Gardian Posted November 29, 2010 Share Posted November 29, 2010 I hope that I'm wrong, but England will fail in it's bid for the 2018 world Cup. Whether the Sunday Times reporting or the Panorama programme turn out to be factors, we'll probably never know.Whatever, something that most would probably agree with is that the existing process is flawed. There have been question marks over, how can I put it, 'voting irregularities' for years. I have to say that it's beyond me how one of the suspended FIFA representatives can be from (was it?) Tahiti. Hardly the core of worldwide football.FIFA should reform it as follows: voting should be from the nations represented in the previous World Cup. Votes should allocated on a 'out of the hat' basis to (say) 20 league clubs in each of those nations. Dossiers of the competing bids should be provided to those voters so that they could vote objectively. No voting allowed for competing countries.No need for 'familiarisation junkets', no opportunity for bribery. Selection made by true football supporters on an objective basis. Easy.
