Don’t you hate it?
It’s Thursday afternoon. In your head you’ve been contemplating the whole week about who will be your captain in your fantasy team. Will it be your Liverpool man Mohamed Salah – The Egyptian King (who should get some goals in the next match against Newcastle); or will it be the in-form money hungry, back-stabbing, judas Raheem Sterling whose Manchester City side play away at Norwich?
You make up your mind, log in to your favourite fantasy website, go to pick team, and Lo and Behold, you realise that there are no EPL games this weekend!?! FFS, we need to wait a full two weeks for the next game!!
The International break is something I detest and have done for many many years.
Instead of watching my Mighty Reds take on Steve Bruce’s Newcastle; the only thing on the fucking TV screen is a snooze fest like Armenia vs Italy, France vs Russia and England vs Bulgaria.
Ok, fair enough, there can be crackers sometimes, like Friday’s match between Germany and Netherlands, but I am one of those guys who doesn’t want to watch a football match worrying about whether Gini Wijnaldum will get injured and miss a match against his old side.
The international break is a curse to Premier League fans like me who, let’s be honest, don’t give a shit if a team like Albania will reach Euro 2020. We just want to watch our side battle it out and see which of the “big 6” teams drops points and who will be top of the table after Gameweek 5.
The sooner the EPL comes back the better. I’m suffering massive withdrawals.
