New season here we come!

Posted by sonofthesun on July 17, 2007

I can’t wait for the Prem League season to start. I support Liverpool, and has been doing so since our dad allowed my brother and I to stay up late with him, the first time, when he watched the 1977 FA Cup final against ManYoo. I was four then. Liverpool lost, but since our dad was rooting for them, we did too, and our family have been hardcore supporters since then.

So anyway, for the first time in many years, we r starting the season with so many new players of top quality. Torres, Ryan Babel and Voronin. Torres’ quality is no doubt, although my Arse-supporting fat mate said last night that he always watches Torres and he was crap. What do fat people know, that’s what I say. Ryan Babel. I admot when I watch him on YouTube the first thing I thought was that “that’s an Arsenal player that is”. He’s perfect for Arse’s style of play – he runs like Henry. What he brings is the ability to take on defenders. The only players Liverpool had last season that were able to do that was probably Pennant, Kewell and Garcia. Pennant is not too good at it though. Kewell is fucking slow and when does he ever play, anyway? Garcia too was slow. Now with Babel, we’re talking Cristiano Ronaldo fast – and he can score too.

But perhaps the one I really can’t wait for is Voronin. Why Voronin? Because he does one thing well – score goals. And not in some Croatian League either – he does that week in week out in Germany – not the easiest league in the world to score goals. It looks like he plays like Dirk Kuyt, only that he takes his goalscoring chances well and is much faster than Kuyt.

So although every season Lpool fans say “this is our year, this is our year”, this year it really will be our year. If we can get someone to take Riise’s place at left back, I think we’ll be sorted. I’m still not convinced by Aurelio. Heinze will be a great addition.

So roll up new season. I can’t wait.

My new favourite site

Posted by sonofthesun on June 12, 2007

I don’t know how many Malaysians really are following the adventures of two of our boys at the Yuri Gagarin Training Centre in Star City, Moscow, but I’m certainly one of them. After disappearing for some time, their blog has made a return at www.angkasawan.com.my/blog    — they even have a new home at www.angkasawan.com.my, which although doesn’t look as slick as the previous website, certainly are much more user friendly. The old one is a flash website and downloading it was a nightmare, plus you can’t really read stuff because the fonts and text space were too small. This one is a much better and simpler html website, with web 2.0 style large size 12 verdana fonts, and clean design. Wish they change the banner though.

Latest news is that they’ll be spinning gasing in the International Space Station. I don’t know what scientific purpose that serves, but I really wish the powers-that-be think about the implications of some of their more stupid statements and plan. The Malaysian National Space Agency, Angkasa, better comes up with the scientific experiments planned pretty soon. They don’t want to embarass the Minister or the Programme, and really should stop embarassing themselves.

On the other hand, I have nothing but support for our two lads in Russia. From what they are telling us, they are doing well and keeping up the country’s good name in Russia. Good for them!

I still don’t know what to write. I want to write politics, but later I can get in trouble, coz here the police can knock your doors in the middle of the night. So I’ll just put in my fav picture of the moment.
