Viet Nam News By Phùng Kim Trọng The stormy season came late this year. Not until the 7th lunar month did the news incessantly broadcast forecasts about the first storm of the year heading in from the East Sea. Since the night before, the air had been deadly still and sweltering. Everybody prepared for the wind and rain that was about to lash down any moment. Fortunately, professor Hà ĐạiThịnh’s children had all returned in time for his funeral. Hoàng Thu Thảo leaned back on an armchair with her arms spread and resting on the arm pads. Her two hands knitted against each other across a belly which was as big as a pregnant woman’s. Her head bent down on her fat neck, her eyes closed slightly, as if she was dozing. For several days straight, she had been sitting in this posture, making no movements even if somebody came to inquire after her. She was waiting for the moment when her beloved husband would leave her forever. … [Read more...] about Dust

Viet Nam News I remember well the first football match I ever went to. It was an FA Cup match at Anfield in 1981. I was eight-years-old. Liverpool won 4-1 with Kenny Dalglish scoring twice. The following year I was given a season ticket for a Christmas present, which I’m guessing cost my parents around VNĐ1million (US$44). I got the kit too, which again would have cost very little. This season if you want the full Manchester United kit of shirt, shorts and socks it will set you back VNĐ5million. Now I totally understand how times have changed, and on the whole, football has gotten much, much better. It’s far safer for one. Stadiums are much more comfortable and fans are for the large part treated with more respect instead of being herded in and out of grounds like cattle. But despite all these vast improvements, I am concerned about the future of the beautiful game. A few weeks ago, Villarreal announced they had signed former Arsenal midfielder Santi … [Read more...] about What is happening to the beautiful game?
