Reports have suggested that Ligue 1 may be decided by how the table looked at the midway point in the season, which has drawn a mixed reaction from Leeds United fans.
The French Prime Minister announced yesterday that no sporting events could take place until September, effectively bringing an end to the 2019/20 Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 seasons.
According to RMC Sport (via ESPN), one of the proposals that they’re considering to determine the final league position in Ligue 1 is using the standings at the half-way point at the season when all sides had played each other once.
If that same approach were to be taken in the Championship, it would mean West Bromwich Albion were named champions, while Leeds United finished second.
That would likely still see the Whites promoted but it would mean they surrender their current place at the top of the Championship.
Marcelo Bielsa’s side are one point ahead of the Baggies with nine games remaining and should the EFL opt for this method, you’d imagine they may feel some frustration at seeing the title ripped away from them.
Has Kalvin Phillips done these 12 things at Leeds United? Have a go now!
The suggestion has drawn a mixed response from the Elland Road faithful, with some fans just happy that it would mean the Whites were promoted and others frustrated.

This would be a rubbish way of doing it. https://t.co/dyv9451hyW

Yep, considering those who’d played away and those home in those matches, makes it unfair.

I can kind of see the logic to it tbf. Either way it’d be the same result so I’d take it haha
