Ah. That age-old question again. As I tell the hard-nosed journalists on FM every time they ask me “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” It would be extremely weird to not have football around the holidays. There are some great points in this piece but there are other factors to consider when talking about the quality of the Premier League etc. The fixture list plays a part but it’s not a major reason.
They could probably do away with FA Cup replays though.
