@JuceeRob: Speedy recovery for those who have it!

@AndyFraser86: Postpone until February when Kalvin is back.

@BotheredNick: Hope all of those infected are ok and it’s not serious. Obvious potential benefit of getting some injuries healed.

@Dave_LeedsUtd: I'd normally be disappointed with this because the Boxing Day fixture is probably the second best after opening day, but this year it’s a welcome relief that the game is off.

@LesterJHurst: The right decision, should have been done earlier - let’s all enjoy the rest like the rest of the league. Safety first of course - stay safe and well all.

@MellorFootball: We’ll call it a draw and save everyone the petrol.

@Dan_LUFC_Winter: Kind of wanted this fixture out of the way cause we're unlikely to get anything with a fully fit squad anyway.

@L33ds_Un1t3d: Great stuff. Won’t have to watch us get shafted and ruin Christmas. Also might have a couple of players back fit.

@Briggsy0104: Can’t lose if you don’t play. Get the injured players back and go again! Merry Christmas you filthy animals!!!

@LUFCJamie1919: Hope the players and staff affected are ok, and are better soon.

@AdairFTB: Null and void the season and take last season’s standing. It’s the right thing to do for the sake of the country.

@AD36421360: Disappointed? It's a godsend. We've been woefully bad.

@LeedsThat: In all seriousness, hope anyone who has it gets better soon.

@Kaldhillon84: Wishing everyone who is infected a speedy recovery.

@SSquire1990: I can honestly say I am not disappointed. Gives us time to get some players back to fitness!!
