BREAKING: Major Premier League changes revealed ahead of the 2019/20 season

Some big news from the Times this morning, who reveal that the Football Association has now ‘agreed in principle’ to introduce a winter break to the Premier League ahead of the 2019/2020 campaign.

As we all know too well, the festive period is a busy period as it is, however football at thIS time of year is just as hectic.

For example, in the 24 days between our home game to Leicester on December 9th and the trip to Stoke on New Year’s Day, we played 7 games – averaging almost a game every 3 days across a 3 and a half week spell.

With this in mind, several top Premier League managers such as Guardiola, Klopp and Mourinho have admitted to being in favour of a winter break (with Benitez also claimed to be a fan of the idea) and it seems they could be set to get their wish.

As stated in the Times, the FA is now believed to have reached an agreement in principle with both the Premier League and the EFL for an annual two-week break’, with it scheduled to begin from 2019/2020 onwards – the season after next.

What do you make of this folks? Are you in favour?
