Unfortunately he didn’t break his neck though.
After last weeks ‘fair and transparent voting for the hosting of the 2018 and 2022 world cups’, I thought it was only fair that I aired one of the greatest moments in FIFA’s recent shameful history on my blog.
Just to clarify my position. I’m not pissed off with the fact that Russia were awarded the 2018 world cup, I’m not a little Englander who thinks we should have got the world cup as ours was (apparently) the best bid.
Russia deserved the 2018 world cup, they were due their turn and they’ve rightly got it.
What I’m pissed off about is the way the vote was fixed to eliminate England in the 1st round, how could we really have come last in that process? I’m also disgusted at the way Australia were treated (not their bowlers though) in the bidding for the 2022 world cup. The whole process stank and should never be allowed to happen again.
Interesting line in today’s Sunday Times, I see they are claiming that certain FIFA executive members sold their votes for $1.5 Million. Never!
