Liverpool 3 - 0 Sunderland

Good evening to everyone.

Let me start off by saying well done Liverpool. You've made my sacrifice of sleeping quite late yesterday to watch the match against Sunderland in which we won worth it. Although I almost fell asleep as I watched it online on my computer while laying down on the bed. But thank god my eyes decided to fight the urge for me to sleep.

The result is a good one. Winning 3-0 against a team that had created quite a habit to gain points against the big 4 rivals. Do note that Sunderland managed to beat Arsenal, drew with Manchester United and they even beat Liverpool at their stadium thanks to that fucked up beach ball that managed to cause confusion for the goalkeeper and in the end, the ball hits the back of the net. A ridiculous way to score a goal but well, I guess the referee was in denial of the rule set by FIFA that a foreign object should not be on the field because it could disrupt the flow of the game.

Back to the fantastic and much needed result of winning against the 'Black Cats'. The first half was absolutely wonderful and tremendous. If Liverpool can play like the way they did yesterday, I can foresee that we can win the Europa Cup and even grab that desperately needed 4th spot in the BPL. They key for yesterday's performance lies not at the front but at the back and in the middle of Liverpool's starting eleven. With solid and accurately exchanging passes, no wonder we controlled much of the possession in the first half. With Mascherano and Gerrard constantly initiated that killer pass and unleash the currently on form Torres in front of the goal, it is not a surprise that we beat Sunderland.

I can still recall the commentator of the match saying that Liverpool had 79% of the possession in the first half. Basically, it was a one way traffic and if Torres were to take his chances accurately, he would have grabbed 1 or even 2 more goals. He scored 2 goals by the way. His first goal was absolutely brilliant by slotting the ball in the top corner of Sunderland's goal from an angle which is very hard to score. Liverpool's second goal was a direct one as Johnson cuts the ball and unleash a shot towards Sunderland's goal and thanks to a deflection from one of the rival defenders, the ball ended in the back of the net. Torres second goal shows that if you keep your cool in front of the goal, you can score no matter what the condition is. From Johnson's pass, he calmly slot the ball home with a simple tap in after tricking two Sunderland defenders who slides to block the ball but in the end failed to do so.

In the second half, Liverpool started to play a little safe and when Benitez substituted El-Zhar for Gerrard and Ngog for Torres, you can't expect anymore goals later on during the game. Although Ngog were feed with 2 fantastic chances to score by passes from both Maxi and Aquilani, he failed to take full advantage of it. The match ended to Liverpool's favour and 3 points in the bag.

As for the race for the fourth place, it still depends on Spurs performance which is currently at their very best and if they maintain it, we can kiss the 4th spot goodbye. But, there's still 6 more games to be played and nothing is for certain in football. As a Liverpool fan, I hope Liverpool can grab that 4th spot and win the Europa Cup to at least make us, the fans, a little happy since we've seen a lot of miserable results from our club this season.

And note this Liverpool, no matter what happens, I'll be supporting and sticking to you regardless of the results and pressure from other fans out there. I know one day you'll make me proud like the one you did in Istanbul 2005. I screamed by heart out watching that match and I hope, I'll be able to see we win that trophy again in the near future.

The ever pathetic one,
Fais Azlan.

Can't Sleep!

For reason I do not know myself, I somehow wanted to update my blog. Kinda like wtf man. It's been ages since I wrote something in my blog. Currently I'm feeling freaking tired and I can't sleep too. Pusing kanan pusing kiri pun tak jadie. Haha.

So, my day was alright. Work at the office was as high as Mount. Everest. Or should I say more than that. The stairs that connects the ground floor all the way to the third floor is like my daily route about 7-8 times per day. Kinda like exercising while at work. Great right. Yeah but quite tiring to do so frequently.

Owh owh, btw, Liverpool is playing against Lille tonight. They'll be playing against a team called Lille from France. Liverpool will start with a goal deficit due to that stupid 0-1 lost at Lille. So, like or not, the Reds have to win by a goal margin more than 2, just to be safe. Winning 2-1 is not acceptable as Liverpool will be kicked out due to the away goal rule. Don't know what does that mean? Google it people. The key is for Torres, Gerrard, Maxi and Reina to play the same spirit and enthusiasm that they showed against Portsmouth. The desire to win must be there. The problem is that their morale is currently so freaking down. They need a hell lots of motivation boost. So to Liverpool, camon', let's at least grab the Europa Cup. Since there are not more cups that we can win anyway.

Yours faithfully,
Fais Azlan :)

Note: Wishful thinking is stupid Fais. It's just plain stupid.

Lostprophets - Where We Belong

Lostprophets - Where We Belong

Oh, take these storms away
Start a brand new story.
I'll make it through each day
Singing death or glory.
Lord won't answer me
I won't let it bring me down.

I know these clouds are gray
That I am living under.
I know I'll be okay
With the rain or thunder.
I hear it calling me
I won't march into the sound.

Ooooooohhhhhhhhh, Woah.

I just get this feeling
You're holding me down.
And these answers I'm needing
I guess they're being smothered by the sound.
Of all this emotion
And all of this hate.
Still I keep searching for something to put my faith in, to find my place so I keep singing.

Oh, take these storms away
Start a brand new story.
I'll make it through each day
Singing death or glory.
Lord won't answer me
I won't let it bring me down.

Ooooooooohhhhhhhhh, Woah.

Hold on,
Hold on,
We'll move along.

Where we belong
Where we belong.
My heart, my soul.

I don't need a vision
I'd like to embrace.
And not only false promises, hopes and wishes.
To find my place
So I keep singing.

Oh, take these storms away
Start a brand new story.
I'll make it through each day
Singing death or glory.
Lord won't answer me
I won't let it bring me down.

Oooooooooohhhhhhhhhh, Woah.

Where we belong
Where we belong
My heart, my soul.
We stand alone.

Hold on,
Hold on,
Where we belong.
My heart, my song.
We stand alone.

Hold on,
Hold on,
Where we belong.
My heart, my song.
We stand alone.

Hold on,
Hold on,
Where we belong.
My heart, my soul
YYEEAAAAHHHHHH!

Oh, take these storms away
Start a brand new story.
I'll make it through each day
Singing death or glory.
Lord won't answer me
I won't let it bring me down.

Note: People might kick you, treats you like trash or even disrespect you. All I can say is... Hold on Fais... Hold on... :)
