The latest proposal for the world cup is to have 48 teams, rather than 32. Are there 48 quality nations out there? There are always 3 or 4 who miss out, who almost deserve to be there on past glory, but not an extra 16. It would be nice for us to make it, but I'm not including us in that list of those who almost deserve to be there. We just havent been good enough.

Depends which areas get the increases.


Common sense

It is set up for the usual suspects to qualify anyway...... so why not get others in......

Good move.

Then all ye want is the top teams....... the seeded option.

Get enough of that in Champions league.

It's still seeded, but more chance of a number of smaller countries get through..... in my book that's good,

Then again, I will happily watch poor teams. Well used to it.

No....I wouldn't want 'only' the top teams......but I don't want to see games between 5th rate teams which is what you would get by expanding. Plus I'm not a great one for change if there is no immediate benefit to be seen..... :D

I think watching the likes of Wales or Iceland was one of the highlights of Euro 2016. I think more teams like this would benefit the World Cup.

Forget this, I want Bonnie Scotland to qualify in the real tournament. Why not just rebadge a World Cup II for the smaller nations.

Total Shite!!!!
