    So essentially it'll be 11 English players on the starting XI with a Welshmen, Irishmen and Scot on the bench along 4 or so other English players?

    Stupid idea.

    Gordon or McGregor in goals
    Brown or Fletcher would get the odd game in midfield.

    Can't really think of anyone else. Had it been 3 years ago then Giggs and maybe Barry Fergus-hun would have got games.

    Oh yeah, forgot it was the Olympics.

    Surely the likes of Gareth Bale, that Ramsey lad at Arsenal, Fleck etc would see games?

    Will there be wider repercussions do you think? First step toward a British league anyone?

    Funny isn't it? What is a "British Identity"? Most British people are ashamed of many of the things you'd associate with Britain (arguably rightfully so). Their "culture" is based on raping other cultures.

    indeed, modern british culture is based on people from their colonies who emigrated, immigration is the best thing to happen to england. not that you'd know it from their attitude to immigrants

    not meaning any offence,but i think its a disgrace that britain gets to enter four "national" teams in competition.

    regions of germany or spain say,have as much right as regions of the u.k to enter teams seperatley.four teams from one country is an anachronism that shouldn't have to be tolerated by newer members of f.i.f.a.

    how can it be fair that countries twice britains size get one vote at executive council meetings yet britain gets four.its not on and its only right that f.i.f.a move to do something about

    if you want an independent national team,get an independent country

    Scotland and england can argue the point that they were the first two national teams and effectively began organised international football on their own
    I'm raising money for the Multiple Sclerosis Trust. Any donations would be really sound and much appreciated!

    As extreme as it may sound, they are all very fair points IMO.

    If I had to chose between being part of the United Kingdom but losing the Scottish National team, or having a Scottish National team and Scotland being an Independent national. I would pick the first, remaining part of the UK. Ofcourse all hypothetical as we will never need to make such a choise.

    true,but it was the french who took the lead with f.i.f.a was it not

    and these days ,with so many nations as members ,its unfair in the extreme for britain to have a de facto voting bloc of 4 while others with one have to suffer adverse decisions
