So long it's not called "pussy cat"

I must be probably one of the rare few in Singapore to nickname the Singapore National Under-23 squad as "THE CUBS", whereas most would call them "YOUNG LIONS".

For a good reason, I thought "CUBS" should be the appropriate one in this context, even though some opined those national teams in the teenage group should be called that.

Simply because "YOUNG LIONS" is a team playing in the Singapore Premier League (SPL) and not a team representing the Republic in international tournaments.

To nickname the Singapore National Under-23 as "YOUNG LIONS" would only give a wrong interpretation that the SPL team of the same name is THE ONE representing Singapore in overseas competitions when it is not (even though the bulk of the CUBS were selected from the YOUNG LIONS on many occasions).

After all, the function of "YOUNG LIONS" is for developmental purposes in a professional setting.

While as far as I know, there isn't any official decree whatsoever to determine the National Under-23 squad as "CUBS" or "YOUNG LIONS".

But the obstinacy in me thinks "CUBS" is the appropriate nickname for the Singapore National Under-23 squad.
