[Telegram Chat] - The Syndrome Of Comparing

The late Mr. Lee Kuan Yew (as credited)

Good day to all,

I saw these words from the late Mr. Lee Kuan Yew from the source which I credited on the bottom of the shared picture.

Perhaps, it may be the case for other aspects of Singaporeans but not necessarily when we come to talk about local football.

I think we all know too well that there are some individuals around who always like to compare the past with the present and some to the extent of belittling the efforts of the present generation while gratifying the greatness of those in the past.

In fact, this syndrome of comparing is nothing new and certainly did not occur only in recent years which I believe since the first day a football was kicked on the shores of Singapore, it already started.

Just check out this blog post which I did in 2019 - "We Will Thank Raddy 20 Years Later, Instead Of Now ..." which there are few examples to show how deeply the syndrome of comparing is entrenched in local football.

While it is good to be inspired by the past to improve ourselves but never a good thing to dwell in past to belittle the efforts of those after them.

That is the short update of the day.

Till then, stay safe and healthy and don't gather in numbers ❌

Thank you for your support.
