UEFA contacted me and sorted out the rogue password. Managed to submit my accreditation request before tomorrow's deadline for a handful of the matches in Ukraine. Fingers crossed they will approve my accreditation. It certainly made life easier in Argentina having a press accreditation for the Copa America. Really appreciated how well the Argentine Football Federation treated me and my other friends and colleagues who travelled to South America from Europe to watch the tournament last summer.

Feeling a bit rough today. Went out for dinner with one of my best mates, Rupert, and then a female friend sent me a text persuading me to meet her at a club in Riga. 
A young Latvian lad asked me the way to the city's French bar when I was on my way home, battling a snowstorm. It turned out he hadn't been in Riga for a long time because he's been living in my home city in England. We were laughing at me being from Leicester and living in Riga and him being from Riga and living in Leicester. Crazy world.
Home at four. Mid-week clubbing is never really a clever idea. It was good at the time though...
