FIFA getting their house in order
Even though it’s been over a year since Sepp Blatter fell on his own (plastic, retractable) sword, there’s still a weird smell around FIFA. You know, a bit like that time your housemate was sick on the carpet, and however much you cleaned it, you’d still get a regular whiff of something not being quite right. New president Lex Luth… Gianni Infantino really needs to make a grand gesture to change the mood. How about moving to a much more humble base and donating their ludicrously ostentatious bazillion-dollar Swiss HQ to, ooh, a refugee charity? Let’s face it: the only way that FIFA are going to get their house in order is to give it to somebody else. Failing that, they could be just a little more transparent about the process that saw the 2018 World Cup awarded to Russia (which definitely promises to be a whole load of fun after this summer’s shenanigans in Marseille) and the 2022 tournament to Qatar. It would be a start, at least.
