Zahida Menggatal vs Stadium Merdeka

Madu tualang power! Click here

Sekarang ini mungkin telah ketahuan khabar-khabar angin dikalangan penyokong pembangkang betapa bangsatnya pemerintah yg telah menyewakan Stadium Merdeka untuk Himpunan Kebangkitan Rakyat baru-baru ini dengan harga RM100,000-00. 

Tidak diketahui berapa jumlah dikenakan kepada Bon Jovi 19 tahun dahulu. Juga tidak diketahui berapa Michael Jackson bayar untuk konsertnya di Stadium Merdeka. Tapi untuk orang luar, meskipun jumlahnya RM200,000-00, itu masuk akal. Lu nak guna stadium gua, lu jgn banyak songel, lu bayar.

Tapi untuk anak tempatan berkumpul, menyanyi, berpuisi, pun jumlahnya RM100,000-00? Untuk 3 jam. Bukan 3 hari 3 malam! Itulah kisah HKR dan RM100,000-00.

Ada 2 lagi kisah duit RM100,000-00.

Bagi peminat TV3 suku dan Utusan Meloya, mereka mungkin tak pernah tahu kisah tahyul seekor anak badak terguling-guling dalam bilik hotel di Dubai yg sewaannya RM100,000-00 semalaman dilangsaikan dgn duit rakyat. Itu kalau dia berguling-guling dan berendam semalaman. Kalau 3 malam dah berapa? Tapi takpa lah, mungkin jugak Kaldai Karpet yg belanja.

Bagi yg kurang ambik pot pula, ada satu lagi kisah karut-marut. Pernah dengar nama Zahida Menggatal? Nama Zahida Menggatal mungkin asing. Yang mereka tahu ialah Zahida Rafik yg seksi dan bergetah melekit-lekit tu, kan?

Baiklah, Zahida Menggatal ini ialah teman wanita kepada Shafie Menggatal. Ada jugak kisah duit RM100,000-00 di sini. Shafie Menggatal ialah orang Sabah. Tak tau la pulak samada Shafie bin Menggatal atau pun cuma nama jolokan bagi orang yg berasal dari Menggatal, Sabah.

Namun telah diketahui umum Shafie Menggatal ini telah termenggatal dan mungkin telah terjolok? Kah kah kah!

Sekali jolok kena pau RM100,000-00. 4 kali jolok kena pau RM400,000-00.

Apa punya style jolok ni? Kah kah kah

Stadium Merdeka 3 jam kena bayar RM100,000-00. 

Bayangkan kalau Shafie Menggatal larat membalon 3 jam? RM300,000-00!

Takkan membalon sampai 3 jam.... Kah kah kah!!!

Kah kah kah!

Man Utd 2 - 1 Liverpool, Patrice Evra Is A Red

When a diminutive Frenchman was hauled off after 45 minutes of his first Manchester derby, not many amongst the United fans in the crowd would have imagined that the same player would go on to become captain – albeit in absence of Nemanja Vidic – and develop a cult following at the club.

Seven years ago today, Patrice Evra put pen to paper on a deal worth £5.5m that sealed his arrival to Manchester United from Ligue 1 side Monaco, the same outfit with which he had finished second best in the 2004 Champions League final. The last stage of Europe’s elite club competition is probably likely to remain a wonderful exception in Monaco’s history but, since his arrival at United, Evra went on to play on club’s football most important stage another three times – winning against Chelsea in Moscow, before surrendering to Barcelona in 2009 and 2011.

Considering the torrid start to his English career he had endured, and despite some shaky performances over the last two seasons, the contribution Evra has offered to the club – and not only in terms of trophies – is such that he can genuinely be considered one of Ferguson’s best purchases since the turn of the century.

As confident at launching into marauding runs forward as he is when marking a direct opponent, Evra proved to be the perfect replacement for Denis Irwin, as he saw off competition from Gabriel Heinze and countryman Mikael Silvestre, growing slowly, yet ever so steadily, into making the left-back position his own.

Over the last few years Evra has attracted unwanted limelight for some poor performances, particularly considering the high standard United fans had become accustomed to since the Frenchman had become a regular in the 2006-07 season. Despite captaining the club last season, his showings convinced Sir Alex Ferguson to bring in Alex Buttner during the summer transfer window to provide a challenge for the Frenchman. A challenge to which Evra has risen for, while not reaching the peak of a few seasons ago, Evra’s performances have definitely improved this year.

Last season was particularly difficult for the Frenchman, who was involved in the disgusting racist row sparked by Luis Suarez’s comments during the game at Anfield. Evra came through that rough patch slightly affected on the pitch perhaps, but with an even bigger status among the fans.

What has made the man who candidly admitted that “playing for Manchester United was something I was not prepared for” a very popular figure at Old Trafford, though is his attitude towards the club. In an era when homegrown players are as rare as tabloid pages without scandals and where many players have their heads turned by the prospect of bigger wages, Evra has wholly embraced the culture of the club, in a way reminiscing of another illustrious Frenchman.

With the exception of Eric Cantona, very few foreign players (foreign in the loose, footballing sense, which considers Irish and Welsh players as local) have displayed such burning passion towards the club. In fact, Evra’s endorsement of what fans simply describe as “being a Red” surpasses even some of his British teammates’.

Forget about the Craig Bellamy-type “I always wanted to play for this club” line, Evra has demonstrated his feelings for United in many interviews, as well as on the pitch. Sometimes, as it was the case when Liverpool visited Old Trafford last season, the line between player and fans became too blurred for his own sake but while that sparked Sir Alex’s ire, it only increased Patrice’s popularity with the fans.

When, in twenty or thirty years time, United fans will be talking about a left-back that loved the club and won four league titles, four Champions League, a FIFA Club World Cup and three league cups, younger generations will struggle to believe that it all began with a shaky 45 minutes against Manchester City.

Merci, Patrice

Man Utd 2 - 1 Liverpool, The Man Who Started The Manchester vs Liverpool Rivalry

Madu tualang power! Click here
“Liverpool were always the ones and nothing will change,” said Ferguson at this weekend’s press conference. “It’s nothing to do with our position in the league. It’s about the history, geography. What’s his name, who built the ship canal? Mason? No it wasnae Mason… It’s coming… It begins with an A. Adamson. Correct? Daniel Adamson was the engineer behind the construction of the canal. He took all the industry away from Liverpool to Manchester. From that day on, the rivalry between the cities was there. Therefore, it’s not just football; geographically, there is fantastic competition. Of course, being the two most successful clubs, that has intensified over the years and that won’t change. If we two were bottom of the league or in the second division it would be the same.”

Daniel Adamson left school at the age of thirteen and became an apprentice to Timothy Hackworth, engineer to the Stockton and Darlington Railway, with whom he went on to serve as a draughtsman and engineer. By 1850, he had risen to become general manager of the Stockton and Darlington engine works and moved to become manager of Heaton Foundry in Stockport. He specialised in engine and boiler making, initially following designs created by Hackworth, making and exporting the renowned “Manchester Boilers”.

Liverpool were one of the world’s leading ports at the time, whilst Manchester was booming in the cotton trade thanks to mills. Raw cotton imported to England was spun in the mills of Manchester and it was said that Manchester clothed a quarter of the world. However, the material all had to come from over 30 miles away through Liverpool, and the Port of Liverpool set high charges on the importation of the raw materials destined for our cotton mills. Manchester decided that something had to be done, and that’s when the idea of the Manchester Ship Canal first came about, with the aim of by-passing Liverpool to import to the raw cotton.

Adamson lived in Didsbury and in 1882 arranged a meeting at his home to discuss the Manchester Ship Canal project, attended by the mayors of Manchester and surrounding towns, leaders of commerce and industry, bankers and financiers. Adamson was elected chairman of the provisional committee promoting the Ship Canal, and was at the forefront in pushing the scheme through Parliament in the face of intense opposition from railway companies and port interests in Liverpool.

The ship canal was given the go ahead and construction began in 1887. Adamson died at home in 1890 and is buried at Southern Cemetery in Manchester. The ship canal wasn’t in operation until 1894 though so, sadly, he never saw the Ship Canal in use.
