'Stop talking and start playing' – Exclusive: Pundit delivers strong message to Leeds rivals
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’s time for teams to stop talking and start playing, with the Championship set to return a week on Sunday.
Teams like Hull – in danger of relegation – were looking to get the season ended early, and some Premier League sides have been trying to get promotion blocked if the Championship has to curtail
It looks like they’ve all been unsuccessful and it looks like the season will get concluded on the pitch.

“Decisions have been made, we’ve been calling for them, let’s get back on the pitch and play some football.
“I think it’s just important now that we get on with it. Let’s get back to what everyone enjoys doing and fans enjoy watching.
“This is a once-in-a-lifetime event hopefully. It’s not ideal for anyone but this isn’t the norm and everyone has to get on with it. It’s making the best of a bad situation.
“I think Leeds have held their counsel brilliantly throughout the whole lockdown. They’ve been in a really strong position, whether the league was going to restart or get decided on points-per-game.
“Angus Kinnear has said a couple of things that have been really sensible and the way they’ve been through this has been admirable.
“By the time the season starts it looks like there will be a clean bill of health hopefully and I’d expect Leeds to go on and win promotion.”
Things have worked out brilliantly for Leeds so far.
The Premier League and the Championship will play out on the pitch. Three teams will get relegated and three teams will be promoted.
We’d put money on Leeds being one of them.
