Qualifying for the world cup is a bit of a joke really. They need to sort the ranking points system out so teams don't have to play 10 pointless qualifiers and also work a system that means we don't have 4 crappy European countries whilst Argentina could miss out.

A proposal along the lines of the following:

Winner and Runners up of previous WC - 2 Spaces
Winners and Runner up of Euros - 2 Spaces
Winners and Runners up of Copa America - 2 Spaces
Winners and Runners up of African Cup of Nations - 2 Spaces
Winner of Confederations Cup - 1 Space

Then each Continent is allotted a certain number of places based upon either ranking points and countries available to enter. Then have a 2 legged knockout stage with the higher ranking teams entering at a later stage like they do for the FA Cup.

To Qualify from Euros currently have 54 teams competing. Those who have won the group this time round automatically enter at a later stage.

Edit - Confusing myself now I don't see how it is fair that Northern Ireland will qualify yet Argentina probably wont, primarily due to the strength of the South America qualifying group
