Hopefully you'll all be pleased to see the long overdue return to the Blogs of the "Getting To Know..." series, where we ambush an AG member and fire a load of questions at them with the aim of letting you know a bit of they're all about. This instalment saw me head off down to the big city, the home of The Queen, Stormzy and Del Boy. In the place otherwise known as the Big Smoke, or That There London, we caught up with an AG member who might have not been a member very long compared to some, but has thrown himself into the community and is a popular member of the hard working Admin team.


Name: Ali
Age: 22

We’re getting down to the business end of the season in Division 1 and youre in the top two, how do you think its going to pan out for you?

I did predict myself to win the league, which got a few laughing reactions. I’ve put myself in a much better position compared to last season but with the fact that I’m still chasing Brian1867x , I don’t think I’ll be able to catch him. I just need to focus on my next 2 sets of games against x Morriis and aaronc333 and hope Brian and the rest around me slip up. Lastly just wanted to say, massive thank you to Big B 1970 , Red Rhinoceros , TheAshCohen09 and Dx I Jaminator who all predicted me to get relegated this season. I’m glad I was able to prove you all wrong!

This is your third season in the AGFL and seems to be your best so far, does it take time to settle into the leagues?

My start at AG couldn’t have gone any better! I managed to win the Euros with Northern Ireland, making a good chunk of scudo for some of the lads on the site as x Plunkett gave me some crazy odds. No surprise he nearly lost his job in the process.

I think in my first season, results didn’t seem to go my way as I was trying too hard to build a past and present Liverpool side, which kind of set me back. Looking at last season, I was trying to play a tactic with a new team that wasn’t working. However, this season I seem to have found a formation and players that work for me along with getting some nice FIFA luck in the process.

You’ve been very active in the transfer market this season, but what has been your best bit of business?

I’ve been very active this season in the market, I always seem to chop and change my side from time to time. My best business would have to be finally signing my mate Fabio Carvalho from Joe , after weeks of negotiations. I think our chat had about 60 messages as we kept going back and fourth but he wouldn’t budge on price. I finally decided to pay I think 27 million for him, which was a piece of business Joe definitely regrets doing, now that Carvalho might be joining Liverpool!

20 Questions:

  • Who is your sporting hero? Steven Gerrard. Grew up watching him and I always wanted to be like him. Think a few people could’ve guessed this one as he’s my profile picture and background on my AG profile.
  • Which reality TV show would you do? The Mrs won’t be pleased about this one, but it would have to be Love Island. Think I could easily win the show, but don’t get me wrong when it comes to splitting or stealing the cash at the end, I will be taking all of it home with me.
  • How would your friends describe you in 3 words? Funny, caring, lazy.
  • Delete all the apps on your phone, which 3 would you save? Safari, Snapchat and YouTube.
  • Worst injury, sporting or otherwise? Fracturing 3 ribs while deciding to become a WWE Superstar with a couple of mates on the trampoline.
  • One place in the world you would love to travel to? Australia
  • Favourite band/artist? Tricky one for me to pick as I don’t really listen to many bands. If I had to pick a favourite artist it would have to be Lil Tjay from the American scene and Abra Cadabra from the UK.
  • Your club's all-time best 5 a Side team? Alisson, Van Dijk, Gerrard, Salah and Suarez.
  • Premier League Darts, what’s your entrance music? Talking The Hardest by Giggs
  • What is your guilty pleasure? Pop Tarts
  • One go to football match, no matter how old? It’s the classic answer from a Liverpool Fan, 2005 champions league final.
  • Favourite tv show growing up? Friends. Was always on the tv and it’s now gotten to a point where I know it all.
  • What is your biggest fear or phobia? Heights
  • Do you have any strange collections? I wouldn’t say any strange ones but I used to have stacks on stacks of Match Attax, used to complete the whole Prem collection year on year. Wish I still carried on with it but hoping my son will when he’s a bit older.
  • What is your pet hate? Loud eaters.
  • Proudest moment to date? Would have to be the birth of son back on the 10th of June 2019.
  • Most dangerous thing you have ever done? Would probably have to be trying to do a wheelie on my electric scooter. Safe to say it did not end well!
  • If your life was turned into a movie, who would play you? Sacha Baron Cohen.
  • Favourite alcoholic drink? Long Island Ice Tea.
  • Last TV show you binged watched? The last show I binge watched would have to be Ozark. What a banging show, I couldn’t get enough of it and still can’t. Think I smashed through the episodes in like a day or two.

Thanks Ali, thats a very strong 5-a-side team you've picked, and I suspect a lot of our older members will be looking on Spotify to find out who the hell those musical choices are! We've heard about how youre faring in the AG Fantasy League, but of course Absolute Gaming is much more than that, so lets talk about other games:

Away from FIFA, you like to get stuck in with the other events on AG, and you've joined the AG Tour on the golf. How are you finding that? I really do enjoy the golf, it’s a game I’m always playing at the moment as I find it quite chilled and fun to play. I got the game when I saw the price drop around Christmas time too. I’ll have to admit I’m the worst at the golf out of all the AG players by a country mile. Nevertheless I do enjoy the game a lot and can see my game has slowly been improving so hopefully one day, if a miracle happens I’ll get a win to my name.

Is there a favourite game you keep going back to and never tire of?
One game I will never get tired of is Cricket 22. Although it’s a new game it’s basically very similar to Cricket 19 which was one of my favourite games. Loads of people will find it boring but it’s my go to game. Sadly I haven’t got round to playing much of it recently as I've been getting into golf and hitman, but if I had to pick any game it would have to be a cricket one.

Thanks for taking the time to answer the questions, and I know youre keen to keep this series of blogs going, so I'll look forward to 'Getting To Know...' another AG member when you take over the reins.

Look out of another interview in the near future!
