A bad break

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR VIEWS -

Like most foot­ball fans I have come to loathe the in­ter­na­tional break.In­stead of get­ting our Tues­day night/Saturday af­ter­noon fix of an­tic­i­pa­tion, as­pi­ra­tion and (usu­ally) de­fla­tion we get a dull onesided kick­about with Pre­mier League squad play­ers... who is Harry Winks? Al­though no­body be­lieves me, I en­joyed my team Leeds United’s stay in League 1 not least be­cause there were no in­ter­na­tional breaks.

I’m sure Posh fans were gut­ted their team had no game last week­end. The rea­son be­ing their op­po­nents hadthree play­ers se­lected for in­ter­na­tional duty and there­fore had the op­tion to call the game off. So be­cause Charl­ton had one North­ern Ire­land player and, wait for it, two lads in the Eng­land u20 squad, when Saturday came Posh fans had to go shop­ping, or play with the kids!

The id­iots who run foot­ball will never ruin the beau­ti­ful game, but my gosh , it won’t be for the want of try­ing.
