    Default Platini arrested

    In connection to alleged corruption relating to the Qatar 2022 WC bid. Who'd have thought it, eh? It all seemed so legitimate!

    I think there's also a question of a Picasso painiting that he might have been gifted for the 2018 WC in Russia. Hasn't been found yet though so they're trying to pin something on him fr the 2022 edition..
    Don't know if they'll make anything stick though. It all leads back to Sarkozy and Qatar which is probably the prime target.

    Are you saying there is something dodgy about awarding the World Cup to a country with 2.6 million people, massive amounts of disposable income, no footballing heritage, no stadiums, where it's too hot to go for a walk in June, let alone play elite level football?

    Well according to Platini's lawyer there's nothing dodgy about anything at all, never has been, never will be and that he's just responding politely to requests for information and hasn't been placed under any judicial restraint. Mind you Platini probably pays him a shedload of money to say that.

    As always, nothing will come of it with regards to Qatar being stripped of the WC, and thousands more will continue to die building the stadiums and infrastructure.

    The entire thing is an embarrassment to football.
