Fulham - What If (3)!

Fulham - What If (3)!

I can`t help but feel I`m on a roll here.

I`ve even surprised myself with a third article in three days; it must be all that cajoling by Putney that`s psyched me up!

Already this week I`ve proposed two hypothetical scenarios, the first went down well but the second got a mixed response so I`m damned if I know how this one will be received.

Looking out of the window, watching the rain lashing down and the wind howling has made me question one of those features that many believe are part and parcel of football - playing in all weathers.

Now, throughout the years, I`ve stood on many a terrace when it`s been lashing it down with rain, I`ve stood there hands cupped around a hot drink trying to thaw my fingers out and never once did I even contemplate change.

But, as I get older I can`t help wondering if we`re missing a trick here, I can`t help thinking if our game should be adapting to fit in with all this climate change.

Therefore, I`d like to know, What If (3) proposals were put in place to adopt a winter break or to shift the season to cover the summer months, would you be in favour or have I eaten one too many magic mushrooms (again)?

here's the thing with that... we have this sort of schedule in the states with our professional league, and it runs into serious problems during the international breaks and the world cup and confederations cup and the like... unfortunate as it is, unless the entire world culture shifts so that everyone is also playing in the new system, it will be incredibly hard to sort out the scheduling conflicts that would be caused... maybe the seater stadiums should be fit with heated seats? also, do we still not have a method of battling a frozen pitch?

most clubs have undersoil heating to prevent frosty pitches - we don't?

I believe it is a pre-requisite these day if you get promoted!
