Postby alkis21 » Fri Nov 30, 2001 1:05 am

I spent some time browsing the old forum and some of this forum's pre-Dartford posts. Some of the posts I found were really interesting:

Robert: If you give me space and half a second I can score from anywhere in your half
Robert2:Please can you add J Lockerbie to the definites. I am looking forward to defeating him in the final.

Nazim: And a quick shout out to Simon Butt - I only have a habit of diving because you my friend have habit of fouling- and long may it continue!

Steve C:Us Atari boys are going to get a kicking in the tournament if we don't practice the Amiga version

Alkis:After carefully reading your posts, I'd like to say one more time that you boys are going down.. down,down down..tadadatadadada..
James:Oh dear after a posting like that what are you going to look and feel like if you loose a game !!! hehehe Come on alkis21 we are talking football here and it is so unpredictable...
Alkis:James, there's no such thing as "unpredictable" when I'm behind an Amiga joystick.. you can bet your money on me mate!

Steve (to Vasilis):Next years gathering could be held in Greece, it's open for debate. If this years tournament is won by an Italian though there will be a good reason to hold it in Italy though, so just hope Alkis Polyrakis wins it for Greece.

Danny: I played at 100% speed today and it was alien to me.I'm gonna suck at ko in Dartford

Andy: I've been a bit worried about how I'll compare with all the other players but that's the beauty of this tournament, a lot of us have been learning the art of KO2 alone, now for the first time we will see how good we really are.

Niels:The trashers play hard, intelligent style of football. And expect no mercy when you enter the field of hell in our stadium. The trashers strike when you are asleep like Freddie Kruger in the night. Many victorious goals are passed in the last minutes.

Ely:One Goal is all I ask. Okay maybe One Win.
Also, people willing to stand in front of my Video Camera to get interviewed before and after matches and in general. Okay guys ??

Alkis:
Bad news people.. I'm coming to the tournament and that's final. Now don't do anything rush, don't cancel your trip, you promised to Steve! I know you're all afraid of me, but nobody ever died from humiliation (some of my opponents are still in a comma since 1990, though..).
My strongest point in Kick Off 2 is that I have yet to find someone as good as me in the air. Even players who were on the same level with me could almost never get the original header after the kick off, which resulted to more attacks for me.
My weak point is that I make a lot of fouls, thus I have problems with strict referees.
My main opponent these days is KOA member Apostolos Terlis, who has been my friend roughly since Noah's ark grounded on Mount Ararat.
3 hours before takeoff:
All the world's a stage.. and I'm scared like hell.
I spent a few hours today practising, then I printed all the papers we'll need about the drawing and the complete schedule. I also made 40 copies of the tournament rules, so everyone will have one. I did several test drawings and random results of the entire tournament, and I think I've done no mistakes, and neither has Filippo. It works pretty well.
I'm leaving in a few hours, and suddenly I don't feel so sure about myself anymore. I know it's just a game and meeting you guys should be all I need, but I have this weird fear that I will suck at what has been a life dream for me.
Anyway.. I'm leaving in a few hours. Have a nice trip everybody. This is Alkis, signing off.

And FINALLY.. THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE OF MY POSTS:

I have to warn everyone that I'm a very unpleasant player. Not only do I score from long halfway line lobs all the time, I have the tendency to do it at injury times.

There,can't say I hadn't warned you! I told you you wouldn't like my gameplay!

Hey, you two should try sleeping at night ! It's a luxury that I no longer enjoy, with a screaming baby at 4am most nights. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_cry.gif">

Nice collection of posts there Alkis. Some accurate predictions, and some no so good. I think my tip for Atari players should have been heeded a bit more.

Alkis you are too cruel <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

Anyhow, the International Skill level players are not good enough to score from anywhere - their shooting is too low. But maybe if I was using my own teams......

Is that so Robert? Nah...that flashback was funny. I'll only talk about my skills in the green fields of KO2 from now on. Don't give holds to this Greek menace! <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">
