Certainly. Though, whatever about the GAA giving the IRFU and the FAI use of Croke Park for Ireland games, will they lease the FA and FIFA the stadium for the crass commercialism of the quadrennial cash machine that is the FIFA World Cup?

I'd have thought it would just be Lansdowne as part of the bid in the same way it will just be the Millennium Stadium that's Wales' part of the bid

Would LR meet the criteria for a world cup game ?Isnt there a few conditions regarding closing roads/cordoning off areas that is way beyond what happens for normal games.

Why would England need Ireland to be part of it?
More chance of them getting it if its a joint bid?

England don’t need Scotland, Wales or Ireland but if it makes their bid seem better they will gladly throw a few group and 2nd round games in those countries.

Spreads out the costs given it's a 48 team tournament now

English FA will probably need the FAI in the voting process also, never mind the tournament itself.

There's Nations out there who are bitter the fact England/Wales/NI/Scotland have their own independent FA's rather than a single FA so the FAI will be used to reach out to those.

There aren't. Some RoI fans on a chatboard # nations out there.

But humor me and name one or two of these nations. 

Quote so the FAI will be used to reach out to those

Bit of a self contradiction surely? Where the "nations out there" might be annoyed is if 4 or 5 teams (including RoI) co-host and thus pre-qualify, leaving fewer places for everyone else in Europe.

As frequently above, England can stage the tournament single-handed. Any games staged in Glasgow, Cardiff or Ireland are problematic. A way round it would be Wales and Scotland still having to qualify and NI getting a consolation prize (say a senior women or u21 men finals

I think that if a World Cup match were to be played in Dublin, it would make Joe Duffy’s shortlist for highlight of the year.

loads think Argentina / Uruguay are the favorites...which they might be due to the 100 year anniversary and anti-English sentiment. Would love to see some games at the Aviva though.

UEFA will have 16 places at that World Cup. 

There's no way they'd have Ireland and Britain taking up 4 or 5 spots. Especially as England could bid for it on their own. 

At most it'll be a England & Scotland bid.

The only reason England need anyone at all is to shore up votes from FA's they might not have great relationships with, they would probably hope Ire/NI/Sco/Wal could help persuade some of those to vote that way. It certainly isn't lack of stadia or infrastructure. 

Uefa certainly won't allow 5 to qualify as hosts either, as others have pointed out. Think this is more a hopeful punt at a debt reduction strategy by the FAI more than anything else. There won't be a GAA element involved either for this very reason, although that won't stop articles speculating about Croke Park, Salthill, PUC or whatever yer having yerself. I'd imagine that in FAI land, they would see this gig as Lansdowne only, and already have the Europa league final from a few years ago to back it up. They will also have the Euro 2020 behind them by the time the bid gets serious (or not). 

As the Nordies have not got a suitable venue as yet, we can presume they are only included as it would have looked poor of England to leave them out. Maybe they could play games at a refurbished Casement Park, that would go down well with the Windsor brigade........
