    So we have more positive tests. Oh well lets ignore those and carry on with the football.

    Football seems to be above and beyond the rest of us Westhamsteve. Under test, track and trace WE are required to self isolate if we come within 2m of a person who tested ‘positive’. Now players are in ‘contact’ training they are obviously within 2m – face-to-face in many cases. So if a team mates tests positive every player should isolate. Let’s see what happens when the next results are posted. Bet I know. Nothing!
