When I got back from the States and read about the Premier League plan to play a thirty ninth match abroad I genuinely thought it was a wind-up. Incredibly, it wasn’t.
While I generally applaud blue sky thinking I just can’t see how this would work. Imagine you are the third from bottom club and your defeat against Man U in the 39th match relegates you, while the fourth from bottom’s match is against the bottom side and they win it!
I suspect my own negative views are reflected by the readers of this blog!
One thing I would like to see, though, is several of the Scottish teams playing in the English leagues.
