Quinn did a perfect job on selling Sunderland to the Drumaville Consortium and then Ellis Short. He did another great job with the World Cup bid but, as we suspected, no one was ever buying it.
While ever there are people like Beckham, Prince Whoever, Brooking, and their like, being involved we'll get nowehere. Wearing nice suits and nice smiles cuts no ice with the pack of grasping vultures at FIFA.
People like Quinn, who have the iron fist in the velvet glove would have made a difference but I'm glad we have him.
England looked like a bunch of frightened schoolboys.
