"He may not be the Super President but he has done his best"

"...he may not be the Super President but he has done his best ability to keep us together all this while..

"...of coz there are one or two who want to move faster and call for changes. I agree in a way but let's see...we want to improve our football also..."

"...we lost there are some reasons which can only be answered by the coach, i cannot speak on behalf of the coach..."

Those were the words of FA of Malaysia (FAM) deputy president Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah during an exclusive interview with Malaysian Sports recently.

Read the full exclusive interview on Malaysian Sports.

Meanwhile, the author was reliably informed that a former player had bashed FAM during a political speech in Kampung Baru last night and said that today's Himpunan Kebangkitan Rakyat is to also "clean up" football.

 Oh boy.....


  1. there are more then enough platforms and blog and what not to be bashing FAM now they use the perhimpunan - come on have a little class

  2. HD, per my earlier comments, there's no doubt that both Sultan of Pahang and his son love football and have done "their best" but sadly their best is not good enough. We need a competent leader who can bring the best out of what we have in Malaysia. 28 years are more than enough!!! If you watched TV3 news last nite, HRH Sultan of Pahang answer was very simple,"we have good young players and give us chance". We have been listening to this for the past 28 years Haresh.

    We have enough capable leaders to lead FAM. I dont mind anyone (save for the current top 2)as long as the future president have vision and you need a good SG as well and not like current SG. Our very own Rosli Hussein fits the bill well. My tuppence worth comments.

  3. HD, just listened to the attached interview. The Pahang Prince said that part of the reasons why we loss at AFF can only be answered by the coach. So why didn't Rajagopal answer to the public? Why didnt FAM sack the coach when clearly he failed to meet his KPI? By allowing Raja to continue as the national coach impliedly means that FAM is satisfied with his explanation whilst public clearly arent very happy with his explanation.

    Time to go, President and Deputy President 1...

  4. The success and failure depends on Secretariat of FAM then the leaders will liik good. look at FAM and MHC both SG are deadwood with no ideas. Everything outsource till even letter writing. Some dont even know to operate PC and do a powerpoint presentation to sponsors. That is the cause to all problems. Both SG must go to save malaysian sports.

    1. ANon 11.07 am, SGs are appointed by the President. So the President has to go first then the new President will elect the new SG...

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.
