First of all thank you to everyone that entered the competition – we received some fantastic entries. A huge thanks also goes out to Trinity Mirror Sport Media for providing a copy for us to giveaway.
We read through so many entries, eventually we had to decide upon one and we are now happy to announce the entry below as the winner. Congratulations go out to Chris Manning for providing a detailed insight into the kind of day he would have with Fabrice Muamba. Hopefully, we will be able to get the book signed for you too.
Then we’d go for a nice walk around Crompton Lodges to work off some of the fat we’d consumed over our mega breakfast. During this time I would probably grill him on his career and of course post the results on Voice of Bolton. I would ask about his upbringing and the harsh realities of growing up in war zone (London) and then move onto his footballing career. I would very much like to know about the mechanics of his transfer to Bolton and exactly why he decided to make the right decision and come North.
Then it would be lunchtime and seeing as we’d had a big breakfast we’d probably just grab something light such as a Morrisons salad bowl, probably with bacon bits or fried onion bits because as I said earlier now he’s not a pro footballer he can let himself go a bit. During this time we would discuss things like films or music, and I’d get his opinion on Avatar because I thought it was rubbish.
In the afternoon we’d have a game of 5 a side booked at Bury College, so we’d have a drive over to the College in my car and then meet up with whoever we had corralled together to play. Fab would be on my team of course, seeing as he’s my best mate for the day, but I would put him in net because nobody else can put in the work that I do on the 5 a side pitch, top to bottom, left to right like a proper midfield dynamo. Obviously I would let him have a few touches because I’m not a heartless monster.
Once the hour is over we’d go into Bury and probably have a pint at Yates’ Wine Lodge.
As tea time approached we would stay in the pub and order something like the beer and burger offer at £3.99 – I’d pay of course because it’s my treat and I’m generous like that. The pub quiz starts at 8 so we’d have to decide whether we stayed for that or whether we’d get a cab to the cinema to catch Paranormal Activity 4 but I’m not keen on horror films so Fab would have to hold my hand.
We finish the night after the film with a long hug on the car park, and with tears in both our eyes we’d part knowing that we could never again experience another day as perfect as this so long as we both lived.
As mentioned above, we received some great entries. Although majority of the entries were centered around football, we also had suggestions from readers; such as going go-karting, going to nandos, play FIFA 13, a trip to the hospital, watching movies and to the more traditional sitting down for a chat. We also had an entry from an individual in Saudi Arabia, who has a dream to play in English Football one day, who wished to learn from Fabrice, to get some advice.
We wish you all the best for your dreams and ambitions and one day, we do hope they come true.
So, one competition down, and plenty more to go. We have plenty more up our sleeves here at the Voice Of Bolton camp, so if you’re not already following us on Facebook or Twitter, get Liking/Following us now. You can do this via the Social Panel on the left hand side of your screen.
Remember, if you’re not in it – you can’t win it.
