kenapa 'interesting'?

Almaklumlah, saya ini bukannya ahli sangat mengenai sukan bola sepak ini, malahan, baru sahaja dalam bulan ini berkenal-kenalan dengan Messi, Teves, Higuain, Neuer, Ozil, Schwensteiger, Mueller, Podolski, Boateng. Saya baru juga memahami konsep off side. Layakkah saya memberikan komentar mengenai sukan ini? Well, saya menulis bukan untuk impress sesiapa pun, sekadar berkongsi pandangan mata kasar seorang yang buta bola dan ignorant mengenai perkembangan sukan mengenai apa yang dianggap menarik dalam match Argentina vs Germany baru-baru ini.

For one thing, apabila saya menonton match Germany vs. England, nyata, saya jatuh hati dengan cara permainan Germany. Tidak kisahlah pemain England lebih dikenali berbanding pemain Germany pun, saya difahamkan pemain Germany pemain baru lagi muda-muda. Walau bagaimanapun, agility dan kecergasan pemain germany ini sememangnya memikat hati.

Jadinya, walaupun saya sudah sedia maklum, ramai rakan-rakan sekalian menyokong Argentina, well, tidak dinafikan Argentina is one of the best, tetapi saya menyokong Germany bersama-sama ayah saya. Saya sebelum ini hanya melihat Argentina lawan Mexico, itu pun saya tertidur di tengah-tengah match. Yelah, sebagai seorang yang amat amat menghargai masa tidur, saya tidak pernah stay-up sehingga pukul 2 pagi semata-mata bola.

Hati yang sedikit kecewa dengan kekalahan Brazil dengan Netherlands terubat keesokan malamnya. Ternyata match Germany vs Argentina ini antara match paling menarik pernah saya tontoni. Baru saya faham mengapa rakan-rakan menyokong Argentina. They play well. Ball possession lebih memihak pemain Argentina walaupun Germany sudah awal-awal lagi score (strategy agaknya. memang strategy bagus). Bukan mudah merebut bola daripada pemain Argentina ini, dan banyak kali pula pemain-pemain Argentina ini bermain offensive. Malangnya, nasib tidak menyebelahi mereka, dan tiada sebarang jaringan.

Of course, credits kepada goalie Germany. Nyata, pada amatan saya, goalie Germany amatlah bagus. Jika dibandingkan dengan goalie team lain, ternyata lebih menonjol kerana caranya menahan bola. Sungguh accuarate anticipation dia, kesemua bola tendangan pihak lawan memasuki dakapannya. Tidak perlu berdrama dengan gaya terguling-guling dan dan menampar-nampar bola dengan hujung jari.

1st half ternyata kelihatan sengit. Saya sendiri tertanya-tanya. Germany tidak berganjakkah daripada score 1 goal? Ada peluang lagikah Argentina untuk mengejar dan mengalahkan Germany?

Walau bagaimanapun, dalam 2nd half, Germany masih memiliki match tersebut dan menyumbat lagi 3 goal dengan selamba. Germany tidak banyak bermain offensive, tetapi jarang-jarang kali Germany bermain di kawasan Argentina, dapat juga menyumbat.

Argentina sebenarnya banyak menyerang dan banyak juga peluang untuk score, tetapi malangnya, nasib tidak menyebelahi mereka. Si Messi yang diuar-uarkan pemain hebat juga mendapati nasib tidak menyebelahinya pada malam itu. Walaupun saya memang penyokong Germany, ingin juga melihat bagaimana hebat Si Messi ini. Sayang tidak ada satu goal pun.

Apa-apa pun, 4-0 memang satu kekalahan yang teruk, sorry ya, peminat Argentina, bukan merendah-rendahkan team sokongan kamu, don't take it the wrong way, just an expression of what I thought of the game, tetapi game pada malam itu adalah antara yang paling puas hati, menarik dan seronok ditonton. Pertarungan sengit antara dua team yang hebat, especially semasa 1st half. I don't know if to the rest of you it was a good game or not regardless of the results, but this is just what I personally thought, and I thought it was interesting, don't attack me ya. And as a person who is not an avid fan of football, I hardly think my opinions matter. Just chill.

Seterusnya, Germany vs. Spain. Harapnya menarik jugalah.

Great observation!
Now you are getting use to football.
Yup, Germany probably is the best team in the world cup. Even if they don't win it, they still are the best.

If they can maintain this kind of form, I cant see a reason why they couldnt win the world cup.

By the way, you should watch EPL a bit more, Arsenal and Manchester United do play football in fashion. (speaking as a fan of MAn UtD)
HAha

It soccer not football. When you go to Canada, you will be watching ice hockey and football (i.e., NFL, and CFL)... Soccer will be a boring game after that.

I used to love soccer, but after watching NFL and college football, soccer is a boring game.

If you have not read this book, get you hands on it quick!
Yes, I'm serious, it is that good.

why?
simply because it is unforgivingly, brutally honest.
What I love of this book is basically the fact that not a single word has gone to waste. Every single description is relevant, and makes for a pinpoint analogy of each scenario in the book. When you traverse each sentence, you already have an idea what the author is trying to portray in the way he describes what the characters do, wear, walk, talk. the simple gestures represent the very soul of the culture so imminently depicted in this book.
And the main character, Balram, seems so real that you could almost believe that he actually runs around in the streets, er, slums of India. The complexity of emotions and the inner turmoil he felt as he expresses his views on the issues.
The author's ideas of a new-age caste of small-bellied and big-bellied people and the Rooster Coop has been compellingly displayed along the storyline, and y…

Okay, yesterday, I went to my little sister's kindergarten sports day held at SMK Seksyen 5, Wangsa Maju Hall. Well, the field is wet because it has been raining almost every day in KL, well, in my area.
Anyway, I was the photographer that day, a tak bertauliah one, mind you. Here are some of the pics. They are so cute!
