FanDuel - WFBC

Which Footballer Are You?: Come on guys, somebody had to lower the tone of this place! Besides, the questions are amusing and the results are not totally off the mark.

According to this thing, I am Freddie Ljungberg, which means, again according to this thing, that although I need a new hairdresser, I'm a class player. I'm not a saint but I'm not a hatchet man either. However, unlike a solid Swedish table, I'm a bit unstable (hey, Eminem could use that line). My temper needs to be controlled. This thing is pretty darn accurate.

You are Gabriel Batistuta An Argentinian genius. You're one of the highest scorers in Serie A, smacking home 27 goals in 13 games. You're not a bad bloke but you look after yourself. Especially now that you could be past your best.

"You are Rivaldo You're one of the best players on the planet. You lead by example and you're way too refined to rake your studs down anyones shins. You do sometimes have trouble passing the ball to lesser players, though." hahahahaha.

You cheated, worldcup2002![How did you do it?]

I most certainly did not cheat, Miguel. I took it seriously half the time, and jokingly the other half. Aside from choosing "sleep with the blonde and kick her out of bed in the morning to make breakfast", I was quite the gentleman in my responses. I thought I'd get the mickey taken out of me at the end (e.g., "You're a third division player in Wales.") but I ended up getting Rivaldo. Sometimes, it pays to be nice. What'd you get? Totti? ;-)

Worse, worldcup2002: I got Oliver Kahn. As in "your massive presence fills the goal. Or is it your ego. You frighten your own defenders more than you intimidate the other side's forwards. You're not a vicious man but you are the bully boy at the back." Not very good, huh? Not for a moment did I think you'd cheated. It was just undiluted envy. :)

Hmmm. I also got Freddie Ljungberg. About right.

I am David Seaman apparently. "You've saved England more times than anyone but unless you're joining Status Quo, you need to lose the ponytail. You're a decent bloke who always does the right thing. But the error-count is slowly on the up." Yay I'm spunky. Hehe. I don't disagree with the analysis. We all make mistakes after all. I lost the ponytail five years ago though.

Batistuta!

Another Rivaldo here. I remember taking one of these several years ago, and I ended up being David Platt. Reconcile that.

Freddie Ljungberg too.

The question about your most memorable soccer moment was a tad Anglocentric, but this Brazilian is Rivaldo, so I'll take it. skronk, you've evolved.
