Well it seems that England (Wales, Scotland) have only put in a half arsed attempt at a bid for the 2018 World Cup. FIFA have already got their guns out at the FA that England has no "God given right" to host football and the FA seriously need to raise their game. Not really surprising, FIFA don't really like the UK. Even so, it takes the sparkle off any Back the Plymouth Bid. 2018 is a pipe dream for Argyle at the moment in the setting up of a South West bid to host the games that no one else wants, key being Argyle's new all singing and dancing stadium with buttons on.
2018 has, on the face of it, appeared to be concentrating the board's efforts on the finishing of Home Park, and there doesn't seem to be a hope in hell that Plymouth, even if England are successful, will get anything out of the tournament at all. Therefore, finishing the grandstand, with a view to adding on should be the main focus. But even before that, survival in the Championship is more important.
