The PL should be cut to 19 teams as well. All local Cup games should go to extra time and penalties, not replays. It's worth a shot; if England do no better at subsequent tournaments, then they can change back. Of course the TV companies will never agree.
Spain don't have a winter break any more
Approximately one third of players in the PL are British, so if we have a winter break that's going to help the foreign countries more.Good thinking Batman.
I don't know if its the best or not but let's look at this critically, some years ago English teams played without winter break and performed well and so I'd like to ask if the no winter break is making English teams less competitive in Europe or will make teams competitive if they had a winter break?
I truly hope so Roy!! The lack of a winter break places English teams at a disadvantage, just look at tomorrows CL final, need I say more?
If there's a winter break there will be more congestion in the remaining weeks Roy
Surely if Roy rovers read these comments he would be a better manager!..When England's tournament ends in tears, I will turn to the comments section for a cheer up..Winter break? Football played at Xmas is history, world war 1.. Culture it is and it's our culture that will remain, far longer than any Roy..He not know how ozil and his mates won the World Cup? They were playing Boxing Day!
I would love to believe the FA and Prem League would do this for the betterment of the national team but you know they won't give up the money for that (noble) cause.... probably be playing games around the world to "increase the global brand"
Hope the winter break isn't phased out. The festive fixtures are what english football is all about. Premier League players and managers shouldn't be complaining whatsoever.
Scotland are having a Summer Break this year = trail blazers as usual.
142. David GreenJust play all games indoors with air con===Brilliant idea.Good practice for the Qatar 2022 World Cup
I'd have more sympathy if I didn't know that clubs would spend the time off taking their players overseas for friendly matches. They might even revive the idea of the '39th game' and play it during this period.
@140Yes, they can play Boxing Day and all that. Give them a break first 10/15 days of Jan.I bet there will be better results for all the home nations in the CL, Euros and WC's.
Another way to cut revenue for smaller clubs - well done.With Climate Change, we do not have severe winters, so could play 2 months on, one month off throughout the year and NOBODY would get stale and need a 3 month rest in the summer.Oh sorry, they don't want to play when it's warm either.Just play all games indoors with air con, then they will feel as at home as in their fancy cars.
Play less matches.Pay more pounds.What a world these guys live in.
