    I don't think you've understood my point here. I'm highlighting that the popularity of football is already significant in places where the stadiums that meet the requirements are built, especially when the additional stadiums on your list are all premier league bar Villa and Newcastle who were both in the prem last season. That they already meet the requirements should be enough evidence that football is already popular in these places. I find the argument that hosting the world cup will encourage a lot more people in the UK to take up football to be extremely weak.
    I supported the motion, still will, I do agree it is a weak argument, although I certainly think the World Cup might encourage some young people to take it more seriously, and we could use something to improve the English talent (not saying this is that).

    I support it because I think it would be grand to hold it in England, the last time was 1966 after all, and could build on the reputation as a sporting Country, the Olympics is still remembered, Rio was the best games in what over a century, and we have the facilities already built for it.

    If you want those points you mentioned addressed I'm not the person to address them, sorry.

    (Plus as a bonus I don't support England so it will be either an amazing atmosphere as England do well or I get to sit and watch England crash and burn, it's a win win for me).

    The case of whether there are enough suitable stadiums is rubbish, there are plenty. We tabled a bid for the 2018 World Cup so obviously the FA think we have enough. Just off the top of my head:

    Wembley, Olympic Stadium, Emirates, Old Trafford, City of Manchester, St James' Park, Stadium of Light, Anfield, Goodison, Villa Park, Hillsborough, Elland Rode, AMEX, White Hart Lane, Rivierside, Pride Park, St Mary's even the King Power off the top of my head. Plus many more. We've got plenty of stadia.

    Even if you want a joint bid with Scotland and Wales you've got: Millennium, Cardiffy City and Liberty Stadiums as well as the Ibrox, Hampden and Celtic parks.

    The AMEX is the best.
