The Revenge of Chucky: UEFA Champions League 99-00 Review

UEFA 1999-2000


“I would rather loose and feel like a winner then cheat and feel like a looser.” ― Looney Toons

(Chucky often plays Eidos UEFA 99/00 like he is looney tunes.)

(Chucky thinks Looney Tunes is iTunes for hyper-charismatics.)

“Failure is an opportunity to learn again” ― Bangambiki Habyarimana, The Great Pearl of Wisdom

(Chucky follows this and therefore he fails in matches in order to always learn.)

"Fate does not expect to be fought and will reward those who dare to fight against it.” ― Bangambiki Habyarimana, The Great Pearl of Wisdom

(Chucky thinks that is a quote from the Pearl of Great Price.)

"Success sits on a mountain of mistakes” ― Bangambiki Habyarimana, The Great Pearl of Wisdom 

(Chucky needs to play with UEFA clubs from the Alps.)

 “The gatekeepers are not there to prohibit you anything, they just want to frighten you away, if you are courageous enough to go through them, they will let you , thinking you are the owner or his so” ― Bangambiki Habyarimana, The Great Pearl of Wisdom

(Chucky reads this as his goalkeepers will not prohibit anything.)

This is the second old game review from my restored Windows XP. Chucky and I have attempted to improve video quality. You Tube too has as well at publish, but we are recording from another live screen and dealing with lighting issues. The You Tube edits made the video worse and so I reposted the videos. Featuring a custom made computer from 2000, made by Mr. Bobby Singh, Khalsa Computers, Manchester, England.


Video 1: April 18, 2016: Bayern Munich 1974 4 v AIK 1

Before my short trip, I 'show Chucky' how it is done. Short five minute demonstration match on how to do it, decently well.

Video 2: April 21, 2016: Chucky is losing his first cancelled match 9-2 and receives an easier second match; which he manages to barely win in extra time 6 to 4.

This is a ten minute match with some silly delays and lighting. You may want to jog, exercise or do your nails, while this thing is playing.

There are some funny quips.

We finish this video with me asking Chucky to compare Actua Soccer 3 (Previous old game review) v. UEFA 99/00, which was also taking place throughout the videos.

Sir Chuckles is sixteen years later, beginning to appreciate the UEFA game even with personal shellackings endured. To be fair, as I have stated, the game has worked better on newer operating systems and with newer video technology.

It originally ran in 'Six Million Dollar Man' slow motion. One can reason out why this game was not played that much over the years.

Video 3: April 22, 2016: Sturm Graz 0 v Lazio 2

UEFA don't know what you are doing Chuck.

Short five minute demonstration.

Don't You Hurt Granny!

I had not intended to post this image and story on Blogger. But, it is my most viewed post so far on Russell Norman Murray @drrnm, Facebook page. Our complex has paid for a new roof  (This area is infamous for leaky condo roofs). Our skylight was removed temporarily and when visiting 'Granny' I made sure I was not near the opening. Soon there was a piece of roof near Granny's walker.... I had to pick up the material to verify. I think it actually landed closer to the walker...

Off to my mini-summer vacation. I might post something...
