      Have you seen their forward, Noel Yuletide, he's an absolute master of unwrapping defences in the box!

      The number of European teams is rising from 13 to 16...

      Yay. Scotland will get a chance to be in it.

      It's a bit worrying that they're going back to the idea of a last group game being played on its own - that means a few more convenient 0-0 draws. It's never good for football when teams know what they have to get

      More games/More teams = More cash for FIFA.

      No surprise in this decision then.
      First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me - Martin Niemoller

      Did they also approve the bit about "no draws", but having a penalty shoot out instead? If so I think I may find something better to do than to watch.

      Oh, and I think the accountants are a lot more than 1-0 up against proper football

      Expanding the tournament has already ruined the Euros, this will do the same to the World Cup. Totally shit idea but no surprise it's going ahead as FIFA will make an extra billion or so from it.

      Will end up a tournament like champions league and will run all year .So hope i am wrong , but if thats what generates most money they will.
      Its time separate associations start to stand up to this or better still break away from the corrupt organisation that it is .
      I just love the East Upper !!
