Default What was the best sports year for you?

It was 2008 for me.

Tennis:

Rafael Nadal bagelled and destroyed Roger Federer in Roland Garros final, then beated him again in epic Wimbledon final. Won the gold medal for Spain at Olympics and got the #1 spot from Federer after 5 years. HUGE YEAR.

Basketball:

Boston Celtics won the title after beating rival LA Lakers. What a year that was. I stayed up until the morning and went to high school without any sleep. That was last day of the school and just came back after getting my pass degree. Then slept until the 5-6 PM, celebrated it in my way that evening since that was a huge day. (both my team won the title and that was start of the summer, good old days!)

Football:

My team Galatasaray won the Turkish League after making six wins in a row in the end of the league. We beated our biggest rival Fenerbahce at home and that was great, too. We had small team, Fenerbahce was better quality that time and even made Champions League QFs before losing to Chelsea after a close games. (that was Fenerbahce's best success in Europe) So it's huge when you win the league when your rival at their best!

Also that summer was great too. Usain Bolt was great, Olympics were great, too! Also, there was EURO 2008 in Switzerland & Austria which Spain won at the end. (Fernando Torres with the goal in the final, good old days!) My country Turkey were unbelievable in that tournament! We came back against Switzerland, Czech Republic and Croatia. Just felt short against Germany. (Lahm's 90th minute goal, sigh)

Football : 2006 - the best World Cup I have seen so far, Lyon at his peak winning the French League and who could have maybe won the Champions League (QF lost to Milan after being qualified until the 88th minute).
Tennis : 2009 - Federer winning RG and Wimbledon with some epic matches.
Cycling : 2011 - great Tour de France, nice one day races as well.

2004 because my family and I went to the Euros that year, amazing amazing time

Also 2012 because of the London Olympics and Murrays USO win.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

I hope you all enjoyed Zidane's brace in the stoppage time against England...

Default Re: What was the best sports year for you?

I was/am involved in too many sports so even when it is going great something has to spoil the party so it's really hard to pick one specific year because even when just one occasion goes wrong that isn't that.

If i have to pick entire year i would probably pick one of Fed's peak years when he was winning everything just the problem is that back in the days i didn't know to fully appreciate it because it was somehow normal and expected that he is winning everything. If now 50% of such year repeats i would be over the moon for years

Anyway probably top 3 most emotional moments:

1. Goran winning Wimbledon
2. Fed winning RG
3. Ramos' 90+3 goal


anyway too many to count it

A younger version of myself wanted the Czechs to win that tournament but also cheered when Charisteas thumped that header past Barthez. 2004 was England's best chance at winning an international tournament in my lifetime, with Rooney's potential seemingly limitless. Never again has he played with such freedom, it's a shame but was somewhat inevitable.

No, Norwich's promotion to the Premier League on a tidal wave of last-gasp winners. I also enjoyed 2010, where that surge started and 2012, where I went to victories against Tottenham, Arsenal and Man United. The atmosphere at our ground has lost some of its camaraderie in the years since unfortunately.

2007 was also great because I was a massive Kimi Raikkonen fan, even though he was slightly past his best.
