USA and Australia are only serious bids. Japan and Korea are doing mainly PR here because they know as well that its too soon and Qatar is simply too small.

My vote goes to USA, it has large European communities (i know that Australia has as well, but numbers and variety is on USA side) and it would be like playing at home for many teams. That's basically only reason for me. Stadium and infrastructure wide both bids would be awesome.

Both Russia and England bids are good. Whoever wins it will do great job.

Enough with the cultural/national stereotypes. These may be offensive and eventually cause chaos.

Lets move on.

Thanks.

Maybe he thinks China will FORCE FIFA to give it to them or will have ruled the world by then.

I wonder if FIFA will punish England for their botched bid?

There won't be official sanctions in my opinion, and nor should there be. Even an organisation like FIFA wouldn't legislate against a bid because someone who used to be involved in it made some crazy comments in what he thoght was a private conversation. If he'd said such things publically then of course England 2018 would be in trouble with the ethics committee. As it is though, I don't think they'll sanction England 2018 for what has happened.

Whether it'll affect the vote though we'll have to wait and see.

Now, what does this statement here tell us:

FIFA can confirm that FIFA secretary general Jérôme Valcke has requested the FIFA Ethics Committee to examine the alleged statements made by Lord Triesman in relation to the bidding process for the 2018 and 2022 FIFA World Cups," said a statement by world football's governing body.

"In addition, FIFA has sent a letter to The Football Association asking The FA to provide a report on this matter, including Lord Triesman's position.

"FIFA will not make any further comment on this matter until it has been dealt with by the FIFA Ethics Committee."
It tells us that the FIFA ethics committee asked for a report on the matter and for Lord Triesman' position his allegations and accuisations.
And it also says the matter will be dealt with.

What it doesn't specify is that the FIFA Ethics Commitee most likely doesn't only do this just because it investigates agains Triesman but as I expect also because they have to investigate in the matter concerning the accuisations themselves that were made by Triesman in order to clarify how if there is possibly any truth to those allegations against Spain and Russia.
Of course they won't say it openly and publically, but I surely expect that now, where they have been informed by Triesman (accidentally) through the press by his statements that he accuses Spain and Russia of possibly manipulating games Games or the WC bid or bribery... they will of course also have to investigate if there is any truth to that, at least if they do what they ought to do and if only to clarify for sure there is really absolutely no truth to them.
Who knows theoretically this might even have a much bigger impact on the whole bid than most here expect. the outcome is probably extremely unpredictable for non insiders like us here whithout any solid information facts etc. The possible outcome might theoretically of course be sanctions against or a lot of trouble for England leading to virtually no chance to win the bid or England even cancelling the bid, but theoretically it might also just as well be revealing a gigantic manupilation skandal between Spain and Russia with unimaginable consequences, or all of that or none of it.... who knows? We all here surely don't, unless there are some people around who do in fact have inside information, which I seriously doubt of course.
But luckily we just have to be a little patient and then will see what the outcome of this or these investogations from the FIFA Ethics Committee is.
