  1. The P+B Quiz League (and Cup)

    Only knew two so fairly delighted with a slutty seven.
  2. The P+B Quiz League (and Cup)

    Don't know what division I am in, but started the week with a miserable 4.
  3. The P+B Quiz League (and Cup)

    57% and 43%... what's that... 4 and 3?
  4. UEFA Nations League

    There are 55 teams now, so the main qualifying campaign will be five groups of five and five groups of six.
  5. La Liga / Copa Del Rey Ole

    It's quite rude to ruin somebody's post.
  6. P&B Dead Pool 2017

    Passed away at 1245, apparently.
  7. The P+B Quiz League (and Cup)

    Friday... http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/mind-games/quiz?quizId=7773&sectionId=1 A freaky five which might be enough to put me in a relegation playoff spot... if I'm lucky.
  8. UEFA Nations League

    The 2026 World Cup looks brilliant, but I won't ruin another thread banging on about that...
  9. World Cup 2018 Qualifying

    5.13% actually, you big pessimist.
  10. A bit harsh. Nobody has considered whether the flags might have goaded them.
  11. UEFA Nations League

    It's reasonable to complain that some teams will get a virtual bye to the playoffs regardless of how well they do, and it's also fair to complain that teams in the group below are rewarded for their consistent losing with an easier path to the finals. The previois qualifcation system has some flaws but is, at least, mostly fair. And teams know what they have to do to qualify before the tournament starts. Have ten groups, top two in each qualify, best eight third place teams go into playoffs. By all means have the Nations League as a separate competition, the promotion and relegation element, and the playoffs for the overall competition winner, seem fair, easy to understand and, quite possibly, reasonably exciting. It should have no interaction with qualification for the Euros in its current format, though.
  12. La Liga / Copa Del Rey Ole

    Quite. Anyway, there is already an Andorran team in the Spanish league system so there is a precedent for allowing teams from outside Spain.
  13. UEFA Nations League

    Looking at the groups it seems that being in the top group is good... the vast majority will qualify automatically so you could, ludicrously, lose every game in the Nations League, have a shit qualifying campaign in which you never to finish in the top two and still get a playoff spot, pretty much by default. The second group has possibilities. There are likely to be six or seven teams who qualify for the playoffs due to teams "moving up" to fill available spots in the first group. Again, you'd assume that a few of the teams will qualify via the main qualification campaign. You couldn't lose every game and get in the playoffs here, but a mediocre campaign would still likely be enough. The bottom group gives teams who would normally have no chance a reasonable shot at qualification. They'd have to win lots of games and then win the playoffs, but as you're talking about pish like Lithuania and Kazkahstan, this will still present a far easier path to the finals than they have currently. The one group that seems to be thoroughly disadvantaged by the new proposals is group three. There will still be tough teams here, Balkan powerhouses and Scandinavian competitors. Few will qualify automatically so only those having a really good campaign will make the playoffs. Even then, the playoffs would likely be against someone quite decent. This seems the worst group to qualify from. This is the group that Scotland will be in.
  14. Clyde v Edinburgh

    It's absolute mental shite.
