    Apparently Geoff Hurst's goal may not have been over the line. Footage has emerged of Harold Wilson handing a 10 Guinea postal order to a certain Russian linesman. :(

    You need the 2 year rigmerole of producing bid dossiers (which you'll ignore), going on trips (to get freebies and perks) and all the back door negotiations (including brown envelopes, arms deals and all the rest)...

    Fifa consider this all srs bzns, no laughing matter :mad:
    (A big part of me wants to think it was simply because it was such a shit joke, rather than because it was aimed at Fifa)

    Belgium to sue FIFA if fraud in the bidding process for the 2018 world cup is proven. I would guess that the other unsucessful bidders would follow suit - and that the same would go for the 2022 games.
    And if russia and/or quatar are stripped of the games then they will look to sue FIFA as well.

    So a total legal cluster fuck all round. What are the chance of FIFA dissolving completely? We can but hope i suppose.

    Wonder of this would pre-empt any issue with the US authorities?

    Blatter suspended. Finally.

    Also Platini - hopefully that kills any chance he has of taking over. FIFA needs a serious cleaning out, I honestly can't see that anyone coming from any of the various federations would have any credibility at the moment.

    Dreyfus. The same bloke who fronted the money that put Uli Hoeness in jail for his tax dodgery... the Munich mafia's time's up... What's the betting Nike are sponsors of the WC very soon?

    & fair do's to Andrew Jennings for calling all this nigh on a decade ago.
