    Russia [and USA!] decided before vote - Blatter

    Presumably playing some game he thinks he can win, but I'm still surprised he's being so candid.

    He's the sort of bloke who thinks he can talk and bribe his way out of anything, that weird mix of self belief amid the fact that everyone else on planet earth thinks he's an utter cunt. Even when it gets to the point where his lawyers will be telling him to shut the fuck up, he just can't stop himself.

    Silva This went well.

    In this case, I think he feels he's already screwed, and is just making sure all those that led to this situation won't be laughing either. Deliberately dragging Platini (who has been very happily on "things must change, so elect me" from day one) down with him seems to match that pattern.

    Teaboy It definitely looks brighter over there..

    Laugh away its probably bullshit anyway. What it almost certainly is though, is the opening salvo in a too ill to stand trial defence.

    Please don't slander his name like that. Comparing a fictional mafia bosses crimes with Sepp Blatter is extremely unfair to Jnr.
