Like most managers, Tony Mowbray has an open mind about the prospect of playing one Premier League fixture per season overseas.
His main concern, of course, is getting West Bromwich Albion in a position to be a part of such a significant shift in the globalisation of the sport, should it ever happen.
"We have got to get there first," he said. "It's not something I concern myself about. I have a very open mind about it. If this is the way forward for the Premier League then so be it, but if the groundswell of supporters are against it then we should be very careful to remember what the lifeblood of football is all about.
"While television rights can be good, we do need stadiums over-spilling with people wanting to watch live football. So there's a balance to be had.
"But I will never be against innovation, if that is what it takes to take football forward. It made me smile really, when I heard people talking about how this one game could decide the league and how unfair that would be. Having managed in Scotland for two years you play against one team three times.
"In one season it will be twice away and once at home. The way they do it there is to say that the next season the fixtures will be reversed, so you might play Celtic twice at home and Rangers twice away.
"It gets by, it works, it happens. So if they decide to go with this extra game some people will think it's great, others won't, but it will be happening and moving the game forward."
