Just got this (http://www.premierleague.com/page/Headlines/0,,12306~1235581,00.html) off their official site.

In case the link doesn't work, the full URL is:

(I can't seem to copy their words, to post here, so your just going to have to go to their site.)

Note: Arsenal are top of the table, and will be staying there!! :)

Personally, I think it's a good idea, as long as the players don't get worn out: but it'll be hard with all fixing the matches with the stadiums etc. Plus, it's neutral territory, (e.g the Champion's League final) meaning fairer games; but I'm sure the team the popular teams like Arsenal, Man Utd, will have an edge cause they have the fan's support.

Your thoughts? (Might add a poll later on - same thread though)

Since i live in the USA, i wouldn't mind a couple EPL matches here in Texas... but I don't think the managers there like it.

Ouch, pretty harsh to some players don't you guys think?
I mean like it would be tiresome to players and make them prone to more injuries due to their tired-ness.

lol that was months ago.

The head of FIFA and UEFA have shot it out the water, we fans don't want it, the managers don't want it, the players don't want it... even the different Countries said they didn't want it (Asia and America anyway).

Even Scudamore had pretty much admitted it's all over for his plans. It's a good thing I think.
