Re: The UEFA Nations League explained.
The suits can probably claim mucho expensiacs that were not available under the previous (friendlies) set-up.

Performance related pay for all - even those that don't actually have to do anything other then just turn up somewhere for a few days. What can be wrong with that?

Re: The UEFA Nations League explained.
If a team can qualify through the normal process why bother with the Nations league.

National managers will be happy to have more competitive games. Club managers the opposite

Presumed they were there already

That gives an incentive to slip into the bottom group.

Could be a strategy Scotland could look at?

Re: The UEFA Nations League explained.
Have always said friendlies should disappear completely apart from in the month before a tournament.
I understand England play Spain in a competitive game and then play another friendly next week. UNNECESSARY

Re: The UEFA Nations League explained.
I see the benefits of it. At least it reduces poxy friendlies and makes international matches outside of majors much more competitive.

It also gives lesser nations a bit more of a chance.

Re: The UEFA Nations League explained.
As I understand it the top group play for a trophy and there is a Euro 2020 place for the winner of each of the other groups.
Definitely a positive for the bottom group as one of these 16(?) who normally have no chance of qualifying will be at the finals.

Re: The UEFA Nations League explained.
I hate to say, but I don’t really understand it and have kind of excepted that as I can’t be bothered.
I am sure most will disagree, but I have done well in the education system and may be consided as intelligent

Re: The UEFA Nations League explained.
Definitely worth it to add some spice competitively ... and good for emerging countries (Luxembourg for example, fast improving) but I still don't get the link to the Euros ....am I being thick?

Re: The UEFA Nations League explained.
I agree, I'd rather this than endless pointless friendlies.

Jim C 7:23 Thu Sep 6
Re: The UEFA Nations League explained.
Although it seems quite complicated, I am in favour for three reasons.

1- Less friendlies
2- England will play meaningful opposition which can only help
3- Instead of being thrased by 7-8 goals against world class teams (no I don't mean England) who they shouldn't be playing, minnows like San Marino will have a fair competition

Re: The UEFA Nations League explained.
it's uefa flexing their muscles at fifa and at the expense of club football and its fans. there should be less international football, not more

Re: The UEFA Nations League explained.
You mean like Australia Fiji and Tonga?

Sven Roeder 7:10 Thu Sep 6
Re: The UEFA Nations League explained.
The groups are graded so teams of similar standard are together.
Surely it’s good for England to play challenging teams.

Far Cough 7:02 Thu Sep 6
Re: The UEFA Nations League explained.
Spain Croatia and England, that's not really a tough group at all is it?
