Leeds United: Fans flock to Phil Hay’s tweet about Championship restart - Leeds United

Phil Hay has shared an investigation by The Athletic on the concerns of people involved in football about the implications of restarting the season in a matter of weeks. 

According to a report by some of the outlet’s top reporters, including the likes of David Ornstein and Laurie Whitwell, players and staff all across the country are scared and frustrated by the British government’s plans to bring the game back “as soon as possible.”

Who was Leeds United's first £100k transfer signing?

Earlier this week, the culture secretary Oliver Dowden unveiled a scheme to restore the sport dubbed ‘Project Restart,’ which involves clubs working around the clock with medical and scientific experts on finishing the English leagues behind closed doors, for the time being at least.

However, a number of unnamed sources have raised concerns about player welfare and public safety, whilst others pointed out the ramifications of boardrooms missing out on lucrative television deals.

Prior to the nationwide lockdown, Marcelo Bielsa’s Whites sat at the top of the Championship table, with a healthy seven-point-lead over the playoff places, and it is in Andrea Radrizzani’s best interests to see the league resume as quickly as possible in order for Bielsa’s side to achieve promotion to the Premier League.

Naturally, loads of Leeds fans flocked to the journalist’s latest tweet, with one fan asking “why can they not finish this season” in January or February?
