In all seriousness though, how many voted to pull out just because they don't like the England team?

Do people really care that much about Putin?

I was gutted England didn't win the World Cup. I also know better than most the corruption and greed involved in Sport Management in general and FeeFar in particular, however part of the remit in selecting a nation is not just the ability to host it (otherwise it would only ever be hosted in England, Italy or Germany) but also how to best 'spread' the game. Hence the multiple world cups in the USA and the recent one in South āfrica. To that end Russia with vast population and network of linked nations is not such a surprising choice.

The shocker is Quatar. Population of what a million? Temperature of 50 centigrade, no infrastructure, no players, no league. Utterly unsuitable on every ground other than financial

See my post above, but also realise many nations see the global monster that is the premier league and think if they have that why do they need a world cup

Be a mistake for any country to pull out of the World Cup because of Russia's political and military actions. The World Cup is about sport. And I think it will be useful for Russians to see a lot of teams with black players. The World Cup isn't about the host nation but the football.

Nope. As many of us have said, all these have been corruptly awarded. To start making moral choices - well, it might be a rather small pool of countries who could hold their heads up high.

Russia at least plays the bloody game. Its Qatar that gets me.

Not sure the Vatican could hold such an event. They have offered to co-host the u16sn WC I understand though. Matches to be played in Italy, accommodation in various shared dorms in the Vatican buildings.

Sure, I don't doubt it, I'm convinced you can go to any country in the world and most people are alright, it's not the average Russian I'm worried about it's Putin and Co. I don't care what anyone says they're a right dodgy bunch. Our politicians are bad but the Russians take it to a different level. I just don't trust them to run a fair and honest tournament and to keep politics out of it.
