Sorry for minimal updates, been busy as the semester comes near to a close. Alot of deadlines to meet. There had been World Cup qualifying matches for the past week and I managed to wake up for a little bit of the French match which helped them to qualify for the finals finally.

Remember George 'Oppong' Weah? He used to play for some big clubs like AC Milan and Chelsea. I was reading the papers regarding his involvement for the Liberia's presidential elections. Interesting! Never thought a footballer can become a president? I also heard the election is the first ever democratic election since the end of a 14-year-old civil war! That is a long time! I still remember he was awarded the Europoean, African and FIFA World Player of the year in 1995! Incredible achievement. Although I have no background regarding Liberia or regarding its political systems, I hope he can help bring his nation through and prosper if he wins.

Goal! is a football movie and if you don't watch it, you are not a football fan! Hehe! Well, when I saw the preview, it seems to be more of a Newcastle United movie to me. Still, the tonnes of footballing stars featured in the movie including coach Rafael Benitez should make this a must see for football fans regardless of how boring the ratings should rate it. The stars in the movie are all unknown to me but I think there is this female actress who looks stunning! Well, not too sure, just my first impression when I saw her.

You have David Beckham, Kieron Dyer, Raul Gonzalez, Patrick Kluivert, Alan Shearer and Zinedine Zidane in the movie. Well, yes, all are Newcastle United and Real Madrid stars which are the two teams I supported. Pretty weird since Real Madrid and Newcastle United have no connections at all in footballing terms apart from two transfers involving Woodgate and Owen. I will try to catch it in Singapore if it is possible since they had been showing it at least for over a week. Is it in the big screens in Malaysia already?

Matches of the weekend:
Atletico Madrid VS. Real Madrid
Deportivo La Coruna VS. Barcelona

Now, nothing about football. I read about Daniel Craig who is going to be the next James Bond! The debut moviet will be "Casino Royale," based on the first of the Bond books written by Ian Fleming and due for release worldwide on November 17, 2006 after filming in the Czech Republic, the Bahamas, Italy and Britain. I am not a Bond fan and I had fallen asleep in the previous few movies by Brosnan.

"Casino Royale" is the 21st Bond movie to date. Bond movies in the past starred Sean Connery, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton and Pierce Brosnan. Actors Barry Nelson and David Niven also portrayed the British agent for unofficial versions of the series whose creation was not attributed to Ian Fleming. Hopefully, Daniel Craig will make Bond movies as good as the Sean Connery days and we need really beautiful, stunning, gorgeous and sexy Bond girls. I always thought Bond girls enjoy the same fame as Playboy girls. Haha!
