I think I need to do a separate branch for every host city of Russia 2018. For example:
Russia 2018
-Krasnodar
-Stadium
-Infrastructure
-Tourism
similar in all the cities

2018 will be for England and 2022 for Australia. Perfect if you ask me, although Russia should also be good.

Same here, I'd like a World Cup in the Netherlands but not under the preposterous terms set by the FIFA, here is to having some self-respect and not get taken up from behind by Blatter and friends. I'm praying that the Spain & Portugal Bid doesn't win because that simply means that the Netherlands will still end up paying the bill for the World Cup.

England has the best football culture indeed, it's a stable first-world country without the dubious governments that some other bidding nations have. Same thing counts for Australia and the United States. Qatar is a joke, let's face it if it gets selected it would destroy any credibility FIFA has. Football is commercialized enough as it is, I'd rather not have the World Cup become the celebration of some despotic Oil Sheik.

Well, we've already had world cups in Gaul and Bohemia. I don't think we should discriminate against the Angles or the Jutes.

Our country spending so much money for Sochi - 2014 - first reason
infrastructure in England and B&N more better then in Russia (road, train, airport, hotel etc.) - second reason
and football in this countries on a high level, then here - third reason

that's all

No one normal reason.

The cost of WC events are 600-700 mln. Everything else - airports, railways, roads, stadiums, etc. - will be built, but with WC it will be faster and better.

You are just one of those who don't think widely.

USA 2022

As a person who is British, but has studied and travelled around the United States...you are talking out of your arse.

It appears as if you're being outright racist against English speaking nations.
Edit: To give you credit, there are some areas of the U.S. that are kind of English-y, the New England region (obviously). But don't forget the most populace ethnic background in the United States is German, Irish, African, Latino and Eastern European.

I wouldn't like Spain/Portugal either, after Brazil. Of course there is difference in cultures, but much less than between other countries. Just my point of view and we don't have to discuss. What's racist about that? Have you travelled around Russia or China as well? I assume that these countries are more different to England than USA, isn't it?

That's the point, you assume. You can't make sweeping generalisations about an entire countries culture based upon what language they speak. I would say American culture is as diverse and different to English culture as Russian is, we just speak the same language (kind of). Fair enough let's just agree to disagree.
