The show must go on....

Balestier's Brazilian import Vitor Borges venturing into the Rams' heartlands So much debate had been on-going if the S.League should have a recess during the World Cup period. The argument is that with the "Greatest Show on Earth" grabbing the attention world-wide, the domestic league will be further deprived of attention and the crowds, as reported on the papers recently , are staying away. However, in my opinion (as I already spelt it out during a discussion on this blog's FB page), we simply can't stop the league just because of the World Cup. My reason being that it will cause a "piling up"of fixtures towards the end of the season. Yes, for the fact that initially there was suppose to be a recess for the league during this period when there was a proposal for a joint-tournament between the S.League clubs and their Malaysian counterparts. However, due to some technical difficulties, the whole proposal was scrapped off (anyway, I was told t

[Event] Nike Cup Singapore 2010 @ *SCAPE

Good thing was that the flood that devastated the island shopping belt did no damage to the *SCAPE , the venue of the Nike Cup Singapore Tournament (pictured above). Under the blazing sun, 120 teams from the "Central Zone" of Singapore comprised of sides of both "Junior" (between the age of 14 to 16) and "Senior" (17 to 19) categories were vie for a spot to among the top 50 teams (25 each from each category) to represent this zone to complete in the Grand Final after the tournament completed its “around-the-island” tour. According to organizers, this tournament will be played in other “zones” (i.e.: East, West,North Zones), following the completion of the “Central Zone”. On top of the Nike trophy and products, the winning team of the “Senior” category of this tournament will get a chance to head to Brazil on an all-expenses paid trip to train in Granja Comary where the Brazilian national teams conduct their training sessions. While the winning team

Some worthless relic from the past....

I must apologize for the recent lack of updating due to the fact that there are some tidy chores in my house for the upcoming repair works that are gonna take place in days to come. As such, I might see myself being tied up for some packing and clearing up some stuff along the process. The last time around saw I unearthed the two precious TNP centerspread of the Malaysia Cup era and now here are some relics I discovered during my clearing out... OLD MATCH TICKETS I think match tickets are something just like a piece of stamp that reflected well on something that happened in the past. On and off, I would always get an email from a Belgian ticket collector asking for the used tickets for those Lions' matches. Unfortunately, these used tickets below are not to be given away at any price for their significance. (Pictured above) This ticket was the admission slip to the S.League Opening ceremony on 14 April 1996 at the National Stadium where the Thai national team was in town to

And the Winner is.....

INTRODUCTION We have come to the end of the "Spot-The-Grammar-Mistake" contest based on this entry titled "Noticed the "M" or "W" effect in recent matches??" . As the rules stipulated in the second round of the contest (which was made known to those involved) that since none of the "short-listed" respond to the request to indicate whether they intend to follow-up in the second round of the contest, it was therefore decreed that the winner of the BOCAP will be decided by a "LUCKY DRAW" format. THE CONDUCTING OF THE LUCKY DRAW TO DECIDE THE WINNER OF "BOCAP" Footage recorded with ONE take... THE ANSWER.... "Tampines Rovers suffered a shock defeat at the hands of Young Lions last mid-week, before came back strongly to whack Beijing last night, and while completed their "last-of third-in-seven" when they squared off against Etoile in the mouth-watering match in JBS." The mentioned

In random order...

The acclimatization for my new camera continues as I decided to put up some shots I captured before, during and after the games... (Pictured above) Sengkang's new signing An Jae Cheul (no 7) reacted candidly after a smiling assistant referee Amos Lim ruled the ball in favour for Ivan Lovric's SAFFC after a tussle near the line. The "Rajman" - Raj Kumar , editor of the 938LIVE Sports Team, getting ready before go on air before the start of the Singapore Cup tie between Gombak United and South Melbourne . Nice leap by this Gombak player as he evaded the challenge from this grounded South Melbourne player, but it was the banner at the background captured more of the attention. Despite not doing well in the league after their fine showing in the League Cup, these boys still have their faith behind the beleaguered Sengkang Punggol. Sengkang's coach, Aide Iskandar put on a brave front facing the camera after another defeat at home.

Noticed the "M" or "W" effect in recent matches??

Geylang United (pictured above) after their exit from the AFC Cup, notched up some impressive result only until recently they lost to Balestier in the Cup SAFFC on last mid-week and Etoile over the week. SAFFC's (pictured below) topsy-tury form continue after bounced back to beat Geylang, lost to an impressive Bulls in front of live TV audience, despite coach Bok claimed his team worked hard which was something for all to convince if that's the case. Tampines Rovers suffered a shock defeat at the hands of Young Lions last mid-week, before came back strongly to whack Beijing last night, and while completed their "last-of third-in-seven" when they squared off against Etoile in the mouth-watering match in JBS. While Stags' coach Vorawan Chitavanich (pictured below, middle of the white-shirted) has not been forthcoming on whenever if the packed schedule has begun to take toils on his "Dads' Army", but the sight of "blowing hot and cold" is
