Mind Blowing

Thoughts and other crap on people, life and maybe footie...
My Haiku:
I wrote this haiku
with the hope that just maybe.
It blows you away.

The name is irrelevant.
The person is male.
The age is older.
The stories are true.
This blog is mine.

Oranje Juiced

oh well...at least they made it to the semis. so the dutch bows out from Euro 2004, after going thru a turbulent month from the build-up up till the start of the tournament. it was an entertaining semi-final match up, living up to its billing, even though they were fears that it could turn into a dull draw. even though both teams started a bit shaky and cautious, it was free-flowing as the game progressed. i guess portugal were the worthy winners, coz the dutch looked short of ideas...especially in the scoring department. ye laaa..kalo tak takkan all the goals yesterday was scored by portugal. even the dutch had to rely on them to score for their team....hehhe...
so here's what i saw yesterday...a viewpoint from a beat-up sofa in jalan gasing...

Man of the match
Luis Figo...when the going gets tough, Greatness gets going. the captain of portugal showed why scolari should never repeat taking him off in a game. he was everywhere, instrumenting the attack and minding the midfield. deserved a goal when he hit the post as he bended the ball beyond van der dar. the old horse still battles on in what will probably be his final hurrah...

Best goal
Maniche's goal was worthy of winning any final. it was kinda pelik...the TV was showing replays, when the portuguese took a quick corner and maniche just blasted away. then we realized it was a goal. cisss...i didn't see it live technically....hehehe

Best British media impersonation
myself, for giving a mouthful to the referee after making a few strange decisions against the Dutch. okay...so nistelrooy's goal was offside..that i accept, but there were others that really made me say..."Huh??" c'mon laaa..arjen robben for 'simulating'?? maybe i'm just being biased or am i?? no wonder the english are mad...

'U want it, u get it' award
Dick advocaat for having almost 6 attacking players on the field at the end of the match. so u want to attack?? will 3 strikers do? just for added measure...another attacking midfielder should shut the media up....but will they?

Brotherly love award
van nistelrooy and ronaldo exchaging shirts and a hug after the game. oh pleeeeezzzz...
devils...they're all the same.....

so tonite will determine portugal's opponent in the Final. who will it be? czechs or greeks? czechs or greeks? i don't care...janji final best.....
