World Cup 2018 – and the winner is… Russia!

Brilliant, thanks a lot

Miserable fans

With their addled minds overloaded with memories of Arshavin’s moving monologue, Gullit’s impressive Apprentice bike pitch, the Spanish men flashing up buzz words like “gourmet” to whet Fifa appetites, David Beckham’s hilarious childhood anecdotes, Fifa’s Executive Committee have finally spoken.

And the winner is… RUSSIA!

It was Arshavin that done it.

More reaction to come, once The Spoiler has stopped going totally berserk at London Bridge.

In other big news, IT’S SNOWING!

    Does nobody else find it a bit suspicious that the Holland/Belgium bid recieved 4 votes in the forst round, but only two in the second?

    Its effectively saying that two people watched all the presentations, read all the details of the bids over the last year, decided the Holland/Belgium bid was best, and then changed their mind after 1 round of voting!

    Hate to cry conspiracy but the optimal strategy to derail the England bid was to vote Holland in the first round, and then vote accordingly in the following rounds.

    I don’t see why it was necessarily the optimal strategy to derail England’s bid per se, but it sure smells of fish…

    I noticed that too and it did seem a bit strange. And no offense to Belgium/Holland and the others, but it seems very weird that England would get voted off so early after being such a strong and hyped bid. Also all the false promises sound a bit too much like voluntarily leading on England..
