Short Talk:

Goodbye to watching football. See you again in 4 years.

In a way, I'm kinda glad that the World Cup is finally over. At least now there should be some normality restored in my life.

Signs You're Suffering From World Cup Withdrawal Symptoms

The World Cup's over but are you still feeling the football fever? Here are top 9 signs you might be suffering from World Cup Withdrawal Symptoms.


9. You wake up for no reason at all at 3am, feeling as if you should be doing something instead of sleeping.


8. You log on to "sport bookie online" to check out today's odds, but got annoyed when the matches shown are all by teams no one has ever heard of like "Dynamo Moscow" or "Ajax Amsterdam". What is this... some kinda detergent joke?


7. When your boss or lecturer explained something to you that you don't understand, you said to him "Sir! You keep on talking but I'm like that French goalkeeper. Catch no ball!"


6. You order Swedish Meatballs from IKEA, and you said to the waiter "I take Sweden, you give me half ball."

5. You go for Thai massage, and you told the masseuse "I take Thailand, I give you two balls."


4. When you're faced with a great difficulty in life, you find yourself deeply pondering"Hmmm... what would Shebby do in this situation?"


3. If something's blocking your way, you don't walk over it like you should.

You DIVE over it like Superman.


2. When your friend gives you a friendly pat on the back, you don't just look and smile at him.

You fall down dramatically, clutch your knee and cry like a bitch.

"Owww.... Pain! Pain!"


1. When someone said something mean against you, you don't just walk away.

You headbutt him right in the chest.

Now that Zidane's retired, at least he can find comfort knowing that he could always work as a Shaolin Monk, headbutting every single friggin thing out of his way.

Unregistered

ZZ's the best...

Unregistered

i guess Zidane thinks he has done it all.. except one thing that in his career or anybody else's career they can never acheive.. getting red carded on purpose during a finals to a World Cup game that they could potientially win if they had him on the team and the whole nation is counting on him..i mean, like Maradona,Pele all this people can never have done it.. Zidane did it..This should go down in the books of record.

Unregistered

I guess Zidane figured " If i'm gonna end my career, might as well end it with a bang..or a headbutt"


Unregistered

hahaha..top 10 should have no 10.Wher is No 10. Kenny my man.

Unregistered

nice one!!!!!

Unregistered

Another classic :)

Unregistered

another history in soccer... ;)

Unregistered

Dude, not sure if you are right to say that Dynamo Moscow and Ajax Amsterdam are teams no one ever heard of...

Ajax Amsterdam are former EUropean Cup winner... and Dynamo Moscow has been in the European Cup competition....

Unregistered

My sympathies are with Zidane.

Unregistered

Do the Zidane; Classic!

Unregistered

yalar just because YOU haven't heard of them doesn't mean others have not!
REAL footie fans who watch football regularly and not only during the World Cup will know Dynamo Moscow and Ajax Amsterdam lah...

Unregistered

Zizou did it because Materazzi had been harrassing him throughout the match and he lost his cool when Materrazzi pinched his nipple and called him a "terrorist" as Zidane walked away.

Zidane had a mad streak in him and had been known to exercise some violence against offending opponents. Well I am sure if Materrazzi did not provoke him, nothing would have happen.

Zidane should also understand this is his last match and just take thing easy. Shout back some choice words at Matarrazzi or pinch his ass while the referee is not looking and let it be.

Unregistered

I'm sure Kenny heard of Ajax & Dynamo, he just making fun of it. No big deal.

Unregistered

Materazzi deserves more than a headbutt, this is one human scumbag out of a team of dirty , it's a shame Italy won the cup, the whole world hates them for their diving and whining.

no, I did not lose any money betting against them

Unregistered

HAHHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

I admit to symptom no.9!!! I was wide awake at 3am this morning!!! And I miss Shebby's comments too, not his predictions though coz they are way off sometimes. LOL!
I knew that headbutt is going to be at no.1!!! :P

Zidane's headbutt is absolutely world-class. And he gets Golden Ball for it. Bravo!


FORZA ITALIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Unregistered

Zidane maybe shouldn't have done it.. but being abused on account of his race in such a manner IS kind of hard to put up with. Still, like I say, maybe he should have been as thick skinned as *you*, this being the World cup and all that.

BTW, Kenny, you must be dreaming to think that this is all over for the next 4 years. They broadcast the European Cup live on Astro too...

Unregistered

Though I have been supporting Italy yet I think Materazzi is a piece of shit! He deserves sthg more than just a headbutt!! Poor thing for getting a red card in his farewell match! If he wasn't given with a red card, the French has higher possibility in winning the match.

Poor French..

Forza Italia~~

Unregistered

Wah, you really dive on the ground to take the pic ah? How many time you try to get a perfect shot ah?

.... and yes! Zidane rawks!!!!

Good job!

Unregistered

Football fever's not over, not by miles. Here are 3 simple reasons why:

1. For the next few days the whole world will be talking about Zizou's headbutt, speculating what 'Ma De Nazi' said to piss Zizou off.

2. During the next few weeks there'll be plenty of transfer speculation involving players from top clubs, eg. Man Utd (Chrisissygay Ronalpuss, Van Nistelrooy), etc.

3. Before you know it the Premier League season would have started, along with Serie A, Primera Liga, Bundesliga, Champions League, UEFA Cup, FA Cup, League Cup, Scottish Premier League, A-League, J-League, K-League, S-League, M-League, Similan Island League!!!

OK, scratch the last few leagues, but my point is, there's still plenty more football to come, and I can't bloody wait.

Unregistered

damn, u really need a life if u start to think abt shebby everytime u face difficulty in life,LOL!

Unregistered

good job dude`~!

Unregistered

i remember years ago in this tv series "mind your language" and these guys in the show were saying that this weekend, they were going for the big fight.

and the english teacher said, "are you guys going for a boxing match?"

And the guys said, "Nope, we're going for the football (soccer) match."

Lol!!!

Unregistered

it is unfair u show the headbutt only kenny!

u never watch the vee deo properly.

i still cant get it to load on my blog but i know what they said on the field ok!!

the stupid maserati deserved the sedan headbutt!

Unregistered

My sympathies are with Zidane!

Unregistered

Kenny, would you like to go South Africa with me for for next WorldCup match?

Unregistered

Link to this address. It shows you why Zidane was angry with the Italian player.

http://antithesis98.blogspot.com/

The Italian player was using DIRTY TACTIC to provoke Zidane's anger.

Unregistered

When you view at the video as stated above, it will show you how the Italian player fonded Zidane's nipple during the match.

Unregistered

Head butt or no,it's best man wins!
Go Italia! Fabio Cannavaro is mah man.

Unregistered

well, that Italian fella deserves it!

Unregistered

Zidane is a C L O W N. Nuff' said. And I am sad that the World Cup is over, back to normal mundane lives....!!!

Unregistered

Dude, not sure if you are right to say that Dynamo Moscow and Ajax Amsterdam are teams no one ever heard of...

Ajax Amsterdam are former European Cup winner... and Dynamo Moscow has been in the European Cup competition....

Exactly!

Kenny, what lah you, it's so obvious you don't watch football except for WC. Ajax is big leh! And sorry to tell you dude, there's EURO 2008. So it's not 4 years. It's 2 years only haha. Technically, this WC was sort of like EURO too, since the last 4 teams standing are European teams ;)

Unregistered

yeap WC fever won't go away for a couple of weeks, and then life goes on.

I like the superman dive one. cracks me up

Unregistered

Omigod!!! His nipple were fondled??!?! No wonder Zidane went ki siao sia.

Anyway, forget about the World Cup! THe super duper uber exciting S-League is on-going sia.

So French are saints eh? LOL! Talk about only seeing what you want to see... expert divers --> *cough*Henry*cough*Malouda*cough*

Unregistered

I don't think Italy played fair game for the whole WC. Try to figure out all the matches and analise it. Sorry to say... they are dirty.

Unregistered

Sometimes why these crazy bola men lose their head defies logic. Zizou and Cantona shld start a french academy teaching ppl to floor opponents using flying kungfu kicks and head butts = D

Unregistered

good one kenny...

kenny boleh!

Unregistered

A real man doesn't punch..he fuckin headbutts. Lol.

In all seriousness though, I heard Materazzi was an ass of a person, calling Zizou's siter a prostitute and making racist remarks. So I guess he deserved it.

Classic tho.

Unregistered

why u mentioned about shebby? Don't tell me you like belakang mari

Noone said the french are saints, but everyone know the italians are flagrant cheaters, go read blogs and forums around you will see how people in the whole wide world are bashing the italians, afterall they represents the worst case of all the fake diving they do on the pitch. So what message this sends to the kids? start learning how to dive and whine you will win a cup someday! what a shame!

Unregistered

i hope that Zidane i will not retire, He could still use his skills in the movies, he could play a modern David Carradine in Kungfu, The legend continues:The World Cup Edition.

Wah... the last 2nd and 3rd pic were taken from my school o.O"

Posted by: antiamaterazzi at 11 July 2006 4:20 PM


I read blogs and forums too. Most people label Portuguese as thugs and cheaters. Most bashing for Italy came from French-supporters as well. Let's face it. Every team has their fair share of supporters and haters. Henry and Malouda dived but didn't need to whine coz they admittedly were much better divers who managed to con them into penalties! France couldn't score from open-play both in semi and the final. If not because of the dives, who knows, maybe the semis might have gone into penalty kicks and the thugs team might've ended up in the Final instead? Everyone who watches Arsenal games know Henry is a renowned diver as well. To have the skills he has, he still need to dive, and that's not a shame???

Unregistered

wahahahaha.

agree to all.

:P

about zidane though. materazzi was an ass in the first place. he deserved more than a headbutt.

much more.

damn divers... they should make more movies, they act so well..
harumph.

oh. Zidane was also probably pissed he missed the header earlier. he just made sure he dint miss that one. :D

Unregistered

i love e headbutt part...

haha...

Unregistered

i suspect kenny is suffering world cup withdrawal symptoms.

Unregistered

Sipek sien la France didn't win. Ugh. Zidane is another idiot, so temperamental. I heard the stupid Italian mofo insulted his Algerian immigrant parents/mother...and the mofo (of course) denied it later on. I guess only comments like these are enough to spark fire. I say the Italians planned it. And I also say theitalian mofo pretended to fall down and be more hurt than he actually was...
Don't mind me, just my 2 cents.

Unregistered

i agree that italy doesnt deserve the Cup of Life. they have a tradition of poor sportsmanship and violence. everyone from the team to the fans to the club management are always embroiled in some controversy.

lets start with the fans. italian fans in serie a are known to be the most racist. nazi salutes and fan violence happens every week. many clubs including intermilan and juventus have been banned and fined heavily because of their fans' behaviours. racist and violence sums up the italian ultras. even the germans are embarassed of their nazi roots.

italian players are known to play very dirty. what's worst, they manipulate and make use of the laws to their advantage. elbows, provocation, racist remarks, poor sportsmanship.. the italians are best for this. they make opponents hate them, then take advantage when they're most weakest. on the field, fighitng among players are almost mandatory. roma v juv always results in mass player brawls.

now at the top level. i believe most of you already know about the serie a match fixing scandal. potentially 4 clubs will be relegated for bribes and match fixing. what can i say, even exec ppl at the top are playing dirty. 3/4 of the first 11 world cup winning team will potentially be clubless in the next coming weeks.

regarding the zz v materazzi, even materazzi admits he insulted zz. now now, i know italian fans are gonna come to his def saying its part of the game. but zz is only human, he has limits to how much insult he can takes too. i don't blame him for defending himself. he knows his mistakes and is taking the heat quietly.

all i can say italians are a dirty lot. every facet of italian football is embroiled in controversy. and at the end of the day, i always believe in karma. karma will hit u back when u least expect it. don't gloat about your achievements today, u will never know wat might happen in the future.

but anyway, i do agree that canavarro and buffon are the best players in their position during the WC - def n GK. zz will always be remembered for his brilliance in mid. not many can juggle the ball over ronaldinho. remember that.

Unregistered

that's where i play football every sat afternoon. :)

Unregistered

You are rather IGNORANT when making jokes about Ajax Amsterdam. Ajax is quite a well known dutch football club and they had won the european champions cup before well back in the 70s.

Unregistered

it is the diving n the whining that makes the match muc more interesting. id rather watch italy n portugal do wat they do best thn watch any of england's matches. and damnit the final match was fixed. whr gt penalty so early one n whr gt offside for the second half goal by italy. knnccb.

Unregistered

Say, are you suffering from these symdroms too? =P

The head butt thing is funny. But I would say that he is dam mean lo... =S

1st ever "stunt" I've seen before.. =S

Unregistered

kenny, you watch football only during WC? Or only MU matches? Chelsea matches? Arsenal matches? Only EPL? then no wonder you never heard of Dynamo Moscow and Ajax Amsterdam.. poor :P

Unregistered

I`m Gonna Miss Myself Very Much!

Hail Zinedine Zidane, THE LEGEND!

Unregistered

leave zizou out of the jokes, man

Unregistered

Zidane's headbutt moment is destined to be a World Cup classic. Haha~ What a magnificique exit! :P

Unregistered

that dive is photoshop ar?

minor note: Zidane had reasons.

Unregistered

Another amazing post.How can I ever live without ur humourous posting. haha

Unregistered

Well to me - Zidane is still a man that has earned my respect. His love for the game and the his style during play. No one else can match his flare..

As for the head butt - must be a reason to it.
Well at least the Italian now admits he insulted him..

Sigh...and just when football became intresting, some fancy gooodlooking italian has to spoil it for a legend..

Unregistered

I find Zidane's headbutt to have been quite justified - Materazzi did tweak his nipples earlier on in the game. Besides that, the insults that Materazzi threw at Zidane were reportedly along the lines of "you are a lower than a piece of shit", "your sister is a prostitute", and "son of a terrorist whore". This last insult hit home the hardest due to the fact that Zidane's mother was that very day in the hospital due to illnesses. Of course, there was no way for Materazzi to have known this, but it was nevertheless a low blow and in my opinion justifies Zidane's actions. After all, everyone has their breaking point.

Thanks for the effort on the posts Kenny, s'great laughs hereabouts.

Portugal is a blardy diver team la, look at the sissy cristiano ronaldo, touched little bit like kena shot from M16 only, it is a pity in World Cup 2006 there is no best actor award nominated to him.

Chris man, you missed the point again, it is not about wheather the french or the others are divers, you have mistook my comments as pro french. The italians are the worst of all these cheats, not to mention the scumbag racist personified by this despictable Materazzi. There are videos on youtube dedicated to the low life acts of materazzi. If FIFA is promoting tolerance and against racial discrimination, act on this kinda bullshit.

I am heading to Italy in September and I am gonna spit on their famous landmarks.

you are wrong, the bashing on italians come from all around the world, most of all from aussies bcos they lost to a dive.

Unregistered

Correct. My bad. Bashings for Italians do come from all the Australian supporters (except for myself, I was rooting for the Aussies in that match believe it or not :P), German supporters, as well as some England supporters who could not believe Italy won the Cup when England had more stars in their team ;)

Yes, whatever Materazzi said is not something to be proud of at all, but as of now, the real contents of his words remain a speculation (lip-readers and translators? Ermm...). Yes, Zidane is a great footballer, but many are also forgetting that Zidane had always have a mean streak in him too. Just remember that Zidane's back was facing the camera and no one knows what he said at that time too. No, I'm not trying to take sides here, but I'm rather annoyed at how everyone willingly jumps in to back Zidane when everything is still in speculation.

The most ridiculous comment I've read so far being one coming from a French supporter who said Italy should be stripped of their World Cup and France crowned the champions instead. If Materazzi did make a racist comment, by all means, ban him from football for life or even strip him of his medal, but to punish the whole team? What did Cannavaro do to deserve that kind of comment then? Also, if one "unjust" outcome means the winners of the match should be stripped of their win, then shouldn't the WHOLE World Cup be replayed again?

If it was someone else who was involved in the headbutt instead, I'm almost 100% certain that this would not have been so talked about at all.

Unregistered

ok, i'm missing the world cup badly already!

gonna wait for another 4 yrs....

i'm feeling blue....

Unregistered

there is nothing much to look at the end of this world cup.
The only thing that we all remember is that head-butting incident called "THE ZiZou"
All of my frens are threatening me to do the a zizou if i rub them de wrong way leh !
woo hoo!

Unregistered

i'm quite sure that italian fucker said something bad to zidane. THAT provoked the whole thing.

tsk!

Hahahahaa!!! That last two really got me!! :))

FORZA AZZURI!

Unregistered

chris, i understand you're neutrality on this issue. but yu have shown one serious flaw, your lack of knowledge of football, FIFA rules, and past history/incidences.

i'll give u a quote for the materazzi incident:

"On July 11, 2006, FIFA declared its intent to officially investigate the incident. It has been speculated in the German press, that the non-discrimination provision which FIFA adopted for its disciplinary code on 28 March 2006 may lead to the FIFA Executive Committee imposing harsh sanctions on Materazzi and/or the Italian side, up to and including disallowing Italy's team the World Cup victory if Materazzi is found to have insulted Zidane with racial slurs."

in my opinion, i doubt they'll be stripped of the cup, but i do hope that justice will be served. football is about football not thrash-talking and dirty tactics. and right now, the italians are the most hated team to ever win the cup in modern history. they don't deserve it. a winning 11 who will be clubless in the coming weeks just further proves the scandals and cheats the italians are always in.

Unregistered

fuck you.ITALY rox.losers juz cant accept dat they won.hey guess wad?they won and are officially the 2006 world champions.ppl are juz siding wif zidane coz he's more famous than materrazi.dat is a fact.juz wait and see wad the REAL incident is,rather than condemning materrazi based on rumours,LOSERS.yes,i support italy,but i dun jump to conclusions like all the other jealous wussies out thr whose teams did NOT win the world cup.

Unregistered

That was St THomas's football field!!! And when exactly did you take that picture!? Aargh! Student there and i didn't even catch you!

Unregistered

yeah. italy won! means i can continue reading kennysia.com without the bad words in my head. btw i agree with sign #9. i still wake up at 9, watch reruns of shows i dont know, click to channel 83, realise that it's not there anymore, again, then...
damn..
is it okay to miss a channel so dearly that it makes you want to cry when you realise that it's not longer there..?

Thanks for showing me the quote anon, but I've already read that FIFA statement before I commented ;). I don't only watch football every 4 years like our mr.blogger here hehe :P.

What I was trying to say is, I don't agree with that kind of punishment on a team, based on one idiot's action. Be it Italian or any other team. Whatever match-fixing scandals the Italians have in their domestic league, they are already being dealt with. Unless of course, if they actually fixed the WC Final too!!! :)
