    50 degrees in the summer....thats insane.


    From hat I heard the stadiums would be domes with A/C fully powered by clean energy and once the tournament is done, each stadium will be able to be taken down and donated to african countries.

    So it's basically the same as the UAE, but without the giant sails and death stars?

    Good post, Marla. FIFA's decisions only have a moral dimension when it profits them to do so.

    I tried to install FIFA 2011 on my computer. Didn't work. It said the file was corrupt.

    To be fair to holy king, I didn't get it right away either. Which kinda shows that I've been drinking, and had just been thinking about buying FIFA cos PES 2011 is winding me up so badly, but my first reaction was "why are you telling us this ?" D'oh...

    At least someone got it.

    On that note, the AFC Asian Cup will be held January next year in Qatar. Will be interesting to see how they do.

    Also, anyone want to guess how long Benitez has left at Inter?

    I thought it was obvious right away that it was a joke.

    took me a while to figure out why inter milan could possibly have played a club called mazembe...

    why do they even bother with this competition ? the european clubs should simply give it the finger...
