I think, that I will read it in English this time, because there will pass some time since it will come out in German or Italian. I don’t want to wait more than necessary. Best wishes Christel Hi Declan, it’s now some time that I am waiting for your new book. I think, that I will read it in English this time, because there will pass some time since it will come out in German or Italian. I don’t want to wait more than necessary. Best wishes

However for some reason the book can't be found in any Aussie bookstore (and I was surprised as you had been here a little while ago). Btw is a Greek translation on the cards? For some reason despite match fixing being the normal in Greece there had been NO arrests made, nor any allegations, maybe they know how to cover their tracks there! :) While I knew beforehand what is described in the book, I found it a really good read that explains to someone who has no idea about the betting world what’s going on in the World of football.

Italian or English it is very encouraging to receive. As for your blog have you come across the work of Carlo Petrini, 'Nel Fango Del Dio Pallone'? As an ex-Serie A player, he has a lot of information about fixing in the Italian league. Ciao a presto y grazie, Declan Dear Anto,

Then, i tried to collect news mostly about italians scandal since 1980 to now in a blog (unfortunately it's my first blog, so i don't have a chronological) and it's so impressive to note like almost every year there is a scandal..... Now, im writing you because i've read about abnormal betting in Italy about next football matches on saturday-sundey in Serie A-B (this news is from a site of an italian internet newspaper and it talks about "X" in these matches : Chievo-Parma,Modena-Piacenza, Triestina-Padova, Reggina-Torino ) I'm trying to make to know your book in my blog (it's only in italian, and if you want i can tell you my adress site, but i imagine you needn't of informations or collection of italians articles), but you were right, after that i read your book, all is diferent. And when some weeks ago, i found an article of 20 november 2009 about suspected on Ghana-Brasile, i felt a shiver down my back. (the page is http://www.corriere.it/sport/09_novembre_20/partite_scommesse_champions_europa_calcio_86a0a88e-d5d7-11de-a0b4-00144f02aabc.shtml ) Really im surprised about your danger job, about your great courage and perseverance, when i talk with my friends about this investigation, i m really excited to talk about these things, because i imagine what you had to do to, behind your book. Well, my english is a little poor (i should study it a little...) but i hope you can understand something! I'd like to write more and more thoughts (but maybe for the setting of the blog it's better so!). I want to finish with few thoughts in italian language. Complimenti davvero, apprezzo molto il tuo lavoro (come ti ho detto di aver apprezzato molto Saviano, un ragazzo che per scrivere un libro come Gomorra, ha praticamente rinunciato ad avere una sua vita personale). Quando in questo mondo pensiamo a delle persone coraggiose, dovremmo ricordarci un po' più spesso di questi giornalisti come te che per amore della verità, rischiano in prima persona in territori molto pericolosi, territori geografici come l' Iraq, l'Afganisthan, il Kosovo o territori misteriosi come la mafia, la camorra, ecc. I salut you and i tell you only thanks for everything you do and take care of yourself always. Ciao, Anto. Hello again dear Declan.

I have refrained from posting a new blog for the past few months. But will be coming out with new information in the next month! In the meantime, good luck with your facebook page against match-fixing. I encourage everyone to join it! Best regards, Declan Dear Christel,

Feel free in the future to write in Italian, I may not be able to respond particularly well, but I can understand. I also have read 'Gomorra' and am big fan. I saw Roberto Saviano speak at Oxford and was impressed by him. However, do not despair. We are winning this war. Slowly, other people agencies are starting to take the threat seriously. There will always people who would rather step on the whistleblower or try to silence the messenger. But this is one campaign that we will win. Take heart and as my Irish relatives used to say, 'Keep the Faith and Never Give Up'! Lots of good wishes, Declan Dear Anto,

I'm finishing to read your book (Calcio Mafia in italian edition), and i'm very interested to read and understand your news. I don't know if you know the italian book "Gomorra", i imagine yes, and your book remember me this other book inquiry. I'm trying to talk about your book on italian site (like site about sports news, or forum or other things), i'd like to make to know all your great job. I work for my state, in the public administration (tax office) and to know there are people like you that want to discover the truth it's a relief for my soul. I don't know english people, but i'd like to see in italian people indignation and not resignation (like a member has written above, about Berlusconi). Sorry for my english, i hope you've understood what i wanted to say. For now, thanks again for you big job, i'm going to finish the book (now i'm at the chapter about Appiah). Best regards Anto Dear Mister Declan Hill
