"KLFA not pulling out yet"

KLFA general secretary Nokman Mustaffa confirmed the city side is not pulling out from the Premier League.

"Yes we still have money issues and yes a statement has been made but I believe it is out of frustration and we are all equally frustrated (with the lack of funds). 

But we still have time to scout for money and hopefully we will be able to find enough funds to play in the Premier League next season. Otherwise it would be the FAM league for us."

However, another senior official, who didn't want to be named for obvious reasons, had this to say;

"The president (Astaman Abd Aziz - pic) is frustrated. He needs the cash as he can't be forking out his own money anymore. It's like what you've (the author) been saying all this while, if Astaman continues to use his own money, might as well we call it Astaman FA!

"The (KL) mayor is supportive indeed but we believe there are some little Napoleons who would love to see Astaman out from the hot seat. They are ensuring KLFA don't get the money and even say Astaman is a millionaire and is able to fund the team.

"This is unfair to Astaman. Don't get me wrong, I'm not campaigning for Astaman but if we call ourselves professionals, then we should start acting like that and not be personal or emotional for the sake of the game...for the sake of KL football."

 I had a dream about this not too long ago about this as seen here - Another City dream.Also, KL has been suffering financial woes since last year as seen here, prompting the Save KLFA campaign initiated by the author as seen here.

  1. Are you an editor for the tv content only or include those content in the stadium astro website?

    I just wonder, (refering to article "Kelantan berdepan Arbil tanpa barisan terkuat"), is that the best Astro can offer?

    Apasal your wartawan tak semak prosedur FAM yang tak seragam dengan prosedur AFC sehinggakan nak daftar player baru pun tak boleh?

    Kirim salam kat Rajagopal. Dia boleh sound kat KAFA bila Shahrul Idlan Talaha report duty dengan keadaan kurang cergas. Sekarang, KAFA boleh sound kat FAM ke bila Shahrul Idlan dan Subra cedera?

    Last year, bukan kah pemain Selangor dikecualikan dari kem pasukan kebangsaan sebab ada game Piala Malaysia?


  2. For the record I am an editor for Astro AWANI's soon-to-be-launched website.

    1. Well, I hope your website can do much better. All the best.


    2. Website aside, we need the real news from you guys otherwise whats the use? We can get all the "news" from the mainstream press/media.

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.
