    World Cups - Every 2 years or 4 years?

    World Cups - Every 4 years or every 2 years?

    Go.


    =============

    We know Wenger and a few (Infantino also) have suggested a WC every 2 years format.
    (idiot Hajsafi also agreed! God only knows why)

    Is it good for football or for us or for aliens watching us from space?

    Go.

    Not trying to influence anyone (f%$k yeah, I AM) but I am ALL for the four year deal.
    remember we have asia cups too.

    And lets not forget how this will rob the precious novelty of the WC even further (increasing the numbers has already done it).
    There is immense satisfaction for a nation to have qualified for the WC. the prestige, the bragging rights, the glory.
    why?
    BECAUSE it is a hard-fought, rare achievement.

    (Imagine if gold became so cheap that you could buy it with the price of a loaf of bread. what would its possession value be then?)

    ==============

    but besides the obvious, the danger of this is running players to the bone and overkill of football to the point that it WILL backfire on fans, players, clubs, nations, and football.

    remember there are:
    1- domestic league games
    2- domestic cup games
    3- Continental club championship games
    4- Continental national games qualifiers
    5- Continental national games
    6- Olympics qualifiers
    7- Olympics games (for those who qualify)
    AND
    8-WCQ's
    .... ALL THAT, SHOVED INTO A ONE AND HALF YEAR PERIOD (even if you leave out the olympics out every other edition) !!!!


    This is bordering on criminal torture and slavery



    Then we have totally idiotic morons like the brits who add another set of cup games to it all.
    And Europe not wanting to fall behind on the "moron-o-meter" have started this imbecilic "Euro nations whatever the f&%k" tournament too!
    And the "Euro super-league" deal hasnt completely died yet!!!!


    =============================================



    On the other hand, you are almost ENSURED of playing the WC every two years and probably even advance from the group phase with a host of even SHITTIER teams allowed in every time.
    yippeee!!



    (There. Both sides thoroughly explained in depth & precision. Nobody can accuse me of being biased )

    The ideal would have been a WC every 3 years. But for Iran, 2 years is good too.

    To answer your statement :

    - CL is every year and it has still prestige.

    - we should and are currently qualifying for every wc since 2014. Even since 1998 we only missed two wc. The joy of qualification doesn't exist for wc regular.

    - I can understand an European that gives importance to eurocup but asian cup, come on. We already play crappy Asian side in friendlies and wcq. Even with asian cup+wcq+asian cup we never played other top asian teams like Australia and KSA.

    - everybody is critical with a wc every two years but the mail problem is useless games like nation league, euro with 24 teams, wc with 48 teams, qualifiers for both euro and wcq, copa America every year

    The world cup is already an euro with the addition of exotic teams. I find continental competition useless, who cares who is champion of Europe, asia etc.., why not decide who is champion of west Europe, east Europe then.

    As a team melli fan we want our team to play the best. We are all unsatisfied to have :

    - 0 friendlies, specially against good teams. When we have, bosnia field a B team.
    - only asian games with low level and 0 coverage
    - as a result, TM prestige is low as 4 years (even 8 years) completely delete all the good things we showed at the previous world cup.
    - as a consequence, our prestige is low, international media, fans and football worlds mocks us at each WC. Our players are underrated and don't get the transfer they deserve

    There are no continents in a one world government situation. The additional world cup tournaments will be necessary to replace the regional tournaments. This is all just propaganda for the future, when UN agenda 2030/2025 is completed.
    The REAL. The LEGEND. Since 2001.

    There is a clear rift about big teams/confederation (europe and south America) being against and smaller ones (africa, asia, north/central America) being in favor.
    It is logical and as my NT is asian I side for a wc every 2 years

    Uefa Nation league will feature European and South American teams from 2024.

    Another reason to support wc every 2 years. Every TM should support the idea of seeing TM in big competition every 2 years, instead of watching 4 years of useless games featuring the rest of the world
