That 2026 thing is one silver lining for us, the Aussies got hosed though. They can't bid because Qatar is in their federation.

Our bid could've been much better, honestly. We dropped the ball in a lot of areas and Qatar, despite the plethora of issues it presents, never lifted off the accelerator.

Would've preferred England for purely logistical reasons, but Russia is fine too. In fact, all of 2018's bids were fine. Luxembourg should've considered a solo bid though, I mean, look who else won.

Why?

How about because Mexico has already hosted the World Cup twice while many countries have never hosted and a number of others have only hosted once.

Seems like a pretty good reason not to have a third World Cup in Mexico quite yet!

And that means what? Hey! Newcastle is better positioned then Doha because it's near Europe. Doha will be in the middle of the day in Europe and most of us will be in work, actually wait it won't even happen because there will probably be a new a football federation by then because Fifa has become a joke.

You kind of prove my point there since Qatar is roughly the same size as Newcastle. Newcastle would have been a host city if England won the 2018 bid, but it would only have and been able to have had one host stadium, unlike Qatar who for the same population size and not much of a greater land size bigger then the Greater Newcastle area would be hosting the whole Worl Cup.

By the way, it's in the North East of England, about 115 miles south of Edinburgh which is in Scotland.

Does it mean every 3rd or 4th WC in Europe should be held in Britain? That wouldn't be really World Cup, but British International Cup.

Europe has a good two dozen of countries that can host the World Cup. You already hosted it in 1966. Now it's time for other countries. You wait until 2100's. France should wait as well, Germany should wait. And Russia will wait 1,5-2 centuries for a next World Cup as well.

Canada, maybe. But even most Canadians say that's a stretch. They aren't willing to publicly fund a ton of new venues and many of them are in dire need of an upgrade if they're to host.

Mexico? Are you serious? Say that to a real Mexican, not an American who wishes he was a Mexican and he'll slap you. Mexico has bigger fish to fry, like a freaking drug cartel that wants to topple the government. And you think they should spend money on sports?!

I hope our press are all over this, aswell as press form other bidding nations. This has got to bring FIFA crumbling to the ground, it's about time we left them. They will come to us as soon as they want us to play Brazil, Argentina, or even some small nation in the middle of nowhere (Qatar?).

The arguement that FIFA want to bring football to new countries does not hold up when better option were there that would have ticked that box.
2022 should have gone to Australia from that point of view. I wouldn't have disagreed with that.

So, Mexico has already hosted it twice, it will be 5 centuries since England hosted it by the time 2018 comes around, the same time frame you say Russia should wait untill bidding again.


We never asked for it to be held here every 3/4 World Cups, just to be held here in 2018.

Nonsense. There are nothing like 24 European countries that could host the World Cup.

Of course, FIFA set a dangerous precedent by voting for Qatar. But that doesn't mean that every small nation will be able to host the World Cup. Qatar is abnormally wealthy because of oil. They can afford to build a plethora of stadiums that they don't need. No European country can.

I thoroughly hope that the English, Australians, Americans, Dutch, Belgian, Japanese, Koreans, heck, even the Russians, try to get to the root of the problem. I don't want the English FA, or any other FA for that matter, to have any association with FIFA anymore, absolutely ridiculous.

Russia is rife with racism, spectator violence is far worse there than in England and the country is virtually ran by gangsters. Why should the World Cup go there? Because it hasn't hosted it before is not a good enough reason.

Mexico is not the only country who has hosted the WC twice bidding.
Besides FIFA didn't mind.
