  1. Thanks for the hard work.

    I imagine the next FIFA ranking period will be a massive nightmare to contend with!

  2. We are waiting expectantly for your WC prediction! It would be great If tou could give the one based on ELO ratings, but also another one based on your own expectations/feeling.

    Best regards,

    Juan

  3. I think the Ziaian football rankings at rankfootball.com is very good. I have been following this site for a while now.
    I have included the link in my name as I don't have my own web page.
