Obviously I hope England win as I think we have the best bid by far to host it.
 
We have about three dozen grounds that fill the creteria without even having to spend another penny on building grounds that might not be done in time.
 
Our public services such as trains/planes makes it very easy to get to where you want quickly too.

1) We have the better grounds.
 
2) We have the better transport system.
 
3) We have a multi culutral country.
 
4) We aren't racist.
 
5) We don't make things complicated with different time zones.
 
6) It's our national sport.
 
7) We were the only bid that could cope if the world cup tomorrow.
 
8) We could guarantee sold out stadiums at every game unlike Russia.
 
 
Russia would have been my last choice of the four to get it. If not us it should have been Spain/Portugal.

Nah Football as the sport we invented is our number one sport for people watching. We got 100% in all five catergories by FIFA, Blatter called the bid remarkable, and yet we only got two votes out of twenty two. One of which was our own guy voting. If having the grounds, transport, weather etc to host it on top of having a world known guy like Beckham, royalty, and the PM on the case doesn't get us the vote we never will. When I think of Russia I think of bad crime, corruption, cold weather, artificial pitches, vodka, and Anna Chapman. I don't think football.

yes, we are.


I agree the English bid had more going for it at first glance than the Russian bid, especialy with the changes being made to London in preparation for the Olympics, but this business has never been solely about who will be able to fill stadiums the best.

Look at South Africa, so many matches were played at 50% capacity stadiums. Its all political just the asme as Olympic bids

We really dont.



Quote 2) We have the better transport system.


Debatable, they have links to 2 continents (a direct train to Asia) and easy access from USA, while everyone here complains about train delays, waiting for buses etc.



Quote 4) We aren't racist.


lol you must be joking. Have you not seen the shoutbox today?



Quote 6) It's our national sport.


Its theirs too.

Portugal got the Euros 6 yrs ago, it wouldnt be fair for them to get this too, joint bid or not.

We do have the olympics in 2012 and to be honest, who gives a crap who has it? The football will be amazing, the whole world will be watching and we'll have the usual misguided optimism that England should do well.

We have the best grounds, transport, football league, fans, would have made FIFA the most money, and have a multicultural society.
 
Clearly they are paying us back for the Sunday Times report the other week and the Panarama documentary on monday night.
 
We've got Champions League final 2011, Olympics in 2012, Commonwealth games in 2014, and Rugby world cup in 2015 so those events will show FIFA what they are missing not picking us.

We have the best fans, thats about it.

Theres no fix, or FIFA bias. The decision was made before that documentary came out.
