The EPL has a schedule for you to watch because the FA has sanctioned them to play as a first division league. It’s not a case of the FA impeding on the EPL, it’s that the EPL has expanded to use every available date not already taken by FIFA, the FA, or the players’ union stipulated time off. Nowhere does it say they have to have a 20 team league with 38 matches, but the EPL has gone that route and is forced into fixture congestion.I mean, if they don’t respect scheduling parameters, it’s a farce. Not sure how you get around that.
“Let’s make a trophy where we Schedule games at times that make it impossible for the best teams to compete. That will be super important to the world at large.”
If it’s about a consolation trophy, then, yeah, who cares?
All the teams have the same ability to focus their resources during the season however they see fit, and if MCFC and LFC are feeling strained, then they can redistribute their spending to raise their rosters’ floor while lowering their ceiling. It’s an either/or proposition- they don’t get to have their cake and eat it too. Them complaining about it is truly a spectacle to see, the Haves unhappy they can’t have everything.
