ESPN FC Launch Party

So there I am groaning under the after effects of a half baked hangover. The night before I had witnessed Singapore v Hong Kong at Hougang Stadium; the first half was so poor I took to deleting photographs from my tab. Luckily things improved second half.

Anyway I am flicking through twitter as is my wont when I saw Jason Dasey talk about ex Arsenal striker Paul Mariner. Me and Jason got chatting and to cut a long story short I ended up being invited to the ESPNFC launch party that night. It was a smart casual affair and all I had with me was shorts and t shirts...I still had to google smart casual mind!

ESPNFC are looking to provide a lot more content about South East Asian football, a subject close to my heart obviously, so obviously I was keen to get involved so I jumped on the bus in a bid to track down some threads. Memo to self, Peninsula Plaza isn't the best place for shopping!

I had only met Jason once before, at a golf tournament in KL, so I wan't sure if he would recognise me; he had been sat with former Spurs striker Darren Anderton then so I didn't stick around! Anyway, then I had been dressed in my usual stuff, now I had spunked several hundred dollars would he recognise the smart casual look?! He did.

Paul Parker was also there and seemed happy enough to answer questions about Manchester United but when I asked him about a goal he once scored for Fulham against Aldershot in the League Cup at Craven Cottage, his memory failed him!

Anyway, a good time was had by all, fuelled by regular top ups of cold beer, and I for one am looking forward to checking out on a regular basis for news on football in the region.

A couple of pictures can be found on my Instagram account.
