Expect To Be Amazed By Qatar In 2022

We just finished up the last World Cup this past summer. The world cup in Qatar in 2022 may seem really far away. However, for event planners and the city of Qatar, 2022 is just a blink of an eye away. As you read this article, thousands of individuals which of course includes World Cup groupie Brad Reifler are all getting Qatar ready for its world premier in 2022…maybe not as ready as Brad.

Hosting the World Cup is very similar in many ways to hosting the Olympics. The World Cup will bring visitors from around the world who would have never ventured to Qatar there. The World Cup will turn Qatar, for a short time, into a 24 hour prime time news location. This is Qatar’s chance to share itself with the world and sow how up to date and modern this Middle Eastern country really is.

One of the most impressive things about Qatar is how quickly the city was put together. 35 years ago,the capital city, which is now full of sky scrapers and fast cars, was merrily sand. Oil and gas has quickly made this Golf nation one of the wealthiest little countries in the world.

To show off its newly acquired wealth, Qatar is currently working on building between eight to twelve venues exclusively for the World Cup in 2022. They are working on making architecturally iconic stadiums that also incorporate the latest technology into their designs. Additionally, in order to account for the fear of the heat in this Middle Eastern nation, Qatar is working on using solar energy to keep the stadiums cool. Qatar will be a city to watch for some time.

Manchester City’s Manager in Trouble After West Ham Defeat

It is incredible how quickly your circumstances can change in soccer. A few months ago, Manuel Pellegrini was the most popular man in Manchester. His team had just won their second English Premier League title in three seasons and they were on the top. It had been a tight Premier League race, but City were the most convincing team over the ten month period.

Fast forward to October and Pellegrini finds himself in serious trouble. His team threw away a two goal advantage in Russia to draw 2-2 with CSKA Moscow. The result puts them in danger of missing out on the knockout stages of the Champions League. For a team with ambitions of winning the competition, that is a very poor prognosis.

Today saw City lose at West Ham United in the English Premier League. The result puts them in a difficult position to retain their title. If Chelsea beat Manchester United tomorrow, they would go EIGHT points clear of City. Margins can be overcome, but eight points is a lot to catch up, even if it is still October.

City were second best for most of the game against West Ham. Tom Rothman told me that they started poorly, with their passing and movement lethargic after the energy sapping trip to Russia and back. West Ham took the lead through Morgan Amalfitano and never looked back. They were good for their advantage in this game, and doubled the lead through Sakho with 15 minutes to go.

However, they could not muster an equalizer and dropped three valuable points in East London.
