International Breaks

Will we play through these as normal this year? We only have Magennis and Da Silva as internationals (and maybe Konsa). Is that enough to call them off, as they're some big players to be missing?

  • Premier League and Championship clubs know that international weekends are empty but it’s not quite so clear for clubs lower down the leagues. Leagues One and Two usually have fixtures scheduled in but if a team has three or more players called up games can be rescheduled.

    this includes youth players.

  • so far the international breaks i can see are;

    02/10/2017 - 10/10/2017 - SAT 07OCT 2017 Peterborough United H possibly affected.
    06/11/2017 - 14/11/2017 SAT 11NOV 2017 Shrewsbury Town A possibly affected.
    19/03/2017 - 27/03/2017 - SAT 24MAR 2018 Plymouth Argyle H possibly affected.
  • whilst on the subject of fixtures no games on these dates due to fa cup;

    First Round Saturday 4 November 2017
    Second Round Saturday 2 December 2017
  • 1st / 4th September as well because England have fixtures against Malta and Slovakia on these days

    That clashes with our away fixture against Oldham on 2nd September
  • forgot about that @ForeverAddickted and im even heading out there!!!!
  • Do Clarke and Reeves play for Northern Ireland very often?

    Reeves has 2 caps. Last one as a sub in a qualifier last year.

    Clarke uncapped by ROI
  • anyone have any ideas when we will know if games are going to be called off this season currently looking at shrewsbury for £25.00 return but on international weekend in november.

    Probably get a good indication next week when the International Squads are announced ahead of the first break.

    If the Oldham game on 2nd September gets called off then there will be a good chance of Shrewsbury being called off.

    We are due to play Oldham on the 2nd September so that could be the first game that has to be resheduled.

  • Also possible Konsa could be called into an England youth squad. If we're going to miss DaSilva and Magennis it'd be nice if we had one more call up so we have the option to reschedule the game.

    Scotland announced theirs yesterday, so we may not have long to wait
  • Will Will Grigg make it three or Kashi for Algeria?

    Will Grigg potentially yet if he doesnt sign before the Squads are announced will we be allowed to have our Oldham game cancelled seeing that we were "technically" aware that he'd be missing in the first place (i.e. the same position we were left in when we signed Magennis after the Swindon game was selected for TV coverage.

    Kashi on the other hand has only ever received the one cap by Algeria so a call-up for him is thankfully doubtful.

    Wondering the same mate, as our group all fancy this one and if it goes ahead I sense a good turnout. Be nice to know as early as possible though.
  • England U21 Squad announced... Hopefully Joe Gomez can have a better time with them this time round.

  • England U19 Squad has been announced too... No Jay Dasilva or Ezri Konsa

    http://www.thefa.com/news/2017/aug/24/paul-simpson-england-u19s-squad-poland-germany-240817

    Comes down to whether they've been picked for England U20 Duty
  • http://www.thefa.com/home/news/2017/aug/24/england-u20-squad-netherlands-switzerland-240817

    Jay Dasilva called up to England U20s... No sign of Konsa

    Looks like the Oldham game goes ahead
  • Why are there U16s, U17s, U18s, U19s, U20s and U21s?
  • Also probably means that Johnnie Jackson will be playing Left-Back on that day...

    Yes, the number of age group teams does seem to have multiplied recently
  • Will we miss out two internationals more than they will miss theirs?

    Especially if a second Striker isnt signed as it'll be like the opening day of the season all over again

    You'd hope that Robinson will throw either Barnes or Dijksteel out of position at LB instead of Jackson.
  • Also probably means that Johnnie Jackson will be playing Left-Back on that day...

    Called up for the under 35s
  • I would sign a San Marino international and pay him £40k a year and never play him. It must be worth it rather than go into games with weak squads like Swindon last year
  • England U21 Squad announced... Hopefully Joe Gomez can have a better time with them this time round.

    3 players from our academy.
  • Oldham could only name three subs today and I read that they are going to miss two players to international duty on Saturday. Surely this should be able to be called off??

    Why would we want it called off if they're struggling even worse than us?

    Surely that should allow us to have games postponed!

    And how long before double-barrelled names reach double-figure in the squad?

    I'm waiting for the first treble barrelled name, to be honest.
