So, genuine guesses please, who do you think will win?

I reckon:

2018 Russia.
2022 After the presentations, probably USA.

Russia 10/10 - better than I thought it would be, much better.
England 9/10 - solid, very well done indeed, but never quite reached the levels Russia's did.

2018: Russia
2022: Australia - though their tongue-in-cheek presentation might not be as persuasive as the US's

Only saw the final 2
Englands was outstanding-as good or better than Qatars-except you know that it was realistic and worthy
Russia was fantastic until the final speaker who struggled not only with the language(understandably) but in much the same manner as Clinton yesterday-rambled off track
England-9.5
Russia-8

It contributes opinion...........which, if you hadn't already realised, is one of the primary roles of forums such as this.

To be honest i don't care who wins. If England wins great the Home of Football has finally got the justice and got the WC. If Russia wins great, i'm sure they'll host a special World Cup and invest a lot of money. Either way i'm not bothered so good luck to England and Russia .

Lets face it. Bids and Presentation (AKA the only things that matter)

England wins both hands down.

The only stumbling block is growth into a new market and FIFA's delegation wanting to punish the nation for the Media ousting them which to me would be mightly unfair.

Totally agreed.

A great pity because Russia's was otherwise the most compelling of the presentations, IMO (am I allowed to say that, kidrobot? Did it contribute anything to the thread? ).

Oh, calm down, gentlemen. You're from the land of Shakespear, remember? Where does your filthy language come from?

I disagree.

All four bids are excellent. Each has different strengths (and weaknesses).

The only bid that I really don't want to win is Iberia, for reasons already explained (no offence to Spain and Portugal - both of which are fantastic countries).

Does anybody know if the entire vote will be live? i.e. will they announce which countries drop out first? like the IOC.

As I understand it, the first thing we will hear will be the name of the winner.

I guess that it's likely that we will subsequently hear how many votes each bid received at each stage of voting.

According to William Hill, Russia is not a favorite anymore. The coefficients on Russia victory greatly soared (Russian chances fell), English coefficients were greatly increased.

Off-top: Putin ordered today's flight to Zurich in case of success (!???).
