Still better than friendlies, which it is supposed to replace. 

Im looking forward to this as it gives countries like the Faroes more evenly matched teams to play against. 

So a pretty much meaningless game is more attractive than a glamour friendly against one of the top sides? the games in sections B and C are utterly meaningless

These games are not completely meaningless as they are a much more realistic way to qualify for us.. I would take that over a friendly any day.. we had a couple of glamour games in Portugal and they destroyed us twice... I would rather prefer a win against Latvia than being raped by Ronaldo.

Yes for the bottom sixteen ranked teams it's a chance for qualification,but for sections B and C it's meaningless can't see many tickets being sold for these games tbh,at least in international friendlies against top going to watch top players was a draw and put bums on seats.

Quite possibly.. 

In our case, the Faroes, we never get glamour friendlies as it just costs too much and we would probably get hammered.

This is also a good way to build up the coefficient points as you are in groups of similarly ranked teams.

Yes it's definitely a good thing for smaller nations although it's not really fair that they've been given an easier route for qualification,imo teams should qualify on merit and the best 24 sides should go to Euros,not lesser nations because they've been given an easier route.

I can see what you are saying, but it makes it easier for everyone - including Scotland - as everyone will be playing similarly ranked nations.

As far as I can make it out there's no qualification places for winners from groups B and C for some bizarre reason that's why I was saying the games are meaningless,even if you do somehow get promoted to league A after a while what chance do you realistically have against the top 12 sides in Europe who are playing for 4 places,it's a mental set up like something the SFA would dream up.

Hmm... I thought it was the same for the middle groups? Might be wrong...it is quite complicated it seems :lol:
