as a Kuwaiti, this tournamnet means a lot to us, we already won 9 out of 18
p "sounding like a madridesta already" LOL!
anyway, last night game Kuwait team showed the Kuwaiti players mentality are truely to be admired, with all these bullshit going around them, and FIFA kicking us out not so long ago, to get back in for only 6 month, and get ready for this one with the menemum of work.
I was so damn proud, Oman was the better team in all those jackass's journalists lists, and they was talking not about who will win, but how many Oman will score!?
it got us pissed out a lot, still last night anyone who saw the game knows which was the better team, even Oman had a good game and controlled the most of it, Kuwait was the team who missed 5 sitters and got one goal disallowed!
Ahmad Ajab "who is btw the world goal scorer" got his worse days for ages, he missed 3 one-on-one and got the best of ALHabsy out with that save on the header.
I'm putting my faith in this team, we just need a better coach, someone like Matchalla, who is Bahrain coach, and was Kuwait coach back in 1996, 1998 tournamnets which we won with ease
and this team got a promesing talent in it, and I wish this time Kuwait FA don't fvck it up big time and screw our next generation as they did to Olympic team of 2000 in Sydny..
about Iraq and Bahrain game, to be honest its a shame to watch Iraq team looks like punch of cvnts last night, its a shame when you know these guys just won the ASIAN CUP less than a year ago, and they just didn't show no heart to even wanting to do something.
in the other hand Bahrain just showed they are coming to get thier one, the CUP that they never won, they want thier name on that Trophy no matter what and who is standing in thier face.
having a coach like Matchalla who knows the Gulf teams one by one, coached Kuwait, Saudi and Oman, which he created the base of Oman, the team that almost win this the past two times losing to the hosts both in Qatar and UAE, in the final game.
it helps that Bahrain get far in this and get a vote as winning it.
today we'll see Saudi, UAE and Qatar, with Yaman who isn't favourit in doing nothing because they aren't tough enough with do all respect to them.
this Gulf tournament have a big space in our hearts people in the GULF it gave us a lot of memories, it gave us a lot of great players, great coachs, and great relationship between us in the GULF.
I still the game between Kuwait and Iraq in 1976 in DOHA "QATAR" which was the final game, and Kuwait winning it 4-2 with Abdullaziz ALAnbiry goal in the last minute.
still remember Iraq winning it in Baghdad, still remember a lot like Saudi first win.
Gulf teams improved a lot thank to this tournement, and I wish it stay like this and AFF don't fvck it up, nor FIFA.
and btw: the days of winning by 5's and 7's is long gone, there is no team bigger than the others, everyone showed a big improvement over the years..
