Ok there's a serious "allegations of corruption in FIFA, and today there was a chance to rid Blatter and try to clean up FIFA, but the only person to stand against Blatter backed down in the 2nd vote???? He could have won it Blatter didn't get the 105 votes he needed in the 1st count to see off his rival, but for reasons only known to this Prince he backed down in the 2nd vote????


He got 133 votes in the first round. As there were only 2 candidates, I doubt (m)any would change their vote between the first and second round, so Blatter would have got the 105 needed :thinking:

Although Prince Ali would have gained a few more votes it would not have been enough to win on a majority, the significance in the vote was that it was closer than Blatter thought, but with Yoofa threatening some sort of action, it may well not be over yet, as I think with Yoofa would go the money men.

The Qatar successful bid is going to ruin football here in Europe

Yoofa's meeting which I think starts next Friday will be very interesting to observe. Pratini has been talking big about boycotting Thiefa tournaments but will he follow through?

Very much doubt it Rising, there's too many of the smaller member states from UEFA that rely heavily on the revenue that they garner from participating in FIFA competitions ( qualifiers included ).

I think Platini is just point scoring.

The only way I can see FIFA being reformed is if the broadcasters stopped paying them such ridiculous fees to show their matches and the only way that will happen is if consumers stop watching.

What is needed in my opinion is a fan boycott of the Russian World Cup both in terms of fans travelling and more importantly fans not tuning in to watch. This may make broadcasters think twice about what they pay for the rights to the Qatar World Cup.

It will kill me but I won't be watching any of the Russia World Cup even if Ireland qualify.

I'm very much "club before country", BD. it wouldn't take much for me not to bother with the damn thing. England are shite anyway and can be embarrassing to watch, like the last time.

Laudable sentiments mate, but unless it was an orchestrated boycott, it wouldn't make a blind bit of difference. I'm hoping the arrests severely impact sponsorship forcing them to change tack. At the moment Blatter just ignores everything that any decent person would have resigned over long ago :no:

I was reading t'other day that sponsorship only makes up 30% of their revenue, that's why I think it's the broadcasters that have to be got, if they go the sponsors will naturally follow anyway.

Absolutely, this is the result I wanted to see, couldn't care less about a load of corrupt no marks getting arrested but with this c**t gone there is real hope for reform within FIFA now, no guarantees mind you but at least we have hope.
