As most of you know, Ian Rush came over to KL quite frequent, either as a EPSN pundits or playing in an exhibition games or holding a couple of days football clinic to the pathetic Malaysian football team. (I watch with dismay all the three games... against Laos - no one should shout as if we've won the cup, against Vietnam - the goalkeeper will be remembered most as silly as Robinson and against Thai... wow that team seems to be on another level altogether...).
Anyway, I found Ian Rush's article about his recent visit to Malaysia. Some nice words.
p/s look at the photo and tell me what do you think of the photographer's name...
Goal that helped sink United
I’ve just returned home from four enjoyable days in Malaysia.
I was part of the Liverpool Legends team who triumphed in the first ever Asian Masters.
It was a five-a-side round robin tournament between us, Manchester United, Arsenal and a Premier League All-Stars team.
We won all our games to get through to the final and then beat United 5-3.
I managed to get on the scoresheet in the final, but the main men were John Durnin and Mike Marsh, who played well.
Michael Thomas, Paul Walsh, Phil Babb and goalkeeper Paul Jones were also in the squad and we were playing in front of an enthusiastic crowd of 5,000.
While I was in Kuala Lumpur I had the time to visit the Liverpool supporters club to watch the Blackburn game.
They are mad about their football over there and there must have been 500 people in this place cheering on the Reds.
It was just great to see their fanaticism.
