The Harimau Muda team’s dream of playing in the Slovakian National League (Division Two) has gone up in smoke. The much-talked about competitive stint is not possible anymore as the Slovakian League has kicked off a fortnight ago, throwing a spanner in the works of coach Ong Kim Swee’s build-up to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics. Datuk Razali Ibrahim, the Deputy Youth and Sports Minister, said in a statement yesterday three options were available for the FA of Malaysia (FAM) to choose to expose the Harimau Muda team. “The Harimau Muda can opt to play 12 warm-up matches in Slovakia against professional...

The Malaysian Under-23 squad pulled off a famous 1-0 victory over the South Korean Under-23 squad in an international friendly match at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil here Sunday.Safiq Rahim was the toast of the Malaysian side after breaking the deadlock in the 50th minute with his thunderous shot beat Lee Bum Soo in the South Korean goal after his initial free-kick was parried into his path by the goalkeeper. A heavy downpour before the start of the match made playing conditions difficult for both teams but the Malaysian boys adopted better to the wet and slippery conditions to trouble...

Something very fishy is happening in NSC regards to the supply of gym equipment. 17 companies tendered for the job, only three selected but they are all on the high sight of the other companies. The tendered has been suspended for the third time. It is learned that they are waiting for Datuk Yassin the KSU to retire? MACC should go in again, the smell is getting very bad!...

The Youth and Sports Ministry's secretary-general Datuk Yasin Salleh has dismissed the notion there was anything "fishy" in the tender process to supply and install gymnastics equipment at Gymnasium 3, National Sports Council (NSC) in Bukit Jalil. Several companies involved in the tender process informed Mailsport they were clueless to why the tender, which was first published in local dailies on June 29, 2009, is yet to be awarded. Mailsport received a list of the 17 companies, together with their quotations, but was told three companies — one belonging to a former national gymnast, another to an events management company, and the...

Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) is a mess over the sacking of three coaches. At times, I am not aware if FAM understands the process of sacking a coach, I am quite certain if Azraai, Azman and Mohan sought for justice at the labour court they will be compensated and once again FAM might be unprofessional in dealing with the situation. If you want to know how its done, ask former national B.Sathianathan who took FAM to labour court which resulted in FAM needing to settle out of court! First and foremost, all these three coaches were not given any 'show cause'...

The new leaders were elected last Saturday through a fair and constitutional election process eventhough one member decided to resign during the election process and labeled SAM with all kind of names. Read here for the interesting description by Rizal Hashim. SAM is not UMNO, MIC or MCA all the leaders who belong to this party, are given very good packages and rewards but not in SAM. SAM purely takes care the welfare of the members. When Khawari took over SAM last year, we only had 50 members but today SAM has 145 members and the team is taking a lot of...

Former Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) deputy president Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah is expected to make a comeback to the fold after a three-year break. Tengku Abdullah when expressing his readiness to come back, said it was an offer (referring to his nomination by affiliates for the deputy president's post) that was so good to refuse. "It is one offer that I find difficult to say no," said Tengku Abdullah on Sunday. Tengku Abdullah who first took up the post in Feb 1992, relinquished his post in March 1993 but returned to the fold in Feb 1994 and held the post until...

They entertained the crowd with some fancy footwork and play, whitewashed their opponents and most importantly, Enjoy FC samba-ed their way to Brazil by emerging the winners of the Nike Cup Kuala Lumpur 5 vs 5 Challenge 2010 at Dataran Merdeka. With a scintillating display of teamwork and passing that even soccer kings Brazilians would have been proud of, Enjoy FC ran riot against Belia Seri Perantau 5-0, in the final. At the final whistle, Enjoy FC’s players and supporters celebrated the win which came with a trip to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil for a training stint at the Brazilian national team’s...

SMK Guar Perahu will refine their skills at the Brazillian Football Academy in Malaysia after clinching the 14-16 age-group title of the Nike Cup Kuala Lumpur 5 vs 5 Challenge 2010 by defeating TCK 3-1 at Dataran Merdeka on Saturday. Hailing from Penang, the decision by the five boys to make the trip to the city of Kuala Lumpur two month ago was justified. “When we first heard about the Nike Cup challenge and the prize they offered, we jumped at the chance at once by trying our luck in the first round of the qualifiers at the Bukit Bintang rooftop. And...
