Name a team that plays more football than Kelantan...

...and you'll get a treat from Kelantan coach Bojan Hodak (pic).

And before the FA of Malaysia (FAM) gets excited and tries to slap Hodak with an Article 88, fret not as he is NOT complaining.

As far as Hodak is concerned, being good comes with a price as the Red Warriors are playing in numerous tournaments (Super League, FA Cup and AFC Cup) at one go.

Unlike his counterpart in Selangor Irfan Bakti, Hodak insists he is treating all competitions with equal importance.

Irfan, meanwhile, has set his sights on the FA Cup. Having wounded the Darul Takzim FC, better known as the Southern Tigers, in the first leg of the FA Cup quarterfinals, Irfan is expecting the southern team to bounce back and he would love the challenge.

HD says: Very difficult to talk these days.


  1. Walaupun saya kurang senang dengan penjadualan MSL dan Piala FA, saya suka sikap Bojan.

    Matlamat adalah ke puncak, setiap kali; buat yang terbaik, sepanjang masa. Kalau diperlaku secara tidak adil - don't get mad, get even; or better; get back at a million times owed to you.

    HD, to me, Bojan is a Kelantanese.

    Why not, his passion (in football) was often missunderstood as being "gedebe" (with the match officials).

    Bagi Irfan pula, merehatkan beberapa pemain utama dalam AFC untuk menghadapi JDT, itu kita panggil "calculated choice".


  2. “Memang tiada tarikh yang sesuai melainkan mereka (Kelantan) tersingkir dari Piala Konfederasi Bola Sepak Asia (AFC) mahupun Piala FA." - Datuk Ahmad Fuad Daud, PENOLONG Setiausaha Agung Persatuan Bola Sepak Malaysia (FAM) -

    HD, any comment?

    Is he a candidate to replace Judin?

Football journo's accreditation card retracted for being 'overly critical'

Four Four Two journalist Vijhay Vick's accreditation card to cover the M-League has been "retracted" by Football Malaysia LLP last night.

The letter, signed by FMLLP chief executive officer Kevin Ramalingam, stated:
"We are open to criticism by the public, however, it has been brought to FMLLP's attention that you have been overly critical of the Malaysian League and have made misleading statements and or shared misleading statements made by third parties. This is very damaging to the image of the League and the brand that we are trying to build."
It remains unclear which articles written by Vijhay are said to be "overly critical" of the Malaysian League.
Vijhay, in responding to the letter he received last night, said: 
"I was shocked (to receive the letter). I would like to know which articles of mine that are overly critical of the league."
It is best if FMLLP explained its definition of being "overly critical". 
While the bo…

UPDATE (March 17, 9.52am): As of late last night, it's status quo at Wisma FAM.
