It should also make teams play in a more attacking style from the beginning.

Agreed. Yet I'm sure we will see groups like, say:

Germany
New Zealand
Canada

That could be an exaggeration, though, but not by much...

OK but given the likelihood that Germany qualify by beating New Zealand and Canada, the match between those two is gonna be absolutely epic. And Germany will be shitting bricks in their final game if they lose or even draw to either of them in the 1st match.

So this is all for good in the end?

Well apart from making the pre-qualification stage a bit more boring than usual, I can't honestly see a downside during the actual tournament itself.

yeah it looks a bit more rational upon further examination.

the group round will be shorter, which will make for a more dynamic start. no time to warm up or fuck up or test shit. 2 games & you're done.

then it's knockouts from then onwards, no holds barred. fine.

it's just the sheer number that fucks me up a little and yes, what kind of elimination will there be?

CONMEBOL has only 10 members. currently it has 4.5 spots (4 guaranteed, 1 last chance played vs. oceania or something)

with 48 spots it will end up having what-- 8?

so basically if you're a south american country you just have to put on your pants and show up.

fuck the qualifiers for 2 years then. who needs all those time wasters.

Qualification has always been a bit of a chore, this doesn't help (and I'm sure the main motivation is just to make sure that none of the big established teams fail to make it) but it has to improve the group stage at least.

So, Payet has basically gone on strike at West Ham to force a move to ... Marseille? Arsenal? ... China? He was happy enough in the summer to sign a new mega bucks contract. Makes me sick.

Best bit was where Gosling nutmegged that Asian guy. Made him look so stupid.

So now it's Diego Costa's turn to be tempted by a ludicrous offer from China (500k a week) and all the indications are that he might bite. If he does it'll send panic throughout the major European leagues. He'll be the 1st really world class player, at the peak of his career, to make the move.

I'd say it's more like the new USA, except China's rich enough to tempt great players at the peak of their career, rather than at the end of it.

the mls has a lot of competition though-- has to squeeze a weird season between the nfl, the nhl, the nba, and baseball. it might conquer 100 years from now maybe but it's tough to get a bigger slice.

china on the other hand is ripe for explosive growth in professional sports and wide open. football is their most popular one already, basketball their 2nd. so maybe the nba will be their next victim. but right now european football is on the crosshairs.
