I'd say it was far superior to Iberia's presentation. The best I've seen, and that includes yesterday's as well. I'm very, very pleased with that, and so was the presentation hall judging by the reception.

Fair play to David Cameron as well, I despise the bloke but he came across very well there. It looks so much better with someone standing speaking without any kind of notes to assist them.

Ok guys, I see what you mean:

If Spain/Portugal wins isn´t fair due to that english media spreaded rumour of vote collusion.
If Russia wins isn´t fair ´cos they don´t have enough infrastructures.
And of course the Netherlands/Belgium bid hasn´t got any chance.

Conclusion: (ironic mode on) The only fair winner is England since London 2012 isn´t enough, heheh

I almost forget it, in 2022: Australia; in 2026: USA. That would be great! (ironic mode off)

Whoever wins questions have to be asked about the process and FIFA's transparency, and that includes England.

England nailed that ...

Just some quotes

Quote:
From Paul in Christchurch, via text: "Watching this with a lump in my throat! Come on Fifa, give it to us!"
Quote:
With lots of clips of foreign Premier League players throughout, and of foreign fans too, England are clearly trying to press home that their bid is a global affair. That's a wrap - and Fifa president Sepp Blatter thanks the England delegation for an "excellent remarkable presentation".
Quote:
"This is a very strong presentation from England.
Quote:
"Wow that was passionate from Becks, almost tears in my eyes. Come on England... Come on Fifa!"
Quote:
From BBC Brazil's Jair Rattner in Lisbon: "A Portuguese commentator on Channel TV1 is claiming the English presentation is inferior to the Iberian one: "To say the best players are in England should be called blasphemy."
Quote:
"Football so proud. We did our best. We should be proud whatever way this goes. But gosh, don't we deserve to win it after that?! Amazing."
Quote:
"Spanish media on the English presentation highlights the presence of football stars, in particular David Beckham and Sir Alex Ferguson, calling them the 'heavy artillery'.

I'm cheering for NL/BE. Or should I say I'm against russian and english bid since they don't deserve to host wc in 2018/22? Having both, Olympic games & wc in such a short period of time is in my opinion stupid/unfair.

That's why: GOGO NL/BE
