Two things: Valcke was probably correct in what he said but was too blunt. Second, beer sales being a point of contention is pretty strange at this point.

@ paulinusa given that budweiser is already one of the official sponsors of this world cup the beer issue is actually quite a significant issue for fifa and a ban on beer (or more accurately budweiser) sales at the stadiums would probably a breach by fifa of that sponsorship agreement. completely agree that valcke was right to make the statements he made, there have been others saying similar things about the lack of preparation for sometime now, instead of getting angry they should get on with the job of sorting it out.
