No Cable means no Soccer....

I finally tasted the feeling of not being to soccer the EPL or UEFA Champion League at the convienence of my fingertip.

After over 10 years of EPL over the weekend, suddenly I lost touch with the game. Blame who? Blame Cable for increasing the price. The feeling is not great. I feel MISERABLE, HORRIBLE, BORED AND LOST!!!! I can't even watch the clash between Pool and Arsenal. I can simply drive to my FIL's place to watch, anyway its only 5 mins drive but I don't feel comfortable.

I have not reach the stage of regret as I thought of my studies. Though watching soccer is a way for me to unwind but it will mean less time for wifey if i start studying and then watch soccer. This is what holding me back from reconnecting the channel.

I just hope most Pool's match will be on Saturday....

Don't count Blessing too early

I remembered hours before the match between Liverpool and Marseille, I blogged an article about Liverpool being unbeaten. Then wifey asked me how's my phone betting. I said "Won money." Hours later, Liverpool was silenced and was beaten to Anfield. I began to lose money and Liverpool began to dish out poor football. They were lucky to draw Spurs when Torres scored in injury time. Then was lucky to beat Everton away courtesy of 2 penalties. At this stage, i had lost about $50. I began to get desperate and placed $50 on one match. A week later another $50 on one match. It paid off. I recovered and lost $10 in total. Liverpool poor form continued when they lost 1-2 to Betiska in the Champion League.

Unless Liverpool buck up, it will be another season of great expectation but nothing to show.

End of my EPL days

I finally terminated my Sports Channel and I target to resubscribe after 2 years provided the price remains at $25.00. Reasons being I can save close to $300 a year and also I do not want tto have any distraction when I commence my studies in Jan 08.

This will mean I can't watch my Liverpool at the comfort of my own living room. I will shuttle between my MIL's house to watch the game.

Will 'die' without EPL & Champion League? I shall wait and see...

"Walk On...Walk On...."

Struggling but still unbeaten

After 6-0 drubbing of the Rams, the Reds seem to lose steam somehow. A 0-0 away draw at Portsmouth, a lucky 1-1 away draw to Porto in the Champion League followed by 0-0 home draw against our bogey team Birmingham.

The draw at Portsmouth must considered a good result considering most teams return home empty handed. The horror show by the Reds at Porto was the worse under Benitez this season. We scored a lucky equalizer against the run of play and was fortuntate to survive the wave of attack after Pennant was stupidly sent off for his 2nd bookable offence.

The Reds was suppose to cruise against the Boys from St. Andrews but the Blues defence held tight and we failed to break them down. It's 2 points dropped rather than 1 point gained.

I was in Malacca watching the game against the Latics at the JJB Stadium. The Reds were not impressive. Thankfully we won the game 1-0 thanks to a moment of brillance by Youssi.

Still unbeaten in the we march on.....
