Has Tottenham just been handed some much-needed luck?
Tottenham has just issued a statement concerning the next couple of fixtures and the COVID-19 Virus.
The FA, Premier League, EFL, Barclays FA Women’s Super League and FA Women’s Championship have collectively agreed to postpone the professional game in England until 3 April at the earliest.
This action, which will be kept under constant review, has been taken due to the increasing numbers of clubs taking steps to isolate their players and staff because of the COVID-19 virus.
Our Premier League home fixtures against Manchester United and West Ham United, as well as our home WSL fixtures against Birmingham City Women and Chelsea FC Women, Women’s FA Cup tie at Arsenal, Premier League 2 fixture at Arsenal and Under-18 Premier League fixtures away at Aston Villa and at home to Arsenal, have been postponed and will be rescheduled.
We shall continue to keep fans updated across Club channels – we appreciate your support and patience as we attempt to minimise the impact of COVID-19 across Club operations, continuing to prioritise the health and safety of our players, staff and supporters.
Our thoughts are with all those currently affected, and we wish them well.
At the same time, they’ve also issued a statement that says Son is back in circulation (i.e. he has started training). This also goes with the news that Kane and Sissoko are also in training.
It was only a couple of days ago our (Spurs) situation looked dire, and our game against United looked doomed to defeat. Now, thanks to the FA, we’ve been handed a lifeline. The extra two weeks (maybe more) will give our players extra time together to train, plus get our injured back to fitness.
We thought we were looking down a dark and horrific hole; now we can see a glimmer of light flickering up at us.
