well, draw is out.
Malaysia is drawn against Korea.
if they loses that, they have to play Indonesia in QF.
if they loses that, they will get thrown into 5-8th round robin. the winner of the round robin will get the 5th qualifying spot to go to Wuhan.
potential contender in the round robin will be:
Chinese Taipei or Japan
Malaysia or Indonesia
to be honest, i think Malaysia got a decent draw.

While other teams is making strategy on how to win the cup, MAS is struggling on how to qualify to the final round.

I might sound crazy. I love my players, i know they trained hard and I love Malaysia.
But personally i would like Malaysia to Fail in the Qualifying for once.
I don't want them to just get by the passing mark. I want them to go back to the drawing board when they fail.

It's just too late
I also think it's too late for Malaysia to even try to make it into this year's (2012) Thomas Cup Finals.
It's better to work on mission for future TC's. This year's TC preparation is just too late.

When Malaysia in on par with Taiwan, Hong Kong or Thailand.. there is nothing to talk about. Im disgusted. No offense to the other countries. Im just disappointed with Malaysia status now.

http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...-are-out/page2 if MAS cannot qualify, they are not on par with these countries. They are rank lower. Sad case.

Read the News today... BAM will not kick a fuss if Malaysia did not qualify for the Thomas Cup Finals.
Olympic Gold is still Malaysia's priority.
Of course you can say that when you know the team have a chance of not qualifying. I can also say that
its no big deal for me not able to play for Malaysia. It is such a lame respond.
Bottom line is what are we going to do about it?
I think it will be a one man show. Might as well put everyone on Holiday since we know it very clear that only Chong Wei stands a chance to win the Gold. Doubles... maybe if the KKK/TBH can put up some
My point is they don't have back up plans to strengthen the TEAM overall. Comeon... we are no longer a
Badminton Powerhouse Anymore. If something happen to Chong Wei.. what do we have left?
One thing for sure.. our ladies did better. But there is still room for improvement. A Big ROOM that is.

Ok, honestly speaking, I do no believe for a moment that we can win the Thomas Cup.
And yes, with the current state of things, qualifying will be difficult. But we shouldn't just throw in the towel like that. Only BAM does that.
I really hope the players get angry with BAM comments about it being no big deal if they don't qualify, and shove it down BAM's throat, defy the expectation and play like Harimaus to qualify.
Historically, Thomas Cup has united our nation in a way that nothing else can. If we can't even qualify for the finals, then what hope is there left for Malaysian badminton?
Maybe Ants in post #54 does have a point. Maybe if they do fail to qualify, that will actually stimulate some real changes in BAM and Ministry of Sports/National Sports Council.
It still doesn't hide the fact that it will be a sad, sad day for the country if we really do fail to qualify.

If Thomas Cup is not that important to BAM then which tournament does it care about? Ask if they care about All England, ABC, Sudirman Cup, I guess none of these matters anymore.
I am sure it would be a crisis if Italy were to miss World Cup qualifying or LA Lakers were to miss NBA playoff.
I hope BAM sees this as a national crisis, declare a state of emergency, and do something to fix it.

yes i think badminton .. more than football has consistently united malaysians as one.. witness.. malaysians of all races boooed and jeered at kkk and tbh in all of their recent games.. and malaysians of all races threw stuff and insults..at fairuzizuan and zakry not too long ago...

BAM should accept the responsibility of the failure
When Badminton is doing well for Malaysia, BAM want the credit.
When not doing well, BAM should accept the responsibility of the failure.

no worry lah
no big deal if we cant qualify or lost in 0g 2012
as long as they earn enough money,its ok for them
ng chin chai hold 3 posts in bam,u believe he only earn one salary?
he earn 3!
after tc 2012,i think they will wanted to hire another very high performance director
end up no suitable people,then ng chin chai will earn 4 salary!
