    Should We ???



    Should We ???

    Should teams such as England play teams like Andoraa ??? Games like tonight do make you wonder. 6-0 and a stroll in the park. As much as I feel qualifying should be for all teams (the same as I feel the Champs League is a fixed closed shop for the G18) I do wonder if the so called minnows should play a pre-qualifying league?? I think that UEFA likes them because it means more final numbers at the World Cup for European teams and therefore more power for Pratini and the cock Blatter but . . . . . Maybe draw 2 of them wild cards to be drawn straight in with the "Big Boys"? Then make the rest of 'em (San Marino et al) play and get experience of close fought games. Maybe after that make them play against a second stage of teams that are slightly better but only just (Khazikstan etc ???). After these 2, or maybe 3, qualifying leagues we would have teams that could justify full International games. This could help their development and make them more competetive and willing to play attacking football. I'm a bit torn on this as I do feel it is also their right to be in the competition as members of UEFA but. . . . . . . but, are they really good enough and are we (England etc) & UEFA doing them any favours by throwing them in the deep end ????? OK thanx to teams like Andorra qualifacation for the World Cup gets a big helping hand (can you imagine England gettin' thro' a group with Germany, Spain, Holland & Greece in ?) but does this kind of group demean the very esscence of competiton ???? Be intrested to hear youse guys thoughts and who you think are the really CRAP teams and which teams aren't so crap. ... . .. .. . . . . .

    It's my opinion they should have to play teams like Andorra we all love a goal fest & even though they got trounced you see they were havin the time of there life. A couple retired at Wembley as well. You can't pick & chose who you play if they qualify they qualify.

    You can't just go round moving the goal posts when you want if you don't like what your seeing. It would be unfair on the smaller teams & lets face it i bet the likes of Defoe liked the chance to bag a couple of goals.
