Qatar may be stripped of World Cup, says Blatter (http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/football/news-and-comment/qatar-may-be-stripped-of-world-cup-says-blatter-2286520.html)


The Fifa president Sepp Blatter made the startling disclosure yesterday that he could not rule out a rerun of the voting for the right to host the 2022 World Cup finals which was controversially won by the tiny Arab emirate of Qatar in December.

Blatter, who is seeking re-election next month for a fourth term, said that a Fifa inquiry into claims made by The Sunday Times that there was corruption in the vote could lead to the Fifa executive committee (ExCo) voting again. It would represent the biggest U-turn in the governing body's history.
:eek: :bribe: :sekret:

This ought to be interesting.:watch:

Interesting isn't, Blatter is up against a Qatari, Mohamed bin Hammam for FIFA presidency. If Qatari loses FIFA election, which is very likely, they will loss FIFA world cup as well its seems and you could also see them slapped with some other sanctions as well.

There is a big of a hullabaloo is England right now involving Giggs and an extra-marital affairs and his efforts to keep the story quiet. It is the sort of a person's right to privacy vs the public right to know type thing.

Barca wins 3-1. They had the ball for 70% of the game to Man U's 30%. They outshot Man U 20 to 3. Overall Barcelona just proved that they are the best team on the planet by defeating a very good Man U team. My congrats to Barca.

NJL (..but, I'm beginning to think of Barca the way I think of the Yankees & Canadien teams of yesteryear...far too good to be liked by any one but home town fans...their defeat is a cause for delight...;)...)

I am happy for Barca because Man U just did not show up for today's match. I am a bit bummed right now. :(

On another more unpleasant note; Mohammed Bin Hamman has withdrawn from the race to become FIFA's next president leaving only Sepp Blatter in the running. It is certain now that he will be elected unopposed for yet another term despite all the rumours and accusations flying back and forth. I know FIFA will do nothing at all about the corruption that has stunk up the organisation. Especially if Blatter stays in charge.

So no investigation into Sepp Blatter himself and Bin Hammam and Warner are both temporarily suspended. FIFA stinks of corruption and needs a total overhaul but that does not seem likely at all.

Man U showed up and actually did fairly well. Man U's loss had nothing to do with their not showing up. They simply played a team that Sir Alex called the best he's ever seen. This win certainly cements Barca's place as the best team around right now, and, probably, one of the best of all time, if not the best of all time. That's the reason Man U lost. They simply met a far superior opponent.

Interesting that Guardiola says he'll only promise he'll spend one more year at Barca. I wonder where he'll go after his term at Barca?

Yep, it's corrupt. I think that if they get rid of the 2 people mentioned they clean it up a bit. I can't speak about bin Hammam, but Warner is the CONCACAF rep and is not at all well liked here for various reasons. Corruption being part of it. His suspension/banning from FIFA would be a plus, IMO.

BAH! I hope Barca losses to Rubin Kazan again next CL season. :P
