    all about legacy, and who stands the most to gain from being given the rights to host ... that's what I talked about when explaining my hunches ...

    acknowledging that, no real surprise about the decisions for me ...

    Well the FIFA obviously chose for the money. Russia was to be expected and I think they deserve seeing the fact that they were the only 2018 bid that hadn't hosted a major football tournament before. But, err, Qatar? Not too sure about that. Exporting airconditioned stadiums to Africa, what's that all about?

    Anyway, it's funny how the national television here kept acting like we made a good chance and seemed genuinely disappointed when it was announced that Russia got it.

    Hope fans enjoy the 'no alcohol' policy in Qatar. I'm sure they'll love not being able to enjoy a cool beer in 40 degree tempretures...

    Königsberg is +2, the other stadiums will be in +3.

    Qatar World Cup will be like the worst ever.

    How many venues do you suppose will have to be built in Qatar?

    I know absolutely nothing about the state of football in their country. How many FIFA-approved venues do they have presently?

    Knowing FIFA, there's no chance Qatar will change it's rules regarding beer for WC 2022, unless they want to. FIFA didnt prohibit vuvuzelas saying it was a traditional thing. Well, anti-drinking policies in Qatar too...

    I dont know, but I think 80% of them will be built, considering their ambitious projects. We're talking about 3 billion dollars of investment in new stadia, so I suppose most of them are being built for the WC.

    And to tell you the truth, taking a look at their projects, the stadiums are going to be astonishing. Can't say the same about the rest, we'll have to wait and see.
