    see Guardian story now linked on home page; supposedly only 50,000 seats sold for the entirety of the WC.

    I'm shocked, I tell you, shocked!

    In 1994, GH wrote a story about the world championships in Doha in 2019? Now that's impressive.

    There could be zero people in the stadium other than Coe and his cronies and he would still call these WCs a huge success. I'd bet the "success stories" have already been written.
