Football 2018 World Cup, do we need it?

With the media exposure of at least 3 corrupt FIFA officials, prepared to take countless thousands in bribes, do we really need the charade of the world Cup to come here?
FIFA have not even sacked the 3 officials concerned, merely suspended them for the time being....presumably so they can resume their positions once the "fuss has died down".
Most sickening spectacle of the week?....David Cameron flying out to try and persuade FIFA to bring their discredited show here, almost apologising for any upset caused by the Sunday Times's revelations.

I can't believe the FIFA official who sold thousands of tickets direct to ticket touts is still in the same job and still trying to do the same thing.

All I can say is that FIFA have the best officials money can buy.

Well done to the BBC and Sunday Times for exposing the corruption inside FIFA.

A severe case of cronyism, jobs for the boys, funny handshake bridgade whatever way you look at it.

No, the only people who profit from the World Cup are FIFA ( in more ways than one) with the host Country's tax payer picking up the bill.

We don't need it but it would be nice to have it. It would be great to go and watch Wales play if they qualify........
