    so a jordanian (LOL) wants to be president of FIFA.
    now, what the f-ck can a jordanian know about football?
    the president of FIFA must be a representative of the major countries: argentina, germany, spain, france, italy, maybe brazil, and not a w@nker from the deserts.

    Don't you ever learn or has the corruption in TDC passed you by?

    Blatter has made FIFA a fiefdom, just like TMBOA controls your country. Nobody is allowed to have another view from Blatter’s and all direction must be from him.

    I don’t GAF about football but I do abhor such individuals as these two.

    I hope this guy gets the position, I am sure his supporters are more than capable of advising him. He already KNOWS the direction: “The headlines should be about football, the beautiful sport, not about FIFA.”

    Sounds good to me, even if he is a Muslim, Blatter of course is a self-seeking crook.

    Difficult choice?

    Blatter is an old man. If he dropped down dead tomorrow it wouldn't be a surprise.

    Prince Ali's bank account speaks louder than Blatter's. He'll probably get in, even if he has to resort to bribery....after all, hasn't that become the name of the game ?
