Premier League to play matches abroad…good idea or pants proposal?

The BBC has some news hot off the press, looks like they’ll all be playing some games abroad! The BBC say:

“The English Premier League is considering playing some matches overseas, BBC Sport has learned.

“At a meeting in London on Thursday, all 20 clubs agreed to explore a proposal to extend the season to 39 games.

“Those 10 extra games would be played at venues around the world, with cities bidding for the right to stage them.”

This takes a leaf out of the NFL and the games that they have played abroad, so extra games in foreign fields, sounds like fun or a load of tripe?
