Siapakah yang akan menjulang Piala Malaysia 2012?

Samada pasukan-pasukan masih belum sempat menyesuaikan diri dengan tempoh 'rehat' yang lama, dah terlebih makan ketupat dan rendang atau....mungkin terlalu banyak perhatian diberikan kepada pasukan-pasukan 'gergasi' sehingga kita lupa kemampuan sebenar pasukan-pasukan yang lain.

Inilah realiti Piala Malaysia.

Tidak seperti Liga Super mahupun Premier, Piala Malaysia mempunyai cabaran yang tersendiri dan pasukan-pasukan yang cemerlang di liga masing-masing tidak semestinya akan mampu beraksi sedemikian di pertandingan ini.

Kelantan, Selangor and LionsXII sudah tentu berduka cita dengan perlawanan pembuka tirai masing-masing. Kelantan kalah 2-0 kepada Terengganu, Selangor ditewaskan 2-1 oleh Sarawak manakala pasukan seberang Tambak hanya sekadar seri 0-0 dengan Johor FC.

Namun Kelantan masih dikatakan pasukan 'pilihan' untuk digelar juara Piala Malaysia tahun ini. Jika ia menjadi kenyataan, maka ia boleh dikatakan sebagai "bitter sweet victory" bagi Persatuan Bola Sepak Kelantan yang telah menempuh pelbagai suka-duka, lebih duka daripada suka, dari awal musim lagi.

Selangor pula masih terburu-buru Misi 33-nya. Adakah ianya akan sekali lagi menjadi "mission impossible" atau mungkinkah pasukan Red Giants akan menutup mulut para pengkritik dengan menjulang piala Malaysia?

Terengganu, Negeri Sembilan and LionsXII pula bukan calang-calang lawan. Pasukan-pasukan yang lain juga mampu beri saingan.

Akan tetapi jangan kita lupa ATM. Mereka mempunyai barisan pemain-pemain yang dikenali ramai dan sudah tentu ingin menunjukkan kemampuan mereka apabila bersaing dengan 'the big boys' di Piala Malaysia.

Ini hanya permulaan dan keputusan malam tadi tidak boleh dijadikan sebagai bahan ukur kemampuan sebenar pasukan-pasukan yang bertanding.

Selamat maju jaya kepada semua pemain dan jurulatih. Moga-mogaan Piala Malaysia tahun ini akan diserikan dengan pelbagai kenangan manis buat peminat.

HD kata:  Maafkan saya jika saya lebih teruja dengan Piala Malaysia daripada bermulanya musim Liga Perdana Inggeris.

  1. As to who will win the CUP, as long as it is not Singapore, I'm fine with it.

    I dont think ATM will go far despite the players that they have.

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.

Why?

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.
