FA Ask FIFA To Postpone Election

The English FA has already told FIFA that they'd be abstaining from the upcoming presidential election due to neither candidate being particularly attractive from the not (allegedly) hideously corrupt standpoint, and recent events have only served to make them even more cranky. As a result, they're leading the call for FIFA to postpone the upcoming presidential election, in which incumbent Sepp Blatter is now the only candidate:

Events of the last few days have reinforced our views, and we call on Fifa and ask other national associations to support us with two initiatives.

First, to postpone the election and give credibility to this process, so any alternative reforming candidate could have the opportunity to stand for president...

At this point, if I were Sepp Blatter, I would respond with: 'In light of the request by the English FA, FIFA will postpone the upcoming Presidential election until June of 2015.' If you're going to be an evil troll, you might as well go whole hog, eh?
