    International Football and World Club Football forums

    Any chance of this being accommodated or even discussed again?

    In the International section we have an Ireland Forum and a World Cup Forum. Could the World Cup one be renamed "Other Countries" or something.

    For obvious reasons the forum doesn't seem to do much business outside World Cup years but it could easily become a home for conversations about the likes of the Copa America or for the usual Irish fascination with England.

    Done. I'm not mad about the title though.<br><br>I've also moved Archived Match Threads under Ireland, and rearranged both International and Other.

    Thanks. Which title are you not mad about?

    I thought the idea was to rename the 'World Cup' forum, not create a new one, and just use that for all the non-Ireland international stuff. I was thinking it could could be renamed 'Other International Football' or something to that effect, just to differentiate it from the Ireland and club stuff.

    I think 'World Club Football' might be clearer than 'World League Football' also... but could use some input from some of the others though. I'll pm the few who were involved in the suggestions just in case they haven't spotted this thread.

    Fully agree with moving the archived match threads into the Ireland folder for what it's worth.

    Maybe rename "World Cup" as "International Football", "Other Countries" as "Club Football" and then the Ireland stuff is perfect as is?

    Just my tuppence anyway!

    Actually, I see there's a "World League Football" as well; I'd missed that.

    So I'd suggest -

    IRELAND
    Ireland (with sub-forums - Fans' Forum; Archived Match Threads)

    OTHER FOOTBALL
    Football Feeds
    Football History
    Women's Football
    Club Football
    International Football

    OTHER STUFF
    Other Sports
    Current Affairs
    Entertainment
    Marketplace
    Off topic

    Move the A Championship up to CLUBS, on the same level as Premier Division, First Division and Other Clubs. Delete Other Countries (no posts anyway). Maybe dump the Euro 2008 Predictions League threads into International Football as it's a dead forum anyway. And move Other Sports out of OTHER FOOTBALL and into OTHER STUFF.

    Maybe?

    This forum is actually titled 'International' though, not Ireland, if you know what I mean. That's why I think the renamed World Cup thread should remain in here.

    Should it not be moved to 'Leagues' as opposed to 'Clubs'?

    Agree with all of that.

    I'd change it to "Ireland" though. Cos one of the main topics on foot.ie is the national team. Then keep all other football together.

    Makes more sense actually, yep.

    Sounds good assuming it can be done. Mr. Pedantic out in force now but I'd be inclined to call the section and forum 'Republic of Ireland' instead of just Ireland too. Would have more of an international soccer look to it. Just throwing it out there.

    Can put it to a vote I guess - though I'd stick with "Ireland" as nobody actually calls the team "Republic of Ireland". (Except maybe Gather Round)

    It's usually Republic of Ireland in print I think, media print at least or anything official, bar our crest strangely enough. Obviously it's not really practical to call them that in every day conversation. Just 'Ireland' has a rugby look to it I think but this is way down my list of potential changes.

    my two cents worth is that "Ireland" could refer to the international side, or the league. Republic of Ireland refers exclusively to the international side
    All goals, yellow and red cards tweeted in real time on twitter and facebook

    Where are all the old threads gone ?
    Forget about the performance or entertainment. It's only the result that matters.

    So, in summary, this is what's proposed if dahamsta & the rest are agreeable? This is basically how the forum home page would appear:

    Leagues
    -Premier & First Divisions
    -A Championship (*move from Other Football*)
    -Irish League
    -Underage Leagues
    -Intermediate Leagues
    -Junior League
    -Schoolboys

    Clubs
    -Premier Division
    -First Division
    -Other Clubs

    Ireland (or Republic of Ireland) International Team (*instead of the current 'International' title*)
    -Ireland (or Republic of Ireland)

    Other Football
    -Football Feeds
    -Football History
    -Women's Football
    -Club Football (*renamed from World League Football*)
    -International Football (*renamed and moved World Cup forum*)

    Other Stuff
    -Other Sports (*move from Other Football*)
    -Current Affairs
    -Entertainment
    -Marketplace
    -Off Topic
    I think Stu's suggestions would make it much neater and make more sense overall, but if it's too much hassle maybe we can just fix the international and club football forums. Maybe there could be some complications in terms of the forums to which the moderators are currently assigned too, I don't know.

    I missed this. Dang. Love the moves DeL. And all for calling the team "Ireland" tbh. Can't stand references to the "Republic". I know the why I just don't like or want the why.

    Oh yeah I'd never refer to them as the Republic either, just think it gives it a more official look and international football feel. Probably better off leaving well enough alone though if there's some resistance. Credit PS and backstothewall for the suggestions, I'm just the guy plaguing dahamsta
