As said above, it's understandable, idiotic thing to do mid season.

maybe a league restructure in future too. reduce numbr of games, and make maybe the league cup open to teams in championship and leagues below. Majority of prem teams see it as a mickey mouse cup anyway. Might keep international players more fresh too

Can see some top clubs boycotting the the 2022 world cup, in a way I hope they do just to teach FIFA a lesson about being completely inept, inadequate and creating this whole farce in the first place.

Platini is a pain but he is a much straighter arrow than Blatter. Definitely the better of the two

True, but hopefully by then there will be a credible rival

What happens if England don't qualify for this world cup?? Do they expect us to have no PremierLeague for a month or two??? As if thats going to happen. When it comes down to Club v Country there is always only one winner.

How do players contracts work? Do you think clubs could stop their players playing for their nations?
