Beauty is mysterious as well as terrible. God and devil are fighting there, and the battlefield is the heart of man.

Always preferred Tolstoy myself.

In my opinion Boniek had better ball control.

He was a bloody awful writer though.

He’s the head of the Polish FA now. Old school.

Old Fyodor should get up out of his grave and write a book on Putin’s Russia.

I’d suggest something like “Crime and No Punishment (as long as you’re mates with Vlad)” as a title.

You know we were talking earlier about Dostoyevsky?
Oh, yeah?
Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoyevsky. Born 1821. Died 1881. Just interested in him being exiled in Siberia for four years.

Notes From The Underground is a wonderful read for people who love trains. I love the chapter where Fyodor does a full lap of the Circle Line.

I can see Michael Portillo using the book as the basis for his next series of Great Railway Journeys.


Did Portillo ever do the trans siberian? That would make a wonderful series

All is forgiven
