  • Hate international breaks---

    Dunno about anybody else, but I hate these international breaks throughout the season, going to be even worse this year with this ridiculous world cup!!
    I get that this time is valuable to the managers and coaches to work on teams and get injured players back, but from a supporters view it just fragments the season so much!! Don't get me wrong, I love my country and will always support the national team, but who ever had the mindset, country and club, nobody, it's always club and country. Am I wrong?

          Well Southgate has achieved as much for England results wise as any previous manager bar Alf Ramsey.

          Euro Final and World Cup Semis in quick time.

          Last couple results dodgy and half nation now on his back. Nations league a pointless experience.

          International break can come at wrong or right times for clubs. This year with World Cup also, it changes football in the leagues big time.

          So far we have benefitted,in that Lyndon has improve his own particular profile but its a stop start season especially this year.

          C'est la vie !!!

            Its just more games for Gareth Bale to get injured in.

            I'm sure you all share my concern.

              It sucks, i usually dont watch any of the internationals to many unimportant games.
              Uefa nations leauge is killing the interest.

                There's too much football. League should be 18 teams and League Cup duffed too.

                The programme of domestic football should easily fit into a period from Late August to Late April with barely any need for a midweek programme of games. Obviously TV will create some floodlit games for those who feel we have to have some.

                I reckon in the above model it'd be possible to have smaller international breaks - have a break from Wednesday to Tuesday kind of thing.

                Didn't Liverpool play 63 games last season? Absolutely ridiculous and unsustainable - no wonder their squad look like zombies this season and are off the pace.

                  Have next to no interest in international games, just gets in the way of domestic football. Too much about the money these days.

                        abs me old mate, two games a week, super fit athletes, 5 substitutes and a 1,000,000 in your back pocket every month. i'd play in bare feet on broken glass for that.
                        did'nt our great team in 75/76 play 50 odd games that season with about 14 players, one sub.

                          International games were always played midweek, sandwiched between two Saturdays games, like has been said, these fellas are supposed to be athletes, the best of everything, diet, training physios, most of the old boys got by with a good dollop of lineament, half a dozen pints, and twenty cigs!! Still managed to play for 7 or 8 months of the year, for peanuts compared to what they get nowadays

                              Players arent interested in these meaningless games and only aim is to get through them uninjured.

                              I never watch them even on free TV
