While Warner has pledged support for his region’s only candidate, the U.S., few believe that voters will decide in a hurry.

Last week Warner said 'This is England's time'. Seems his support for the US's bid is marginal at best.

I am not so sure that England will get 2018 according to what one reads on the net. US will get 18 or 22, because soccer's success in US would make FIFA billions richer, and China has hinted it will bid for 2026. Blatter will have an orgasm if US and China host WCs. Australia or Russia will get the remaining World Cup.

Jack Warner is a typical example of the egomaniacs and idiots running FIFA. He makes very personal comments about other soccer associations which are in no way professional. And for him to make a statement like 'this is England's time' is unfair to the competition and puts undue pressure on the England bid. Jack Warner thrives in his power games and is another example of why FIFA and UEFA need to be replaced.

No needs for the World Cup to go to England, Japan, Spain, or anywhere in Europe again. USA, Australia are my wishes....

Another sign the apocalypse might very well be upon us in 2012.
