FIFA 10

Love it.

Now, I used to be a MASSIVE Pro Evo fan (from 1999 – 2008) but then Konami got a bit complacent and FIFA stole the march. I was origianlly (way back in the day) a FIFA fan but peer pressure – and superior gameplay  – converted me to Pro Evo. As a student I used to play Pro Evo regularly with mates – including weekly tournaments round my mate Byrnie’s flat. Those were the days. I remember we once had a a tournament where we had 4 x 14″ TV’s, back to back, 5 x PS2’s and one hooked up to the big 42″ screen in the front room. Alongside that, we had a PC running with updated results, tables and standings. It was the ultimate football gaming tournament – and I loved it.

Years have gone since then and times have changed. So has the game.  FIFA 09 re-introduced me to the EA title and I loved it. The gameplay in FIFA is amazing. It allows me to play the game like I would play football in real life – something that gives me an edge over ‘gamers’ who try to play football games.  My online record is pretty good. I have a 60% win ratio. My regular teams tend to be Villa, Manchester City and Arsenal (teams with power and pace).  The best feeling is when I choose Villa and then my oppenent (some German probably) picks Real Madrid/Barca – and I beat them. It doesn’t get better than that.

I own a PS3 copy of the game so give me a shout if you ever fancy a fixture:

The Worst Away End in Football

Wow. I’ve been to some pretty grim away ends in my time – the Manor Ground, the Withdean, The Rec or maybe the scaffolding at Priestfield.

Spare a thought for the visitors to Miejski Klub Sportowy Znicz Pruszków in Poland. Amazing.

Personally, I’d make this the mandatory away end for all Chelsea fans (at every game). Probably doesn’t meet the Taylor Report requirements – but one can dream…
