Answers to frequent questions/comments - will update if needed.

1. Who are you?

My name is Eduard R─ânghiuc. I'm a Christian, husband and father of three. I'm also a programmer. Born in 1981 in Iasi, Romania (this means I'm not Dutch) - still living here.
Dutchman Ed joined the blog as an author in March 2018 after many, many years of providing extremely useful comments.

2. Do you have a Facebook account?

No. I do use Twitter though: @FootballRanks. You can also find me on LinkedIn.

3. How many points would team X have in the FIFA ranking if... ?

Feel free to use FIFA's ranking prognosis tool to get an answer.
You can also post a comment with your question - I happen to have some very knowledgeable readers that will answer your question faster than me.

4. I want to see where my team is ranked in the UEFA National Coefficient after the last matches and I can't wait until Friday.

There are several sites on the internet posting updates. Also, see the last part of the previous answer.

5. Your probable results are wrong/laughable etc.

They are based on the Elo ratings not on personal opinion.

6. Send me an e-mail when you post something new or reply to my comment.

It would be better to subscribe to the posts and comments feed to keep track of when/what I write.

7. Do you work for FIFA?

No, I don't and I don't expect they will make an offer any time soon.

8. Did you ever receive money to help a team climb in the ranking?

Yes - from Amplistan.

9. Could you post updates more frequently?

No, I only post articles, reply to comments on Friday. I do have a job and a family - the blog is just a hobby.

10. How much money does this blog bring you?

The ads you see on my blog are displayed for free - so I make no money from my blog. See also question 8.

11. I represent a betting company and we could offer you a nice sum of money to display some of our ads.

Thanks, I have to pass as it would go against my Christian faith.

12. I have a sport related site, how about a link exchange? It will increase the number of visits you get etc.

I get enough visits and I have a policy - I won't post a link to your page if I don't visit it regularly.

13. I have a domain for sale - it's an amazing opportunity to expand your online footprint.

What is that? No, thanks.

14. Why don't you rate Botswana? (replace with other team if needed)

It's not about me rating a team or not. There's a formula behind the rankings.

15. I don't like you.

That's OK.
