Lee Chong Wei

I watched Lee Chong Wei historic win last night and I am so proud of him. He was devastatingly good at times and shockingly very nervous during the final against Kenichi Tago of Japan. Tago had given him stern test last night but fortunately LCW was up to the task and delivered his first All-England title after seven year in the competition.

In the first set, LCW started slowly and Tago was up 4-0 and 15-11 but then Chong Wei got hot and finally nose ahead 16-15 before closed the set 21-19 after Tago managed to save 3 set points.

Chong Wei leads 6-1 and 11-7 in the second set, but the Japanese managed to level at 14-14. Chong Wei then stretched the lead to 20-17. This time around, nerve were truly got the better of Chong Wei as he squandered 2 match points before his final shot landed in the baseline which in my opinion was out but was called in by the line judge to hand him his first All-England title.

Hahaha, I was laughing when I saw the TV crew replay the last point over and over again. The shuttle was definitely out for about 1cm!!. But, in this sort of game, luck is definitely going to play their part. the only question is, who gets the better luck. In this case, Chong Wei is the lucky guy. But, he deserved the title. Definitely deserve the title.

Maybe Lin Dan was not his opponent in the final but who cares. It was not Chong Wei's fault that he has to beat Tago instead of Lin Dan in the final. I did however anticipate Lin Dan - LCW final but sadly it did not materialized. Hats off to Chong Wei for his title and next in line is Thomas Cup. Malaysia Boleh! Haha

Preview - France vs Spain

Well, I can smell it. 4 years of waiting is almost over. Yes! The Gigantic and Fabulous World Cup 2010 in South Africa is upon us. Da tak sabor benor da nih nk tengok World Cup di Stupid Box 29 inci kat rumah aku. Tomorrow, we can get a little taste of what is to come this June. The world's best squads are battling each other this week in International Friendly. I have been supporting France since 1998 masa France are the World Champions.huhu. of course, Spain should comfortably win this match as France has been kind of struggling to qualify to the World Cup (ye, tangan Henrylah yang melayakkan France ke World Cup but who cares?hehe). Spain are European Champions and heavy favourite to win the World Cup but France are former champions of both world cup and euro, so don't count out France team yet.


For me, Spain has the most talented squad. Full of world-class talent in every position. They have the most gifted Goalkeeper in Iker Casillas. Only Buffon can challenge him on being the best goalkeeper in the world although in my opinion Casillas is the best. Sergio Ramos, Puyol, and Pique are some of the world best defenders. Their trio of midfield of Xavi, Iniesta and Fabregas are enough to make opponents rase nak terkencing dalam seluar. Torres and David Villa for me are the most fearsome and lethal strikers in the world. For me, Spain is the most complete team in the world right now with Brazil.


Tolong tukar coach yang bernama Raymond Domenech. Please. Aku berpendapat masalah France adalah pada Jurulatihnya. For me, they also have the team which capable of beating the world best squad such as Spain and Brazil tetapi sebab seorang manager yang tidak tahu akan taktik-taktik permainan maka France beraksi seperti Selangor. Sampah. Spain ada Del Bosque, Brazil ada Dunga, England ada Capello, even Malaysia pun ada Rajagopal tetapi France ada Domenech yang tarafnya macam budak sekolah baru nak belajar membaca. Henry langsung tak nampak dah kat Barcelona, Ribery kejap timbul kejap tenggelam, Malouda turun kasta jadi left back, Vieira da jadi tukang bedah diri sendiri kat Citeh, Gallas emosi terlampau, Benzema memanaskan Bucket Seat Real Madrid, sape je yang tinggal?

Down la pulak bile aku tulis post nih. Cari team lain lak nak support time World Cup. France sudah tidak sehebat dulu seperti zaman kegemilangan Zidane, Deschamps, Desailly, Petit, Henry dan lain-lain.


Spain 4 - 1 France

Manchester United - Carling Cup Champions

Not much to say as Aston Villa cannot do anything to prevent Manchester United from winning the Cup. Even with Wayne Super Duper Rooney on the bench, Manyoo still dominated the match except for the penalty conceded by Mr Vidic on foul to Gaby Agbonlahor which Milner converted.

Owen then equalized 8 minutes after the penalty after silly mistake by Richard Dunne who gives away possession easily to Berbatov.

Rooney then came on to replace injured Owen just before halftime and delivered the killer header to finish off Villa 16 minute from time.

So, I'm not going to write anything longer because obviously I was supporting Villa during the match. Congratulation to Manchester United and hopefully this will be the last silverware of the season for them. Adios.

PS: Sori kawan2, xde mood nk tulis pasal manyoo menang, sket2 sudey. Len kali bile manyoo kalah, aku janji aku kutuk panjang lebar dlm blog ni.
