6:42 pm
work in principle so i understand it will look to begin in the 2019, 20 205 season and fa cup fifth round will be played as a mid week set of fixtures and there will be no replays, the big question around a winter break is how it would fit into the existing calendar something had to give, it is fa cup replays that have gone and they have been moved to those midweek slots. that will free up space in the calendar and that will allow premier league clu bs and that will allow premier league clubs on a staggered basis, it will not happen at once, all 20 clubs will get a 13 day break injanuary, it will not affect christmas fixtures or the new year fixtures, they will remain sacrosanct and in place but injanuary they will remain sacrosanct and in place but in january this they will remain sacrosanct and in place but injanuary this players will get a break of 13 days. what it shows as well is the fact they were inching towards this comment is not a done deal yet, the announcement of expect will come in the next few weeks once the finer details have
6:43 pm
been agreed but it shows the football authorities in england are working together as never before, a good level of communication. the benefits of it finally are said to benefits of it finally are said to be according to numerous studies good for both club and country, clu bs good for both club and country, clubs benefit because injury prevention rates go up as the move towards the end of the season towards the end of the season towards play—offs and towards cup finals and her country it benefits major tournament years because players have had the rest and the fa hopes that can only be a good thing for england coming into place in twe nty20 for england coming into place in twenty20 just—in—time perhaps for the european championship that summer. time to catch up on some of the days other headlines. there's a boost for next month's tour of yorkshire, after a couple of heavy crashes on the circuit that saw him miss the commonelath games mark cavendish has recovered from rib and ankle injuries and is set to take part will take part in the four day race. magnificent stuff on the boundary,
