which year will be the lucky year


best forum-friends, im proud to present you this thread with an enthousiasm after that; yesterday, 13.03.2022 the greek prime minister mitsotakis came to istanbul on invitation of erdoğan.. the photo beneath is taken from the official guesthouse "the-vahdettin-villa" with the bosphorus on the background..

this remembered me the first ever bid from türkiye in 2008 to co-host with greece back then.. the turkish national team came third in 2008 (with the co-hosting of AUT-SWI).. the best placement ever at an euro tournament. 




As the other thread of "2028 Euros" is actually a preliminary thread, when the date of 23.03.2022 comes closer to an end about the allocation of the 2028 euro (& and maybe a double allocation of the 2032 euro) hosting.. in this thread we can continue to discuss the further course of the eventually turkish FA bids & candidature/s for after 2028 with the aim to organize the european football championships on turkish soil..

>> source-2: UEFA Euro 2032 - Wikipedia


Meanwhile i made a time-span & grid of the 3 official logos produced at that time out of the 5 consecutive bids. Türkiye has build up a euro-hosting-bid-history with each time elevating the quality of the bids simultaniously with the needed infrastructure of transport/stadiums etc.. in 2030 there will be built about between 12.000 and 13.000 km of high speed rails to increase the infrastructure in host everything in the near future and of course this infrastructure/stadium-legacy will be enourmous for generations to come..

last but not least.. 

the uefa-euro debate will go parallel with that of the istanbul-bidding for an eventually olympic-games in the future.. this debate is ongoing on the other thread.. istanbul can be the follow-up of respectively AS Brazil 2014 world-cup & Rio olympics 2016.. >> EURO 2032 - Istanbul 2036 - EURO 2040 .. (maybe or perhaps or not at all) ^_^

Turkey is actually game ready for a EURO believe it or not.  Just about 95 percent.  A few of the stadiums would need to be spruced up, but they have a lot of the stadiums already.  Shame about their "giants" having financial troubles, but makes it more fun seeing teams like Trabzonspor getting title shots.

I think if anything has shown us in the last few years, being „game ready“ cannot be the only reason to award international sports events.

As long as Erdo is there, Turkey is simply a no go, or at least should be. Even if it is 120% game ready.



in the last 2 weeks i had plenty of time to do soms research/findings/analysis about your comment-behaviour to be certain if you are consistent are not in your way of thinking and/or if you are hypocrite or not? As i gave you already answers here at this link >> 2028 Euros - Page 2 - Other International Games / Bids - GamesBids.com Forums

1// first of all I regretfully condemn you, because you dont show respect to my democratically elected president.. Erdoğan is not your roommate!! you throw mud on my president and then you step aside.. thats unnoble of you.. i read a lot of your comments regarding german issues.. for you own country you write with precaution .. but about issues about turkey you play resolute the hypocrisy.. you are not let alone a LİAR but you are consistent writing manipulation!!


2// you are in contradiction with yourself: people who do hate a certain person wont use an shortened name of that person to be ironic/cynic.. this shows the one and only thing of your personality: you are systematically discriminating in your own wishfull pro-negative way the most senior leader in the world.. in the last 2 weeks +/- 30 world leaders came to türkiye to speak with erdoğan.. the last was your own leader, German Chancelor SCHOLZ  >>  https://foto.haberler.com/haber/2022/03/14/almanya-basbakani-olaf-scholz-ilk-kez-turkiye-de-14796072_4313_amp.jpg ..

- did you ever think why they coming in a row to ERDOĞAN??

- what is the global strategy of those leaders with ERDOĞAN??

- why do they need the help of ERDOĞAN, especially why is Germany calling for turkish help!!

- why do they believe (especially germany) that there wont be a solution without support/help/aid/backing of ERDOĞAN??

- why do all those leaders (especially SCHOLZ) think that ERDOĞANS PRESİDENTSHİP is one the only guarantees for Germany's future!!


3// you are lacking a lot of analytic-thinking >> your sentences are your own wishfull theory that goes nowhere, lets have a look what your formula is;

- "I think if anything has shown us in the last few years" >> can you tell the gamesbids-forums community WHAT İS THE "if anything"??

- "being „game ready“ cannot be the only reason to award international sports events" >> but at the end it did.. turkey got those international sports events!!

- "being „game ready“ cannot be the only reason" >> which/what are the other reasons seen from your point of view?? be a real man and explain, dont hide!!

- "As long as Erdo is there, Turkey is simply a no go" >> what if ERDOĞAN isnt there, would turkiye get those international sports events?? MEANWHİLE turkiye GOT those international (as i mentioned above in the list) when ERDOĞAN was/is in charge with his team in his own PRESİDENTSHİP.. with or without ERDOĞAN turkiye will get those

- "As long as Erdo is there, Turkey is simply a no go" >> ERDOĞAN (and his team) is the only guarantee to realize those international sports events..  Because HE IS A VİSİONARY and REVOLUTIONARY LEADER.. He plays a dessecive role for the security of europe.. and MOST of the germans/europeans know that..


4// you are JUST A MARGINAL )of those MARGINAL GROUPS) who brings in a persistent way my country & president in discredit.. STOP WITH THAT.. you tell consistenly lies with your fabricated theories, you are creating slanders towards my country/president..

5// so as from now i wont answer you anymore because WITH YOUR 2 DISPETIOUS SENTENCES YOU ARE SIMPLY A NO GO ;)
