Nations League

Recommended Posts

International breaks are boring as fuck, even with my wee country doing relatively well.

This is what @Terry Hurlock Loyal has mentioned a few times.

England in the top group, we're in group B with the Republic :bangbang: and Wales

Scotland in group C

The draw in January, first games September next year.

I've read that article about 4 times, and still have no fucking idea what's going on...

I think, and I mean only think, in groups B,C&D, the top team gets 'promoted' to the higher group, bottom goes down. though not sure where with D.

The top 4 teams in group A get automatic entry to the Euro finals.

Fuck knows what this means for the 'proper' Euro qualifying.

Should do away with this.The less pish international football the better, players are already playing enough games.

The 4 top teams in league A playoff to see who is the best. I also think that playoff winner gets onr spot at euros as the other 3 leagues each get one winner in euros. That's what I took it as.

Seems ridiculous. The lowest ranked of the third tier nations will be gutted they aren't in the lowest division. The lower the division you're in the easier the chance you have of winning it.

It's a farce mate surely a fairer way would've been the overall winner of each section gets a place,but that would other lesser probably undeserving nations getting there though,the whole set ups a joke probably thought up to try and drum up some interest in dying international football.

How long until the top league demands most of the money from TV and Scotland get relegated.

I'll give it one cycle, and the top teams will be demanding automatic entry to Euros indefinitely.

It's quite simple format, I actually think it is a good idea, friendlies at club and national levels are a waste of time mostly. So at least this brings in a competitive element to the calendar. I found this infographic explains the format better then the above article.

Oops, wrong post and I can't wipe it from my post!!! Probably makes just as much sense really!

Looks like a desperate attempt to revive international football,think it'll have the opposite effect outwith the top group there's hardly going to be any exciting ties.

When they released the format a month or so ago they had that graphic and an explanation and I read it about 6 times and still couldn't work it out.

Reminds me of when you look at Scottish football fixtures from the 60s and they have decided to have a 'Supplementary League Cup' :lol:

Im not sure they have thought this through - who wants to go and see scotland play Hungary, Romania,  Slovenia, Greece, Serbia, Albania, Norway, Montenegro, Israel, Bulgaria, Finland, Cyprus, Estonia or Lithuania.

 

Glamour internationals are what internationals are all about. This is not glamorous - at all

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.
