I applied twice for the WC06, didn't win.
I was going to apply for the EURO08, but decided that I will take my chances at buying tickets through Ukrainian Football Federation.
When I was in Kyiv in the spring we went to see Ukraine vs Costa Rica. My father's friend company is building within the stadium grounds. Right where the team comes out of the locker room. So any ways. Talked to his friend who told me that FFU had so many ticket that were not bought out that if I wanted some I could have them. To bad I couldn't use them, my vacation was almost over. But he said that for EURO only talk to him, and the tickets where about 3rd cheaper then through regular channels.
Got to meet Blokhin that day, we were both going up in the private elevator. It was funny, I was already little drunk. We were sitting in the VIP box, with director of Respublikanskiy stadium (if I remember correct Sergiy Sergievych), and me had a few to many drinks. All I could tell Blokih is that my dad named me after him when they won the European CUP in '75. Blokhin smiled and told me to tell my dad thanks
Met Bal', really nice guy. Talked to Tolik Tymoschuk, the only guy who could talk Ukrainian there. Nesmachniy is a really nice guy.
I didn't really like how Rebrov or Sasho presented themselves, they seemed kind of full of themselves.
