Even if you miraculously only bought exactly enough packs to get enough stickers to complete the album you're still looking at over 106.  For something aimed primarily at kids thats a disgrace, and i'm having no part of it.

I'm going to put the money towards something sensible and worthwhile, like Infinity War Lego sets...

Some boffin has worked out the full cost of completing the album.

I worked it out for the Brasil 2014 one, and the probability of filling it without swaps was ridiculous.  You effectively couldnt guarantee ever doing it.  Thats why it works for kids at school where everyone is doing it, but unless i'm massively out of touch on how much pocket money kids get then they simply won't be able to afford it.

Panini have blamed the increase on licensing costs from individual associations, which given i didnt think the last one had official branding and logos for all teams surprised me as to why they felt it neccesary to pay this time.

Just another example of football disappearing up its own arse.

The Brazil one did if I remember right, apart from England as another company were doing an England one, was only for the Euros in 2016 that Panini got an official license for the FA

I've used that site as well, it's pretty much the same, between 3 and 4 weeks, the seller normally gives you a tracking number once its been shipped.

Reckon I've bought at least a dozen kits and training trackies from there and I've never had any problems, they've all been spot on.

No British referees picked for the world cup pretty much sums up the standard we're subjected too each week.

There's a Russian guy in our hostel (formerly homeless), who was in the Soviet Army in Afghanistan and he's a serious fella, but he's endlessly fascinating. I'm constantly asking about his life and experiences.

His opinion is that the World Cup will be absolutely fine, as long as people going to Russia are respectful and clued up. His basic advice is, never, ever fuck with any police or 'officials', under any circumstances. And then in terms of the normal Russian populace, he stresses that people are very proud and very keen to entertain guests. So the hospitality will be excellent, but that visitors need to be respectful of their hosts. Anyone that comes into the country with the typical 'I'm gonna get fucked up and fuck shit up' attitude will be in for a rude awakening.

I'd fucking love to go to Russia personally, but won't be able to afford it this summer. Definitely on the to-do list eventually.
