Sepp Blatter remains in control of FIFA for another term, really he has....

Saturday 30th May 2015
FIFA and corruption seem to go hand in hand lately, despite the recent arrests of seven top ranking officials and the 2022 World Cups being awarded to Qatar it seems that we will be stuck with Sepp Blatter in control of HMS FIFA for another term, after he won the latest election this week. This comes despite calls from several Football Associations for the President to resign (even UEFA Chairman Michel Platini asked for a change, despite congratulating Sepp when he won....).

For anyone doubting that FIFA could be the tiniest bit corrupt and omnipotent, check out the video below from John Oliver which was broadcast just before the start of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
As you would expect, the internet has reacted to the news of more Blatter with subtlety and decorum.
Finally this one sums it all up:
Mick Bates

Mick is a passionate fan of Coventry City and has watched from the sidelines (and had the privilege of seeing the inner workings during an exciting two years in corporate sales there) to see the once mighty Sky Blues fall from the Premier League, then fail to sparkle in the Championship, relegated from League One and wind up in League Two before winning the most important fixture in football competitions - The Checkatrade Trophy final followed by a heart-stopping promotion back to League One.

As well as supporting the Sky Blues, Mick appreciates all levels of football and loves a good book to keep himself entertained as well as a few hours on FIFA or Football Manager as time allows.

He also keeps an eye on all the major English leagues and regularly enjoys a flutter looking for that elusive treble!
