For anyone interested in the ladies soccer, Canada and the US ladies under nineteen have both qualified for the word cup.Pretty good going .They both did very well last time around. Wondered if Scotland or England have any ladies teams.

Well I guess for the next wee while I will be an English fan with my husband. He will be glued to the TV tomorrow for the world cup game. I wish Scotland had made it. Who do you think will be the big winners this time?

A good outsider is the Czech Republic, at the moment they are 14/1, I,v got 20 on them, plus 20 for France to beat England 2-1.

SPL hatch Euro scheme
Plans to field Scottish sides in a European league have resurfaced in a scheme that would see top SPL teams leave the domestic league at Christmas.
"We're trying to develop a league that would start in January and would include the top two or three from our league," said SPL chairman Lex Gold.
"We would run separate competitions. It would be a split where they would play from here but in another league."
Holland, Belgium, Portugal, Norway and Denmark are said to be interested.
"We are still in there trying to influence Uefa in terms of European competitions," added Gold.
"The teams playing in Europe would still participate in the Scottish Cup and League Cup," continued Gold.
"And at the beginning of the season they would revert to the domestic league and start again.
"Obviously there are complications. We've had good relations with the Dutch and the Belgians but the Dutch league is now doing better than it was and they are slightly less outward looking than they were, though they're still approachable. So there's work to be done there.
"Scandinavia also have set up a separate competition outwith Uefa just now, which makes it more difficult, but Uefa are still interested in this as a form of pilot.
"I always said my variant on the Atlantic League was to have a pilot study based on the northern leagues and Portugal which should be done under the Uefa umbrella."

Im afraid Im a die hard Isobel, I can still remember the home internationals. And in a more serious note, I do not think England have got a good enough team to do any good in this competition, but I do think they will fair very well in the next world cup, when a lot of their younger player will have a bit more experience.

Ian you sound like Jim .He is always the optimist, a real die hard fan. He feels the English side would be very lucky to go very far in this competition but he will be glued to the TV. cheering them on.If they dont make it he will still watch all the other games he is just a real sports fan.

England had a good 50 minutes of the game then ran out of steam, but all in all a good game, plus I beat the bookie.
On Scottish teams joining a european league I think its a great idea, the more different styles of football, the better for the national team. I would also like to see an under 19s european league.

Ian Im glad you didn't lose your money but I thought England really had it in the bag. Could not believe it two goals in the extra time.

Yes England did do well Isobel, but thats as good as they can get, Owen had a bad game and Scholes ( who I think is the best player england have got ) ran out of steam. And putting Hesky on was the nail in the coffin, even arbroath would,nt take him for free. I think the group winners will be- Spain,France,Italy and Czech Republic, the runners up- Greece, England, Sweden and Germany.

Yes weementor I would give it my support.
It involves the top two teams in the SPL, invariably Rangers and Celtic, going off to form the new league midway through the domestic season along with 12 other teams from Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Portugal and Holland although it is believed the Dutch are cooling on the plan. The rest of the clubs left in the SPL would compete for the domestic championship without the Old Firm for the rest of the season with the winners gaining automatic qualification to the UEFA Cup.
