The ball is in your court KLFA.

UPDATE 2.21pm:
Indonesia-based blog Jakarta Casual, in its posting Tough Times for KL, had this to say:

"It's a shame them Malaysians who own Queen's Park Rangers and Cardiff City can't do their bit for local football instead of sending their money overseas and grabbing cheap, meaningless headlines by asking the likes of Safee Sali and Safiq Rahim for pointless trials."

----

The fans have played their part.

Now it is up to KLFA to buck up and be serious in their quest to stay alive in the Super League.

I must thank those who attended the Save KLFA Campaign drive this morning, including MSL Sdn Bhd CEO Stuart Ramalingam, KL coach Razip Ismail and DuniaSukan's Faliq Firdaus.

A total of RM700 was collected. Not much, but it was a start.

The cash was immediately handed over to KLFA secretary Nokman Mustapha.

Nokman agreed KLFA will ensure the continuity of the campaign.

But here are the hard facts;

1. It took the Negeri Sembilan FA fan club to create the Save KLFA Campaign poster (which will now be seen on at least 48 taxis in the Klang Valley). The poster was also seen on the Kelantan FA fan club facebook page.

2. KLFA has a dozen officials and one wonders the amount of ideas they will be able to come up with if they all sat together and discussed about football. An idea was generated through the one hour campaign drive to initiate a jumbo / bundle sale during KL's matches.

3. KL will not be playing any of their home matches at the Cheras Stadium. Instead they will be playing in Malacca and will incur more costs (traveling). Was this given any thought?

4. Why is there a need for another party to initiate a website when it should have been done a long time ago? Is it true a particular official was tasked to create the website but never got down to doing it? How expensive can it be to start and operate a site as blogspot or wordpress and even twitter is free?

5. The city team may not play with a single foreign player next season. Rami Ayo Hassan's contract with Nigerian side Gombe United is still in question.

6. What happened to the KL Hawks supporters club which was created with much pomp and fare not too long ago?

7. How many officials were well aware of the campaign? What was their excuse for being ignorant? If they were internet savvy, they would have known about it.

If things do not change, KL would be playing in the Premier League next season. And they will only have themselves to blame.

HD says: It was fun while it lasted. Cheers!

  1. What a sad tragedy for my team....nak nangis siot ....why can't those so called officials do the right thing and leave their post if they can't do a decent job for KLFA....memalukan that other team's supporters groups had to initiate this....

    Will part with a few hundreds for this campaign,

  2. i think the best for kl is to be relegated to premier league, then drop out of pro league and play in the FAM league, then all the deadwood officials and president would resign since there will be no point in having power kat liga tak pro(hopefully lah)..and just like Kelantan b4..after playing in liga Fam, major shake up they bounced back up strongly..moga2 the same will happen to kl.

  3. Can KL bring in foreign players from Iran or South Kore or even Japanese! There are many IRanians, Koreans and Japanese here! In Ampang there are many Koreans and some called it Little Korea. Come on! Koreans players are good. They have played in the World Cup many times. FYI, Iranians and Koreans are the biggest non-permanent resident in Kuala Lumpur?! If KL bring one Iranians and one KOreans, sure the stadium will get packed. But must find good players also lah. Don't bring in cheap footballers that played for an unknown club. The requirements should be, must be, have represent or currently represent the national football team for two years at least.

Football journo's accreditation card retracted for being 'overly critical'

Four Four Two journalist Vijhay Vick's accreditation card to cover the M-League has been "retracted" by Football Malaysia LLP last night.

The letter, signed by FMLLP chief executive officer Kevin Ramalingam, stated:
"We are open to criticism by the public, however, it has been brought to FMLLP's attention that you have been overly critical of the Malaysian League and have made misleading statements and or shared misleading statements made by third parties. This is very damaging to the image of the League and the brand that we are trying to build."
It remains unclear which articles written by Vijhay are said to be "overly critical" of the Malaysian League.
Vijhay, in responding to the letter he received last night, said: 
"I was shocked (to receive the letter). I would like to know which articles of mine that are overly critical of the league."
It is best if FMLLP explained its definition of being "overly critical". 
While the bo…
