Celebrating legends on stage; Tony slams report, calls it gutter press

It would have been easy to point out what could have been done better in SuperMokh The Musical.

For starters, the younger generation – who only know the late Datuk Mokhtar Dahari as a former international – could have been educated about his younger days and how he picked up the art of dribbling.

Many would want to know more about Setapak-born Mokhtar – just like the many who enjoyed learning about cartoonist Datuk Mohammad Nor Khalid through Lat, the Musical.

I managed to watch SuperMokh at Istana Budaya on Friday night. Former international Reduan Abdullah and his family, who watched the show for the second time, were present and so was Mokhtar’s wife Tengku Zarina Tengku Ibrahim.

It was the same night Malaysia lost 1-0 to Bahrain in an Asian Cup qualifying match in Manama.

I was eager to see the life of my former SRK Jalan Kuantan senior played on stage.

Meanwhile, Queens Park Rangers owner Tony Fernandes (pic, right) slammed reports over possible record-breaking fines that could be imposed on the club.

“It is all rubbish. It is gutter press.”

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".
