It annoys me a little when they talk of bringing "East" and "West" together and something miraculous will happen.
It's a two way street, but apparently we can only come together in perfect harmony on their turf.
Their nation is full of Expats and Guest Workers which out number their citizens. Shouldn't it already be a melting pot?
But I guess that is just reality when you're only interested in pampering ones ego in technical development rather than Social.

FAIL for getting another country to promote their football because Qatar has never made a world cup or achieved anything worthwhile Bunch of skyscrapers pop up in 2022, yeah that's great tourist venues right there and desert, and a squiggle to show the unproven techologies total FAIL.
I don't understand you. it's not a feedback on the qatar project ( that is ridicolous) but on the presentation, that was, without doubts, well done.
the problem is the lousy presentation of Australia

I thought it was a very smooth presentation but the fact is they pretend that all the massive problems don't exist
Heat will not be a problem
Heat will not be a problem
Heat will not be a problem

Bulldust it won't
If only you proved the testing in full size stadiums in June on a windy day-----------you couldn't
You say millions will go----------wrong
You ask when------------when the bid complies

Don't you dare change the very essence of a World Cup

It might have been lousy in your eyes as they didn't project lies and garbage which was an utter embarrassment. They obviously took a different road to the information session bids. Whether it will work, we'll see but South Korea's bid had far more substance than Qatar's joke presentation. I was laughing through the whole thing because it was an utter joke. It's been the biggest joke of all time and that presentation just summed it up, with squiggles to prove flawed technologies, desert shots/skyscrapers popping up as tourist venues, people not from Qatar and the promotion of the Iraqi football team instead of the Qatar one
