Liverpool FC are Second Best

On Sunday, the curtain fell on both the Scottish Premiership and the English Premier League.
In the former, Celtic defeated Dundee United 3-1 in the last game of the campaign. They finished the season with a record 99 points (versus 79 points last year), a big improvement. Their goals came from Anthony Stokes (64), Georgios Samaras (76, penalty) and Kris Commons (82) while Dundee United replied through midfielder Filip Twardzik (79, own goal).
In the latter, Liverpool needed to win against Newcastle United and Manchester City needed to lose against West Ham United in order for the Reds to lift the EPL trophy. We did prevail 2-1 over the Magpies (Martin Skrtel, 19, own goal; Daniel Agger, 63; Daniel Sturridge, 65) but Chelsea beat the Hammers 2-0. And so, the Citizens snatched the EPL crown.
The title still eluded us because we are only second best.
On Wednesday, I was at Damansara Perdana to attend the Gamuda Toastmasters meeting and it was good to hear good speeches that were accompanied by good evaluations. I was one of the speech evaluators. The meeting started two minutes late and we ended even later, i.e. sixteen minutes behind schedule. I am scoring this meeting a 4.5 over 10.
