You’d think the opportunity to watch footballers representing their country, at what should be the highest level of the game, would be a tantalising prospect.
It is not.
People have got used to their weekly instalment of Premier League football you see – like a much-loved TV series.
Cheltenham = Over,
Six Nations = Over
Football = International break.

Furthermore, with over four million players on the Premier League’s fantasy football league alone, the international break does not offer a similar alternative.

However, not everyone is so hostile to the break – it helps if you’ve had a few good results…
The best thing about sending Arsenal 6th yesterday, is that it's now the international break.

… meanwhile, the break doesn’t just apply to English football.

We suspect being 13 points clear makes the brief hiatus a little easier to swallow.
