Supermarket chain Morrisons have called upon FIFA to dole out £1 million in the way of compensation to British 'grassroots' football, in return for what they are calling an 'unfair' World Cup bidding process.

SoccerLens at related • 0 views

FIFA's erstwhile despot president Sepp Blatter has branded the English as 'bad losers' in the wake of the recent World Cup auction which saw Russia and Qatar purchase the rights to host the 2018 and 2022 tournaments respectively.

Upon crashing out of the 'ballot' in the first round with a paltry total of two votes (one from themselves, and one from the main butt of BBC Panorama's 'potentially devastating' exposé into the institutionalised corruption within football's governing body Cameroonian ExCo member Issa Hayatou), the England 2018 team reacted with a flurry of frothing self-entitlement and a brief swathe of measly protests, which were all about as half-cocked as the bid attempt itself.

Panorama: The Right Programme At The Right Time

Have we completely missed the point?Â

I watched investigative journalist Andrew Jennings' Panorama programme on extensive bribe-taking among high-ranking FIFA executive committee members (unlike England 2018 bid chief Andy Anson, it would seem). So I find it hard to imagine that any of those named would vote for England to host the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and I doubt whether England will "get" any World Cup in the lifetime of Sepp Blatter or his fellow-travellers in the FIFA hierarchy – present and future.

The game was the only weather casualty in the entirety of the professional game across England and Scotland – a mind blowing situation that owed much to bad planning and which was unbecoming for a stadium which was one the England 2018 bid's chosen host venues.
