Between the devil and the deep blue sea
So in less than two months' time - on 1 Jun 2011, actually - delegates to Fifa will have to choose whether they still side with incumbent president Sepp Blatter or choose Mohamed bin Hammam as the new Fifa president. That's not much of a choice really, because all the delegates will be doing is to choose between the devil they know and the devil they know. No, it's not a typing error. I really do mean it. Fifa elections mean nothing when you know that one of them is too dim to understand that the game needs to evolve with new technology and the other is too devious and also brimming with his own self importance.
