Regrettably, I Dun Give A DAMN What Happened Across The Bridge ...

meme generated by ZomboDroid Well, to be honest here. It took a while before I settled down to drop a line here to share what are my thoughts that took place in the scene for the past few days. Nope, I did not tune to the channel to watch that match that day when most of those I met were talking about either online or during those breaks at work. Frankly speaking, I can’t be bother either (although appreciation must be shown and due credit should be given to those who deserved). What I knew what would happen next would be something I been expecting all along - the further diversion that caused the split in the local football fraternity that would take a lengthy period to patch it up. Someone familiar? Ever since the decision was made to send Lions XII to take part in the Malaysian League back in 2012, the reactions have been mixed. One side claimed the move was essential to revitalize the local game out of the doldrums with another criticized the plan a step backward an

Cheetahs Finally Off The Hook...

Chupe is the hero of the night for Hougang On the final week before the League adjourn for another recess due to the RHB Singapore Cup and the SEA Games, Hougang United finally broke their win-less duck by notching one-nil win over Geylang International at home. The solitary goal in the 72nd minute by Equatoguinean striker Francisco Salvador Elá, popularly known as Chupe, was all the Cheetahs needed to seal the all three points in the match that saw the visiting Eagles dominated much of the proceedings, especially in the first half when the visitors were having much of the possession in play but failed to take their chances well. It was something acknowledged by Eagles' coach Jorg Steinebrunner when assessing his team performance of the evening.

[Guest Column] - LWS to further erode the dwindling fans' support for S.League?

Since the start of the season, there were several S . League matches which were delayed from starting on time or had to halt abruptly before resuming due to the activation of the Lightning Warning System (LWS), following is an article contributed by Corinthian, a long-time observer of Singapore football, on his thoughts on the safety initiative. The incidences of potential storms that require LWS to come into service seem to be quite prevalent again and as we 've seen over the last few seasons, it's not just during the rainy season that this Sport Singapore public safety mechanism is being activated.  The LWS is "calling shots" at the S . League game, not the referees these days I do wonder why FAS (Football Association of Singapore) don't take on the authorities and argue for an exemption from this arbitrary ban which is treating professional sports in the the same way as public activities in our stadiums and in so doing take accept full responsibility
