British Superleague post #1  quote:



Heres what I would like to see happen. An 18 team league compromised of;
the 13 top English teams
the 4 top Scottish teams

The final spot would be played off by way of a four team group consisting of ;
the top Welsh team
the top Irish team
the #14 English team
the #5 Scottish team

The bottom 3 are relagated at the end of the year

The top English and Scottish teams from the newly structured national leagues are promoted along with the winner of the 4 team group consisting of;
the top Welsh team
the top Irish team
the#2 English team
the #2 Scottish team

Disclaimer; other than the old firm I know little of the Scottish league so my numbers may need a little adjusting, but you get the idea

Lets see the teams that would have sure-fire places would be;

1.Man Utd
2.Arsenal
3.Chelsea
4.Liverpool
5.Newcastle
6.Rangers
7.Celtic

Possible teams would be;

8.Charlton,
9.Fulham
10.Southampton.
11.Motherwell
12.Dundee Utd
13.Dundee
14.Birmingham
15.Bolton
16.Middlesborough
17.Aston Villa

and the final one could be any of the teams from the Premiership, SPL, THE welsh league and the Irish league (But I hope that it would be Portsmouth)

Part II

No qualifying should ever occur at the END of a competitive year.

The tournament structure should be laid out before the beginning of the year. ie The 04-05 season would qualify teams for the 05-06 superleague season, that way everybody knows what they need to do from the beginning of the season.

I hate when FIFA ''adjusts '' the qualifying every year before the worldcup, if you want to pick the teams that go just pick them. Dont fiddle with the brackets to make it work out the way you want it to

The whole idea is to eliminate picking who goes in. Set the brackets, see what happens

The only problem I could see is with relegation issues what if the bottom 3 are Scottish are they replaced with 3 Scottish teams or 1 Scottish 1 English and an Irish team?

The teams moving up will always be

1 English 1 Scottish 1 from the 4 team group

thus giving the league the ability to vary its composition . It is gauranteed that there will always be 1 English and 1 Scottish side but the rest of the league could possibly be Irish (not likely).

This presents some interesting scenarios for promotion/relegation in the lower leagues since you dont know if the drop zone is 1 , 2 or 3 until the end of the superleague season

Actually the list is mine and I only put Motherwell and Dundee in because thay were the only teams I could think of at the time and I don't know the financial status of the Scottish teams.
