Is ANYBODY actually happy that the international break is upon us?

By Max McLean

The Premier League has gone into hibernation for a couple of weeks.

After a classic weekend of Premier League football, including 28 goals, upsets and more, a two-week break for international football seems to be exactly what the doctor didn’t order.

You’d think the opportunity to watch footballers representing their country, at what should be the highest level of the game, would be a tantalising prospect.

It is not.

People have got used to their weekly instalment of Premier League football you see – like a much-loved TV series.

Furthermore, with over four million players on the Premier League’s fantasy football league alone, the international break does not offer a similar alternative.

However, not everyone is so hostile to the break – it helps if you’ve had a few good results…

… meanwhile, the break doesn’t just apply to English football.

We suspect being 13 points clear makes the brief hiatus a little easier to swallow.
