Been mooted recently with FIFA claiming most fans would like to see it.

It's a no from me, I enjoy the current offerings of a Euros and a WC spaced out with a summer off.  Think over saturation would be a mistake as UEFA would likely insist on a Euros during the other summers.  The Nations League would have to find a place amongst it too and people are already bored of that.

Despite the wages etc in football I think players deserve a whole summer off to spend with their families and rest up for the upcoming domestic seasons, I think the overall product would be compromised if players are basically asked to play non stop for ten years.

The anticipation of upcoming seasons, not to mention the sometimes much needed break, for fans is important too.

Am I on my own on this one?  What do you think?

Terrible idea.
Another money making scheme for FIFA and more chance for them to get some back handers with extra World Cup bids.
Arsenal Wenger can fuck off too.

Half the fun is the anticipation and the down right disregard of the forlorn hope of 4 years before.

Additionally, imagine "3 Lions on their shirt" ringing out EVERY YEAR!

I'm out.

100% no. Delayed gratification is much better. A major intl tournament every 2 years is fine. But maybe we're just a bunch of old farts.

Would like to see the home nations brought back, only on 'off' years where there is no WC or Euros.

This is a terrible idea.

I don't remember the home nations, seems unnecessary to me, we all play each other fairly often anyway.

Glad to see the current results, I definitely called bullshit when I read this earlier:

Quote from: BBC Football
A majority of fans would support a men's World Cup every two years instead of four, according to a survey commissioned by world football governing body Fifa.

A survey of fans commissioned by FIFA - Who'd have thunk it would show this result.

Apparently the there were four choices.

Every year
Every two years
Every three years
Every four years

Every four years was the clear fans favoured choice, however, FIFA aggregated the other three answers to declare that every two years was the favoured choice…

Of course they want it every year and with as many teams in it as possible.   

Lots of small backhanders is harder to find than big juicy ones.

Seems totally self indulgent and would devalue the competition completely.
