I’ve just finished watching the presentation from Zurich and – without the benefit of seeing those that preceded it – it was fantastic. Of course, I’m somewhat biased about thisÂ (I live inÂ one of Â potential host cities), but even taking that into account I don’t see how everyone involved in the bid team could have done anything any better.
Now the waiting starts: if anything happens before 3:00pm GMT, I’ll update this post but it’s important to remember that what happens now is no longer in our hands…and having made my position on FIFA absolutely clear earlier in the week, it still wouldn’t come as much of a surprise if we didn’t win.
Update: Russia won the vote. Can’t be bothered to react to thatÂ immediately, but I’m sureÂ I’llÂ have something to say about it tomorrow.
