Lim is good at mid court but has a bad serve, so Goh has to serve and setup the play, it's kind of weird.
Lim is exceptional when it come to mid court and intercept but he lost as many points as he won it.

About the taunting, you guys are overeact. Taunting in your own turf is probably the only advantage that you have in your arsenal.
I say the umpire might been ask why he would let such thing happen, but honestly, nobody can deny the excitement that they gave to the spectators. We all did cheer upon that too.
I wish this pair could go further while they still can. The only thing concerns me is that will BAM favors them into big tourneys again ? They have prooved they wont against the same opponent that beat their ' big brother ' in the 1st round.
Lastly, I still think Goh V Shem should find a better partner. But not sure if such partner exist in BAM's pool.

Wild gesticulations, in-your-face aggression and taunting are NOT what make badminton lively. It's the pace, the power, the skills, the quick thinking, the deft touches, the twists and turns...
Cricket too is an out-and-out gentleman's sport.
But no one would term it 'dull' (even when the Australians aren't sledging).
In fact, any deviant behaviour is met with the comment "that's just not cricket".
I'm not advocating that everyone walk around in abject politeness and gallantry.
A bright fire in your eyes and visible aggression in your play are good enough for most occasions.
The Laws of Badminton 16.6.3 and 16.6.4
See Players Code of Conduct 4.1.1 and 4.17
IMHO, the umpire did a poor job of controlling the proceedings.
He should have intervened right away to warn against taunting.
Players have been warned for much less (shaking one's fist at the opponent, finger-wagging, etc). However, do note that shouts and gestures NOT directed at the opponent (or at anyone else) are totally within the rules.

If Goh partner with Tbh will it be better than Goh/ LKW? Anyway congrats to them for winning MO. Hopefully they can improve in the next tournament. LKW seriously need to improve his serves.

This victorious MAS pair deserves praise for beating first the 'notorious' DEN BoMo combo and went on to win the title to bring so much joy to the home crowd.
It would have been better if they did not get so worked up and taunt their opponents although it would appear from reports here that CHN started first. I thought GVS was the main culprit and I hope he will change for the better.
In any case, congrats to them and hope they will bring more joy to MAS fans.

At the Indian Badminton League, Goh V Shem was the quintessential gentleman all through the tournament.
Perhaps this unusual outburst at the Malaysia Open 2014 was provoked by something behind-the-scenes.
We need inside info from the BAM

Maybe it was the coach's strategy..

The MO final was the only professional match when I seen them act like that. Even in the SF against Rian/Angga where it was EXTREMELY CLOSE, they have never acted like that, which is why I'm very puzzled.
