I'd prefare to be in with the irish though, that's where my blood lies.

EDIT:

If you don't have any ideas on what the comp should be about, I'd propose it to be all around the idea of the country you're in.

Government, lifestyles, environment and people etc.

It is an administrative division, as are England, Scotland and Northern Ireland. They only have separate international teams because they all formed international teams before FIFA formed, therefore FIFA couldn't disallow them entry.

No, I proved my point exactly, Wales, is a constituent country, which means, it is part of other small countries to make a larger one, thusly removing itself from said list. It would be like, calling each on of the fifty states a country.

In a sense it is a country, but on the the grand scale of things, it's the United Kingdom, it's just technicalities.

scousertommy
07-04-2006, 08:08 PM
^Your arguments both hinge on "just technicalities". Exactly how grand is a grand scale, anyway?

What makes no sense is that the Republic Of Ireland - a wholly independent, or "free" state, if you will - is lumped in with Scotland, which, like Wales, is only a constituent country of the UK.

Well, whatever, I'm done complaining now. You should call this the S&L World Cup though. :)
