Premier league to start 8 days (Boxing Day) after World Cup final 2022. Seems a bit unfair for clubs with the majority of their players plays for their country.

Alternatively, one might consider it more unfair that the clubs with the wealthiest owners are able to populate their squads with nothing other than the top international players from the best of the national teams.  I also wouldn't mind betting that the EPL arranges the late December/early January fixtures so as to ensure that none of the 'Big 6' (or is it now 7?) are scheduled to play each other too soon after the world cup has finished.

Dean smith sacked by villa expected to be the new Norwich boss

should  make the game between the two sides in a couple of weeks interesting

Dean Smith: Former Villa boss to sign two and a half year Norwich deal

Terms have been agreed verbally; Norwich to stress that Smith was always their first choice; Smith has impressed Norwich bosses and will now try to lead them away from the bottom of the Premier League table

OK, lets install a salary cap and floor into the league! Oh wait we have to incorporate all of Europe! Can that happen? 

See to me, the top 6-7, would want to play each other first back as both will be depleted! This could be a chance a lower club maybe getting a win when they weren't expecting it?

est Ham defender Angelo Ogbonna looks set to miss the rest of the season after damaging his anterior cruciate ligament.

Ogbonna, 33, will undergo surgery after sustaining the knee injury during their Premier League win against Liverpool.

David Moyes said he expects the Italy centre-back's recovery to take "somewhere around nine months".

"He is going to have surgery, we think surgery will take place over the next couple of days."

Ogbonna was forced off with an eye injury during the first half of their 3-2 victory over the Reds, but later complained of discomfort in his knee.

Moyes added "I don't think there's a quick return from cruciates. I think there is a period which has to be taken and recovery time. So I would probably say yes, I think it will be hard for Angelo to be back this season.

"It's really sad, because he's done a great job for us. He is a great boy, a great team player. He's someone we love having around and more importantly, his performances have been excellent for us. So it's a real sad moment for him and also for us."

With all today’s games on streaming I recommend burnley v spurs it’s been snowing up north and spurs won’t like that being used to the heated pitch and heated toilets and stuff at the house of cheese

Apparently they just canceled it due to "heavy snow" or as we Americans call it "a dusting".

Sunday's Premier League game between Burnley and Tottenham at Turf Moor has been called off due to heavy snow.
