I don't know. The Russian bid could wow FIFA with it's selection of venues and host cities, but also could alienate FIFA if it attempts a symbolic "all of Russia's involved" World Cup using cities in the east. The long distance and no doubt transportation issues would need to be solved.

Who knows? they could wow FIFA and sneak out with one of the WC's.

This is first which is borning in mind.
The list of cities is already published and all of them in Western part, so don't worry). Distances are not so big if you compare with WC-2014 or EURO-2012. This is not a problem; mostly a stereotype in mind before looking at map. Also there will be 4 clusters of cities - North-West, Central, South and Volga clusters, so teams and fans from one group will travel between neigbour hosting cities for more comfort.

i think...

it will be a country were soccer is important. They will see in South Africa it was not an option cause soccer is not a big deal and thats why they will go for a safe country that can fill stadiums and can have profits.

So i think england will have it in 2018 and in 2022 it will be USA or Mexico.....

of course my option is Mexico but i wont mind if it is in USA, my home (Monterrey) is 2 hours away from the border and some games could be in Texas.

Well....soon we´ll se the results....and i cant wait for them....

The USA don't have a chance in hell. Since last time round for them football hasn't moved forward locally. To be honest, they'd be the last potential host on FIFA's mind.

England for 2018, Australis 2022 is where the solid money is.

Other than the formation of the MLS, and it's expansion from 9 to 15 teams, it's plans for further expansion over the next 2 seasons, and it's continued growing strength after 13 seasons (as opposed to our stagnating 5 year old A-League), the national side being consistantly ranked in the top 20 (often the top 10), and qualifying for all major tournaments since '94, and participation rates amongst kids having never been higher - no, no forward movement at all.

We all can't be the mighty, mighty A-League.


Anyway, I think Canada should give it a try one of these days, they're the only other country in CONCACAF capable of hosting it.

'Stagnant A-League'? haha It's amazing the idiots that exist out there. This comp is going from strength to strength for a league of it's size. The quality of play is getting better each season and tactically the management and coaching systems being developed within Australia are far more advanced than they were in the first season of A-League. European and Asian clubs scout over here all the time now, all in 5 years. Stagnating? Quite smoking the wack my friend.

As for the national side, the US is a decieving flop not taken all that seriously when the going gets tough. Teactically and institutionally, the US national team is like its cars, all show and no go, no substance. For the massive strides in development and investment in the Australian national side in the last 3 years alone, our national side recieved much more respect from advanced football nations than what the US recieves.

BUDDY YOU SHUD B KIDDING
LAST 4 YRS Rank 2009 2008 2007 2006
US RANK : 11 21 20 7
AUSTRALIA : 14 19 48 Not in top 50

US made it to QF in 2002 only to be subdued by FIFA politics to ensure two famed teams in SF they made US loose in QF in a highly biased umpiring match, cos Turkey, S Korea and Brazil made to SF and if US made ppl wud loose interest.

US ranking is despite it being in the strong CONCOCAF and not Asia Ocenia like Aus.

Aus made 2nd round in 2006, courtesy a winover Japan only one in the whole tournament and as the I round in FIFA WC is a single round robin they scaped through, Though US had held eventual Champs Italy to 1-1 draw and had mighty Czechs in their Group.

AUS no way for WC with a highly concentrated on Southwest coast it is a highly biased geographical, racial and political ways. Dont expect guys to go n play in MCG with the Goal Post 50 mtrs from the nearest Seat.
FYI AUS played their Freindlies in UK as teams reject travelling to Aus.
Stop bidding for the WC go do some Pub brawling which the Aussies r good at.

Well most Australians can speak better english than you for a start. You clearly have no idea what you are talking about most of australias population is on the east and south east coast not the southwest. How are you justifying that Aystralia is biased on race and politics.
I dont know what you are trying to say about the ranking. Australia never had a chance to build a high ranking being in Oceana we did not play teams of a high enouth standard to increase our rank. As we moved into a better federation our ranking jumped from 48 to 14.
In the last world cup Australia Had a much harder group than the US with Brazil, Japan and Croatia Compared to America's Czeck Ghana and Italy. And Australia only left in the second round because of a dubious umpire decision which awarded eventual winners Italy a penalty in a game which was dominated by Australia.

COOL YOUR TEMPERS - TRUTH IS ALWAYS BITTER TO ACCEPT

i. 2006 WC - Tougher Group? My Phillistine buddy, USA drew against Eventual champions Italy & had Ghana the African Party Spoiler as any novice in World Football acknowledges & Czech hav been WC finalists twice though not in good form then.

ii. The concentration of the Aus Bid venues - 2 Melbourne, 1 Sydney, 1 Adelaide, 2 Brisbane (If Canberra add 1 more) isnt this concentration in one south east area (West was typo error from me). Pls go back to High School to learn Geography of ur land.

iii. Every month, Kevin Ruud goes to claim that pls dissociate Australia being racial. If v go by wat u say, Why does he need to give this justification every month? Racial attacks on Asians in Australian Cities is like a routine Page 3 story.

But you did not deny the fact Aus go out to England to play their friendlies. If u cant host friendlies why dream WC?

Chill out, there is no problem in losing few Millions in an unsuccessful bid to England, USA or China and pls prepare to face this truth from now on atleast.

CONCOCAF strong? You must be having a laugh. I wouldn't say the AFC is amazingly strong, but it's no weaker than CONCOCAF.

Buddy, CONCOCAF is much stronger than Asia/Oceania.
Compare groups with Brazil, Argentina, Mexico with those of Japan, S Korea and Iran/Bahrain etc
Agreed, UEFA is a a stronger Group, followed by COCOCAF & Africa; but Aus Claim of a tougher Group is ridiculous considering the Asia Oceania belt.
The Brisbane guy needs to redefine the meaning of strong in the Aus dictionary.

Moreover the timing of Australia is a major problem for Europe and remember they got the '94 WC matches scheduled for early evening to match the European viewer's timings. If this is to be obliged, AUS need to host the matches midnight and early morning hrs which is both ridiculous and dangerous in a racially abrasive country like Australia.
