Surely people will die playing in the heat in Qatar? Unless they put on all the games at night at the same time, which would be so shit.

You plan on kicking the bucket in 20 years time? Im rock and roll but I should still be about!

It ain't gonna be any fun watching big England games from Wembley sat in piss-soaked pyjamas though is it?

Sad day for football because the World Cup is no longer about the football that will be played but everything else which surrounds it.

I played in local league in Muscat whilst I was out there and Im no professional athlete obviously but even at night when we played its still 40+ and very very hard to play. All games played within a 60km radius too.

Some of the plans for Qatar are amazing and they claim the stadiums will have a pitch temp of 26dc but I wonder what the team training pitches etc will be like. Also it's not good to be in an air con climate all the time especially when trying to do physical exertion.

As for Russia… well it seems all the reports etc they do mean fuck all.

we got one vote - the other vote was our own. Oops

smells a bit that Putin refused to go claiming unscrupulous bidding - do you think he may have been bluffing having already paid for the votes?
