Cant wait till the 2nd of Dec when Qatar DON'T win, so hopefully waqif gets the message and doesn't release retardation on the forum anymore.

That's poor reasoning. How can I say this politely? Ok here it goes: Americans really don't give a f*ck about England. Or anyone else for that matter. They want it in 2022. They were allowed to bid, so they did. Sure America could bid again in 2026. But so could anyone else. Yah, yah I understand that Oz's chances are lower then...that's just the way it goes unfortunately.

All that being said, I think Aussie would be a terrific choice in 2022. Actually kinda rooting for y'all

Face it buddy the Russian FA have blown this bid, much like England probably blew the 2006 bid. Don't worry there's 2030 for Russia Qatar on the other hand try the year 4050, maybe by then, you might actually have some sort of worth, after we've run through all the countries that deserve to host the world cup.

Since Australia has escaped from the FIFA wilderness that is Oceania, our rank has gone straight to the neighbourhood of the USA's.

Mike, stop being a wind up. Russia is still joint favourite. Both England and Russia know the other's bid is very strong, but in different ways.

Australians and Amercans aren't fighting because we have a deep understanding and respect for each other. Australian's haven't come on this forum proclaiming numerous votes already secured and that hosting is a foregone conclusion, dec 2 being a mere formality. All the while showing remarkable ignorance at the scale and culture of the event.

The US like Australia, South Korea and Japan all have provided bids which fullfill the conventional criterior of hosting a World Cup, no special exceptions needed for any of them.

Australian's actually recognise the USA as a legitimate and in many way's superior competitior but we have beaten strong competitiors before in a fair fight rather than a sleazy back door mess. The US has nothing to prove to Australia or the World when it comes to hosting these type of events, nor does Australia.
Actually we do import a small amount natural gas, about AUD 1.8 billion per annum. Of this, less than half comes from the Mid East.

As for Qatar, we import goods worth about AUD 400 million from them, which considering we import goods worth $250+ billion, it puts them at about 1.7% of total imports - less than we buy from Puerto Rico. The USA in comparison, even after a year of massive recession was still over 10% of our imports.

On the USA Waqif, Aussies are realistic and know they are the fav, and it will take something amazing from Lowy and co to win the bid against them. Issue for Qatar is with it effectively a one city bid, its always been discounted for this reason (and the heat). Its not about racism, Singapore would face the same hurdles. You just don't have the infrastructure needed to provide the support a touring population a WC needs. No one city ANYWHERE in the world can do it, and that includes the likes of Shanghai, London, and New York

I love the racism thing lol. Just cracks me up every time when people have been saying myself included that Egypt would make an awesome host. I mean can you imagine? World cup games, then going to see the pyramids, the valley of the pharaohs etc etc would be amazing. Even more important that that in my opinion is the fact Egypt are a massively talented football side, that could take anyone apart on their day. They were in the top 10 teams on the planet and are the reigning african champions, they certainly are not a disgrace to international football like Doha. I love this comment on the BBC as well half of Birmingham haha GOLD!

I think England for 2018 and Australia for 2022. England is a traditional centre of football and they haven't hosted since 1966! Australia has never hosted the world cup and they are up against 3 bids that have hosted the world cup in the last 16 years!! (Qatar doesn't count. That bid is equivalent to having the world cup entirely in only half of Birmingham!)

Maybe FIFA should just go off the technical inspection reports. They are relatively neutral

Mo Rush sees the truth, it's unfortunate he hasn't banned you as of yet, it's funny that you keep talking about racism, it just dumbfounds me that you even know that word at all. Saying Doha can't host the world cup isn't racist, it's FACT.
