No, you don't want to go in that "Russia" from Holysh*twood movies and mass media. This is a different country .

Russia is not Soviet, just by secret for you . Actually you can not go, having Cold War dinosours who still can't wake up from coma is not good .
And you mean CCTV and Big Brother in England, PATRIOT acts in USA, etc.?

I wouldn't be too concerned with World Football Insider and their assessment as it was found out about 5 months ago to be bankrolled by the Qatar bid team

No, 2022 is 12 years away, we will have a newer generation to take "your" place. + we have the entire Arab world around us, they will come DUH. It doesn't necessarily have to be international attendance, in the end its your decision and your loss, stick to your TV screen.

I'm sorry, but it does and a world cup without international attendence isn't a world cup!!

Tickets will be given over to the FAs of the teams which qualify and it will be up to them to sell them onto their fans. So fans' perceptions of a country are, or at least ought to be important when FIFA makes their final decision. If FIFA thinks they'll have trouble attracting people to a given country, they won't particularly like the argument that the world cup stadiums could "instead" be filled with locals; it doesn't work like that.

Mate, don't get too upset. He is merely making a pop culture reference which I wouldn't expect a Russian to of heard and it is no big loss. He really isn't making any serious fun at Russia.
Have a look at this guy. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yakov_Smirnoff

Reading what they wrote about Australia shows shodding journalism as the issues they have mentioned have been resolved long before this was published. They even have a go at Australia for "Having to wait for the bid book" to know what venues would most likely be use which is the same for most bids yet made no mention that Qatar only provided 5 renders to the public for months.

I could go on but after reading what they had to say over numerous issues, it's more informative reading people's thoughts and views on this site from various intelligent people who post here.

Thats because the Qatar bid team funds the site/pays for them to say positive and false things about Qatar.

Yeah.Its strange because they state the obvious which is "Doha's bid is now unofficially dead" yet their score went up 2 points
Quote:
Qatar - Quite how badly Qatar will suffer from Harold Mayne-Nicholls's summing up at the conclusion of the FIFA inspection tour remains to be seen. But his “logistical challenges” comment made headlines worldwide; he questioned whether a small nation could host the finals and failed to make reference to the revolutionary new cooling technologies that have been touted as a key aspects of the bid. The sense that the normally even-handed Chilean had been unfair was palpable at the Doha press conference, for underlying his message was a sentiment that no matter what the rich Gulf kingdom promised it wouldn't be good enough. It was a big blow for Qatar. But the bid continues to run an excellent campaign, with money no object. Its new stadium plans are stunning and it boasts strong international and domestic legacy plans. The bid believes it has provided a viable solution to the problems posed by heat but the difficulty lies in overcoming perceptions that the country is just too hot and too small for the World Cup. Qatar's campaign is building up a head of steam, and with AFC president Mohammed Bin Hammam throwing his weight behind it, not least when he has given up on his FIFA presidential ambitions for another four years, there's no discounting the Gulf state's chances.
Has he cut a deal to get European support for his bid? We can only wait and see.

That Bid Power Index is as ludicrous as the 2016 Olympic index.

I think it had Rio's transport score close to that of Madrid's....how do they expect people to take it seriously when its basically rubbish?

Nor security
How does Qatar score a 5 when its so open to insurgency,suicide bombers or airspace incursions via rocket launchers etc with neighbours like Iran and Saudi that hate the West severely and don't even recognise Israel.Very hostile part of the world at this point ,and who knows what the politics of this world will look like in 12 years

You are Islamophobic. The only people you need to worry about is the west and Israel doing air raids on civilians.
