It’s about this time every year I get excited about a particular event on the video gaming calendar. Late September/Early October always signals the release of the latest addition to the Fifa series.

As an Xbox 360 owner, I was eagerly awaiting Fifa 07, all those teams and players in wonderful high definition. Last week I found out, to my anger, that the Xbox 360 version only includes 6 leagues and no Leeds. Talk about a half finished job.

I had to play as Leeds. Had to, and as Mr. Kevin Blackwell failed to drag The Whites out of the crappy Championship last season, I would not be able to play as my beloved team on the 360.

For the last week I have been pondering “shall I buy a PlayStation 2 and Fifa 07?” The PlayStation 2 version does feature Leeds. The only disadvantages are that it’ll set me back £100+, I already have a PS2 (albeit broken) and its pretty old technology, the PS3 is out in March.

Today, as I walked back from work I decided “I’m so wrapped up in the nonsense of life. If I want a PlayStation 2, why don’t I just get a PlayStation 2?” and that is what I did.

A 2nd hand PS2 with a 1 year warranty, component cable, memory card and Fifa 07 – £125. Some people may think I am mad, they would probably be right. Still, I’m happy, Fifa 07 is great. I just have to master it now. My current performances have been reminiscent of Kevin Blackwell’s Leeds United. Still in time I’ll get good, bring the PS2 into work and beat that ManU supporter 6-0.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
