That is the best point of the lot mate .

It suits them, as they obviously had played the most games .

And that's is truly why we have it

Not really bothered either way. If the clubs think it benefits them then I'm fine with it.

I am curious as to why it's been brought in this season though.

Was it? Fuck.

Memory's always been shite so I'm not worried. 

When did it start? I'm also paranoid it's been brought in to suit one team.

Didn't they want to give the players a rest? Too many games getting played etc.?

Then they go and play friendlies? It also leaves the last month of the season very crowded with games being played midweek to catch up. If a Scottish club was to ever reach the latter stages of the Europa League, they'd be struggling to fit in all the games before the season ends, because I'm fairly sure that there are some league matches  scheduled for midweek, at the same dates as European semifinals.

Yes if teams were actually using it to give their players rest instead of playing pointless matches which defeats the whole purpose. Either just stick to training or just continue with the league.

It's a really good point the clubs just see the pound signs and start arranging friendlies ...so far as congestion goes I wouldn't be surprised if the snow sets in just as they are coming back which would be a real sickener after at least 2 good Saturdays missed

Years ago that would have been paranoia but not any more

Another fine day for a game of football ... nice to see the start of the blizzards are forecast for the team touching down at Glasgow Airport :mutley:

Only 2 rounds of league games are shifted to suit the winter break. Not really going to cause any major congestion.

I think it is a waste of time, it was scrapped before, in part because of some clubs using the break to play friendlies to raise revenue - with other clubs, who weren't/couldn't complaining. I can see this being pulled in a couple of seasons, no real football justification for it.
