"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."

  • 2011 Sultan of Selangor Cup - (Match Day and Balik Kampong)
Malay rock legend Amy Search (pictured above) wowed the 65,000 at the Shah Alam Stadium in this annual event initiated by the Sultan of Selangor with motive in fostering relationship between Singapore and Selangor whom both shared an unique rivalry in the Malayan football history.

The Selangor veterans retained their title for second time in running, while the Singapore selection (made up of the Lions) beat Selangor Selection 1-0 to keep the honour for the third successive time.

  • S.League Match - Balestier Khalsa 1-0 Courts Young Lions(6/10/11)
The match was delayed for good 45 minutes or so before referee decided to go ahead on a water-logged pitch amid drizzling throughout the night.

I opt not to "sharpen" the shots as it will make them looked "grainier" and sticked to the default 1/320, f 5.6 ISO6400.

The compilation of the washed-out match at Toa Payoh Stadium saw Balestier Khalsa registered their first win in eight games over Courts Young Lions.

  • International Friendly: Singapore 1-0 The Philippines 7/10/11
The normally subtle JBS turned into "Mini Manila" in early October when thousands from the Filipinos expat community turned out to see the Philippines national team in action against the Lions.

However, the Lions were not in charitable mood with their mind solely focused on their preparation for the then upcoming match World Cup Qualifiers against Jordan and beat the Azkals 2-0.

  • World Cup Qualifiers - Singapore vs Jordan (11/10/11)
The fact is we lost to a much superior team that improved leaps and bounds since we beat them 2 years ago at Kallang.

The artificial field is not as scary as it was made out to be to scare the visiting teams as the two Middle-Easterners had proven that as a myth, despite the grumbles from their coaches.

  • Uniform Derby - SAFFC 0-4 HUFC (16/10/11)
It was such an anti climax when three goals were conceded in such a short space of time that did not fit the billing of this highly-anticipated match.

An early goal (a perceived back pass resulted a free-kick at edge of six yard of SAFFC) was enough to destabilize the Warriors due to a controversial decision inside the box and eventually saw the Protectors grabbed two more before the end of the first half.

  • S.League - HUFC 2-1 Etoile FC (20/10/11)
The reflective nature of the blades of the pitch at Bishan always bothers me as it tends to make the pictures look exposed if the pitch occupied large part of the composition of the picture.

Etoile coach Arena ferociously protested that his side was denied a penalty at the dying moments of their 2-1 defeat to Home Utd at Bishan Stadium.

Although, the irony was the Stars was actually leading the game for less than a minute after Kamel Chaaouane gave the lead in 48th minute before Fred Mendy levelled the scores in 49th minute with skipper Shi Jiayi netted home the winner in 57th minute.

  • S'pore Pools FA Cup Semi-Final: Tampines PL 3-1 SAFFC PL 23/10/11
Tampines Rovers Prime League squad defeated their SAFFC counterparts 3-1 in the semi-final of the Singapore Pools FA Cup at Tampines Stadium.

It wasn't not hard to see how bad the condition of the playing surface that was used the day before for a S.League game.

The lightning condition was good until the last 15 minutes of the match when the sky darken (good thing that it didn't gone into extra time).
