But lets get back on topic.



It's true. Saudi Arabia and America are like best friends. They are an alliance against Iran, building high tech nukes and spy stations. It's there oil state.

This is about the world cup bids though.
Be very careful. You're 2 steps from being booted out of here.

But Australia 2022 will only be dream, it will never become reality.
Thanks for the backhanded compliment

I'm far from Islamaphobic.I've been to both Turkey and Egypt-both amazing Muslim countries,both tourism hotspots that would do a great job of hosting a technically compliant FIFA World Cup.
Been particularly interested in the Turkish Superlig,where a number of Australians are playing especially Galla where a few NT players are.Also following the fortunes of the Turkish National team under Guus.I'm sure they'll do very well.And of course its only a matter of time before the Egyptians break though internationally,a great team to watch

I love this word Islamaphobic. I wonder what the exact word was when I was living in Qatar and I could have been arrested and put into prison for practicing/praying towards any other religion other than Islam mmm yeah FAIL!. I haven't seen any such words or phrases within this forum, it has all been in relation to the technical failures of Qatar and suddenly it becomes Islamaphobic. How is it that anyone can support a world cup bid for Egypt or Morocco( btw 2 nations who truly deserve to host a football world cup) and suddenly be an Islamaphobe? Just face it buddy. Qatar is a failure, Qatar is a failure technically, Qatar is a failure politically, Qatar is a failure in world football and quite frankly Qatar should remove it's bid ASAP because frankly Qatar is a Failure with the biggest capital F out of all the bids. There is no more to Fail. Just an official word of withdrawal/elimination from FIFA due to the totally absurd logistics/logic behind the bid. Qatar's world cup bid has been an absolute utter embarrassment to everyone concerned.

Shows how naive you are. We have the largest official (government backed) Church in the Gulf region + A Jewish synagogue under construction. So what exactly are you on about ?

This thread has reached new levels with clear objectives of creating a bad image of the Qatari bid, ignoring all pro's and bringing up irrelevant/false cons. Pure result of envy, jealousy, hatred & racism.

Football character assassination. An apology and withdrawal would be in place.

You'll probably find me featuring on youtube in a decapitation video shortly, having advocated anti-islam sentiments.

Apology and withdrawal ? you must be having dreams after you knew that Qatar is the most likely host of the 2022 edition of the World Cup. Thats whats wrong with you, fear, and your trying everything you can do so that this bid stops ASAP. good luck doing that, since posting a couple of posts here and there on SSC is not going to help you achieve your objective.

Be very very careful. Accusations of racism will be taken as seriously as racist remarks.

I can assure that I am neither Islamophobic, envious , jealous or racist and if anybody continues using the "race card" because its convenient, rather than to address the real challenges with this wishful bid, I can't assure you that you will be around here for much longer.

The nature of the World Cup as an event, continues to elude the minds of any blind nationalists who would support Qatar regardless of the reality.

Qatar should be praised for trying but its very concept is the very thing that will or might see it eliminated from the race before the vote.

So the next time somebody questions 6-10 venues in one city, yes its one city, and they are replied to with a "race card", it will be taken as an accusation of racism and be dealth with accordingly.

Money can't buy anything. The sooner some realize that the fewer "race cards" we will see.

You didnt need to clarify that. although some members have serious issues.

and if anybody continues using the "race card" because its convenient, rather than to address the real challenges with this wishful bid, I can't assure you that you will be around here for much longer.

Lets hope some actions is taken ASAP

Whatever you say boss.

Qatar should be praised for trying but its very concept is the very thing that will or might see it eliminated from the race before the vote.

58 Days left, I am sure if it were to be eliminated it wouldn't have gone this far Mo.

So the next time somebody questions 6-10 venues in one city, yes its one city, and they are replied to with a "race card", it will be taken as an accusation of racism and be dealth with accordingly.
Instead of bashing Qatar's bid, find something useful to do. (For all members)

You know what Qatar Son, despite the overwhelming sense of logic telling near enough all non-Qatar supporting nations on here that the Qatar bid is just outright ridiculous, logistically unreliable, corrupt and all manner of any other accusations, you have to admire the guts to actually go for it. Just be careful not to send accusations back the other way...retaliation isn't the best way to get your point across.

I don't think Qatar will make it much farther than the first round of the vote, but why the heck not, I'm supporting them! Got to love that underdog spirit.

You support a bid that is logistically woeful, based around 9 white elephant stadiums in a desert, built by workers with no rights who sometimes do not get paid? Because they are underdogs??
Love the logic.

Damn right!

It's like some sort of completely ridiculous movie, lighten up a bit. I don't really think Qatar has much of a serious chance, but fair play to them actually daring to dream.

For those who haven't heard, a member of the USA committee has said that USA will pull out of 2018 and has come out in support of England.

FIFA World Cup bid inspection team member Danny Jordaan says he is certain that the 24 men of the FIFA Executive committee will be influenced by its report when deciding on who will host the 2018 and 2022 finals. South Africa's World Cup CEO was part of the six-man team that concluded its nine-candidate inspection tour in Qatar in September, and will have an input into FIFA’s report which is expected to be published later this month..

Speaking at the Leaders in Football conference in London today, Jordaan said the FIFA executive “must have an idea of the capacity [of a candidate] to host the World Cup”. “I’m sure that they’ll study the report and they will be influenced by what the report says,” he said “At the end of the day FIFA wants a successful World Cup and it gives them an indication of what exists in terms of building over the next few years.

“It’s a decision that will be taken in 2010 for 2018 and 2022. So they will want an understanding of what is the proposal of the different countries in meeting the targets so that the event can be successful both from an event perspective and a commercial perspective.” Jordaan said he expected the format would remain the same for future World Cup bid contests.

He suggested that some of the flourishes put forward by 2018/2022 candidates were ephemeral to the ultimate outcome. “The problem always is that when you have a competition like the bidding and [one candidate] provides a black Mercedes Benz, the other nation provides a black Mercedes Benz that is maybe a little bigger than the opposition,” he said.

“You can put us all in a bus, we do not have to fly by helicopter to a venue. "For me it won’t make a difference, but what you must consider is that you have three days to convince me of your case that’s winnable and if I get stuck in traffic for half a day, that’s half a day I don’t see.”

An outbreak of football hooliganism at the recent match between Anzhi Makhachkala and Spartak Moscow has drawn a stern response from the Dagestan club. But the potential embarrassment for Russia’s football authorities could continue in the run-up to the announcement of the 2018 World Cup hosts.

Although many in football’s homeland feel rioting fans are a relic of the past, Russian reporters gleefully reminded the world of English fan rampages home and away in response to allegations of corruption in the domestic game here. But reports of a Spartak supporters’ coach being shot at in Makhachkala, while fans clashed inside and outside the stadium, is the last thing Russia’s 2018 bid needs.

The head coach of Anzhi, a newly-promoted Premier League team, was quick to rebuke the official fan club – and said before the game fans had been asked not to respond to taunts from Spartak. Hadji Hadjiev told Sovietsky Sport: “We understand it is linked to the behaviour of red and white fans when we played in Moscow, but we cannot accept this. “We are well aware that an extremist group of Spartak fans has created an intolerable situation at different stadiums, and the executive director of the club Sayid Abdullayev met our fan representatives several times to ask them not to react.”

During Sunday’s game rival fans clashed on the terraces of Anzhi’s stadium, while members of the hosts’ “Dikaya Divisiya” (Wild Movement) fan group displayed a banner accusing Spartak fans of fascism. After the match the Spartak team bus was pelted with stones and a supporters coach was fired on with traumatic weapons.

How is 2022 and 2030 impossible by FIFA rules? The only rule I know of is that a confederation cannot host either of the next two World Cups after it hosts one.

2030 is going to be back in Europe anyways. They're going to get one of every three.
