Saturday afternoon - went to petrol kiosk fer ciggies. Noticed an Indian guy with his family at the fuel pump. His wifey & three daughters were all clad in LFC jerseys (Grannie was spared). Me thought fooking hardcore!
Drove me car to the air pumps to check tyre pressure. There was another car at the next pump. Driver gets out of car . . . clad in a pristine away LFC jersey. Eh, ramai pulak.
As me drives out of the kiosk, me is stuck behind a Pajero in the exit queue. And lo & behold, there's a brand new-looking LFC sticker stuck on the rear windscreen (me says brand new as the sticker didn't look like it has been sitting there fer years where the colours are faded from over exposure to our panas terik).
Then it struck me. Shit, this is the first time in years that me beloved Reds has been touted as serious title contenders. Could this sudden appearance of Red paraphernalia be genuine Kopites coming out of the woodwork or typical Malaysian lalang syndrome? Remember how we used to see Blackburn jerseys everywhere after they fooking won the league? Or the sudden injection of Chelsea Blue on our streets in the last few years?
Wonder if they were still wearing them shirts on Sunday morning after the seriously painful defeat to Spurs? Lalang would normally put their shirts away. But then again, many lalang would have found a 1.30 am kick off a little to late fer their liking & would've been fooking oblivious.
So are we the new Blackburn?
ps: Sorry bout this posting, just venting after a shite weekend. No offence meant to any Kopites . . . genuine or otherwise.
pps: Congrats to Moz, Anand the Silent Obeserver & all other Spurs fans who are having a great week after disastrous start.
