Their mainstay at the back, national player Do Duy Manh, suffered a minor injury in a V. League game and his participation is in doubt. The other center-backs, Dinh Tien Thanh and Dau Van Toan, are already out with injuries. Doan Van Hau, who can play at both center-back and left-back, damaged a knee in a league game and is out for five weeks. Right-back Tran Van Kien has also had problems with a foot. Head coach Chu Dinh Nghiem admitted to being concerned at the pre-match press conference. "What I’m worried about most right now is that players are burning out and [will be exhausted] for the game."

"There's only two of you and a few chickens, why spend so much?" I asked. "They bring us peace of mind," Dad replied. "There are so many thieves these days. Our neighbor even has eight cameras." My parents weren't the only ones going paranoid about security and installing cameras. My colleagues, friends and so many people I know have started to buy cameras or other similar … [Read more...] about Security cameras are a rational choice, but are they a solution?
