Lets be honest about it as it is not just at the top level. It is right through the game with games machines being used by the kids you can see which ones have been allowed to play the previous evening by their performance on a Sunday morning

Some of you will like facts and some wont.

But here is a study about recovery days and results following them

http://worldfootballacademy.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/WFA_Study-on-recovery-days.pdf

The main finding is...


Teams with only two days rest win significantly less games against teams with three or more
days rest. Analysis of the goals scored has shown that this unfair play takes place in the last
30 minutes of the game.
FINDING:
Teams with only two days rest score significantly less goals and concede
significantly more goals in the last part of the game.
This is clear proof that the unfair play is
a result of player fatigue in last 30 minutes of the game after only two days rest.

But point is that fitness (both physical and mental) does have a part to play and to think it doesn't is quite frankly stupid.

Not sure the term 'unfair play' is apposite to the problem, MJG, but the findings are pretty much as I understand life in general.  When you feel better you perform better.
