We've also made it out of the knock-out round more recently.

Tony if I see you say England should be given the hosting rights one more time I will throw my computer. This is really getting old pal. There's nothing wrong with Russia hosting in 2018 and 2022 shou

Someone needs to sue FIFA over this mess. Rivals bidders, European leagues and clubs, TV networks, sponsors, players...all are being mucked about because of FIFA's inability to think properly. The bi

In an ideal world it would go to a revote, but it would most likely go to the US as they came runners up. You simply revamp the next bidding process by allowing everyone else to do bidding again and scrapping the continental rotation.

Don't know where else to put this, but as the old expression goes.. "them's fightin' words!"..

Winter Olympics May Have to Move for 2022 World Cup

For those of you out there who read the headline only and react to that without actually looking at the article.. this is coming from someone tied to European football, not someone from FIFA or the IOC. Which is to say that it's probably not to be taken very seriously and that the headline is somewhat misleading.

I don't understand why so many people here in the USA want to bail FIFA out. They made a terrible decision to award the games to Qatar, and they should have to live with it now.

Well, they're going to pick a replacement host anyway (if they are); and the US came in #2; so by all rights, it should go to the US. Is that such a big brainer to figure out?? :rolleyes:

We could sit back and laugh at FIFA.... or, we could host the World Cup. Easy choice. Especially since it's really... We could laugh at FIFA and not host the World Cup... or we could host the World Cup *and* laugh at FIFA.

2022 World Cup.. forever unclean! It's been tainted!!

Not the United States' responsibility to bail out FIFA here. If FIFA decides they need to be bailed out, that's on them to say they don't want the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. Only then can they proceed towards finding a replacement host. Until then, it's moot.

Laugh at FIFA and not host it!

If Qatar is stripped at least it should go to another Muslim country like London, England.

6 times the size of Doha and it has about 200k more Muslims! A London World Cup would be a far more sensible idea!

We should have 5 (or even 6) stadiums of 60k+ by then.

Stadium cooling technology not needed either. Just ask Arsene...

Arsene Wenger, the Best Football Manager in the World.

Anyway, like I have said before, America has Hosted more recently then England has. Let England Host the Fifa World Cup.

You make it sounds as it we here are responsible for England not having hosted a World Cup since 1966 and we're preventing it from happening. As opposed to the corrupt weasels over at FIFA. They're the ones who 'let' countries host the World Cup.

Anyway, like I have said before, we all know how long it's been since England last hosted a World Cup. You need not keep reminding us as if your wishes are going to turn into results. Enough already.

They can't give the 2022 world cup to a European country, Tony, because 2018 is in Russia. If they change the host from Qatar, it still has to be either Asia or North America.

FIFA will never reform until its revenue stream is threatened. They would make a huge amount of money with another world cup in the USA, so it would not really accomplish anything to host it here. An absolute debacle of a world cup in Qatar that hurts their sponsors and broadcasters could actually force some changes.

Winning one national title in a decade and no international title ever is quite some accolade for the best manager in the world.

If FIFA needs a stand-in and there's no time to re-run the bid process, I don't think continental rotation will be their biggest concern. But I think they'd look at recent WC hosts before England. Germany being a back up certainly isn't beyond the realms of possibility.

I'm not sure it's what Germany would want though - same as with the US, why should *we* bail FIFA out of their self-inflicted misery? Especially if/when it is already known that Euro 2024 would be coming anyway, so there's not even a craving for another tournament after many years of waiting.

Actually, 2 Trophies in 9 Years. But We built a brand new Modern Stadium (The Emirates and were Building a Team). We have Won Trophies again and will carry on Winning Trophies Again.
