- My apology for not being able to post an immediate reaction after the game. I was on a tight schedule and my body was losing massive energies while in Pakistan. I've just landed today and due to fly to Penang tomorrow. Saturday must be spend with my family.
- Again, I had the sweet opportunity of being able to watch the game 3 hours earlier than Malaysia (due to the time difference) but again, it didn't have a happy-ending. I am too exhausted to analyse the game. I would prefer to focus on the plus-side of the game and leave it to you guys to comment on the failure of the team to register a win against the lucky-Birmingham.
- As you can see, David Ngog did made a statement in that game. That is heartening. More time on the pitch, surely good for his confidence. Not only he scored the second goal, he was instrumental in ensuring the equaliser. Regardless of the loud complain that he dived, you must not judge by the slow-motion repeated over and over again in the TV. In such a surged towards the goal mouth and then slashed with that furious tackle, it was fortunate that Ngog did what he did and escaped with no injury. Yet, some pundits prefer to look at the incident in a rather different way. Let them be. The more they write about Ngog, I think it would serve Ngog reputation some how. It's a good thing to compare his previous reputation as an ineffective striker for Liverpool. Now he can be bold, notorious, tenacious and bring the scared out of the opponent's defenders. hehehe
