  1. Starting XI v South Korea

    I think he'll go with this line up McGovern McLaughlin McAuley Evans Lewis Ward Davis Norwood Saville Jones Lafferty Think he'll pick a pretty strong team and will want to win the game. Cathcart's only just back from a lengthy injury so would be surprised if he starts him. McAuley deserves to start and hopefully can get his 10th goal Brunt's absence opens the door for Lewis and seeing the link up between him and Jordan Jones would be exciting. Lafferty vs Washington is probably a close call but Lafferty's been scoring freely for Hearts and his height may be useful against South Korea. Ward vs Magennis is another tough call. Might fancy Magennis for his power and height but Ward played extremely well for us against Switzerland so maybe has the edge Think he'll introduce more fringe players in the summer games
  2. UEFA considering international leagues

    I think the only way they could create such a league structure would be if they abolished the Euro qualifying groups. I could see them saying that the top x ranked sides automatically qualify for the European Championships, with the remaining sides being determined by playoffs with league placings used to determine who is seeded for the playoffs. That would then leave them with c. 2 years worth of international fixtures to play the league matches. However, can't see it happening and it would be a shame if the smaller nations lost the opportunity to regularly take on the bigger sides.
