Blatter Out!

Postby An-D-D on Tue Jun 02, 2015 6:54 pm

What a fantastic piece of news! I thought it had to happen after recent events, but didn't see it coming as quickly as it did. Now we just have to hope the much needed reforms actually happen.

If anyone hasn't seen this video by John Oliver regarding FIFA, I strongly recommend you watch it:
https://www.facebook.com/LastWeekTonight/videos/720778981384447/
4 minutes 20 is ABSOLUTE GOLD - couldn't believe it when I saw it.

That is actually the second piece John Oliver has done on FIFA. If you haven't seen the first one, you should definitely give it a watch too - even non-football fans will find it entertaining:

I'm hoping he does a third video now, with a reaction to the news.

Will be interesting to see if anything changes for 2018 or 2022. Can't see it happening myself.

Not sure if this is still a possibility, but saw this last week:
http://news.sky.com/story/1502450/sepp-blatter-could-stay-as-fifa-president

Even if he only considered it, that would still be outrageous. Let's just hope it's nothing more than that.

Maradonna has a few screws loose. Can 't ever see him being a serious candidate.

Someone like Beckham might be taken a bit more seriously, but still not sure he would get the backing needed from the people that matter. I think it does really need to be run a bit more like a company, with the CEO and board structure. Its' designed so that you don't have a dictatorship like scenario with lots of shady dealings - which is what we have now.

With that in mind, someone with business experience would be good. To me that rules out most of the ex-footballer candidates. Obviously they need to be involved with football though, so perhaps someone that's been a football chairman for a lot of years?

You don't think Beckham has business experience? I'm sure he knows a thing or two by now lol

My vote would be Michael Owen, such a nice guy.

Not at the running a company sort of level. I imagine him more like Del Boy - a bit of a wheeler dealer and knows how to negotiate!
