'''The world is full of heroes, and game worlds are even fuller of heroes. We never seem to get enough of bravery, strength and the stories about a single man or women saving the whole world.

Back then around 2000 we were around 15 guys in the Swedish [[community]] (almost all of us living in Stockholm) who used to regularly meet at least once a season. This January 2001 we made a weekend trip to Hasse's (later [[HT-Hasse]]) home in Ludvika around 25 miles northwest of Stockholm.
 +
 +
We all brought a print of our team so everyone could brag about their players, but mostly all of us wanted to have a look at Geddan's (coach for Gäddträsket, winner of the Allsvenskan a couple of times) and Micke's (coach for IFK Livergården, also winner of some big trophies) teams as they were so much better than the rest.

One can say there were two major events during a meeting like this, at least if you exclude all the laughs, talks, nice dinners and going out to the pub. One was of course watching our matches together, and the matches took place on Sunday morning at 10. The other major event was the '''youth pick competition''', which took place when we got home from the pub late Saturday night.
 +
 +
The rules were simple, best youth pick wins! At that time my youth squad level was disastrous, but that didn't stop me from competing! There were stories about it being easier to pull an ok goalie, so to increase my poor chances to win I pulled a goalie and just seconds afterwards everyone in the room started laughing.
 +
 +
In front of the screen I was looking at '''Bob Sunesson'''. For a youngster he was very old, 22 years, and as this happened at the end of the season he would soon turn 23. Hooray!
 +
 +
His keeper abilities wasn't exactly divine either, he was ''wretched''. As if this wasn't enough to show the world what a "fantastic" keeper he was, we also noticed that what was supposed to be his best skill (keeper) wasn't even his best skill - he was in fact a better winger, but ''poor'' of course. Naturally I won the youth pick competition and an anti-hero was born.
 +
 +
Soon after the birth there were a lot of stories about Bob. He was the most fantastic football player the world had ever seen even though the jealous reporters did everything in their power to deny that - he literally made jam out of his opponents (BOB is a Swedish jam brand).
 +
 +
He was also so very good looking and all the girls dreamed about him. Every week the gossip papers had a story about Bob being on a "love vacation" with the most beautiful women, mostly actresses and models. '''Bob was simply put a star'''.
 +
 +
Bob's real debut on the pitch was the first cup match of the season after his birth, and I don't think anyone was surprised when he scored the first goal in the match after just 7 minutes. That's how stars do it! That said, it wasn't his performances on the pitch which would made him big - it was all the stories around him.
 +
 +
 +
The rumours of Bob spread to the HT-team's (at that time only [[HT-Johan|Johan]] and [[HT-Björn|Björn]]) ears and some months later they turned him into a beloved team member - the first and only player of that kind. Their thought with this so called "easter egg" was to turn Bob into '''a mascot for Hattrick''', but that plan was never made real as a loud part of the community didn't like the fact that Bob had been altered with (even though it didn't give him/me any benefits as his leader abilities were so poor).
 +
 +
This episode made Bob even more famous and despite the mascot plans being abondoned he turned into a kind of unofficial mascot, which culminates when the ''player faces are introduced in the Spring 2002'''. Bob doesn't get just one picture, he gets several and in each and every one of them there's something covering his face: a bucket, a flag, a football and even a cat! His different "faces" added a lot to the mystic around him and if he wasn't famous before he was for sure famous now.
 +
 +
 +
The years went on, Bob played at least one competition match each year and when [[Tjecko-85]] played in the Allsvenskan I made sure that nr 10, Bob Sunesson, also played at the highest level. Thanks to Bob we made it a draw against [[Inter Sthlm]], at that time the dominating club in the world.

New fans all around the world joined his fan club every day, but one day it was time for Bob to retire. Bob felt it was time for new stars to shine and he thought his appearance was holding others back.

His decision was for real and the match against phobos fc three days earlier became his last appearance on the pitch. In the first half Bob scored a Hattrick - what a way for a star to finish off his long career!

Met Bob at the bank

A legendary beloved nice guy, Bob Sunesson is both a player and an Easter egg. His true appearance was never fully revealed as each time a different object covered his face.

Career

Bob was a youth pull made by HT-Tjecken at a Hattrick party on 14 January 2001. In combination with his somewhat silly name, the fact that triggered a lot of jokes about him was he had poor Wing as best skill, but he was pulled at the age of 22 as a goalkeeper.

Cult Icon (2001-2006)

About nine months after his pull, the members of the Hattrick Team transformed him a beloved team member the highest agreeability level in game.

Memorable moments
23/08/2001 Bob Sunesson's outstanding performances for Hattrick are recognised by the HFA (Hattrick Football Association), and they claim him to be a "beloved team member".

Anyway, it is a myth that Bob has ever had high leadership, even before they made him beloved: his leadership has always been poor since the first day.

Question on Global Conference
Did Bob have solid leadership when they made him beloved? or is that a mith?
HT-Tjecken
Myth.
(773204) Bob Sunesson

38 years, inadequate form, healthy

I speak Svenska!

A beloved team member who is calm and dishonest.
Has poor experience and poor leadership abilities.

Nationality: Sverige
Total Skill Index (TSI): 0
Owner: Tjecko-85
Career Goals: 9
Career Hattricks: 1


Bob, with his changing faces and his status,
hours before quitting on April 1

When the players' faces were implemented in the game, those users who wondered what Bob Sunesson looked like had to keep wondering as the joke on him continued. Bob was given a unique feature: the changing faces! subsequently improved into an Easter egg with his face covered each time by a different object.

Controversy

Bob was the only beloved player in the game. However his agreeability could not have given his team any advantage as a clown (a myth, but in any case his leadership was too low). The controversial thing was that, according to the cryptic rules of the time, if its owner had decided to get rid of all players with higher leadership Bob would have become the best team leader in the entire game!

Retirement (2006)

On 28 March 2006, ironically Bob scored the only hattrick of his career on his last game. In fact, Bob retired from football three days later, on April 1.

His retirement message goes like this
Bob was last seen surrounded by beautiful photo models with a cocktail drink in his hand. His legendary days in Hattrick will always be remembered.

After Retirement (2006-today)

Bob was immediately hired in the bank that in the game provides credit, as confirmed by the achievement Met Bob at the bank. He must have had a surprisingly fast and brilliant career as the bank quickly took his name to become Banque Sunesson.

Achievement 14
Bought at Banque Sunesson at least 1, 5 or 10 bonds.

Bob Sunesson - the story about an anti-hero

Written by HT-Tjecken (17/07/2009 11:04)

The world is full of heroes, and game worlds are even fuller of heroes. We never seem to get enough of bravery, strength and the stories about a single man or women saving the whole world. Hattrick is not any different, we all dream about that perfect skilled player or picking up that fantastic youth player who'll bring trophies and glory to our team. At least that was the case until a 22 year old wretched youth keeper made his entry in Jan 2001. How did he end up as the most famous Hattrick player of all times?


Back then around 2000 we were around 15 guys in the Swedish community (almost all of us living in Stockholm) who used to regularly meet at least once a season. This January 2001 we made a weekend trip to Hasse's (later HT-Hasse) home in Ludvika around 25 miles northwest of Stockholm.

We all brought a print of our team so everyone could brag about their players, but mostly all of us wanted to have a look at Geddan's (coach for Gäddträsket, winner of the Allsvenskan a couple of times) and Micke's (coach for IFK Livergården, also winner of some big trophies) teams as they were so much better than the rest.

One can say there were two major events during a meeting like this, at least if you exclude all the laughs, talks, nice dinners and going out to the pub. One was of course watching our matches together, and the matches took place on Sunday morning at 10. The other major event was the youth pick competition, which took place when we got home from the pub late Saturday night.

There were stories about it being easier to pull an ok goalie, so to increase my poor chances to win I pulled a goalie and just seconds afterwards everyone in the room started laughing.

In front of the screen I was looking at Bob Sunesson. For a youngster he was very old, 22 years, and as this happened at the end of the season he would soon turn 23. Hooray!

His keeper abilities wasn't exactly divine either, he was wretched. As if this wasn't enough to show the world what a "fantastic" keeper he was, we also noticed that what was supposed to be his best skill (keeper) wasn't even his best skill - he was in fact a better winger, but poor of course. Naturally I won the youth pick competition and an anti-hero was born.

This episode made Bob even more famous and despite the mascot plans being abondoned he turned into a kind of unofficial mascot, which culminates when the player faces are introduced in the Spring 2002'. Bob doesn't get just one picture, he gets several and in each and every one of them there's something covering his face: a bucket, a flag, a football and even a cat! His different "faces" added a lot to the mystic around him and if he wasn't famous before he was for sure famous now.
