Germany supported England's 96 Euro bid and in return England promised to support our 06 wc bid. But then England decided to launch its own bid.

Europe also has the worst crowd troubles out of any continent. Europe clearly does deserve to miss out for 16 years in my opinion. Football continually is tarnished because of hooligans in Europe.

And the fact you have the best leagues, the best players, best clubs, means you should be able to cope without a world cup in Europe for 16 years.


As for the world cup 2014, if Brazil is bidding, its a done deal Brazil will get it in my opinion. Especially if Australia makes a bid. South American confederation has alot(perhaps too much) influence.

Not quite correct. England bid for both EC96 and WC98. So did France. There was an agreement that England would withdraw from the 98 bid and France would withdraw from the EC96.

The FA decided that we'd staked our claim on the next European World Cup bid there was never any formal agreement with any other European nation.

Had the FA been quicker to organise (in hindsight, a futile hope) they should have been able to put a bid together long before Germany.

I don't know if it's a credible source but I think it's safe to say that the behavior was a bit weird.

And in Brazil the mothers of famous players are regularly kidnapped.

Hooliganism used to be a problem but these days you can go to a game w/o any sort of fear. I don't know if the same can be said about football games in South America.

That's because European leagues are the most famous and most widely followed leagues. It's the same thing in politics. We know everything about American politics simply because it's the most powerful country.

Ever read any stories about what some African players have to go thru if they mess up?

From what I'v heard the trouble between clubs like Boca Jnr's and River Plate is far worse than anything you see in western europe these days.

Yeah, that's a credible website but the author missed out the agreement with France which was more important than people often think.

The FA didn't use much common sense and really ought to have pulled out before the voting took place.

Still, 2018 looks rosy.

I hope you didn't go to great lengths to convert those temps into Fahrenheit because there might be about one country in the world that still uses that scale.
