Problems with the current WC format: What are the current biggest problems that different parties have with the WC? Let’s break them down, party by party: 1. FIFA: FIFA wants more money. This is why FIFA has tried to establish the unpopular Confederations Cup and World Club Championship, and why there was a proposal for a WC every two years. This is also why FIFA works to spread allocations to regions where new markets can be opened. Simply put, FIFA wants MORE. 2. Confederations: Every single confederation wants more spaces. There isn’t a single confederation out there that believes it deserves as many allocations as it already has. On the contrary, every confederation believes it deserves more allocations than it already has. 3. Clubs: Clubs are annoyed at the number of national team matches in which their players must participate. 4. Small Nations: Small nations have far less possibility of qualifying for a WC (than large nations), and even less a possibility of ever hosting a WC than large nations. 5. Me (hell, its my thread, I can add my complaint). I find it annoying that losing your first two matches means certain elimination in this WC. If that’s the case, why not just have a straight, 32-team knockout round? Why give poor calls and fluky plays so high a chance of ruining a team’s trip to the WC? That’s my complaint. These are the problems--I have a solution.
