  2. UEFA considering international leagues

    That's almost certainly where we're heading. Because, if what is currently advertised was the end-game, then the big boys wouldn't be in favour. What's in it for them? They can pick and choose their feriendlies already - England mainly play the Dutch/French etc and only play "weaker" teams when it suits them. This actually erodes their flexibility and ties them in to playing European opposition, rather than non-European teams which are attractive on lucre (say, Brazil), variety and/or also World Cup preparation. This is a stitch-up, of that there should be no doubt
  3. UEFA considering international leagues

    Which is kinda the point, I guess. UEFA sees a steady stream of all the big teams playing each other and the eyes spin like a slot machine to the pound signs Except it will get zero backing. The minnows will say no because they'll be constantly stuck playing each other even worse than now. The medium-ranking nations (I'm generously including us in that) exactly due to GPJim's point. And the big boys will say no for both commercial and practical reasons - commercial because it reduces their ability for money-spinning games against Brazil, Argentina, China, Japan etc., and practical in that if they are locked in to a virtually exclusive diet of European oppo, the chances to prepare for non-European challenges presented by a World Cup are significantly reduced. So it won't fly. Ironic that this is yet more monsense arising out of the most bone-headed, pig-ignorant decision a footballing body has ever made, the move to ruin the Euros by expanding it to 24 teams...
