Gianni Infantino is the favorite for me, his boss was Michel Platini so of course we know that someone like that would be very keen to reform fifa.... He is the establishment of fifa and is a safe bet to finish first. Tokyo Sexwale would win if it was best names. Jérôme Champagne no chance hes been out of the game 2 long at fifa. Prince Ali Hussein the most likely to reform fifa but with that comes a lot of people at fifa who wouldnt want him to reform fifa so I am guessing he falls just short and finishes runner up. Salman Bin Ibrahim Al-Khalifa, 3rd place the Ted Cruz of fifa will he win asia(evangelicals) probably can he win anywhere else not a chance. Hopefully Hussein wins but the smart bet is on the establishment its fifa they dont want change no matter how much they need.

what is your guys take on the new Fifa President hire? I have never heard of Infantino or anything he has done in the past but my first take on him was that he genuinly wants to help scrub Fifas image and change it for the better. This is just an opinion though as I have nothing to back it up with but what do you guys have on him from the past? Good hire or bad hire?

I find it interesting that we sent Garber to do the official vote. I fully realize Gulati isn't allowed due to his previous status with FIFA but if ussoccer wanted to distance itself from the view that MLS and ussoccer are one, this wasn't helpful.

I have Italian heritage so I have no problem saying this.

When there is corruption scandals going around, how do you turn to someone from the one european country that is known for bribery, corruption, mafia issues. Seems like a very odd choice.
