A lot of Leeds United fans are not happy with a tweet from Graham Smyth that included a link to a piece on Norwich City.

To kick things off what season is this from?

The piece includes quotes from Norwich’s sporting director Stuart Webber from his interview on Sports’ The Football Show (via Yorkshire Evening Post).

Webber claims that if can’t play the rest of their games, then the Canaries ‘could not accept’ a situation that would see them relegated if Premier League sides finish their matches.

He believes that promotion and relegation have to be settled on the pitch.

This has annoyed many Leeds fans who are furious with Webber’s comments.

Do these comments from Webber anger you?

Yes

No

What do we think?

Norwich are bottom of the Premier League with 21 points – six points off safety at the point the league resumes, meaning they appear likely to be relegated as it stands.

So, this just seems like a desperate attempt to stay in the Premier League for another season.

The EFL remains committed to finishing the Championship season, but has recently pushed back the date for clubs to return to to the 25th of May.

If they can’t finish the season, then the Whites could be promoted on sporting merit, which may anger Norwich, but we don’t think these Leeds fans care too much about that.
