天啊,這麼多年後,終於有人在這裏開了一間 (自稱是) 港式的茶餐廳。此前的不是茶樓 (一條友點飲茶?) 就是呃鬼佬的 buffet,還有也是沒有中國人幫襯的 takeaway。那些侍應居然還會說半鹹淡廣東話呢,於我等不懂北方土話者實是喜訊。雖然食物的味道頗為一般... 甚至有點不對勁... 但大致上是 authentic 的,況且勝在近,差不多就在樓下。我香港樓下反而沒有茶餐廳呢 (以前有一間,給領滙摺埋了,轉了做麥記...)

Man Utd's reaction to the officials' decisions

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and his assistant Mike Phelan were interviewed after the matches with Wigan and Chelsea:

Q: What do you think of Rooney's elbow on Wigan midfielder James McCarthy?

SAF: I don't know how he stayed on the pitch. Nothing done, the referee's in front of it. It was incredible.

Q: The match was refereed by Mark Clattenburg, what do you make of his performance?

SAF: When I saw who the referee was I did fear it. I feared the worst. You want a fair referee - or a strong referee, anyway - and we didn't get that. These are decisions that change the game. And he's going to be refereeing every week.

Q: But Luiz's foul on Rooney also escaped punishment, what is your opinion on it?

SAF: There's nothing in it. As it is Wayne, the press will raise a campaign to get him hung or electrocuted, something like that.

MP: We can't dispute the referee's decision. He's kept the game flowing and we're happy with that. There should not be a witch-hunt. The referee was consistent with all his decisions. We should lie low a little bit and let the powers that be take [control of] the game.

Seriously, could you shut up now Ferguson? If you are so furious about referee decisions then perhaps you could support video reviews?
