    Q1-What place do you call home and what is your spiritual home?

    I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada (as many of you know). I’ve always lived in and around the city…. And as much as I like to travel, Ottawa will always be my home. Of course if I win the lottery, then Akumal, Mexico would be my home for at least part of the year

    Q2-Which CM superstar would you like to see play for your IRL club and why?

    Well I have lots of clubs…. Having Papadopoulos up front for Man Utd these days would be good…. or Taribo West playing for Monterrey to solidify the defence…. or Gattuso beside Bradley at Toronto FC

    Q3-What's your drink of choice?

    Rum. Red wine. Beer. Honestly I’ll drink almost anything apart from gin…. Can’t stand the stuff

    Q4-What do you do for a living?

    I’m a senior analyst working for the Canadian Firearms Program with the RCMP (Canada’s national police force). All things to do with guns go through us…. Licensing, registration, ballistics, crime reports, etc….I’ve worked here for a good while now and have done just about everything…. I’m currently doing trend analysis of smuggling routes and sourcing criminal guns….along with a bit of liaison work with other police forces and departments.

    Q5-Who's your favourite Viper? Please explain your choice.

    Not Kowa or Erk as those bastards keep me out of the lineup. I’d have to say it’s a tie between Ebz and AJ

    Q6-Who would you like to see in the Forum Hall of Fame?

    Ray deserves it for all his hard work around here… I remember when I had the time and energy…. running the CML, the challenges, etc…. dropping the ban hammer on the people who disrupted the site….. good to see people like Ray filling in for us old-timers…. He gets my vote for sure

    Q7-Any other hobbies?

    I play footy on a pretty regular basis…. mostly as a GK, but the occasional defence or striker. I’m tall and have good reflexes. Also enjoy the odd video game, cross country skiing, cooking, and fixing up my cottage

    Q8-What is the best thing about this forum?

    As others have said, it’s the people. I’ve been here since almost the very beginning and I’ve made a lot of friends on this site…. some of whom no longer make appearances, but FB is great at keeping in touch

    Q9-What do you eat the most?

    Burgers, pizza, eggs….. I love cooking so I’m always trying new recipes, but I do love a greasy breakfast or a fast food burger from time to time

    Q10-Who's your favorite babe m/f? pic please

    Kate Beckinsale. I love women and my tastes are varied…. but she will always be on my list.

    Spoiler!


    Q11-Post a pic of your favorite football shirt!

    Mexico ’98 World Cup shirt. I own the home one, my gf ownsthe white away one

    Spoiler!


    Q12-How would your mates describe you?

    Funny, loyal, competitive, know-it-all, and a sarcastic asshole

    Q13-What position do you look to strengthen first in-game?

    I always make sure the DMC is strong. That position is crucial to my preferred tactic. After that it’s the spine of the team… GK, DCs, etc…

    Q14-Where do you go to on vacation?

    Akumal, Mexico once a year. Apart from that, the gf and I like to travel and we’re saving money for a Euro visit in the summer of 2020

    Q15-What's your most loved movie/ tv series and who's your fave character in it?

    Lost (Ben Linus), Simpsons (all of them), Game of Thrones (Sandor Clegane)…. I could re-watch all the episodes again. I’m also a massive Star Wars fan, especially of the Mandalorian culture. I’m actually almost done making a set of Mandalorian armour so I can join the Mandalorian Mercs Costume Club (http://mandalorianmercs.org/). It’s a fan organization that raises money for children’s charities by dressing up like Star Wars characters (like the Stormtroopers of the 501st http://www.501st.com/ and the Rebel Legion http://www.rebellegion.com/). The recent ComicCon in Toronto raised over $10,000 for the local children’s hospital.

    Q16-Menubars. Do you bother?

    Ya. I have a Craig Forrest menubar that predates this forum.

    Q17-What feature would you like to see implemented in CM01/02?

    A playable Mexican League. It’s a shame that the MLS is the only NA league in the game, especially since the Mexican League is far stronger and better supported. I often make a Mexico patch, but it’s not as accurate as I’d like.

    Q18-What team do you hate with a passion and why them?

    I don’t really hate anyone. I don’t like Liverpool or Man City due to their rivalry with United…. same with Rangers in Scotland and Tigres in Mexico…. but hate is a strong word.

    Q19-Compare yourself to a real life football player!

    Craig Forrest

    I, like him, was often on the wrong end of lop-sided score lines…. but again (like him) it was usually during games where I made 20+ saves but still ended up letting in 7 or 8 goals. Sadly, my defenders stopped trying after we got down by a couple of goals and left me trying to stop unrelenting waves of attack.

    My Special question - What’s your favourite live sport to watch, and who do you like to watch?

    Hockey. (Not ice hockey you peasants. Our version is “hockey”,the other version is “field hockey”).

    I’m a die-hard fan of the Philadelphia Flyers and I streamalmost all the games every year. I go see them when they come to town and play vs Ottawa, and last year the gf and I went down to Philly to catch a game there (it was unreal).

    We’re coming off some bad seasons, but our core group of players are in their prime and we’re surrounding them with some top-notch young prospects that are already good and only going to get better…. now if we could only fast-track our “can’t-miss-future-all-star-goalie” to the NHL, we’ll be set

    Q20-Who would you like to see answering questions next and have you got a special Q for them?

    jacobclear. He’s new and I know next to nothing about him so I’m curious.

    Special Q for him – If you could own any animal in the world, what would it be and why?

    Philadelphia because Ottawa had no team growing up and I didn't want to cheer for Montreal or Toronto like everyone else in the area... babysitter had a cousin on the Flyers and used to go on about them... so they became my team

    Don't mind a gin either. It depends what you mix it with as it is indeed vile on its own!

    Wish those old timers on FB would come back on here

    Your missus owns the other Mexico shirt. You mean she claimed it?

    Oh man, that Mexico shirt was a belter, forgot about it too.

    Ice hockey, I went to a game and didn't catch the bug.

    Gin can be very varied taste to taste. Tried a Spanish one last week, was delightful.

    Sounds like a very interesting job!

    My gf loves gin and has about 6 different kinds in the house.... all different colours and flavours.... shame they all taste like varying degrees of shite to me

    The job has its ups and downs..... busy and exciting one moment.... dull and tedious the next

    Gin. Well, there's alcohol in it but that is the only good thing about it.

    Always amazes me when people support more than 1 team. My missus is a Ginist. It's ok, but can't touch a single malt.

    Nice answers CF.

    I support one team per league. I don't understand those who cheer for more than one team per league... that doesn't make sense to me

    She'd recommend that you do. It's her favourite.

    I'd tell you to pour it down the sink

    Q1-What place do you call home and what is your spiritual home?

    I live outside of Gothenburg in the south west of Sweden, 40 minutes from the city. If moving abroud I would prefer Netherlands or England.

    Q2-Which CM superstar would you like to see play for your IRL club and why?

    Q3-What's your drink of choice?

    Water, coffee, white wine.

    Q4-What do you do for a living?

    Working as a janitor so do everything from mowing the grass and shuffle snow depending of what time it is of the year but living in the north, it sure is a bit snow to take care of every year!

    Q5-Who's your favourite Viper? Please explain your choice.

    Don't know about this so no answer on this question.

    Q6-Who would you like to see in the Forum Hall of Fame?

    Andrea71. Very friendly person and know a lot about the game.

    Q7-Any other hobbies?

    I love animals, got two cats and my parents got two cats as well. Watching all kinds of football on TV, thriller, action, crime movies or on calm days I listen to podcasts a lot.

    Q8-What is the best thing about this forum?

    Learning new things about the game, tactics, traning etc and writing with friendly people on here.

    Q10-Who's your favorite babe m/f? pic please

    My girlfriend, no picture

    Q11-Post a pic of your favorite football shirt!

    Maybe no favourite as such but growing up in the 90's in Sweden with World Cup 1994 as the tournement that got me to love football and Sweden finishing 3rd I have this memory of thinking how nice the Cameroon 1994 shirts were. Nothing special or even pretty now but for me as a kid back then I liked it so if any I have to say that

    Help me with adding pic here otherwise a link: https://www.alamy.com/stock-photo/ca...ball-team.html

    Q12-How would your mates describe you?

    Calm, friendly (I hope) and also a big football nerd

    Q13-What position do you look to strengthen first in-game?

    I don't play CM much anymore, mostly update it and do testing but when playing I look at strikers and attacking midfielder, plays 4411 mostly so those two upfront are the priority.

    Q14-Where do you go to on vacation?

    Not been outside Sweden for a long time until this year and then it was to Netherlands and really loved that country and know that I will go there again.

    Q15-What's your most loved movie/ tv series and who's your fave character in it?

    The UEFA Coefficient that teams are seeded based on their last five years result to see who are in pot 1, 2 etc or in qualifiers. Also nations seeding that you can follow the draw and check how close a team are to be seeded or not in group stages.

    Q18-What team do you hate with a passion and why them?

    I don't hate any team. When younger I hated a few teams because of the rivalry with the teams I liked but not anymore.

    Q19-Compare yourself to a real life football player!

    I was a goalkeeper in football so have to say Thomas Ravelli who was my idol in the 90's.

    Q20-Who would you like to see answering questions next and have you got a special Q for them?

    Andrea71. Great guy and can't see him being in the tweny questions thread yet. I wonder when he first started playing this great game and what club he played with the most.

    -

    Some short answers because it's very difficult to explain myself in English in some of these but did my best
