  1. Pretty sure FIFA doesn't pay any tax on ticket sales or anything else they can make money from. The prestige of hosting the event and having 'x' thousands using the hotels, bars and restaurants in any given City is supposed to make up for it.
  2. More to it than just a nice/big stadium I would imagine. International access via air travel, road access, accommodation availability and all that jazz. Bristol has little to no chance of out competing south Wales and our best chance of taking advantage of any UK world cup would be by being a fans hub, selling loads of rooms in the hotels at the sporting quarter and then getting loads of South Americans spannered on Thatchers in the car park whilst they watch games on a big screen.
  3. Hopefully we get both of the Korea's, the Fewers can give Kim a glimpse of his impoverished home land up the Mem, and we can provide the South with modern facilities. We can make the Bearpit roundabout a demilitarised zone.
  4. We'd probably get the nod as a host city in the event of hosting the egg chasing world cup again. Stadium and training facilities would both be first class.
  5. Just as they were last time....
  6. This. Saint and Greavsie was must-see telly, it was usually the first opportunity to see goals on a weekend as back then, Tranmere played most of their home games on a Friday night, so they would show them.
  7. Do you mean the grotto at the Mem?
  8. You are correct. Why spunk money away on a process that is all about brown envelopes. As for 2012, I was massively cynical about the entire Olympics thing, the moment we won the bid I was pretty much resigned to the fact it would cost double when they said it would and the legacies would be close to zero. Then the games started and I was drawn in to it like no previous Olympics, and probably enjoyed the Paras as much, if not more. I'd love it if we did have a UK world cup, but I just feel as if we should be invited to host it.
  9. Apparently we (the UK) might be wasting money bidding for the right to host the 2030 World Cup. I can think of better things to do with the cash.
  10. Whilst it is widely accepted that the French find it easier to translate English to French when it is spoken in a French accent, it won't stop me from posting the following pic.
  11. I think most people got in to the habit of buying late when the selections tombola was broken!
  12. I'm very surprised they are publicly saying they love Everton too. Given there can't be a Liverpool fan in the world who doesn't have the fewers as their second team, this could be awkward.
  13. Reality is, streaming the game on Saturday was problematic for a much higher group of people than usual. Would like to think the club/SLO will be aware of this and will take up the issue, rather than people trying to get answers from the media company as well as contacting the club for advice. It would just be far more efficient.
  14. Could be. Didn't he score the winner today for Plymouth?
  15. Probably shows just how difficult it is to make it in the pro-game, to get that (alright, it's academy kids on Soccer AM) far, the youth must have been exceptional schools players, but the fact we haven't spotted anyone other than Bobby tells a story. So kids. Stay in school, eat your vegetables and work hard!
  16. Great. I've now got the hokey-cokey in my head.
  17. Radio Bristol is about 5 minutes behind Sky Sports news. This is weird.
  18. Like the company who hosts it.
  19. Error establishing a database connection
