The idea of sharing past occurrences of local football on this platform is to remind us what happened in the past and how those events should inspire us to do better.

It is never meant to be a channel to allow certain groups or ideologies to claim superiority over other groups or beliefs.

It has not been uncommon to see some lauded and immortalised the achievements of those many decades ago while belittling the efforts of those who did us proud in recent years.

These thoughts came to me after I read a book recently in which a former national player lamented efforts by his club mates and himself in a continental tournament meant little significance to many fans who still basking in the glory of a domestic Cup competition which Singapore long associated in the past (need not for me to elaborate which Cup competition).

This only tells us the parochial mindset that is etched in the mindset of some fans who still cannot let go of the past.

While we are not sure if the recent showing by Lion City Sailors in the AFC Champions League would inspire other clubs to do better in subsequent years to come.

Having us lifted the Asean titles in the recent past did not seem to spur us to aim for greater heights.

Instead, things went a downward spiral after a misguided initiative.

To reverse the tide to improve our local game, that parochial mindset must be one of the first things to go.
