Gaelic cup post #1  quote:



I was reding about this on Sunday and it seems that it will get the go ahead in the next couple of years.
Apparently SCotland, both Irelands and Wales will play against each other in a tournment held the Galeic cup which will be an annual event. This idea has been conceived because apprently the English FA are reluctant to restart the old home internationals despite McClaren and Venables being all for it.
I don't know about this I would frather have a bi - annaul British cup or something like that and I don't why England are aginst it surely they would win more often than not.
Also the name is weird might be just me but when I think of the word Gaelic I tend to think of Ireland, Scotland and France ( aint inviting France they are running sacred of Scotland ) not Wales I suppose we could try it and see how it goes, it will bring in fans because each British team wants to stuff the other when they play.

The English are against it probably because they are afraid that, with the new Premiership tv deals coming up, English football would seem sub-standard if they were beaten by Scotland, Ireland, Northern Ireland or Wales on a regular or semi-regular basis.
