Park be thy name

Jairam Ramesh, economist, once pointed out that doing business with South Korea was much easier (than with India) because either you were dealing with a Kim or with a Park! But the one Park who is turning on the heat is actually not in South Korea now. He is in England, and he plays for Manchester United.

Ji-Sung Park inspired Manchester United to a rousing victory at Craven Cottage, playing a pivotal role in each of the three goals they scored this afternoon. Incidentally, today marks the first time this season that the Reds have scored thrice in the Premiership.

First, with a brilliant run into the Fulham penalty box. Tripped. Penalty, which Ruud van Nistelrooy promptly converted. Then a fabulous assist to provide Wayne Rooney. And finally, foxing the goalkeeper to feed RvN, who tapped the ball into an empty net. The lanky Dutchman then turned to applaud Park, as if to say, "Mate, you've made our day!"

Indeed Park, you've made our day. Let's usher in the glory days once again. C'mon ye Reds!

But Ronaldo is a real class act. Quick feet, excellent crosses and terrific ball control. He is an ideal winger. The one problem I can spot with him is that he tends to shoot wide / high often. He gets into a decent position and then decides to go for it himself, which actually kills the effort.

One great thing about Park is that, just like Giggs and Ronaldo, he can play on either flank. This gives Fergie a tremendous advantage. He can play any two of his three wingers every game. It remains to be seen if Park is given a regular first-team chance.

Yeah, right. If I could buy IndianOil Corporation for a couple of hundred bucks and sell it back at market cap, I would be able to pour a couple of 100 million every year to strengthen my bench ;)
