That will be pretty cool, though perhaps not if your group games are in Vancouver, then Mexico City then New York or something travel crazy.

Obviously all about money but I don't get it. How will that work, and does it mean 3 teams auto qualify as hosts?

Fucking rubbish.

3rd WC in Mexico since 1970, 2nd US since 1994. And fuck all for us since 66. Would love a World Cup over here.

Surely a combined GB bid could work then?

Its been 20 years since we've been to the World Cup, and I don't even have the intrigue of hoping England won't win it and worrying that they could to keep me interested any more.

Don't think that will ever happen, now we have joined the other 7 countries hosting the joint Euro 2020; i can't see it ever coming back to a single country again.

Especially with a 48 team tournament

That'll be the only realistic chance of Scotland ever playing in a WC again.

We were so close last time... but...

It’s so important. I’ve got two sons and neither give a shit about football. The World Cup and Scotland being there was what hooked me in as a kid and I’d love them to witness the same.

Oops, yeah I meant hope he wins a third term. He'll need to change the precious Amendments in his second term to allow anyone called Trump to run for leader for as long they want.

RTE going through the official VAR system.

Seems to be far more clarification than the example we saw last season in England.

Fully expect it to fall apart by half 4 today.
