Lawyer speaking about Leeds United and West Brom...

Speaking to Sky Sports, lawyer Richard Cramer said: “Get the games going in April and I think we should be alright. But if we go through to May or June then I think it's almost inevitable that, it's almost the equivalent of what happened in the world wars, the season just has to be cancelled. Then we start all over again, which is obviously devastating for the likes of Leeds United and West Brom, both those clubs are on the verge of promotion. It's not a great thought, but they'll just have to abide by what the majority say and what decision is made by the board of directors.”
