Tiada pemain Kelantan

UPDATE 12.28am March 17, 2012: Before certain quarters start jumping before even reading between the lines, here is my reasoning for this posting.

Honestly, I don't care about what Annuar Musa had said about K.Rajagobal and I am not going to pretend to be the world's best coach by questioning Rajagobal's selection. I'm sure he knows best.

What I would like to question is the timing of the centralised training. It is a known fact Rajagobal hardly gets time with the boys and to conduct a centralised training which will not feature several of his natural choices will surely be a set back. I do not need to be a world class qualified coach to know that.

Also, why wasn't this thought of as we all knew Kelantan and Terengganu will feature in the AFC Cup this season. It simply boils down to planning.

I spoke to a coach of a team and when I explained my rationale, he agreed. Some teams claim the fixture is packed - now this could have been avoided with PROPER planning - perhaps if we started the league in December?

Or maybe we need to play during the fasting month as well - a thought which I know several people in the FA of Malaysia are already toying with.

So before certain quarters get ultra defensive - try and think beyond the obvious, in this case it boils down to time management of the M-League. Give it a thought, it won't hurt your brains trust me.


Tiada seorang pun pemain Kelantan yang dipilih untuk menjalani latihan pusat pasukan kebangsaan dibawah kendalian K.Rajagobal mulai Isnin depan.

Barangkali Rajagobal sudah tahu keupayaan sebenar pemain-pemain Kelantan dan kini ingin memberi peluang kepada pemain-pemain yang lain. Atau mungkin tidak ingin ganggu persiapan pasukan-pasukan yang terlibat dengan Piala AFC. Kelantan bertemu Ayeyawady pada Rabu depan (Mac 21). Pemain Terengganu pun tidak kelihatan.

Sudah tentu Rajagobal lebih arif dan mempunyai alasan tersendiri. Lagipun, bukan senang untuk mengumpul pemain untuk latihan pusat.

Pemain-pemain yang dipilih:

Nasril Nourdin (Perak)
Afiq Azmi (KL)
Azamuddin Akil (Pahang)
Bunyamin Umar (Selangor)
Safiq Rahim (Selangor)
Asraruddin Putra Omar (Selangor)
K.Gurusamy (Selangor)
Ahmad Shahkir Ali (N.Sembilan)
Farizal Marlias (N.Sembilan)
Shahurain Abu Samah (N.Sembilan)
S.Kunalan (N.Sembilan)
G.Mahathevan (N.Sembilan)
Shahrudin Yakup (Sabah)
Syed Adney Syed Hussein (Sabah)
Alto Linus (Sabah)
Zaquan Adha Abdul Razak (ATM)
Aidil Zafuan Abdul Razak (ATM)
Amiridzwan Taj Tajudin (ATM)
Venice Delphi A/K Danny Kaya (ATM)
Azmi Muslim (ATM)
Fauzan Dzulkifli (PKNS)
Helmi Remeli (PKNS)
Zulharis Mohd Nor (PKNS)
Ahmad Fakri Saarani (Felda Utd)


  1. apa mksd rajagobal dh tau keupayaan sebenar pemain kelantan?

  2. few new faces, good job!

  3. rajagobal dah x relevan sekarang.

  4. Good for Kelantan. At least the players have more time to rest and fresh for the AFC Cup.

  5. Why select players from premier league as well?

  6. I believe this needs some clarification. This is an unscheduled national call up. Rajagobal intentionally picked players from teams that are NOT involved in the AFC Cup/FA Cup which takes place this week and next. It is NOT because he already knows the capability of players from Kelantan, Terengganu etc. It presents a chance to assess players he would not have called up otherwise.

  7. Ahmad Fakri Saarani (Felda Utd)!!!! speechless. Wake up la RG.

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.
