Is it possible to completely trust any of those candidates? Or, perhaps even more pertinently, is it possible to have any trust in the delegates who will be voting in this election. It appears from the outside that the whole organisation has been corrupt for so long and that the delegates have previously voted and then re-voted for Blatter as their president simply because he was making them very rich and they were all aboard the "gravy train" and extremely happy to be so. And now we are asked to believe that they are suddenly going to vote for the best, most honest and virtuous candidate to take the organisation forward and not just continue to vote for the man who promises to look after them and their interests. Well, my trust levels are pretty low... NONE OF THE ABOVE!

Only really just read up on this a bit, Salman saying he'd hold up the reform process, given his questionable history as well and everything from his area being about money does anyone actually think things would be any different under him?

40 team World Cup then. GREAT.
If that gives teams like Wales, Northern ireland and Rep of Ireland the chance to qualify than its a great move. Ok teams like Hungary and Iceland are not so great but at the end of day it means more football matches to watch which can only be a good thing?
