Stop whining Rajagobal, says Tengku Abdullah

National head coach Datuk K. Rajagobal (pic) must be wise enough to use the resources available at his disposal to strengthen the national squad instead of complaining.

FA of Malaysia deputy president Tengku Abdullah Ahamd Shah, who was quoted by Bernama in the same report, said;

"The players available for his selection are still the same ones even though imported players have been allowed to play in the M-League.

"As for the lack of quality players, it is his own assumption, because even before the import players were here, the same players had won the AFF Suzuki Cup."

However, the latest twist is that certain parties are trying to corner Rajagobal through FAM's infamous Article 88.

They claim Rajagobal's latest apparent 'outburst' will land him into trouble.

Really? Perhaps it is best to get Rajagobal's true intentions instead of presuming.

HD says: Oh boy...


  1. There goes Rajagopal's career as national team coach kalau big boss dah cakap macam tu...

    Pak Nik

  2. Article double standard plsssssss.....


  3. Dear Rajagopal,

    1.In Thailand (and other Asean countries) football league, they use 4 imports per team. Is Thailand doing worst than Malaysia?

    2.Due to foreign strikers in MSL, our defend must be above average. Or is it?

    RG logic, anyone?


  4. Lame excuses...pls dig back what he said when the team was winning!!!??? It's your job too to develop a player who can be a match winner. Big salary but stay in the office instead of scouting around. I think Datuk RG, you, and your assistants of Tan Cheng Ho and Fouzi Mouklas can start finding your way with another out-fit. Perhaps Pos Malaysia or NS Betaria

    Rajagopal's comments cannot be taken as challenging FAM policy. I believe that his point was that our local strikers in the M-league are not getting enough play time as the M-League coaches prefer to play their foreign strikers as their mission is only to win matches. Even if the Coaches use local strikers, again their mission is only to win matches. They have no time to develop local strikers (for national team) as they have to win matches for survival.So, ultimately, it is up to the individual players to work hard and to prove that they are capable of outshining the foreign players to claim a first team spot. On the other hand, if they dont get regular games, how are they to improve?
    I guess this is the puzzle for the M-league coaches to solve.
    BTW, Raja have to really improve our national team defence or rather the defenders have to ensure that they play their best Friday v Yemen.

    1. Which national player was sidelined in a club/state team due to a playing foreign import?

      Was it Mat Yo or Safee?

      Azzamudin and Khairyl Muhaimeen are strikers (in Pahang and Kedah respectively).

      Do you even watch MSL matches?

      The questions is, Malaysia was not scoring much goal since World Cup qualification; hence, why keep on using 4-4-2?

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.
