Premier League clubs want the FA Cup moved to midweek and replays scrapped

first_img There could be a radical shake-up of the football calendar in coming seasons 1 FA Cup replays from the third round onwards could become a thing of the past as Premier League clubs plan a radical shake-up of the football calendar. The competition could also be moved to midweek as top-flight clubs explore options to have televised matches on Saturday and Sundays. The move is part of a broader plan to free-up time for a mid-winter break, according to the Daily Mail. Much of the time required for the break would come in January, the time when clubs from the Premier League join the competition in the third round. There were changes to last season’s competition as the traditional ‘sixth round was renamed the quarter-final and replays from this round were cancelled.Matches were spread right across the weekend, with games played on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday. But this looks likely to end as the erosion of the FA Cup’s position as the pre-eminent club knockout competition in the world continues.last_img read more

Cork’s extra goal had kept them in it at the break as the sides went in tied Donegal 1-07, Cork 2-04.It was a superb display by the Donegal Ladies, one which new manager Margaret Foy can take great hope from. DONEGAL LADIES IN STUNNING DISPLAY AGAINST ALL-IRELAND CHAMPS CORK was last modified: February 9th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CorkdonegalFootballGAAlast_img read more
