Goalkeepers rarely get any glory so they really need to lap it up in a penalty shootout - but FAR Rabat's Khalid Askri probably went too far by completely ignoring the fact his save counted for nothing because of the spin on the ball.
In one of the strangest moments ever in a penalty shootout, 29-year-old Askri appeared to have saved a penalty low to his left and turned away to celebrate for his fans.More: See Emmanuel Eboue's bizarre touch-line warm-up. However, while his back was turned he failed to spot the spin on the ball taking it back towards the goal-line and into the net. The opportunist Maghreb Fez player, who originally thought he had missed, took great delight in pointing it out to the referee, who was forced to give the goal - much to the annoyance of Askri.The 'phantom' save cost Askri's side dearly too - as they went on to lose 7-6 in the shootout to be eliminated in the last-16 of the Moroccan league's Coupe du Trône.

Unknown Glentoran striker Matty Burrows could soon be rubbing shoulders with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi after his back-heeled 92nd minute winner against Portadown last month became an internet sensation.

I have, and I think that not only is it disturbing, I also feel they failed to include a "drag to stomach" option...

Raya comes but once a year,
Bringing joy and lots of cheer,
A month of sacrifices; followed by good tidings,
Celebrations of joy, happiness and blessings,
Beneath the hunger of stomachs growling,
Is where one finds Ramadhan's true meaning
,It goes beyond spiritual enhancing,
It's not just about forgiving and forgetting,
The month serves as a gentle reminder,
To always be thankful to our Creator,
Ultimately; Ramadhan is a call to all,
To change one's self; big or small,
Your body, heart, or mind; it doesn't really matter,
So long as you are changing for the better,
So whatever you do; wherever you may be,
Have yourself a Wonderful Hari Raya Aidilfitri ^___^
Take care, drive safe and eat safe!

Aren’t we all Malaysians?
I HAVE many memories of my childhood days when religion and race were of no importance to me. It was so unimportant that I thought my father was Chinese and my mother was Malay and my grandparents Indians until I was about five or six. And the fact that we speak Chinese, English and Malay at home did not help clear the air at all.
As we approach Hari Raya and National Day this year, I was reminded of the past when I collected both green and red packets from my family members. It didn’t matter whether it was Raya or Chinese New Year, red and green packets were part of the celebration, as my grandparents are Chinese.
We had Chinese kiam chai theng (soup made of pickled vegetable) and Malay rendang on both occasions and life was great. I was brought up as a Malaysian first and a Malay second and not the other way round. And I’m proud of it.
Racial identity is so important to many Malaysians and after 53 years of nationhood, one would think that we would be more mature and wise in terms of racial relationships. But somehow we are more and more worried that we would lose our racial identity if we are not careful.
We see parents squabbling on whether ethnic and religious schools are better than national schools and not wanting their children to mix.
We see Malaysians debating and arguing whether it is appropriate to teach English and Science in school. Never mind the fact that it is the lingua franca of this planet.
We hear individuals not wanting to celebrate Raya and other celebrations together, citing religious reasons and wanting an end to our Kongsi Raya tradition.
Why are we so worried about becoming less Malay, Chinese and Indian? Aren’t we all Malaysians? Have we not realised that the fundamental nature of our country and society does not lie with a single racial entity, but as a whole? If the Malays, the Chinese, the Indians or any other races were to stand alone, they cannot claim to be Malaysians. They are simply Malays, Chinese, Indians and other races.
I still celebrate both occasions regardless of what some people think. I will continue to celebrate both occasions and will definitely give my children ang pow and qing pow (green packets).
We have been able to observe Ramadan in peace and will celebrate Raya soon with our loved ones. And later in the year we’ll celebrate Christmas and then Chinese New Year early next year.
At the risk of sounding corny, I should also add that we should be thankful to live in such a peaceful country. And in this world and age, it is a rare commodity.
We should cherish and maintain it at all costs. For better or for worse, for richer or poorer, till death come knocking on our door. I offer no apology for saying all this and more.
Selamat Hari Raya to all Malaysians and a Happy Birthday, Malaysia.

MUAR: A witness to a snatch theft quietly followed two thieves to their house. And then called the police.
The two suspects were nabbed an hour after the theft with their loot — two gold necklaces, a cellular phone and several bank cards.
The two men, aged 31 and 26, who were on a motorcycle, had snatched a woman’s handbag along Jalan Bakri at 3.15pm on Feb 6.
The woman, who worked at a factory here, had tried to chase after the two men on her motorcycle but fell and was slightly hurt.
That’s when the witness decided to follow them home.
Commending the man, Muar deputy police chief Supt Lee Choon Guan said: “We immediately sent a team to the house and found the two men with the victim’s handbag.”
The two men, who had previous drug-related criminal records, have been remanded for a week.
Bravo, model citizen! The world needs more people like you! :D
