    I would have thought if the international community , FIFA or the IOC had any misgivings about Russia holding sporting events they would have mentioned it long before now given the recent goings on in Georgia ,Ukraine and Syria . Their minor and yet unproven infraction in England is pretty much small fry in comparison .

    But we cant have people being murdered on our streets or this nerve gas stuff being dispersed as acts of a foreign state and if that is the case I'm afraid we stay at home . Don't expect anyone to join us though .

    You aren't in it anyway, you're Welsh.

    England are in a group on our own this time. We're in FIFA, but we're not. We get to negotiate free kicks with all the other teams on individual terms now too. We play ourselves three times, and the winner goes through, second place goes to a play off.....you know what I bet we could still feck that up and go home after the first round too.

    Stephen Kinnock seems as savvy about how the real world operates as his old man. What seems just and logical is millions of miles away from what actually happens. Look at the number of thugs, terrorists and killers let out of prison to facilitate the peace process in Ireland. Unless something more develops, it’ll be all smiles and hand shakes in Russia — after all, who’s left in Fifa to give the (ahem) deposit back...?
