    Surely in our current heatwave we should bid again.

      They should have thought of that before they let them bid

      Playing it in the Summer would be utterly dangerous lunacy, and playing it in Winter would cause chaos for all the big (and influential) clubs, especially in Europe so I think that's a no-go.

      I think it will be moved elsewhere.

      Will FIFA have to give the bribes back now?
      The best bit of advice I can give is, 'Think for yourself...'

      Even if we didn't qualify, you must be mad to think it wouldn't affect our leagues.

      Would United, Chelsea et al really stand for having (as an estimate) half of their squads missing for 6 weeks in the middle of the season? Not a chance.

      with respect,you are mad if you think Blatter will miss the chance to build FIFA's bank account and did you notice "United chelsea arsenal et al" being able to stop players going to the African Cup of Nations EVERY TWO (not four) years. FIFA wants FIFA will get.

      The World Cup is a rather different kettle of fish from the ACN though, and would involve a FAR larger proportion of top level squads missing from right across Europe.

      It won't happen.

      It is scandalous.

      When that vote took place, if Qatar had said AT THE TIME they couldn't stage it in the summer (ie when they always are) they would have lost, and the USA or Australia would have won and hosted the World Cup.

      They must be furious, and considering legal action against FIFA.

      FIFA have probably known all along it couldn't be hosted in that heat, but decided to give it a few years then try and force the change through.

      It is going to f*ck up all the big Euro leagues. Would the big clubs play on without all their best players, a la rugby during Six Nations and World Cups? Can't see that somehow on the wages they're on. So you're looking at suspension of all those leagues for at least 6/7 weeks mid-season.

      I think the League Cup would be toast that season.
