The one big topic of talk for Leeds United fans at this moment in time is simply, what will the EFL decide to do when it comes to completing the 2019/20 Championship campaign.

We’re not the only club with question marks surrounding us, but with plenty saying the only fair outcome is to get past the initial worries of the Coronavirus and then simply restart the season from where we left off, managing director Angus Kinnear recently confirmed that this option was the only one the club would tolerate.

With other options being to ‘null and void’ the year, or make promotion and relegation decisions based on where clubs are now, that obviously leads to a host of complications for other clubs that you wouldn’t think would be acceptable either.

Which Option Is Acceptable To You?

Finish The Season Regardless Of The Delay

Speaking to the Official Site this week to update fans on what the club are doing at the current time to combat the virus and ensure staff/players are safe, Kinnear also made it clear that whatever delay was required, the only option was to complete the league to ensure the integrity of promotions and relegations were maintained.

“I think the broad principle is that you maintain the integrity of the competitions and when the time comes and it is safe to do so, you finish the leagues. I think everybody is starting to feel this is the right thing to do and it is certainly our opinion, we think it maintains the integrity of the Football League pyramid and the competitions. We would like our supporters to be able to witness the rest of the season with us and by playing the games, it also helps the clubs financially, particularly further down the pyramid.”

Plenty across football as a whole will agree with his words here as any other outcome would be laughable.
