Quantcast

Time to call Fifa to account

819

The Fifa Executive Committee meet in Zurich today and tomorrow but it is unclear if the allegations of corruption concerning the decision to award the 2022 World Cup to Qatar will be on the agenda.  The world body are no strangers to allegations of corruption, it seems to be an internal part of the fabric of the game at the top level, they are also extremely experienced at stonewalling such allegations.

The International Trades Union Congress, who are calling for the 2022 vote to be re-run, have called for fans attending games this weekend to turn their back on the field at the 22nd minute, to build awareness of what is going on with Fifa and the Qatari preparations.

When you get corruption at the top of an organisation it tends to undermine process all the way down.  A clean and alert Fifa would give us a far better game.  It’s time we were all asking questions about this.

Congratulations to Mrs Jobo Balde, who won at £50 voucher to spend at Cail Bruich, 725 Great Western Road.  Jobo, drop me and email……….

Seville, The Celtic Movement, is selling like the proverbial……

“I decided to go to the train station only to be told that there were no more trains to Malaga that night and so I was now truly stranded. By chance I met an old man who asked me if I knew where the train station was. “It’s no good mate they are all off—all the trains have gone!”

“The old man laughed and explained that he wasn’t looking to get a train, but just needed to find the station as that is where he had parked his car while he and his wife went to the game.

“We spoke for a few minutes about what had happened to me and then he said if I could get him to the station he would drive me to Malaga as they were staying twenty minutes outside Malaga for the rest of the week!

“I was delighted and accepted the lift and we got to the airport just as the last call went out for my flight. I rushed on board and guess who was there? None other than my mate Jim. I owe that old man and his wife so much for their help.”

    Also there’s a pile of kids coming through from the local primary school here.

     

     

    Would be great for them to witness it.

  2. Geordie Munro ,

  5. Any Xbox One gamers on here? I got sick of checking loads of different sites for news, so I’ve knocked up one that aggregates Official, IGN, and N4G headlines in one place.

     

     

    Xbox One News

     

     

    I’ve also scooped up all the games and accessories from Amazon into one easy to use page Spam

  6. The FIFA members will drive up in their big cars, stay in their luxury hotels and pick up their “gifts” and “expenses” on the way home.

     

     

    And in between release a statement saying that there is no corruption.

  7. Kilbowie Kelt will vote YES on

    Karma, My ass.

     

     

    O, NO,NO, NO, NO, … Geordie Munro.

    Sadly……….Nail on the head there mate.

     

     

    What chance of sorting out a world body when we canny even sort out a committee, run by a conflicted Hun in Glasgow?

  11. I should my xbox one news site hasn’t been tested on IE yet, so apologies if it looks a bit rubbish on there. (I mean even more rubbish than it looks on other browsers)

  12. Just happened to be looking at what sports are popular in Mongolia when I came across this:-

     

     

    “Another very popular activity called Shagaa is the “flicking” of sheep ankle bones at a target several feet away, using a flicking motion of the finger to send the small bone flying at targets and trying to knock the target bones off the platform. At Naadam, this contest is very popular and develops a serious audience among older Mongolians.”

     

     

     

    Wonder if Aberdeenshire will send a team to Naadam next year?

    We defo have our own problems at home and the corruption is alive and kicking at the sfa.

     

     

    Shameless corruption with the head being most conflicted.
