Just 39 days to go now, starting to get excited about all the top class football we are going to see, and some England matches.
To start the discussion off, just saw this on the BBC,
and can't help but think that a top manager and team would look at that potential problem and try and do something about it, rather than just come out with "You sign up for the World Cup as it's going to be. It's not our job to keep them occupied."
Maybe he should face up to the fact that it his is job to make sure the team turn up for each game in the best physical and mental state possible, which also includes managing their downtime.
