(P.S: If you access this site via "come . to/ matchpix ", please click the "Facebook" icon after you click "HERE" when you want to view the album as that will redirect you to the album, thank you) I got myself a new lenses that I tried out on a few occasions for the past few weeks, although I would say I am still trying to get the grip on areas such as the focusing mechanism and the various settings that I'm still on the ropes. Starhub League Cup SF - Woodlands 0-1 DPMM 10/9/13 Synchronized Gliding in Air Wasn't I lucky that both teams were in light-colored outfit to make my job easier? The settings were at 1/800, f2. 8 and ISO 3200 which made the shots looked noisy, but with the dark background it helped to "absorb and focus" while snapped these swift movements on the field. Woodlands Wellington FC were unlucky to miss the penalty in the first half and paid the price to see the Bruneians back to the final for the second tim

Forkey Doe's (left) goal brought smiles to Selangor fans  Selangor fans finally have something to cheer about after their heroes' dismay domestic season by ending with the retention of the Sultan of Selangor Cup at Stadium Shah Alam. Standing thick and through with the Klang Valley Giants, the approximately 60,000 fans backed their team passionately and steered them to a deserved 3-2 win over the S.League Selection side. Due credit to the hastily assembled Singapore side, as they did give their hosts a tough time with their calm composed demeanour in front of a hostile crowd. Aleksandar Duric scored the first goal of the match Ahmad Latiff (R) sticked close to Doe in the game With that approach in mind, the visitors from south side of the Causeway drew first blood in sixth minute with a simple Aleksandar Duric-style tap-in from close range within the six yard box from the man himself to silence the Merah-Kuning folks. The score remained the same until Aussie

Pulling out from the squad of 18 are Tampines Rovers' Fahrudin Mustafic, Shahdan Sulaiman and Tanjong Pagar United's John Wilkinson with Geylang International's defender Delwinder Singh, Atsushi Shimono and Armanizam Dolah of Woodlands Wellington named as their replacement, according to axrosstheline's report published a day earlier . Further tweaking in the squad took place before the Selection crossed the Tuas checkpoint when Hanafi Salleh was called up to replace the sole Hougang United representative Azhar Sairudin who dropped out due to injury. (L-R) Hanafi Salleh and Armanizam Dolah were called up as replacement  "I was shocked when first told of this call-up after my club training in yesterday morning, as I

"It's not about me" as Stewart guided Balestier to the League Cup Glory

2013 League Cup Winners - Balestier Khalsa Buoyed by vociferous fans who packed the main gallery before the start of the game where many available tickets were made by off-site purchase, the impressive Balestier Khalsa completely dominated the proceedings of the night. "It's not about me." said Tiger's coach Darren Stewart at the post-match press conference following his side's 4-0 shutout of defending holders Brunei DPMM in the Starhub League Cup Final at the Jalan Besar Stadium. Since taking over the reins at Toa Payoh Stadium two years ago , the former Australian international helped to transform the club he once skippered from a perennial minnow to a side now being characterized as a tough combative unit. Paul Cunningham (5) scored the first goal of the night With one trophy in the bag, the Tigers could possibly in for another bonanza if they are to bag another title when their upcoming RHB Singapore Cup semi-final matches are scheduled to take

[Starhub League Cup] Woodlands Crushed Out on agony... [edited]

Agony for Shariff Samat "The penalty was the turning point of the game and we should have won the game in the first half." said Woodlands Wellington coach Salim Moin after his team crashed out of the Starhub League Cup with a 1-0 loss at home to defending holders DPMM in the semi-final. Indeed, should that spot kick converted by Korean import Moon Soon Ho in the 28th minute, the dimension of the match would have changed, especially the visitors were deemed the less unlikely side to make it to the Saturday's final to face Balestier Khalsa for their poor form in the league of late. Nonetheless, cup game is always different breed as compared to the league match with wins at all for the former setting and eventually saw a well-taken free kick in the second half by Hendra Azam in the 50th minute to seal the game. DPMM celebrated after took the lead As such, a costly error by Moon in the first half proved to be a fatal one which seems to have some damages done to

"YO-YO LEMBU" - Bulls back for the third time?

Gombak back for the third time, sure or not? I came to know that Gombak United are eying a comeback to the S.League . As what S.League CEO Lim Chin being quoted in papers saying they "are presently doing well", I am not quite sure of what does he mean by that. With a team that encountered sit out twice in recent years, anyone would expect them to be strengthened fundamentally after the first "sit-out" in 2002. "I recently had a chat with John Yap (Gombak United's chairman) and... his club are presently doing well as he prepares for Gombak to come back even stronger in the future, just like he has done before." S.League CEO Lim Chin, as quoted   But who would expect them to pull out last minute and left some of their players scrambling available spots with other clubs in a short space of time earlier this year? Having seen teams came and gone in recent years, no one can be blamed that such an application would be dealt with some skeptici
