Agreed. I'm finish with this thread until December. I'm tired of numerous personal insults. I'm hope that FIFA voters will make me a good gift on my birthday.

Bye!

It ain't 'Anglo-Saxons' (we haven't been called that for over a millenium, it's like us calling you Slavs or Soviets) who are derailing the thread by complaining about the British media every time we post an article that you don't like, then insulting the entire western world publicly and clearly.

FIFA may very well go the safe option for one and new frontier for the other. So either Russia 2018 / USA 2022 or England 2018 / Australia 2022.

It's an IOC member who suggested stopping Olympic fireworks, not a LOCOG official, so you wouldn't see fireworks in Sochi 2014 either if such a policy were implemented. Besides which, I don't think that idea has any legs; it's bloody stupid considering the fact that they burn a giant gas cauldron for a whole month!

Very, very possible.

Just thought I'd inform people that Vladamir Putin hit someone because they said he looked like Dobby the House Elf. Probably the most constructive thing posted in this thread for a while.

I have paid attention to it long time ago. He also looked like Gollum. I won't be suprised if I'll know that film animators used Putin's face for creation of the images of these personages.

Despite the severity of the charges facing Adamu and Temarii the collusion issue is the most sensitive for Fifa because, if proven, it impacts on a many as seven executive committee members.

The challenge it poses for Fifa was illustrated as five of those whose votes are alleged to have been discussed as part of the Qatar-Iberia deal attended meetings at Fifa House yesterday.

Ángel María Villar Llona, the Spanish head of the Iberian bid, and Qatar’s Mohamed Bin Hammam, president of the Asian Football Confederation, are likely to face questions about the allegations.

Their natural or historic allies could also face scrutiny. Bin Hammam has previously had the support of Hany Abou Rida, of Egypt, and Worawi Makudi of Thailand.

Villar Llona and the Iberian bid, meanwhile, have natural allies in Latin America, including Fifa’s senior vice-president, Julio Grondona, of Argentina, and Ricardo Texeira, of Brazil.

Bin Hammam, Makudi, Texeira and Grondona declined to comment yesterday and there is no suggestion that any of those linked to the investigation have broken Fifa rules. The ethics commission, meanwhile, said last week that no investigation has been opened against them.

The Qatar and Spain-Portugal bids have made no comment on the allegations, but both harbour doubts about the substance of the allegations.

The political implications of taking on two bids, and potentially dragging senior figures in the world game into the inquiry, is one of many difficult decisions facing Blatter and Fifa general secretary Jerome Valcke this week.

Be interesting to see, if any are available, odds from Russian bookies. Not that bookies are generally very good at calling these things anyway. There's very little prior "form" to go with.

These odds don't necessarily accurately reflect the chances of each bidding nation.

These are all British bookmakers. So there will inevitably be an unusually high proportion of bets placed on England to win.

I dare say that Russian bookmakers' odds have Russia at the shortest price.
