I honestly believe 2022 won't take place in Qatar. I reckon in the next couple of years FIFA will realise their mistake and ask us to step in and take over, England is one of a handful of countries that could host a tournament with little notice as we already have the infrastructure, plenty of good/big enough grounds and training facilities.

Hey Tim you had me for a minute there. I thought 'I didn't say all that' until I realised you cocked up a bit on the quote thing. I think I get your drift though.

If England do not qualify, Burnley will win the Premier League as all the other clubs will lose their foreign players to the World Cup :D

What even in Nov-Dec?

Italia 90 was great for the romantics.

Surprisingly there are reports of skullduggery concerning the decision to award the 2022 World Cup to that impoverished but historic football-loving country. Shoct and stunt. Former CIA agents allegedly involved. Possibly Mossad personnel too, blue lab.

It’s stupid to keep it in Qatar. There’s plenty of time to rearrange to another venue.
