Surely I'm not the only person to breathe a sigh of relief at the UK not winning the World Cup bid? If only we could hand back the Olympics too.
Thank God for corruption

I'm with you Chiggers, Olympics too. I can't help feeling a little sorry for all those who wanted it so much but it's only a daft game.
But how things have changed. A few short years ago, one of my complaints about the Olympics was the cost. £9bn or whatever seemed an awful lot of money. But after the credit crisis thing,£9bn seems like loose change. So, apart from the inevitable tiresome media barrage, my only beef with the Olympics now is "what's the bloody point?" But then again, I used to have a flat mate who would avidly watch a 10,000 metres race. There's nowt so queer as folks.
Football. It's not a matter of life and death. No, it's much more important than that.
Oh, I'm such a wag.
I only watch the ladies teams. Not for the game you understand, just to see them change shirts at the end.
I kill myself.
I think the media believe we were all sitting their with fingers-crossed. Most people were just watching so they could create one-liners for forums, twatter and faecebook.
On a footballing note, the World Cup is obviously the one you want to win but the European Championship is a much better competition. There's less 'dead' games, it's shorter and most teams in it could win it and it's played in Europe. The climate dictates who wins the World cup - Europe or cool - it's a European victory - Americas or boiling - it's a South American victory. And yes I do know the odd exception. Everyone knew Europe would win in South Africa because it was going to be hot or humid. Next one is Brazil so it'll be a South American win.

Don't be too hasty. When Fifa get wind of this, the venue will be changed to Bahrain...
I bet we get the pitch at Chernobyl to train on...bastards
matches at night with no need for floodlights
Let's make it women only, topless, on a beach, with a giant inflatable banana and call it muffball.
That's very sexist of you IABP. And you couldn't really call it muffball if they were only topless.
Very true. It's not fair on the guys. They can referee. You can't really have female refs. It wouldn't be right.
