    I had been wondering about the managers, they all seem to have abandoned the elbow or even fist bump and are all back to hugs and hanging onto each other for a quick chat for the past while.
    This is PURE conjecture from me, but given how transmittable Omicron is, surely they should be avoiding physical contact with people who are definitely not in their social or working groups.
    The "old" variant was supposedly 15mins within 6 feet was deemed the danger zone/time, but again given how quick this one moves, it could be 30 seconds - nobody actually knows

    Now just for a bit of flippancy - I didnt think Covid would be able to latch onto Sean Dyche, thought he's roll up his manly sleeves and growl at it and be grand.

    Egypt have delayed their departure for the Africa Cup of Nations and were forced to cancel training after coronavirus cases were reported in their camp.

    The Pharaohs, who have won the competition a record seven times, were due to depart on Friday but will now fly to Cameroon on Saturday.

    "Unprecedented times. The more the situation becomes difficult, the more we stay together and strong," coach Carlos Queiroz tweeted.

    The Nations Cup starts on Sunday, with Egypt facing Nigeria in their first Group D match on Tuesday (16:00 GMT) - a game which will be televised by the BBC in the UK.

    The number of cases and identities of those who have tested positive have not been disclosed.

    "Better we stand together and focus on what we need to do to meet the challenges," Queiroz's message added.

    "Dear Friends and Team Mates, we all pray for your health, wishing fast recovery and return to our Team."

    Egypt are the latest side to be affected by coronavirus cases before the tournament, with Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang among two positive lateral flow tests tests in the Gabon squad on Thursday.

    Guinea were forced to leave behind defender Mikael Dyrestam, midfielder Morlaye Sylla and striker Seydouba Soumah at their training base in Rwanda.

    Cape Verde and debutants The Gambia have been hit by several positive tests this week, while Tunisia have also reported cases from their pre-tournament camp.

    Anyone else left wondering why, with the cancelling of games, the criteria for getting a match called off is not having 13 players plus a keeper.

    Why does it seems that injuries and AFCON absentees are being taken into account? They never have been at any other time, you had to deal with injuries and international callups as a matter of course. Obviously the times are not "normal".....or are they? While nobody has flat out said it, it looks like we will have to live with Covid being a part of everyday life indefinitely. So will football become a game of "we play, numerous conditions allowing" or will it fall in line with the rest of society and realise at some point, life must continue in as normal and safe a condition as is possible.

    Getting back to the 3 pronged reasoning that PL clubs seem to be able to use to call off games, I Wouldve thought that the proper way of doing it would be solely on Covid cases as its the only one of the 3 that at the start of the season you wouldnt be able to plan ahead for.
    Another way, and I'm loathe to even suggest this one as it would benefit City and Chelsea no end - increase the squad numbers

    Wondering like this is what happens btw when youre stuck in the house looking at a computer screen

    Aul Ralph endearing himself to Utd fans this morning by telling them he wants to help Pogba get himself a contravt elsewhere :) and thinking Sancho was 3 years older than he actually is

    It's more physical, it's more pressure, although he also played for one of the biggest clubs in Germany, in Dortmund, but I think in total, the whole league, the whole competition is more physical and the level of expectation is higher.

    "When he came to Borussia Dortmund as a young player, he was only 18. Now he's 23, 24, playing for one of the biggest clubs in the world.

    On Pogba

    Pogba set to return from injury in February; Ralf Rangnick: "He wants to show the whole world what kind of player he can be, even if it's for only showing up for a new contract elsewhere, he will be highly motivated to do that"
