qatar bids seems ludicrous

fuck all of you, give it to whoever of england and russia doesn't get it in '18

Qatar doesn't stand a chance. Jap/SK "just" hosted one. Australians cares less about soccer than Americans, right?

USA USA USA

BIG MUFFIN (gbx), Monday, 29 November 2010 19:38 (eleven years ago) link

wouldn't Qatar have to build hella stadiums? and then wouldn't they just lie fallow from that point on, forever? giving them a WC only encourages that sort of reckless expenditure

BIG MUFFIN (gbx), Monday, 29 November 2010 19:41 (eleven years ago) link

the story I heard is their stadiums would be designed to be taken apart and given to less-fortunate areas in need of playing space

fuck that, USAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

fwiw: lol iirc sb'd u tbqh (dan m), Monday, 29 November 2010 19:43 (eleven years ago) link

USA "just" had one as well. Would go Australia for minimal sleep for a month. I bet Qatar would have awesome stadia.

ailsa, Monday, 29 November 2010 19:45 (eleven years ago) link

Australia, though Qatar makes a surprisingly persuasive case in the ads - Zidane pleading for the youth of the middle east to be given its chance, which is obviously how it'd work out irl

Ismael Klata, Monday, 29 November 2010 19:48 (eleven years ago) link

i read through jack warner's wiki last night. if any nefarious scumbag can get the world cup for his federation, it's him

con suelo, Monday, 29 November 2010 19:54 (eleven years ago) link

well the US hosted sixteen years ago, vs SK/JPN hostin in 2002. I suppose by 2022 that eight year diff will seem less pronounced.

mostly I want it here so I can go to games. duh.

BIG MUFFIN (gbx), Monday, 29 November 2010 19:54 (eleven years ago) link

Quatar are proposing to put all the stadia in one place, which sounds insane.

All of this sounds insane apart from maybe Australia. And they won't be interested in cricket for much longer the way the Ashes are going.

Wtf?! Paddy Power are the only bookies running this and they suddenly have Qatar as red hot favourites - last time I looked about a week ago, USA were top, Aus second, Qatar about 8/1 and Japan & Korea nowhere, but now it's:

Qatar - 4/7
Australia - 2/1
USA - 6/1
Japan - 40/1
Good Korea - 40/1

Ismael Klata, Tuesday, 30 November 2010 20:41 (eleven years ago) link

I mean, they'll be playing matches in the evening - the temperature will go down to a cool 40C!

Qatar's odds've shortened again, slightly:

Qatar - 4/6
USA - 7/4
Australia - 9/2
Japan - 40/1
Good Korea - 50/1

Huge swings in US/Aus odds overnight - my conclusion is that no-one gives a toss about 2022, and Qatar's position is entirely down to the arab a hoy hoy getting all nationalistic with his 50 dirhams.

Ismael Klata, Wednesday, 1 December 2010 11:23 (eleven years ago) link

is that a ref to my betting thread because otherwise i dont get it

purblind snowcock splattered (a hoy hoy), Wednesday, 1 December 2010 11:27 (eleven years ago) link

Indeed it is - could be cash to be made with these fluctuations because surely this one's going nowhere other than America or Australia.

Ismael Klata, Wednesday, 1 December 2010 11:31 (eleven years ago) link

What time will games be played in Qatar in connect w/ European times? If it is at a time better than Aus can provide, they are sorted.

purblind snowcock splattered (a hoy hoy), Wednesday, 1 December 2010 11:33 (eleven years ago) link

Qatar is only one hour different from South Africa so timing for Europe shouldn't be a problem.

Group G is wild.

Norway failed to beat Latvia at home, so sit in third place on 18 points, behind Turkey on goal difference.

Netherlands were cruising to automatic qualification but have just conceded two goals in four minutes vs Montenegro, so they’re on 20 if it ends like this.

Norway play Netherlands in the last game. If they win, and Turkey beat Montenegro, Netherlands would be out.

Scampo di tutti i Scampi (ShariVari), Saturday, 13 November 2021 21:34 (eight months ago) link

Mitrovic has just scored, knocking Portugal down to the qualifiers unless they can equalise in the next two minutes.

No easy games in international football.

Elsewhere, I'm faced with the possibility that Scotland might actually be quite good. However. Even though Adams scored (again) I still think we need a centre forward. We don't have really have any centre backs either but Clarke's main selling point is his skill at organizing defences.

just thinking about all of this. it sounds corny to say, but canada qualifying was the best thing that could happen to this country. you can tell the vibe is changing. the team has achieved its main goal. even if we get eliminated in the group stage, this is already a big win for soccer in canada. anything else is just gravy

When I was up in Scotland I saw (ex-Ranger) Chris Burke talking about the World Cup and saying maybe Scotland should just do the decent thing and withdraw and allow Ukraine to go through, which brought the instantaneous response of "Get tae fuck!" in households the length and breadth of the country.
