Good Morning. It's Thursday 4th June, and here are the latest headlines from Elland Road...
EFL - The show must go on
The EFL have reiterated that the season will restart on June 20, despite growing opposition. The statement comes in light of nine positive Covid 19 tests results from six clubs (one of which has been revealed to come from Sheffield Wednesday). The Individuals have been told they must now self-isolate and may only return to training grounds once they have tested negative.
What about the the colleagues of the Covid 9, especially as full contact has been in force since the begining of the week. In Germany, the entire Dynamo Dresden team were placed in a two-week quarantine following two positive coronavirus tests among the players. The EFL have agreed to remove the first midweek game, so only 2 games in week 1, not 3. The Season is set to finish on 21/22 July with the play-off final in early August.
Warnock - Leeds fans deserve it for all what they have taken
Neil Warnock has backed Leeds to win automatic promotion back to the Premier League. The outspoken veteran Manager was having his say on Talksport recently. The 71yo was quoted as saying...
I think Leeds fans are hoping they just abandon the season now and they can have promotion. I think that would have been the best thing. It is an amazing club Leeds - and they will fill the stadium in the top flight. I hope them two go back up, I think Leeds fans deserve it for all what they have taken. And I like West Brom as well so I hope those two can make it. And then it’s anybody’s.
But the only thing about Leeds, the crowd, you know what it’s like, it’s so nervous near the end and he [Marcelo Bielsa] doesn’t seem to have a Plan B. I think he’s in a good position this year, I don’t think there’s a third team going to push any of them really.
I see them two as probably the best two – and I don’t really see them as head and shoulders above everybody else. So it’s up to them to miss out definitely because it’s in their hands now.
Does Bielsa have no Paln B? Did Warnock even have a Plan A?
Should the remainder of the season be finished?
Following news of the latest Covid 19 tests that saw nine players or staff from six clubs test positive, is it time to draw a line in the sand and conclude the season? We've heard growing support in recent days from fellow Championship clubs that the season should be scrapped. Many of these teams are only looking for an escape route to avoid relegation, and would be fighting tooth and nail for special dispensation why their team should be spared! Is it too dangerous to restart the season in three weeks?
