Thailand V England - match cancelled ?


Recommended Posts

I've been reading reports in the UK press and it appears that this friendly is going to be cancelled as the Thai representative conveniently forgot to vote for us in the 2018 world cup - maybe he received a better offer?!?


Think this sums up the disaster that was our world cup bid.


This is bad news for the English people who live in Thailand as it would have been a good opportunity to see the national team play.



FA Acting Boss Quits Over Fifa World Cup Row


Alison Chung, Sky News Online

The acting chairman of the FA says he will quit because he no longer trusts members of Fifa after the failure of England's World Cup bid.


Speaking exclusively to Sky News, Roger Burden said he was not prepared to deal with people who were "not men of their word".


He had applied for the position of permanent FA chairman but has now withdrawn from the race.


He told Sky News he could see no point in England bidding for future World Cups while the rules remained the same.


"When we finished up with just one vote on top of our own - I find that very difficult to understand," he said.


"Prince William was promised a number of votes and only one of those materialised, that is a disgrace.


"I feel there are members of the Fifa executive committee, which is our governing body, who cannot be trusted - they are not men of their word and that's why I'm not prepared to deal with them.


Bid officials said as many as six of the 22 Fifa members had promised to vote for England and in the end only one did so apart from Britain's own member Geoff Thompson.


Sky sources said England will withdraw from a friendly against Thailand planned for next June as a result of the vote.


The game was agreed to try to secure the support of Thailand's Fifa committee member but after failing to win that vote, it is understood the FA will pull out of the fixture.


Mr Burden said: "We were equal top of Fifa's own technical assessment of the four bids.


"We were top of an independent assessment of the best commercial bids and our presentation on Thursday was widely acclaimed as the best of the 2018 and 2022 bids.


"Against this background, I am struggling to understand how we only achieved two votes. It is difficult to believe that the voting was an objective process.


"On top of that, Prince William, the Prime Minister and other members of our delegation were promised votes that did not materialise."


Mr Burden, who was appointed in May, will continue as acting chairman for the time being until a successor is appointed.

its that or all the WAG's lobbied to have it cancled.



The sooner I can forget that farce the better. :) They may as well just ask each bidding team to hand over a brown envelope and the one that contains the most money wins. It would be fairer and more transparent.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
