Responding to a tweet by Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Graham Smyth, plenty of Leeds United fans have been in hysterics over his story about spotting a pheasant in his driveway – drawing particular attention to the emerged wildlife following the country’s lockdown.
In response to recent events, the EFL and Premier League have opted to suspend all footballing action until an estimated return date of April 30th – with the country also going into lockdown.
The FA also announced yesterday that all non-league divisions below the National League North and South have been voided, with the lockdown seemingly continuing to attract more measures from officials.
Journalist Smyth, commenting on the current situation, explained how this could lead to the emergence of more wildlife throughout the streets of Britain – with supporters since going on to make Leeds United and football related jokes in response. One fan even suggested that Smyth could discover a ‘proven goalscorer‘ on his driveway at this rate.
Here’s what they had to say on Twitter…
You might discover a proven goal scorer soon.

Careful. The presence of wolves & bears is also likely to attract a wild, untamed Nigel Pearson onto your drive.😱
