(Read previous editions of Know Thy Madridista)
Today we have Noufel Harris who is an ardent Real Madrid and Liverpool Fan. He follows many many topics and would have a great discussion on them with much expertise. You can find him on Twitter or become his friend on Facebook. Let’s get to it then?
Tanuj : First up, tell us about you.
Noufel : I am an Indian currently in Nigeria and hoping to be in many more countries. A traveller and a human rights & social development activist is what I want to be. In real life, a marketing guy*I am surprised myself*. Otherwise football crazy, news & info junkie, tech enthusiast, world movie fan and loves reading! I know..sounds like everything but nothing, right?
T : Since when have you been a Real Madrid fan? (if you happen to remember)
N : It was sometime during late 90’s while watching Real Madrid take the centre-stage again in UCL that I became fan. I have Raul Gonzales to thank for making me a convert! Now a Madridista for life!
T : What is your favourite part of Real Madrid football club?
N : The legacy of Real Madrid was hard to resist. The football, the LEGEND’s of the club, the stadium and like I said Raul(even though he has left)!
T : Which has been your all time favourite Real Madrid player?
N : Do I need to even answer this question? Refer previous 2 answers :)
T : A Real Madrid moment you can’t forget?
N : There are so many moments to cherish and a few to forget over the last decade. The victory over Man Utd in 2000 UCL QF is one of the earliest wonderful memories. The Zidane UCL final was truly a highlight moment for any Real Madrid fan I am sure. Other than that the 06-07 season offered so many wonderful moments!
T : La Liga or UCL, which one would you love to see us win more?
N : Both..being a bit greedy! But seriously if I had to choose I would say La Liga as I want to see Barca’s hold on the league title broken.
T : Which has been your favourite signing for this season? (excluding Mourinho)
N : Mesut Ozil. I am not one to go for hype but I really think he has the potential to become a playmaker in the Zidane league. He is very good for his age and he only needs to improve his consistency & performances in the big matches a bit more.
T :Which game did you most enjoy this season?
N : The goal-fest against Deportivo was quite spectacular and a relief. The away game at Milan, for though we drew the match, we really dominated and played some fine football in that match.
