Han has authored a couple of books with a couple of his mates and I was chuffed that he brought with him copies of both of these books.
The top picture shows the cover of the book that came out last year and which chronicles the last 20 years of Metalist history from when the Ukrainian League was formed after the formation of the republic and the break up of the Soviet Union. It really is a meticulous piece of research and apart from the statistics and stories the photographs offer an interesting look back, not least of all at how far the Metalist stadium has been developed over the years.
The second cover shows a book that chronicles and has reports on every match that Metalist has played in Europe up to just before the Newcastle match.
