Google translator only gives you the correct words in the selected language - It doesn't give you the correct vocabulary and context. However, seeing as i speak spanish aswell, I think I can help and give a mini lessonhave no fear

"Pero es la verdad"

Pero = but
es = it is
la = the
verdad = truth

"But it's the truth" is what was said...

What are you talking about?? There is no Italian on the present 24-member FIFA Executive Board which will select 2018 and 2022. See list above.

A confederation has to wait two turns in order to host another WC.

Therefore England 2018 and Spain 2026 is not possible.

These people making those 40-50 year lists have way too much time on their hands. They're not EVEN going to be around after 5 WCs -- NOR would their picks be anything close to what FIFA will pick.

Go-ahead for new Everton stadium (thanks to Brilliant in the UK forums for posting)

By Roger Blitz and Tom Braithwaite

Published: June 10 2008 04:03 | Last updated: June 10 2008 04:03

Sir Terry Leahy, Everton fanatic and season-ticket holder, received the go-ahead on Monday to flaunt his love for the Premier League club by helping it fund a new 50,000-seater stadium.

The chief executive of Tesco, in partnership with Bill Kenwright, the theatre impresario and chairman of the Merseyside club, won the approval of Knowsley councillors for their joint £400m ($789m) development in Kirkby, five miles outside Liverpool. Knowsley is the fifth most deprived borough in the country.

EDITOR’S CHOICE
Tesco under pressure from US union - Jun-04Tesco to buy RBS share in finance division - Jun-01Tesco wins Dobbies court case - May-15Shoppers ‘positive’ on Tesco’s US stores - May-12West Coast takes Tesco to court over Dobbies - May-12Tesco drops estate agency plans - May-01Tesco’s largesse amounts to more than £120m towards the £200m cost of the new stadium but it has signed away any rights to own the stadium or the club itself.

In return, the supermarket chain is allowed to build a 55,000 square metre store for a town with a captive market of 40,000 people. As Tesco finds building new supermarkets an ever more arduous task, given its dominant position in UK retail, it has turned to complex regeneration schemes to secure the support of local residents and councils.

It bought up the town centre from Development Securities in April and will develop a retail centre for 50 shops alongside its superstore.

Some schemes have met opposition from local residents concerned at the scale of the plans and the likely local disruption from construction work. But in the case of the new Everton stadium, it is neighbouring councils such as Liverpool, concerned that a large retail development will draw away shoppers, that have protested loudest.

They want the plan to be “called in” by the government, a move that the club has warned ministers would delay the project by a year and thereby jeopardise it.

The project has plenty of other detractors, not least those Everton fans unwilling to sanction the club moving even a relatively short distance from Goodison Park in Liverpool, Everton’s home since 1892.

Sheena Ramsey, Knowsley Council’s chief executive, said opponents were failing to see the bigger picture. “This is much more than about a retail offer or the provision of Premier League football. This is about the fundamental regeneration of one of the most deprived areas in the country,” she said.

The club, whose main shareholders are Mr Kenwright, Robert Earl, founder of the Planet Hollywood restaurant chain, and Liverpool businessman Jon Woods, is stumping up £78m for the stadium costs through asset sales and borrowing.

Everton have visions of staging international finals at their new home and have a stadium design that allows for expanding the capacity.

Tesco has allied its supermarket building with sports stadia in the past, working with Wigan Warriors and Warrington Wolves rugby league clubs on two separate projects, and last month it secured approval to take part in a similar scheme in St Helens.

Michael Kissman from Tesco’s corporate affairs department insists that the Kirkby scheme is a “once-in- a-generation opportunity” for the town.

Nearly 3 southern hemisphere WCs in a row? R u crazy? After 2010 and 2014, FIFA has met its obligation to stage it in the 5 continents. (And especially Oceania, by itself, 'no longer exists' since the 'Oceanic' countries now play in the Asian confederation.) So, Oz's chances for a WC I'd say would be starting in 2030. Not earlier.

That's a cracking design for a new stadium; 4 stands, enclosed. Perfect. I'd like to see Spurs build something like this (but a bit bigger!)

The "People's Club" thing on the side looks a bit naff though.
