Every time I heard about FIFA, I wonder why the people who voted for Blatter would vote for real change. Cynically, the only reason they would do so would be if there is something in it for themselves.
Why would people (including the FA) vote for Platini if he's promising change that won't be delivered? Why would Africa and Asia vote for a guy promising to change the status quo, when Blatter redistribution of wealth has made a massive difference to certain regions? And why would anyone outside of the US, France, Germany and the UK vote for whoever England thinks is best? We were the reason Blatter won last time out and why the world cup ended up in Qatar!
Platini seems like a terrible odds on jolly to me.
Moon has declared he's standing, having previously been linked with supporting another candidate. 16/1 with shout red man and his PR bandwagon. Thoughts?
Probably end up with Platini plus one maybe two others max.
Despite Platini being arguably almost as questionable as blatter some of the things he has done he is a very Clever and astute man.
Suspect he wins easily by default.
