United 1 - 6 City : Theater of dreams turn to theater of nightmares


Even City player cant believe that they beat United at their own ground by that margin.

Tetiba ramai pulak penyokong City sms & comment @ fb or tweet to me. And i thought they were Liverpool, Chelsea or Arsenal fan. But of course.... Sapa x nak amik peluang utk bash United fan when their team lost like that.

A lot has been said after the game ended. The shift of power from the red half of Manchester to the blue half. City is now the team to beat in the BPL. How United want to avenge their lost to Barca when their own noisy neighbour can double the score Barca beat them. And etc..

And this is my comment....
It was United worst ever performance even worst than lost to Southampton 6-3 or Newcastle 5-1 or even Chelsea with the same scoreline. Why? The defense played horrible. The midfield lost the ground and lets face it, Fergie got his game plan wrong.

To field Jonny Evans when Phil Jones has shown in recent game that he deserve the CB position is wrong. And Evans of course graduated from the United academy are proven inconsistence has finally put the nail to his own coffin. If i'm Fergie, i will limit his contribution to league cup games or reserves game as he is not worthy of the United jersey. Even Wes Brown is better than him.

United always was and always will under the mgmt of Fergie a slow starter in the league. United will start the ground running come december and hit top form in March onwards. But this year a bit different. Maybe due to the win in the Charity shield over City, United start very....very strong reminiscent of Chelsea last season. And now United are slowing down or in my word - hibernate. From the City game, you can see that half of the team were not performing. Nani, Anderson & Smalling mcm off form. Then the worst came from the senior member of the team - Ferdinand & Evra. Aku rasa Fadhli Shaas lagi bagus dari diorg if considering that performance as a guideline. Only Rooney, Fletcher & Young shown the determination to outplay City.

Welbeck & De Gea played ok. They can up their games but their team mates let them down.

Ape silap game plan Fergie? The formation is ok except for the inclusion of Evans rather than Jones. United did control the game in the 1st half. But all changes when Evans sent off. Fergie then change Nani & Anderson with Hernandez & Jones. With that changes, Smalling move to CB, Jones to right back. Fletcher played in the middle of a 3 midfield with Welbeck played in the left flank, Young change side to the right, Rooney become the attacking midfielder & Hernandez played alone up front.

By that time by right, Fergie should do damage limitation by fielding Park instead of Hernandez and change Welbeck with Berba or Hernandez. But knowing Fergie very well, he do not like being defeated by City, he field an attacking minded team rather than soaking the pressure and counter attack. And that is why 3 of the City goal came in the 70 - 90 min.

How about City performance. Lets just say that they capitalize on United bad performance. But I can praise a few of City player that shine during the game. They are Balotelli, Dzeko, Milner, Yaya Toure & of course David Silva. He is City biggest asset to become a challenger to United title as well as Champions league. Mancini is building the team around him. Just like Messi to Barcelona. And I have to admit, that is what lacking in United now.

Its like a nightmare watching United being defeated like that at OT. Nasib baik kalah dengan City with that scoreline. If kalah dgn Arsenal or Chelsea or worst Liverpool with that scoreline, it will be the worst nightmares I will ever have.

But its not the time to push the panic button yet. This is United first defeat of the season anyway. And we are only at the end of October. There are ample of time for the team and especially those who played bad in that game to buck up and show the world that they are way better than that. Fergie will know how to regroup and rise back from the defeat and try not to repeat what has happen to Chelsea last season.

Embarrasingly painful experience

Aku tak pernah warded in hospital. Let alone being operate. Melawat orang sakit and berkampung di hospital, done that before.

Tapi on the 4th October, all that has change. Aku kena operate hari Selasa & warded sampai hari Jumaat di SDMC. Lama jugak rasanya. Well basically, on the day aku kena operate tu, aku demam. So it take my body 1 day to recover from fever & by friday the doc let me discharge.

Knape aku kena operate? Thats why I put the title of this post mcm ni. Coz i got an abscess that need to be operate to take it out. And the embarrasing part is that its located at my butt. In another word - bisul kat punggung. It may sound funny to a few, tp for those yg pernah experience it... It hurt. Hurt like hell. You cant sit properly, you cant lie down properly & bile dia dah masak, nak jalan pon sakit gile.

Dan aku jugak experience for the first time kena usung on the wheelchair. Trust me , I dont like the feeling. But due to pain, kena naik whilcha gak la. Patutnye aku warded on Monday, tapi due to no bed or room available, diorg suruh aku balik & come on tuesday morning to be warded. Tapi aku still x dpt bilik that tuesday morning until my op completed, baru aku dpt bilik.

Actually aku patut dpt 1 bed per room, tp due to xde kekosongan. Aku dpt bilik for two. Jadilah... Daripada xde bilik langsung.

Aku dok kat wad 586 north tower with my bed close to the window. Nice view by the way.

Aku kena full bius time op. Okla, drpd aku sedar time op or jd cam crite awake yg Hayden Christensen sedar masa kena op and rasa sakitnya...pergh. Nasib baik aku xde experience tu. Aku schedule for op at 1:30 and by that time aku dah kena bwk dlm op theater (OT - not Old Trafford) so call waiting room. Tunggu smpai pkl 1:40 then all the doc smpai, terus masuk OT. 1st doc inject aku dgn bius and x sampai 10 saat, aku pengsan. Aku sedar pkl 2:50 and masa tu aku dah kat OT waiting room blk.

The 1st day dressing was the worst experience. Actually sakitnya sikit je. Tapi perasaan takut bila la nak rasa sakit tu yg buat 1st dressing tu mcm menakutkan. Staff nurse yg buat dressing tu ckp 'lubang' bisul aku kecik je. About 1.5cm deep & 1cm in diameter. Then dia fobiakan aku by saying that normally, lubang bisul tu is about 4cm deep. Wargh!!. Aku x dpt bygkan la sakitnya kena dressing kalo dlm mcm tu.

Ni gmbr tgn kiri aku yg diorg dok drip antibiotik masuk vein aku. Ada 2 jenis antibiotik aku kena drip every 3 hour. Aku cuma dpt bezakan 2 jenis tu by botol dia. 1 botol plastik & 1 botol kaca. Yg botol kaca tu azab sket nak abiskan sbb selalunya nurse kena dtg check sbb x turun. Bile x turun tu, yg vein aku sakit gile. Nasib baik x bengkak. If bengkak, kena tukar tangan plak. Cucuk tempat lain.

The nurses are helpful. Semua baik je. Aku rasa on the 1st & 2nd day je aku cam ngengada sket. Kejap2 panggil nurse nak tu, nak ni. Smpai nak ikatkan gaun pas mandi & rendam air garam pon aku suruh diorg. Hehe. Aku gak ada physio yg dtg everyday suruh aku excercise dpn dia. Ada 1 day tu smpai 2x kali dia dtg. Aku syak dia suka aku, tp biasalah... Aku ni dok prasan mmg #1. Hehe. Sama gak mcm aku perasan yg ada nurse suka aku. Tp aku still ingat anak bini aku. Hehe.

Erma been helpful to me. Kesian kat dia sebab on Monday before the op, dialah yg drive aku g sana, sini. Then kena tunggu aku masa kat OT lounge sampai la aku dah pas op. Ikut aku masa nak warded. Then everyday dtg tgk aku. My highlight of each day was to see her & Ayra dtg visit aku. I wish they can stay with me @ the ward but then again it will not be cozy for them. So aku suruh diorg blk tidor kt rumah. To those yg dtg melawat, I will remember your visit. And to those who wish for my speedy recovery, I would like to thank you guys.

Lepas je discharge tu, aku kena dtg everyday utk buat dressing. Smpai la last Saturday when the doc, Dr. Mohd Hanis said ble buat dressing sendiri kat rumah coz lubang tu dah nak tutup. Alhamdulillah. And I will have another follow up aptmnt with him next Saturday.

The reason aku dpt abscess tu x clear. It can be that aku dok tmpt x bersih. Or anything. Tp bkn sebab aku dok kat atas bantal, ok? hehe. Suka aku nak maklumkan yang aku bersyukur sebab aku ada insurans. Sbb insuranslah aku mampu buat op & dok kat SDMC. Actually company aku keja pon cover. Tp leceh sket sbb kena setelkan paperwork dulu, then baru ble proceed dgn op and etc. Kalo xde insurans, mana mampu aku nak tanggung kos dressing hari2, doc consultation semua tu. Eventho kena byr gak about 10% of the total cost, but jika nak bandingkan kena bayar semua, it worth it la.

Lupa another thing. The food was nice & sedap. To be frank, aku x pantang. Kalo MIL aku tau, bisul la telinga aku jawabnya. Hehe. The cafe @ ground floor pon sedap gak makanannya. Harga dia pon sedap gak. Bayangkan sampai Erma sanggup nak breakfast kat cafe tu semata2 nak mkn omellatte dia. Tp mmg nmpk mcm sedap jer. Lol.

Its an experience yg aku susah nak lupakan. Tapi aku rather kena op mcm ni rather than sebab sakit jantung or etc. Those yg chances of survival minimal. At least aku still ada chance utk redeem all my mistake and start a new life. Cant wait to see the nurses.. Eh.. The doctor utk hopefully my final check up and can be declare fully recover. InsyaAllah.

The Night Eternal


Due to what happen to my family recently plus the festive season, I've completely forgot about this book. Early of the year I did mention that the 3rd chapter of the Strain trilogy will be publish on 1st Sept 2011. Luckily, the launch has been delayed to 25th Oct 2011 (according to Harpercollins). Lucky in the scent that I did not miss the launch of the finale of this great trilogy.

So... While waiting anxiously for the book to be publish, I've copy an additional synopsis for the book from Harpercollins here for you & my pleasure....

"From the authors of the instant "New York Times" bestsellers "The Strain" and "The Fall" comes the final volume in one of the most electrifying thriller series in years
It’s been two years since the vampiric virus was unleashed in "The Strain", and the entire world now lies on the brink of annihilation. There is only night as nuclear winter blankets the land, the sun filtering through the poisoned atmosphere for two hours each day—the perfect environment for the propagation of vampires.
There has been a mass extermination of humans, the best and the brightest, the wealthy and the influential, orchestrated by the Master—an ancient vampire possessed of unparalleled powers—who selects survivors based on compliance. Those humans who remain are entirely subjugated, interred in camps, and separated by status: those who breed more humans, and those who are bled for the sustenance of the Master’s vast army.
The future of humankind lies in the hands of a ragtag band of freedom fighters—Dr. Eph Goodweather, former head of the Centers for Disease Control’s biological threats team; Dr. Nora Martinez, a fellow doctor with a talent for dispatching the undead; Vasiliy Fet, the colorful Russian exterminator; and Mr. Quinlan, the half-breed offspring of the Master who is bent on revenge. It’s their job to rescue Eph’s son, Zack, and overturn this devastating new world order. But good and evil are malleable terms now, and the Master is most skilled at preying on the weaknesses of humans.
Now, at this critical hour, there is evidence of a traitor in their midst. . . . And only one man holds the answer to the Master’s demise, but is he one who can be trusted with the fate of the world? And who among them will pay the ultimate sacrifice—so that others may be saved?"
