EPL Masters Football Malaysia Cup 2009

By 20:29

The EPL Master was held over the weekend. I felt so cheated when I realised there was no Kanchelskis despite the organisers advertising that he would be around for this tournament! But my frown didn't last long.. Manchester United fans from back in the day, eat your hearts out!! I got a picture with ANDREW COLE (formerly known as Andy Cole)!! It was a treat to watch him play again. Come on, he's still good enough to play in the current MU team. :)

This tournament had returning Champions Liverpool, Manchester United, EPL All Stars Masters and Sheffield United under one roof. It was wonderful to watch these football greats who played in different eras & seasons to just come together for the game and the fans.


Manchester United

EPL All Stars Masters
Ian Walker, Lee Martin, Ray Parlour, Russell Beardsmore, Ugo Ehiogu, Richard Sneekes, Craig Hignett (In no particular order)

Sheffield United
Sasa Illic, Paul Wood, Carl Bradshaw, Mark Todd, George Santos, Tony Agana, Alan Wright, Brian Deane, Tommy Mooney (In no particular order)

FatiN for Manchester United! LOL!

Though it was difficult to ignore the fact that a lot of the players are old and some may be slightly out of shape, not forgetting the ones with large bellies. Lol! But there are still some that have managed to keep themselves in really good shape. I noticed these are the younger players that may have just retired in the past few years like Ronnie Johnsen & Jasper Blomqvist. Actually Paul Parker looked rather good considering the fact that I started watching him play during the 91-92 season (Wow that's a while back.. This is making me feel old..).

Moving along to the tournament, it was a five a side match with 8 minutes in each half. Even after 16 minutes, a lot of the players were already panting. Taking into account their age & fitness level, they still had it in them.

The final score was 3-3. No extra time for this tournament. Penalties! Hate it! But this time United came through!

Winning penalty by Andrew Cole! Woohoo!!
Come On You Reds!

The EPL All Stars won against Sheffield United. SU are after all the new boys in the tournament. It seems that they havn't been playing long enough as a team. Lets see what happens next year.

I'm hoping they bring in other greats next year. My current wish list includes Peter Schmeichel, Eric Cantona & Kanchelskis. *Drool..* It was a great tournament!
