Surely this is what squads are for? Tiredness is a factor in every season, but it's up to clubs to manage it.

Fatigue and tiredness of players is generally a smokescreen to cover up for the deficiencies of managers and Arteta is a perfect example.

Like Wenger before him, he's disingenuous and has no issue with the amount of games until they start losing then it's a huge issue.

An abdication of responsibility and culpability to deflect from their own incompetence. Wankers.

I think PL clubs fans should all unite against this.

I know we have europe but ffs protect the smaller clubs.  They need the revenue bad. I think this decision sucks

It's a dump on the majority of clubs in the football pyramid.

The so called big clubs didn't complain recently when UEFA announced even more games would be played in the Chapions League from next season.

I like how they constantly wobble on about the cup being their prestigious and showpiece event then still have the semi finals at Wembley.

It doesn't help that there's multiple two-week shutdowns for internationals throughout the season.

More games mean more money and There is a battle between FIFA UEFA and the domestic authorities for control of the football calendar.FIFA expanding the WC and the World Club competition UEFA with the Champions League and International competitions.
The domestic cups have no chance. This is where a Government regulator could get involved but donít hold your breath.

EFL clubs not consulted so have quite rightly kicked-off about this!

That's the worst thing about it for me.  I've thought for a while now that replays have become a bit outdated and it was just a matter of time before they were scrapped. 

I think the way it has been done with the EFL clubs seemingly not consulted is the worst part though rather than the decision itself.

This is all about maximising revenue in competitions involving the biggest clubs. Expanded Champions League, World Club Cup and money spinning tours to far flung countries all in the name of promoting brands and taking the TV money.
