Gomo Kelate Gomo.

I can call myself as a great football fan. I always like Barcelona fc and Argentina National football team because the way they play football. They always play possession football or short pass football. Every player in the team must contribute in order to play possession football but mostly the midfielder will dictate or orchestrate the play. Everything must come from the midfield.  They move the ball from the defender through the midfielder and they will wait until there is a room for the striker to penetrate. Mostly the ball will be moving just outside the penalty box. The best thing is, watching them split the opponent’s defender with their through pass. Man, if that happened, I would just say Wow. My jaws are like will falling down.

I always talk about football with friends. We spend hours wasting our saliva just to talk about 22 players chasing a ball.  Everybody has their own view of football. Everybody has their own favorites club. Some like Arsenal and some like others. But a good player is a good player. Even we hate a particular football club; we will admit the truth about their players. We always reason with each other.  Most of us will respect other’s point of view. At the end of the day it is just a game.

I don’t hate the club that I hate most. I think the reasons I hate the team is because of the way they play and mostly because of their fanatical fan. I hate fanatic. If their father or mother comes from that town, I could understand that. If they were born there, there is no reason to argue then. But none of that suit them. They don’t have any reason and at the end they will say it is what it is. When their team play defensive (read: 11 players in the box) they say it is tactical. But when they play against defensive team they will just keep on cursing and say how ugly and unfortunate for them to play against a defensive team. Well, they just cannot stand to taste their own medicine.

Kelantan football club and Malaysia football team will always be my club. Others, I just support them because the way they play. Call me not a loyal fan, i don’t care. It is loyal to leave a girlfriend and it is not loyal to change football club? It is just my perception. Nobody is right nobody is wrong.

Judging from this video, Malaysia football will have bright future. I even feel some goose bump when i hear the supporters screamed after the goal. Mangat nyohhhh. It was so great. If the stadium always crowded, it will automatically lift up the standard of the game. The people always cheer the team and looking forward for Friday night live. The citizen will love their country or state. So don’t worry about the identity crisis like we have nowadays. It will bring back the happening scene while was in primary school. We the kids 11-12 years old talked about football like we were an adult. The name Mario gomez, Hashim Mustafa, Tuan Kamree were our heroes. No Messi no Riquelme. We even brought the team Muffler to school everyday. We even collected the player sticker.  If one of us saw those players in town, he will be like the luckiest person in the world.

I doubt the scenario happen to kids these day. Everything is EPL. All i hear is Torres and C. Ronaldo. We can blame globalisation but how about Boca Junior and other South American club.  Their fans are so passionate like you would not believe. So I am asking you, to make yourself available for the Friday night live for the sake of the future, so the younger generation will not have a problem with identity crisis or wannabe problem.
