"Matchpix" - May 2017

(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) AFC Cup - Tampines Rovers 2-4 Ceres Negros FC 030517 Tampines' Yasir Hanapi (left) being shielded away from the ball One of the poorest displays I seen from a side representing Singapore on the international front. Tampines Rovers Football Club were seems clueless when they took on to the field against the Filipinos with the lack of courage and decisive instinct to make their way to the heartland of their opponents. Another woeful exit from the continent that one wouldn't feel sorry about it.

Hope it's not another "Toilet Washing" ...

"It is just like washing toilets. Different contractors / cleaners at different times." remarked a friend bluntly in a text exchange when I mentioned to him that the S.League is due for another review , as reported in TODAY. Washing Toilet again? (credit:dipart.com) In the same report by the Mediacorp publication, it also speculated the position of the S.League CEO, vacated by Lim Chin at the end of March, could be gone as well as part of the reviewing process to streamline the country's only professional sporting competition under the competition structure of Football Association of Singapore (FAS) since the new council took office weeks ago. Ironically, it was at the introductory press conference which unveiled Lim and his erstwhile deputy Johan Gouttefangeas on January 2012 (), the local fraternity was presented the "S.League Version 2.0" - an initiative to revive the sick man on the bed that met with limited success to be proud of.

How Singapore Cup served as a platform for others to excel further but not ours ...

Time had changed, as Singapore football now see teams from the Philippines as the favourites to win this season's RHB Singapore Cup. With the Filipino clubs' good run in the ongoing AFC Cup tournament which saw both Global Cebu FC and Ceres-Negros to be featured in the upcoming semi-finals of the continental competition's Asean zonal group, it is justify to say the footballing standard in the archipelago is on the rise. Ceres (black) ripped apart Tampines twice this year This testament is backed by Kazuaki Yoshinaga, the head coach of reigning Cup holders Albirex Niigata (Singapore) who related his team's experience against Ceres-Negros in a pre-season friendly played in February. Speaking to The Straits Times  after the draw of the preliminary round of this season's tournament, the 49-year-old said:"We have played against Ceres Negros before and they are not a pushover." NOT LONGER "WHIPPING BOYS" ... On top of the launch of the Phil

Clenched Fist To Be Unclenched

It is not as if we want to dig up the past or flogging a dead horse but having witnessed what happened for the past few weeks, anyone will feel that fist clenching bitterness of the sorry state of Singapore football. Prior to the landmark election that took place on last Saturday and saw Lim Kia Tong's slate and their aligned candidates voted into the 15-member Football Association of Singapore (FAS) Council , the main organ of the local game governing body, the whole fraternity was rocked by the raids conducted by the police on offices of FAS, Tiong Bahru FC, Hougang United, etc. Lawyer Lim Kia Tong is the first elected FAS supremo since 1965 The shocking development of events that unfolded since the night before Good Friday cast a shadow on last Saturday’s poll with calls to postpone it  after defeated presidential candidate Bill Ng, former FAS president Zainudin Nordin and FAS General Secretary Winston Lee were interviewed and later released on bail  by authorities follo
