The odds from Willhill:

Paris 1.33
London 4.00
New York 13.00
Madrid 13.00
Moscow 34.00

Actually I'd like Madrid to host the OG more than London because of the bad press for Athens 04 from many british papers and also because it will be more fun, the weather will be better etc but I don't know how serious threat could ETA pose..

I think you're all voting for NYC, MAD, MOSX and LON because it's quite obvious that Paris has got this one hands down.........

New York would be the worst olympics ever.
Laughable. First of all, the area where the proposed Olympic venues and housing is in desperate need of a rejuvination and second, you are rediculously stupid and arrogant.

Well, i still think it is between London and Paris with the possibility of New York pipping them to the post.

Moscow - Iwould like to see the Olympics over there, would be very interesting. Furthermore, to get out of USA and Europe for a change.

Its been said, though, that if thge voting got strategic then New York would win.

Its so close that a big European City may go out first (only New York is not European). If New York does not go out first (this poll says moscow would be first, but it is not authoritative) then it is likely whichever european cities goes will transfer their votes (per se) to New York, since if it goes to America then Europe may be able to bid again.

So it is possible, in order to bid another day, that the first Euro city to be dropped will support New York, and therefore New York will stay above last place all the way and then win.

The alternative is if the Euro countries switch their votes to Europ cities, but that is of less strategic interest.

I hope London wins, it would be unfortunate if New York won because it was 'not-European.' Obviously if New York does win, there is no reason it didn't do so based on its own merits, i just think voting strategy should be considered.

Well, I certainly hope London does not get it. It just does not have the transport infrastructure and no scenery worth seeing that people have not seen before. There is no natural beauty and the weather is crap. Unpleasant and overcrowded already. A nightmare to work in... The Olympics and the associated construction would just disrupt the city more.

Yet another pig ignorant comment from an obviously totally pig ignorant individual. Im sick to death of idiot comments like this, especially aimed at the UK or London....

I´ve voted for Madrid, because I think that Madrid is the best prepared for this event.

I'd like to see NYC get it. Opportune time for the world's greatest city to shine. If not, then Paris hopefully.

I know Zenith, Im sick of it too. People rarely know what they are talking about and base their views on old 1950's films and tired old stereotypes.

It never occurs to people that the Olympics in London would be a great opportunity to put right some of things they complain about. Like improvements in transport.

I am currently having an argument with stupid aussies who think somehow that Australia will overtake the UK in population and that the UK is full of racists who don't let in foreigners, whereas Australia is far more multi-cultural than London.

It gets on my tits something chronic.

You could just as well be talking about NY or Moscow with those statements. Even more so in the case of NY.

If you south africans hate London so much why the hell do you all migrate over here. Piss off home if you don't like it
