What a fooking farce
« on: September 22, 2021, 20:34:08 »
The Premier League has agreed to break during next season after the weekend of November 12 to incorporate the Qatar 2022 World Cup, before resuming fixtures again on Boxing Day, Sky Sports News understands.

Players will have a week of preparations with their national teams before heading out to the tournament in the Middle East, and only eight days to recover in time for the league's resumption should they reach the final on December 18.

Qatar paid, now they want their pound of flesh. UEFA officials are minted. Are the two connected?

I read before that there will be a seven week break for the tournament and the league will start a week earlier and finish a week later. So the lads are going to be playing every midweek and possibly twice in midweek then.

See Wenger is touting world cup every two years, FIFA officials obviously dont have enough super yachts, swiss bank accounts and villas/ski lodges.
