So naive Dubaiguy - It's simply because someone hasn't received his backhand yet. It'll get sorted.

This really bodes well for the 2022 FIFA World Cup. Meanwhile, on a completely unrelated subject, congratulations to Aston Villa for being the new European U-19 Champions. With English teams coming first, second and fourth in the tournament, who says that the future of English football is dull?. http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/news/p...180435878.html

Stop being lazy and start your own thread. Whilst I am fascinated by the delays in Doha airport, U-19 football just doesn't float my boat.

I won 70 quid on this.

Sorry for not sharing the tip - didn't even occur to me

Ladbrokes had Villa at 3.5/1 and chelski at Evens. The Villa u19 squad kicked ass in this tourny.

Anyone who has been involved in this project knows exactly what has gone wrong .

Countless delays due to poor decision making and non availability of the client to sign off major contract changes and contractors having to go to court to chase money .

Qatari's are seriously poor people to try and do business with , they know the cost of everything and the value of nothing .

They will fall down from a great height during the next 3-4 years as it's put up or shut up time in Doha.

Piss poor country

I am going to stay until 2025. There is no way I am missing out on seeing the complete ***** up that is going to be. Can you imagine 20 German/Dutch/English lads shirts off beer in hand walking up to the coppers here?
