Max Rushden, Barry Glendenning, Natasha Henry and Marcus Bean discuss the increase of Covid-related postponements, plus Leeds’ highs and lows. Sid Lowe also talks Kieran Trippier, Diego Costa and Lionel Messi
We start off by discussing the recent rise in Covid-19 cases across football, with postponements affecting numerous games across the professional English pyramid [now Spurs v Fulham too]. Are calls for a two-week circuit breaker justified?
Afterwards, we discuss Leeds’ emphatic win over West Brom, before asking whether official football social media accounts have a responsibility to discourage pile-ons following Leeds’ tweet about Karen Carney’s post-match comments.
Finally, we speak to Sid about the reaction in Madrid following Kieran Trippier’s lengthy ban from football, Diego Costa’s contract termination and Lionel Messi saying he wants to play football in the USA.
