Well, like I said - I hope you are right.
But the village green thing is around a thousand years old I think and it's not something people can just brush aside at will when it suits them.

Alongside the word "power" in the dictionary, you will not see "the IOC" or the "UN". You will see "FIFA". I am afraid 20 residents opposing the site stand no chance.
Good analogy

Except that it was a tip
I think there is plenty of time and the original plan will succeed with some sweeteners of course

David Beckham has given England's 2018 World Cup bid a massive boost by promising to coach youngsters round the world for free if the campaign is successful. Former England skipper Becks will show his support for the bid by giving 200 youngsters and coaches a workshop and skills programme in Trinidad this weekend.

Beckham is the most popular public face of the England bid and a huge draw for the 24 FIFA Executive Committee members who hold the campaign's fate in their hands in Zurich on December 2.

And the Three Lions' most-capped outfield player has pledged to stage similar courses with the David Beckham Academy in all six FIFA Confederations over the next six years if the vote goes England's way.

Beckham suggested this week's course, part of a football festival in Trinidad and Tobago, when he met influential CONCACAF President Jack Warner in Cape Town last December.

Warner effectively controls three votes on FIFA's key body and his support is vital for the England bid as they face what increasingly looks like a showdown with Russia for the right to host the biggest show on earth.

Beckham, along with bid chiefs Andy Anson and David Dein, will also be attending the FIFA women's Under-17 World Cup Final in Port of Spain while the project will demonstrate how the global concept could work, illustrating England's promise that a successful bid will have a legacy effect around the entire footballing planet.

The former England skipper said: "I am extremely proud and committed to the David Beckham Academy. The proposal with England 2018 is an exciting one as football is such a great way to inspire and educate young people in so many ways."

In a very positive move for the England bid, Warner publicly thanked Beckham and added: "It is heartening to know that a man of such international stature remains committed to the development of talent worldwide.

"This is remarkable opportunity for the 200 participants. The fact that despite his busy schedule David has taken the time to open this festival, to share his knowledge with the children is testament to his character."

Seems like a real nice guy. How sad that we have to pander to these types of people. Maybe that's what makes them the arseholes they are; the power they have every four years to have people squirming and licking their boot laces.

I think if the World Cup came here to England then they would need to seriously think about putting a lot of money into the road system. Although I would rate our roads good they simply just wouldn't cope with the volumes of traffic in certain areas. Even now I think the government isn't spending enough on looking after the roads. I would hope that would be included in the bid somewhere?!

I have asked this elsewhere but it seems impossible to get an answer.

Why is London not hosting the entire WC on its own?

<sarcasm>London can't host its own WC until it gets over 300,000 "Likes" on Facebook. Better luck in 2026!</sarcasm>

I guess theoretically Spurs, Arsenal, Fulham, Chelsea, West Ham, QPR, Crystal Palace, Millwall and Charlton could all play at home one weekend.

My sentiments exactly. It's degrading to have Warner criticising England's bid when he has personally been involved in no fewer than three major financial scandals during his time at FIFA. What on Earth gives him the right to speak about fair play?

Horrible, weasley man who would have been pushed out of FIFA a long time ago were it not as corrupt as he.

That would get half of the rest of FIFA's exec committee fired.

Blatter: we want to fire you
Weasel: i will tell everybody about everything
Blatter: ok but be good from now on
