You just know that if a Spurs England player goes down today and is out into the summer, there will be lots of unironic cries from the same punditry that football authorities are too focused on money and are overplaying players.Never said it was only us. Newcastle, Spurs and Saints have made their own decision how to approach this.
Jurgen could have delayed the break for half the squad, and led a strong side into that match. But his stance is that unless someone says ‘no’, then nothing will change. The FA will continue to piss about with fixtures, and avoid the central issue here - there is too much football putting too much pressure on human bodies and diminishing the product. He has chosen to put himself in the firing line, and take on that fight - something the basic punditariat can’t get their thick heads round. A thick cunt like Alan Shearer will be first to moan when a visibly knackered England eleven get their arses handed to them in the summer by the first quality team they face. But won’t accept that fitness is a key part of that.
As for when to schedule it, that’s for the FA to sort out with the Premier League, preferable at the start of the season.
