Which KO2 video has most views? (and it's in The Guardian!)

It could be any of these three works of art... :)










... but it isn't. It's Dagh's 'The Heat is On', now with 30,000+ hits!!!!!

Whoever put this clip together should be knighted.



It's KO2 awesomeness is not only appreciated by us but by journalist, Rob Smyth, in one of his WC reports, who writes for The Guardian, a national broadsheet newspaper. This obviously exposed the video to a much wider audience. Anyway, here's what the writer had to say...

Now, I don't know about you, but I spent the weekend craving something that I have not experienced for far too long; something visceral, sensual and mind-altering. That's right: a game of Kick Off 2. The subject came up during Friday's MBM, when somebody pointed out that the match was being refereed by Steve Screech. The real Steve Screech even emailed in.

Steve Screech, eh? Bloody hell. When I'm old and doddery and can't even remember my own name or which direction I'm supposed to point that thing in, I'll still know who Steve Screech was, still remember the time he sent off four of my men for little more than overzealous breathing on a wet pitch. Mention of Screech prompted a delirious sensory overload of Kick Off 2 memories, from the dubious joys of pulling muscles all over your body while trying to impart sufficient aftertouch to the jumping-on-the-spot celebration to the throatlump-inducing endeavour of H.H. "Happy Happy" Day. One of my mates at uni could even go round the keeper, which used to drive me mad.
Please tell me I'm not the only one who feels like this. Please.



With that kind of passion, he might be willing to give publicity to other KOA events?

Quite a claim to fame for a certain Danish KOA'er imo. REINSTATE SIR DAGH FFS! :)

Excellent read, too. It really kicked off (harhar) with someone writing in about the match between Germany and Serbia (lots of cards): "You don't need language abuse to evoke your youth, as Michael Carey proves with this wonderfully uplifting email: "Has FIFA looted S.Screech from Kick Off 2 and given him a new name for this game?" I haven't thought of the name S Screech for maybe 10 or 12 years, and now I have a big stupid grin on my face at the thought of him reducing me to six men for an errant slide tackle on a wet pitch."

Also, I checked the link on dear Mr Screech provided pointing to mobygames.com:

Photo taken from?.... "The Aftertouch Magazine Issue 4". Including a link to the issue for the interview. Nicely done, Alki!
