While I quite like the idea of giving the minnows/no hopers something to play for, other than just fulfilling their current obligation to turn up and get spanked at least 5-0 every game, it can't be right that someone like Kazakhstan (or whoever wins the bottom league) gets a Euro spot over a team who finishes second in their qualifying group.
Friendlies are dreary pointless affairs, but how many are there in a year to warrant such a wholesale change? I suppose they need to be seen to be doing something at UEFA. It's just a shame that the real issues in football get shunted down the pecking order in favour of schemes likes this.
I was heading for the 1992 Olympics for Judo before injury.
