It’s a FIX!

England didn’t get the ‘honour’ of hosting the 2018 football Word Cup – Russia will be hosting instead and it’s caused a massive stink in the press. Apparently, it’s a fix because we ‘had the best bid’ and even had David Beckham, David Cameron and Prince William smooshing the room before vote (!), not only that but people are highlighting Russia’s human rights record.

Personally, I don’t see the problem: racism, homophobia, hooliganism and corruption = football and much as I like Russia, they have a history of all four. All this press about football is getting quite boring, headlines in the sports section are usually:

ENGLAND TO HOST WORLD CUP!
England doing alright in cricket.

ENGLAND FAIL TO GET WORLD CUP: IT’S A FIX!
England doing alright in cricket.

WE DEMAND FOOTBALL GOVERNING BODY REFORM!
England doing alright in cricket.

The headlines should be:

ENGLAND POISED TO RETAIN THE ASHES AND BEAT THE AUSSIES AT HOME (in the Ashes) FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ALMOST 20YRS!
Football fans unhappy. Again.
