fcb copa del rey 2017

3 for FCB!

In the midst of worries about the effects of martial law in the region, I did still have time to be updated with my football team. I’m thrilled about their three-straight Copa del Rey wins and stunning play. But, I’m also sad about Luis Enrique’s leaving. All the best ones leave sooner, noh? Nonetheless there’s…

Barca v PSG: 6-1

I feel the euphoria! All Barca fans do, with this! Unbelievable and they did it!!! Another record breaker for the Catalans! The best team ever!!! Woohoo!!! (Is Luis Enrique still leaving after this though? I hope not.)

Goings on in the Games capital

Game spirit’s really heating up in Rio. Philippines won a silver at, surprise, surprise, weightlifting (such is the trend these days- Filipinos are winning in sports that mainly showcase sheer physical strength and stamina e.g. boxing, martial arts and the like)!

Seeing that, it may be why Japan lost a bit of their usual focus (as also mentioned by their coach Norio Sasaki in the after-game conference) but to me they’re already a winner…

WWC 2015 Final take two: U.S v Japan

It’s a rematch!!!  Japan’s win in 2011 was unexpected, which stunned albeit in different ways both the U.S team and Japan.  In this World Cup however, Japan has shown once again it’s truly a formidable  team.  The U.S are surely out for revenge. There are now several predictions with the U.S. taking the win.  But as…

Back to the future: China PR v USA

Sixteen years on since their iconic Women’s World Cup Final showdown, USA and China finally met again at this level. That match at the end of last century ended scoreless before USA prevailed on penalties in front of a record crowd. And briefly it looked like the dearth of goals would continue until Carli Lloyd’s…
