I have pseudo-addictive personality and can become addicted to different things overnight. This happened in 2004, I woke up one morning and became obssessed with football.
Like all British children I used to play football constantly when I was in primary school, but had fallen out of love with the game when I hit secondary school. When I rediscovered the joy of football in 2004, I was 18 and on my way to university. I quickly set up my own 5-a-side team, “Could be worse, Could be Boumsong!” and my own 11-a-side team, “Clockwork Orange FC” and had matches 3 times a week.
I was well known at Warwick Uni’s sports centre for monopolising the football pitches (I worked out that I had booked £14,000 worth of pitches in my 3 years at uni). Needless to say, I improved at football dramatically over my time and carried on my interest in playing to the working world.
Flash forward to 2008, I was playing football with work vs. one of our sister companies. In the final minute of the game I chased down a ball, a lot like Carlos Tevez would do…a guy on the opposite team clattered into me snapping my Collarbone in two.
I was out of action for about 3 months, and after that I seemingly lost a lot of interest in football. This was particularly annoying as I had just purchased some new football boots from Germany, adidas Fußballschuhe
Now that it’s nearing 2011, I look back on my football days and am kinda glad the injury happened. It’s forced me to go to the gym, which is something I’d never done before…
I guess the major downside is you can’t score spectacular goals on a treadmill.
Let me leave you with a clip of one of the guys in my team scoring a volley in the most epic match Clockwork Orange FC had in 2007:

I need to settle something, here and now. Fifa is far greater than Pro Evo.
I can’t understand how anyone can still think Pro Evo is better than Fifa. Reviewers all across the globe have stated that Fifa 09 basically battered Pro Evo 2009, and it looks like the same thing will happen with Fifa 10 and Pro Evo 2010.
For years, Fifa has been the most polished football game on the planet, although suspect gameplay led fanboys to join the Pro Evo bandwagon. Not me though, I always knew FIFA was the best, ever since Fifa international soccer special addition on the PC with added commentary back in 1994.
I’m just glad the day of reckoning came where it was conclusive FIFA was better than Pro Evo. Anyone who still believes otherwise is simply crazy. All my friends who were staunch Pro Evo fans have now made the switch. There are a couple of people at my work though that still insist Pro is better!
