I thought one of the stumbling blocks is that we don't have enough hotels for these major events as well.
That's only wishful thinking on my part, and yes I think the hotels were a big issue. Maybe they haven't asked but presumed we had a bus station!! Mind you, although we know how painfully slow these projects can be to come off in this neck of the woods, it doesn't seem at all unrealistic that the new bus station couldn't be achieved in just under 2years. I know we always seem to make comparisons with chinese developments but if it was their bid (yes I know unlikely for this european cup!) They'd show a patch of land - Construct a stadium - hotels - advanced transport systems and what the heck, a city to surround it! in this timeframe!!
Still it'll be great to just have it confirmed tomorrow, and any additional already planned developments - accelerated, that may accompany it would just be a bonus.
