    Republic of Ireland (A) - Nov 15

    It looks like a Munster crest. I suspect that it’s only the top half of the flag*. Likely a provincial crest in each corner & Belfast in the middle as that’s where the owners of the flag are from. * why practically every football flag has to be six feet tall is beyond me. 90% of them end up half missing.

    UEFA considering international leagues

    I think the IFA should be making the case with UEFA that we cannot be drawn against them like Spain / Gibralta, Russia / Ukraine, etc. This is based on UEFA coefficient, which is different to FIFA rankings. The ROI are also above us in UEFA rankings, but below us in FIFA rankings if memory serves me correctly. 4,000?! Seriously?! I would be amazed if we brought anywhere near 2,000 to Vienna outside of school holidays.

    Just speculating because we're two places shy? Or based on more?

    The only way! We've probably lived through most of that experience together...

    I like your cynicism.

    Are Latvia deliberately trying to ensure they're in League D?

    The IFA can prevent 'home' tickets going rogue for such a scenario by keeping ticket record purchase history. No history, no ticket.

    That's the FIFA ranking table. I was under the impression that ranking for the Nations League was using an UEFA ranking table?

    Yeah, it's pretty difficult to find the national team rankings on UEFA.com.

    That's the club coefficient. National team rankings are different.

    According to this link: http://www.footballseeding.com/national-ranking-uefa/ranking-2017/ ... our ranking prior to the commencement of the Euros puts us in League B for the UEFA Nations League. Euro performance & Workd Cup 2018 performance has yet to be added. Each league is divided up into pools/groups. From Wiki, we'd be in group 4. Based on current rankings that'd have us in a group with Norway & the Republic of Ireland. Obviously lots will change in the interim, but interesting to see it start to take shape.

    Agree - the qualification thing is a bit mad. That said, I like the general idea of smaller leagues, promotion & relegation.
