My first time was when I was about 13-14. I’d saved some money from my evening paper round and also added a Sunday morning paper round. I’d initially saved to buy a Sega Master System but found myself with more money due to my birthday and decided I’d go 16 bit rather than 8 bit and treat myself. I went into Bradford with my mum and my brother and parted with my hard earned cash in exchange for a Sega Megadrive.
What I hadn’t considered was that I had just about enough money to buy myself the console but it didn’t come with a game. I borrowed some cash and got Sonic The Hedgehog as reviews had been positive and it looked great graphically. My first proper console was bought and I couldn’t wait to get home and try it out.
I’d previously had an Atari 2600 with games like Keystone Cops, Decathlon etc but that was years ago and the games and graphics now seem terrible. I also had a Commodore 64 when others had an Amiga and had enjoyed games like Yie Ar Kung Fu back in the day. Gaming was moving on and I didn’t want to get left behind. I’d played on both the master system and the megadrive and had loved games like Golden Axe and wanted my own console rather than getting a go occasionally at a friends house.
I got my console home and had a quick look at the instructions. Power lead in, aerial lead into the back of the TV, (might have been a scart lead back then) and controller plugged in the front. Cartridge inserted. Power turned on and that magical sound of “SAY-GAR” as the blue writing appears on the screen and confirms you’ve set it up right and managed to not blow it up.

"It's not a situation we were expecting to be in, but I think we're there on merit. It's a hard-working group and the results thus far have matched our strong performances," Baddar told the Jungle Gazette.
Girona is a club that hadn't as much as played in the top tier of Spanish football until 2017, and now they're making waves on the world stage. Baddar is refusing to get carried away with their good start, however.
"Everyone had tipped us to be in a relegation battle, but the first eight games have gone well for us. It's important we build on it though, as there's still a long way to go in the season."
Many have singled out a few players in particular regarding the strong start - Valère Germain being one of them, with the Frenchman netting 7 times already. Jonathan Cafú has also received plaudits for his performances which have included a handful of goals.
Valère Germain - 7 goals so far for Girona
"It's such a cliche thing to say but it's been a team effort. Andreas Pereira has been fantastic alongside Luka (Milivojevic) in midfield, Abdul (Waris) has stepped in when required and done a great job, and when you look at the amount of goals we've conceded compared to the rest of the league, we're strong at the back, too."
The Girona boss did refuse to get drawn into any promotion talk though.
"Look, I've said since the start of the season that it's a very competitive league. There are a few teams who've stood out so far but there are no easy wins. My job is to get the lads playing attractive football and the results will hopefully continue to speak for themselves."

Although the Portuguese climate thoroughly agreed with Big Ron's need for a constant tan, the lure of Japan and the offer of a free motorbike from Kawasaki was too much to resist and off he went to the land of the rising sun. A big decision had to be made at this point.... was he going to take Roland (his faithful no 2)? After much deliberation Big Ron came to the conclusion that lure of Geisha girls all over the place was going to prove too enticing for Roland, and as consequence he felt it would be best if he searched for a new no 2.
Flicking through the contact list on his iPhone, he could see a whole range of potential candidates..... Gary Megson, Sheridan, Hirsty, Waddle..... all had fine qualities but Mego was too ginger, Sheridan... mad Irish man, Hirsty... always on the pop, and Waddle... never available as he is always doing reunion gigs singing Diamond Lights with that nut job Hoddle.
Then his eye was caught by one name... Palmer! Why of course.... it was the obvious choice - Carlton Palmer... who better to have as a no 2! Hardworking, industrious, Carlton would be the perfect choice... his Mr Gadget like limbs would look great in the Kawasaki tracksuit...

The Zenit head coaches lack of trust in his own ability proved appropriate in almost all of his opening 5 games. Some abysmal results sparingly scattered with the odd away point which delivered some false optimism for the Russian side were beginning to look farcical. Seemingly unaffected of fazed by the poor results, PANDA remained calm on the outside but those close to the Zenit manager said he was concealing a deep feeling of dejection. Some say he didn't know how to play the game anymore. Others say he'd fallen out of love. The main feeling coming out of the club was he definitely could not decide what formation to deploy or which tactics to administer that would compliment the personnel he'd acquired.
But what a difference a few weeks can generate. Zenit are unbeaten in their last 3 games and 4 desperately needed points have supplied cracks at bottom of the Xbox Premiership mountain, enabling Zenit to slowly ascend to safety. Although it's very early in the season, this latest confidence boost to the manager and squad will provide scope for Premiership existence. Something PANDA had no real optimism regarding back in September.

His career started out as manager of Lazio, this was to be an interesting time for the young manager who was trying to find his feet in a league with some managers who had been around for some time.

Sunderland went into season six with excitement but no fear against these behemoths of the PS4 side! Who was first out of the hat well lets just say the draw wasn't kind a trip to defending Champions Dortmond and @Gregmeister in the first weeks! This was met with cheers on Wearside "Lets put these German So and So's to the sword!" was the cry " Aye and there Brummie manager." So the Black Cats travelled to Dortmond and despite running into a three goal lead couldnt hold out to the more experienced outfit finally getting beat 5 - 4. But plenty of positives to be took scoring four goals against the current Champions away from home was seen as a great first step in the division. Up next was another newly promoted team as Sunderland again travelled away this time to @Cloughy's PSG, these two teams had always had close matches and this was no different a share of the spoils in a 2 - 2 draw. Both teams will of been hoping for a win to try and get some momentum going but neither team would lie down so it finished a draw. A loss and win in the first two matches wasn't bad and morale was still high in the Sunderland Squad as they looked to their next match their first home tie against Inter Milan and @blueyboy_73 playoff Champions!
