Be forewarn: Expect even lesser today.
Today is match day. The day Manchester United ‘really’ kicked off their pre-season Asia tour. And you know what? OHMYGOD! I was stucked in the jam for like 3 hours plus. Arrived at the Bukit Jalil Stadium nearly 6pm! 1/2 hour late. I blamed the police. There were plenty of empty parking spaces and yet they shooed many of us away. Grrrr…
So I ended up like yesterday. Standing at the gate entrance. Sad eh. RM98 ticket and you get to stand at the entrance only. Wuahahaha If only I knew, I will get the RM58 ticket. DUH!!!!
Here are some of the photos I took.
NOTE: Shadows on the photos might be caused by people’s head & shoulders and also vignetting. I’m no pro. Kekeke
Scholes, Anderson, Rooney and who’s no. 23?
Hi Van de Sar! Hehe
My favorite shot for match day. Ogling at their asses. Wuahahaha
I can see Rooney’s flabby stomach from here. Hehe
Who’s no. 17? Nani? I think he was booed. I was too daze at that time.
Fans posing for the photographer.
You know you’re famous when you see yourself on the wide screen.
Half-time. This is the only time I managed to go INTO the stadium. FULL HOUSE!
Sea of REDS!
Please ignore the interference (referring to black shadows). Just concentrate on the lad in the middle. That’s Michael Owen making his debut.
Ben Foster in action! YAWN.
So that was it. I left the stadium with 15 minute to spare. I’m hot. I’m angry. I don’t feel alright.
You know what’s the funny part? We’re not allowed to bring food and drinks in the stadium ground. And yet during half-time, many people were buying their food through the fence hole! I’m wondering whether we’re the ‘happy’ jailers or they’re the smart sellers. Let me reiterate. What’s the point here?
So final score (read from internet later on)… see? I’m not that interested. I feel more of them on the TV then in the stadium looking at them live.
psst… Malaysia Boleh!
