I've ommitted Belgium, Scotland, Colombia etc as they aren't traditionally what I would PERSONALLY consider top tier countries, so if Hamish McTwatface wants to get shirty...save it.

World Champions in 1967.

I hate International breaks as well, but at least this one gives some of our squad time to rest and recuperate.

Was thinking the same earlier. Think this break has come at a good time with a couple of our injuries, plus it's a chance for the players and management team to recharge ahead of one final push.

I hate the breaks they are so boring , but for us this one is welcomed . Be good if Ramsey was back for the wolves game .

I feel like I need a bit of a breather myself, never mind the players. Tense old times having something to play for.

For us it’s a shame to see Luiz / Konsa called up…great for them but 2 weeks rest would have done them good…Ollie should get a break as the idiot will pick Kane to increase his record & he went out on a limb to defend Toney so will pick him over Ollie

Even for the ones called up, I think the change of environment for 10 days might do them good, plus some of them won't be playing full games as they do with Villa. Brasil's games are in London and Madrid so at least Dougie won't have much travel.

If Konsa and Ollie don't start but Dougie does then I cant be sure who I'll be cheering for. That's if I watch at all, mind.

I shall take an interest in the games where we have players but couldn't give two fucks otherwise.

I'm really looking forward to the Championships in the Summer as well because I don't care for any team so I can just enjoy the football.

Don’t mind it this time. We had a fairly positive weekend in terms of results, but I think a break will do us good.

I think Ramsey’s fitness for the Wolves game is pivotal. If he’s available I fancy us to get a win, without him I don’t.

Not that I'll be watching, but that's an easy call.....Brazil
