    QMUL > KCL

    Yeah KCL's more Prestigious. They accepted me and then I failed to get in so I became a QMUL student :ahee:

    Good luck with Cambridge. Get in and your parents will be so proud that they'll put a kiong size photo of you up in every room. :top:

    It's just so stressful trying to do work and applications and go to the gym :headfire:
    Don't go to the gym then. Problem solved

    Im a strong Turkish man who needs a woman to go on about football to when my mates aren't around and boost myself esteem by complimenting my muscles

    Damn, good university to end up at. Think QMUL is ranked about 170th worldwide, and considering theres about ~18,000 universities in the world, that's real good A lot of my friends go QMUL, I decided to buck the trend and study outta London. I wouldn't recommend QMUL for postgraduate level though, they gave me a mere 60% conditional offer :K:

    Haha. A photo in every room would be awsummm :sexface:

    But when the boyfriend puts on his football shirt and goes all serious with concentration.... lets you wear one of his football shirts too... talks like an expert about the game, the flash of anger in his eyes when something goes wrong and that swift action when he punches the air when his team scores.. :sexface:

    Haha, I have missed London but living away from home has taught me so many life lessons. I can now cook, wash and iron to perfection. I could easily become a great househusband :sexface: whilst the wife pays the bills

    If you work hard and get a 1st, it is more than possible I went to an awful sixth form, did rubbish in my A-levels etc. and now I'm doing really well with postgrad applications, so anything it possible! Never thought I'd be even applying to Cambridge..or even get into KCL.

    Its not so much complaining about the sport itself, as it is how some fans seem to become almost obnoxious in the way they express their enthusiasm. I remember last year hearing about hooligans disrupting football games at Galatasaray Stadium wasn't it? damaging seats and throwing bottles and litter onto the fields. And one incident of a young kid injured by a thrown bottle. Of course I know not all fans are like that, and that can happen anywhere sports are played. And I would never tell anyone they need to tone down their enthusiasm nor would I have the right to.

    And by the way just out of curiosity, I know its a traditional sport but is oil wrestling still fairly popular in Turkey? Or has football eclipsed it and other older Turkish sports? (though if its the case Id kind of be glad if camel fighting stopped, no offense taken I hope.

      The point is exactly that. They try their utmost to be as obnoxious as possible for the opposition. They want it to be so that the opposition view their stadia as a difficult place in which to play and would dread the thought of visiting it. In Turkey the ambition of the fans is to try and replicate 'Cehennem'.

      I believe you're referring to their match against Fenerbahçe in 2007. Fenerbahçe had already won the title at that point so the Galatasaray fans exacted a sort of violent vengeance, both for their hatred of Fenerbahçe and their disgust at the seasonal performance of their team.

      Well, one kid getting hurt doesn't justify the oppression of football fans as though they were criminals. Even if a child died, or even ten children, it still wouldn't justify what has been done to football fans worldwide. I would rather stand on a dead child's corpse than be glued to those plastic seats.

      Okay, maybe a slight exaggeration, but I hope it helped convey the point across. This is also a deep subject I would rather not go into.

      I believe the most popular sports in Turkey are football and then basketball. Sports such as oil wrestling are held in the same regard as that of a grandmother's wedding ring. It's traditional, Turkish and most people watch the annual Kırkpınar tournament. There is also Karakucak, which is wrestling without the use of oil, and I believe that has been around since the time of the Selçuk Turks. Most villages across Anatolia will have such tournaments.

      This video's an example of such a tournament: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IRHgKSj4_6w.

      My apologies Ramocito, I didn't mean to bring up any sensitive issues But I did say I knew that not all sports fans get violent.

      Thank you for the videos. Very cool to see how it is kept traditional but it also seemed like the guys were having fun as well.

        It's not a 'sensitive', but a rather broad topic I'm quite knowledgable about and thus a debate in the matter would be long winded.

        That's good for her. I'm more interested in the hospital setting so I got myself another internship at one for this summer.
