The process of getting rid of the shite so the tournament can start in earnest has always been a drag for me, looks like that process is gonna drag on even more now, yaaaaawn

If it makes a better spectical than the dire shite that was the last Euros im game for any changes. 

Not sure how this will but give it a try. 

Inclusion of more countries is fine as long as you understand its about corporate advertising under the guise of football not the football itself.

not sure Kev

the format seems to actually improve things

one set of groups of 3 round then  straight into the  knockouts yep ?

for a team getting to semis it means the same amount of matches but one less group and one more knock out ?

is that worked out right?

Group of 3 open to fixing. 

There isn't many countries that can host that many teams with top facilities?

Read yesterday that penalties are to be used in drawn group matches to avoid carve ups.

More than likely the tournaments will be held in 2 neighbouring countries.

Its about politics and money not football. New FIFA guy promised all the small countries access to the World Cup and he's just paying them back. I was surprised that the FIFA committee voted it through unanimously......or am I :shhh:

The top teams will always go through, does anybody really believe that Burkina Faso will reach the group phase whilst Chile or Holland remain at home ?

Love the "will generate about €600 million extra revenue that will be re-invested in football". For Infantino to get the votes he needed he promised all the Mickey Mouse countries a shot at the WC (aka money). The guy's just a slicker version of Blatter, heaven help FIFA because they don't seem to be able to do so.

fifa wordings for a penalty shoot out , if you lose the shoot out your eliminated from the competition but its not listed as a defeat so 2014 holland went home undefeated !!!
