Martin O'Neill says the season is dragging on for the Premiership players because of the needless friendlies including our English contingent who face the USA and Trinidad & Tobago.
The Villa boss told the official site:
'Some of the players were saying that the annoyance is not so much in coming back a day or two earlier, it is actually having meaningless friendly games almost three weeks after the season's over. Players who really should be sitting on a beach by now are still having to think about friendly games that don't mean anything. John Carew's playing for Norway for instance and Norway haven't qualified for the Euros. The same goes with the two England games.'
He labels the games 'meaningless' and says it just runs the risk of injuries to the players.
Nothing that is going to change any day soon though is it? The game could do with many changes but those in charge aren't interested in bringing it into the modern era! Must admit the international games seem to be taking on less and less importance as the years pass, especially with the quality of 'captain' they choose these days to represent our country!
