Here’s a pro­posal: how about a North At­lantic League Cup played be­tween the top four club sides from each of Por­tu­gal, the Nether­lands, Scot­land and Bel­gium? UEFA re­fused per­mis­sion for a North At­lantic League, but they didn’t veto a North At­lantic League Cup. Those four coun­tries all need to cre­ate tro­phies that can at­tract some big­ger au­di­ences – imag­ine Rangers vs Ajax, Celtic vs Sport­ing and Aberdeen vs Porto. Some would call it a fake tro­phy, but any­thing can be con­sid­ered a fake tro­phy if you want to get all ex­is­ten­tial about it. Also, what about a Welsh Gold Cup con­tain­ing Welsh Premier League teams and un­der-20 teams from the Scot­tish and English Premier Leagues? Rory Fyfe Smith, Conwy, North Wales
