I know its a year away, BUT, this 'could' have a bad effect on Palace 1st team, as in players NOT available.

We would lose Ayew, Schlupp, Kouyate and Zaha if he is still here.

So considerably less than the absentees we have now.

4 is probably too many to go missing for a month or so and given the disruption caused I think we should be avoiding signing African nation players until we have reduced the current number .

On a broader point and with the influx of African players in the English game I think it would be a good idea to suspend the leagues during the African Nations maybe playing a condensed (the whole competition) format FA Cup during this period

Play the league cup early in the season and have the final before the end of the year. Have a winter break
to coincide with early part of the African Nations cup
when most teams are played and as you say play a couple of rounds of the FA cup.

 


One more point

Would make more sense than what I said and could be a format adopted even in non African Nations years
