From the BBC.....

"All incoming passengers have to fill in a passenger locator form before they arrive, listing their contact details, departure country and their UK address.

They also have to show proof of a negative Covid-19 test to be allowed entry. It must have been taken in the 72 hours before travelling, with Border Force officials carrying out spot checks.

Travellers must then self-isolate for 10 days."


That's for general inbound travellers but I'm confused as I thought "elite sportsmen" had their own rules?

Surely flying in and out for a game makes that irrelevant anyway?

Fùck knows anymore. :lol:

Auba getting a tattoo and possibly breaking protocol seems to have everyone losing their shit. At least he’s travelled with the squad so hopefully should play.

Loved the SlySports outrage at this. OUTRAGE. Oh they were all over it - the club are talking to him, is his contract in doubt now, what punishment would suit, a ban, a fine, public hanging? :twisted: :box:

OH THE FUCKING OUTRAGE. :twisted: :box:

Then right at the end, the last words out of that transfer obsessed white haired cùnt's mouth were "it hasn't been confirmed yet when he actually got the tattoo".

Arseholes. :roll: :censored:

Going into tonight's game I am wondering what arteta will see as his priority fixture of the week - will he focus on tonight's game as a possible source of champs league football next season ? Or will he still believe that it is possible through domestic league, and prioritise game against citeeh for fear of getting anally raped by his old boss and former club ?

This is not a "take one game at a time" or a "the most important game is always the next game" scenario - tonight's team selection will surely tell us where pep's cone boy's focus is. If tonight's game is the priority then does he risk Tierney tonight ? There are similar (but not as important) team selection questions for tonight, and if he rotate's players tonight it will tell us everything imo

Same starting 11 as against Leeds so. I was fully expecting Pepe and Laca to come in but I was wrong. (has that ever been written on the internet before?) :wink:

He has clearly decided that odegaard is his preferred choice in the 10 position and not smith-rowe. The one position that was actually sorted before the transfer window, is the only position that the spanish c.unt has changed up :roll: We are shafting one of our players out of his proper position (when he was playing really well), to accommodate a guy that will probably only be here for 5 months - how will smith-rowe be feeling by that time ?
Everyone, be they Gooners, or people in the media, or even opposition fans, were all crediting smith-rowe for being the MAIN reason that our results and performances had improved, and yet he is the one being shafted exactly like I said would happen

Didn't stop him getting an assist on Sunday , they are not rigid positions and will interchange and drift in , Pires used to do the same. We could have two exciting AM interchanging for the foreseeable pulling opposition players all over the place. Why not see how it pans out before criticising ?

Without a doubt smith-rowe wasnt as influential playing on the wing last Sunday cos he didnt get on the ball enough. I know that it was his first start, but there is no way that odegaard got on the ball or was as pro-active in the position as smith-rowe had been.
Wenger was a master at doing this type of shit - wenger used to try to strengthen positions that we were ok in, and ignored positions that we were desperately weak in, and arteta is doing the same.
