AFF Cup : Harimau Juara !!!!!

JAKARTA: Malaysia has won the AFF-Suzuki Cup on a 4-2 aggregate. Indonesia won the second leg of the final 2-1 in Jakarta on Wednesday night while Malaysia had won the first leg 3-0 in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday.
The scorers for Indonesia were Mohammad Ridwan (87th minute) and Mohammad Nasuha (71st). Safee Sali had scored in the 53rd minute to put Malaysia 1-0 in the lead.
It was a significant success for Malaysia as the last time the senior national team became champions in a regional competition was at the 1989 SEA Games in Kuala Lumpur.

It was also the first time in the AFF Championships since 1996 that Malaysia has become champions.
To make it a grand night for Malaysia, Safee won the Golden Boot award with five goals to his name. The striker was on target twice in the first leg.
Malaysia started with the same line-up that was fielded in the first leg, except for midfielder Mohd Amirulhadi Zainal and right-back Mahali Jasuli, who were suspended. The duo were replaced by Mohd Ashaari Shamsuddin and Mohd Sabree Abu respectively.
The Indonesians were without their inspirational flanker Okto Maniani, who was also out on suspension while striker Yongky Ari Bowo was out with an injury. Their replacements were Arif Suyono and Irfan Bachdim respectively.

As expected, Indonesia came charging from the starting whistle but the Malaysian defence led by Mohd Muslim Ahmad and Mohd Fadhli Shas did well to keep a tight leash on Indonesian dangermen Christian Gonzales and Irfan Bachdim.
But a lapse of concentration inside the box resulted in Indonesia winning a penalty in the 15th minute, when Mohd Sabree handled the ball.
However, much to the disappointment of the Indonesian fans, skipper Firman Utina’s tame kick was saved by Malaysian goalkeeper Khairul Fahmi Che Mat.

The Indonesians, who were desperate for an early goal, kept on pressing for the opening goal but Khairul Fahmi proved to be a stumbling block, denying at least five attempts at goal before the half-time break.
Malaysia took the lead against the run of play in the 53rd minute, when Ashaari sent a long through ball for Safee to chase, and the Selangor hitman scored a clinical goal.
Despite being a goal down, Indonesia never gave up and their persistence paid off as defender Mohammad Nasuha pounced on a loose ball from goalkeeper Khairul’s save to hit the roof of the net in the 71st minute.

Then with the clock ticking away, Muhammad Ridwan scored from a goal-mouth melee in the 87th minute but this was not enough to deny Malaysia the AFF-Suzuki Cup.

RPK: Play It Again SAM

The MCLM was an attempt to continue the struggle for reforms outside the political party platform and this was something we started six years ago (in 2004) and before there was even an opposition coalition called Pakatan Rakyat (which was formed four years later in 2008).

Raja Petra Kamarudin
The Star, Bernama, Utusan Malaysia and many Umno websites are going to town with the ‘news’ that I have turned my back on the opposition and am now whacking the opposition by saying that it is not fit to rule the country.

AFF Tourney 2010 Final: The Young Harimau's journey continues

dari ChangkatNingkeBTP

This is the first time for the past 8 years I wrote seriously about the Malaysian Football Team. The last time was a massive criticism to the FAM via their website.

Why? The past. The dreadful performance .... the massive losses to China (0-5), Uzbeks (1-5) as the host of Asian Cup. Losses to the minnows such as Laos, Phillipines (congrats to both team in this tourney!!!) and Palestine. I still remember when Phillipines won 1-0 in the SEA Games 10 years ago. To make it even worst, the Filipinos was then coached by a Malaysian. Still in the memory of the 0-6 losses to Indonesia also in the Brunei's SEA Games. The list of shames were long.

Storm clouds may roll into Tenang skies

dari ChangkatNingkeBTP

By FMT Staff
KUALA LUMPUR: The storm at the recently concluded parliamentary session, which saw the suspension of opposition Members of Parliament – including Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim – is likely to continue but this time at a different venue.
Political parties, from both sides of the fence, are expected to use the Tenang by-election to rattle the sleepy hollow with arguments for and against the suspension.
The Election Commission will meet today to fix the date for the country's 14th by-election since the 2008 general election. The by-election is held following the death of Barisan Nasional-Umno assemblyman Sulaiman Taha. The constituency is known to be a BN stronghold although the ruling coalition conquered the state constituency in Johor with a reduced majority in 2008 compared to the 2004 general election.

History textbooks biased, say writers

dari ChangkatNingkeBTP

by Zakiah Koya, The Sun History textbooks are biased and littered with errors, claim two authors and academicians. Dr Ranjit Singh Malhi and Ng How Kuen, who writes history textbooks for Chinese schools, say their experience with officialdom does not augur well for the teaching of history in our classrooms.
Ranjit, author of secondary school history textbooks since 1990, and adviser to the Ministry of Education (MOE) on history textbooks, said such material were littered with factual errors and distortions. He said that when he pointed out the errors and distortions, a ministry official labelled him “anti-national”.

Selangor pusat pertarungan PRU 13

dari ChangkatNingkeBTP
Sekiranya ada satu perkara terbesar yang mampu memberi kesan dramatik kepada Pakatan Rakyat menjelang Pilihan Raya Umum ke-13 yang dijangka ramai pada suku pertama tahun depan, isu itu ialah negeri Selangor.
Kaitan beberapa peristiwa kebelakangan ini menunjukkan hal ini, seperti demonstrasi kumpulan Umno dan penyokongnya di Istana Kayangan, di Shah Alam, Selangor Jumaat lalu, dakwaan terhadap bekas Menteri Besar Selangor Datuk Seri Dr Khir Toyo dan pelbagai isu dimainkan untuk memburukkan kerajaan Pakatan di Selangor.
