I don't think the Exec Board will agree with it. It's is just too darn sensible for them.

As well many major universities have top notch training and sports medicine facilities and can faciliate a sense of seclusion for the teams (if that is what they prefer).

The fact you can't even come up with just one more vote is pretty substantial

Just 6 weeks ago the USA had 11 primary votes-its all turned to scheisse

Don't do that. You sound just like the Qatari's.

We don't know what direction the votes will go. What say's UEFA will vote as a block, especially towards either Australia or the US?

And you must feel absolutely destroyed that Qatar has tried so hard to kill the Russian bid by colluding with Spain

What a loser

That's an unproved assumption.

And did you took that photo you used in photoshop? No? Then you barbarically stole it... You used a someone else's work for a poor business, pretending to be an original author... That's so barbaric...

You copied the idea

Anyway back to Qatar killing the Russian bid
Very strange you support Qatar.
It was neck and neck between England and Russia 3 weeks ago,until Qatar put Spain on a pedestal.
Now you'll struggle to get to the final round as Spain already have 7 votes minimum-Spain,Argentina,Brazil,Guatemala,Qatar,Egypt,Thailand

Thanks for turning me off the Russian bid.You're quite welcome to search my post history for any disparaging remarks about Russia-there wasn't any

You are welcome to search my post history as well. But i'll help you. I said - personally i believe Qatar should withdraw from race to open the window for joint Middle East 2030 bid. Same could go to UK. It should be Western EU joint bid.

Russian bid covers nearly half of Europe. American bid covers half of North America. Australian bid covers whole Australia (but i think if you get 2022 World Cup you should give at least one stadium to New Zealand. i'm sure Blatter won't be against it). The Qatar and UK covers just tiny countries. That's unfair for rest of western EU. Because of small England they won't able to get anything at their homes for next 12-16 years...

No joint bids suck. Last thing we need is both Australia and New Zealand hosting. Then we have two more crappy teams in the world cup.

However a joint bid between Colombia & Ecuador would be supported.
