I predict that players careers will be cut even shorter with the hard dry grounds.
The British weather, which incidentally has never been particularly scorching during the summer months, is changing.
Apr-May is generally decent and warm, Jun-Aug is very wet, and Sep-Oct is decent. However, each month, especially in the north are fairly wet with good amounts of rainfall. This is likely to increase even further in the future.
I predict as the icecaps melt further, the jet stream will push further south and produce sustained very wet periods in the UK (as seen this year). I also predict the North Atlantic Drift will collapse causing our winters to be become exceptional cold.
The relevance? Pitches will have a consistent amount of rainfall to keep them in reasonably good nick, especially if left with a good covering of grass but potentially come worse in winter, if the Gulf Stream collapses!
