Happy birthday and have a nice day


1 The most high quality of the three was Soderling's performance but my favourite result was Murray-Djoker. It's a hard one to call Probably for tennis reasons the first one

2 First heard of Wimbledon on the radio in 1996, first watched it in 1997. Didn't have Sky then so we only got Wimbledon coverage. Only when I got Sky a few years later was I able to watch the other slams and tournaments

3 that's a tough one. I always reply with sarcasm in GM to this one, but overall the best quality stuff I saw was probably Safin vs Agassi at the 2004 Australian Open or Safin vs Federer a year later, an edge to the former.

4 For Murray easily US Open SF 2008 against Nadal. Also nowadays probably Federer as I enjoy that match-up, although he always plays more explosively against Nadal. For Soderling the answer is pretty obvious (09 RG and Nadal for opponent) and for Nalbandian it's the 2005 TMC final, with Federer the answer

5 when I was a nipper and I had Titus the Fox and Castle Master, using MS-DOS to open them up I was about four or five at the time

6 Djokovic. He used to get on my nerves a lot during the 'Fakervic' period when he had all the fingers pointing at him but nowadays I'm pretty neutral to the guy.

7 I used to party a lot for it and have a big get together with friends, but at 26 I'm not so sure about that now

thanks anyway

I admire Diego though, he's always been a character. Not a coach though that's for sure!

That's SUCH a tough one to call. I'd say Henry just, for the reason he managed to win the biggest prizes at international level as well as club level although Ronaldo has time.

That being said the best season either player has had was Ronaldo's 2007-08- not seen anything Messi-aside as good as that.

1 Leyton Orient (for topical reasons)
2 Portsmouth get good gates given their inevitable predicament
3 In terms of numbers, Sheffield Utd. In terms of quality, us
4 Schalke against Hannover (5-4) in the Bundesliga the other week

1 In terms of overall tennis enjoyment, Wimbledon 2001 for sure. The unpredictability, the story, the tennis was great too. Sampras-Federer, Henman-Federer, Ivanisevic-Safin, Ivanisevic-Henman, Agassi-Rafter and the people's final made it one of the great sporting moments. AO 2005 and RG 2009 not far behind, due to Safin's phenomenal play throughout. Aside from the nervy first set against Hewitt, he was unplayable. RG 09 gets third for the unpredictability factor after Soderling's upset. You had no idea who would win, as Fed limped his way past Haas and Delpo.

In terms of the result, the USO just gone although obviously it wasn't the best tennis spectacle, after eight years of following/supporting a player it was great to see him cross the finish line no matter how it came about. I was happy for Roger to win the Career Slam in 2009, and the same for Agassi in 1999 (although it's not the 00s).

Best slam in terms of tennis enjoyment:

1 Wimbledon 2001
2 Australian Open 2005
3 Roland Garros 2009

Best slam result/outcome:

1 US Open 2012
2 Roland Garros 1999
3 Roland Garros 2009



2 Mario had great potentially especially on grass- he had the serve, the movement, strong strokes and excellent volleys, better than Berdych and Soderling's. He'd have had a Tsonga-like career on grass and been a real tough customer at the USO as well.

Injuries, and a good opposition who have been playing very well. Their bench pisses over ours, and their budget's £4m compared to our £1.4m. We're doing superbly well to be above teams like them at this stage.

Di Canio gets a lot of press and praise but he's just a chequebook manager. When he goes behind in a game his record is shit. In the Championship I reckon his 'methods' would be found out.

Agree. I didn't get to watch him too much at Lazio because I was too young. Watched a lot of videos of that team though, apart from Pavel there were some fantastic players, Veron, Nesta, Almeyda, Sinisa Mijahlovic, Crespo, Poborsky, etc. And Erickson was a great coach.

At Juve he was a beast. The most complete player I saw at his peak. And yes, despite he won the Ballon D'or very under-rated player. That yellow card against Real was a disgrace, one of the saddest moments in football.
