THERE are quite a number of Newcastle United fans in Malaysia, I reckon. If they were to form a fan club, surely they would settle in nicely into my Proton Iswara. Likewise for Stoke City fans.
But the latest development in Tyneside read here has left one fan in particular, Khairul Khalid, so peeved that he has ditched his team in order to attend to his new passion - selling kids' apparel. Khairul, an old boy of Victoria Institution (I don't know what's so special about the school), has his own showroom (above) in Bangsar.
While pining for the return of the moments of yore, when Monsieur Ginola, Peter Beardsley and Faustino Asprilla would treat high octane matches like a walk in the park at the St James' Park, Khairul consoles himself every weekend at the Mont Kiara flea market. You won't find Khairul giving up any of his Newcastle replica jerseys, though!
