  1. Sad to say, but it’s likely Russia, as much as I’ll be pulling for England. Maybe of greater hope to fans here in the US is the fate of the 2022 cup location. Is the Cup coming back to the States or headed to Qatar or Australia? Fingers crossed…. In the end, I think the England – US back-to-back double is too much to ask for, as great as it would be….

      I agree. If England gets 2018 then I think both the U.S. and Oz are dead in the water for ’22. If ’18 goes to other than England then I think ’22 is wide open.

      However, reading tea leaves is probably more reliable than trying to work your way through FIFA’s group-think/bribe process.

    As much as i would not like, i do believe it will be portugal-spain.
    In terms of cost benefit it is the most rational choice… but in football, rationalism is usually the less common practice, unfortunately.

  3. England’s chance was slim….then the BBC did the documentary!

  4. madschester United says:

    I thought BBC made it very clear who wins this. The one who bribes the most judges with the most money… very simple: Russia.

  5. sucka99 says:

    Gazprom 2018 will get it!
