That was quick, was it set-up waiting for the announcement?

Yes, since 1967.

Fook! Qatar just bought a WC. FIFA is nothing but a bunch of corrupt bastards! The U.S. had by far the best bid.... :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry: :angry:

Two wonderful innovative decisions by FIFA which should both be roundly applauded.

Mind you after the events in Birmingham last night the decision process must have been made decidedly easier.

Beckham's closing speech was an embarrasment. Not only did he bring dead relatives into it, he can't even speak English properly. That f@@@@@g Prince had to bring his wedding into it, and Cameron was so condescending it was unreal. They got what they deserved.

If by innovative you mean shitloads of oil and gas money, then yes it was innovative.

I've also heard that the Pope is Catholic and one-legged ducks swim in circles.

I've been saying for yonks this would be the outcome, gutted that I never had a wedge on it.

The biggest plain brown envelopes talk loudest.

Personally, I'd have liked to see Oz getting 2022.

When it was announced Putin wasn't going everyone said they'd thrown in the towel.
I reckon he'd been tipped the wink that they'd got it.
This is a licence for the Russian Mafia to print money, and Sepp will get his %age. :(

Fifa must be taking bribes in oil nowadays then. In all seriousness it is a joke that Russia and Quatar get the competition

The decision was made a long time before those events.
Russia was always getting it.

arrh well bang goes my dream of seeing the World Cup live. even if I could afford to travel to Russia I wouldn't go there, as I value my life, and the great football nation of Qatar is not big enough to allow more than a dozen fans from each nation in to watch it live....fuck knows how much the tickets will be :o
I guess I'll do what the Scots do every WC...watch it on the telly.

That Jack Warner guy is as bent as they come. Fifa need total reform because at the minute the entire football world (other than the Russians and Quatarians) view them as an absolute joke. After England got conned in the last world cup they still ignored the pleas for goal line technology and now this, yet another nail in the coffin of the English game. We will struggle to qualify for 2018 and 2014 but that is an issue closer to home that needs to be addressed.

The international game is dead. It has been dieing for years and this is another nail in it.

I can see many top players not attending Qatar due to health issues etc.

I happen to agree with magicRAT on this. Russia would be the winners, and it's been "known" ever since they made their bid.

The Russian mafia is celebrating big time now.



I can understand Qatar got it with their ideas about new stadiums etc. But I had really hoped it would go to OZ.

Maybe they aircon the stadiums?

They have aircon in the open air in some places down there.

Still, it's going to be hot as hell, and boring as hell I am afraid.

Boring is correct. The tempo will be shockingly slow. Maybe this is the real life version of subbuteo?
