Wolverhampton Wanderers fans were left feeling saddened after professional football was postponed further amid recent events.
The sport was initially suspended until the 3rd of April at the earliest, which was confirmed by a statement put out on the 13th of March (via The FA). However, another update has emerged and the return has been put back until at least the 30th of April (via BBC). It’s also emerged that the usual 1st of June cut off date has been extended indefinitely due to the Pandemic.
One fan called the update ‘telling’.
The wording used in the statement points towards this season being finished at some point.
FA’s agreement on extending season finish indefinitely beyond 1 June pretty telling. https://t.co/lJDeK7kSCT

Supporters were left unhappy with the new update on when the top division will restart as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets:
