IT’S NOT COMING HOME

2 12 2010

Well there it is;  the World Cup 2018 will not be coming home to the nation that gave football to the world.

Instead it is off to Russia and whilst I  have nothing but congratulations for the newly affirmed host nation I can’t help but feel a little disappointed that by the time it is even possible for their to be a world cup hosted here in England I will be old and grey.

The lift that a successful world cup bid would have given to the nation would have been huge and not just for die-hard supporters such as I.

The suggestion that this is all one big fix are rolling in and will continue to do so for sometime, not helped by the supposed official leaks that were coming out up to 30 minutes before the results were announced lauding Russia as having won.

One thing that does need to be seriously looked into is the allegations of major corruption within FIFA itself, the thought of going through an other bidding process with the same bribe taking officials in charge is quite frankly ludicrous.

But there is no point lingering on what might have been and what isn’t, instead we should look forward to the spectacle that will be London 2012 and focus on what really matters trying to win the world cup in 2014.
