    Don't think there will be any meaningful competition for this bid. I think there is a high chance I will be going.

    Mexico AND the USA? Would like to see a Messi or Beckham type try and get the ball over THAT wall.

    Mexico who have had it twice since we last had it and America who had it in the 90's nothing like sharing it about.

    If we had it it would be fantastic for the economy. However it'd also end up being a boring summer. Removes a lot of the fun by having it on the door step.

    It's all about money and more money is made from holding it in the USA than anywhere else.
    The other countries are just included for political reasons.
    I probably won't be alive then so I don't really care.

    The USA men have qualified for the last half-dozen World Cups. The USA women just won the last World Cup (their third win).

    Ive often thought a joint bid between, Republic/North of Ireland and Scotland and wales would work for either a World Cup or Euros


    Christ it would still be less travel then russia
    And they'd have the stadiums in place

    I thought they played a lot better than England did in the last tournament Houch. I enjoyed watching them play which I never thought possible.

    I think they went for the Euros a few years ago. Problem is it involves crossing a body of water which both FIFA and UEFA have both frowned upon.

    Australia got mugged out of the 2022 bid by Qatar and if they really are looking to take it to a new country with emerging football potential surely that is it? Grounds all ready to go, obvious potential and in a prosperous nation to boot.

    They were as mugged off as we were for 2018. Both decisions should've been reversed the moment it was obvious how they were made. As much as I like foreign tourneys I was genuinely angry when the announcements were made. It stank of corruption from the start.

    The only two bids to have red flags raised by the inspection teams were the ones to get awarded tournaments. The only reservation about England was a lack of high speed rail I seem to recall, pales in comparison to what they said about Russia and Qatar.

    I don't think a 45 yr old singer will be top box office.

    A road trip round the US following England would be really cool.

    I'd be all over it if it happened.
