Thanks Walbanger. I didn't really want to jump in there.

Has Australia landed other FIFA tournaments besides the one it's after now? U17, Women's, etc.? It's a good way to build up towards a successful bid for the men's senior tournament (if it can be referred to that way). Obviously Melbourne, Sydney, Perth, Adelaide, and Brisbane could host pools, but could Gold Coast and Newcastle. They're borderline large enough now.

Is including New Zealand in a bid out of the question? Australia could do it alone, but a joint bid with NZ might be worth pursuing as well.

You are completely deluded if you even believe 1 word that comes out of Sepp Blatters mouth.

Unlikely, seeing as though they are in another confederation.

I think Australia really deserves the World Cup. Then all continents had a World Cup recently (1994 North America, 2002 Asia, 2006 Europe, 2010 Africa, 2014 South America). It will make football/soccer more popular Down Under

That's quite a long list! Sorry for my ignorance, I take it Australia is now in AFC and not in OFC? Probably a wise move on Australia's part: you need to play stronger teams to get better. I doubt OFC offers much of a fight; they should probably merge it with AFC.

(Can you tell that I don't know anything about this sport. I suppose these ideas have been hashed over a million times already.)

PS Is your avatar Australia's official logo for their campaign to land FIFA 2022?

Yeah, the OFC was pretty much a walk in the park for us - from a competitive standpoint, we couldn't really improve because we weren't even being challenged.

Yeah Aussie swapped to Asia about 5 years ago.Oceania didn't give us enough competition and it became almost impossible to win a cut throat inter-confederation playoff when we would in effect play New Zealand plus small Pacific nations.Some of our wins have been 31-0,22-0,17-0
It looks great but never hardened our teams for either Asia or South America
Re the logo-its been updated,just haven't found one in avatar form
