At least if it's in Qatar we won't have to worry about Decepticon attacks, they already happened.ScottyBoy wrote:I agree. Russia are odds on favourites to get it, but for supporters every aspect for of the prospect of going to Russia would be a nighmare.
Common sense says it has to go to England. Due to its facitlities and the small size of the country with good transport links its probably the best suited country in the whole world to hold a world cup.
I'm all for England getting it, just as long as they promise to expect to win and do the usual
I've not heard as much about 2022 but I would imagine Australia look pretty strong.
But obviously its Fifa were talking about... so get the camels ready for Quatar 2022
Korea 2022 may be difficult as it may well be a smoldering crater by then..

For 2022 the safe option is the USA. Not much would have to be built really and we have massive stadiums. We could probably break our record of highest attendance. Still probably won't come here though. Oddsmakers have us in 3rd place.
I'd like to see it in Australia. They did a good job with the 2000 Olympics and I don't believe much needs to be built.
I was looking at Qatar's bid and they have to build 7 from from the ground up and the others need to be expanded. Luckily they'd have a lot of time.

Apparently England were knocked out in the first round of voting. Not a big surprise.... If you expose corruption and prove committee members taking bribes they arnt going to vote for you. The people allowed to vote and the reasons why they vote are simply wrong.
The 2022 tournament will then be hosted by Quatar. This bid is more of a stunt to showcase this regions economic wealth rather than to spread football culture in that region. They will build nine new stadiums for their tournament and then tear them down after the tournament. Thats says alot about the legacy their tournament will leave behind in their country.
With the 2010 World Cup held in Africa, 2014 in Brazil, 2018 in Russia and 2022 in Quatar i feel sorry for the supporters. All of these places are not the most accessible and are very expensive to fly to for the majority of people in the world.
