More signatures

More signatures were gathered during the charity match in aid for Charmaine Lim's cancer treatment. I finally got hold of former Geylang United and ex-Balestier Khalsa coach Jang Jung after missed him on several occasions. Rudy Khairon was walking behind me after Jang Jung signed the poster, and I asked, "Hang on, let see if you were inside the poster?", "Yeah, I think so... " said the former national midfielder. But the agony was the missing out of Hasnim Haron who is nippy as ever as in his playing days when he left the ground early after the match...


Was late for the game anyway but it was a good turn-out for this charity match organized by former Singapore international Rafi Ali, as thousands of fans turned out at the Tampines Stadium to catch stars of the yesteryears to parade their skills in aid for the four-year old cancer patient Charmaine Lim.

Short scribe on Home U's misadventure in Hong Kong (edited)

Got a call from my friend, Bryan Lim who saw the match where Home United were trounced 4-0 by Hong Kong powerhouses - South China AA in the AFC Cup knock-out stage. Here are some of the extracts from his posting filed from Hong Kong... "I just came back from the game played @ the HK Stadium.A passionate & capacity crowd of about 8K watched the humiliating defeat. Here's the starting lineup (3-5-2): Lionel-Rosman,Mani & Hiek-Dickson,Shadan,Syed Fadhill & Perez-Lodovick & Azhar. Sivaji(as usual left an orthodox leftback,Jumaat on the bench), keeping faith with the oft crticized rotation system. The pitch was slippery after showers in the afternoon and an hour before the game. Weather was humid." "The SC supporters sitting in front of me asked if I was from Singapore. We had a chat & they admitted that HU was a good team but lacked a finisher. Frankly,HU's porous defence made 2 fatal errors which made SC looked gd. they were very impressed wi

Come Clear and Balance it!!

Two news broke out today which had been circulated around the fraternity lately. (Picture from "Today") "Where are you, Bryan?" Young Australian striker Bryan Soane had left Balestier Khalsa over contractural dispute, while management reshuffling took place in Sengkang Punggol saw coach Jorg Steinnebrunner and chairman Ben Lim walked out of the club. Based on both stories by TODAY, the details seems to be one-sided as public were only given one half of the stories, while scratching their scalp why the other half, being the concerned parties, were not being quoted or giving their side of the stories. (Picture from "Today") "Where are you, Jorg?" I was told efforts were made to get into contact with the gentlemen but with not much success. Apparently, the gentlemen felt it's not time to spill the beans or they just simply don't want to dwell on it? Whatever it may be, I felt the fans have every right to know the inside out of both st

Kung-Fu Friendly as Cubs beat the Indonesian U23...

(P.S:Things were made so easy now since the opening of the Pioneer MRT station, located within strolling distance of the Jurong West Stadium.) The Cubs redeemed themselves after that Malaysian thrashing by beating the Indonesian U23 at the Jurong West Stadium, although they clearly knew it very much that much work needed to be done if they want to be seen as a favourite of the year-end SEA Games. 2-0 was the scoreline as the Cubs finished off the Indonesian guests with two well-taken goals in each half but not without any incident that made the match a mockery of that as a friendly with four players (two from Singapore, one on-field and one bench player of the visiting side) being sent off by referee Abas Daud.
