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.

Meanwhile, former KL coach Chow Kwai Lam described KL's relegation to the FAM League as a "shameful".

  1. Those 19 incompetent fools in KLFA and the beggars in PFA should be reported to SC and SPRM to check whether there is any misconduct. If these FA need to disband so be it. Let club football by communities and private sectors thrive in their stead.

    NO MORE FA IN PRO FOOTBALL LEAGEU

  2. Sack all the deadwoods right from the President till the players. KLFA needs to be refreshed. Bring back those former footballers like Azman Adnan, Mat Zan Mat Aris! Malik Awab, Chow Siew Yai and many mores. Let them take over the management. KLFA management should be free from any politicians helming the post. Bring in business minded people that have interest in developing football for generating income. I think both the former players and business tychoon that are serious in developing football can form a synergy to bring back the old glory days of KL. The present management has totally failed obviously.

  3. well KL tried to bring ex-players to manage the team. Businessman like subadron aziz were called upon. failed miserably. still rasuah what. and u want to call azman adnan? puii..r u sure u support kl or just start supporting since the Ultras were formed? Don't just utter some rubbish like demonising politicians and glorifying ex-players for the sake of it. Just need to pick better people, whether politicians, ex-players n players. The secret is, those who cares about the team, not about their own pockets. We had the late tan sri megat junid, ex politician hailed from perak. but loved the team as if he was a KLites. let down by the exco's again. We got tan sri elyas omar, though not a politician, but hailed from penang, and love the team and built an empire. We just need someone powerful and love the team. Right now, no one is available. Johari abdul after winning the titwangsa seat should've contributes much more rather than sponsoring 7-up to the teams. and recruit players from kampungs2, estates..surely they will play with their heart out..

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.

Why?

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…

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.

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.
