Amid the chaos of coronavirus and the game being postponed for a few weeks, there will remain talk of Leeds, eventually, getting back into the Premier League.
The Whites have had to wait for some time to challenge for the promotion places but this season and last season they’ve shown an extra level of class.
What part of the squad needs the most attention?
The extra wait now, then, might well be worth it at the end of the day, with Jamie Carragher suggesting in his post about coronavirus that both the Whites and West Brom will be on their way up once things resume and that you can’t void the season as some would have you believe:
Inevitable the @premierleague @EFL will be suspended today. You can’t start next season until this one finishes when ever that is. No title winners? Who goes in the @ChampionsLeague next season??Leeds WBA +1 miss out on PL??? 3 clubs in Prem stay up.

Obviously, his main point is that you can’t just stop promotion, relegation and trophies being handed out because there would be a real stink kicked up.
He has his Liverpool ties to consider, too, but imagine the reaction at Leeds if another chance to get into the top flight was taken away.
Aside from the main point, though, it seems as though he thinks that the Whites and the Baggies will be back in the Premier League come next season – whenever that kicks off – and hopefully we can prove him right.
Naturally, too, this break will be seen as a nuisance but it is one that is necessary in terms of the grand scheme of things and hopefully in a couple of weeks we’ll have a brighter picture that allows us to sort things out.
Certainly, you can imagine certain clubs will want the season voided but the fight that the clubs negatively imapcted by that would surely be a huge one.
An intriguing few weeks await.
