As long as I can recall, the clamour has been there for the top-tier of English football to implement a winter break, just as they do so on the continent.
Yesterday, it was announced that from the 2019 / 2020 season, the Premier League will, indeed, have a winter break.
The plan is for a staggered break to be introduced in February.
In order to accommodate the break, the plan is to play five matches on the first weekend and five the following weekend.
It has also been agreed that the 5th round of the FA Cup will be moved to midweek and that replays will be scrapped at that stage of the competition.
Those that run the game are backing their plans with such bold statements as – ‘a significant moment for English football’ and that it ‘will greatly benefit club and country’.
But what do you, the Spurs faithful think of the decision?
Is it something you applaud or are you just a little wary of the season being interrupted by yet another break?
