If I call them all leagues am I right, All though I do think a nations division has a certain ring to it

It's explained very well on the UEFA website. There is a video about half way down this page which explains the playoff situation. Pictures are sometimes easier to understand than words.;)

There are four "Leagues". Each "League" is split into four "Groups". 

There are no "Divisions", "Premierships", "Championships" or any other pish like that.

I don't know what you are asking me.

Have you watched the video? It only takes a couple of minutes.

I still call the "Championship" "The 2nd division" just to annoy the youngsters.

Do you agree that a league D team must go to the finals?and a league C team and a league B team based on the group qualifiers and each Leagues playoff , leaving the final place decided between teams that have not won their groups.

That is my interpretation of it, which is what I said earlier.

Yes, which is why I said this about a week ago.;)

One of the teams from League D is guaranteed a place at Euro2020. There has to be at least one team from each Nations League at the Euro2020 finals

Going by that link above the draw for the 2020 Finals is in December ‘19, the play-offs are in March ‘20 and additional Finals draw in April (if required) 😕🤷🏼‍♂️

They might have to rearrange the draw depending on what happens in the playoffs. One example could be if Scotland and Hungary are both in the League C playoffs. If either of Scotland or Hungary qualify they are guaranteed at least two home games in the group stages. They won't know if either or any of those two teams have qualified until March 2020.

That bit is quite complicated. I don't think they have explained how they are going to do that bit. If they have, I haven't seen it.

I don't understand why they couldn't of just made the qualifying groups for the European championships larger which would of ensured that more games needed to be played, they could of had groups of 12 or more and had the top 4 or 5 go through from each group or something along that lines.

It's adding another layer of interest to kick off the new competition.   Just like some of us, there must be a few folk in league* D perked up.

 

*(Probably first time I've got that right. I hope.)

The teams in League D (the better ones anyway) will be loving the Nations League. 

This is their best ever shot at getting to a major tournament.

Yes, that's what their top seeds will be thinking, and so too  will the 'giant killers' behind them.   What a chance.
