In the spotlight - Rocketassist

Who do you think Should win BBC sport's personality of the year?

Do you think it would be a joke for Hamilton to win the award for essentially driving a car fast, relying on technology as much as skill?

Favourite song of all time?

Do you have any special or unusual talents that we don't know about?

If you couldn't be Scottish, which other country would you like to be a national of?



That'll kick things off. X Factor final is on, so I rushed the questions.

Lewis Hamilton or Chris Hoy. Hope Ohuruogu doesn't win it, when you miss three tests there's always doubts.

Well the Ferrari cars are faster than his McLaren so I think he deserves some credit. McLaren's last F1 champion was Mika Hakkinen in 1999, so it's not like they win every week.

I'm very good at negotiating with people who say no.
I know how to turn a disorganised mess situation around
I continue to have the ability to pay junior prices on national trains simply by using a ticket machine to buy the tickets, despite me being 21.

I'm not actually Scottish I'm from Merseyside, England. The SCO flag is for Muzza

Re: In the spotlight - Rocketassist

1) Which actor would you choose to play you in a movie?

2) What are the best (and worst) aspects of living in Merseyside?

3) How many countries have you visited?

4) What do you dislike about your favorite tennis player?

Re: In the spotlight - Rocketassist

Did you watch X factor? What TV shows do you usually watch?

Which threads of MTF do you lurk in?

How is your football forum going?

Are you upset the spotlight thread is now in the shadow of the ass kissing contest?

1 Not quite sure as there aren't many actors who look like me!

2 The best is the nightlife, it's ace. Liverpool is unbeatable as far as the club/bar scene goes and Birkenhead ain't too bad either on a Friday.

The worst has to be some of the scum that infest the streets especially at night time who lurk playing loud music and asking you to go the shop for them to buy ale.

3 Apart from the UK, France, Spain and Andorra.

4 His tantrums and his refusal to be aggressive at times.

1 Sometimes. The early rounds with the crap singers and farcical performances. I usually watch any football that's on, comedy on Paramount, South Park, Family Guy, and also sitcoms like Friends.

2 yours, the spotlight threads, football zone, occasionally the Nadal chat thread and the ACC/popularity contests.

3 it was my friend's and I helped him run it. It was shut down after disparaging remarks were made about a player and the player's father complained to the authorities.

4 No. No one visits my spotlight thread anyway!

For sure. Yeah we may be his second love to LFC but the goals he scored, the cup exploits, the passion he had for the club, have him near the top of my all-time favourites.

Re: In the spotlight - Rocketassist

1. I notice your disdain for Liverpool FC. Where does this stem from? Is it something that has been passed on through your family?

2. Is there a future for tennis in England in the next 10 years?

3. For or against a roof over centrecourt at Wimbledon?

Re: In the spotlight - Rocketassist

1 Sort of, though it's cause where I live I'm surrounded by their fans and they don't like my team so it's pretty much mutual dislike round here, but only their fans who live here.

2 Umm not while the LTA runs things.

3 For.

Re: In the spotlight - Rocketassist

1- Do you think clay court tennis is inferior to others?

2- Do you think S&V will come back?

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).
