Lots of Leeds United fans have been reacting on social media after the English Football League announced that their ‘primary objective’ was to resume the 2019/20 season when possible.

Play is currently on ice until, at least, April 30 after the EFL further postponed all fixtures due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which has sparked questions around the country over how the current campaign will finish or if it even can, though the term has been indefinitely extended in order to play the full contingent of fixtures

Declaring the season null and void would have led to dire consequences for team’s challenging for promotion or save those fighting relegation, while simply extending the term is no easy fix with some contracts expiring on June 30 and the uncertainty over when it will be safe to play again.
