EPL Broadcasting in the ME

english_premier_league_logo

 

On the 23rd of June AL Arabiya posted on their website that Al Jazeera sport are in the lead to win the EPL broadcasting and branding rights in around $350m for three years from MP & Silva.

And that ADM have offered MP & Silva half of what they paid back then ($360m) when they won the rights for 2010-2013 rights.

Today a new twist happened when we were waiting for the expected announcement based on @koooraworld post on Instagram MP & Silva are still listening for bids and Al Jazeera Sport won nothing yet!! it is said that OSN are in the race with some national broadcasters bidding for their nation rights (Saudia, Iraq, Dubai and Sharqah) and nothing can be sorted until the last days before the EPL kicks off. The source also stated that we will only give exclusivity broadcasting if we got some crazy bid.

43 days left till the EPL kicks off and we’re still in the dark :(

(@applebeeskw) أولد ترافورد… في الكويت

photo

لم يعد استاد «أولد ترافورد» بعيداً عن الكويت، فمساء الأحد الماضي تجمع عدد من اعضاء رابطة مشجعي مانشستر يونايتد” الانكليزي في البلاد في احد المطاعم على الواجهة البحرية لشارع الخليج العربي لمتابعة المباراة التي جمعت بين «الشياطين الحمر» وتشلسي في الدور ربع النهائي من مسابقة كأس انكلترا.
صحيح ان المباراة شهدت مفترقات دراماتيكية اذ تقدم مان يونايتد 2- صفر، ثم قنع بالتعادل 2-2 غير ان مجرد تجمع «شباب الديرة» بشكل حضاري لمتابعة احدى المباريات ينم عن وعي من شأنه ابعاد هؤلاء عن الآفات التي يعاني منها “المجتمع.

That was on alrai newspaper today  and it was a shock we saw someone from alrai with a cam but didn’t expect to see it on the newspaper the other day. anyways iv spoken about the game already and i guess thats enough ;)

Special thanks for @applebeeskw for hosting us and @alraimediagroup for the coverage

United 2 – 2 Chelsea

123639897_football_392990c

 

 

A disappointing  result to be honest we could have finished the game with easy win we played well for the first half and then it seems like another united team took over the pitch in the second half??

What went wrong? why are we playing this bad? our passing was awful we gave away too many balls to chelsea and then we were saved by David De Gea amazing foot clearance which we didn’t need if we had finished the games earlier.

Valencia and Evra they both started the season on a high level and now they’re pulling us back!! one footed player and a left back that cant cover his place well :(

There you go with the highlights

Man United vs Chelsea

unitedchelsea

Since we lost to Madrid last tuesday and the moral has been down for a reason. Everyone wants to win the ECL we outplayed then but it wasn’t meant to be and for the third time we’ve been knocked out because of a harsh decision.

The season is not over yet we still have a chance for a double like we did in (93/94 & 95/96) and thats by beating chelsea and carry on through the FA cup. On the other hand every game is a final now since we have to secure 19 points out if the remaining 30 to win the league.

Last time we won the cup was in 2004 when we defeated Millwall 3-0. Other than Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes no one in the squad have had an FA Cup medal with United and thats a big motivation for them specially our young guns.

Manchester United have faced Chelsea 11 times in the FA Cup, and won eight of those encounters. Their last meeting was in the 2007 final, where Didier Drogba’s extra-time goal won a truly dreadful match. United defeated Chelsea four times in the 1990s in this competition, including in the 1994 final.

Tottenham v Manchester United

tottenham-vs-manchester-united-2012

 

 

“Champions Manchester United staged a magnificent comeback to overwhelm Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

Spurs had been 3-0 up at half time after outplaying their opponents.”

But in the second half things changed and United turned the table upside down scoring 5 goals to finish the match Spurs 3-5 United

  • 3-1 Andy Cole (46)
  • 3-2 Laurent Blanc (58)
  • 3-3 Ruud van Nistelrooy (72)
  • 3-4 Juan Sebastián Verón (76)
  • 3-5 David Beckham (87)

We had an amazing run against spurs not losing for 26 consecutive matches until we lost 2-3 last september. It is important to get a positive result since City will be playing Fulham one day earlier so its either maintaining the 7 points gap or increasing that number inshallah :)

United will have 2 more matches in January v Fulham in FA cup then Southampton in the EPL. to join us watch Spurs v United with the MUSC please apply here

قصة كأس الخليج

pic-Gulf-cup-16-11-12

 

 تكلمت من يومين عن قصة كأس الخليج و من وين يات الفكرة. أمس بتغريدات من رئيس مجلس الأمة السابق أحمد عبدالعزيز السعدون ذكر من وين يات الفكرة و شلون طبقوها و هذا إقتباس من تغريدته

“فلقد قرأت في أكثر من موقع من ينسب فكرة دورة كأس الخليج لأكثر من واحد من المسؤولين الرياضيين السابقين أو الحاليين وذلك وكما ذكر بطرح هذه الفكرة من قبل هؤلاء المسؤولين على رئيس الاتحاد الدولي لكرة القدم إثناء الألعاب الأولمبية في المكسيك عام ١٩٦٨، وهذا ما لا استطيع تأكيده أو نفيه ، ولكن المؤكد أنه لما قام السيد ستانلي رواس رئيس الاتحاد الدولي لكرة القدم بزيارة الكويت في مطلع عام ١٩٦٩ وطرح علينا في الاتحاد الكويتي لكرة القدم فكرة إقامة دورة رياضية ( في كرة القدم ) في المنطقة وأبدى استعداد إحدى شركات التبغ لرعايتها لم يذكر أن الفكرة قد طرحت عليه من قبل أي مسؤول رياضي خليجي ، ولما رحبنا بالفكرة رفضنا رعايتها من قبل شركة للتبغ لاعتقادنا بتعارض ذلك مع الرياضة ، وبالإضافة إلى ذلك عندما نوقشت الفكرة بعد ذلك بفترة وجيزة بين مسؤولي الإتحاد البحريني لكرة القدم والمسؤولين عن الفريق الأهلي الكويتي إثناء وجود الفريق في البحرين للعب مع الفريق الأهلي البحريني لم يُذْكر أن الفكرة قد طرحت على رئيس الاتحاد الدولي من قبل أي مسؤول رياضي خليجي وفي الإجتماع التأسيسي الذي دعى إليه الإتحاد البحريني لكرة القدم وعقد بتاريخ ١٩٦٩/٦/١٩ والذي تم فيه الموافقة على إقامة البطولة وتكفلت البحرين مشكورة بتنظيم أول دورة مع رفضها أن تتولى شركة التبغ رعايتها ، وحضر هذا الإجتماع بالإضافة إلى البحرين ممثلين عن اتحادات كرة القدم في كل من المملكة العربية السعودية وقطر والاتحاد الكويتي الذي تشرفت بتمثيله ، لم يذكر أي من الحضور أن الفكرة كانت قد طرحت على رئيس الإتحاد الدولي لكرة القدم من قبل أي من المسؤولين الرياضيين الخليجيين ، ومرة أخرى فإنني لا استطيع تأكيد أو نفي من تنسب إليهم الفكرة ، ولكنني واستجابة لمن أراد أن يعرف الحقيقة كما هي ، ذكرت الحقائق التي أعرفها كما سلف .”
