    I think that Britain has just saved itself a huge bundle of money - and I for one won't be going anywhere near Russia for any of those events...as regards to Quatar...that has to be a joke......Jack Warner must be a millionaire now..along with some others

    I hope Germany wins the 2018 World Cup Final.
    It would be nice to see a German Victory in Moscow.

    Am I the only one who said "Phew, thank God for that" when the decision was announced :unsure::unsure:
    Yes me!!!! :) Not cos I dont like football cos I do but because I dont think England should be spending more shed loads of money on sporting events when we have enough debt as it is.... Perhaps if FIFA were paying for the stuff to be built etc.... Fat chance of that.

    Wouldn't that cocky little Frenchman (Bonaparte I mean, not Sarkozy) reckon that they're first in line ? :)

    Apparently Australia wasted 52 Million on their bid and even used the Prime Minister, not that it did any good. It seems FIFA thinks we would lose money if we hosted it here, so I wonder how Russia can afford it??
    By the sounds of things it is a good thing not to have it here!!

    regards

    Travelled from Moscow international airport to another Moscow airport to fly to Tyumen Siberia, and the journey literally took hours. They have a big job to get their roads up to snuff. Be interesting to see how they manage it.

    Hi all,
    personally I am pleased to see another nail in football's coffin. Corrupt, overpaid, loud mouthed, arrogant yobs who both reflect our dumbed down culture and have played a huge part in that dumbing down. Solution: limit football to a two hour slot on a Saturday afternoon and make it illegal for anyone involved in football to get paid more than the national average. Better still make professional football illegal.

    FIFA is just ruining the game. I couldn't give a toss about the WC anymore.

    Found this thread that Clive started from 2010 even older than the other Russia 2018 thread he started in 2014.
