Back in January, I sent an email to 200 people asking them to pay me £200. Don’t worry. It wasn’t a scam. I could never claim to be a Nigerian prince.

The World Cup starts tomorrow. It’s a thriller. Russia vs Saudi Arabia at 4pm. Even worse, it’s on ITV. If you’re a sensible businessperson, you won’t be bunking off early to watch the silky skills of Taisir al-Jassim and Alexsandr Samedov. Because you’ll know that it’s been 20 years since the last good World Cup. […]
