FAM appoints Dollah as national coach; Dollah says no info on appointment

The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) have today confirmed the appointment of Dollah Salleh as the new head coach of the Malaysia national team.

Fresh from leading Premier League side PDRM to top-flight promotion, the Malacca-born coach, who played for the national team between 1985 and 1996, was reportedly handed a two-year contract to replicate his local football success on the international scene.

That was reported on June 28, 2014, as seen here.

Bernama reported this today:

     Meanwhile, Dollah said he had still not obtained any information from the Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) on his appointment as the new chief coach of Harimau Malaya.         
    He only got to know about the matter through several press reports today, and said the decision was made at the first FAM 2014-2018 exco meeting, chaired by FAM president Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah yesterday.

Am I missing something?


  1. like father like son?

  2. Oh dear,...The Clowning has began!

    Are we saying and showing that our current local coaches are good for the job? What makes them to come to such conclusion?
    Obviously they're convinced by the credential, nothing more....
    What about the playing ability of the players coached by all these coaches in the M League, are they good enough to warrant the coaches who coached them to become the National football team coaches. The abilities and the capabilities shown by the coaches through their coaching of the M League players only managed to produce low standard players and lacking realization as a football player.

    HSKL says; Malaysia Bolehlah, suka-suka

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.
