He said he doesn't know what the future holds, except for who's hosting the next 5 World Cups ;)

whatever who comes next , what does Jordanian guy knows about football , what is jordan in football world

Im Arabic i don't support Arabic people just to take high positions like this for no reason ,

i would like to see new FIFA guy is English , German or Spanish ,


#Note
FIFA President has been about consolodation of power for over 2 decades now. I wouldn't worry about who runs it right now as long as they uncover the corrupt part of it and start new.
Amazing logic !!

If you're Arabic you don't know anything about football , also you have no right to be a head of FIFA if your country in s**t at football , by this logic no Englishmen should be allowed to head Fifa , at least not for now .

#Fucklogic

Btw booba just for your info Ali is Uefa backed candidate , platini was chicken enough to not run himself as he thinks beating blatter is almost impossible .
Who is allowed to vote? Because I'm curious why Blatter is still tipped as the favorite. What kind of asshat would vote for him unless he gets bribed and has no morals?
http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_men%27s_national_association_football_teams

There you go jeroen , these are the list of FA's that will vote on presidental elections

And read this for reasons on why blatter was always favorite

https://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/news/analysis-undeterred-arrests-football-boss-blatter-plots-another-142756661--sow.html

In short apart from European nations he have support and friends in most other FA's and all FA regardless of their size have same voting rights , europ have some 50 odd votes and majority of rest is in blatter's support .
I really disagree with your reasoning here, Booba.
This is obviously how the voting system works, duh:

Last Poem for the season
-----------------------------------------------

Gerrard's last match is one that will be remembered forever
Letting Crouch and Adam go may not have been that clever

How good were The Potters, it’s as if their inner beast awoke
But the question now is can they do it on a wet night in Stoke?

The post season has already delivered some wows
Ancelotti was sacked, I bet that raised some eyebrows

The BPL also had many wow moments that were quite fitting
Like Phil Jones's crawling being faster than Giroud sprinting

What about Cesc's 18 assists and Kane's 30 plus goal spree
Or Chelsea Everton's crazy thriller and Spurs beating the blues 5-3

Arsenal's revenge against Liverpool where Sanchez was speedy
Or Gerrard's champions league free kick which was trademark Stevie
Adam's goal or QPR getting relegated because they were very sh*tty
Southampton slaughtering Sunderland and Utd actually beating City

Costa crimes, campaigns and cocaine news articles waiting at your door
Forget cocaine Jake, it's the booze that'll hurt your Livermore

Liverpool fans editing their Sterling shirts by taking out the Sterl
As they prepare for his inevitable departure and Ings's arrival

Sunderland have a big dick, but do they know how to use it?
Gerrard with the most unfortunate ending for a captain since the Titanic?

Can Mourinho have a 3rd season where the club doesn't go backwards?
Can Spurs finally rid themselves of their Europa League anchors?

Van Gaal has been far more entertaining than his actual team have been
But United's next season is where the success needs to begin

Super Frank bowed with a trademark goal and Juventus won another scudetti
Finishing 2nd place with a golden boot and glove is not too bad for City

So who is the bigger c*nt? The English FA or Sepp Blatter..
Ronaldo scoring another hattrick.. right when it doesn't matter

But Ronaldo won the pichichi and Messi won the league, everyone's happy
Vermaelen winning a potential treble from the beach? That's catchy

With Carlo gone, who will be next to sit on the Madrid throne
I hope Perez knows that John Carver isn't venturing far from the phone

They better act quickly because Big Sam won't be available forever
Rafa may also be available lol, Oh s**t he’s actually a legit contender

:P

F.B.I. agents arrest 8 FIFA officials on allegations of bribery and corruption.

Later in the day the lead F.B.I agent informs the reporters that it has all been a misunderstanding and all chargers are to be dropped, as he drove away in his brand new Bugatti Veyron :)

Sepp Blatter was not arrested... -_-
Some nobodies will be tried and found guilty but Blatter will pretend he had nothing to do with it and be re-elected, Qatar will have their WC.

That's how the world works, sadly enough.
@ Honestabe, Jeroen

You may be right in thinking that, but there are reasons to believe this will run deep into FIFA's core.

The first is that this isn't simply an inside report conducted by FIFA itself (which amounts to nothing more than a PR move). The US government has gone after FIFA, partly because Americans were involved in the corruption process. CONCACAF and FIFA both have HQs in the US, which puts some of their actions under US jurisdiction.

No, Blatter was not arrested, but I think he is the goal. Chuck Blazer, an American, essentially "turned" (to avoid charges) and led to the arrest of these now 14 individuals. All that is needed is some of these lower ranking officials (or Vice President) to turn as well to expose what is going on in the presidency.

Racketeering, money laundering, etc. These are serious charges, and the fact that this is being conducted by the US government and FBI hopefully gives us anti-FIFA-ites serious reason to believe that this could be the beginning of the end for FIFA as we know it.
Oh well it seems whole s**t house is going down

Brazil president Rousseff: "If they investigate our bid for the World Cup, they should investigate all the bids..."

Fifa officials accused of taking $10m bribe from South Africa government to vote for them to host 2010 World Cup . BBC

Would be quite satisfying if Qatar is stripped off the 2022 hosting rights , as this bid bought spot light on poor labor conditions which existed way before this bid and in the end they won't be able to host it either .

This might be bit late to have an effect on fridays elections bit I hope arrested people speaks up and blame blatter , just take down the whole thing and let's rebuild it from scratch .
Let's hope you're right Joey! I would like nothing better for football than to see a crook like Blatter imprisoned or forced to build a stadium in 50°C :P
Some good news.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-32895048

8 FIFA officials arrested in Zurich on charges that include money laundering, racketeering and wire fraud. One of them being the Vice President of FIFA

Fantastic news. About time these people get exposed.
FIFA is so bloody corrupt, backwards, unaccountable fiefdom.

The shake up has started. End the lies and fraud!!!!!

Uncle Sam still has bad blood over missing out on the WC I see. Do you know that if FIFA strips Qatar of its host right the US are next in line to receive it? No coincidence there. Corruption and politics are hand in hand unfortunately.
I think it's up to 9 atm.

14 people charged total so far.
FIFA said they instigated this investigation. So am I safe to assume those arrested are all pro-Ali?
I'm told it took Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig to infiltrate their system.
They are being charged by the feds because they were using US banks and allegedly the bribery plot was done in the US as well.
Lol inevitable really. ShouLdve been caught 5 years ago
This good for now, but nothing would change unless the final person they arrest and charge is Blatter

Fifa 96 was the best!!
You could only score from the behind the corners of the penalty box, haha good times.

Shaymoose you lose points for not including Roger Moore.
Damn it! Don't even think about changing my dp to the dunce kid!! I must deduct a few pts from you for not posting in the right section though if we're playing that game lol
✔Name 1 Underated player in ur team this season (does the job well but doesnt get enough credit)

✔And 1 overated player in ur team (alot of hype and promise but does not live up to potential/expectation)

*** Other league fans (Barcelona/Real/Juve etc) , feel free to place ur opinion
Underrated: Willian
Overrated: Ivanovic
+1
Underrated: Sissoko
Overrated: Cabella (expected so much more of him this season)
Underrated: Henderson
Overrated: Raheem $terling
+2
Underrated: Mertesacker
Overrated: Ramsey (had a inconsistent season)
Underrated: Pedro, this guy has always given it his all at our club and is still second string even after proving that he is very much at the top of his game winning everything all the time. Sad to see that he is completely underrated by everyone. Glad he is loyal to his club that gave him everything that he could have ever wanted from life.

Overrated: Damn... our whole team has been incredibly solid. Sorry... tried to think hard and just can't seem to find a weak link lol
Underrated : busquets,as always.He is as much important as messi in our team,yet he rarely gets noticed.
Honourable mention : Pedro.
Overrated : I didn't see one in this season to be honest:-)
+1
Underrated: Oscar
Overrated: Ivanovic
Underrated - Monreal. Has been quietly effective and managed to keep Gibbs out of the starting XI. He's more conservative than Gibbs but that balances well with our very adventurous right side.

Overrated - difficult since Arsenal players seem (to me) to get a lot of stick and little praise in return. I'd have to say that Ospina has been pretty overrated by many. Although he's no clown, he has shown that he is also not on the same level as someone like De Gea. But thats harsh, and I'm struggling to pick a man who has been praised to the high heavens other than Sanchez.
+1
Underrated: Fellaini
Overratted: Di Maria
+2
Underrated: Oscar
Overratted: Mikel
Underrated: two new arrivals; Claudio Bravo and Ivan Rakitic. They're rated quite highly by close Barça followers but not yet by non-fans.
* Bravo has surprised me; I knew he was a very good goalkeeper, but he's actually world class. I'd rate him on par with Courtois even; part of the top 5 in the world.
* Rakitic is about as good as we could have hoped for: great skill on the ball, outstanding passing ability, flair and a good long shot, but he's also the hardest worker in our midfield. Truly an exemplary player who can rightly call himself an heir to Xavi.

Overrated: Busquets, Alves, Neymar
* Busi has been decent, but in the past 2-3 years he's been making more errors and displayed more lapses in concentration than before.
* Alves had a very good season, but in the two seasons before that he annoyed me tremendously with one brilliant game and then 3 terrible ones where all his passes and crosses were wayward and he didn't defend at all. It had all to do with his attitude since his skill is outstanding if he's actually focused.
* Neymar has also been great since he arrived here, but people seem to rate him as the third best player worldwide often. He's not. He has the potential to become the best once Messi declines, but his decision-making is still very often poor (too much running with the ball and no great vision to spot typical Barça-style through balls yet), his finishing is OK but not great yet and he's sometimes a bit lazy in defense when he needs to help out. All three of them are still great players, but I feel their enormous fame makes them unfocused and sloppy sometimes - and therefore a bit overrated.
+2
Underrated: Giroud
Overrated: Giroud
+3
Underrated: Philippe Coutinho

Overrated: Sterling (not saying it cause he wants to leave)
+1
Underrated: Ashley young. He's been running at fullbacks and beating players nearly all season. He's kept out di maria. Honestly wanted him gone for most of the year, he always seems to flatter for a few games and then be poor for months.. But he has made the biggest improvement in the squad from last year. Much less diving and hiding, much more chance creation and bravery with the ball.

Overrated: Di Maria. Started the season like a house on fire. At some point he got injured, got his house burglarized, and then never recovered his form. I think this happened right around when Argentina went all the way to hong kong for glamour friendlies. Looks bereft of confidence, needs to sort it out next season. Hopefully he can go to copa America and regain some swag. Much more likely he gets injured and sent home early but I hope he stays fit and wins the tournament with a major contribution.
+1
Underrated: Henderson
Overrated: Skrtel
underrated: Santi Cazorla


Overated : Giroud and Ospina

like one guy said in order to win trophies you need a top striker and a top keeper. we don't have either, that's the reason we always strugle in big games and won't win trophies
+1
I would have loved to see Giroud trotting out there for LFC rather than some of the retreads that were playing striker this season. Would probably be in the top 4 with someone as overrated as Giroud.
+1
Underrated: Henderson
Overrated: Sterling
+1
Underrated: Bonucci, Lichtsteiner
Overrated: Honestly none, Big ass dissapointment: Llorente.
+1
Underrated: TC23
Overrated: De Gea
Underrated:

1) Cazorla: Alexis gets the headlines, but ask any Arsenal fan that on his day, Cazorla would walk onto any team and hold his own. The man is just a joy to watch. Very underrated due to the fact he was criticized heavily for being played out of position on the wing last year

2) Ozil: To watch Ozil, you have to watch him only, and not the whole match. He somehow "disappears" but always gets most of our Assists somehow. Its like that kid in class who slept through the whole semester yet gets an A in the end.

3) Monreal: The most underrated of the 3. Very solid, reliable defender who gets overlooked. His lifestory in Arsenal goes as follows. Heavily criticized by fans 2 years ago, Somewhat appreciated by Arsenal fans last year, while others still used him as a scapegoat to the defensive problems that plagued us in the last few years. This year, Hailed as the next thing since sliced bread in our defence.

Overrated:

1) Szczesny: Reflex of a cat, Decision making of an oaf. The mans a ticking time bomb. Its like he sees a golden watch dangling right outside of his box which he has to collect. The worst thing is some Arsenal fans think he's quality despite being given chance after chance to prove himself. The last straw for me was the United FA Cup semi finals where he came out of his box to close down Rooney and followed him almost all the way to the throw in. Mind you he didnt need to come out

2) Ramsey: By overrated, I mean most fans had huge expectations of him even though he's been stuck on the right wing. Quality player when played in his preferred position

3) Welbeck/Giroud: You simply cannot win the premier league without a reliable 30 goal a season striker/center forward. Anything less is a waste. Giroud was on form and I had hopes, but he hasn't scored in his last 9 league goals. Definitely overrated the both of them
+1
Underrated: Giroud
Overrated: Ozil (42.5M pounds vs 32M Pounds for Hazard)
Underated: Ivanovic (for all the CFC fans who don't rate him)
Overated: not many this season, probably Oscar if I had to choose
Underrated: Cezar Azpilicueta; Chelsea's best defender by miles. Even on his opposite side he's one of the best pure defenders in the league. Just don't ask him to cross the ball.

Overrated: Oscar; his numbers are on par with the best CAM's in England and then he goes silent come January. 3 straight seasons he's scored some of the nicest goals in England and Europe. 3 straight seasons his second half of the season he's dissapeared. We've let go of Mata and Kevin DeBruyne because of Oscar. And to be fair to Oscar he's one of the most overworked footballers in the world playing an average of nearly 80 games for club and country for the past 3 seasons without more than a week off in that span. This summer is his first long break since before he played for Chelsea. Hopefully it helps him.
What do you get if you cross an evil, conniving, perilous, duplicitous, corrupt bastard with Sepp Blatter?
