Kien Keat-Boon Heong lose again

END OF THE ROAD?: Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong could have played their last match for Malaysia. Picture by MOHD HELMI DAWI/sports247.myMalaysia suffered a huge blow in their opening fixture of the Badminton World Federation (BWF) Sudirman Cup, when men’s doubles pair Koo Kien Keat and Tan Boon Heong  (pic) lost in straight games 21-18, 21-18 to Taiwan’s Lee Shen Mu-Tsai Chia Hsin.

“We thought we would be in control, but we were proven wrong. They (Sheng Mu – Chia Hsin) were clearly stronger in front court, and their attacking was better,” a disappointed Kien Keat said after the match.

When questioned if they should play against Germany next, Boon Heong said “It depends on our coaches actually, I think the more confident pair should play.

“As for me, I think my confidence has dropped a little after this defeat.”

Outplayed? Outclassed? Isn't it high time for the BA of Malaysia (BAM) to do something about the pair? Or should we still keep them?

Is it true that even the coaching staff have given up on the world No 3 pair?

  1. Bro HD,

    Some months ago when this pair returned from the All England (after another disgraceful exit), birthday boy bawled that their physical condition was not up to the mark.He said that the hopeless pair will be put thru a rigorous training.

    Sekarang nasi sudah jadi bubur bro.....nothing will change la.
    Now they will say a new coach is needed to kick the shit out of this pair.In fact most of the world's top doubles coaches have long given up on this pair. Coaches who promise to improve this pair are a real lying lot.This pair has reached its pinnacle.They could have been up there a little longer but they ruined it by allowing victory and fame go into their heads.
    Cannot continue whipping dead horses.Let the other pairs gain exposure. Victories can be sporadic but the experience will be beneficial.

    Hope the new Minister keeps the files of BAM, FAM and Hockey within his easy reach (kalau boleh dekat drawer kanan) , these associations are always up to mischief, putting foot in mouth most times, always creating an unnecessary rise in the blood pressure for sports fans.

    Please Mr. Minister, help us fans stay healthy to cheer our teams.

    Cheers.
    Peminat SukanJB.

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".
