My main argument is the FA Cup is THE main domestic knockout cup comp.I think the league and the money on offer for finishing in the top 4 dilutes these domestic cups more than anything else. A trophy should be but sadly its not enough reward for clubs compared to the financial windfall of finishing in a UCL spot.
City is the exception not the rule though, with the finacial advantage they have over the rest of us they just have better depth footballers.Yep, it's great to see youth get a chance to stake their claims at their clubs.
Was so inspiring for all the youth winners this season. Ederson, Zinchenko, Laporte, Otamendi, Walker, Silva, Fernandinho, De Bruyne, Sterling, Bernardo Silva & Aguero. Even more youth like Sane, Kompany & Gundogan got to play a bit. Sorry for the other youth that didn't get on the park like Foden, Muric but probably felt most sorry for the youth of Mahrez.
Lets take Liverpool for exampleEFL clubs play 46 games a season, PL clubs could play less than that even with a reasonable Cup run in both Cups, how do they clog up the schedule?
Let's take Cardiff for example...Lets take Liverpool for example
Prem 38 games,
CL max 13 games,
FA Cup max 6 games,
League cup max 6 games,
Club world cup max 2 games,
Super cup 1 game,
Community shield 1 game,
7 pre-season friendlies
= max 74 games.
Worst case scenario we'd play about 56 games.
