Third Time Lucky For A Players' Union?

In a poll conducted on this platform's IG Story months ago, I asked if anyone is aware there was once an organization representing the players. The outcome of the result revealed a majority are not aware of this when there was once an organization meant for this purpose. Rahim Omar (pictured, as credited) It was during one of those random searches online for materials, it came to my attention of a meeting that gathered a group of disgruntled footballers in the early 1960s that piqued my interest to learn more about this short-lived organization. On 15th August 1962, a pro-tem committee was formed with renowned footballer Rahim Omar named as chairman of this committee. According to The Straits Times report that was published on the following day, the main objective of the group was to "seek better treatment for the players, who had in the past been duped by false promises". Among those who attended the inaugural meeting were Quah Kim Beng, Umar Rahmat, Ivan Vass, etc. wi

Did you see the rainbow? Good day to all, Plenty of things happened over the last few days. ➡️ The resuming of the AIA Singapore Premier League. ➡️ The two-and-half-year partnership between Lion City Sailors and Borussia Dortmund. ➡️ Another Tampines Rovers player tested positive for the Covid19 after returning from the AFC Champions League campaign in Uzbekistan. ✅ ✅ The first two are, no doubt, some positives injected to the scene while, and hopefully, the infected Tampines players will get well soon 🙏. 🤒 From what I read, not only Tampines players are infected, six persons from Gamba Osaka and Frontale Kawasaki are infected as well. 🤒 Gamba reported having two players and two accompanied staff down with the virus, while Frontale non-playing staff were infected, according to Sohu, a China news portal. 🤦🏻‍♂️Although, it is regrettable to come across some nonsensical comments targeted at those infected Tampines players which clearly shown the lack of empathy towards anyone who is

Wonder if you understand why I am trying to say? Good Day to all, Posted this on IG Story days ago. It came after Tampines Rovers suffered a thrashing defeat in their ongoing AFC Champions League campaign that triggered a massive outcry on various social media sites. I decided not to post anything of that game as I felt no purpose in doing so when I did not watch the game and therefore not in the position to comment anything (I only saw the highlights later). Furthermore, if the post turned out to be another hotspot just to allow some to vent their frustrations like seen in some places, which might be escalated into something irrational, I think it would defeat the whole purpose of having this platform in the first place. Instead, I would rather share something that would be more beneficial in allowing others to appreciate and understand local football, such as historical stuff, etc. Last but not least, please kindly adhere to the "House Rules" when participating in any disc
