idiot idea.

will wreck havoc on PL fixtures. Can't see PL suspending play for 6 weeks for the tourney. So squads with lots of players who go deep may have to play some matches short-handed.

I wouldn't put money on that.

I can easily see the PL starting the season progressively earlier in the 2019/20, 20/21 and 21/22 seasons. By this point you are looking at the league starting in July and going up to Novemeber (4 months with 18 weekends) season resumes in January and runs until mid May (another 4 and a half months with 19 weekends) it could be feasible will be an absolute ****** for players in the WC but FIFA can argue essentially there is an extra month break as the season is starting one month earlier and the tournament is 2 months with no tournament in the summer they still have more time - not sure it really works like that but still...

It will need an agreement RE other international fixtures as there really wouldn't be any room for friendliest etc. The biggest hurdle would be cup competitions, European clubs would have to suck it but wouldn't be surprised to see the domestic competitons potentially suspended for a year - or at least the League cup with FA Cup spread further across the season. Would be a nightmare mind you and would not want to be the one trying to organise it!

Al in all its a massive cluster**** and whoever decided on Qatar needs to be shot.

here is what I see happening.

- 4 week break. (1 week before and through round of 16). This would mean 3 matchdays need to be moved.

Here is what I would expect

- 1 additional Wednesday fixture after christmas
- remove an international break week after christmas
- 4th League cup moved up a few weeks and semifinals moved to one leg
- season starts 1 week early

Compressing the season further is not an option since standard Premier contract dictates minimum period of continous holiday. PFA would need to approve and I doubt they would.

Winter is the only option. You can't have a World Cup when it is 120f degrees outside of the stadium. 10,000 Icelandics would die.

Should be boycotted due to the death of migrant workers who are building the stadiums in horrific conditions. I think sport should be apolitical but in this instance going to the World Cup in Qatar gives tacit approval to the death of the workers as clear and direct collateral.

According to the Spanish press they are urgently reviewing whether to bring the number of teams up to 48 at this tournament rather than wait until 2026.

You can have it the Summer if they have Air conditioned stadiums which is how their bid was presented and won originally

Once the air conditioned stadiums were then ruled too expensive (as if Fifa didnít know that already) that surely voided their bid as the first rule of a World Cup is itís a Summer tournament. They havenít adhered to the bid criteria ffs

Fifa delegates took money for votes on this, itís so bloody obvious but no one seems to be interested. Unless further hands have now been greased

I think you would not do yourself much harm dropping a few quid on China to host 2030.
Russia got this tournament and Qatar the next because their businesses are major FIFA sponsors. US (et al) gets 2026 and China will get the one after that.

FIFA are (and have always been) for sale.

And if you don't go, their death would have been for nothing. It's a tough call.

Scotland still won't qualify.

32 teams is the right number for lots of reasons. It's the allocation of teams from different parts of the world that is wrong.

Agreed but who do you really eliminate. Maybe add one to South american and Europe and take 1 away from Africa and CONCACAF.

But reducing some regions would take away from global interest.

If anything, I would consider going back to 24 (or even 28). Make qualifying more important.
