    What? You mean there is mileage in that old English long-ball game? Allardyce, Wimbledon...all beat the odds if planned & executed well with it.

    What - you're disinterested in England waking up?

    Instinct is a wonderful thing.

    I habe said the same with Wellbeck...give him time & space to think - he will most likely miss.

    Except to gain experience in playing against the best...you need to be in the same league. Imo it is a great idea. They are definitely competetive friendlies rather than either a full blown tournament or an out & out friendly

    Yeah, agree. It has replaced friendlies with games against much better opposition and added an edge to those 'friendlies'.

    yup also in league c and d its great to see smaller nations and their fans have a chance to celebrate wins

    be it historical wins like gibralters or just likes of lithuania or faroe islands picking up victories.

    finnaly you can really chart a nations devlopment now too, like is bulgaria or hungary managed to get to league b or a it would show the good work being done in their grassroots etc

    I think people will really start to get interested in it when the promotion and relegation come to play. If England got relegated you can imagine the Scots giving it loads and then England really wanting to get back up.

    At least we're safe in the knowledge that Scotland will never get promoted.

    You think that we could soon be facing them in the Checkatrade Trophy?
