And u really think the FIFA executives will be swayed by a few high-powered 'friendlies'? You think they won't see thru the camoflouge? If you fattened their private bank accounts at the same time, then those veneer 'friendlies' would probably work.

As for this friendly game, Free holiday anyone? If you pay for all these high profile people to come along, how is that showing anything?

Its a baseless exercise to use this as an example to promote a bid, especially when the local team is not even involved. How is that helping build relevance for the game in your own country if you pay big money for other teams to play, but ignore your own? Very weird logic.

The evaluation commitees findings were damning, to the point that the US have called for Qatar to be excluded from voting, and even 2018 bidding countries and their media are expressing shock that you are still in the running, after so many issues of non-compliance. If Qatar does win, it will just show how corrupt the process is, so it will only damage FIFA, after their own reports state that it is a flawed bid.

Firstly, I'd like to point out, the main reason I'm hoping Qatar lose now, is to annoy waqif.

He/she is a troll and has nothing useful to say.

I'd like to point out Australia never did bid for the AFC in 2011.
and quite frankly the AFC Cup isn't very important.

Write off the opinion all you like, but the World is already saying it. Just because you are unwilling to listen or accept it, the reality is that a Qatari win in this bid will just prove many things that people already think about FIFA.

Peace to all

I second this.

Must be the king of factually misleading or trivial statements, which only go to annoy others

Is there a motion supported by all bidders to exclude Qatar? I thought it was just the US that had protested, but hadnt heard about support from all other bidding nations.

If there is, that will be very interesting. If they have not met the requirements, yet are still allowed to continue, theres more ammunition for the worlds media to claim corruption at FIFA. They are treading a very tight line there.

Some comments fro the evaluation report, almost exactly what has been raised in terms of the concerns of the Qatar bid.

Quote:
While the idea of hosting a compact competition in a small area is innovative,these very aspects together with the number of matches per day (three to four) played in very close proximity, could raise questions with regards to logistics and security
Quote:
Additionally, the fact that the bid is alrgely based on projected generic and event specific infrastructure represents a risk by restricting FIFA's contingency plan.

Qatar rated riskiest as World Cup venue

AAP - November 20, 2010, 8:30 am
FIFA has rated Qatar its riskiest option to organise a World Cup in 2018 or 2022, according to detailed technical evaluations of all nine bids published on Friday.
Qatar is classed a "high" operational risk to plan and stage the monthlong tournament in 2022, while Russia is rated a "medium" risk to host in 2018. Both bids plan to spend tens of billions of dollars on stadiums and infrastructure projects such as airports.
FIFA's technical inspection team rated seven other bidders, which have most or all of their stadiums already in place, as overall "low" risk options for football's governing body.
Three bidders - the United States, Belgium-Netherlands and Japan - were rated "medium" risk in legal planning because FIFA said they did not fully provide guarantees of government support underwriting the project.
US lawmakers passed a resolution on Wednesday that encouraged federal agencies to "meet all requirements" for hosting in 2022.
England and Spain-Portugal scored best in the ranking, being rated "medium" risk in just two of 17 categories which included stadiums, transport, team facilities and legal guarantees from governments and host cities.
The reports were compiled based on four-day visits by an inspection panel to each bid between July and September.
Designed to inform executive committee members before their Dec. 2 secret ballot in Zurich, FIFA published the detailed and graded assessments two days after releasing summarised weaknesses of each bid.
That report also highlighted concerns that Qatar's desert heat posed a health risk to players and officials, and that Russia would rely heavily on air transport to move teams and fans around the country.
The 2018 contest features England, Russia, and joint bids from Belgium-Holland and Spain-Portugal.
The 2022 candidates are the United States, Australia, Japan, South Korea and Qatar.

Blatter is supposedly trying to kick out Qatar, let's hope it's correct. This bid thinks it can change FIFA, I mean look at it, it FAILS pretty much every single requirement. The risk is not HIGH RISK, it's even beyond that. WARNING CODE RED CODE RED

Had you any doubts about the high risks to host WC in Qatar, that has alla stadia in 60 km. But it is a challenge, I think FIFA should give a possibility to see the organization in Qatar the impossible become possible.

They don't deserve to host the world cup, it's always been the fact, they are the ultimate disgrace to international football. You can get no worse. They have failed almost everything in the technical report, why should they get special treatment compared to anyone else? They shouldn't that's the FACT. Qatar's bid should be kicked out immediately, they have survived even far too long even up until now. The first arab world cup should be in Egypt, a beautiful country, with beautiful people, tourist destinations and a really good football team. Qatar's bid is a total utter farce.

Do you want to see a WC in Japan or in Korea, that hosted a WC 8 years ago, 20 in 2022, or in USA, that hosted the tournament in 1994 and stadia are so boring. We have tested a WC in these countries no many years ago.

So you have Australia and Qatar, but las one is so fascinating. Sure, they had to thought a joint bid with EAU and Bahrain, but let give a possibility. It 's a novelty, give the possibility and we stay to see.

WC isn't trial tournament for some nations that think that they might organize it. I prefer boring and quality in that case. Thanks.
