    They do have to isolate este but not in a government facility and are allowed out to play & train.

    Some sort of special dispensation for elite footballers.

    Yes, it was last fridays game in Venezuela, anyway **** knows they keep changing the rules, then special rules for elite sportsmen (so they can't catch or carry the virus?)
    A bit like the subs rule, check before each game, lol.

    A bit like VAR or let refs allow players to kick fk out of each other and wave play on one week then send Cooper off for holding when everyone else is wrestling in the box at corners

    VAR, don't get me started!
    VAR, what is it good for?
    Absolutely nothing
    Say it again.
    You know the tune.

    Promising snippet on Raphinha and the talk he is now being wanted by everyone, on Brazilian TV he thanks Bielsa and Leeds for his development and being selected for Brazil… Of course his feelings might change when Bielsa decides not to renew…

    Uraguay are one of the top teams in the world and just look at their line-up with Cavani and Suarez up top but even when they put Nahitan Nandez at RB instead of his normal DM/AM role he ended up being subbed off. Ripped apartby Raphinha and Naymar

    Am I right in thinking Raphinha is our first Brazilian International?

    I can only actually think of two other Brazilian players Roque Junior and Adryan

    Correct but I can add Rodrigo to that but he played for Spain instead and why he and Raphinha have such a great personal freindship

    Roque Junior was a full international when we signed him. He played for Brazil for another couple of years after his dismal 5 games for us.

    Any journalistic newspaper that is able to unravel the governmental conspiracy and reveal that the British Space Agency was able to land a red double decker bus on the moon in secret, without any other major space agency being aware of the fact, is surely going to be just as 100% accurate with all future stories ;)

    What a joke we have no senior players on the bench today except Forshaw. No Phillips, Ayling, Raphina or Firpo and Bamford, all normal starters out. Down to bare bones now

    Thanks to Liverpool for smashing 5 past Watford which means we move up to 15th on goal difference if we get a point today

    I think today we will see Joffy replace Rodrigo up front with Rodrigo replacing Roberts at 10. I think we may see Summerville replace James or Harrison and we will see Forshaw replace Klich. Of course I could be well out of my depth, but struggling to see how Bielsa manages to lose 6 first team starters and have a coherent side able to beat Southampton
