FIFA, FA and the World Cup - is anyone that surprised?

You are here: Home / Blog / Sport / FIFA, FA and the World Cup - is anyone that surprised?
FIFA has its headquarters in Zurich to hide behind the Canton walls; it sues English writers such as David Yallop (They Stole the Game) and Andrew Jennings (Foul) inside this wall and sometimes outside but NEVER in the UK.

FIFA simply stinks and it was a great mistake of the FA to bid for the World Cup given how badly it did in 1998 (6 votes).

The FA itself lives in cloud cuckoo land and needs a top to toe clear out but like turkeys voting for Christmas this is never ever going to happen. As a consequence the FA's standing in the world will be further diminished but as it cannot get much lower why bother to reform it (they will say). This means the Premier League will outgrow (it probably has anyway) its lesser cousin.

Until the FA is as good as the RFU or the ECB (look at how they have changed) or more importantly as good as Rowing and Sailing which wins world events year after year after year it is best to accept that the FA will always be second best. They probably prefer it that way
