Thank You: The Juan and Only Juan Luis Guirado

In April 2012, I published my feature on Juan Luis “Juani” Guirado. Albeit in his 30s, he was one of the newest additions to the Philippine national football team (Azkals) worthy of recognition and admiration. It was a great way to introduce him to the public as someone on the road to becoming a Philippine football legend, and four years and 38 caps later, he has inevitably become one in his own right.

Dreams are for real!

When the Clear Dream Match 3 was announced, I knew that at least one Manchester United player would come to the Philippines, but I didn’t know it would be Paul Scholes. So when David Milan asked me to interview Paul Scholes and Andy Cole, I almost passed out. Dreams are for real!

Scot Session: Brian Reid

Brian Reid delivers more than a decade’s worth of football experience as newly installed Coach for Global FC. He may have grown under rule by monarchy, but his multiclub chronicles and European discipline make him the “Awrite! Yer guid!” choice as local commander. Former defender and now a full-time coach, Reid is just about Reid-y for his next challenge, braving the local football storm with Global FC. Global Force, prepare the bagpipes!
