[Telegram Chat] - Just SHUT UP And No One Would Think U Are Dumb

Just shut up if you know nuts I would be more than happy to share insights on Singapore football with anyone interested in learning more about it. However, if someone holds a biased and prejudiced opinion of the local game, I will not engage in conversation with such individuals. These individuals often use the topic of local football as an icebreaker, with the ulterior motive of belittling something they know nothing about. Such behaviour is disrespectful to the unsung heroes who are working hard to improve and rectify the situation of Singapore football. The last thing Singapore football needs is to be frowned upon by those who still harbour thoughts of making sarcastic remarks for amusement. Just stay quiet; no one will think you are dumb. Thank you. - π‘»π’‰π’Šπ’” π’Žπ’†π’”π’”π’‚π’ˆπ’† π’˜π’‚π’” 𝒔𝒉𝒂𝒓𝒆𝒅 π’†π’‚π’“π’π’Šπ’†π’“ 𝒐𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 π’‘π’π’‚π’•π’‡π’π’“π’Ž'𝒔 π’•π’†π’π’†π’ˆπ’“π’‚π’Ž 𝒄𝒉𝒂𝒏𝒏𝒆𝒍 -

[AFC Cup] - A Journey of Triumphs and Challenges for Singaporean Clubs

Without much fanfare, at least in Singapore, Central Coast Mariners became the first Australian club to win the AFC Cup after defeating Al-Ahed of Lebanon. The crowning of the Gosford-based A-League side as the winners of the continent's second-tier club competition marked the end of the tournament since its inception twenty years ago in 2004. As far as the Lion City is concerned, this competition enabled teams from the island republic to compete against teams from the region. It was quite common during the tournament to see teams like SAFFC , Home United , Tampines Rovers , etc., traveling to places like the Maldives in the Indian Ocean, Hong Kong, Indonesia, etc., to face their regional opponents. Duric (left) has seen the highs and lows of Singapore's AFC Cup journey Unfortunately, many, in my humble opinion, seem to fail to appreciate what the AFC Cup has done for local clubs given the lack of fan interest and the scant coverage from the local media.

[Telegram Chat] - Comparing Is Unhealthy And Toxic

Speechless when see those comparing I am not sure if you have noticed this trend, which I personally consider unhealthy. Often, in nostalgic-themed social groups or forums, people share various forms of media to reminisce about the good old days. Unfortunately, some use this opportunity to compare the past with the present. We often hear remarks like "the present cannot be compared with the past" or "past generations were much better." I must be blunt here and say that comparing is not only unhealthy but also, to a certain extent, TOXIC. While past generations had their achievements, we should not discredit those who came after them just because of the challenges we face now. Let us remember this: Nazri Nasir lifted Singapore's first international major honour - the Tiger Cup in 1998. One of his predecessors, Samad Allapitchay, lifted the Malaysia Cup in 1980. Do you see the difference? - π‘»π’‰π’Šπ’” π’Žπ’†π’”π’”π’‚π’ˆπ’† π’˜π’‚π’” 𝒔𝒉𝒂𝒓𝒆𝒅 π’†π’‚π’“π’π’Šπ’†π’“ 𝒐𝒏 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒑

[Telegram Chat] - Voice Vs Accountability In Social Media

Sometimes, self-restraint online is a must The rise of social media has made it possible for anyone to express their opinions on open platforms, a significant change from the past when only industry experts or Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) would be quoted or comment on relevant topics. MAINTAINING EMOTIONAL BALANCE IN ONLINE DISCUSSIONS However, it is equally crucial to occasionally step back and reflect on how we convey our thoughts online. I have noticed that individuals often become excessively emotional when debating a fiercely contested topic, which can sometimes lead to personal attacks . I firmly believe in engaging in debates constructively and avoiding excessive emotional involvement. THE IMPORTANCE Of CONSTRUCTIVE ENGAGEMENT At the same time, it is essential to be accountable for your words and the potential repercussions they may have. Recently, I encountered a post online that I considered inappropriate. In essence, the tone and language used were undesirable and could expo
