Don't see the point personally and it'd be past the really congested festive period anyway.As for the national team's prospects, England don't succeed because the players are shit, not because they played 2 games in a week in February. Added to the fact that there's generally more of an appetite for bringing in foreign players than persevering with developing home-grown youngsters. Plus, British players seem reluctant to try their hand abroad - although there are probably more now - so struggle for meaningful game time.
I found this an interesting article, about player minutes this last season:https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44360116Some choice quotes:I'm totally for the winter break, especially as the premier league is more physically intensive and the weather colder, which is likely to impact players more. However it seems to be a myth that English players play more than our European cousins.
FA Cup fading more and more into the background.
However, its ONE weekend when the weather is rarely very........................ wintry. This a break for champions league teams... nothing else.
