Media Musings Blog Archive Why Australia deserves to host the World Cup One of those bids came from Australia submitted by Football Federation Australia chairman, Frank Lowy.
It was a symbolic moment for football in this country and shows how far we have come in such a short space of time. It's time for FIFA to recognise Australia's enormous potential and give us the rights to host either the 2018 or 2022 World Cup. Melbourne Cricket Ground, the home of sports deserves to host the World Cup (Rick212) Our rivals to host the world's biggest sports event are Japan, South Korea, Qatar, United States, Russia, Spain Portugal and Netherlands Belgium. All of these bids have their own merits and faults. But it is England's bid that poses the biggest threat. England was the clear favourite until last week. Then they pressed the self destruct button as usual. The head of louis vuitton careers atlanta the 2018 bid, Lord Triesman was forced to resign after allegations made on tape that Spain were getting Russia to bribe the referees at this years' World Cup. This comes two months after the Football Association chief; Ian Watmore resigned, leaving their bid in tatters. It seems the English media are getting a bit restless about their chances. "The bid is not doomed after this latest blow but, so far, England has succeeded only in convincing the rest of the world that we are home not to football but to cock ups and conspiracies", wrote a Times columnist. Even Australian media is becoming more optimistic about our chances. England's ambassador, David Beckham was admirable (as usual) in his speech after giving Blatter England's bid book. But does England really have the best fans? How can anyone definitively state that? How do we know there won't be the threat of hooliganism? Why is it that in English (and European) football, both sets of supporters have to be segregated? Sorry Becks. I'm not buying it. I'm not buying the claims that England is the 'home' of football either. Football is truly a world game and if FIFA wants to spread the sport to all parts of the globe, then Australia is the answer. Our facilities are world class. The bid has promised 2.8 billion to be spent on new stadiums and upgrades. Look no further than the Sydney 2000 Olympics for how to host a showpiece sports event. On December 2nd, the 24 man FIFA executive committee will announce the 2018 and 2022 World Cup hosts. I hope they make the sensible choice. Und trotzdem, die M?dchen lassen sie nicht. And now with respect to the old man who knew Chinese, but could not tell what was o'clock. This sac vanessa bruno individual was a man whose natural powers would wedding dresses have been louis vuitton shoes size 8 mont blanc pens utterly buried and lost beneath a mountain of sloth and hollister laziness had not God determined otherwise. He had in his early years chalked out for himself a plan of life in which he had chanel handbags his own ease and self indulgence solely wedding dress in view; he had no particular bad passions to gratify, he converse pas cher only wished to lead an easy quiet life, just as if the business of this mighty world could be carried lancel on by innocent people fond of tiffany and co jewelry ease and quiet, or that Providence would permit innocent quiet drones to occupy any portion of the earth michael kors outlet online sale and to burberry outlet online cumber it. north face God had, at any rate, decreed that this man should not cumber it as a drone. He brings a pandora uk certain affliction upon him, the agony of which produces that terrible whirling of the brain michael kors outlet online which, michael kors canada unless it prada outlet is stopped in time, produces babyliss madness; he suffers indescribable misery for a period, until one morning his attention is arrested kate spade outlet online and his curiosity christian louboutin is aroused by certain Chinese letters on a teapot; his curiosity increases more and more, and, of course, in proportion as his new balance outlet curiosity is increased with respect to the Chinese marks, the misery in his brain produced by his mental affliction decreases. He sets about learning Chinese, and after the lapse of many years, during scarpe hogan which his mind subsides into replica watches a certain state of tranquillity, he acquires sufficient knowledge of Chinese to be able to translate with ease burberry outlet online the inscriptions to be found abercrombie and fitch on its singular crockery. Yes, the laziest of human beings, longchamp outlet through the providence of God nike free a being, too, of rather inferior capacity acquires the written part of a language so difficult that, coach purses as Lavengro said pandora charms on a swarovski jewelry former occasion, none but the cleverest people in Europe, the French, ralph lauren pas cher are nike free able to thomas sabo uk acquire pandora jewelry it. But God did not intend that man should merely acquire Chinese. north face pas cher He intended that he should air max pas cher be of use to his species, converse and, by timberland shoes the tn pas cher instrumentality of the first Chinese inscription which lacoste pas cher he translates, the one which first arrested his curiosity, nike air max he oakley is taught the duties of nike air max hospitality; yes, by means of an inscription in the longchamp language of a people who have ray ban uk scarcely an idea of hospitality themselves, God causes the slothful man to play giuseppe zanotti a useful and beneficent part in the ralph lauren world, relieving distressed wanderers, and, amongst others, Lavengro himself. But a striking indication of the man's surprising sloth is still apparent in what he omits to do; he valentino shoes has learnt Chinese, soccer jerseys the most difficult of languages, nfl jerseys and he practises acts of hospitality because he believes himself enjoined to do so by the Chinese inscription, but he hermes pas cher cannot tell the hour of the day by the converse shoes clock gucci handbags within his house; he can get on, he thinks, very well without being able to do so; therefore, from this one omission, it is easy to come to a nike roshe run conclusion as to what a sluggard's part the ray ban man would have hollister played christian louboutin shoes in life but for the dispensation of Providence; nothing but extreme agony could have air max induced such toms outlet a man to nike roshe do anything useful. He still continues, with all he has acquired, with all air max his juicy couture outlet usefulness, and with all his innocence of character, without any proper oakley sunglasses sense of religion, though he has attained a rather advanced age. Lavengro relates the lives of people so sac michael kors far asics shoes as they were placed before him, replica watches but no further. It was certainly a great defect links of london uk in so montre femme good longchamp outlet online a man to be without religion; it was likewise a great defect in so learned a man not to be able to tell what was o'clock. It is probable that God, in His loving kindness, will not cheap oakley sunglasses permit that man to go out of the world nike blazer pas cher without religion who knows but some powerful minister of the Church, full of longchamp zeal for the glory of God, will illumine that hollister canada man's dark mind perhaps some clergyman will come to coach outlet the parish who will visit him and teach him his duty to his God. Yes, it is very instyler ionic styler probable that such a man, before he dies, will have been made to love his God; whether he marc jacobs handbags will ever learn to know iphone 6 case what's o'clock is bottega veneta another matter. It is probable that nike trainers he will ghd go out of the world without knowing what's o'clock. michael kors outlet online It is vans outlet not so necessary to be nike huarache able to tell the time of day by the clock as to know one's God through His inspired word; a man insanity workout cannot get to heaven without religion, but a burberry pas cher man can get there very comfortably without knowing what's o'clock. But, above all, the care and providence of God are lululemon outlet manifested in the polo ralph lauren outlet case of Lavengro himself by the manner in which he is louis vuitton neverfull fuschia lining polo ralph lauren enabled to make his way in the world up to a certain period michael kors outlet without falling a prey louis vuitton alma mini either to vice or poverty. baseball bats In soccer shoes his history there is a wonderful illustration of part of the text, quoted oakley pas cher by his mother: 'I have been timberland young, and now am old, yet never saw I the righteous forsaken or karen millen his seed begging bread.' He is the son of good and honourable parents, gucci but at the critical period of life, that of entering into mcm handbags the world, he finds himself without any earthly friend christian louboutin outlet to birkin bag help him, yet he manages to make his way. hollisterco star wars vans shoes michael kors outlet online nike outlet After uhren tiffany kate spade louboutin shoes all, louis vuitton bags burberry outlet online air max tory burch sandals what nike air max burberry michael kors outlet ray ban seems bcbg max azria tory burch sandals christian louboutin uggs outlet normal ralph lauren outlet air jordan 2015 hermes birkin hollister canada to tiffany and co nike free run michael kors canada one oakley outlet michael kors outlet online gucci outlet michael kors outlet online person louboutin shoes christian louboutin pandora air max (me) burberry louis vuitton tiffany and co jewelry rolex watches might horloges hollister swarovski mac cosmetics seem nike easton bats nike factory store levis jeans interesting louis vuitton iphone 6 case replica watches michael kors outlet online sale to cheap boots tommy hilfiger canada polo ralph lauren outlet christian louboutin shoes someone nike roshe run mont blanc indoor soccer shoes burberry outlet online else adidas louboutin oakley nike shoes (you). nike running lululemon timberland outlet timberland outlet Maybe.
