Glad to read in ST that the newish coach (who was a tua kee in the brutal East German sporting system) is culling the older Lions. As regular readers will know, I’ve long wondered why the likes of Bennett (now that’s a FT where the “T” stands for “Talent”) were doing in the team. Granted he’s not a gd example of oldie as defenders can go on and on, unlike strikers. But still …
Given the performance of LionsXII, it made even more sense to cull the older Lions to make way for younger, leaner and hungrier
BTW, while it’s sad that Fandi keeps getting humiliated (read today’s ST), I hope it puts to rest the assertion among those brainless fans, who hating the PAP more than they love local footie, that he’s the answer to all our footie under-performance. He was boss of this region’s Shitty*, yet couldn’t secure a trophy or even get the team to qualify for the Asian championships.
But maybe it’s divine retribution for Fandi for thinking of suing the SDP when the party, like the local media, tried to exploit his fame http://atans1.wordpress.com/2013/04/07/sdp-lost-the-plot-on-fandi-ahmad-article/ and http://atans1.wordpress.com/2013/04/17/people-who-deserve-tax-payers-help-those-who-dont/.
Maybe the gods decided to punish Fandi because in the SDP’s case, it was for a “right” cause, unlike the papers who only want to increase sales while giving him no peanuts.
*Manchester City ‘s EPL’s nickname. The team like Johor throws money at any problem. At least in City’s case it worked for one season. BTW, ever tot of the MU, City rivarly as an extension of the historical row between the Jews and the Arabs, or between the frugal and the big spenders? BTW both races are shrewd traders.
