The latest FIFA idea of incoming president Gianni Infantino is to expand the World Cup to 48 teams. An already bloated tournament would then become even more stultifyingly dull.
So to hell with qualifying. And with it, forget four year cycles - this can be done annually in about six weeks.
There are currently 211 members of FIFA with men's teams. (Ladies, you can have your own personalised insane tournament later.)
This proposal harks back to the original cup - the now maligned FA Cup.
First, we need a couple of pre-qualifying rounds. The bottom 70 teams by FIFA ranking are drawn at random to play, winners progressing to the second pre-qualifying round.
The 35 match winners are joined by the next 61 ranking places, making 96 teams. Another draw, with the 48 match winners progressing to the first round proper.
The top 80 ranked teams join the party, from here a seven round straight knock-out competition (128-64-32-16-8-4-2)
What's not to like? Don't worry about the fans - FIFA don't really care for them anyway, except for the cash. Corporate sponsors can fill the stadia with competition winners.
