El Fenomeno's all around the world review (Apr 2012)



EPL
Simply enjoying the twists and turns and the bookmaking influences. Wigan’s win wasn’t totally unexpected. The top team with such a long win streak was bound to cockup some game on the way, the fact they didn’t turn up for much of the game was surprising, or maybe not.

Stay tuned while the Mancheter teams fight it out. Kun-Carlitos partnership should be a joy to watch.

**At press conference before Norwich's game, Quizzed about Super-Mario, Roberto Mancini's Nokia phone has a familiar message beep, he checks it and tells reporters that its Mario and that he wants to play tomorrow. the media breaks into laughter! good one Roberto hahahahaha




Italy
Can Antonio Conte follow the steps of Pep in becoming yet another former captain to win a league title in his debut season & repay my faith with his reign and clinch the Serie?

Spain
If I got it correct, Jose has always managed to clinch the domestic title in his 2nd season with all his teams, be it Porto, Chelsea, Inter. So Real should clinch it and break Super-Barca’s strangleold.

UCL
RM vs Bayern – This is the sort of fixture I relish, a real Champions league clash. I must say there hasn’t been many this season. The kind of players that will be on display and the rich history of these 2 team in the past. Giovanni Elber, Effenberg, Scholl, Jeremies, Khan, Lizarazu, Sagnol (Roque santa cruz) vs the Raul-Morientes led Real in the 1999 & 2001 clashes. So this is huge and something to look forward. To.

Singapore
DPMM Brunei– Unbelievable, with 2 years out of competitive football.

Harimau Muda – Interesting team after I finally watch them in action. Wan Zack Hiakel is one to watch.

Home United
Shi Jiayi at centreback? Coach Lee is really creative. Qiu-naldo remains lazy but magical. Good to see Indra coming back. Shotaro Ihata is quality. Home vs Chonburi coming up soon in AFC Cup is be great to watch. Always good to see local teams pit their wits against regional teams.

SAFFC
Great disappointment. Same old criticism on Fazrul but doubts creeping in on some of the higher profile players as well. Mislav Karolgan is a delight usually.

Tampines
Still coming to terms with the changes in foreigners who are still adapting. Should get better, lets hope ALK will be able to star in the league soon

Balestier
Darren Stewart returning to his own den and leading the team well. Leadership of Paul Cunningham is still key.

Geylang
Michael King is a real deal. A Englishman who doesn’t play like one looking his at technique and cultured left foot. Good to see more younger players coming through.
Albirex
Good to be watching the play of Okuyama, Shimono and the No 10.

Hougang
Webb is still entertaining and firing. Ante Barac looks an excellent signing and Coach Nenad has built on the strong team spirit from Aide Iskandar’s days. The pitch at Hougang is probably the best turf on catch good football.

Young Lions
Sirina Camara at centreback is weird. Or is it a one-off?Yes I did feel he plays like Eric Abidal last season but need not put him at centreback to confirm my thoughts right haha?

Comments of Tanjong Pagar, Gombak, Young Lions, Woodlands on hold till I watch more of them.


China
Nicolas Anelka’s player-coach appointment is crazy.
