lol, pretty much all the stadiums are white elephants. As I have said Qatar is a land of the fairies bid based on unproven technologies, graphic design videos/images and paid off people who have nothing to do with Qatar because Qatar hasn't produced a single decent footballer and hasn't qualified for even a single world cup, more than half their team is bought and 3/4's of their population aren't even citizens i.e they are people there to work who couldn't give a toss about Qatar, even with those 3/4's they still got nobody. There are no tourist destinations such as in other middle eastern nations such as Egypt and quite frankly it's just embarrassing in every sense of the manner.

Basically although much needs to happen -USA have to withdraw from 2018(where they are actually a huge chance to win),the ExCo reports have to be submitted before Qatars bid is formally dismissed,the voting procedure agreed on etc

Things are still very tight between the compliant bids

Seriously, Qatar should just ******* pull out. If Australia gets knocked out first round because Qatar bought African votes I will be totally pissed off. No chance of Qatar hosting so why hasn't FIFA closed the book on this mickey mouse bid already?

Thats what YOU say, but FIFA might see it in another way, or else it would have been eliminated a very long time ago, but IT DIDN'T HAPPEN, yes it rises some eyebrows, but lets see what happens on the 2nd of December. since technically, there is no shortlist for WC bidding.

It hasn't been eliminated, because there has been no official FIFA gathering yet.

No, they could have done it before, why was FIFA able to reject Indonesia's 2022 bid on 19,3,2010 but not Qatar ?

Indonesia technically withdrew, Indonesian goverment sent a letter to FIFA unsure whether or not they'd be willing to spend the money on the WC as they had to look after the people first. FIFA saw this and decided it'd be unfeasable if a country that can't support it's people should waste their money of the FIFA WC/BID.

I dont care whether WC goes to England, Russia, Oz or USA.

I just dont want it to go to Qatar, and if by some fluke they win, there should be an immdeiate investigation of everyone voting for it as it will not win on merit - only on the amount of Golden Falcons given away....

Wow

Incidentally, I STILL cannot find a single website which gives attendences for Qatari league matches!! Where did you get this figure from? Could you provide a link if you know of a source which lists Qatar's domestic crowds?

Thanks.
