please note that this is just my personal thoughts, i didnt shoot the euros or any other majors so qualification was never an issue for me personally. I do think its amazing that somebody like andy calpin will not be in the team given his consistency. My comments are not born out of favoritism for andy, i know him and i like him but i also think that by looking at his consistency over the season he should be in the team.
Yes but whoever picked the wildcard picks would have to be able to justify them... you need something to fall back on when you do that so you can be seen to be impartial and fair. Whatever measure you use, there will always be an issue.
