MU, Drifters and the Stuggle

I was helping out a friend with his masters assignment when I thought that I shoud have a look at my blog. You see when you are new to this blog thing you forgot you had one. Anyway I almost fell off the chair when I saw 10 comments. WOW, I thought and the second thought that raced through my mind was it must be zorro. I was right, zorro played a very important part in this and I can't thank him enough.

What struck me most was the lack of animosity some Liverpool fans had towards me. Yes I know they hate MU as much as I hate Liverpool but don't you think they were quite nice in saying out their preference. I would usually have heated and very loud arguements with Liverpool fans. What I am trying to say is that either these people are really nice people or the common denomination in us, that is our common struggle, prevents them from hurting each other's feelings. Anyway I would like to invite all MU fans out there to pat themselves in the back for the 3-2 victory early this morning. I stayed up with my two daughters, both of whom are MU fanatics and celebrated with them. What a pity my son is not around, he too is MU all the way. My son-in-law unfortunately a Liverpool fan was snoring away.

This saturday is of course a big day where we will meet them in their ground and with a little bit of luck we could come out winners. I have to give them this, they are no pushovers but I got this feeling that we will somehow prevail.

Enough about MU, I was delighted that through one strong like-minded blog (zorro's) we could meet and may this lead to more. I am not IT savy and I really do not know what tagging and some of the other terms used but I am sure that in time I will catch up but would appreciate all the help.

When I first heard of the word tag it sent shivers down my spine, you know the kind you would have had if face to face with the monster in Alien coz it really was alien to me.

Well lastly to all those drifters who I now consider my friends thanx for drifting buy and do drop in again and to Zorro, I owe you a great debt of gratitute and when you drop by in Penang please give me a call. I can't make it to KL to join you yet caz I have an ailing brother (MU fan too) to tend to. Maybe one day.

OK tagged! Guilty, sorry, but I guys its kinda of a nice way to start blogging don't ya? I mean get the weirdness out of the way, and then its plain sailing, huh?

I leave every morning at 4.15am to send my wife to work. Before you ask, she works for an MNC dealing with Calls from down under. So that gets me home everyday around 5.00am. On European nights, when Liverpool plays, I would miss the first half. Most of the time I get to catch the highlights, so not that bad!
On days when MU plays, like this morning, I get to catch the game too! No points for guessing who I was routing for!! Neways, my FIL MU, Aife, MU...looks like it will either be Reds or devils...
Good game it was, but I thought MU was wobbly the last 20 mins or so.

Oh the Goal against Lille? That was cheeky. Anyways, enjoy the weekend, and lets hope I get to enjoy it more than u!...LOL Ha know what I mean!

Look forward to reading your weirdness..He he...3 out of 6 responded, ...check out

KTN...Nuraina of 3540 Jalan Sudin, I think initiated this. I was tagged by ShanghaiFish. I welcomed it as a respite after Rocky's hearing on 33Feb. To destress somewhat, I though I will play along this tag game. You are welcome to view my posting on that. Maybe now you will be convinced that you have a weird friend in me.
We'll bungkus Liverpool. Bet on that.Much cheers chegu.

Chegu, visit 3540....Nurainah continues the saga of her dad's (the iconic journalist Samad Ismail who Guz imprisoned for more than 5 years under the ISA.)detention.

So zorro how do I get to 3540? Please bear with me for my ignorance. This old dog takes too much time to learn new tricks.

Well allied, I agree MU was wobbly for much of the time accept the first 6 minutes. We suffered the same kind of goal against the gunners once as Lille suffered from us so they got no business complaining. Yes it was cheeky and this type of cheekiness needs experience.

this saturday is the biggest test... if we can survive the liverfools onslaught, then i think the season is almost sealed.

so we are known as drifters? hahaha.... didnt know that...

Zewt. This saturday will be a real test. After all there are 10 more games, we could fford to lose 2 more games and must win the other 8. If we slip in the other 8, I am sure the blues could also slip. We don't care so much about the reds or the gunners who shoot blanks. So I am confident, win or lose this saturday.

Well I use to drift around from one blog to another so I call myself a drifter. If anyone has any reservation towards being called one then I am trully sorry.
