Idea that deserves to be taken into consideration. It would not mortify meritocracy, it would streamline the calendar and would also make it possible to avoid various mortifications.
San Marino takes 10 from England. No questions at the press conference for Franco Varrella. The coach of San Marino throws it there: why not play like in Nations? Idea that deserves to be taken into consideration. It would not mortify meritocracy, it would streamline the calendar and would also make it possible to avoid various mortifications. Just take a look at the latest results. San Marino took 10 from England. Kazakhstan 8 from France. Malta 7 from Croatia and six from Slovakia. Cyprus 6 from Russia. Liechtenstein 9 from Germany. Turkey – Gibraltar ended 6-0 …
NATIONS – If the European qualifiers for the world championships divided, along the lines of the Nations League, more balanced matches would be generated in more leagues and the winners could still have the opportunity to play for the qualification for the world cup by winning their own group. A viable idea is to form four leagues. Assuming that Europe has 13 places available for the World Cup, the groups are formed following the ranking. The four who win the groups of “League A” would play only six national matches to secure the World Cup. The best second would accompany the first 4. The other 8 would result from the play-offs between sixteen national teams. Seeded, the four seconds of the “A”. And the other 12 from the winners of the four groups of “B” and “C” and “D”. There are sixteen in all. Round trip match, by drawing lots. Total 8 matches for each team to get to the world championship, more or less like now, but at least more homogeneous challenges.
WENGER – From this point of view, Wenger’s plan, which in addition to the two-year World Cup also provides for a reform of the international calendar, could be as revolutionary as it is effective. The former Arsenal coach, in a nutshell, wants to reorganize the calendar of international commitments in fewer windows (the dream would be one) but longer to reduce the intercontinental movements of the players. A solution that would allow the CTs of time and performance, as well as simplify the calendar. The consequence: to create more space for international tournaments without adding more games. Moving the aforementioned window with the aforementioned formula to June, once the national and international competitions are exhausted, would solve various problems and reassure the clubs and would allow the players a greater rest. Without the September, October, November and March windows, the championships would start later.
