we've been to Aberdeen, we hate the Hibs, they make us spew up, so make some noise,
the gorgie boys, for Hearts in Europe.

International games with more meaning than friendlies. Don't see the harm myself

I think it's that rarest of things, a good idea from football administrators*. Teams playing against similar standard teams (okay, and England playing against better teams) outside of tournaments is a good thing. Especially for us, I suspect.

* Don't worry, they've contrived to make the detail baffling, but the root idea is good

It is complicated, but in essence I think its quite a good idea.

The last League of Nations did not turn out too well.

Expect this latest incarnation to result in a period of domination by The Hun coupled with a resurgence of The Azzurri.
La Roja will implode after a period of internal in fighting.
