i myself dont think a country who have serious hooliganism problems should be given a chance to host the cup.
even if they behave discipline at home. they created trouble to the host country abroad, thats the worst things soccer fans can do to spoil the host's event


I'd agree, unless as I suspect that is, the last comment is directed at England only, because hooliganism across the world appears to be dying down, and certainly has amongst England fans abroad.

Well, in that case, let's rule out Italy (which has a far worse domestic hooligan problem than England now) and Argentina (ditto) and Poland (ditto) and Russia (ditto) and Turkey (ditto) and Brazil (where guns at games are not unheard of) and Spain (where racism in football is rife).

While we're at it, let's keep the World Cup away from China (because of human rights issues) and South Africa (because of crime) and Mexico (because of stifling pollution in Mexico City) and the USA (for not signing up to Kyoto and other crucial environmental treaties) and France (because they eat too much garlic) and............you get the picture.

The fact is that hooliganism is now a very minor issue in England. Our fans travel to international tournaments in vast numbers (far greater than any other country - an average of over 70,000 England fans stayed in the host cities for each of England's five games) and yet there have been only a handful of minor incidents involving England fans in the past six years. We've got our act together. That's no excuse to become complacent. But we should at least recognize how far we have come. FIFA and UEFA have even gone on record over the past few tournaments, praising England's fans for their vast following, the good atmosphere they generate at games and their general good behaviour.

If things are decided as late as 2009, would that give Brazil enough time to prepare and upgrade everything?

I say they should start now.

Of the 9 of over 60000 capacity, 4 can hold over 70000. In a country as enthusiastic about football as China, these grounds could be packed to capacity for probably every game. The stadia I've based this on are;
Olympic Stadium, Beijing (91000)
Guangzhou Stadium, Guangzhou (80012)
Shanghai Stadium, Shanghai (80000)
Workers Stadium, Beijing (72000)
Wulihe Stadium, Shenyang (65000)
Olympic Sports Center, Nanjing (60000)
Wuhan Stadium, Wuhan (60000)
Tianhe Stadium, Guangzhou (60000)
Yizhong Stadium, Qingdao (60000)
Olympic Sports Center, Chonqing (58680)
People's Stadium, Dalian (55000)
Shandong Stadium, Jinan (43700)

P.S. - I am Scottish, and just wanted an excuse for anyone but England to host the World Cup.
So what? You can have big grounds but are they all suitable for the world cup. Some might be a total joke.

Got 3 things to say to you.

1 - Scotland are getting better, and we have so much promising youth that we will qualify for another major tournament after Euro 2008.

2 - China have a bigger population, so FIFA would probably choose them due to the potential for bigger income.

3 - There is only a tiny element of Scots who are Anglophobic. You are stereotyping Scots, but if you ask people from France, Italy or anywhere else, you will find that they think that Tartan Army fans are brilliantly behaved and very friendly.

This is more important than stadiums- we're talking security for all fans here!!!! As for quality, I wasn't obviously refering to the stadiums but to quality of life - with a possible terrorist attack on England always being a possibility, this leaves everyone stressed up.
Come to England, mate. I'm sure you'll find that we're not the least bit "stressed up" about terrorist attacks. We've been living with them for more than thirty years now. We just get on with our lives. Que sera, sera.

And you fail to grasp the essential truth about terrorism and the World Cup. The truth is that the World Cup has a massively high media profile around the world, wherever it is held. And that, rather than an individual country, is what terrorists will target. Terrorists need, above all, the oxygen of publicity. And they would get that just as much by bombing a World Cup in Portugal as they would by bombing a World Cup in England.

The 2018 world cup will go to Samoa. All games will be held at the "Toleafoa J.S.Blatter Football Fields" (capacity 4.000).

At least people won't be complaining about shadows on the field.

Yeah, right!
And the people will watch the games on TV anyway. Nobody's going to games with overpriced entrance fees.

4,000 capacity...?? Forget that, have you seen the amount of open space round that pitch?? You could get over 100,000 people all seated (in plastic portable seats) round that field....viewing the game might be a bit difficult, but I'm sure the area's nightlife would make up for that...

How about a Zeppelin above the pitch with big screens attached to it. The audience will sit in their deck chairs and look onto the screens while enjoying their cocktails.
