Piers Morgan and Gary Neville both criticised the FA’s decision to postpone football games this weekend.

Gary Neville concurs with Piers Morgan over the postponement of the Leeds-Nottingham Forest game.
Gary Neville, a pundit for Sky Sports and a former Manchester United defender, has joined Piers Morgan in advocating for the continuation of sports activities despite this weekend’s postponements.
The FA postponed all levels of football as other sports continued this weekend in the wake of Queen Elizabeth II’s passing. Leeds was scheduled to play Forest on Monday night.
Games against Fulham and Manchester United are still uncertain as the nation enters a period of sorrow, but now that the Queen’s funeral has been confirmed as a bank holiday, both are likely to be played.
Morgan questioned the postponements on Twitter after they were made. The Queen liked sports, and he said on Twitter that it would be wonderful to witness or hear large people singing the National Anthem to Her Majesty, as West Ham supporters did so admirably (on Thursday) night.

Neville jumped in to support Morgan’s assertions. I agree Piers. Sport can display the respect the Queen deserves better than most.

In comparison to previous season, Leeds United’s 2022/23 campaign has gone very well; whereas they never advanced higher than 15th, Jesse Marsch’s team is presently ninth after six games.
They have eight points so far this season thanks to victories against Wolverhampton Wanderers and Chelsea and draws with Everton and Southampton, but they may have to wait up to a month before playing again after Monday’s game against Nottingham Forest was postponed.
Nevertheless, many experts projected that the Whites would have a poor season overall and a far worse start to the season than they actually had. Here are some of their comments:
Manchester United vs Leeds United could get green light as Queen’s funeral detail confirmed
Due to the confirmation that the day of Queen Elizabeth II’s burial will be observed as a national holiday, Leeds United’s match against Manchester United on Sunday may be postponed till the following weekend. Following The Queen’s passing on Thursday at the age of 96, all football games in the Premier League and EFL for the days of September 9–11 were postponed.
The Premier League might resume play on Friday despite some rumours suggesting that next weekend’s games may also be in danger because of The Queen’s funeral, which is scheduled for Monday, September 19. King Charles III said that the burial would be observed by a national holiday, confirming that it would most likely fall on a Monday.
Sunday’s potential date for the funeral would have conflicted with Leeds’ trip to Old Trafford. There is a greater likelihood that the games will be played over the weekend because the dates of the two tournaments do not coincide.
