    A Scotsman backing an English bid for a World Cup. The man is a Charlatan. If there were no votes in it, he wouldn`t be doing it. Lets hope he never becomes the next PM of this country. It has to be Reid or Cameron.

    Obviously Gordon Brown is a big Lightening Seeds fan and wants to hear a relaunch of the Three Lions on my Shirt ....Footballs Coming Home song in 2018 !

    Seriously though, The World Cup Finals are long over due a visit back to the birth place of the Beautiful Game. If England is successful in its application to be the host nation, I'm sure they will be the best finals ever !

    Yes, It will have been 52 years since we last hosted one in 2018 and Euro '96 was a great example showing that we can do it. It will be Europe's turn again and within Europe England's turn and in all honesty who would bid against them? With new stadiums such as the Emirates, Wembley and others planned amongst the ones we already have such as Old Trafford and St Jame's we have coverage all over the nation to only exception being the Midlands. Villa Park is worthy but that is only one. The stadiums in the East Midlands are not quite good/big enough

    Its part of Brown's job to offer support for any bid..apart from anything else it would bring in a huge amount of income. And by 2018 we will have many top quality big stadiums all over the country.

    Its hard to imagine any British football fan being against bringing the WC to England, it would be terrific.

    its about time we bid for the world cup i was hoping we would have had it in 2006 just like we did in 1966 but noooo never happend i think if we got it it would be good for our country and also the people who doubt our stadiums and hooligans can see for themselves we aint the worst country for footy violence and that we can put a great world cup show

    The Olympics are going to cost enough

    Nevermind Iraq, Afghanistan (remember them?), Africa and our own impoverished, we're going to bring the torunament with the most boring football in the world to our country.

    The money would be much better spent in developing grassroots sport.

    It is just another diversion to take the electorates mind off the devastation he and his rotten government are perpetrating on this once proud nation. smoke & mirrors, DON'T FALL FOR IT!

    At least they're keeping our money in THIS country for a change!!! (Instead of throwing it away on projects abroad).
