Not sure that is true at all! They may be wondering how he caught it - despite being in isolation - which is a fair question. But one for the Scottish team to answer. 

 

Maybe  if people are concerned about the pandemic then the focus should be on the thousands of Scottish fans who piled into London despite their being a pandemic!

He wasn't in isolation for the whole time, there were question marks regarding Scotland allowing their players to return home to their friends and families for 48 hours immediately prior to the tournament although I'm not sure how the timeline for that matches up? Croatia have already expressed reservations and have been flying their squad in for each match.  I certainly wouldn't want to blame Gilmour for catching a contagious disease in the middle of a tournament played across Europe during a pandemic.

 

It does appear inconsistent that Chilwell and Mount have had to isolate due to close contact but none of the Scotland squad spending time day in and day out with the player have had to?

 

Sturgeon appears to bending over backwards for the Scottish team, she had nothing to say about tens of thousands of Scottish supporters travelling to London ticketless whilst within a matter of days banning much of the north-west from travelling to Scotland.

Another 0-0 on the cards.


Wouldn’t surprise me. 
 

I think Saka looks a good player, but he’s certainly a safer, more defensive choice than Sancho. 
 

Two holding players v Czech Republic is nonsense as well. Phillips, IMO, has the better passing range but is being forced forwards to he’s not getting as much time or space on the ball. Rice shields well but doesn’t have the passing range of Phillips or Hendo.
 

 

I know they’ve played well so far but England should be winning this game comfortably.

England winning tonight is the worst result for them.

Hmmm. Win tonight and they likely get Portugal or Germany then somebody from Spain’s group. 
 

Come second and they get anybody from Spain’s group, followed likely by France in the quarters? 
 

IMO, I’d be wanting to avoid France until as late as possible.

They won't get past Germany or Portugal.

How the fuck have England lost Mount and Chilwell.  Steve Clarke and whomever else were hugging and in a changing room with the little dipshit after the final whistle.

You're probably right.

 

I'll be watching Scotland anyway.

 

It'd be funny as fuck if somehow Scotland & Wales got to the Last 8 and England went out in the Last 16.

They hugged Scotland's Billy Gilmour (who tested positive for Covid) after the game, but apparently Gilmour didn't go anywhere near the rest of his squad at all. So they're all ok to not isolate.

I think it's more of a PR thing. Make sure the self isolate to show the public they need to.

 

It's a game England should win without them.

At least Hendo is getting a rest.

 

No doubt he'll start v Portugal or Germany and will be the reason England get knocked out.

He was around the Scotland players on the pitch and in the changing room also in plenty of pictures being hugged by Steve Clarke after the final whistle.

Of course England should win and Mount and Chilwell will miss the next game as well.

They have to self isolate for 10 days.  Southgate just said they'll miss the next game.

Apparently it's the 20 minutes in close proximity in the tunnel after the game that's triggered it. I'm still at a loss to understand how that trumps effectively living with someone 24 hours a day in isolation? I'm assuming widespread COVID announced in the Scottish squad if they go out? The Croatian's will be thrilled.

Was just about to say the same thing.

 

Obviously Mr European Cup Winning Captain, Mr Premiership Winning Captain, Mr Club World Cup Winning Captain, Mr Football Writers' Association's Player of the Year and Mr MBE has nothing on the media darlings of Mason Mounts friend and The Yorkshire Pirlo.

    • Great post, and very much my position. No real issue with FSG owning us, just wish they would let up a bit on the whole self sustaining thing and pitch a bit of their own obvious wealth into the transfer pot.
    • Trent Alexander-Arnold has expressed his delight in signing a new four-year deal.   The Liverpool right back put pen to paper on the new deal yesterday which will keep the boyhood Red at the club until 2025.   Speaking to the Official site, Trent spoke of his delight.   “I'm honoured to be given the opportunity and to be shown the trust in the club to be given an extension. So, it was a no-brainer for me. The state the club is in and where I'm at in my career is always a good option for me. To extend and make sure I'm here longer is always a good thing. I'm made up.    As someone who joined the Liverpool academy at the age of six, Alexander-Arnold said that the club has meant so much to him.   “I mean, it's the only club I've ever really known. So to be here for this amount of time and extending to be here for a longer amount of time is amazing for me and my family. It's a proud moment for me – it always is – signing a new contract here. To be given the trust, like I said before, by the club and the staff is an amazing feeling."   At just 22, the footballing resume of Alexander-Arnold is glittering on a individual and team level and one that most players would be delighted with for the entirity of their career.   Reflecting on what he has achieved to this point, the League and European Champion takes nothing for granted.   “I've achieved so many dreams and goals that I never actually thought I would. I live the dream every day really.   "Being able to represent the club and to be in and around names and players, and obviously managers and staff, that are world class every day is a privilege for me and I'm very fortunate to be in the position I am.”   Top clubs are meticulous in the planning for the next phase, and careful to not being caught out when the end of the cycle comes.   Speculation has begun over who may succeed Jordan Henderson as the next captain and despite being so young himself, Alexander-Arnold says that he is trying to impart some of his knowledge that he has learnt from his senior teammates onto the next generation.   “I've been around some amazing leaders. Hendo Millie and Virg were definitely up there as the three best that I've been in and around. I'm privileged to be able to pick up things and learn things from them. They're all different leaders in their own way – some lead by their actions and some by their words. But at the end of the day, leadership is leadership.   “I think I've been in and around the lads enough time now to not see myself as a young player. Someone who's a mature lad, capable of fulfilling those roles and being a captain without necessarily having the armband on your arm is something that I've always wanted to try to be.    “So just being a role model for the younger players, trying to keep them on the right path and being there for encouragement when they need that. Just mentoring, I'd say – kind of what like Hendo and Millie were doing to me when I was a bit younger. Then just kind of nurturing them into young men that are capable of achieving anything really.”     Reflecting on a difficult past season, Alexander-Arnold said that despite no silverware, securing Champions League football was seen as a worthy achievement.   However winning honours is their sole focus for the 2021/22 season.   “The previous seasons we were there with silverware and we were on top of the world – world champions, Premier League champions, we had everything under the belt.   "Then to be kind of brought back down to earth last season with a lot of road bumps in the way, speed bumps on the journey, we overcame them. It kind of felt like a little bit of an achievement to secure top four in the way that it was looking throughout the season at certain points.   “We have our sights set on trophies, that's our aim. It's no longer top four or doing well, Europe and things like that, getting to quarters and semis.   "We want to be in a title run coming into May, we want to be in the Champions League final, we want to be in the domestic cup finals. We want to go as far as we can. I think this season we'll be fighting on all fronts to win as many trophies as we can."

    • Varane hasn’t quite lived up to his initial promise but he’s still a better defender than the alternatives, so he’ll improve them for sure. Most would take him over Gomez. I probably wouldn’t swap them right this minute but for a ‘fantasy’ team, Varane would get the nod alongside Virge.
