tony gale's mic Posted December 1, 2010 Share Posted December 1, 2010 Surprised there's been no thread about this. I'm not just saying this because I'm from England but if all was fair England would get the vote for 2018. Spain had it in '82 AND theirs is a joint bid with Portugal which Blatter supposedly banned (and which will take away one qualifying spot from Europe). Russia is a huge country, ridiculous to get around and a country which still openly boos black players which play in its leagues. The fact Qatar is a favourite for 2022 shows what a farce this whole thing is. There is no way on this earth that on MERIT anyone should choose QATAR as a place to host a World Cup. I mean seriously, wtf. It would also take the mick a bit if USA, Japan or S Korea got it so soon after hosting it. I'd love to see the Aussies host that one. Current oddschecker odds: http://www.oddschecker.com/football/internationals/world-cup/2018-host http://www.oddschecker.com/football/internationals/world-cup/2022-host Qatar are favourites for 2022 right now. For me if Qatar win that race then the international game will have plumbed depths it's never reached before. Amid all the allegations of bribery etc, if the 2022 Cup still goes to the bid with almost zero going for it, a lot going against it and a ton of oil money behind it then it would be a damning indictment on FIFA.
