There are only 4, and the 4th is the EFL Trophy. So I'd imagine the League Cup is in most people's top 3!
Yeah, I was joking. I probably prefer it to the FA Cup these days though. Probably because it's the only time I've been to see us in a final and lift a trophy.

Woolwich have a nice sort of break, they have two Europa League ties but nothing else between now and the 1st of March when they play City.

So the possibility of a break is rearing it’s head again.

I’m not sure how I feel about this. I’m pretty sure the bug clubs would just book friendlies in America and The Far East so it wouldn’t actually be a break. The idea in principle is good though, but then I think it would need to be coupled with dropping two clubs from the Prem and having an 18 Team League.
Agree with you. They still play matches during this break so I don't see the point of changing the league setup. We've manage to go on for many seasons now without a winter break.
