and they lost. It involves luck, but it's their own choice. It's russian roulette and a lot of managers were happy to leave themselves exposed. It's all gone a bit FFSALT.CO.UK

            2011 there were riots in Tottenham meaning the game was cancelled.
            2016 a fake bomb scare led to a game at Old Trafford being cancelled.
            These things happen.

          What is the thinking behind a two week break in PL? Players have probably just had one day off during christmas and that has lead to two games being called off.

            Vest got injured
            Did Vest to Taylor
            Taylor now injured
            AWB is fine and just got CS.
            If I had just done AWB to Benarak I would be 20 point better off and have 2FT

                didn't, as Vest was doing so well

            Saw someone moaning about games not just going ahead: the risk is that those who tested positive have already spread it to other players/staff or that false negatives have arrived, and that they may spread it to the other team's players/staff. That is exactly how you get the league shut down, especially with such a quick turnaround between games. They will wait until the last minute because they desperately don't want a shutdown or too fixtures to be pushed back, as the Euros is looming right after.

            Regardless, everyone remember to wash your hands and social distance. Masks do not give you immunity, and when vaccinated you can still spread. We'll all get through this, and the less cases we have the less there will be an impetus to lockdown. Much love to all.

                There will never ever be a single day without Covid.

                Whole planet ?
                There are people that don't want to be vaccinated or people that will not have a chance to be.
                Don't forget kids ain't going to be as a rule and allegedly little folks are the main carriers\spreaders of this virus.

                  Yes I know. But what’s the point of a vaccine if you then are being told to still stay inside for months/years till everyone has had it.

                  Not only that, they’ll probably start making you have a covid passport, so you can’t travel unless you’ve had the vaccine, etc.

              This will not end all we can hope for is significantly reducing number of infections.
              Covid 19 is here to stay.

              (4) Havoc on western democratic systems
              (5) Havoc on education, especially poor people's education
              (6) Gave Amazon and Zoom a huge windfall at the expense of many small and family domestic companies

                Did that last 2 weeks. One got rested and the other went off injured after 10 minutes. Both missed a clean sheet. Think id have preferred fodder!

                  Sounds like Coufal and Taylor. Luckily, I could not afford 4.5 for Taylor so I went with 4.4 for Lowton and got his CS this GW.

                Like MC Hammer once said,

                "You got to Pray just to make it today!"

                Also the bible says,

                "You reap what you so" (AKA "you get what put into it")

                So pray and prepare and you will do alright in Life and FPL but prolly don't waste a prayer on FPL. Bad Form

                  No such thing as a wasted prayer. I pray for my team all the time.

                  I just don't pray for other teams downfall.

                  Remember: "ask, and it shall be given to you".

            I was trying to build up for GW 18, but ended up this round without Son (c), Kane(vc), Dier, KdB, Stone, Dias and DCL. I hear people talk about strong bench, but no bench can cover that.

            I think games cancelled after deadline should count in that GW. If not the game is just decided by pure luck. And im out of the cup, beaten by 3 million ghost teams, because i played the game planning for future GWs. So it’s the end on fpl for me this season.

              I'm down to 8 players. Those of us building for BGW18 have been hit the hardest. City and Spurs were the last two teams we wanted to be postponed.

              Yep built for GW18 too and as a result forfeited Dias, Stones, DCL, Kane and Son. Meanwhile casuals everywhere getting 40+.

            Don’t comment here much but regularly browsed FFS for about 10 years now as I’ve gradually improved my strategies.

            So for the impending blank and dgw I’ve decided to play my wildcard before the next deadline to play for the DGW, not getting entirely dgw players as some tasty games or teams only playing once.

            So I’ve gone for:

            Guaita
            Holding, Lowton, Balbuena
            Fernandes, Zaha, Salah, Soucek
            Bamford, Firmino, Kane

            Martinez, Fornals, Dier, Dallas

            Can field a decent team this week (assuming games go ahead)

            Plan is to free hit for the blank and field 11, revert back to the above for DGW and lose Zaha for Saka or Zhaka or Torres

            Currently 3rd in my mini leagues with 956 points at 166.6k

            Question - should I triple captain someone or bench boost for the DGW?

                Had to downgrade one of Chilwell, Son and DCL to get funds for BB19 bench upgrades. Of course I chose the "injured" Chilwell.

                What's the maximum number of players you can now field this GW ?

                I'm down to 8 including two 2 pointers from the bench.

                  I'll be quartered for this, but I have 11, Salah (C) to come.

                So how has the cancelations impacted you.
                3 Cteh 2 Spurs Taylor James and Cufal for me. a disaster when Robbo getting rested.

                  robbo, kane, son, coufal, balbuena. despite WC'ing last week i only have 9 players playing. hopefully robbo gets at least 1 point

                  My bench has Podence, Brewster and J Lewis. So 21 pts now with C Salah and J Lewis(?) to go. Total zero pts from defense so far, negative def total pts possible.

                  Feels bad to say they haven't . Used transfers to field full DGW19 team. So not a single player from the postponements (Only Zouma rested)

                  Very glad I'm not in a cash league this season though as that is 100% luck. No game should be won like that

                  4 cancelled players but it's Coufal and Taylor that hurt more ... also got Wilson but hope he plays

                  Jeez everyone I forgot DCL from my list.
                  one thing for sure is my rank cannot go down after the Pool game.

                Anyone with captain and vice captain in the same game and coming on moaning about bad luck need to slap themselves in the face three times.

                    10 years playing and you don't know that captain/ vice in the same game is a bad idea?
                    No hindsight required.

                  Nah dog, that's not cool.

                  Last year, MCI vs Watford was 7-0 zip or so

                  C-Sterling got destroyed because he got PEPPED.

                  But I VC-KDB and hauled 19 points

                  That was pre-COVID. But shows why you might want to target a game.

                    You still ran the risk of that game being cancelled and getting a zero point captaincy. Glad it worked out for you that time but I've never done it in 11 years playing and never will. Not with UK winters being as they are and especially not now with covid.

                Amongst all this uncertainty, is gw18 still best bet to free hit if I only have a couple of players?

                I'm planning to bb in dgw19 - buy that will be a last minute decision! Most of that team, and the bench is already on place! Thanks

                  I have zero playing in gw18 so easy decision for me.

                  Free hit gw18, bench boost gw19 with full 15 players, hopefully (baring any issues)
