FIFA’s 2022 World Cup decision

FIFA’s 2022 World Cup decision

I understand the appeal of holding a WC in the Mid East for the first time, however, if logic prevails (far from a sure thing) the Qatar bid should not go through because:

1) The average high is 115 degrees in July.

4) No drinking in public (though they’ll have some limited exceptions for the WC). The WC has always been, among other things, a giant public booze fest. I just keep thinking, though, that the main thing that’ll drive the result is not how much money FIFA in general will make, but how much money/stuff will end up in the pockets of the individual voting Executive Committee members, right now and when the Cup takes place. and Qatar seems to be playing the game very well, showing that money definitely talks in this process. but most of the Exco members come from countries with plenty of stadia and of those that don’t, Jack Warner is one that will definitely be picking the US. other Exco countries that might benefit are Cameroon, Nigeria, Cyprus, Cote D’Ivoire. Maybe Thailand, Guatemala and Cyprus (if Thailand gets unsuspended)? can they all be guaranteed a stadium? seems unlikely.

to PrinceBuster21’s list add China possibly wanting 2026 or 2030 which would be impossible if anyone but the US wins 2022. Blatter is very concious of the “legacy” issue, and makes no bones about the fact that his greatest achievements to date have been getting WC’s to Asia and Africa. This gives him a pretty fair bit of clout with functionaries from those areas. Given his desire to “make football accessible to all people”, I can easily see him pushing the Qatari bid as a festival of peace, unity and football, or some BS like that. That makes Qatar a serious threat to the US bid.

Will Armenia make the 2014 FIFA World Cup

Will Armenia make the 2014 FIFA World Cup

you dont know anything about soccer so dont speak.

Neither do you fool! The fact that your country’s biggest soccer win was 3 0 v. Albania doesn’t help you much! Even though our soccer sucks, we’re still on the map compared to YOU guys. YOU guys need to make the WC for people to find out about your country otherwise “what the fuck is a ‘Armenia'” ” is all you’ll hear from soccer fans. Ranked 100th? Not good especially considering the fact that we’re ranked 109th for no reason but we’ll beat you guys and move ahead of you guys in the rankings so don’t trip.

You’ll never even make the WC and even if you do you’ll be like Togo you won’t score a goal in your FIRST AND LAST world cup. the world cup is ONLY for countries that are superior than the other.

There you go that outta sum it up for you.

What’s your largest victory? 4 0 over Liechtenstein. That’s hilarious you guys r on the map. Teams want to vs u guys bc its an easy victory. We beat Poland when they where top 20. We beat them when they finished ahead of Portugal in our group. We tied Portugal, Serbia. We beat Belgium. We were beating France 2 1 when they had zidane and djorkaef. Has your country ever been ranked under 100? No. We wanted to play u guys but u were to scared so the games were cancelled. Armenian soccer is better and will always be better. Don’t talk.
