As fans still puzzle over Fifa's decision to hand World Cups to Russia and Qatar last week, Nicolas Sarkozy's pressure on Michel Platini to vote for Qatar's 2022 bid is no secret. Apparently France's president wanted Qatar to increase its order for five Airbus 380s. And as Qatar Airways' chief executive, Akbar al-Baker, announced seven days before the vote: "Definitely we will consider increasing this order." Perhaps those considerations have been made a little easier by events in Zurich. Germany has similar business imperatives, and just maybe they also influenced its executive-committee member, Franz Beckenbauer, though we cannot be sure. It is known that Beckenbauer is close to Gerhard Schröder, the former Germany chancellor. Schröder, who is on the board of Gazprom (which is also the _16m-a-year sponsor of Schalke, the big club in Schröder's native region). Maybe Gazprom's Nord Stream Gas Pipeline, linking Germany to Russia under the Baltic Sea, was bringing Moscow an early dividend ahead of its opening next fodboldtrøjer børn year when Beckenbauer voted for Russia for 2018. Industrial Germany's thirst for minerals may also have played a part for 2022. Having been the only one of six voters to keep his first-round promise to Australia's 2022 bid, Beckenbauer joined the Qatari bandwagon after Australia's elimination. This no doubt pleased Germany's current chancellor, Angela Merkel. She is frowning on the hostile takeover bid from Spain's ACS (which in Florentino Pérez just so happens to share a chairman with Real Madrid) for Hochtief, Germany's biggest builder. This Monday, Hochtief issued 7m new shares for ¤400m (£337m), significantly diluting ACS's stake. The buyer of these discounted shares? Why, the state of Qatar. Perhaps David Cameron and the country he leads missed out last Thursday not only on a World Cup but a lot more besides. Fifa plot thickens An early day motion cropped up in Westminster on Monday. "That this House believes that it would be a good idea if all those involved in the failed World Cup bid showed a little humility and good grace instead of continually whingeing and moaning about the unfairness of Fifa and the bidding process and, while regretting that England was able only to accumulate two votes out of 22, congratulates Russia and Qatar on their success," Labour's Roger Godsiff proposed. Digger will not argue with the analysis that people should not try to rehabilitate their own reputations at the expense of English international relations in football. But as of yesterday Godsiff had mustered little support. Indeed the sole signatory was the Liberal Democrat MP for Portsmouth South, Mike Hancock. Hold on, that name rings a bell, doesn't it? Sure does: his researcher, Katia Zatuliveter, was last week arrested after MI5 alleged she has links to Russia's foreign intelligence service, the SVR. Shouldn't this be time to keep your head down, Mike? Keegan haunts Ashley Mike Ashley, the Newcastle United owner, looks like he has learned the lessons of Kevin Keegan's billige fotballdrakter rancorous 13-month battle for compensation after he was constructively dismissed as Newcastle manager in September 2008. That cost Ashley £5.3m _ his itchy trigger finger already having cost him £4.6m upon the enforced departures of Sam Allardyce and his legion of backroom staff. This time, with the League Managers Association's hawkish lawyers standing by, Chris Hughton has sensibly been promised his money within 10 days. Extra time for Argyle Plymouth Argyle and their associated entity, Home Park Properties, face a high court hearing tomorrow over their debts to HM Revenue & Customs. It is expected that the club will be awarded a temporary reprieve with the adjournment of the case for at least seven days to give negotiations over Peter Ridsdale's potential takeover a bit more time. The club, fans and the staff who have recently gone unpaid must keep fingers crossed that all the unsubstantiated talk of Ridsdale's horror over the levels of structural debt is wide of the mark.
