(The match ticket of the match)

Young Lions cruised through the next round

I must say the two MCs are kidding themselves if they thought they had a great fun in hyped up the atmosphere.

It's always a thankless job in getting the fans to join in "the fun".
I guessed since the "retirement" of that "wave conductor" of Kallang (during the Malaysia Cup), no one has been able to emulate that extraordinary feat like he did.

Nevertheless, here I was right at the top of Jalan Besar watching the returning leg of Malaysia FA Cup tie between the Young Lions and Shanzan Muda of Pahang.

Given their familiarity with the artificial turf and it's continuous offences right from the start, it's not surprise that the host took the lead in the fifth minute.

Plenty of misses and uncoordinated moves dominated the first half.
While Young Lions were faulted for not increased their lead following the early lead, they were also guilty of giving away numbers of threatening free kicks around the box.

Shahzan Muda was the dominated side of the second half.

Slick movements and better possessing of the ball by the visitors had restricted the flair of the hosts who could only relied on any counter attacks made available to break out of their half, in which resulted the third goal for the home team.


  1. well the cheerleaders have to do much better...otherwise they are ruining the atmosphere.

    But looking back in perspective, fans must not only turn up, they shld get behind by shouting, cheering, encouraging, even cursing if it works.....

  2. i think the matches against Shanzan Muda of Pahang were a little too easy for the YL who are used to play against U-23 teams of other countries.

    Also the Pahang team is in the second-tier of the Malaysian league.
