Unless I'm reading it wrong, it looked like rva was writing the last few entries as they happened, which make them all the more heartbreaking / interesting.  That was always the way I preferred writing, keeps everything fresh and allows you to inject things with more feeling since the emotions are still fresh.

But yeah, that was kinda rough reading.  Even after reading the last 2 entries about Southampton's later success.

Great stuff.

One of my friends sent me this wikipedia entry on Marquinhos today:

"Marquinhos has come to prominence in the popular video game 'Football Manager 2009', where he becomes an incredible player when played regularly in the chosen first team. This has led to many people expecting the same in real life. He is also known for his incredible pace, his bamboozling tricks and his ability to make chances out of nothing."

The entertaining thing about re-reading this thread, other than how much RVA hates Gerrard, is how many times he says something along the lines of "that was two points we failed to capitalize on that are probably going to come back to haunt us at the end of the season."


Clairvoyance at its finest!

I'm bumping this for no reason other than it's still one of my favorite threads of all time. And the writing is excellent. Especially the part in Russia

(btw, that club now no longer exists)

I agree, Dan. Maybe RVA could take over for Poch...

I hadn't seen this thread before. All I can say is: wow.

I love the kind of dystopian, post-2013 ending where he gets everything he ever dreamed of but not before all his dreams had already been shattered.

And now I have a massive urge to play XCOM.
