Eight in the morning. I am at Manchester Victoria station, waiting for a connection.
It's raining, believe it or not...
I'm just finishing off the English section of Foul Play 5. The rest of it is set in Italy, where I'm going in the summer.
And I've just thought of the title: OWN GOAL.
Kofi Danquah (from Off Side) has just put one in the back of his own net. But the title fits the book in more ways than that. Stuff to do with an Italian media mogul that I can't divulge yet.
In the cafe they are showing highlights Ireland beating Algeria last night. Good news for England?
It is nearly time...
