    Pissed off about this in a big way. All political voting the facilities we can provide would be far better than those dodgy cunts.

    Earliest possible time football could come home is 2026.....:tut:

    I think it goes some way towards showing what kind of culture exists within FIFA. What exactly were the strong points in Russia's bid?

    Totally agree all aspects of our bid seemed stronger. That doc didnt reflect badly on us, it did however on fifa. The fact they are not going to investigate the facts provided but the IOC are just show the levels of corruption.

    The decisions today are a fucking disgrace. No justification at all. If we lost to Spain I can except that but to Russia is fucking terrible. As for Qatar after Russia, that just rubs it in. They might as well advertise how much the will sell their bids for.

    I wonder if our black players will enjoy mixing with the locals? Apparently Russian warmth and hospitality is legendary.

    Just goes to prove that your bid has nothing to do with the outcome. Our bid was the best by a country mile by all accounts, fuck you sepp blatter!

    We were in the running for 2022 and missed out too. pretty disappointing. Qatar ffs (n) They said they are going to have to build an air conditioned stadium because it gets up to 50 degrees there pfft!

    Just goes to show how fucked up the decision making is. Seol, Japan & the US have all recently hosted a world cup imo Austrailia should really have won hands down. Qatar dont have enough people watching sport to be able to reuse the stadiums afterwards so what a waste of money...

    Qatar is a bigger joke.

    It's half the size of Wales, has two or three actual cities and a population less than a million.

    It's a fucking desert. Illegal to drink or be drunk too.

    50 degrees average. They have to build air conditioned stadiums.

    But, they're incredibly rich from gas and oil.

    Bit of a coincidence no?
