My Malaysia: World Cup 2014 Qualifiying 2nd Leg- Malaysia 1 Singapore 1


I supposed that Malaysians were hoping we could go through the next round by beating Singapore with more than 2 goals. Based on a hope by having 3 away goals, Malaysian fans flocked into National Stadium in hoping Harimau Malaya able to beat Singapore.

However, the final result saw Singapore through to the next round.

I have not so much to say. Yes, some of us may be disappointed with the result. Worse, one player was red carded at the final minutes of the match.

However, bear in mind. Somewhere, at some point, Harimau Malaya would lose. Even the best team have their moment. And this is the moment we suffered a defeat (by aggregate) after quite sometime. At least, we do not lose at home ground.

As in regards to the match, I would say well done to Singapore. They played their tactics well. Limping and getting hurt along the way during the game. Their time wastage tactics worked for them. Even for a challenge not that hard, they wasted a lot of time, be it during first half or second half. If an Oscar can be given, I would give the whole team every single one of them.

And that’s football. Yes, Singapore may have applied time wastage and play acting tactics, but it worked for them for a while. I do not know if this kind of play will work until they can qualify to play in Brazil 2014.

As for Harimau Malaya, let take this as a wake up call. Since this year you guys will be heading to defend the gold medal of SEA Games, defend it well. Win the gold medal once again to show that we are worth to be among the giants in South East Asia.

From my point of view, even though tonight’s game was not that well, but compared to what was performed for the past 10 years, I am in opinion that the game has been raised to higher level. Keep on raising the quality of the game.

Singapore team, congratulations. Even though you guys are not that professional and more like play acting, I understand you guys need to do what you need to do.

Harimau Malaya, do not lose hope. Keep your head’s high, and keep on performing well for the next matches to come. As said earlier, take this as a wake up call.

It was obvious that we lose due to lack of concentration at the back. The one goal that we let go tonight (and nights before) was due to lapse of concentration by the defensive play. Tonight have shown that even the keeper is on form, but with defenders not able to focus during the game, we will give away goals.

Hopes on the street: To see Harimau Malaya to keep on improving. Yes, they are some “lalang” will criticize you guys badly as if no tomorrow, but some do still support you.

And yes, at least we have pure Malaysians to play for us.. not imported players given nationality to play for our national team.šŸ™‚

  1. 1. suasana di bukit jalil semalam sungguh meriah sekali.
    2. penyokong2 harimau malaya berduyun2 ke stadium. rasanya majoriti menggunakan lrt. 70-75 peratus memakai jersi/corak kuning hitam, 23 peratus memakai jersi biru/corak biru and selebihnya mcm biasa,mcm nak pi shopping pun ada!
    3. 85 peratus fans yang dtg adalah remaja/belia! satu petanda baik bhw malaysian football ada penyokong nya!
    4. usop wicha ada semalam..hehehehe. celebs lain x kelihatan oleh kaca mata saya.
    5. ada kemungkinan tiket di jual lebih dari yang sepatutnya, sebab saya dan kawan2 saya antara yang hanya dpt tgk dari belakang seats. based on my observation tak kurang 2 ribu org yang tak dpt tempat duduk. kemungkinan besar lebih.bukit jalil full house semalam. (i was standing on a table with my friend and tgk match tu mcm peeping tom!)
    6. stadium stewards boleh di pertingkat kan. itu menurut kwn sy yang biasa bertandang ke anfield. apa pun tiada incident yang di luar kwln!
    7. SYABAS utk ULTRAS MALAYA, tak berhenti2 cheering and chanting the team.
    8. vuvuzela/trumpet tak payah la di jual and di bawa ke dalam stadium. sgt tak membantu utk create atmosphere yang bergema dgn sorakan penyokong!
    9. pasukan negara secara ringkas nya dah buat yang terbaik yang depa mampu bagi, mungkin ada few tactical approach/player selection yang boleh di persoalkan but definitely rajagopal knows the best of his boys!
    10. singa temasek dan todak2 import nya bermain bagus, lakonan dan taktik yang depa pakai adalah biasa dlm perlawanan high profile sebegini! expected!
    11. FAM….heheheheh..nak komen2 lebih2 kang kena tangkap..
    12- build up sebelum match singapore ni dah bagi petunjuk team harimau malaya ini sebenar nya dlm dilema dan dah demoralized kan!..and kita dah buat friendly/exhibition match yang dah mencederakan beberapa key players, and imho to play them with any big club from epl bukan pendekatan yang bagus pun utk improve their game play.
    maybe next year onwards,please la FAM bagi je pasukan2 dari liga malaysia sendiri yang lawan dengan club2 dari EPL. club lawan club, say selangor lawan chelsea etc..that’s much better! at least taktikal harimau malaya tak terjejas and mudah di baca pasukan nasional yang lain.
    13-kepada yang berpendapat player2 lama seperti zamani misbah etc patut di beri peluang, memang suka sandarkan pada kenangan.. bukan nak kutuk tapi batch batch players mcm tu sudah terbukti gagal..
    14-state FAs!!!! TOLONG BAGI cantik lagi pembangunan bola sepak tempatan, akademi bola sepak ni sume dah ada KPI ke blum??????????

    in conclusion,terus kan menyokong bola sepak malaysia, jatuh bangun nya adalah tanggungjawab kita bersama. and we must push for improvement on management side of our FA’s and FAM themselves. selagi sultan bola hanya pentingkan PAHANG adoyyai…sampai bila kita tak kemana…hehehhehehe!

    p/s: soalan dari jalanan utk encik onda…what’s ur opinion on team harimau muda main dlm liga singapore and vice versa…satu langkah yang bijak???? for me, i disagree!

    1. Jawapan untuk dawai koko+: Saya juga kurang setuju. Dan Setiausaha Agung FAM juga gagal meyakinkan saya dengan jawapannya dalam rancangan soal jawab “Dengan Izin” di Astro Arena.

You are part of people on the street. My opinion might not as good as yours. Come, please share your thoughts with us!!!
