تقرير قناة الجزيرة عن عمر المومني


Dzeko, Drogba, Eto'o, Toure and my cartoons

I was extremely happy to see my Goal.com cartoon " Elephants and Lions join Super Eagles in Brazil"
been shared and tweeted by famous players especially when they are the recent winners of the African Player of the Year. Didier Drogba the Ivorian star and the (2006-2009) player of the year first shared it with his Instagram.

Later on the Cameroonian lion and Chelsea star Samuel Eto'o (2003, 2004, 2005 and 2010 African Player of the year) tweeted and shared it with his Facebook.

Me and Eto'o had a brief reply on Twitter.

Yaya Toure the last winner of the African Player of the Year and also won it in 2011 retweeted it from Eto'o.

Manchester City Bosnian star Edin Dzeko months ago also shared one of my special cartoon on Bosnia's historical qualify to the World Cup.

the Jordanian national team and the idea thief

On the September 2011, I drew a cartoon on Jordan achievement in the World Cup qualifications first phase in Asia, which was a “Football” wears an Arabic “Keffiyeh” (a traditional headdress) and heading to Brazil with slogan يلا عالبرزيل (Let’s go to Brazil) and so that the illustration was later published through Goal.com the Arabic edition.


Later on it popped to my mind an idea to draw a mascot to Jordan with a business plan to establish a T Shirt and merchandising industry to supports the Jordanian national team. So I went the Jordan Football Association on the 15th of May 2012 to meet the marketing manager Mohannad Mahadeen to work with the JFA on the idea. Mahadeen asked me to draw a mascot which I made him an eagle wears the Jordanian jersey.



Later he told me that the JFA can’t afford to spend on the project because they don’t have the cash. Later I was surprised to see the JFA is asking an advertising agency to design a mascot with using my slogan (Let’s go to Brazil) and recently they are printing T-Shirts with it to sell it to the markets before the important matches between Jordan and Uruguay.

الاتحاد الاردني و سارق الافكار مهند محادين

  في تاريخ 7 سيبتمبر 2011 قمت برسمة كاريكاتور عن انجاز الاردن في تصفيات كاس العالم, و اللتي هي عبارة عن كرة قدم مرتدية الحطة العربية و محلقة نحو البرازيل مع شعار يلا على البرازيل , و حتى أن الرسمة تم نشرها لاحقا عبر موقع جول النسخة 
العربي.
لاحظ من الرابط تاريخ الرسمة: http://omarmomani.blogspot.com/2011/09/blog-post.html

 المهم خطرت ببالي فكرة رسم تعويذة خاصة بالمنتخب و القيام بتسويق قمصان تتكلم  عن المباريات القادمة للمنتخب , فقمت بمقابلة المدير التسويقي للاتحاد الاردني المدعو مهند محادين بتاريخ 15 ماي 2012 و الذي لم أجد مكتبا فوضويا أكثر من مكتبه, و عرضت 
عليه فكرة التعويذة و القمصان بالاضافة لامور اخرى.


المهم الاخ طلب مني رسمة التعويذة و قمت برسمها له و هي عبارة عن نسر مرتدي زي المنتخب مع الحطة العربية.

المهم  أخبرني بأنه لا يستطيع التعاون معي لتكلفة هذا المشروع, لاتفاجئ بعدها بأن الاتحاد قد طلب من احد شركات الاعلان تصميم  تعويذة مبررا بأن صاحب شركة الاعلان بمون (يا عيني عالفساد) و قامو ايضا بسرقة شعار يلا على البرازيل مني و مشيناها.
 و افاجاء اليوم بخبر على موقع خبرني بفكرة القمصان جديدا الان قبل موعد مبارة الاردن مع الارجواي .

Omar Momani interviews "the Running man" Vu Xuan Tien




In 490 BC, Pheidippides a Greek hero ran from the battle of Marathon to Athens to give the people the news in a story reflects loyalty and sacrifice. Vu Xuan Tien a gunner fan from Vietnam, ran a 5 kilometers on foot to chase the bus of his favorite team on their visit to his country, in a move which let Arsene Wenger that Tien is an inspiration to his team. I made a cartoon on this incidence last July and recently contacted with "the Running Man" and asked him for a special interview which he agreed.

1 - Can you give us a short brief on you?
My name is Vu Xuan Tien, I was born in 6th May, 1993 and I’m the last year student of Pharmacy Central College. I became a fan of Arsenal at the age of 5, I think I was effected by my grandfather and my father. All members of our family love Arsenal and Professor Arsene Wenger.

 2 - When you met Arsenal stars in the bus, were you surprised of their characteristic?
Certainly. I was so surprised because the players look tall and muscular, especially friendly. I was happy when Professor Wenger smiled at me. That was fantastic!!!


3 - Who is the best gunner player to consider as a buddy?
All the players are buddies ‘because I can feel their spirit, their passion for Arsenal.

4 - Where there any funny or bizarre moments?
When I was invited to get in the bus, they made applause and asked me to name the players. I named all the players (in the first and second squad).

5 - If Wenger asked for your advice what would you advice him?
 My advice? It’s very simple: “We all love Arsenal and always support the club even they had 8 years without any trophy and I think Arsenal will achieve triple this season for their endeavor.


6 - Can Arsenal win trophies this season, especially with the arrive of Ozil?
Yes, I do believe that Arsenal will win triple this season after such a long time of effort and sacrifice. I’m sure this year will be Arsenal’s year. Regarding Ozil, he’s a great player and deserved with what Arsenal spent for. But Arsenal is successful for its consolidation, every player plays important role in the club and that’s the most important.

5 - Who is your favorite Arsenal player at the moment and in history?
It’s Mikel Arteta. I was impressed by Henry and Bergkamp too. They devoted for the success of the club and helped the club get over their difficulties. That’s why I love them.


6 - Do you follow Goal.com news and of course Cartoon of the day, and what was your reaction when you saw a cartoon on you?
Yes, I follow goal.com and I watch cartoon there as well. I’m so happy and excited about a cartoon on me. Thank you so much.


7- If I want to visit Vietnam where do you recommend me to visit and what is the best food?
There are so many nice places and good food to recommend. Just contact me, I will take you at the airport and show you around to nice places and try delicious foods.


And I will of course J

Tien told me also that he is been invited by Danish Ambassador John Nielsen, and he just joined in a mount marathon competition in Sapa town, 42km challenging distance together with many professionals from other countries. Tien the Pheidippides of Arsenal will always surprise us J.
