I think you’re on thin ice requesting this game be postponed due to lack of players when you’ve just loaned 2 players out. If Arteta wasn’t so obsessed with forcing AMN out of the club maybe we wouldn’t be so stretched. Naive management from Cone Man
Well whatever the stipulations are for having a match postponed Arsenal obviously met it. Good for Arsenal, nice break before the 2nd Leg against Liverpool and if we have annoyed The Spuds in the meantime better still.
I’m inclined to agree Muffler but the rules are clear it seems. You must have 13 available players including a keeper. Injured players, recently injured players, AFCON players AND covid cases are deemed unavailable. Once that’s the set criteria they can’t rule against a club.
I don’t agree with any of the games being called of, even ours. The amount of money and sheer size of the squads in the Premier league it should never happen. I also quiet like seeing the younger players given a chance. Its the stupid rules that can obviously be used by the clubs if they don’t fancy it so I assume and hope they will be changed next season.
That’s all done and dusted Steve, decision made so I’m not really concerned anymore whether it was the right or wrong decision. The Premier League wrote the rule and other sides have benefitted long before Arsenal. I’m only interested now in the date for the rearranged game, if both sides are still battling for 4th it could be the decider and we have to win.
