"Liverpool Football Club are delighted to announce that Robbie Fowler has rejoined the club on a free transfer from Manchester City until the end of the season when the situation will be reviewed," said a club statement this afternoon.

Fowler scored 171 goals in 332 appearances for Liverpool between 1992 and 2001, but since being sold to Leeds by GĂ©rard Houllier a little over four years ago, has failed to re-discover that form. He has spent most of this season either on Manchester City's treatment table or their bench and was believed by many to be close to retirement. However, Liverpool manager Rafael Bentiez, who earlier this season spurned the opportunity to sign Michael Owen, clearly believes he can recapture past Anfield glories.

He is ineligible to play in Sunday's FA Cup tie against Portsmouth but could make what is sure to be an emotional reappearance in front of the Kop against Birmingham City on Wednesday. -

What a surprise!

The big match , 22nd January 2005

Come this Sunday, everything in England will be divided to 2 camps. Liverpool and Manchester United have always had a romantic relationship. Their rivalry is legendary and their meeting on the playing field is a sportswriter's dream of writing great article about how football is played. The sweat, the tackles, the goals, the winner and the loser. Eventually, some will not come to work the next day. They either too tired of cheering their winning team or too angry for their
team lackluster performance.

For those who breathe English football since the late 70's, Chelsea is nothing, Arsenal and Spurs is just fillers. It was Liverpool that conquer England and Europe then and if not for the lengthy band slapped on them because of the incident during the match with Juventus that leaves some spectators dead, they might even won more silverware. Ian Rush, Kenny Daglish & John Barnes. The killer forward of the time. Their classic Adidas Jersey with Candy as the sponsor. In those days, one would never doubt them even if they were 2 nill down. The end will always be good, for us.

Liverpool in the 90 is different. Great forward but disastrous defenders. It was a joke at times and Manchester finally took away all the glory and held it for some years to come. They can loose easily even if they were leading the minute before. My brothers and me remain
loyal to the KOP even though nothing was going right, for us.

When they were 3 goals down at first half during the European Championship final, I realized it was all gone. But when I turned the radio that morning and heard they actually won, I smiled all the way to office. My brother SMS me later, 'Liverpool won!'. It was no joke. No one was smiling, only us, a handful only, while others said we were lucky that night.

Maybe luck is what we need. We are not rich or famous, at least not like we used to. But being the underdog is gold. It like a Kafka thing, happy with others pessimism and be just what we should be. This time around, it will be different. No matter who win, It will always be the same, for us. Always

Steamboy! from the maker of Akira

After revolutionising Anime in 1988 with Akira, director Katsuhiro Otomo has now turned his attentions to Victorian England in his latest animation feature. Manchester schoolboy Ray Steam (voiced by Anna Paquin, X-Men’s Rogue) is given a mysterious steam ball by his wild-eyed and white-haired inventor grandfather Lloyd (Patrick Stewart), and warned to guard it with his life. Lloyd also breaks the news to the young lad that his scientist father Dr Eddie Steam has died while working on an experiment. Promptly after this dire news, Ray is chased across Manchester's countryside by delegates from the weapon-building O’Hara Foundation who covet the steam ball’s immense industrial power.

Google Computer

Speculation is mounting that Google will this week unveil a no-frills personal computer costing as little as $200

They built a $123bn business around online text search then diversified into video, email and, more controversially, book publishing. Now Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin have set their sights firmly on Microsoft with the expected arrival of a cut-down Google personal computer.

Speculation is mounting that Page will use a keynote speech at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Friday to unveil details of a low-cost computer or internet-enabled device that will run on a new operating system developed by Google. - MediaGuardian

That is something to look forward to. Microsoft is looking dull and old already.

Apa itu sajak?

"sebuah sajak yang menjadi adalah suatu dunia. dunia yang dijadikan, dicipta kembali oleh si penyair. diciptakannya kembali, dibentukkannya dari benda dan rohani, keadaan alam dan penghidupan sekelilingnya, dia juga mendapat bahan dan hasil-hasil kesenian lain yang berarti, berhubung jiwa dengan dia, dari pikiran-pikiran dan pendapat-pendapat orang lain, segala yang masuk dalam bayangannya, anasir-anasir atau unsur-unsur yang sudah ada dijadikannya, dihubungkannya satu sama lain, dikawinkannya menjadi satu kesatuan yang penuh (indah serta mengharukan) dan baru, suatu dunia baru, dunia kepunyaan penyair itu sendiri."
