So what is everyones thoughts on the the new system of double headers being played on Tuesday and Fridays, instead of the more traditional Wednesday and Saturdays?

I honestly cannot believe that UEFA may get away with another change in traditions.

What will they do next?

Saturday - Tuesday makes sense as it means the players will get back to their clubs a day earlier. I can't see too many folk from the clubs or the countries complaining about that.

I'd never heard the Friday mentioned before - what difference would that make?

Maybe the countries like having a certain number of days for the players to recover from knocks, re-charge the batteries and organise tactics so would only be willing to bring the midweek game forward if the saturday game gets brought forward as well :dunno:

Scotland home games won't be Friday nights so doesn't make too much difference to us.

SO how do you come to that conclusion, if you don't mind me asking?

It does sound as if the footie is getting just a tad, messy...


More days in the week for a game to be played, more days in the week away from the wife.:thumbsup:

TV will be loving this....

We are getting further and further away from the good old Saturday afternoon K.O.

Very disappointing.

Playing our games on midweek nights will IMO help our campaign.

The Glasgow police will not allow a game on a Friday night. Too many people to handle along with the usual Friday night stuff.

It's only relatively recently that Saturdays have been used, maybe the last 10 years or so. Before that it was always Wednesdays.

Traditions change. Some for the better, some not.

Makes nae odds.

We'll still hammer everyone, including Spain, and win the European Championships by a clear fifteen goal lead :greengrin

UEFA has surrendered to the clubs from the big leagues again rather than consider the supporters of international teams - only welcome outcome may be in Scottish police forces are pressurised to rethink their moronic veto on Friday games and retruin to situation that existed in the 1990s.

Only if you think the interests of a minority of large clubs are more important than the interests of football overall.

How would playing on a Tuesday instead of a Wednesday upset football overall?
