Premier League chairman have agreed to a trial winter break
which will begin next season. It is thought that the break
will begin after the Third round of the FA Cup is played in
early January. Paul Scholes has already voiced his support
for the idea:

"I think it would be a success," said Scholes. "Only time
will tell between now and the end of the season if the break
we took in Dubai last week will have helped us, but we hope
it will. We came back a lot fresher than we have been."
