Sound of Football Podcast 65 Part 2 - 2018/2022 World Cup Bid

In this episode, Chris, Graham and Terry reflect on the surprising (or perhaps not-so-surprising) FIFA announcement that Russia will host the 2018 World Cup and Qatar will host the 2022 equivalent.

Could the England bid team have avoided so much disappointment, frustration and anger by simply not bidding in the first place, and would it have been better to simply stuff £15 million into a large brown envelope and send it to Jack Warner?

All this plus our regular attack on the British media, a Simpsons reference or two and even a mention for Ian Holloway - on this week's Sound of Football.
