Raja: I'm no coward

National coach K.Rajagobal bares it all as he speaks about the national team and efforts to get rid of him - as published in Mailsport today.


  1. Datuk Raja, jangan beri terlalu banyak alasan!! Be humble, nothing wrong with it. You yang pilih untuk main dan beraksi ketika bulan puasa dan you bersetuju bermain pada jam 11 pagi yang mana waktu itu tidak sesuai dengan 'mentaliti' pemain Malaysia. Jam 11 pagi waktu pemain - pemain 'melepak' selepas training. Waktu itu pada bulan puasa pemain - pemain pasti tidak ada tenaga. Sudah tentu mereka tidak dapat memberikan aksi terbaik. Sudah tentu kena tibai dengan kelab kedua tercorot Jepun. Pendekatan you untuk lawan Chelsea dan sekarang Barcelona kurang tepat Datuk Raja. You sudah tidak ada taktik kerana sandaran dengan 'pemain - pemain saya' sudah tidak menjadi. Sekarang peminat pun dah konfius yang mana jadi keutamaan, Barcelona atau nak lawan Bahrain, Kelayakkan Piala Asia? Rasanya kedua - dua perlawanan you akan gagal, sorry to say...


  2. Of course Rajagobal wouldn't want to resign. It doesn't take genius to figure it out. Look at his pay checks, you will know the answer!!!

  3. Coward ka braveheart ka itu peminat takda kisah. yang penting menang itu game...competitive ka, friendly ka...kasi menang dulu. jangan cakap banyak...dulu sudah menang wokay...bagus...but please..forget it and create another one.

  4. Let the people in FAM make the decision in the case Dato Rajagopal as they are the people who with consensus decided the road map for the national teams. Knowing the present status of team , yet they decided to try their luck to redeem some pride of winning some matches against clubs in Australia and Japan. But just too bad, it got screwed up and Rajagopal got the blame. What about the decision makers ? Are they not qualified as council members to make decisions ? Politicians , most of the time makes the wrong decisions and get away with it but Rajagopal is the scapegoat now. Get right people to run FAM , then you can see the light at beginning of the tunnel. Selamat Hari Raya and enjoy the Bliss of Ramadhan.


  5. Nothing else to say. Everybody have already said whatever they want to say from FAM President right down to the poor football fan! (who no one will listen to)
    So Coach Raja, all you have to do is beat China for a start (upcoming friendly) and follow that up with a win v Bahrain and qualify for the Asian Cup 2014. Is that impossible? BTW, it does not matter if we put up a good performance or not as we ONLY need to WIN! Get Malaysia to the Asian Cup & you will be a hero. We will pray that you can do this.

  6. HD, setuju kontrak Rajagobal ada lagi sampai hujung tahun. Tapi :

    1.Siapa yang bagi kontrak yang amat panjang tempoh masanya sampai ke hujung nyawa (too close to the tournament date)?

    2.Kenapa tiada peruntukan untuk "reassess performance" ie selepas Piala AFF Suzuki yang lepas?

    3.Polisi siapa sebenarnya dahulu yang kata ranking tidak penting?

    4.Jika Subahan yang pantau Rajagobal, siapa yang pantau Subahan?

    5.Ada tengok pasal komen Maurinho tentang taktikal Malaysia di Chelsea TV?

    Untuk FAM, saya harap HD boleh panjangkan soalan berikut :

    1.Di sebalik dok sibuk nak kan ranking top 120 FIFA, tak ada hajat nak naikkan gred Liga Malaysia kah? Tak kan tak tahu gred liga kita berada dibawah gred Liga Singapura dan gred Liga Thailand.

    2.Bukankah lebih baik letak matlamat untuk capai ranking top 16 atau top 24 Asia (16 atau 24 pasukan yang akan bermain di Piala Asia?)

    3.Adakah ada perancangan untuk memberikan hak penyiaran media kepada pasukan-pasukan?

    4.Dimanakah sinergi kerjasama antara jurulatih Harimau Malaya, jurulatih Harimau Malaya dan persatuan jurulatih?

    5.Siapa yang menetapkan KPI Rajagobal dan Subahan?

    p/s tidak semua malah majoriti bekas pemain dan jurulatih negara meminta Rajagobal sendiri yang meletak jawatan dan bukannya dipecat.

    p/s berbaloi kah RM untuk kos pengurusan bila bolos 12 gol tanpa balas di Jepun?


  7. I agree that Raja is not a coward. He is just a lousy coach. - Mohammad

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.
