For all the "good" that he has done for the game of football, he and FIFA have never been too far away from media criticism as his tenure has been littered with ill advised comments, corruption and more recently the fiasco that is Qatar 2022.
It's almost guaranteed that the run-up to 2022 will be a treacherous minefield of political and social issues. Post-Brazil 2014 will be an ongoing fight for Fifa to regain its credibility and it's not going to be won too easily.
While Sochi 2014 is the immediate concern it is simply the latest charade in an ever growing list of erroneous decisions by sporting committees where the human rights record, inherent poverty and endemic discrimination of a nation have been flagrantly ignored.
I'm really not qualified to go into any real detail on the match in which I have participated. Though I did rip off a few choice phrases from Alan Hansen's Match of the Day punditry, in my youth, and I still wheel them out from time to time.
It is quite rare that I read something and for it to elicit such an emotional response, but when coming across a blog recently accusing the sheer stature of Formula 1 not being considered a sport it was not something I could simply ignore.
If the FA are smart (leave it), as soon as the Paralympics are over with they will leap on this goodwill and use the astonishing efforts of this summer to get everyone fully behind a bid for a World Cup to be played on English turf. Preferably before I am buried six feet beneath it.
