      Can we make a bid on De Jong and De Ligt please?

      They would probably cost a minimum of 60m.... each!!

      So England, Holland, Portugal or Switzerland to lift the trophy. Great chance for a trophy. England really should have shown interest in hosting and not let Portugal get it so easily.

      I quite like this Nations League, probably because Norway managed to get promotion from League C! But in seriousness I think it produced some quite good matches, certainly better than normal friendlies.

      Nations League has been fun and competitive, but I am still against it, same with friendlies during the season. Imagine playing qualifiers instead and scraping the friendlies? More rest time for players during the season and summer.

      What  I'd do is have nations league replace qualifying more. A system where group A winners and runners up qualify auto. The two Group B play off finalists qualify, Group C and D winners qualify. That's 4+2+1+1+hosts which leaves the remaining 46 teams to go into groups with 15 places available. Could have 10 groups where winners qualify and runners up play off. The group's would be 4 or 5 teams big. That replaces the old 5 or 6 places big. That means teams only have 6 or 8 qualifying games. If teams have 6 qualifying games they get a qouta of 4 friendlies. For teams with 8 qualifying games 2 friendlies. All teams would get 10 international games during qualifying after the nations league. Nations League winners would need much more ranking points per win to ensure they wouldn't lose ranking places due to a much shorter qualification.

      ahh my reading skill was off there. They could have a go at getting Chris Coleman if they will accept a non Irish person.

      Why exactly? England already co-hosts the Euros as it is.

      We could always sign players with no chance of playing international football. They would all be crap players admittedly, but they would get their rest time in the season and summer.

      There's no point in being "against it", it's up and running, and here to stay. Most English fans seemed to be against it when it started up, but because Lovren had a 5 minute snooze against England, the general opinion has changed, and they're singing football's coming home again.

      It's a bit of a mickey mouse tournament tbh, and the 3 team groups should be scrapped imo, but it gave the big countries what they wanted, and the weaker countries a chance to show what they're capable of. You could have 3 groups of 4, every game as competitive, with the winners and best runner up qualifying for the finals.
