Near dead Silence (Last post for year 2005)

After the uproar caused by the SEA Games squad's failure to achieve something out of nothing, the local scene seems quiet lately.

Except for some active discussions going on at some online local football based forums, it's relatively quiet .

Osagie Ederaro had left Singapore after an impressive showing with Balestier, with words of that the negotiation for an extension had broke down between the two parties.

Another Nigerian Greg Nwokolo will be headed south to ply his trade in the Indonesian league.

With the news of both Ahmad Latiff and national team skipper Aide lskandar joined Johor, are probably the notable transfer news so far (and l was told the duo fitted in nicely)

Maybe that's an Asian mindset or whatsoever, local fans don't really know who is going to feature in their teams until the season is about to kick off.

Unlike the European clubs who always made known to the media who they are targeting at. Most of the off season negotiations take place behind the scene.

Perhaps the fear of "hijacking" that's why some of the discussion took place behind the curtain.

Anyway, having tagged closely behind the happenings of the local scene, l will heading for a short break, thus taking this opportunity to wish all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

  1. I don't think it's just a case of "fear of hijacking". The clubs aren't exactly making everything a secret - it's just that I suspect the media guys have been in too much holiday mood to get their hands off the turkey drumsticks and onto the keyboards. ;)

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
