A captains wild card pick could be replaced by a selection committee like with cricket etc? taking the pressure off an individual. I think it would be a very sad day when one of Englands acknowledged top shooters potentially missed a worlds team place because of illness or injury and was unable to attend the Euros but had won the GP series, Showdown and BFTA champs for example.
I appreciate its unlikely but the possibility could easily be removed?
Just another though to throw in the mix, how about if an 8 man team was chosen from say:
Top 3 from GP series
BFTA Champs Winner
Top 3 Euros
A fairer representation perhaps?
When I was 5 I wanted to be like George Best
At 10 I wanted to be Nigel Mansell
At 40 I wanted to be like Tiger Woods
At 50 I want to be like Gilly
Just shows how life can kick you in the nads
