Sports Review :)

PFA Awards were declared yesterday and what a tribute to Ryan Giggs. The glittering career he has had, being the most successful player in English football, he truly deserves it. Although many people might argue that he should not have got that award for this seasons display, I think the impact he has had in important matches, most importantly completely outshining Lampard, Ballack and company at old trafford, he deserves it. If united win the two trophies this season to play for, I guess he will be in line to be awarded Knighthood. Sir Ryan Giggs .. sounds good !!

Had a look at the PFA team of the year as well and seems fine to me. Although I am bitterly disappointed with my favorite player "Wayne Rooney" missing out again in the list. Since last 3 years united have dominated the list, still rooney hasn't featured once. I agree Torres has been excellent and truly deserves it, while anelka was the leading goal scorer till last weekend, should be in the list for central strikers role. But rooney offers much more extra, a total team player which any coach in this world will like to have :)

Apart from it, I am religiously following FakeIPL blog and loving it. The guy is truly a genius and the nicknames are awesome. Still wondering who is Mangal Pandey thou in this latest post. Any clue about that?

IPL may not be generating the same TRP's as last year, still after a few rain interruptions and one sided affairs, the excitement is back. Recently almost every match has been close calls, down to last over of the second innings. Last year powerhouses like Rajasthan. Chandigarh and Chennai are struggling while Hyderabad and Delhi and rocking the table. I am betting on Chennai or Delhi, lets see how it goes!!

Last but not the last there is something amiss from this years formula 1. Traditional powerhouses like Ferrari, Mclaren and Renault are struggling badly and Brawn and RedBull are setting up the times. Common Ferrari, a win at Barcelona please!!
