Bubomb, before u start writing ur b*llsh*it if u actually read the bleeding thread u would realise that he was referring to english people in general and i happen to be the one asking him to clarify his position which he tried to do.

and i never big anything up if it is not good enough so i really don't know what made u want to post up this crap that came out of ur ass.

when ur saying 'YOU' Thats not me ur talking about there are you? i would doubt that as i give credit where its due, i never said things about facists and racists, i think that was someone else.

about the hooligan thing, i thing hooliganism is far worse in countries such as Italy, Turkey, Poland and South America

I've been to countries on every continent (except Africa), so....what was your point again?? You could spend your whole life in a concrete dungeon with only a t.v and you'd still be able to relate to what I said in my earlier comment.

What exactly do you find wrong with my comment mate?? Oh, it said Spain wasn't the best at something...oh dear, that was rather bad of me wasn't it...

Lets take a look at what I said:

"Spain is deffinitely not foremost capable of hosting an event of this calibre!"
-true, and even you must acknowledge this. I'm not saying Spain couldn't host the WC, it most certainly can, but it is not FOREMOST capable when compared to countries like England. You only have to take a look at the poll to see who most people think is foremost capable of holding the WC in 2018.

"England, despite it's very unpredictable climate and weather conditions, is far more suited to holding sporting events then Spain, for lots of deifferent reasons, such as bigger budgets"
-Yes

"better organisation"
Deffinitely yes

"more support"
Well, this one might be close, I'm sure most of Spain would give their support for a WC so, who knows...

"higher number of higher quality stadiums"
yes, especially when these new stadiums are built, and there are plenty of plans for new and upgraded stadiums that will be implemented before 2018.

"and a severe lack of racist football supporters when compared to Spain"
When compared to Spain, YES. I'm not saying England doesn't have it's racists, but thanks to large campaigns, government help, lots of effort, and a good atmosphere in England, racism in English football has basically been wiped out, unlike in Spain, where I'm sad to say, it is still quite rampant.

So, what was it you objected to again....??

What happen with hooliganism?
Also Spain has a lot of projects for new stadia.

"high number of high quality stadiums": Well, if you're talking about the new ones...But England haven't the superb legend stadiums

In my opinion it would be a mistake to hold a WC in Australia. For one thing, it's in the southern hemisphere which is too far off the beaten track. When 90% of the worlds population lives in the northern hemisphere, why have an event of this much interest down there? Secondly, as we saw in the Sydney Olympics, the time zones are prohibitive for the majority of Television viewers. Again, when the most fervent football viewers are in Europe and north/south America, why have the event televised from a location which is anywhere from 6-13 time zones different?! Doesn't make sense to me.

Most TV viewers in America heard the Sydney Olympic results on the internet before they viewed them on TV. I rest my case.

Australia has 3 different time zones, so it would not be a that much of a problem so supposedly 90% of the world. BTW time zones are longitudinal based. So East Asia/Australia have the same time zone. WC in Japan/Korea would be the same time zone as it were in Australia. You are forgetting that FIFA likes to spread the game to Asia, over 50% of the world population, so another WC in the region would likely go to Australia, but not until 2018 I feel, at least.

Brasil has to build & remodel stadiums and its infrastructure if they want to do it, and There is a lot of work to do.
Argentina has the 25% of this population living in buenos aires and the best stadiums are in Buenos Aires, all has to be remodel or improveed to be a world cup host, and a new stadium could be good, in the rest of the country, there is some big stadiums, but also the have to be remodel... a lot... this could cost an incredible amount of money, so I don´t know if Argentina is graet chance.

Argentina and chile???

Mexico, already host the 70 and 86 world cup

Chile alone? they just doesn´t have enouthg stadium and the rest are to little

To mi Australia is the best option, if it´s consider as an option, to the 2014 world cup

but I don´t want to wake up at 2am, to see the matchs again ¬¬

It sometimes has more than that! In the middle of summer:

Great fun when you're travelling interstate!

One option I'm suprpized hasnt been mentioned is a Brazil/Argentina co host although I spose you'd have to play second fiddle somewhat by letting them have the final. Still the memory of a WC is largely defined by what happen on the pitch, I'd guess people remember 2002 more for S.Korea than Japan for example. For both nations to come up with 5-6 new/revamped stadiums doesnt seem nearly as much of a problem and I doubt the other south american teams would mind losing a qualifing spot if they didnt have to get past either of you.

Iberian World Cup - 2018

Imagine a world cup staged in the Iberian Peninsula, in 2018 there will be a new airport in Lisbon, Barajas Airport expansion in Madrid will be also completed as is Porto's Airport. The TGV train linking the two countries will also be completed.

I think the host cities and stadiums should be:

Luz Stadium - Lisbon - Opening cerimonies and opening game - 65 000


Alvalade Stadium - Lisbon - 3rd and 4th place game - 50 000


Dragon Stadium - Porto - Semi-final - 50 000


Braga's Municipal Stadium - Braga - 40 000 (Temporary)


Cidade de Coimbra Stadium - Coimbra - 40 000 (Temporary)


Algarve's Stadium - Faro/Olhão - 40 000 (Temporary)


Santiago Bernabeu - Madrid - 80 000 - Final
[IMGhttp://www.worldstadiums.com/stadium_pictures/europe/spain/madrid/madrid_santiago_bernabeu1.jpg[/IMG]

Nou Camp - Barcelona - 98 000 - Semi-Final


New Valencia's Stadium - Valencia - 72 000

Nueva Romareda - Zaragoza - 42 500


La Cartuja Stadium - Sevilla - 57 000


Gipuzkoarena - San Sebastian - 42 000

A World Cup in my country with the final being held in Madrid? No, thank you. In 1999 we asked Spain if they wanted to make a joint bid for the Euro 2004. They refused because they thought they would win it easily by themselves. You know what happened...

I'd guess that hosting 2018 will likely be a showdown between the English/UK and the Spainish/Iberians. With the number of stadiums being built in Spain right now though I'd question if they would need those in Portugal considering a joint would likely be a handicap. A UK bid would IMHO be more likely as there would be political forces pushing for the cash to be spread around the entire country.
