Hi,

Very brief summary of my first KO2 World Cup.

I can say on behalf of myself and my bro's Olly and Charley Awesome!

Met some really great people, played some truly amazing players and watched a brilliant new champion crowned.

The only big disappointment was Lee's filthy lobbing ;)

Seriously though we had a fantastic time and hope to see some of you in the UK championships

Take care

Luke D
Rank 29th KO2WC2015
Scotlands No.1 player...lol

Two weeks ago we were all together and now it seems so far again. 50 weeks to next Christmas, damn! I need to invent something to kill the time. Probably to work or grow up kids could help a lot!

I don't want to write the usual book with billions of words in a shaky English, this time I want to try the Illustrated book format.


This World Cup starts with a personal T-Shirt designed by Mary. Theme of course is Ireland from the fun side: Green grass, lovely sheep and of course the Kick Off 2 ball. A worthy way to celebrate the upcoming world cup. I couldn't figure out that we had many other t-shirt to wear then, thanks to Kick Off Revival and Dino! thanks!

Michael wins KOA FACE Award 2015, I'm used to price the first KOA face I see in a world cup. I met him at the airport, together with his lovely wife Regina. They joined the italian gang and we visited Dublin together.
Image


Group picture. among the KOA faces you see there is an outsider, he is Lapo, a friend of my family, he isn't a kick off player but he loves the koa spirit, he went also in Milan 2012. as said On Friday night Regina and Michael were speaking a very fluent Italian.
Image


Trinity College, you could smell history there. everywhere.
Image


Like above, but here the smell was less metaphoric and more real... I was looking for "the aftertouch" but I didn't find it. unluckily.
Image


Next time I'll go at the Irish pub in Milan, I will not dare to call it Irish pub again. Pub will be enough... You can call it "Irish" just only if you are in Ireland.
Image


Once the receptionist gave me the key of my room, I immediately got that there were no doubts about my position in the final standing. Next time I will ask for the 111.
Image


I was so glad to see Robert again that it seemed to me he was shedding light from inside.
Image


The Chocolate Factory. A venue that proved to have character.
Image


The Spirit of Football
Image


The Spirit of KOA
Image


Although it doesn't seem so, everyone is smiling in this picture!
Image


My favourite players, a pleasure and an honour to play with them!
Image


The new Kick Off 2 World Champion!
Image


Alessandro the friendly bastard and Fabio, the bastardly bastard. Just try to wisper the name "Fabio" in Copenhagen. Vikings are still terrified. now.
Image


On monday we did a lovely excursion, we went to Howth, in front of Dublin bay, a lovely place.
Image


Once at home I eventually realized that my double digit defeat in the final was just a nasty trick, luckily my loved Holy Shield was safe at home waiting for me, together with the Guardians Bud & Terence looking after her... :)

If you missed the world cup and if you are missing the world cup, here you are my album.
I'm come back to my old standard so a LOAD of pictures. Hope I caught every single player and all the NPC that joined the fun.
Enjoy!

I think I have some photos somewhere.

Gianni, how did you get in the Library at Trinity College without anyone else there? I tried to get a decent photo but it was full of bloody tourists taking pictures.*


*Note, deliberate irony

How's you elbow?

I just remembered a funny and very sympathetic saying from Mr. Screech himself.
We were about to play our game and I was like:

Me: Hi Steve, how're you doing?

St: (made an apropriate facial expression) Nah... mid table.

Me: Erm, Steve, I meant life.

St: (made an even more apropriate facial expression) Nah... mid table.
