Istanbul airport, 5.30am this morning, and fans in Liverpool and Chelsea shirts boarding flights to all over, not simply back to the UK. It was a vision of a global reach to quicken the adrenaline and thicken the wallets of those who own Premier League clubs. It was a temptation to make the temporary invasion of lucrative foreign parts an even more regular occurrence.

The world descending on Istanbul, and the locals’ desire to watch at first-hand the passion play that is English football, has placed the so-called 39th game back on the agenda.
