The World Cup: Expanded edition.

  1. Platini thinks there should be more teams (40 rather than 32) in the world cup. What do you think of this idea?

    I think it's an ok idea but I would want some of the meaningless friendlies cut from the calendar as compensation. I also would rather the world cup was just a straight knock-out competition rather than starting with groups but I know that will probably never happen.

  2. Why would you want the world cup to be one match elimination matches?
  3. More excitement, a minnow nation could get lucky and go through against one of the bigger nations, whereas in a group they will more than likely get found out and the usual suspects go through. Gust getting through the first round could then be the catalyst for them to go on a good run.
  4. Platini and Blatter are absolute jokes to world football. They both have no idea of how the modern game works and are absolutely ruining football.


    The fact he wants to increase a term from 4 years to 8 years and is also hinting he wants to continue in 2015 when he's previously said this term is his last? Fuck him. If it went to 8 years and he continued, he'd be 87 by the time his term ends. He hasn't got a clue now, god knows what he'll be like in 10 years.
  5. Blatter is a Joke, I consider Platini to be the lesser of two evils.

    I read this column in The Observer on Sundays, , there is normally a FIFA or Blatter related part about corruption every week. This week:
