For The Record...
"In an interview with Yahoo! Singapore, Zainudin (Nordin, FAS President) reiterated that the S-league will not become a "poorer cousin" once the LionsXII start their Malaysia Cup campaign."

Come down to Kallang on 2nd June

Ten years back, soon after the national team claimed its first major honour - the Tiger Cup at Vietnam in 1998. An ambitious project "GOAL 2010" was launched with the ultimate aim to see us qualify for the 2010 World Cup.

Since then, it was downward spiral all the way. The 4-0 home defeat to the "auld enemy" Malaysia at Kallang in 2002 being singled out as the darkest day in Singapore football.

Like a phoenix rise from the ashes, the appointment of Serbian Raddy Avramovic as the national coach proved to be a masterstroke.

Under the non-nonsense Raddy, the Singapore national team transformed itself from the under-achieving side of Asean football to a force to be reckoned with in Asian football.

Yes, there were dark days in the turn of the century and eventually saw the scraping of the "Goal 2010" project.

But looking back on what the national team had achieved since, can't we not say we are actually "back on track" to complete what "Goal 2010" had set in the first place.

So what are we waiting for? Put on your red top, head down to Kallang and reignite the fevour and passion of Kallang Roar.
