'All looks good for Leeds' – Exclusive: Pundit reacts as key detail emerges ahead of PL meeting

We’re delighted to welcome former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at Leeds United…

Paul Robinson has said that “it all looks good for Leeds” as the Premier League prepare to meet on Monday morning. 

There are rebel clubs who are against playing at neutral venues and want relegation taken off the table if they’re to vote for Project Restart.

However, it was reported by the Times that the FA would veto any attempt to have relegation taken off the table if the season was abandoned.

The FA has special powers of veto over promotion and relegation from the Premier League.

Talking exclusively to MOT Leeds News, Robinson reacted to news of the FA’s potential veto saying, “It all looks good for Leeds at the moment.

“The only scenario that meant Leeds wouldn’t get promoted was if everything’s scrapped and it looks like even that’s not an option anymore.

“Even if the Championship is scrapped it looks like Leeds will be going up.

“Championship sides have already played 37 games, just one less than an entire Premier League season.

“Leeds and West Brom have been clearly at the top all season and deserve to go up. It’s then just a question of how you decide the play-off teams, if there’s a third team to be promoted at all.

“Ahead of Monday’s meeting it really looks like everything is in Leeds’ favour.”

Reports that certain clubs wanted relegation taken off the table were swiftly met by both the Premier League and the FA who both knocked the suggestion back.

It’s reportedly not even on the agenda for today.

Sporting integrity is key and the bottom clubs having nothing left to play for would seriously impact the battle for European places at the top.

If leagues are abandoned then we expect the final positions to be decided on a weighted points-per-game model and for Leeds to be promoted.
