Although I have to admit with all the corruption at FIFA and people like Sepp Blatter, I just don't care any more.

I am only really interested in the team I support in the English Premership, which is sad because I used to really look forward to the World Cup and Internationals.
I feel this way too, I really don't care too much for the World cup anymore - I MUCH prefer the Premiership. There was a time when the English would hang flags in support of the team at world cup time but I didnt see any during the last world cup and I am not expecting any this time either. I am sick of FIFA's cronies and a winter world cup in Qatar will just about finish it as far as I am concerned!

I just hope the Qatar World Cup doesn't end up disrupting the premiership, otherwise I am not interested.

England aren't going to win anything playing in the Amazonian Heat in Brazil or in the desert region of Qatar which is not conducive to playing football. I also don't want it moved to the winter and for the World Cup to disrupt s far more interesting and important domestic leagues.

The World Cup having descended in to a corrupt joke years ago. The only thing consistent about the World Cup being the disgusting levels of corruption amongst FIFA Officials and the appalling refereeing decisions, which begs the question are the referees and linesmen just as corrupt as FIFA itself.

The whole thing is now so corrupt it's like the Eurovision Song Contest of Football, and I for one wouldn't shed any tears if it was just scrapped.
