Haven't got the exact figures to hand to see if this is the right amount for it to work, but how about a campaign to get every top flight player, or all players across the 92, to put 1% of their weekly wage into a central pot to pay for regular weekly testing across the lower leagues?

Have it backed or matched by the PFA, and promoted as the football family looking out for each other and you cant go wrong.

Then rigid rules can be put in place and clubs or individuals cannot lose out by testing (as Orient did)

Or get the agents to pay for all the tests, as they have to look after their clients with their best interest at heart

Are "they" trying to say there isn`t enough in the pot amongst millionaire owners, the EFL, the PFA, TV Income, salaries etc to fund a test that is as little as £65 privately??

If "they" went to BUPA and said we need 60-80 tests a week across 92 clubs ....what`s the best price? Then everyone gets it at the same price.

Take about privilege.............

Why should the top flight players pay? It should be the clubs. Why should the leaches in charge of the big six, who have countless billions of pounds, expect their employees to cough up?

It's about time the REAL money earners in football got the bad press instead of the players.

So, we're all ok, no need to worry. Covid-19 is just another flu virus, the test to detect it is flawed, WHO have got it wrong, Governments around the world are committing crimes against humanity, the drug companies are going to make millions and this nice chap is going to sue everybody. Is that about it?
Yep but it isn't just one chap is a group.

Please don’t post this sort of rubbish. It’s at best silly and at worse really dangerous. ‘Health Impact News is a network of health sites that publishes false content’.

It's all a bit shouty for me.

Can't help thinking that if you need to be shouty...

I think I'm going to buy shares in tinfoil production and metal recycling sectors. Sales must be about to go through the roof with the number of people now seemingly accepting this type of Qanon-esque tripe and in need of hats.

Lump on folks....you'll be quids in
