Open to debate at best. Certainly nothing wrong with the stimulus to the economy a one-off event would bring.
As I understand it, the evidence for the benefit economically of sport events is thin, but they are not overall a bad thing, and it is a shame that England didn’t get it.
If you are genuinely upset then please go to the Edinburgh Zoo Live Penguin Cam. It’s bloody brilliant
Oh the fun The Sun will now have burning Panaromic effigies of those leftie do-gooders at the truth-mongering beeb now
Was it something we said?
Who’d have thunk FIFA were the type to respond to bribes?
Man… Russian mafia and Qatari petro dollars =/… Where the fuck is Qatar located on the map anyway?
Oh thank god. It’s hard enough being someone who hates football when we DON’T host it.
hahaha this made me snort
Cameron as head of ‘the greenest Government ever’
should have been at Cancun. Another lost cause.
Pity the French could not save us with the Olympics
Apart from a blip in 1992, we’ve been a distinctly second rate footballing nation after winning the competition in 1966.
Why all the sour grapes from the media, let every nation that can manage it have a go at hosting the world cup at least once.
Is fifa corrupt from information available most likely, was the olympics bought to london with a few brown envelopes stuffed full of cash? you get the picture.
Sun headline: ”Fifa bungs Russia the World Cup”.
That’s probably true.
Absolute joke that Qatar is getting it four years later. It’s hardly even a country.
Damon, they want to bring in new money with Qatar. There are two Formula 1 Grand Prix races in the Middle East.
I guess a similar argument can be made for USA, South Korea / Japan a few years back. The tournaments were dull as spectacles. However, now the Japan and South Korea teams are a lot more watchable than some of the more dour European teams (Austria / Switzerland).
At least Russia do have a footballing legacy.
hahahahaha excellent. Their bribers are better than ours and with racism so allegedly prevalent in Russian football should make for a very interesting tournament. Shame I will miss it as I am booked on the mothership in 2012.
Going to join your friends on the Hale-Bopp comet Dave Bones?
Wibble, I don’t have a problem with Russia getting it. They are a footballing country.
What I would hope would happen, and it could if the Russians were just prepared to subsidise it from their oil and gas billions, was if they announced that this would be a fan friendly games and made it clear that provision would be made to house tens of thousands of ordinary football fans in affordable accomodation and have wage packet friendly ticket prices and transport.
Which could make going to Russia in 2018 a fantasic experience for travelling fans. Camping and travelling about by train.
As for Qatar …. well, I can’t think there’d be much to do there for your regular footie fan.
Although this guy seems to think it could be good.
Open air stadiums ….. with air conditioning (don’t tell Sunny).
