All About newtruegunner
It's been a long..Long...Long time since i logged into my gamespot account!
Firsthow are you guys (if any of you are left that is)?
Football = Football has really taken a back seat for me at the moment. I'm really busy with my job to the point that by the time i get home i don't get much spare time at all. Plus living in England = Rain..Rain and you guessed it more rain!
Games = I own most of the recent games consoles, and having been a long time supporter of the Xbox 360 (owned since day 1) i now find my self playing my Playstation 3 (owned since day one) more than my Xbox (and lets be honest who needs a Wii when you can get Kinect?) I dare say my opinion will change when Gears of War 3 is released but until that point i expect the PS3 to command most of my time.
Xbox 360Gamerscore = 94,306 (could be a lot Higher if i was playing my xbox more)
PS3Trophy = 551 Level 10 (39%) (again could be higher but it's the first time in a long time that i've really played my PS3 for a prolonged time)
Onto Little Big Planet 2, 2 things firstly, this game is AMAZING (but what did you expect?) secondly please play my Level Speed RollerCoaster P4Pand if you send me a PSN message i will play yours.
Thanks for your time.
I will try my best to keep visiting GS but at the moment it takes a back seat.
Eduardo celebrated his first pre-season appearance of the 2009/10 campaign with a **** brace as Arsenal brushed aside Szombathelyi Haladas 5-0 in Hungary on Monday night.
A few days earlier, it had been rumoured that the Croatian striker was injured and would miss the first two months of the season. However he seemed extremely fit and well this evening, firing home a low shot in the 24th minute and a free-kick five minutes before the break.
Nicklas Bendtner also poached a pair before the interval. The great Dane nodded in a delightful cross from Armand Traore in the 17th minute and slotted home a simple second, the fourth for his team, just before half time.
The flood of goals dried up somewhat after the interval but Robin van Persie did add to Arsenal's tally, scoring with a penalty in the 66th minute. He also had a late header ruled out.
Haladas did have a chance for some consolation from the penalty spot seven minutes from time but Brazilian defender Barbosa slipped in his run-up and could only trickle the ball past the post.
It was a slightly comical end to a serious run-out for Arsenal and a very, very straightforward win.
It was a bright and breezy night in Western Hungary. The team coach made the winding, hour-long trip from the Club's Austrian training carrying a team in good spirits.
It had been a week of tough-but-necessary double sessions in practice plus that notable 7-1 thumping of SC Columbia last Tuesday.
However while that side played in Austrian division four, Haladas had finished third in the Hungarian top flight last term and had won themselves a place in the Europa League.
Unfortunately for them, four days before this fixture the Rohonci úti Stadion had witnessed their exit from that competition to Elfsborg in the Third Qualifying Round. Despite that, this was still a significant increase in pre-season standard for Wenger's side.
The opening stages were cagey. Haladas keeper Daniel Rozsa rushed out to deny Bendtner and, in the ninth minute, captain Peter Toth thumped the ball into the Arsenal net at the far post. However the whistle had long since blown for offside.
Keeper Vito Mannone nearly copied Manuel Almunia's mistake at SC Columbia when his clearance was charged down by Marton Oross and flew a few yards wide of goal.
The Italian keeper had to rush out again in the 17th minute to deny two breakaway Haladas strikers. It was nearly an immediate response for the home side because, a few seconds earlier, they had fallen behind to the simplest of goals. Troare flew down the left and crossed for the unmarked Bendtner to steer home a header at the near post.
In the 24th minute, Arsenal doubled their advantage when Eduardo found some space in the corner of the area and drove home a low shot off the base of the far post.
Left back Toth seemed the most attacking outlet for the hosts and blasted over an effort shortly afterwards.
However, having barely extended themselves to create a 2-0 lead, Arsenal were playing well within themselves. Eduardo fired straight into the chest of Rozsa and, shortly afterwards, Bendtner would have headed home had he not collided with the Croatian in mid-air.
The duo would become much more cohesive as the end of the first half approached. First Bendtner was fouled five yards outside the area and Eduardo's low free-kick crept inside the far post with keeper floundering. Then, two minutes from the whistle, Bendtner had time and space on the edge of the area to pick his spot. He chose to beat the keeper with shot into the bottom right-hand corner of the net.
Wenger made eight substitutions at the break. Only Jack Wilshere, Eduardo and Aaron Ramsey stayed on.
It seemed almost cruel bringing on a fresh Andrey Arshavin and Van Persie against a side already 4-0 down. Within a few minutes of the restart, the Dutchman had headed on to the top of the net and the Russian had blasted just wide.
In the 53rd minute, Wilshere got in on the act. The winger scooped a shot over the keeper and back off the bar. A cheeky effort.
Eduardo made way after 62 impressive minutes and Bendtner came back on. Five minutes later the 21-year-old was needlessly felled by Rozsa in the area and Van Persie scored with a perfect penalty into the top corner.
Wilshere nearly nudged home a delightful third but, with 15 minutes left, Haladas did at least threaten a goal. Something they had failed to do since the first quarter of an hour. Wojciech Szczesny pulled off fine double save from Norbert Lattenstein and Roland Ugrai then tipped over a free-kick from Szabolcs Schimmer.
Normal service was nearly resumed as Van Persie nodded home from Mikael Silvestre's steepling cross 11 minutes from time. However his effort was ruled out.
Haladas should have troubled the scorers in the 83rd minute when Gallas was adjudged to have impeded Matel Skriba. However Barbosa slipped in his run-up and could only send the ball scuttling past the post.
Arsenal's goal-hungry pre-season continues.
Hi Guys its been a long time since I've been here and i have no plans to visit here very often again. however i have now realised i no longer need to visit this site and will only do so when i feel like it rather than it feeling like a responsibility.
What I've been up to:
well since the last time i was here i have got a job as a trainee accountant and am really enjoying my job and certainly the money it brings. istarted my job3days after i completed school at the age of 16 (still 16 lol). i have also laid off the games a bit and spend most of my spare time playing sports (football mostly).
What are my future plans:
none really at the moment i just plan to see where life takes me and hope that I'm heading in the right direction. I've never really been one to plan ahead.
well i now have over 50,000 gamerscore but had i played games as much as i was i could easily be over 60,000 now. i am finding it increasingly hard to complete games as i just don't have the attention span to do so anymore.
::::Edit::::Sonic pointed out that official bad pointed out thatmy link does not work so if you want to see my games just compare games with me
i just ordered star wars lethal alliance and scene it
Last thing i did:
Ordered WWE Night of champions
