    Shame I'm working tomorrow, fancied getting caught up in all the Sky Sports hype.

    We'll know by this time tomorrow.

    Russia must have sent out loads of money bags but for some reason I feel FIFA will go for a safer option like England or Spain/Portugal if they haven't imploded.

    Our press see Russia as favourites, while Spain/Portugal see us as the favourites to get it.

    Russia's chances may be harmed now that it's confirmed Putin won't be in Zurich tomorrow.

    Even though I feel we won't get it, I'll still be mightily pissed off if FIFA give it to someone else.

    Having watched the presentations, if England don't get it, I hope its Russia. Spain/Portugal's bid bored the tits off me.

    I hope England dont get it because FIFA got sick of hearing that Elbow song in all the videos.

    I thought this was about the WC and not his sex life?

    Hmmm. I could wait for this, but I'm allowed to go home at 3pm. This going to be like waiting for your girlfriend to get ready to go out, isn't it?

    I've gone from apathy to excitement in the last ten minutes for some reason.

    I bet if we win there'll be a drop in people getting the tube tomorrow.*

    *Just thought I'd get there before Sickipedia does.

    Me too! I'm nervous now where as about 15 minutes ago I just ignored it.

    I think that's the most positive I've ever heard Blatter talk about England.

    Good to see Niall Quinn reinforce some nice northern stereotypes there.

    SSN have Quatar winning as breaking news, despite there not being an annoucement yet.

    Would be quite cool if it was there. All those new stadiums would be awesome.
  • Deleted user 2 December 2010 15:12:53
    Oh wait, that's 2022

    Er...eh?

    I think it would be a horrible World Cup to attend with the ridiculous heat, lack of things to do, alcohol issues, etc.

    Can you not drink in private hotels and bars? I've not been to Quatar but I've spent a fair bit of time in Dubai and it's actually fine in that respect.
