........The Future is RIGGED........

This story caught my eye in the New Straits Times today.
As a Man U supporter and knowing that the Raja Muda of Perlis is the patron of the Manchester United Fan Club in Malaysia, I dont quite know what to make out of this.

Under the headline "Dont Wear Devil Jerseys"

"Muslims must not wear the famous Manchester United red jersey because of the “devil” emblem on its team crest, two prominent ulama said yesterday.
Manchester United and the rest of the English Premier League are massively popular in Muslim-majority Malaysia and the rest of the Asian region, but conservative religious scholars said the jersey is unIslamic.
Also off limits are the shirts of teams, including Brazil, Portugal, Barcelona, Serbia and Norway, all of which carry images of the cross on their team emblems.
“This is very dangerous. As a Muslim, we should not worship the symbols of other religions or the devils,” said Datuk Nooh Gadot, the former mufti of Johor.
“It will erode our belief in Islam. There is no reason why we as Muslims should wear such jerseys, either for sports or fashion reasons,” said Nooh, an adviser to the Johor religious council."

So what are my muslim Man U friends going to do now ?
However I think it is a diabolical plan by these two "prominent ulama" who might be CHELSEA and LIVERPOOL supporters !! Haha! !

Yes, the World Cup came to a close with Spain being the worthy winners 1-0 over Holland.

Its going to be 3 more weeks before the EPL kicks off but i think after the world cup it would take some getting used to after the amazing event in South Africa.
Some of my friends; like Dan Shan have remarked their world cup withdrawals is so bad that he wakes up at 2:30am , only to realise that there is no football and resorts to surfing RTM1. Golf Channel and who knows maybe even the Hallmark Channel.

So what were my best moments in the world cup you ask (or do not ask) ? Here they are:

8 out of 8 correct predictions and he became the biggest world cup star since Pele....maybe bigger as I doubt Pele could have got 8 straight correct predictions. Seriously, someone appoint Paul as Chief Economist at Bank Negara already !!

The debate on goal-line technology continues after Lampard's non-goal against Germany. FIFA Prez Blatter did apologise to England but even the English said with that team they would have lost anyway.

Yes but only among themselves. Terrible perfomances. Anelka ent home. Training was boycotted. The Football Fed boss quit and Sarkozy announced a govt inquest. Only the French can do it in style.

What was the fuss all about ? I thought it added to the atmosphere in South Africa! Players complaining etc...Jeez !. I got a friend to buy me a couple when he went for the semi finals and I gave one to Tom Drury and have since warned the nation.

My perennial favourites, Argentina did better than expected despite Juan Sebastian Veron and not having Riquelme. Maradona was the most watched coach on TV and his PC was always well attended by the media waiting for his next melt-down. Despite losing to germany 0-4 they returned home to a hero's welcome proving this lil dude with God's hand can do no wrong in their eyes.

In a rugby-mad nation, the Kiwis proved to be the find of the tournament. The only country to leave South Africa unbeaten !! Amazing and my childhood buddy, Doug Flash Sumner was over-the-moon in NZ. I...Question: f there is a New Zealand...where the heck is Old Zealand ?

No..not Robben's but the JABULANI touted by ADIDAS as "thefirst perfectly round football"..critics complained that the flight of the ball was not true, blah blah...but one Diego Forlan must be thinking this ball was made just for him.

Despite the rude wake-up call by Switzerland, they proved to be the team with the best passing game. Captain and keeper Casillas had a brilliant tournament and in my opinion justice was served when their best player, Iniesta scored the winner.

Here is to Rio in 2014 !
