LOL
Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

There are very few countries on their own who could host a 48 team tournament and I presume once 48 teams are established as the qualifier total, there will be no going back to 32 or 40!

Ok I'll bite ....There was not one mention of Ireland in any of those articles and Ireland would not have the infrastructure, knowhow or facilities to even host a group in the WC.

Last time we tried to get involved ( the IRFU) we were made look like a bunch of complete lightweights and were rightly put back in our box for having a sh1tty amateur,  half baked solution ....what makes anyone think Ireland could help out here? ....delusions of grandeur I am afraid .....much and all as it would be great for the country ....it aint a runner.

Ahh in fairness we could do one group, it’s only 4 games now as each group only has 3 teams.
LR and some redeveloped/new stadium in Belfast.
I doubt Norn Iron could have 2 stadiums available so they would have to share it with the Rep.
Even if “Ireland” were given two groups, 8 games, you could have LR, Pairc Ui Chaoimh and Belfast.
Spread those matches over 7/8 days, no problem with hotel rooms etc.
Somehow doubt the Rep would be included though, I’d imagine Eng/Scot/Wal and maybe a token game or two in Belfast.

The Pairc is nowhere near the standard to host a international tournament. Its has 21k seats and even the rugby lads thought it was sub-standard in the RWC bid.

nobody remember the home international championships no? Used to be played every season back in the sixties/seventies, but there wasn’t near as many internationals then so it was a good squad builder for England/ Scotland  etc. discontinued as pointless a good while back .lot of fans used to travel up to Windsor when they were playing England or Scotland, good chance to see the great bestie in action too

The last one was in 1984.  NI are still the reigning champions.  I know a couple of Bohs fans who were on the bus to the England game at Windsor in 1983.  It was run by a NI fan who still lives in Dublin.  There were regular trains up to games in the 1960's from Dubin.  

As for the World cup bid.  I don't think we'd be included.  However there is no stadium in Belfast with 30K+ seats.  That is still the minimum requirement for a game.  England could of course host it alone but I imagine would include Scotland and Wales. 

I think the centenary should go back to Uruguay anyway but the finances of a UK bid would be very attractive to FIFA.

How did you get 4 matches in a group of 3?

Ireland and Britain would have sufficed, or as Britain would be the main host so to speak, Britain and Ireland would be acceptable.
