Coe should stick to what he can do best, bulshit in the Lords, he has little if any interest in football just like many of the others on this whatever it is; sounds like a nice little jolly for the boys and a few more corporate tickets down the pan.

He's a winner, end of. It's not like we have many of them in British footballing administration.

As for the economy, given most commentators expect recovery to begin in a year or two, I bet there are a few countries who would love to have the influx of money Britain will get during Olympic year.

that is assuming that all the builders get paid, stay in business and everything gets built

You scratch my back...I'll scratch yours. The thank you for allowing the FA to get their noses in the Olympics trough. There's money to be made and they sure know where to be to skim the cream.

Things will definitely get built. Might be late, but it will be done - just.

As for the economy, it's built on confidence and expectation. An expected influx of money into the financial centre (especially given recent events), higher takings, profits, share prices, confidence - for the whole economy. Spending and the confidence to spend is key.

If London fails, so do all other regions economically. If it suceeds, then there's a knock-on effect for the rest of the country in the long term.

Obviously London will have the biggest benefit. Whether it's right or wrong, whether we should've bid etc, why the IOC want a compact bid rather than spreading the events around - that's another debate.

But it has the potential to be a boost for all regions, not just London.

-------------------------
the economy is built on the bull**** of greedy, power hungry, egotistical vermin and the herd mentality of stupid people who buy the bull****

the blind leading the blind, theres no quick fix feelgood factor thats going to make things better.

90%+ of all the money in the world is virtual, it doesn't exist. there is no fix,

the only way the economy gets better is for gordon brown or someone to blag us all back into the fictional fantasy land we've just left with a bump, for us all to go back to sleep and to start dreaming again <ok>

Well I can't see a single tourist coming to scotland wales or yorkshire because of the games bening held in london.

London is already the richest city in the uk and the south of england of england the richest region in the uk and now more funding is being pushed their way and it's the tax payers from all over the uk who are funding it, frankly it;s a disgrace

well done sebastian and co another brilliant bit of planning <doh>

This slimeball should leave this alone, he promised a cycling club on the outskirts of london that they would have the new facilities on their site returned to the previous ownership, he has broken this promise, might might be bad for football, but so is seb coe!
