Problem is, it's clearly not, & the only way it would be, is for players, officials & support staff to receive negative tests for 14 days & then be in compete isolation.

That might work for the 9 remaining round of games, but going forward?

My guess that the training ground environment is fairly tightly controlled but a cordon sanitaire is not possible. Players are let out and even with the best advice from their clubs still manage to come into contact with the virus and get infected. The current level of infection is manageable but the stumbling block is always the general level of infection in the general population is too high

Temperatures could prove a real leveller if this weather keeps up over the course of any games played. The players could end up wacked, especially following such a long layoff. I would imagine evening kickoffs would come into play more. Another consideration will be the pitches may well be harder leading to more impact injuries to ankles, knees, hips etc. Challenging times for ground staffs as well as the players.

In itself no. Although it won't take a lot to stop it. We have had 2 sets of roughly 1000 tests. First set found 3 the second found 10 this is a 3 fold increase. This is in an environment which is about as sterile and controlled as any that we could imagine.

 A further 3 fold increase and  I think the EFL would have to take stock of what they were doing because at that point they could hardly claim that the counter measures were working.

This is what they are waiting for imo because the numbers are increasing giving them sufficient reason not to to continue or put it off again at the 8/6/20 meeting.
It could well be what they are semi-secretly hoping for, so much easier for them.  There would surely have to be at least 2 weeks notice even if they decided to resume on the 8th?  Maybe they are drafting a seriously congested programme to rip through it quickly?  God knows, but right now if they do cancel and go for PPG, that will do for me.

It is not so much the number of positive tests ,although that willl be off putting to me it is the number of different clubs affected. More clubs with infection= more chance of contagion

If possible I would prefer our season to not restart anyway providing we are promoted via points per game so far. With a fully fit squad in a normal season environment I still fancy us to be getting enough points to be top 3-4 but starting again with various levels of fitness and a strange game-day atmosphere I fear it could end up as more of a lottery for us.

I think we've got more to lose than gain if our season re-starts and I'm not particularly bothered about finishing the season in 'the correct way'. It's been a strange old year which not many people will look back on as a normal season. The important thing is that we finish it by getting promoted as every team could really do with whatever TV money becomes available for Prem clubs next season.

It is definitely a lottery and we have got more to lose than gain. The only way we can’t go up now is if we play the games on the pitch. All the variations of PPG see us go up.

13 in well over 2000 tests. It won't hinder the Championship restart.

17 people connected to EFL clubs test positive for virus , 10 in the championship
