    Russia got it because they have been campaigning for this for over three years. We started 18 months ago. Most of their, and Spains votes were sealed before we even started. We arrogantly believed that we could do what we did in the Olympics, wait and wait then peak at the end. We did that, but it was way, way too late. Hopefully they've learnt a lesson and come 2030 we can actually get are a*ses in gear.

    yep i do agree. how can you give it to russia who have nuffin in place. they have to build 13 new stadiums. plus they have issues with racisesm. i did wonder why abramvic was there looking so smug. its all about money plus the champions league final held there was the lowest attendince and the hotels there or a joke.

    and qatar get the 2022 world cup. it was deemed high risk there a few months ago

    is it true platini is 1 of the chairmen there now.

    this just smells of bungs. with all the qatar oil men there who r rich

    When pushed on the subject of his earnings by a reporter ...he smiled and said ,,,,, he dont get a salary from FIFA but compensation ... ...................Smug bas*ard ..

    Uefa President Michel Platini ....how much he earn ? .....

    Its a handicap having everything already in place Lought ...... Its one of the reasons we got the Olympic Games..

    ........13 stadiums you say ? .......average cost of each? ...Hotels , transport links etc .. plenty of scope for backhanders there ... Like I said ..it dont pay to have everything already in place ...

    Well let's hope the a*se dosen't fall out of Russia & Qatar in the next 8-12 years. Qatar that hotbed of football fanaticism and history and greats of the game. Russia that shining beacon of honesty & openess. You know guys I can see Russia failing in their ability to complete even with 8 years to go. The country is a shambles and so vast that I really wonder if they can get the infrastructure and other vital plans in place ? Qatar has the money but will the ordinary fan be able to afford to travel & stay there ? Of course it's all about bungs & back scratching. In some ways I'm glad England has failed because we will no longer have to grovel to fools like Slap Blatter & corrupt idiots like Jack Warner. These clueless morons, and others like them, govern the game and yet again have shown total disregard for the average fan by making sure their own pockets are lined to the detriment of the beautifull game . . . . .

    fair play to the Qataris damn them - they asked themselves how do we get hold of this World Cup thing ? And unlike us bloody well did it - us who this morning were seriously - yes seriously - expecting to get the tournament - two votes - two votes - one of em our own !!

    Unbelievable - I am having a 'Moment you heard Jack Kennedy was shot' epiphany

    If there's one thing other nations will always agree on in football, it's to hate the English

    Sorry two things, Take the cash.
