Knob-head and hypocrite. (Neville, not you Ted)

Perish the thought, YT.
On the upside I'll think of him as Gary Neville, KHH from now on.

I hate the nomenclature attached to both sides of the so-called culture war with serious debate often reduced to name calling (the attached article sounding more like a middle-school assignment than serious journalism), but I do think Hislop did a good take down on the hypocrisy of Neville and others like him. I find it hard how you can justify taking money to work at the WC if you acknowledge the human rights issues in Qatar and Neville's previous explanations seem to be more about making himself feel better about it. When talking about the WC bringing about positive change in the country Paul Merton quipped about the Berlin Olympics doing a good job of preventing WWII.

It would take a special kind of mad fan to even go to Qatar. I can imagine cunning use of TV cameras to avoid showing swathes of empty football stands, or perhaps CGI.
I can understand players are contractually obliged to play, but the conditions are going to be very difficult, so I don't expect to see any exemplary football.
For me it's another snooze-fest. Protest all you like, it's all done and dusted.
