Kelantan juara Piala FA

Kelantan mempertahankan kejuaraan mereka apabila menang tipis 1-0 ke atas Johor Darul Takzim FC dalam perlawanan akhir Piala FA di Stadium Nasional Bukit Jalil semalam.

Norfarhan Muhammad menjaringkan gol buat Kelanatan pada minit ke-14.

Ramai terkejut apabila JDT mengeluarkan penyerang kebangsaan Safee Sali, yang hanya beraksi lebih kurang 20 minit, dan menggantikan beliau dengan Leonel Nunez.

Namun JDT masih tidak mampu membolosi pertahanan Kelantan dan keputusan 1-0 kekal sehingga akhir perlawanan.

Ini merupakan kemenangan manis buat Kelantan setelah terlepas peluang menjuarai Liga Super. Berbaki dua perlawanan, Kelantan kini berada di tangga kelima dalam liga.

GST shevled - but why?

Consumer groups want the government to make a stand over the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) which has now been shelved pending further studies.

The groups claim thorough studies should have been conducted before the government’s announcement to introduce GST.

“Why propose something if no proper studies were done in the first place? It is akin to testing waters,” said Muslim Consumer Association Malaysia (PPIM) executive secretary Nadzim Johan.

“We are not against the GST but we need to know the details and till today we don’t know what are the mechanics of the GST that will be adopted in Malaysia. Are we going to use the Singapore model? What is the percentage of GST? So how can we agree to something which remains unclear till today?” he asked.

Federation of Malaysian Consumers Associations (Fomca) secretary-general Paul Selvaraj admitted the GST was important for the nation to generate income.

“But the importance and relevance of the GST must be seen,”…

Audi Q7 untuk dua pemain terbaik JDT

KENYATAAN MEDIA DYAM TUNKU ISMAIL SULTAN IBRAHIM, BERTARIKH 27HB JUN 2013


Saya ingin mengucapkan tahniah kepada kedua-dua pasukan Johor Darul Takzim dan Kelantan kerana telah berjaya melayakkan diri ke peringkat akhir pertandingan Piala FA. Kedua-dua negeri telah berusaha dengan bersungguh-sungguh bagi meningkatkan taraf bolasepak di negara ini, dan kini sukan tersebut kembali menarik minat penyokong dari seluruh tanah air.

Bagi perlawanan pada Sabtu ini, dan perlawanan-perlawanan pada masa akan datang amnya, saya menyeru kepada para penyokong supaya sentiasa menjaga disiplin dan tingkah laku. Elakkan dari mencetuskan sebarang kekecohan dan provokasi, serta sentiasa patuh kepada arahan pegawai-pegawai keselamatan yang bertugas. Saya berharap penyokong daripada kedua-dua pasukan menunjukkan semangat kesukanan dan persaudaraan. Sehubungan itu, akan diadakan satu perjumpaan ramah mesra di antara penyokong Johor dan Kelantan di kawasan rehat Seremban, lebuhraya Utara-Selatan.

When loyalty does not pay

KLFA have been given several advertising boards in major streets in KL to generate income. It would be interesting if KLFA could reveal the exact numbers received from the outdoor advertising.

KLFA also boasts an academy. That too can generate income if it is managed well.
But KLFA have made no effort to engage with their fans. It is the supporters who have been creating Facebook pages to share information about the city side. The official KLFA website has not been updated as the latest news is of their match against UiTM on March 29.
The team were plagued with allegations of match-fixing, prompting supporters to hold up banners that screamed “Fan 0 Bookies 5” at Cheras Stadium in May. This led to their sole sponsor to pull out.
KLFA have 19 executive members. How many have contributed to the team? Do any of them now have a game plan?
KLFA can continue to beg for sympathy or get their act together by taking football seriously. The ball is at your feet, KLFA.

State of emergency declared in Muar

Natural Resources and Environment Minister G. Palanivel in his latest Facebook posting announced that Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak had declared emergency status in Muar and Ledang with immediate effect after the Air Pollutant Index (API) readings there reached more than 750 at 7am today.

"Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak has agreed to declare emergency status in Muar and Ledang with immediate effect after the API readings reached more than 750," said Palanivel as quoted by national news agency Bernama.

The Department of Environment (DoE) reported that the API reading in Muar as at 7am today was at 746.  

However, at 11am, the API reading in Muar reduced slightly to   690 but was still at the hazardous level.

Logan as MHC CEO? EMGS admits visa woes

Former international K.Logan Raj (pic: second from right) has revealed he is interested to take on the role as the Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC) chief executive officer.

Logan, who played for the country in two Commonwealth Games (1998 and 2006) and was the project director for a telecommunications company, is expected to submit his resume to MHC today.

But will Logan be able to withstand the pressure working in MHC? Will Logan suffer the same fate as another former international Maninderjit Singh?

Read Logan's thoughts in Mailsport today. Also read about supposed talks that a well known figure in the sports scene has been in talks with certain quarters to take over the MHC general-secretary role.

Apparently the current MHC general-secretary Johari Aziz is set to quit citing "health reasons". But Johari rubbished such talks by saying "I'm sihat walafiat, Insya Allah!"

Naim shoots back; proposals are never easy

MalaysiaNational Cycling Federation (MNCF) deputy president Datuk Naim Mohamad has hit back after being chided by Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin for announcing the construction of a Class 1 covered velodrome on Monday.

Naim said his statement was not out of place even though a final decision had not been made by the ministry.
“I have no intention to make any decision for any party but I know what I am saying,” said Naim, in a statement to members of the media, yesterday.

“My view is not out of place ... I did not jump the gun.”

GPs claim loss of business; KJ to speak to his officers

General practitioners in the country are now crying foul over the monopoly of a certain medical company under Education Malaysia Global Services which is allowed to carry out the mandatory medical screening on foreign students.

Some doctors claim profit sharing, or better known as fee splitting, is being practiced and this goes against the medical code of ethics.

Those who were involved in carrying out medical tests for foreign students claim they suffer a loss of business between RM10,000 to RM15,000 a year.

The Malaysian Medical Association insists they have not been formally told about EMGS's exclusive tie-up saying monopoly is not accepted among the fraternity. However, MMA acknowledged such matters were raised during its recent annual general meeting.

For the record, the foreign student who spoke to The Malay Mail about the delays in her visa application has been given the assurance by the Immigration Department that her matter will be "looked into".

Foriegn students shying away from Malaysia

It was a company set up to be a one-stop centre for foreign students. The company - Education Malaysia Global Services (EMGS) - is to market and promote Malaysia as an education hub.

Yet, foreign students are crying foul over the delays in visa application since the company was set up in February.

Players in the industry claim loss of business while others question the monopoly practiced by the company which was set up by the then Higher Education Ministry.

Where's my whisky?

Some are badmouthing, others are unearthing past secrets. Such intense lobbying raises eyebrows. Even former OCM vice-president Datuk Seri Ibrahim Saad was quoted by Mailsport yesterday that he has never experienced such a “hostile environment” during his tenure.

Tunku Imran has a big job ahead of him, to eliminate any possible infighting among his new board.

What about fairplay, teamwork and the spirit of sportsmanship? And to think sports is free from politics.

Perhaps Pakatan Rakyat ought to hold their Black 505 gathering in front of Wisma OCM. If that happens, I will be watching the fun — minus a glass of whisky in my hand.

Harimau Malaya kalah lagi, Azzuddin tetap di FAM

Skuad bola sepak kebangsaan melengkapkan Jelajah Australia dengan episod duka selepas kalah 2-0 kepada juara National Premier Leagues-New South Wales (NSW), Marconi Stallions FC, 2-0 di Stadium Marconi, Bossley Park, Sydney, semalam.

Skuad Harimau Malaya bimbingan Datuk K. Rajagobal sebelum ini kalah 3-2 kepada Canberra FC pada aksi sulung, Khamis lepas sebelum bangkit mencatat kemenangan dengan membelasah Sydney Olympic FC, 4-0, lima hari kemudian.

Sementara itu, Setiausaha Agung Persatuan Bola Sepak Malaysia (FAM) Azzuddin Ahmad (gambar) berkata beliau tidak akan berundur daripada jawatan yang disandangnya ketika ini walaupun ada segelintir pihak yang mahu beliau mengosongkan kerusi berkenaan secepat mungkin.

Outsiders meddling with OCM election?

Isthere a conspiracy to oust certain “unfriendly” individuals from the Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM)?

OCM members will cast their votes on June 22 to select office bearers for the 2013-2015 term. Talks within Wisma OCM, however, suggests that certain quarters want “their list of candidates” to win the elections.

OCM officials are often at loggerheads with several individuals from agencies within the Sports Ministry.

However, former OCM vice president Ibrahim Saad said such practices should not occur.

“If true, then I am disappointed. There should not be any preferable candidate list and members should be given the freedom to choose suitable candidates for the post,” said Ibrahim.

Some called it a "penderitaan".

Some said have to "siapkan kotak".

There are those who blame it on Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin for "main sentimen kekeluargaan" (don't quite understand what that is suppose to mean).

It looks several individuals within the National Sports Institute were not too excited over the return of         Dr Ramlan Aziz as its chief executive officer.

'FC Canberra kecewa dengan akhbar Malaysia'

PERSATUAN BOLASEPAK MALAYSIA SIARAN MEDIA 11 JUN 2013

FC CANBERRA KECEWA DENGAN LAPORAN AKHBAR-AKHBAR TEMPATAN MALAYSIA
The Canberra Football Club melahirkan rasa amat kecewa dengan laporan akhbar-akhbar tempatan Malaysia yang seolah-olah memperlekehkan kemampuan Kelab tersebut. Presiden Canberra FC, Marco Vrkic dalam suratnya kepada Pengurusan Pasukan Bolasepak Kebangsaan Malaysia, berkata pihaknya merasa amat kecewa kerana pasukan mereka dikatakan terdiri daripada juruletrik, mekanik dan tukang paip. Menurut Vrkic, Canberra FC, telah melahirkan ramai pemain seperti Ned Zelic, Jospi Simunic dan Tony Popovic dan lain-lain. Ramai pemain FC Canberra yang beraksi ketika menentang Malaysia pada 6 Jun lalu sedang dan akan menjalani ujian pemilihan bersama beberapa Kelab A-Leaque, malah ada yang sudahpun bermain di Asia dan seorang lagi akan kembali ke England untuk ujian pemilihan kali kedua.

Wan Zack 'frustrated'?

UPDATE June 12 10.21am: Now Harimau Muda A coach Ong Kim Swee is frustrated as talks of 'interference' from an M-League team heightens.

Apparently he is "frustrated" with the support system with his Japan club Ryukyu FC.

It is obvious he is tired of being sidelined for almost two months as his injury does not seem to get better.

Those close to him claim he is not ruling out the possibility of returning to Malaysia.

Could national player Wan Zack Haikal Wan Noor return to the M-League?

He admitted there were shortcomings, but as a true professional, he would prefer to sort it out with the concerned parties.

Unsympathetic truth

The outburst did not go down well with those within FAM. After all, Tunku Ismail Ibrahim is serving a six-month suspension for lambasting the national FA over the poor quality of referees and allegations of matchfixing among teams in the M-League earlier this year.
He now joins the list of “infamous” personalities, including the likes of Kelantan FA president Tan Sri Annuar Musa, Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin and Perlis FA president Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim, who have taken a swipe against FAM.

Many argue Tunku Ismail needs to abide to his suspension by staying out of football matters. After all, a bad law is still a law.

But if we were to sidestep from “protocols” — FAM or royalty — Tunku Ismail had said what many commoners, including journalists, have been saying in the past — FAM hardly listens.

How many more deaths?

A Japanese man who was arrested for brandishing a knife at auxiliary police after trespassing into a university near here on June 2, was found hanged at the grille of his lock-up cell at the USJ 8 police station, Subang Jaya, early Saturday.

The full report by national news agency Bernama is seen here.

Prior to this, there were eight recorded deaths in police custody. They include the case of 42-year-old P. Karuna Nithi at the Tampin police station on June 1, N. Dharmendra 32, who died in Kuala Lumpur on May 21 and R.James Ramesh 40 who died in Penang on May 26.

Three policemen were charged for murder over the death of Dharmendra last Wednesday while a manhunt for the fourth suspect takes place.

The deaths have grabbed attention worldwide as seen in this AFP report published in Gulf Times.

And the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil will be closed - yet again!

What about the contractors who were tasked to do the upgrading works? Do they get away despite the shoddy work?

Steroids hub racket exposed

With just a click of the mouse, you can buy anabolic steroids without any prescription!

The Malay Mail, in its investigation, found several Facebook accounts and websites selling drugs including Anabol, D-bol and Testolic, in the open.

This came about after the Wall Street Journal reported that US President Barack Obama had revealed a worldwide steroids trafficking operation, apparently “partly managed in Malaysia”, which targets large-scale traffickers including the Mexican Tijuana cartel.

Posing as a budding bodybuilder, this writer contacted three suppliers online and obtained confirmation they sold anabolic steroids and testosterone enanthate which could be delivered to the client.

KENYATAAN MEDIA OLEH DYAM TUNKU ISMAIL IBNI SULTAN IBRAHIM, TUNKU MAHKOTA JOHOR – BERTARIKH 5 JUN 2013
Melihat keadaan semasa dalam FAM, sukar membayangkan akan berlaku peruahan-perubahan positif dalam landskap bolasepak Negara ini. Mungkin dua puluh tahun daripada sekarang pun, kita akan menghadapi kemelut yang sama. Kita lebih gemar mengundang pasukan-pasukan luar seperti Chelsea untuk beraksi di sini, tetapi mengabaikan pembangunan bakat baru dari kalangan belia dan hal-hal kritikal berkaitan bolasepak Negara.
Apabila saya dikenakan tindakan penggantungan selaku presiden PBNJ, saya dimaklumkan bahawa tiada sesiapa pun berada di atas undang-undang. Sebelum ini, segala hukuman akan dijatuhkan oleh Lembaga Disiplin dan Tatatertib FAM. Tetapi dalam kes Pahang menentang Johor Darul Takzim dalam perlawanan separuh akhir Piala FA, hukuman telah dijatuhkan oleh Jawatankuasa Pertandingan Tempatan. Kita juga tidak diberikan ruang untuk membuat sebarang rayuan atas denda tersebut. …

Tak payah nak berlagak ada pasukan bola sepak. Nak main dalam liga, tapi duit tarak!

Tak payah nak berangan beli 'Ferrari', 'Nissan GTR' recon pun tak mampu. Beli 'Kancil' second hand model tahun 2001 pun cukup lah.

Tapi pasukan yang bermain dalam liga-M ini impian besar. Nak angkut player mahal-mahal. Takde duit takpe, duit kerajaan negeri kan ada?

Ingat duit kerajaan negeri, iaitu duit Rakyat tu bapak hang punya ka? Daripada sponsor pasukan bola, baik repair jalan, lampu jalan.

Persatuan Bola Sepak Perlis dah mengaku memang dah pokai. Katanya tengah berusaha cari wang, harap-harap duit kerajaan negeri. Gaji pemain tertunggak, dah masuk bulan ketiga main tanpa gaji.

Bulan Ramadan dah nak tiba. Raya pula awal Ogos. Takkan nak recycle baju Raya tahun lepas. Mana glamour bro?

“My boss Muthusamy told me you called. The contract is between us and KLFA. Who are you to interfere?

A quick check with the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM) revealed the Klang-based travel agency registered losses of RM92,661 in 2007 despite having earned a profit of RM15,544 in 2006.

In 2006, the company had zero non-current liabilities but registered RM1.1 million in 2007. The company’s revenue was valued at RM4.8 million in 2006 but dropped to RM176,560 a year later.

Foolish 'fans'

Security was lax, as Ultras Malaya supporters entered the  hockey stadium at 6pm, while waiting for the Johor and  Pahang FA Cup semi-finals to start at 8.45pm at the adjacent  soccer stadium.

The soccer fans were, at first, supporting the hockey  players with drums and constant singing and chanting.


However, with nine minutes left in the match, a group of  the soccer fans went close to the sideline and started taunting  the Korean coach Kim who also double up as an umpire.

They shouted racist words and showed him the index  finger, which angered the coach and he ran to the sidelined to  confront them.

There were no Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC)  officials watching the match, and the Malaysian players as  well as officials were the ones who had to defuse the situation  all by themselves.
