Johor's three key ingredients

Discipline, dedication and integrity.

Johor FA president Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim believes those are the three key ingredients that will ensure the success of southern teams Johor and Johor United.

For the record, Super League outfit Johor FC will now play as Johor while the Premier League Johor FA team will be known as Johor United next season.


Fandi Ahmad will play team manager cum chief coach for Johor with Ismail Ibrahim as coach. Azmi Mohamed, meanwhile, is the coach for Johor United.

Among the players that will don the colours of Johor next year include former Spain national player Daniel Guiza (pic), Norshahrul Idlan Talaha, Muslim Ahmad and the Abdul Radzak twins -Aidil Zafuan and Zaquan Adha.

The unification of both teams was expected based on my meeting with the Johor prince in March as seen here.

It will be interesting to note Johor and Johor United's progression in their respective leagues. Johor FC were placed ninth in the Super League while Johor FA finished fourth in the Premier League last season.

Is this merely an easy way of getting Johor to play top flight football? Or is this a revolution of Malaysian football?

The 2013 season will say it all.

  2. This is not a sport developement but some sort like a power of ringgit for immediate succes which possibly down to chaos if wrongly managed...

    Eager to see what will be happened next season and after to this MANCITY 2.0...

    *Ringgit is not a key of succes...

  3. MANCT 1.0 is already faced the effect..they only bought the skill of players but not their loyalty...at the end, after 1 season, the players moved to the other tycoon who offered more ringgits...so there is a possibility it will be happened to MANCT2.0 as well...

    Lets see after next season....

  4. Totally agreed with Kemahkemim. Team management is also crucial in getting the right result. You can see how FAM is being handled. Even with large amount of funds given by the GOVT, the national team is stil "di takuk lama".

    What???? Comments deleted by HD? Dissapointing! If the prince wants to mencemar duli by meddling with our beloved football,then bersedialah kena tegur disana sini. At this rate, were gonna have another "im a fighter FA president that would stay on and on unti. Kingdom fall. Haisshhh. I totally disagree with the hostile takeover of johorfc, quick and instant success will backfire long term. Hhhmmm semakin bosan. Please HD,tell that prince, what he is doing is sad sad and downright wrong..

  6. Bro Haresh,

    Me thinks there is more to it.We will watch their age group development plans esp for their under 20's.This will be the main pointer to see if the ringgits are for real or for some shine from the neon.

    The hey days of Boban,Lahad Dadok,Muyhiddin,Sujendran etc..has never come back for Johor.Then JC stepped in and splashed away fortunes....but Johor continued to decline albeit some sporadic success.Then the migration of players and coaches further contributed to the decline.
    My hope is for Johor to rise (maybe now we graft the players with ringgits for instant feel good factors) and we should have the right youth development plans worked out in tandem by this new team management.

    Cheers
    JohorFan

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.
