Loads of Newcastle United fans have reacted to a claim from French government officials to stop the Premier League restarting after it was reported by Le Parisien.
As per the article, the French Prime Minister ended the current Ligue 1 season, with other countries expected to vote on their league’s fates in the coming days.
The President of the French Republic wants other countries to follow suit, including England and the Premier League, to stop the campaign indefinitely. Germany, Italy and Spain have also been urged to cancel their respective domestic leagues.
Indeed, a decision has not yet been made by the Premier League on whether they will cancel the rest of the term, but the pressure of cancellation from other major European leagues in the current climate may persuade them to.
Nevertheless, although everyone’s health remains the top priority, some members of the Toon faithful will perhaps want to see their team play again this season.
These Magpies reacted to the claim on Twitter:
I kinda want the premier league to be cancelled it's better the to void because Liverpool will win the premier league.

As a nation we tend to dislike the French, but I often admire the way they put the interests of the people first, ahead of big business, and protect national interests.
