    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level and beat you with experience

    Vitriolic insults will be returned with 10 times the vitriol.

    yea mate, strange appointment maybe
    however slating him off even before he starts work is a whole different story.
    that guy has been involved in the sport for more than 40 years.
    surely he must know something about it to last that long...

    it is even more strange when someone who doesnt follow sinkie football anymore comes out and slate the coach off and then proudly claimed he isnt bothered about sinkie football.
    you guys sure have a lot of fairweather fans in sinkieland, no wonder the support is at its all time low.

    I coin this as the Julia Nickson/Rex Goh/Vanessa Mae syndrome.
    Shit, I actually know who these people are.
    Julia starred in Rambo movie.
    Rex was a member of Air Supply.
    Vanessa is a violinist cum pop star.

    It bothers me because it is MY national team. And I don't like my national football team losing to the likes of Philippines again. Appointing an unsuitable manager (with dubious employment history) will increase the chances of that happening. I can't explain things more clearly than that....

    So were you very proud when Tiffany, Stephanie and Dorothy(?) became the flag bearer at the Olympics and won medals for singapore?

    Former England footballer Terry Butcher and current manager of scottish club Inverness CT was born in S'pore.
    10 years younger than Stange too.
    They should have appointed him and claimed he is a homegrown talent.

    mate, make up your mind what it is that you want..
    u can't just say you are bothered about them losing to a pino team and then claim that they dont even bothered to watch them..

    dubious employement history u claimed?
    like i said, look at his on-field employment record.
    he has been involved in the sport for more than 40 years.
    surely he knows a thing or 2 about football.

    and for the third time, tell me how does slating him off even before he starts is gonna help?

    Why not? Being a supporter and being disappointed by your team are not mutually exclusive events. Any Liverpool fan since the 80s knows what I'm talking about.

    surely he knows a thing or 2 about football.

    and for the third time, tell me how does slating him off even before he starts is gonna help?

    Fact 1: He was a Cold War informant who was paid by the secret police to report on his own players
    Fact 2: He was willing to coach the national team under the Sadam's Ba'ath party regime when all guns were pointing towards Iraq.

    These 2 achievements reek of wild risk taking and poor judgement of character.

    I'm fine with 40 years of coaching experience. But how many accolades has he gathered? "Qualification into the second round" deemed an achievement? Also note the number of clubs he's been with since East Germany -- he averages 2 years per stint.

    I'm not here to 'help' anyone. I am not a blind supporter who goes "rah rah" when a single match has yet been won. And looking at this guy's credentials, I'm pessimistic about his chances of ever reversing the decline of our football scene.

    There's one very good player in the current S'pore set up, a Malay guy called Hariss Harun.
    Very composed on the ball, good energy in midfield, very aware of what's going on, i.e. very intelligent player.
    He speaks very well too, saw him being interviewed a couple of times on tv, imo sure to be a future S'pore team captain.

    He's so good that Shebby Singh, global advisor of Blackburn Rovers, wanted to bring him over to England for a stint with the club.
    Ok, this may not be a plus for him for some of you football critics, but he's still a really good player.

    Good point.. My guess is maybe we Chinese don't really want a career in football.. Back then in the 90s during my school days, I was selected to go for trials at Farrer Park field for the then Milo football Academy.. I diligently went for training every weekend for 3 straight months.. As a boy all of us dreamt of playing for S'pore in the Malaysia Cup and stepping foot on the famous Kallang Stadium pitch..

    In our group there were quite a number of Chinese boys from other schools too.. 4 Chinese boys in my cohort were selected for the Spore Lions City Squad for that year's tournament..

    As for me, one Mat friend intro me to Fire Disco tea dance on a Saturday afternoon and I lost interest after that in going for my football training.. The rest as they say is History..

    Fandi tulan with FAS for many reasons.. So he's out of their selection.. Only hope is with Sundram.. But they just want Sundram to concentrate on the Malaysia Cup squad..
