Oh Sizuka~

Tiada yang umpama kasih yang pertama
Ku luaskan indera merangkul adinda
Tiada yang sejati tiada yang seindah
Kasihmu ku bawa ke mana saja

Di langit bumi kota Nagoya
Berputik cinta ku semula
Sekian lama ku kecewa
Hadirmu bagai lentera
Hampir layu ku separuh mati
Di belai ku kasihmu bersemi
Kau suntikku lalu kau bisik
Kalimah indah berserta detik
Mata terpejamku celik
Semangat berputik
Kerna kau tak peduli
Trimaku sepenuh hati
Mata terpejamku celik
Semangat berputik
Kerana kau beri Mentari
Kembali Percaya diri

Oh Sizuka
Ku tunggumu
Oh Sizuka
Ku tunggu panggilanmu

Oh sizuka konichiwa
Apa Khabarmu
Oh sizuka ku tak lupa
Ingatkah kamu
Oh sizuka Bila waktu
Lamaku tunggu
Oh sizuka Ku tunggu panggilanmu

Aishiteru sayang Sizuka
(Tunggu ku di sana)
Kisu shite mo-ii Sizuka
Itsumo suki-dayo Sizuka
(Kita kan bersama)
Aishiteru sayang Sizuka
(Ke akhirnya)

Manchester United 4-0 Hull City

Wayne Rooney scored four times to send Manchester United top of the Barclays Premier League.

Rooney put United in front after just seven minutes. And, after coming through some worrying moments in the second period, two goals in three minutes from the England star completed his fourth United hat-trick before he added another for good measure in stoppage time.

Boaz Myhill's heroics earned the Tigers a draw at Tottenham Hotspur last week and the Wales international raced out of his penalty area to ensure Rooney did not get on the end of Michael Owen's pass.

There was to be no clean sheet for Myhill this week though as, after Hull had only half-cleared Nani's corner, Park Ji-sung invited Paul Scholes to shoot from long range with an excellent lay-off.

Myhill could not hold Scholes' venomous 30-yard effort and, after taking one touch to control the rebound, Rooney fired home his 17th goal of the season with his second.

Nani tried his luck from a similar distance to Scholes but could not keep his shot down.

Darren Fletcher curled over an excellent cross for Park but, under pressure from Garcia, the South Korean glanced his header wide.

Ferdinand turned a Nani corner into the side-netting before Geovanni drove his free-kick into the United wall after Scholes had sent Craig Fagan flying.

Edwin van der Sar was then called upon to turn an angled Nick Barmby effort wide after Jonny Evans' intended header towards his goalkeeper had been totally misdirected.

Rooney turned onto Nani's cross but his shot flew over after cannoning off McShane.

Nani went down under Geovanni's tackle after a neat bit of skill had taken him into the Hull box, although referee Steve Bennett was probably correct not to give a penalty.

head wide
Andy Dawson then denied Owen after Rooney had supplied the inspired through ball.

Ferdinand faed to test Myhill with a header from the corner but United were playing with a fluidity that has been lacking on so many occasions this season.

Myhill turned away Owen's acrobatic volley then, after Rooney had released Nani, Zayatte was forced to concede a corner to prevent Owen tapping into an empty net.

Rooney curled a free-kick narrowly wide against a background of almost constant noise. Zayatte was having a busy afternoon and found time to head wide on a rare Hull attack.

The pressure was soon at the other end again, with Rooney off target once more as he turned onto a chance Scholes had inadvertently set up for the England man.

A cleverly disguised Nani pass left Owen with a clear sight of goal again but McShane's last-ditch tackle prevented him from rolling home United's second.

United dominated possession at the start of the second period but there was a brief delay as Fagan cannoned into Bob Pollock, the assistant referee.

The official was flattened by the Hull man and for a while it looked quite serious. Thankfully, after treatment by the United medical team, Pollock was able to continue.

Nani completely missed his kick as he tried to clear Hunt's corner at the near post. Van der Sar took a clean catch though, setting in motion a United counter-attack that brought a couple of corners but nothing threatening for Myhill.

Rooney took over corner duties but his overhit effort suggested he would be better off trying to add to his goal tally.

Bernard Mendy replaced Nick Barmby after 57 minutes as United continued to try and find their earlier fluency.

low cross
Nani's low cross flashed across goal, with neither Owen nor Rooney able to make contact with despairing lunges.

Rafael Da Silva almost played Van der Sar into trouble with an underhit back-pass, then Patrice Evra made a fine blocked tackle to halt Mendy's run at the expense of a corner, which Anthony Gardner turned disappointingly wide.

Rooney's long-range effort beat Myhill and the keeper's right-hand post.

Owen glanced Nani's free-kick wide before Garcia was replaced by Kamel Ghilas for Hull.

Owen and Scholes were replaced by Dimitar Berbatov and Darron Gibson with 17 minutes remaining.

Mendy cut in from the by-line and blazed over before Ghilas latched onto McShane's cross and watched his scuffed effort roll agonisingly wide of the far post.

It was a reminder of just how precarious United's lead was, although nerves would have been settled if Gibson had spotted Rooney on his own and played a pass to the striker rather than chipping onto the roof of Myhill's net from 40 yards after Nani had sprung the offside trap.

United's second finally arrived seven minutes from time after Myhill had fumbled a Nani free-kick onto his own bar and then laid team-mate Andy Dawson out as he tried to atone for his error.

The hosts continued, as is their right, and when Rooney was eventually set up, he blasted his shot over the prone Dawson.

Rooney was not finished and after Nani crossed superbly from the right, allowing the striker to complete his hat-trick with a close-range header, he rounded off his own impressive afternoon with a solo effort in stoppage time.

Brimingham City 1 - 1 Manchester United

Manchester United needed an own goal from Birmingham City defender Scott Dann to salvage a point at St Andrew's as they missed out on the chance to replace Chelsea as Barclays Premier League leaders.

Referee Mark Clattenburg allowed the equaliser to stand after 63 minutes, cancelling out Cameron Jerome's first-half opener, after consulting with one of his assistants before awarding the goal.

The Red Devils ended with 10 men after midfielder Darren Fletcher was sent off in the closing stages for a second bookable offence.

The draw enabled Blues to make club history in achieving their longest ever unbeaten top flight run of 12 matches - a run stretching back to October.

Birmingham showed the tenacity and fighting spirit which has been their trademark during an 11-match unbeaten run leading into this fixture.

And in the second half they posed more of a threat via the pacey Christian Benitez and United's Tomasz Kuszczak was the busier of the two keepers.

United dominated possession from the first whistle and City midfielder Barry Ferguson blocked a shot from Fletcher at the expense of a corner.

Birmingham were closing down in typical fashion but they were guilty of some poor distribution in the early stages.

Fletcher teed up Paul Scholes in space 20 yards out and it needed James McFadden to get in an important block at the expense of a corner.

Wayne Rooney got the better of Birmingham skipper Stephen Carr, who misjudged a pass down the line from Patrice Evra, and it needed McFadden to get in a vital block at the far post to keep out Luis Antonio Valencia's shot.

under pressure
City keeper Joe Hart was tested for the first time after 24 minutes when he reacted quickly to block a shot from Rooney who had been found in space by Valencia.

It was one-way traffic towards the home goal and Rooney headed wide from a Fletcher centre.

McFadden brought down Scholes 25 yards out but Valencia's free-kick was charged down by Lee Bowyer.

Park Ji-Sung had an opportunity when running onto a Fletcher through-ball but he lost his balance when under pressure from Carr.

United appealed in vain for a penalty after claiming Carr had handled a pile-driver from Michael Carrick.

It was non-stop attacking from United and Dann threw his body in the way of another shot from Carrick.

But after 39 minutes Birmingham stunned United by taking the lead in their first worthwhile attack from Jerome.

The former Cardiff player forced a corner when his shot was blocked by Scholes.

United failed to deal with McFadden's centre, Bowyer headed the ball back across goal and it bounced off Johnny Evans to Jerome, who applied the finishing touch for his fifth goal of the campaign.

Birmingham then squandered a great chance to double their lead.

own goal
They found themselves in a two-against-one situation on the counter-attack but Benitez lost control and allowed Carrick to make a vital tackle when Jerome would have had a clear run on goal.

Fletcher became the first player to be yellow-carded after 44 minutes for a crude challenge on Bowyer.

Benitez found himself in a promising position in the United box at the start of the second half but was dispossessed by Wes Brown.

But the Ecuador international forced a low save out of Kuszczak after United had failed to fully clear a Sebastian Larsson corner.

United finally drew level after 63 minutes through an own goal from Dann.

The central defender was under pressure from Park when he turned a low centre from Evra past Hart.
Park was immediately substituted and replaced by Ryan Giggs.

Birmingham tried to retaliate and Benitez turned away from Evans and had a fierce shot beaten out by Kuszczak.

Carr, who has just returned from suspension, collected his sixth booking of the season for bringing down Evra but Rooney's free-kick was deflected wide.

Hart held onto a low Valencia drive and Scholes fired over the bar as United searched for the winner.

But their hopes were ended when Fletcher was sent off for a second bookable offence after 84 minutes for a foul on Jerome.
