    If the players shared your view then international football would cease to exist. Big clubs would obviously prefer it if their employees lost their appetite to represent their countries.

    As for archaic, out dated and a waste of time. Well, if we applied that analysis to Scottish football we would be as well as to ask 95% of our clubs to pack it in tomorrow?

    Fortunately, football is much more than business to supporters and there is still a demand for international football from fans, even in wee diddy nations like Scotland.

    As for an expanded world cup. Nonsense, it smacks of greed and money making on the part of FIFA.
    Moreso the bureaucrats than the clubs but I get what you mean.

    Is there though? Previously I couldn't really careless but I'd go, every now and then, if there was a spare ticket on the bus now there's not even a bus running from here. The prices, the standard and the day in general putting people off.

    Football is much more than a business I never suggested it wasn't but surely lining the SFAs pockets is more business like than anything else. What return on 60 a head do we see in our game after an international against England for example?

    It will dilute the competition sadly.
    Does that matter? I don't watch the World Cup solely for competition quality. Similar to the Olympics, it's an international festival and event. Quality comes later in the tournament.

    Bad thing for me. Dilutes the quality. Personally think some confederations already get too many qualifying spots as it is. CONCACAF is a total joke. Is impossible for USA and Mexico not to qualify playing against pub teams. South America also qualify 5 out of 9 teams. Granted they are all good quality but there is talk of combining the Americas and giving them more qualifying spots. Not for me. Keep it as it is for a few years longer until the rest of the world improves in quality
    Totally agree with Concaf...utter drivel of a region...
