One random fact about you: I'm quite superstitious e.g. I don't walk over three in a row drains because I think It will give me bad luck, and another example is when I scored my first goal this year I ate an apple before the game, so I kept the routine going of eating an apple before the game. It seems to be working as I've scored 4 goals in 5 games!
