Loyalty does not pay Raja

Before any party gets ultra defensive, I am appreciative of the fact that most of the time negotiations are usually done three months before the contract expires and it is right for any party to do so.

But if the FA of Malaysia (FAM) technical committee has sat, discussed and agreed to extend national coach K.Rajagobal's contract in March, then why is it taking so long to get the deal done and move on?

I really wanted to pen down the reaction from the national body. Sadly, I didn't get a reply.

Rajagobal may not say it out loud but I bet he would like to sign the dotted lines as soon as possible.

Yet, he will have to wait a little longer. Read today's Mailsport for more.

  1. Wow tukang kebun, betul ka? banyak tu!

  2. Please check what happen yesterday during coaching meeting with the great karim. One coach who question karim 'wisdom' had been chase out. What a mockery done by koam vice president

  3. Hi Haresh,

    Give him (Raja) whatever he think he deserve...if he did not deliver...he should resign...Malaysian need a result...bigger result then Sea Game or AFF lips service please rajagopal...

    Zul Miura Amizan

  4. Alahai, si general pun general bodek!

  5. Agreed with Zul...Coach Raja can ask for anything right now...But when thing goes wrong, no nonsense excuse ya coach raja


  6. Raja is a nice chap....he gives priority to the country for the interest of the game...please don't tarnish his image by claiming that he is demanding for a high salary...he is so down to earth and will not demand much....for him soccer comes first.Hidup Datuk Raja...


  7. Tukang Kebun FAM,

    Your comments have been deleted for obvious reasons.

    It was deemed "too personal". No hard feelings.


  8. King Gopal is not giving his priority to the country...but put his egoist on top of everythings...Yes, his past achievement is very good, but dont really proud about that..We need improvement...

What went wrong with KL SEA Games?

145 gold medals.
It's the best Team Malaysia has ever achieved since the inception of the SEAP Games in1959.
The 29th edition of the SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur ended yesterday. The opening ceremony dazzled those at the stands and viewers at home while the performances during the closing ceremony yesterday jogged plenty of musical memories to many.
Our athletes, the real superheroes, brought smiles through their heroic display. They made everyday a happy day.
Kudos to the officials - from the coaches, the National Sports Institute and National Sports Council - for their hard work in ensuring our athletes perform to their best.
But it was not all memorable.

'World fashion disaster' in KL

World Fashion Week Asia 2017 ended over the weekend.

And the launch on Friday at Palace of the Golden Horses at Mines Resort City just outside Kuala Lumpur turned out to be a forgettable night.


It was poorly organised.

Just as many are trying to get over the nightmare witnessed throughout the KL SEA Games, the organiser of World Fashion Week Asia 2017 has made it look like Malaysians seem to have lost it when it comes to hosting major events and hospitality.

Here's why.

Royal protocol ignored

1. The Sultanah of Terengganu Sultanah Nur Zahirah was invited to grace the event.
    a. There was no holding room for the Sultanah and VIPs accompanying her.
    b. The Sultanah was invited on stage without anyone accompanying her there (a big NO NO if anyone knows protocol involving royalty).
    c. The event dragged on till 11.30pm, way past the cut off point of the very many events I've attended with members of the royal family present.
   d. The Sultanah was forced to walk all t…

Klang run 'illegal', says Sports Commissioner

UPDATE (Dec 11; 11.58am): Sporting events approved by Sports Commissioner's Office will be posted on the Youth and Sports Ministry's website starting Dec 14, as revealed by the Sports Commissioner in her statement today. I'm glad the last point of my observation (as per posting right below) has been addressed.


UPDATE (10.57pm): A Twitter user had sent me a link by the organiser of the Klang Heritage Marathon 2017. It states that the marathon has been "postponed to Oct 14, 2018" and that they have been victims of fake news and will lodge reports with the authorities against materials with elements of defamation or fake news. Read the full statement, posted on Dec 2, here.
