England.

Not been biased or anything, but everyone knows that the WC in England would be VERY special.

I would choose England of course. As others have said it would be a special atmosphere but I suspect The Daily Mail have irreversibly damaged England's chances. If that is the case I choose Russia.

England are obviously my favourites.

After that I'd probably choose the Holland/Belgium bid, then Russia, and lastly the wonky bid that is Spain/Portugal.

Non-European bids don't really have a shot at 2018.

England gets my vote if their bid team can sort themselves out. The stadiums are high quality and would be full after the World Cup (like Germany in 2006). The infrastructure is good and the distances are manageable. National enthusiasm would also be high.

A World Cup in Spain and Portugal would also be nice. However, if the Spanish and Portuguese economies go the same way as Greece (which I hear is a possibility) then that will screw up their chances. If that ceases to be a problem then good stadiums, good infrastructure and guarenteed enthusiasm make this a strong bid, though I don't know why Spain needed Portugal. They could've bid by themselves and had just as much, if not more, chance of success.

The Russian bid is stymied by 3 basic problems. 1 - Large distances even with clustered venues. 2 - No one wants to go to Russia. 3 - Russian domestic football does not justify building many 40,000+ stadiums (the 2009 average attendance in Russia's top division was 12,517). Poland and Ukraine have a similar problem, building large stadiums that will almost never be more than half full after Euro 2012 when domestic teams are playing in them.

The joint Dutch/Belgian bid has a similar problem to Russia in that there is little need for that many large scale venues there. Who, aside from Ajax, Feyenoord and PSV, needs a 40,000+ stadium?

The USA might have the best stadium infrstructure in the world but they lack much collective enthusiasm for football. It is maybe the 5th most popular team sport in North America. Plus it has Russia's problem with distances and it held the World Cup in 1994. Though it was a financially successful tournament (which will count in the current bids favour) it did little to enhance football's standing in the country. The big European TV markets (who supply most of the TV money) will also be forced to show games in the middle of the night which will cut down on their advertising revenue, and that won't be popular.

Honestly, I don't know what to make of the Australian bid. I didn't think football was that big a deal there. I thought Aussies were more into Aussie Rules, Cricket and Rugby so I'm not sure how much national enthusiasm there would be. Plus, the distance issue comes up again. However, the stadium infrastructure is good though some will need some work.

To conclude, England would get my vote it they can get their bid team sorted out. Or failing that, Spain & Portugal.

PS From this topic understood that propaganda is very good n Europe.

...And all of that bullshit has what to do with staging the World Cup in 2018? I see no points about stadiums, infrstructure, logistics, national enthusiasm for the tournament or anything else that goes into staging a successful World Cup. All I see is a pile of Russian nationalist crap. This is not the first time I have encountered Russians sensitive to criticism of their country on this site. I wonder why that is.
