Actually, a joint bid would boost bilateral relations between the two nations.

Of course it would but I just disagree with joint bids in general for the World Cup.

I agree.Also joint bids give two different nationalites to watch the games in their home soil at once.What's wrong with that?

It's like you seem to expect that every country in the world would handle it with no errors of judgement....not so mate! Apart from that mistake, the whole country dealt with it extremely well, and we didn't nuke another nation in retaliation, we got on with it; London has faced more in it's time then probably any other city in the world.

I'm sorry mate, but you're talking absolute rubbish! Of course London is a potential threat for terrorism, as is Paris, New York etc etc, but so what?? So we should let the terrorists win should we, we should lock up shop and not allow any events to be held in the country for 'fear' of terrorism?? If we took your attitude we'd never get anywhere, we'd never move on. So your arguement is that because terroists 'might' attack in London, the WC should not go to England?? Well, thankfully, FIFA and the rest of the world don't think like you, and this will not be more of a problem in an England bid then any other country that goes for the WC. Plus, we are talking about 2018 here, 12 years away!

And another arguement I've heard people saying is that London will have the Olympics in 2012....the Olympics is a totally different organisation to FIFA, and it has no real bearing on whether a country should be allowed to host a WC or not! Plus, it is the 'London' 2012 olympics...there is more to England then London, and the WC is about the whole country!

Sorry to yall who want to keep the thread fully focused on the Greece/Turkey topic, I would never make a comment like that out of the blue, but when somebody brings up these other issues, I can't leave them unanswered!

Imo, Greece and Turkey are/will not be ready to host a WC in 2018; remmeber you have to have a good starting bid, and the initial bid takes place in the near future, so you can't just offer lots of promises of new stadiums! I don't think FIFA would want a) a joint bid, and b) a European nation to hold a WC when they have not even been tested with a Euro Cup! Look at Portugal, they held a successful Euro 2004, and they now have lots of quality stadiums and will be in a good position to bid for a WC by about 2026/2030.

^ I wish you Brits would have took this confident and positive attitude for the 2004 games, instead of freaking out and treating Athens as if it was Baghdad.



Anyway, as has been brought up before, a WC is to big for Greece to host, even as a joint bid. The capacities needed to host games in stadiums I believe are a minimum of 40,000. There are maybe 3-4 clubs that can sustain stadiums of 40,000+, 1 already have a stadium and it's under 40,000. It's just not logical. We should keep bidding for the Euro, it's more practical.

What I don't understand is the problem against joint bid. Korea and Japan did a good job didn't they. and the EC 2000 in Belgium and the Netherlands wasn't that bad was it?
is there a special/comercial reasion that the Fifa is against these bids?
I think nor Turkey nor Greece can/should do this on it's one, because I think it would be to much asked of those countries, maybe I underastemate here, but that is just the feeling I have.

Yes you do underestimate IMO.
Greece could EASILY host the WC, I think the problem will be the aftermath (Stadium left unused) but by then (2018) I think it will be feasable.

I have said it before, Greece is a spotlight *****. They are bound to bid soon.

I think the Americas deserve it for 2018 or 2014 (if it is not decided). I would like a World cup in USA/Canada, Argentina/Paraguay, Brazil, or Mexico. We haven't had a World Cup in years.

No, it isn't. The Netherlands and Belgium did made plans for the WC 2018 hosting, but the FIFA/UEFA said they don't want to let more than one country organize the tournament anymore. So it's or Italy, or Greece, if one of these countries want to organize it.
