acceptance and talk about liverpool FA cup match

it’s difficult for me to accept myself for i usually feel inadequate. my bad habit to regularly compare me to others. that’s why i am not quite thrilled about reunion.

there are things i want in life, but when i finally get them, it doesn’t feel fulfilling. things don’t make up for emotional crater.

done with gibberish foolish piece, i feel so joy w/ liverpool beating man united in FA cup. i have doubt [don’t we all] about how the team is going. still can’t justify the existence of carroll in the team. a goal came from a defender, do we need a striker then? still think the only thing amazing about henderson is his hair not falling out of place after 90-minute run. still can’t read uncle ken’s mind as to why he did what he did.

but all’s well that ends well, right? carroll seemed more involved in the game, coming into more contact of the ball. and henderson…well, his hair still looked good. in the end, though, we beat the opponent and advances to the next round.

i will settle with them winning something, anything this season. always support the team but need to rant from time to time.


the really last game of the season – the fa cup


finally we are lucky enough that the networks, not just one but two, decide to buy the license and broadcast the fa cup for our viewing pleasure. yeh! one more kudo to the cable one to start broadcast an hour earlier so that we can witness the beautiful pre-game rituals. very good indeed. 

it’s quite pleasant to see mr. kofi annan as the chief guest (as the commentator called him) in the fa cup. not the guest i’d expect to see at a football match. i look up to him highly. too bad i didn’t work at u.n. during his time as secretary general. who knows he’s a football fan ūüôā ¬†he is, right?

back to the pitch, i’m saying this without any bias but chelsea looks¬†heinous¬†in yellow jersey. yellow is rarely my favorite color (not because chelsea wearing it). toffeemen are blue as ever. so they are the home team then.

the interesting thing about this contest, everton scored since the 1st minute of the game. don’t you find that interesting? maybe chelsea is too confident to play defense? things might not be too set in stone as football columnists had predicted. look at champion leagues, for example, man utd seemed to have an upper hand for bar√ßa lacked the regular guys in defense. see who brought the big-eared trophy home.¬†

yes, i’m mentioning this out of spite for those devils. he he he

the game is tied now and i’m rooting for everton. you don’t expect me to cheer for chelsea, do you?¬†

it’s game over now. ¬†chelsea pays homage to their respectable manager by winning a trophy for him. guus hiddink is (another) special one, no arguments there.¬†

though no trophy in merseyside this season, both reds and toffeemen were doing so well. they have such amazing and memorable season. the reds were so close and outdid themselves. everton finished 5th. good job guys. very well-done. 

come back stronger next season you both. i’m rooting for you. yes, you too, everton. you are our rival/cousin. can’t live with you, can’t live without you.¬†

football season is over. gossip girl is over. what should i do with the tv set during the tv downtime? any suggestions? 

chelsea lift the trophy. and english football is officially closed of business. 

thank you for the season full of drama, entertainment, and pure spirit. see you again in august.

dear fa cup,


who do you wanna go home with?

these guys are competing for your hand. 



i want arsenal to beat chelsea so that they become very exhausted and lose to us on tuesday. 

usually, i’m rooting for everton but let’s see man utd get through this round. then they will have 3 competitions to distract.¬†

am i cunning or what?

hail to the spaniards. support to our captain

gerrard could have easily put that ball in the net. despite himself, he passed the ball to torres who never let us down. bless gerrard for his selflessness, heart of gold (goal :-)), and team spirit. i think that goal meant a lot to torres, who just came back from injury. it not only won us the game but also boosted torres’ morale and confidence. hail to gerrard – our real captain fantastic.¬†

this is the way to start new year. swell guys!
