    Yes, WMC requested to switch coach to Misbun. WMC official reason was she wanted to up her game even higher as her fitness not up to standard needed. She wanted to post greater challenge for 2008 OG. Later(I think the next year) BAM asked WTM to go to BJSS because the chief coach for BJSS left to go back China(forgot his name). That BJSS coach had been in Msia more than 10 years.
    Plus, by then Wong Choong Hann had decided to retire from BAM to go independent after 2008 OG.

    While at BJSS, WTM brought up the standard of the junior MS - Loh WS, Iskandar's batch.

    So, based on some of the posts above, WTM is a rather good coach.

    Do you really have to do this? We are in a badminton forum, not English language forum.

    Sure lah. Same as Yap Kim Hock, from coaching senior level, then go to BJSS, sup sup water for him.Then INA should be different experience, as I know, INA was 1st time WTM coach outside Msia. WTM was Li Mao's assistant coach when Li Mao was in Malaysia, that's why Li Mao asked WTM to go over INA.

    Our WS were sad when WTM left. Chi Sanrong gives the impression he couldnt fit in with the setup in BAM, including whatever politics they are playing. BJSS would suit Chi better

    It's just sad that someone had to resort to personal attacks simply because no one listens to him anymore...

    BAM to appoint supremo to oversee their new 12-year plan

    By RAJES PAUL

    KUALA LUMPUR: One head is better.

    This is the conclusion reached by the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) when the exco, headed by Datuk Nadzmi Mohd Salleh, created an important post – a project manager – to oversee their new 12-year plan for the future.

    And the good news is that the project manager, aka supremo, will be given the full authority to run the programmes.

    The BAM have not decided on the candidate for the job but it will not be a foreigner thus hiring South Korean Park Joo-bong is out of the question. Those in the running are Kwan Yoke Meng and Wong Ah Jit and they may even look for others to take up the job.
    The project manager will oversee the country’s three new squads – elite and 2016, 2020 and 2024 – spanning three Olympic cycles.
    The 2020 squad will comprise the Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS) players while the 2024 squad will consist of players from 9-14 years old from the states.
    The BAM have appointed Rashid Sidek and Tan Kim Her as the singles and doubles chief coaches for the elite and 2016 squads and both will be answerable to the project manager.
    The project manager will also be given the task to appoint the chief coaches for the 2020 and 2024 squads.
    BAM president Nadzmi said that the role of the project manager would be clearly defined.
    “We need a really good manager – one who can organise and strategise.
    “He must have strong managerial skills and the ability to work well with others. He also needs the technical expertise,” said Nadzmi.
    “There are three basic elements. The project manager will be given clear responsibilities of his job scope so that he will not have to change the goal posts all the time. And he will be given the authority to fulfil his responsibilities. He, however, will have to be accountable for all his actions.
    “The way he manages should ensure that all the squads will be inter-related and linked. He will have to ensure that all analyses and coaching programmes will be documented so that it could be passed on.
    “We did not have competent people to fulfil those responsibilities in the past.
    “We did not have a perfect fit but with the appointment of a project manager, we hope our programme will be executed well.”
    Malaysia had a similar set-up before when Morten Frost Hansen was appointed the national coaching director and Yap Kim Hock the chief coach but both did not have full say in running the programmes.
    Yesterday, Nadzmi, however, reiterated that coaches had always been given the power to decide in BAM.
    When pointed out that there had been several decisions on players which was made by the management and not the coaches, the exco admitted that it was a mistake and promised to go through the right processes this time around.

    "And the good news is that the project manager, aka supremo, will be given the full authority to run the programmes."

    But both the singles and doubles head coach have been appointed. What if those two are not who the Project Manager wants? And he has to take the rap if these two are incompetent.

    Another 1 more

    Another 1 more on this side, guess who is still standing alone on his side?

    Zolkpes stated that if BAM is interested in hiring South Korean Park Joo Bong, NSC is open to discussions with the association.

    "I was BAM secretary when Joo Bong was here and he is quite efficient. However, he hardly had any authority and BAM had more often supported the players than him. This must change and the chief coach or coaching director must call the shots."

    Probably BAM wants one more year to try out the pairing of KKK and TBH. They reckon Cai Yun will retire. Jung Jae Sung will stop playing. So who will be the barriers to the WC doubles crown then? ;)

    Your far too smart to be outwitted aren't you?:D:D I thought about this too. The answer that always come back to me is, 'smoke screen, smoke screen, put them on like sunscreen, so you can do whatever you want in the light of day and never be seen'.:cool:
