It's not going to be a negative difference. It was an astounding presentation. Either it's made a positive difference or it's made none at all, I'm quite confident of that. But as I said, not getting my hopes up.

Question: Who would actually be willing to travel to Qatar for the world cup? There is supposed to be a party atmosphere during the world cup, but the only place you're allowed to celebrate in is a hotel room? How stupidly lame. Sorry Blatter, but you're a piece of shit if 2018 goes to Russia and 2022 goes to Qatar.

Well the story I heard on the news breaking at lunch time was that a comittee member was overheard saying 'this changes everything', not that it made a 'big difference'. These may be two seperate stories/incidents. Anyway, I'm with you actually, how anyone can percieve a negative from our presentation I don't know. But I'm well aware I watched it with my 'England' goggles on, and I get the impression the people we are dealing with here are slightly....unpredictable.

For me, I am at the stage of just wanting anyone but the Doha bid.

According to Talksport. We have Japan's vote as we stuck by their side for trying to oust Blatter a few years back.

Also, forgot to mention earlier - really irritated by the fake 'goal' celebrations in our vid. Why do they always do that? You could just imagine the director going "Action!" then all the actors just put their arms up and go 'yeah!!!'. I hate it. I never celebrate a goal like that if it is my team. And neither does any other proper fan I know. Why the temptation to make this appear more civilised? Football is about passion, and there is no other moment I know that arises on this planet (haven't won the lottery yet) where I can lose myself like I do celebrating a goal.

It should also be noted the England bid team made sure the only city they didn't mention in their bid was Birmingham after last nights violence.

BBC sports news correspondent James Pearce on Twitter: "Gary Lineker says a number of voters told him that England's presentation was the best. Sir Keith Mills, former board member and now England 2018 ambassador, tells BBC "I think we might just pull this off"."

I really have no time whatsoever for MBH he would have to be one of the most corrupt, egotistical knob heads in all of FIFA. I hope his head rolls soon.

this is about the third time he has said this, and so far the govt has been silent

IMO he's looking for a distraction from the corrupt local comp he should be cleaning up. Beijing are busy doing that job for him, so he should probably focus on that first

A tie. Blatter to consult with top branches of FIFA before deciding.
