Gianni Torchio

Postby alkis21 » Wed Nov 06, 2013 9:56 pm

I know that anything less than the world cup shield itself is barely worth mentioning, but it needs to be said that Gianni won:

-The top scorer trophy
-The best defense trophy
-The most valuable one of all: The KOA's Lifetime Achievement Award!
Remember, remember, the 4th and the 3rd of November

:D

well in fact the "OMFG can he really eat ALL of that pizza Award" is something that I have to share with someone who helped me :) it was too big indeed!
I was moved to receive the The KOA's Lifetime Achievement Award but I covered well my emotions :)
And I have been very happy to receive both attach and defence trophies but I save words here as I'm going to post my new book on the forum

Rethinking to the world cup, I'm rally grateful to organizers and the KOA to give me the the KOA's Lifetime Achievement Award!
I remember the first time this award was assigned in Athens to Steve, I thought that one day, if I would have received it, I would have cried for the emotion. Well, I didn't cry but it set me completely brain off and I forgot all the things I wanted to say. This was probably a good thing for the wc presents! my speeches are always a mess. maybe I will write something in advance next time! I will prepare something for every possible situation: maybe it could be fun! :D
Anyway, said that my decline is started inexorable. two years ago I was 1st. last year I was 3rd, this year I was 5th. Next year I expect 7th!
I'm getting old, fat and slow! better I start to think to become a Kick Off trainer for my son, mybe one day he will bring back the Holy Shield in Kick Off House!

Some random thought: No doubt who was the rookie of the year (Christopher, of course!) but I'm wondering, who would have received the David Vs Goliath aword this year? and who would have been the revelation of the year? Perhaps Christopher all of the three?
Alkis, you master numbers, have you got any idea?
btw: AUA????????????????????????????????????????????????????

I know what you mean about the LAA, to be perfectly frank I was a little hurt when I didn't get it in 2011. I expected to, but I got over it quickly of course as Mark deserved it no less. And last year in Milan, I thought my chances were zero as we were obviously giving it to Dino. I was so surprised when I eventually got it, obviously Dino's one was considered something else. I think it's more valuable than any trophy won on the green pitch.

Yeah obviously Christopher won them both. Revelation of the year of course, and also David Vs Goliath for beating Andy (more impressive than Lorenzo beating Oliver, I think). It's too bad I didn't ask Michael to have trophies for those, I considered it but I thought that with such a small world cup we wouldn't have any people to give them to. Silly me! Let's bring them back next year!

I am trying to meet a deadline for the magazine, but next week I'll be all over the KOA!
