Next controversy will be the three women referees selected to officiate.

Not too sure on this. Am thinking of the gymnast who failed to wear correct islamic dress for the medal ceremony. It appears to me that correct female dress is not a requirement during the activity, but only after the event. We will have to wait and see.

Does anyone actually care about this world cup. Rather than being a celebration of football at the end of the season, it's a PR campaign by a corrupt regime in a corrupt regime.

Personally I couldn't give a toss

Yup. Totally not got any feel for it.

A simple solution (if you have money) is to set up camp in either Dubai or Bahrain or Oman ( Dubai is probably best because they have the Doha express flight out of the relatively new airport just out past Jebel Ali which after a 45 minute flight has a fast track service through Doha immigration, then just fly up for the games that you are interested in & back afterwards - last time I used it the Doha express was in service about 8 times a day so no bother getting a flight time to suit you.

If anyone is considering going & wants a local heads up about anything to do with the region to help them make plans feel free to DM me - I am a bit out of touch as I have been out of the region since 2018 but I lived in Dubai for some 20 years & travelled the region freely so in general my local knowledge will hold good -

I just saw on the telly that when the Wales team first arrived somewhere (their hotel, I think), they were greeted by a large crowd of 'volunteers' pretending to be fans. Also there were 6 genuine Welsh people/fans, except they were kept at a distance from the players "for security reasons" so they couldn't interact with them at all, whereas the fake fans were just a couple of feet away from Hennessey and co.

Some games will inevitably be less popular & the prospect of half empty stadiums will be difficult to overcome.

In all honesty this is probably just about the worst possible time to be holding a major tournament in a contentious destination - The world is still reeling from the effects of Covid / lockdown / Brexit / Ukraine / economic meltdown etc, so a good many of those who may have considered going (during more prosperous, less challenging times) will inevitably fall by the wayside -

Not sure what you are saying. Is it that 'fake fans' will be the Qatari solution to otherwise empty stadiums?
