To expect professional players to play on this surface and to perform at a sufficiently high level is simply not on. It's impossible to play a passing game along the ground unless you spend all your time on the flanks.
The federation should not allow any more C-League matches on this pitch unless it is fully grassed. It's a basic requirement that if you are playing your country's main league competition, then it should be on a suitable playing surface. said Andy in his latest blog post.

Granted for the fact that this stadium was one of the designated venues of last year's Youth Olympic Games, and for that accolade the facilities should be two notch or one level up among other SSC owned venue.

Anyway this wasn't first time I blogged about the dismay pitch condition in local football, and last May I blogged another horrify scene at Choa Chu Kang as well.
Looks like nothing much has change since last year and really serious doubt can't help but cast on those we entrust in running the facilities, I mean it can be something kind of depressing to see such an important element not well-taken care of amid the state of the game in this country.
