FA Cup, Copa del Rey could be played after 2022 Qatar World Cup

One of the biggest issues facing the next FIFA president is the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

LONDON -- English and Spanish cup competitions could be completed in June 2022, after a World Cup in Qatar, under proposals being presented to FIFA next week by leading European clubs.

The European Club Association is proposing an April-May timeframe for the World Cup, arguing it would be less disruptive to the season than FIFA president Sepp Blatter's favoured November-December solution for avoiding playing in the fiercest summer heat in Qatar.

The cost of a cup run for smaller clubs

Paul Lambert has been outspoken in prioritising results in the Premier League over the league and FA Cups.

It may have betrayed something of a closed-minded attitude towards the old knockout competitions, but it also finally opened up the debate properly. Back in January, Paul Lambert had said what many suspected: the domestic cup competitions don't matter all that much to many managers. Before that, the vast majority of his Premier League counterparts had only implied it through their team selections. Lambert explicitly stated it.

"That is the nature of it," the Aston Villa manager said. "If anyone...
