Great idea Shpati and welcome. I missed you :)

Since we're doing introductions I was born in Tirana and my family origins are from the Deep South in the highlands of Kurvelesh. Long time member of several Albanian related fora.

I've lived in Brooklyn for a while now.

Favourite things to do: watch foreign movies, read classics, play basketball and poker.

Favourite teams: Albania, Partizani, NYCFC, Jose Mourinho.

I'll respect this if you just truly admire the guy. But please tell me you're not some Mourinho fanboy, trying to pull one of these outfits in public yourself:

Been a fan of Jose for over a decade now. And I am ashamed to admit that I pull that outfit all Spring long, but that's not because I'm a Mourinho fanboy, it's just because I have style ;)

Irrelevant to the style talk, but there is a very small list of people who can get me as enraged as Mourinho can... Was really hoping Wenger was going to kick Mourinho's ass the last time Arsenal and Chelsea faced each other and the two of them got into a small sideline altercation.
