With what seems to be every major sports league in ‘this is good’, the prevailing logic on how to calm the spread of the virus is to take a break to allow the latest wave caused by the variable to pass so that teams devastated by COVID do not have to scramble to fill up the squad. Premier League clubs have been hit so hard that they had to postpone five games at the end of the season. this week.

Several managers have complained that the integrity of the competition has been jeopardized, with even Chelsea women’s manager Emma Hayes attributing the added pressure of trying to play during this outbreak to her team’s sudden exit from the Champions League.

“Our heads were all over the place. They’re human. The stress, anxiety, and worry of having to perform at a game when you think, ‘I just want to go home, I haven’t seen my family, I’ve been to the Olympics, and another birthday on my own.'”

“I don’t make excuses for the players, but I can tell you the past three days we’ve been all over the place and we’re worried about playing this match.”

However, the Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp Do not agree that the EPL should take a breakAnd Even after losing two novices and one morning rotation player with Newcastle on Thursday. His tone might have been different had the Reds not won 3-1, but his way of thinking… makes sense.

However, before I give you that, that’s a nice goal from Trent Alexander-Arnold in that game as a way of apologizing as I’m unfortunately going to be writing extensively about COVID for the rest of this article.

Look at that. Just awesome. Well, here’s Klopp’s thought process now.

“I don’t see much benefit from (stopping the Premier League) because we’re back (and) it’s still the same,” said Klopp, who has spoken candidly about pursuing science, vaccination and receiving a booster dose.

If the virus is going to go away, I’m the first to stop, go home, and wait for it to go away. But maybe not, so where’s the real point of that? Hopefully we can play and Tottenham play on Sunday.”

The break seems like a good idea until you take into account that, unlike the last time the sport was stopped, society doesn’t take a break with them. in spite of Some London bar and restaurant owners are voluntarily closing their doors In the midst of a boom The most positive cases in the country were reported in one day since the start of the epidemicPrime Minister Boris Johnson said, WL.K. Won’t go into lockdown.

If shutting down operations means players, coaches, front-office members and all of the team go home and take cover, then yes, it’s a good idea, but they won’t because we won’t – especially during the holidays. Players are still getting tested, and whether it’s now or 14 days from now, there will be positive tests. We should only hope that patrols follow appropriate protocols and procedures, which is something that can be said for any workplace.

There was no indication that we had skipped a turn in anything other than the other variable. The tides of how severe the current wave may be will probably change, but the only way to ensure that COVID will not spoil your imagination lineup again is to go on vacation until this pandemic is over, and hopefully, finally, mercifully.

Also, this is not ‘go back to work and avoid caution because the wind will blow the aura in my nose anyway,’“And neither was Klopp.

“Obviously we are going back to stricter measures around team environment, and we at LFC are totally in agreement with that,” he said.

If tougher measures are needed — such as vaccine mandates — take them. If you don’t know what they are, this is no reason to stop. Pause thinking it won’t go wrong when you resume playing because assuming everyone is singing hymns on Zoom while on vacation is crazy.

If you’ve followed the trends – and as someone who put together and copied a daily from the first cases in Wuhan until I joined Deadspin in October, you’ve followed the trends disgustingly – what happens in Europe is finally happening here (if it isn’t really) regarding situations and how we interact with them. It’s really amazing that we haven’t heard similarly loud calls from coaches in the NFL, NHL, and NBA.

Requiring professional teams to deal with it – as in the world now – may be a better idea than delaying the inevitable. If the game gets delayed or canceled along the way, honestly, who cares? Do you want to make fun of unfair things? Welcome to life during an endless pandemic.

Remember when Thanos told Iron Man it was “inevitable” before Iron Man walked away from him? Yes, this does not happen to COVID during a two-week shutdown. Tony Stark does not vaccinate the world’s population. (Although that sounds like a good story for a comic book story.) Santa does not give this gift. Unlike purple Josh Brolin, more cases are inevitable.

As long as leagues have proper safety protocols, they follow them and give teams the ability to slate or cancel/postpone matches when teams cannot participate. Is the break between Baker Mayfield and Nick Mullins really violent?

I’m with Klopp. Hopefully Liverpool play and Tottenham play on Sunday.
