Liverpool FC wishes Nepalese a Happy vijaya Dashami on their Official facebook page

Liverpool FC wishes Nepalese supporters on Bijaya Dashami on their facebook page
We all are bound to a religion some exceptions aside, our work, principles, inspirations, service are based on our religion. Festivals are part of the religion which has great cultural, religious values which bounds our family, relatives together.

               Different religions celebrate different festivals based on the promotion of traditionally practiced ways of celebrations along with  regular modifications in regard to the demand and place and what the situation demands. Christians celebrate celebrate Christmas as their main festival, Muslims celebrate Eid and for Hindus – their main festival is Dashain(Dashera) and Deepawali.

Liverpool Fc surprised Nepalese Liverpool supporters wishing them a prosperous and Happy Dashami 2071 the date format which the Nepalese Government follows. The wish was published on Liverpool FC’s official Facebookpage with customization viewable for only Nepalese facebook users. The message from Liverpool FC  read “ On behalf of Liverpool Football Club, We would like to wish our Hindu Supporters on the auspicious occasion of Bijaya Dashami 2071 a Happy and Prosperous Bijay Dashami. YNWA” which in Nepali is
" लिभरपूल फुटबल क्लबका तर्फ बाट हाम्रा समस्त हिन्दु समर्थकका समक्षमा विजया दशमी २०७१ को हार्दिक मंगलमय शुभकामना ! युल् नेभर वाक अलोन !

On the photo shopped picture which is a complete picture to represent the Dashain Festival shows a Liver bird with LFC written beneath it. On the background there is a football ground where football is being played and there are some childrens flying kites which is one of the most inseperable  part of Dashain where children as well as Adults enjoy flying kite. Even on the kite the words YNWA are inscribed to justify the phrase You will Never Walk Alone (YNWA). There is a ping(A typical nepali word for swing) where people entertain themselves forgetting their troubles, worries, problems and there is a religious belief that one most leave the ground once in a year. The most importance of this festival is the worshipping of Goddess Durga which you can see in the picture as well whose eyes are watching you and whoever in need. Dashain marks the custom of celebration of Victory of Evil over good job.

Liverpool FC wished us – the Nepalese Liverpool Supporters, Its not the main thing. What matters is how they value their supporters? We Nepalese LFC supporters might be a minority compared to those other Nations but what I found touching watch the attitude of the Club. If Liverpool FC had wished Nepalese supporters along with Hindu supporters in English Language and if no customization was made on Privacy and let it published world wide it would have been a great exposure to us.

Thanks again to Liverpool FC for not letting us walk alone , and Remember through what phase we are going right now we will also never let you walk alone. J

The mersyside derby and liverpool's performance

Mersy side derby:
Liverpool Vs Everton

 One of the interesting and thrilling match to watch in Barclays Premier League is the Mersyside derby. The mersyside clubs Liverpool Fc and Everton Fc compete with each other. Their rivalry dates long back as Liverpool FC separated themselves from Everton Fc and created its own history. It was the 223rd derby between these two clubs held at Anfield.
The derby started well with Captain Steven Gerrard providing lead to the Reds at the 65th minute later Everton equalized at the last moment in the extra time from Phil Jagielka’s fascinating volley. Steven Gerrard provided the lead from the beautiful  free kick and maintained the lead for almost at the end of the game but Reds were unfortunate enough to concede a goal and loose the deserved 3 points at the end of the game and share points with The Toffes.

Steven Gerrard:

Steven Gerrard was criticized a lot for his game against West Ham united, His performance against the Hammers were poor and most of the critics were questioning his game and his age, and the contribution he could make to Liverpool Fc. They put their views that, it was time for the skipper to step down from the full game and too much playing time would increase in fatigueness hampering his performance. In the 65th minute Liverpool got free kick and Steven Gerrard converted it beautifully to a goal skipping the ball over the Everton’s wall. Thus providing the most needed goal for the Reds  he was able to silence most of his criticizers and proved that he still has the qualities in him as a first choice for Brendan Rodgers.

Adam Lallana:

                The other player who was full of praise for his performance was Lallana who demonstrated an extra ordinary performance and receive cheers from the Reds supporters. He was quick with his feet and creative in passes, chasing the balls and often making Everton defenders return the ball to Howard. He is a precious talent for the Reds who missed most of the pre-season with an injury and is determined to shine for the Reds in Anfield and hungry for success.

The duo full backs rom spain, Alberto Moreno and Javi Manquillo are setting themselves to Rodgers playing style and Alberto Moreno made runs and provide crosses to Balloteli. Similarly, the centre full backs Martin Skrtel and Dejan Lovren also made a effective contribution in the game and the Vulnerable defence that Liverpool had earlier seemed to be improvised a lot.

What Liverpool is missing at this moment is a quality finisher, Mario Balloteli got some opportunities to lead the score but he could not connect himself with the ball once and the other ball he hit the bar. Daniel Sturridge is missed badly and nobody has been able to feel the void.

Every game ends up with some lessons to learn and improve the weak areas. Liverpool Fc might not have been able to gain a deserving points but we should have patience and continue never letting the passion degrade.

Nepal's promising talent Bimal Gharti Magar on FIFA's cover story

Nepal's Promising Talent- Bimal Gharti Magar on FIFA's cover story

The game was almost coming to an end, few minutes was remaining at the SAF(South Asian Football) Championship Tournament. Nepal was trailing behind with a goal against Pakistan. Then , this lad Bimal Gharti Magar entered to the ground as a substitute. The no. 25 scored at the last minutes and kept the competition alive. The Nepalese supporters who had lost their hope on their team was revived again and chanting his name “Bimal”.
Bimal Gharti Magar cover story on FIFA's site

Before some minutes ago the name was unknown to anyone. Now, the cheers were filled with his name and Nepal reached semi-final of the SAF championship. After this performance, he came up with many records through which he bagged the “youth Player Of the Award”. His name and fame was rising gradually, which led him to get contracted with the European Club Anderlecht’s youth team. He has performed well in Anderlecht’s young team scoring and making special contributions for the team.

Recently, FIFA’s official site, ( published a  cover story on Bimal Gharti Magar naming him as the rising star appreciating his playing style and performances. With his last minute goal equalizing for the Nepalese Team against Pakistan helped Nepal secure spot in the semi final leading that group. FIFA stated that in its story that “Bimal could not believe that he had scored for his country in such a crucial and thrilling match. In its story FIFA rates Bimal as a frontline and rising star. In recent U-16 championship other foreign coach also expressed his amusement in the youth’s talent.

FIFA rates Bimal Gharti Magar as South Asian’s most promising rising star. Some weeks back when Nepal played the U-16 championship in Bangkok and outclassed Kuwait 2- 1. The team coach appreciated his technical game and the overall superiority of NepaleseTeam’s game to theirs. Nepal held the usual winners Uzbekistan 1-1 and lost to the North Koreans thus being unable to make the qualifiers.

Bimal Gharti Magar caught the eyes of FIFA in this tournament. FIFA asked its regional governing body of football AFC(Asian Football Council) to prepare a news on this talent and sent some questionnaire, based on which the  cover story was prepared.

This cover story of Bimal is surely going to make some attractions to Nepalese football in International Arena and Nepalese football supporters can feel the pride to see their Icon making some headline in the Football governing body’s official site. Which I think is the pride of the whole south Asia.

Best wishes to the ever rising and promising talent, who is under contract to Anderlecht- the Belgium club unleashing his potential and flourishing in International football gaining valuable exposure to football and exposing his talents.

How was the post friends?? Please post your comments in the comment box below. YNWA Bimal
