the author has a dodgy unpronounceable name.
It's not unpronounceable, it's just Polish. I'm sure Alex H would be able to pronounce it perfectly.

Any first name that scores highly on the scrabble board is a bit iffy if you ask me. Do you get a moneyback guarantee within 7 days if not satisfied?

Quite. I think it's pronounced approximately "Vo-check", which seems quite appropriate for a chess writer.

You can listen re the first name of the Juventus, and former Arsenal, goalkeeper wiki

He spent 8 years in England, so you'd have thought some would know how to pronounce his name :roll:

"He spent 8 years in England..."

That begs the question -

Where has anyone spent the last 8 years?

The answer to that may help explain their attitudes.

Its a fairly bog standard cover to me, FWIW.

Excuse me but that's actually an attempt at humour. If you wish to make a point, do you think you could do so in less offensive terms?
