Raja knows best

National coach Datuk K. Rajagobal is unperturbed over talks that his team could be playing against "school boys" and that their stint in Australia next month could be a "waste of money".

There were claims that "the end result of the trip may not fulfill the expectations."

National team manager Datuk Seri Subahan Kamal revealed the trip to Australia does not involve tax payers money but was sponsored by Telekom Malaysia.

Read what Rajagobal has got to say in today's Mailsport.


  1. Bro HD,

    Pardon Me, since when did FAM or NSC cared for the rakyat's money ????

    FAM could very well have played the Causeway Cup matches. This would have raised the atmosphere as well as the build up for the crucial game.Singapore is no pushover...they lost to Radamel powered A.Madrid 2-1 some days ago.They have a new coach and their new make up will surely include many local lads.Singapore now has a bunch of budding local players and they are set to do well.
    Surely Telecoms can offer business class flights KL-SIN or a comfortable coach ride across the causeway for Malaysia to play the cup matches.Lepas itu (irrespective of the results)the team boleh lepak dekat Sentosa Island for 2-3 hari...then regroup for the crunch match.Matches against Chelsea and Barcelona would help the team maintain fitness and give the lads a feel good factor for the cruncher.

    Now why Down Under la, why you all want take the team so far away and also play with these kelab kelab....why the coach is agreeing to such a non value added tour ?

    Looks like someone in FAM screwed up big for the lapse in running the annual Causeway Cup series la bro......
    You know what ? Singapura is very angree la bro. FAM kancel last minute.And den they also tell the Singapura dat d coach wanna take the team go Australia !
    Why play play like this la ? Doesn't FAM and these bunch now appear like a radio broadcasting station ?

    FAM is in FM frequency, NSC is in MW frequency while Rajagobal is in SW frequency....nampak gaya betui betui ShortWave la bro !!!! much headache la FAM before the crucial game !!!

    Peminat Sukan JB.

  2. Errr...How does Telekom came about? Only ignorant fools woukd think that!

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.
