    FIFA arrests

    Post  alfiehammer on Wed 27 May 2015, 9:49 pm

    Blimey what a day. Maybe the worst kept secret in football, not even surprised by the amounts, lengths of time it's gone on or how many involved. 

    I think all the major federations to pull out of Fifa and either create a new Fifa or just work together on international events like the World Cup. 


    I hope they get batter soon.

    England should lead the way ! they wanted out of Fifa some time ago. Gary Lineker seems to be a leader here!

    Getting Splatter is going to be difficult, there will be layers and layers of stinking corruption to wade through before they can get to him, it's a bit like trying to get at the US Mafia dons. Anyway, at least the Yanks have made a start, thank fupp.
    The best bet is that the big sponsors will get together, start calling the tune and force change - that would be the quickest route.

    The Russians are not happy, I can't imagine why. And I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of cement mixers have been turned off in Qatar this morning.

    Politics. Wouldn't surprise me if these leaks come from within FIFA HQ as diverting attraction to get through the nominations/vote stage then suddenly it'll disappear and be okay.

    Offering up sacrificial lambs by implicating them in scandal. FIFA does it's bit, says t2hey'll tighten up and the press and public will soon forget and move on to other things. Age old tactic.

    After todays speech by Blatter I am not sure if he is a Genius, mad as a box of frogs or as evil as a James Bond 007 bad guy.

    On this occasion I'm not sure I agree with u mate, I think too much money, too much media coverage for this to disappear into the shadows. I think blatter and FIFA will fall and a new, non corrupt Fifa lead by someone like figo will emerge.

    Any organisation with a monopoly and power will be corrupt, nature of the beast unfortunately. Great power is obtained by having an adversion to honesty and a love of wonga.

    Same across every high powered industry.

    UK Serious Fraud Office says it is actively assessing "material in its possession" relating to Fifa corruption allegations
