I don't think there's been any suggestion so far (not that I've read anyway) that Qatar can't deliver a World Cup in June. I think it's more of a question of whether it would be better to hold it in...

"If you don't like it don't listen to it"....

"If you don't like it don't listen to it".

That's maybe good advice in terms of keeping your sanity, but I think it's unrealistic for everyone to abide by it. Negative comments about music are just...

Worth pointing out that a lot of Aberdeen fans don't live in the city and will be travelling up to the game as well. There are a lot of fans in the central belt - that's why we often get big away...

Well how big a chunk of the world are we looking for? You've just listed a part of the world that contains hundreds of millions of people.

I guess it's more what the show represents that people have a problem with. It's music as a marketing exercise - get the public to vote for a personality over the course of a TV show, give them some...

Bad news. One of the most unique musicians, but also one of the best. Rare that you get somebody that off the wall who also made great tunes.

The point is that we compromise on a large number of things. The idea that simply because we're the most powerful confederation we can get everything our own way is flawed.

Well the tournament has already been awarded there. It doesn't remove the World Cup from Qatar if it's played in June, it just arguably makes it a worse tournament.

You've got to look beyond Qatar,...

Arsenal have a chance, but I guess it will be said that it's not just a question of Barcelona being brilliant, it's also that it's a bad matchup of styles for Arsenal. It's easier to beat Barcelona...
