I think as far as aircon goes they were on about having stadiums with a roof, or American 'dome' style shite. So indoor football basically, which is wrong enough in it's own right.

In recognition of the new international sporting standards though, the IOC have just announced the 2012 Men's 100 metres final is going to be held in Endcliffe Park.

I am currently working in Qatar, the place is very corrupt, although not easily seen, there are many deals done on contracts by the ruling families, they are a very rich nation due to the gas reserves. Richest country in the world per capita head - the rest of the nation are expats either building the place or working in the oil and gas sector.

The construction going on here is insane and in 10 years time they will have the infrastructure to host the cup - - but they have a lot to do to be ready for the world cup in terms of organisation and logistics. I am sure some fat cat consultants will make a lot of money out of advising them.

When the decision was announced I nearly pissed myself laughing.

Bribes for Votes - never :*:

Best thing about Qatar ? Qatar Airways

Oh and by the way - there are rumours here that they are already offering tallented african and south american kids families luxury lifestyles / villas / cars in exchange for them becoming Qatari Nationals so they can play in their team in 10 years time.

Out of interest does anyone know if the World Cup has ever been held in Scandinavia or Russia or somewhere cold? Seems like it's always being held in hot countries. Personally I'd like to see it in Iceland.

Sweden 58 -Pele's first World Cup. Not Scandinavian but Switzerland in 54 is canny cold. I am trying not to think about Qatar, the more I do the less chance I'll live long enough to see it. It's entirely wrong. If they had an indigenous football league and a popualtion to support it I'd just about get it but like way, just corrupt
