@#$**!!!^&.. gonna miss the clash!!!

Got this SMS via the Singtel "*SEND" service Alrite... Looks like we got a tight race towards the end of the season like last year. Sorry for MIA (Missing-In-Action) for the past TWO weeks as I just returned from a short trip and been busy tidy up my travelog and photos BUT I do still follow the league title race even when I was overseas thanks to this paid service after switching from ORANGE to RED . Unfortunately, this SMS update will still have to play a part in update me the outcome, when the defending champions SAFFC travel to Yishun stadium this coming Wednesday for the gigantic showdown against the Super Reds, as I will be on second shift.. @#$**!!!^& How a @#$**!!!^& coincidence.. @#$**!!!^& ... @#$**!!!^& ... @#$**!!!^&

JAXTR.... me clueless still

I think some of my peers had already received a mail from me regarding "JAXTR".. All I can say is I'm still trying to figure how the thing works, I think for a start you can try "send voicemail" to me , although I'm a bit skeptical about the "call me free" as I'm not sure if there's any "hidden cost" involved and also I'm trying to configure my mobile number for this "JAXTR" set-up.

How could you!!! Sir....

from the AFC official site ... We have lost an ally to prevent the "invasion" ... I have nothing to say but feeling disappointed and regret the fact that such an "U-TURN" took place...

"Ooops!! I did it AGAIN!!" TNP

The New Paper 05th Oct 2008 Just less than 24 hours we heard out how Egmar Goncalves is, another shocking news unfold from an unlikely source - The New Paper, that another pioneering player of the controversial FTS, Mirko Grabovac had packed and went back to Croatia. Again, the main local (European) football paper had triumphed again in bringing us another sensational story that all least expected them to do so, given their track record in recent times. Enough said of that, it's clear in this article that the FTS scheme is once again under the scrutiny of the public eyes and things can't be help when another product of such scheme - Li Jiawei had announced her engagement to a businessman and her plan to return to her place of birth after her role in ending the Olympics medal drought for this island republic in 40 odd years. So I think I can't blame some of those folks out there for against engaging foreign-born sportsmen for bring sporting glory to us when some of the

Egmar was here...

Got an email from a friend in Brazil In his email he mentioned that Egmar Goncalves, the former Home United legend and national player dropped in for a visit at this blog not that long ago (some text blurred as it wasn't meant for public viewing :P). Based on the info my friend Renato given, I managed to trace down where "ES" (Espirito Santo) is in Brazil, using my "Feedjit" tracker. Again, I don't know how reliable this "Feedjit" software in tracking down the location of visitors (remember a blog entry I posted months back?) Anyway, this is the only presentable picture I have of the prolific striker who had truly left his mark on local football scene (received his long awaited "top-scorer" award in 2004 from the then DPM Dr Tony Tan, whom many people at the awards night mistaken me for him when I made my entrance), despite all the highs and lows... We should wish he well...

Cliffhanger for Home U...

Alrite, I got to make this short here as I felt I am not in the best condition to post a long blog entry (been mistyped a few words along the way). In short, after a humiliating lost to Super Reds at the start of the week, Home United bounced back and thrashed Geylang United 3-1 at the Jalan Besar Stadium yesterday (as it was already past 12 midnight when I typed this) to put themselves back in the title race. These cadets booked out early to be at JBS for the match, thus they were instrumental for the Protectors' victory ?? Snapshot of the match action from the stand. Home United coach P N Sivaji and national skipper Indra Sahdan at the post-match press conf. A bit tipsy at this point of posting this entry, many thanks for the drink from Mr Antony Sutton and Mr Ash Tan at the coffeeshop (beside the ground) after the match...
