Haha this is too perfect

And they’re in a far more comfortable position to play

It’s purely because Saka is out

Is he injured? What happened, did Matip's ankles get in the way if his studs?

Once the league started combining injuries with COVID, they set the precedent.


Pretty much. The PL's lack of transparency and inability to apply their own rules has caused this mess

Basically nobody.  They're saying that Xhaka's red combined with new injuries to Cedric, Tierney, Chambers and Saka means they don't have enough players.  It's a joke but I don't blame them for trying.

Edit: the PL should turn down their request as it's patently ridiculous but then again I have no love for Spurs either.  I think I'll just root for as much drama as possible then?

Whole thing is mad.

Leagues’ fault allowing injuries and now it seems suspensions to be a factor,

The ONLY factor should be a training ground being closed due to covid cases, so that teams simply cannot be together to train and prepare.

In this case with Arsenal, as with Leicester, they should be playing their U23’s, or forfeiting - up to them.

THey've already set the precedent with Leicester (called their last 2 games off due to injuries and AFCON).

They were okay beating up Leeds's reserves the other week and demanding to play our under 10s last week.

Is that the new players out? So Tomiyasu, Cedric, Chambers, Tierney, Smith-Rowe, Odegaard, Partey Elneny, Xhaka, Pepe, Saka & Aubameyang in total? I'm just trying to work out how likely this is.

Oh I agree about Tottenham. Arsenal fans are beginning to get back to peak Wenger days, where (as discussed in this thread) any pass more than 5 yards was a hoof. Yet they're still infinitely better than Tottenham so am not fussed if they succeed but no doubt they'll try it again for our game on Thursday.

Just on Saka, I'm still cynical as to whether he's injured or not. It seems to be late on in games a lot of players pick up injuries if they're getting the result they want. To the point where I'm actually surprised if there is a genuine injury.

On top of the pre-existing issues, there were more injury problems for Arsenal during/after last night’s game. Understand Chambers, Saka and Tierney all picked up knocks, along with the injury that forced Cedric off.

I hope they play so that Xhaka is available to face us in the second leg  ;D

Let me get this right. Arsenal ask the EFL to investigate us for asking for a game to be called off. Then next game they ask for their game to be called off?

Sod that. He'll only get sent off making it much more difficult for us to break them down. ;D

These postponement requests did originally seem to be around Covid cases, now it seems to be more around injuries and a availability, and if you can muster a couple of Covid cases up in your youth team then hell, why not go for it.

The EFL have made a rod for their back with the ‘so many fit players rule’ they should have made it about x number of (proveable) Covid cases.

 :lmao what a bunch of hypocritical twats - and im aiming this at the fans who lost their shit cos of our game was called off, all the posturing, 'analysing', slanted arguments and accusations of us cooking the books cos 'we were afraid' to play them

now they just say, ah shit we've a load of players out (covid isn't an issue), call it off (the fact they've let first team players go out on loan in a clearly unstable environment doesn't appear to have occured to them)

they said fuckall when they went to leeds who had to basically put out the kids - oh hang they did, 'get on with it' as i recall...

fucking twatfest flipflops

i always wanted our game to go ahead even if we put out kids, we just couldn't field a team, fuck 'em, would be so precious if the league said no  :lmao the levels of losing shit might even reach unseen heights and that's saying something with that lot, Whingbags FC

I don't really get why everyone thinks it is funny. They had three tough games in a row. The two legs versus us and a North London Derby in between. Their failure to qualify for Europe means they have loads of spare mid weeks to rearrange games.

Instead of playing 3 tough games in a week one with 10 men they want to put their feet up at the weekend and the field a full team against us. 
One thing does need to be said: in the post-Benitez era, there was media-led clamour (but also some politicking going on at the club) to make the club more English; the idea being that the club had lost the very essence of what it means to be ‘Liverpool’. Guillem Ballague 18/11/10

It's not funny, like you say, they're clearly trying to swing a break to give themselves a better shot at making a final. They'll say they're doing the same as us, but: (1) there was no sporting benefit to us by postponing the first leg, it meant we lost the advantage of finishing at home, (2) we had to shut out training facilities whereas they have time to promote and train U23 players, etc.

I'd love it if it turns out they have 12 outfielders available and the PL decides to postpone Xhaka's suspension so they can fulfil the fixture.

I don't really get why everyone thinks it is funny. They had three tough games in a row. The two legs versus us and a North London Derby in between. Their failure to qualify for Europe means they have loads of spare mid weeks to rearrange games.

Instead of playing 3 tough games in a week one with 10 men they want to put their feet up at the weekend and the field a full team against us.

Yeah it's quite transparent. Probably got a few with knocks (it's January players all have them) who they want to rest up for  the second leg  so will claim injury. Supposedly a player short within the ruling yet have just loaned two out. It's nothing to do with Covid it's just them being 'clever'. As you say don't need to worry about a fixture pile up.

This gives them an advantage for Thursday. They were already given home advantage 2nd (with no away goals as 0-0 would be a good score for us) and yet are still going on about the postponement.
Could have done with Grujic and even Chirivella to tide us over this season
