    Hey Neal, I saw in your profile you wrote a book on the 2010 world cup. Can you give me a brief overview on the content? I don't suppose it's available here in the states, is it?

    I actually can't find it, I think you may have to be a certain level of contributor to do them, which is a shame.

    I've just been looking at your live commentary of the Champions League matches, how do you set the commentary up so it updates automatically?

    I'm sorry that some of your article haven't received the prominence that they deserve, but I, personally, am not responsible for where they are posted. I would help you if I could, but there is nothing that I am able to do. Sorry that I can't be of any help,

    Some of them might not be getting enough time in the front page and World Cup page rotation for my liking, but remember your efforts are not going unappreciated on this less football-crazy side of the Atlantic.

    Cheers, Neal, and keep it coming.
