Such a buffoon. Rushed to make some transfers and brought in Maddison and Dennis. I give up.

Wow, that’s more than two weeks away, so much can happen in that time... will the “new” postponement rules be in force by then?

FS Record: FPL: Similar to Everton - haven't cracked the top 10k glass ceiling yet, neither have I had and sub 500k shockers either!
International tournaments: Better, 11k in WC 2018 and top 1000 way back at Euro 2012!

New postponement rules bought in - 4 confirmed Covid cases required to request a postponement.

Although this is a welcome change, with Covid rates now the lowest since late November, this is a spectacular closing of the stable door after the horse has bolted.

I agree, it’s a welcome change.

There’s a sting to the tail about ‘lowest rates since late November’ though. As we’re currently finding with our kids’ school, once it gets in to a cohort the background level of infection is immaterial. It spreads and quickly.
At headline level this change would appear to address that by allowing postponement in that scenario; rather than the current system where Covid need only have a peripheral impact

Yeah I agree, I think 4 is a fair number which should stop the cynical mickey taking from the likes of Leicester, whilst also not compromising the safety of clubs with genuine outbreaks like Burnley had recently. I just wish we had this in place at season start rather than now, but better late than never.

To be fair..... it's only now (ish) that we are confident that this version is a fast spread low death variation, opposed to the more fatal first variant.
