 FIFA - Same old, same old
Topic Originator: GG Riva  
Date:   Thu 25 Oct 14:36

Discredited former FIFA president, Sepp Blatter, was notorious for coming up with lots of crackpot ideas, which he was convinced would improve the game for fans e.g. make the goals bigger to increase the average number of goals scored per game. (He abandoned that idea when he was advised about the costs involved.)

His successor, Gianni Infantino, appears to be another cheek of the same err.... bum. He and his FIFA Executive Committee, have hatched a number of plans to squeeze even more football into the calendar, which if implemented, will make the rich even richer................

See what you think.

Heard of this yesterday, more tamperferance from the Big Wigs(as they see themselves) of world football, but to what end? Good news appears to be UEFA's reluctance to green light the scheme. As you say, the rich getting richer perhaps.

I'm not convinced this is the best idea in the world and I'm a fan of the Confederation Cup too especially as it allows a World Cup host some practice before the main event so I hope it doesn't happen. However the brass neck of UEFA complaining about it takes hypocracy to a whole new level.

The only thing I’d like to see from them is to get rid of the legalised match rigging in the seeding system. The smaller teams ie Scotland are always gonna struggle to get to finals while this joke of a system is in use.
