i was tagged by the my dear orestisskarnezis :)) thanks!!
1. What got you into football?
honestly, i came into football properly in 1998 because of that Nike add with the Brazilian players. i was so attracted to Ronaldo, that i decided to watch football to see him more. the WC changed my life forever, because i fell in love with some pretty amazing football
2. Who is your favorite football player based on skill?
currently: Sergio Busquets. overall…Kluivert <3
3. Who is your favorite football player based on looks?
right now Mats Hummels.
4. What would you do if you saw your favorite footballer in front of you?
this actually happened. when i was in Barcelona in 2012, FCB and I departed off the same El Prat terminal and while i was waiting for boarding to start, the entire fucking squad walked past me. i was 10 feet away from Busquets, Xavi, Pique, etc. wearing a huge Barca tote and a cute Simpson!Barca top and i basically dissolved into tears. literal shaking and crying. couldn’t get my shit together to take my camera out for a pic. but Pep looked me in the eye and smiled at me… (and then they flew to London, lost to Chelsea and it all went to shit)
5. Who is the best footballer ever?
probably Messi. but i tell you, Ronaldo in his day was stupendous.
6. Who is your favorite goalkeeper?
Victor Valdes. besides the gigantic hyperventilating-on-sight-thereof crush i had on him for a while, i value him a lot as a keeper and wish he wasn’t a stubborn too proud idiot and just accepted to stay after that leg injury…
7. What NT and FC do you support?
NT: i don’t even know anymore. Portugal used to have a special place in my heart, but i seemed to have weaned myself off them. i suppose Germany is slowly finding their place in my heart.
clubwise, it’s Barça. eternally and unconditionally cule.
8. If you could add five of your favorite players in your favorite nt/fc who would it be?
for Barca, i’d want Mats Hummels and Victor Valdes. i don’t care if VV choice seems like cheating on the question. in the current set up, i don’t think anyone else would fit, but for extra flavour, bring back Zlatan and Bojan.
9. Do you like any other sport?
not anymore. used to like F1 and Motoracing in my teen years, but lost interest a long time ago.
