Weekly Photoshop – World Cup Bidding

08/12/2010

So apparently England didn’t win the right to host the 2018 World Cup. Did you hear about that? I must have missed it… Lots of people weren’t very happy with Mr Blatter and his buddies at FIFA. To be honest I don’t really have a problem with Russia getting 2018; Qatar in 2022 will be the issue. Anyway, it’s difficult not to be libellous in this situation so best keep it clean I suppose.

Blatter was the master of deception - the process of secretly extracting valuable commercial information from the unconscious mind of his targets while they dreamt of hosting the World Cup.

Lost amid the furore of the 2018 decision was the announcement that the 2026 tournament will be held on Sepp Blatter's giant ego. Rumours that the 2030 World Cup will be held up his arse are however currently unsubstantiated...

Weekly Photoshop – England’s Internet Broadcast

15/10/2009

Quick one this week as this is being written on Tuesday night before heading to Paris. How very glamorous. After Setanta’s collapse, the rights to England’s away game against Ukraine were up for grabs once more. As the BBC, ITV, Sky nor ESPN wanted any part of paying £3m to broadcast a meaningless match it was left to Perform to pick up the game and stream it.

Now as a regular user of somewhat legally dubious streams to Arsenal games which aren’t on Sky or ESPN I know how frustrating the experience can be. Small picture, buffering issues, foreign commentary – it can be pointless at times. It can be good on other occasions but I think ultimately both of us at The Sportboys would much rather be down the pub with the Football Guy and others. Anyway, it was quite a fun topic for which there are a couple of entries.

After their shenanigans last week, Australia once again try to hijack England's World Cup bid with some crafty internet hacking.

There was certainly one key which got a good workout during Ukraine v England.
