    It was probably just a note to say 'that wasnt enough - you need to increase the bribe to stand a chance.'

    Is it really 2pm for the announcement?

    Who would be footing the bill for this "Football United" thing?

    Just seen the England presentation....... Beckham has an affliction in his right arm?

    Russia next.......... "You will give us competition or ve will cancel world gaz"

    Wow..... Arsehavin is risking his biscuit! I can imagine a bit of abuse if they win the bid.......... but shouldn't he be explaining why he plays football in England?

    Sold to the Russian beach girls!

    At least they are showing their own country, 80% of the England presentation was Thailand and Africa.

    Is that Gazza that's just turned up at the back with his fishing rod and some chicken?

    I am looking forward to the 3:05pm 'it's a fix, we need to change the system' statements.

    I did hear one report the other day saying if we do not get it the FA will more than likely go bust as they are relying on the world cup bailing them out.

    Loving the arrogance of the 'we love football more than anyone else' 'we already have everything in place' quotes from so called knowledgeable people.
