Seems Joseph has got a threatening letter from the latest terror group ISIS in Iraq telling him to drop Qatar or there will be repercussions.

Could not happen to a nicer guy.
You stand up to them Sepp.

Go over there and show 'em who's boss.

Sepp won't bow to pressure. Unless it's pressure on his wallet seams.

Are there more important things ? And the money side is why Sepp Blatter is not to retire.

At present, the Sepp Blatter Memorial Museum in Zürich Enge takes shape. A uniaue combination of residential building, museum and shopping centre,

Go to Bahnhof Zürich ENGE, get out onto the "Tessiner-Platz" (Bahnhof Enge Platz to locals) and you already can see it

The doorman will be online with the tax-office. Foreigners CHF 50.--, well off locals CHF 20.-- and not so well off locals CHF 10.--

So that it will be the tallest building in this country


There will be a statue of him on Bahnhofplatz, possibly on Löwenstrasse/Bahnhofplatz corner, comparable to the one of Alrred von Escher http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alfred_...red_Escher.jpg

and a statue of Vladimir Ulyanov Lenin in front of the Volkshaus and another one in front of the Odeon ---- there already is the info-thing on the house in Spiegelgasse

Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

At seventy-eight years of age Blatter has confirmed he will stand for re-election for a fifth term in power. What a travesty, a modern dictator.

Re: Mr Joseph Sepp Bellend Blatter - FIFA corruption

I have just read that Russia only submitted a tiny amount of information. Excuse given that the computers used where leased and then destroyed afterwards, thus all emails etc where lost. Now you really couldn't make that up, oh yes they did and FIFA said no problem. As you are!!

Sorry, it was a terrible slur, FIFA has now found itself blameless. Who'd have thought it? http://www.bbc.com/sport/0/football/30491135
