Thanks for the link, it's nice to read, but seriously:
An index where Qatar ends up 3rd with a better score than the US even has, tied with Russia and just one point behind Australia. No offense to the people from Qatar and this ranking probably indicates the Qatar bid might be far better than many of us here expect, but I personally can't really take a ranking with an outcome like that very serious.
The main reason why the result of this ranking is so weird is probably because they have no weighted scores for their categories while having lots of categories valueing the bid "paperwork" aspects like: "Bid operation/leadership", "Relation w/ FIFA members", "International PR"
while at the same time having only very few categories for cultural and touristic infrastructure aspects which are partially being completely omitted even and only partially rated in this one category here:"Transport/Accommodation".

Belgium & Netherlands Pros
-Football is the national sport for both countries, thus guaranteed national enthusiasm.
-Short distance between venues.
-Good transport infrastructure.
-Neither have hosted the World Cup before.
Quote:
Belgium & Netherlands Cons
-By far the smallest country or group of countries bidding.
Doesn't matter aslong as there are enough hotels and if the infrastructure can cope with the millions of visitors. Should be possible, if needed you can stay in nearby cities, you can get everywhere witin a couple of hours anyway within benelux.
Quote:
-Belgium's lack of political unity.
Don't really see what this has to do with it? If we get the World Cup the stadiums will be build for sure and no Belgium won't split before 2018.
Quote:
-Many domestic teams don't need 40,000+ stadiums, thus costly and un-needed legacy.
Maybe not 12 teams but at least 8 teams need a bigger stadium. 40000 Would be a good stadium for a number of teams + we need a new national stadium in Belgium too + a few stadiums can get reshaped to a 20/30k stadium if needed.
Quote:
-FIFA might be against joint bids.
FIFA is against join bids because of the political bullcrap between te FA's of the 2 countries like in Japan/South Korea. However, BE & NL have 1 bid and work very closely together so it's no problem.


That said, I think England deserve it more. Spain/Portugal would be nice aswell, great culture, great weather, great people, great cities, great for camping, just perfect. Russia, please... just no. They are worse in every social-eco aspect compared to Spain or England. Worse cities (in general, I know moscow & St Petersburg r nice), same or worse climate, worse infrastructure, fans not as friendy as in spain/england, too big distances, racism problem(?), not sure if the camping would be as good as in spain/england, difficult to reach cities outside moscow, too many socio-economic problems within society, first time that they bid and could go on and on. Just throwing some money at it is not enough.

And the trolls on this thread don't really change my attitude (allthough I shouldn't use this as an argument).

I have nothing against Russia, I just think a World Cup would be better in England or Spain. Maybe Russia in 2026.

I can talk very long about their abomination...
I hope that worls cup will be in Russia. But if Russia loses, i can support some other country except England and USA.
and who said the cold war was over, this is football and England has a great choice of stadiums, new and old. it also has alot of football fans so no games will have poor attendence plus with the Olympics being held before it we will have the lessons learnt from that to create a brilliant world cup.

Comrades, the Europeans accept the fact that the World Cup 2018 will take place in Russia. We he needed, we never in history did not take World Cup or Euro.
Welcome to Russia in WC 2018!

No one. Jackson-Wennick amendment still in power, without reasons, USA and UK continue to arm and supply puppet regimes around Russia (Georgia, Baltic states), USA STILL have nuclear weapons in Europe, USA STILL has US base in Germany, while Russia doesn't, NATO still exists, UK continue to arm terrorist gangs in N.Caucusus to continue collapse, based on artificially created destabilisation, on August 2008 we saw an Information attack on Russia, in 2008 there was a puppet candidate on president elections - freemason Bogdanov who openly said that he travelling in USA a lot to meet USA politicians before elections, "Color revolutions" in post-Soviet space (CIA regime changes), anti-Russian propaganda in Holyshitwood films continues even stronger, I even don't talk about anti-Russian propaganda in mass media (just read any article about Russia and you will find proved lies very fast), and on and on and on.

But it's not already a Cold War, where 2 sides are fighting. This is one-sided "Cold" attack on Russia.

And someone still wonder why Russia have problems in economic or social sphere? Of course it has, because the whole Intelligense Agencies of USA and UK is working on its creation.

Hopefully some FIFA top bods are watching the play-off final at Wembley at the moment. A really great advertisment for football in England. Fantastic football match, great atmosphere.

Russia was a footballing wilderness until a few years ago. Are we going to have to play on artificial pitches like in CL games?!

Of course it would do a world of good hosting it in Russia but that still doesn't out-do what England has IMO.

It's about time FIFA did something right so for goodness sake look past the Triesman ordeal and do what's right for the World Cup and for international football!

PS: where did all these crazy Russian nationalists come from?
