Kinda angry that Russia got it, since England is so close Norway but the most important is that they suceed and make a good WC.

Yeah I know Russia is closer but its impossible to get IN to Russia, even for a Norwegian citizen.

England should of gotten a world cup bid. The atmosphere would of been intense. Russia is a good vote but Qatar makes me mad..

There are a tonne of stadium issues with Australia though.

It IS corruption. Blatter and FIFA are known for this for a long time, and nobody can do anything about it.

But meh, if Qatar is that rich and somehow can work it out, then good for you.

Dubai can make a freakin' ski resort in a desert, and Doha is about the next Dubai now. Soccer stadiums with top-notch cooling systems should be easy for them.

I don't really like the decision but whoever is saying they don't care about the sport in that part of the wold is wrong. Soccer is pretty much the only sport played in the middle east.

Note: Blondie giving me shit for pointing out the terrorist angle for Qatar but the FIFA notes them as (for terrorism) HIGH RISK and none of the other main bidders as HIGH RISK. So be as PC as you like, a country in the midst of terrorist nations might be full of the nicest people on earth, but its still higher risk. And i ger Qatar can build beautiful stadiums, but one of the things in the bid is you have to show a certain amount of the infrastructure is already there. THey have almost nothing done. Everything is promised to be done. The last time the US won the bid the fact they needed to build a few stadiums was a big deal. For South Africa, they got shit for needing to build right before teh WC. But for Qatar, it's ok that they might not only need to build 9 stadiums, but need to revise the existing 3? So they have NONE ready right now?

It's sketchy, i'm sorry. They did not have the best bid. It's not even arguable. Combine this with the money scandals and i think its easy to see something sketchy occured here.
