Neither FIFA nor the FA know what they are doing

Football has descended into farce.

First the FA's bid to win the rights to the 2018 World Cup was a shambles though the bid document itself was sound. Over the past 25 years, maybe as far back as Sir Stanley Rous's days as President of FIFA, the FA has known FA about soccer politics. It had learned nothing from its last bid in 1999 (for 2006) which went to Germany.

Successive Governments and Select Committees have called on the FA to reform. The FA has turned a deaf ear for over a decade.

Then, it goes to FIFA, already heavily discredited, to try and persuade this corrupt organisation to reform itself in front of the world's media: turkeys and Christmas come to mind. 

FIFA will slowly be reformed by its aged men well past retirement. What is now needed from the FA if it has any credibility left is to publish a Charter for Reform and to obtain signatures from sponsors, the leading world clubs and past and present players.

Campaign, campaign, campaign for reform and put a time-line on so if FIFA doesn't reform start an alternative world cup.
