A 1998 World Cup Preview

You may or may not be aware that, when I am on a late shift at work, everything goes a bit haywire on here. I don’t normally get home until about 9.30, and then I’m not always of sufficient bonhomie to put something up on here. With that in mind, here’s Baker & Kelly’s 1998...
