Footballer Of The Year 2009 (Steven Gerrard, Liverpool)


From ESPN Soccernet,
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has been voted England’s Footballer of the Year by the Football Writers’ Association (FWA).

The England midfielder topped the poll of journalists ahead of Manchester United duo Ryan Giggs and Wayne Rooney to win the prestigious accolade, which has been running since 1948.

The 28-year-old Anfield hero has scored 23 goals in all competitions this season, the best tally of his career, and is leading Liverpool’s continuing challenge to Premier League leaders Manchester United as the Reds bid to land their first league title for 19 years.

The newly crowned footballer of the year said: “I’m delighted but I’m a little bit surprised. When you look at the quality of the players there are in this league, it’s a great privilege to win this kind of award.”

Reds manager Rafael Benitez had nothing but praise for his skipper, who is the first Liverpool player to win the award since John Barnes in 1990, and said it was just reward for all Gerrard has achieved this season.

“I’m really pleased for Steven,” Benitez told the club’s website. “It is fantastic for him because he was competing with a lot of good players.

“For him to be named player of the year is massive credit to him and shows just how much he has achieved.”

Gerrard will receive the award at the FWA’s gala dinner in London on May 29. The Huyton-born player follows in the illustrious footsteps of Stanley Matthews, Bobby Moore, George Best and more recently Thierry Henry, Frank Lampard and Cristiano Ronaldo.

Steve Bates, chairman of the FWA, said: “Steven’s performances this season have been of the highest quality. His drive and desire have underpinned Liverpool’s Premier League title challenge and ensured a tight finish to the season.

“Steven is clearly in his prime and quite rightly rated one of the finest midfield players of his generation, and the FWA are delighted to honour his contribution to club and country.”

Second-placed Giggs was named the Professional Footballers’ Association Player of the Year in April.

p/s – am proud of Stevie, am proud of The Reds! Even though Liverpool might lose the title to Manchester United, but for this award, we beat them! Hua9!

Dear God

Dear God by Avenged Sevenfold
(this song is dedicated from my beloved Mr.Gonzales) 😀

A lonely road, crossed another cold state line
Miles away from those I love purpose hard to find
While I recall all the words you spoke to me
Can’t help but wish that I was there
Back where I’d love to be, oh yeah

Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
To hold her when I’m not around,
When I’m much too far away
We all need that person who can be true to you
But I left her when I found her
And now I wish I’d stayed
Cause I’m lonely and I’m tired
I’m missing you again oh no
Once again

There’s nothing here for me on this barren road
There’s no one here while the city sleeps
And all the shops are closed
Can’t help but think of the times I’ve had with you
Pictures and some memories will have to help me through, oh yeah

Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
To hold her when I’m not around,
When I’m much too far away
We all need that person who can be true to you
I left her when I found her
And now I wish I’d stayed
Cause I’m lonely and I’m tired
I’m missing you again oh no
Once again

Some search, never finding a way
Before long, they waste away
I found you, something told me to stay
I gave in, to selfish ways
And how I miss someone to hold
When hope begins to fade…

A lonely road, crossed another cold state line
Miles away from those I love purpose hard to find

Dear God the only thing I ask of you is
To hold her when I’m not around,
When I’m much too far away
We all need the person who can be true to you
I left her when I found her
And now I wish I’d stayed
Cause I’m lonely and I’m tired
I’m missing you again oh no
Once again

Woke up this morning and as usual, had ‘text-messaging’ activity with Mr.Gonzales. He said last night, he wanted to send me this song through email, but couldn’t coz the size of the MP3 was too big. 10mb or sumthing.. So, he begged me to listen to it.. I did and ‘BEST!’ It’s about missing someone.. I think I can cry listening to this song!

He said again, he kept listening to this song during our tough moments.. Fights, arguments, misunderstanding and etc (which I think most of them were comin from me.. huhu). As quoted by him, ‘gado tpi sayang kan..’ Heh, I Love You too, cyg!!

* ha.. sape nk muntah, gie muntah.. 😛 *

Am Trying My Best…

cute-cat1

Am trying my best to be a better thinker.

Am trying my best to rationalize things before jumping into conclusions.

Am trying my best to be more positive.

Am trying my best to be less egoistic.

Am trying my best to be strong for my own sake and people I love around me.

Am trying my best to see the good behind the bad things.

Am trying my best to believe that I’m better than people who keep complaining and whining about life.

Well, it’s a tough process. Since these are not my nature.

See, I did it again. Complained.
