Buffon's had a great career. One of the best goalkeepers of all time and a true champion. I still remember watching his debut for Parma as a 17-year old against Milan on Channel 4's Football Italia.

These World Cup play-offs are gripping stuff. Including the two intercontinental match-ups we've now had six 0-0 draws, two 1-0's and a single 4-1 blowout. That's an average of 0.78 goals per match. Jose Mourinho's bus parking manual is turning out to be very popular.

Cheek. Looks like I'll be too late for the 2018 World Cup - the first draft will be complete this month, but then there's editing and other bollocks. Either I'll aim for the 2018 afterglow or maybe 2022. :wink:

Is the main theme of the book still the 2003 Busan I'cons season, or has the scope widened significantly? It'll be the end of an era when it finally does appear.

Still the former.

South Korea drawn into Group F with Germany, Mexico and Sweden.

Argh, I was hoping they'd go into Group G with England. Toward the end of the draw, with only three balls remaining, there was a one-in-three chance. Oh well.

If you write the book in German (or Swedish) I will personally buy a copy. :read2:
