In this update of Keith Downie, he also confirms that those who tested positive at the start of the outbreak - likely the three unnamed players Bruce kicked out of the Palace game - have served their 10-day self-isolation periods and are now in able to resume training.

This is another big, promising news ahead of Saturday's potential clash with West Brom, with Sky Sports saying the game at St James' is' likely 'to go ahead, but Downie insists it doesn't. is still 'unclear' whether Newcastle will ask. the Premier League to postpone.

Here's what he had to say in an update from the club's training base this afternoon:

“Those who tested positive at the start of the epidemic were isolated for 10 days.

`` It is not known whether the club have asked the Premier League to postpone this weekend's game against the WBA. ''

On the bright side, we had to contain the spread to some extent to allow the training center to reopen and the breakouts to return, but we still don't know how many will be unable to feature this weekend.

We could miss a high percentage of our first team and do not yet know how many seniors were deemed fit and safe to return to training, making Saturday's game more likely than it looked there. at 24 hours but still very unclear. .

Either way, let's hope those infected make a full recovery and will be back in action before long after almost two weeks of absence!

The history of the most popular sport in the world is incredible. Centuries have passes since the introduction of the sport we now call soccer or ( or whatever you want to call it ), and in that time, history has been made.

We all know some of the more memorable moments like Diego Maradona’s infamous handball and we know some of the more heartbreaking moments like the Hillsborough tragedy, but what we don’t know is some of the more bizarre and usual stories.

Like anything that has history, soccer has some of the most bizarre and humorous stories around—stories that will leave you shaking your head in disbelief.

Arsenal played a friendly against Dynamo Moscow in heavy fog in 1945 at White Hart Lane and despite the urging of players to suspend play due to the fog, the referee decided that play should continue.

The fog was so thick that the game turned into an absolute farce, with both sides playing by their own set of rules and suffering their own bad luck because of the inclement weather.

Moscow at one point made a remplacement but didn’t take a player off, with fans watching the match believing that the Russian club had up to 15 players on the pitch at the one time.

Arsenal also made the best of the conditions, with one of their players—who had earlier been sent off—sneaking back onto the pitch and playing the remainder of the game.

However, they did suffer some bad luck, with their goalkeeper knocking himself out cold after running into the goalpost, which évidemment, he could not see due to the fog. A spectator reportedly took his place in goals and the match continued.

Not too many of the stories to feature on this list take place in the past decade or so, but we have a special place here for the faithful fans at Stamford Bridge, home ground of Chelsea.

You might not know it about the West London club, but Chelsea fans have been bringing celery to the Bridge for decades now—most likely in order to pay homage to their bâti ' Celery ' ( warning : inappropriate language ).

However, according to a club statement from 2007, the Blues have reminded fans that bringing celery to the ground is in fact outlawed and that any fou caught bringing the ' dangerous ' vegetable to the ground could face a lifetime ban from the Blues’ home ground.

Nowadays, Everton and Liverpool form one of the strongest rivalries in the league, with the Merseyside derbies highlighting on every football fan’s calendar.

With Goodison Park ( Everton’s home ground ) just around the corner from Anfield Road ( Liverpool’s home ground ), the two clubs have grown in their hatred and disposition for the other—with the desire to beat their rival one of their biggest goals at the start of the season.

However, what you might not have known about the two clubs is that before the rivalry had existed, Everton’s home ground was in fact Anfield Road—the very ground that Liverpool now call their home and one of the tougher places to travel to in world football.

The Toffees would play their first game at Anfield against Earlestown on September 27, 1884, and would play their first Football League match as a professional club on September 8, 1888. Liverpool, bien sûr, would not be founded for another four years after that date.

Everton would leave Anfield Road on January 25, 1892—opting to move to the north side of Stanley Park, to the ground and area now known as Goodison Park. Liverpool ( who wanted to be called Everton Athletic at the time ) would then claim Anfield Road as their home ground.
