Not a great set of results today. Now 6 points off the play offs and interestingly Walsall who looked so dangerous against us have lost 3 in a row. Another goal for mullin too.

Agree with RLC on the season in general

The plot thickens. It was the Colchester chairman who called the game off - unilaterally it seems. https://www.cu-fc.com/news/2021/january/tranmere-update-statement/ He may have made the right call, but surely the referee in consultation with the EFL should have made the decision. Knowing that there was Covid in both camps, could not all players have been given rapid Covid tests by their club doctor today?

There is also a discrepancy between his statement and the one issued by Rovers earlier indicating that TWO rather than several players were showing covid symptoms.

It also does not explain why the match was called off at 1.30 rather than first thing this morning. Surely a decision should have been made before that ?

It seems that clubs can basically make the rules up as they go along, because no proper procedures have been put in place by the EFL and there are no sanctions for clubs that refuse to play.

If the Tranmere players displaying symptoms test positive, our next couple of games could be off as well.

The 2 players will have to isolate anyway I would think our next couple of games will be off.

Will that mean forfeiting the cup game at Barnsley?

Again, haven't read about that one? Mendy, Mitrovic and a few of the Spurs squad seem to have been ignoring the rules though.

Apparently Sancho flew in from Germany on his private jet for one of them...... He also flies his barber out to Germany every few weeks !
