What's the story Bosko, FAS?

Wechselt Bosko Balaban zum FC Ingolstadt?A not so little bird alerted me that Selangor's Croatian striker Bosko Balaban (pic) is an unhappy man.

Apparently, the former Aston Villa and Dynamo Zagreb forward was supposed to take a "pay cut" due to his "unconvincing performance".

It is unclear if the FA of Selangor initiated or proceeded with such an action.

However, such talks have not disturbed the professional player as he continue to score for the Red Giants including against T-Team recently. He has eight goals thus far under his belt in the Super League.

It's also surprising that those close to Bosko or FAS have not touched on the issue. And I wonder why?

Perhaps someone could shed some light over this episode.

Also, Sabah FA had a meeting yesterday morning and named a handful of players who they "suspect" are on the take. Interestingly, no evidence was produced.

Nevertheless, it was baffling to note the players the management had apparently named did not play in the 9-0 thrashing against LionsXII and the 4-0 defeat to PKNS.

So those who "are apparently on the take" did not play in those matches and yet Sabah suffered embarrasing defeats?

NST had today reported that Justin Ganai is no longer the Sabah coach, as seen here.

Anyone care to explain?

HD says: From now on, it is Haresh Deol, Digital Media Editor, Astro Awani (501). A new chapter, a new ride.


  1. Haresh,care to explain why do they always screen live telecast of Singapore's game (in Super League) on Malaysian TV?

    1. me is unfair to their Malaysian customers.

      BTW, Congrate to you haresh...


    2. How do you explain Sabah beaten by Singapore by 9 goals margin if not for elements of bookies in play.

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.
