A Life Too Short by Ronald Reng

Great insight into the lives of some players but it's honestly depressing even to read.

Metal Gear Solid. And I've played very little of Halo, Uncharted and Assassins Creed

I would just stop playing games altogether. But I guess Fifa would be my choice.

This may sound completely crazy but I have never even thought about what language you think ideas in if you are bilingual. What if you're deaf?

P.S I admire your courage.

The Uncharted Series and Assassins Creed 2 for me

There needs to be drastic redevelopments at youth level before any senior team are successful at a major tournament again. I have no doubt that the FA are at least trying to address some of the issues but it will take a while before the emphasis is on a passing game.

I don't understand it, but then again, I don't know much about football.

On the one hand we have one of, if not the greatest league in the world (it's at least presented that way), how can we not be a top side? Do people outside the UK think that the Premier League is the best league in the world?

Our team seems like a mess, but is that to do with the amazing lack of trust the entire country shows towards the team, or just genuinely the team/managers aren't up to it?

There are a few reasons for this. Firstly, one of the reasons why the Premier League is considered the greatest in the world is due to excitement levels. End to end matches and constant attacking are what makes the premier league great rather than Italian or Spanish leagues where it tends to be slower-paced and more based on building up passing moves. International matches are always more similar to this style and the PL philosophy that we can squander possession means we get caught out.

Also, many of the best PL players over the years haven't been English (Henry, Cantona, Di Canio, Drogba, Torres, Viera etc). So while some English layers stand out many are simply there for the industry and hard work rather than being technically better footballers. English PL =/= English players.

Also we have (especially last 10 years) had a team capable of doing brilliantly but just simply haven't performed to their potential. What that comes down to I don't even think the players could tell you.

About C was the longest but I usually try and keep it a bit longer than B.

Just thought it looked alright and I guess I could never be bothered to get around to getting it cut. Didn't really like it to be honest; was frustrating to keep it in style and made playing sports pretty much impossible.

Star wars 1313

Halo 4

Tomb Raider

Need for Speed: Most Wanted

Borderlands 2

I guess the last two I was just interested in anyway but I wasn't completely sure about them beforehand
