The 20 Swear Words Rooney Cannot Say

The big hoo-hah over the World Cup now is the amount of incessant swearing by players. Rooney has been made the poster boy. In fact, newswires now report that the referees for the match between England and USA have been given 20 English swear words so that they can familiarise themselves for that match between England and USA. Trouble is NONE of the swear words were released or published by the media. Only at Malaysia Finance do we try to analyse which 20 words they were. Please read at the latter part of article.

The Daily Telegraph:

Carlos Simon, who has a reputation as a no-nonsense, if also controversial, official is a fluent English speaker but he and his assistants, Roberto Braatz and Altemir Hausmann, have been given a list of 20 English swear words to prepare themselves for England's Group C match against the United States.

With Rooney cautioned in Monday's practice match against the Platinum Stars for using foul and abusive language against referee Jeff Selogilwe - who warned that if the striker behaved the same during the tournament he could get sent off - it will intensify the focus on his behaviour.

Fabio Capello is likely to speak, informally, to Rooney ahead of Saturday's game to remind him of his importance to the team and also the need to keep his discipline especially if he is provoked by the Americans who have already questioned his, sometimes, volatile temperament.

Hausmann, Simon's first assistant, said: "We have to learn what kind of words the players say. All players swear and we know we will hear a few 'son of a ..... '."

His fellow assistant, Braatz, added: "We can't do this in 11 different languages but at least we have to know the swear-words in English."

Simon, 44, is officiating in his third World Cup finals, but has been criticised in Brazil for a series of decisions which led to one of the country's biggest clubs, Flamengo, petitioning Fifa to get him thrown out of the tournament.

Capello is acutely aware of the different referees and styles the England players will encounter during the World Cup which is why he selected officials from a series of different countries during the warm-up games and friendlies over the past two years.

It is all part of his meticulous preparation which stepped up on Wednesday with the Italian starting his in-depth analysis of how the Americans will play on Saturday. He will examine DVDs and scouting reports which may influence the selection of the team he puts out although the XI is, according to sources, starting to take shape.

One of the key decisions is who will play in goal and Joe Hart is, as has been apparent since the squad arrived in South Africa, putting increasingly severe pressure on Robert Green to be selected and may even, now, have edged ahead. Indeed it is understood that so close is the call between the two that Capello is not likely to make up his mind until after his usual post-breakfast walk on Saturday morning.

The England manager had indicated he would decide who would play on Friday but Hart's impressive performances in training and his self-assurance is putting Green's selection in doubt. David James, who is still recovering from a sore knee, is unlikely to be risked by Capello.

The decision will come down to who does best in the last two days of training with Hart understood to be that little bit "sharper" than Green right now, although the West Ham goalkeeper does have the advantage of greater experience.

It is likely that Capello will partner either Emile Heskey - who appears the favourite as things stand - or Peter Crouch with Rooney in what is expected to be a 4-4-2 formation. One of the other big selection issues is whether James Milner - who will return to training today after missing the last two days due to a temperature - or Joe Cole plays on the left of midfield. The likelihood is that Capello may favour Milner but, again, it will be an extremely close call and may depend on how he feels the Americans will line up.

Dali, So much has been said and written on Kenmark. But inconspicuous by comparison is the sports betting fiasco in which B Group is embroiled in. CIMB Has been busy promoting B Group. Notice there was a crossing of 100mil shares crossed about two weeks

My Master, A National Treasure

REPOST:  Its been more than two years since I posted on my sifu. This is probably the most significant posting I had done thus far that does not involve business or politics. My circle of close friends and business colleagues have benefited significantly from his treatment.


My Master, Dr. Law Chin Han (from my iPhone)

Where shall I start? OK, just based on real life experiences of those who are close to me. The entire Tong family (Bukit Kiara Properties) absolutely swear that he is the master of masters when it comes to acupuncture (and dentistry as well). To me, you can probably find many great dentists, but to find a real Master in acupuncture, thats a whole different ballgame.


I am not big aficionado of Chinese medicine or acupuncture initially. I guess you have to go through the whole shebang to appreciate the real life changing effects from a master.


My business partner and very close friend went to him after 15 years of persistent gout problem, he will get his heavy attacks at least…
