48 Team World Cup 2026!

Recommended Posts

FIFA have decided!

Had a lot of support from ex players such as Maradona and Desaily (i think). I wasn't a fan but they think its a good idea for some reason.

Is this to make up the shortfall from the all the corruption cash they were making?

 

Thoughts??

The 16 team Euros and 32 team World Cups were both perfect for being decent quality from the start and also allowing for a simple, logical format. 

Sadly unsurprising that UEFA and FIFA respectively have managed to feck both up....

The standards going to be dreadful, there going to dilute the talent that much it will turn people off the tournament. 

Basically, it's greed on Fifa's part, more games = more sponsors.

The only effective way to make them rethink is to not watch it.

I won't. It has become a boring spectacle along with Euro's, CL and the rest.

The Euro's have always been brilliant, yet they've tinkered with the format and what we got were teams fielding weakened teams in the third game.

Albania had to wait three days to learn their fate.

If they are going to expand the World Cup then maybe it would be better to let the power house nations have an A and B side?

Surely that has to better than watching some of the teams on display?

I don't mind the expanding of the tournament. The quality is still going to be there look at some of the teams who have missed out over the last few years or don't normally make the finals but have brought something to the tournament when they have reached that stage. Holland,  Czech Republic , Polland, Sweden, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Iceland, Hungary the list goes on and these are the sort of teams that will benefit apart from a few who could make it without the changes. I'm still far more pissed off at the locations of the tournaments as apposed to how many teams or who will be playing in them.

It's 48 teams not 100 teams, why on earth would they allow A & B teams in.

    • We have two hodge podges, we had two last year and they had two little hoglets but they were out during the day so we handed them to a santuary but they died which was a shame. We have just started feeding them and for the past week the food was gone in the morning so last night I put my nest indoor cam outside as it wasn't going to rain, we got the hogs on the camera and a fat ginger cat which we call gingi. Was funny just watching them all eat and drink.,

    • Looking forward to the Leeds v Boro game, might actually watch this with a couple of Vodkas as I don't have to be at work until Tuesday. I have to drive from Middlesbrough to Scotland and then From Scotland to Portsmouth on Monday though!!!
    • Reports all over the sports news that he's been linked to them and he's posted a cryptic message.

      He'll keep them up I think. He builds the team up from the back, I thought he done wonders with our defence in the time he managed us. Shame he couldn't get us to score!
