Response to the world cup
Any association which spends £800,000,000 on an average 'national' stadium with a poxy arch in one of the least accessible areas of a city tucked away in one corner of the country, whilst allowing the grass roots of the game to wither and die, does not deserve the WC.
I've said it before and I'll say it again, we don't need a national stadium, in the same way as Brazil, Spain, Portugal, Argentina, Italy etc don't need one. Had we invested £800,000,000 in academies, development and rennovating existing stadia then I would support the bid. As it is we have pissed our budget up the wall and thrown away our chance to develop a decent development program.
