[quote=alfa-2;835319][shoutings, clappings, whistlings.........] as our beloved stirrer of BC entered this thread.........[/quote
If the beloved stirrer were 25 years old this year and Misbun was at his best in 1980, how young would the stirrer have been in 1980?(This is not a Maths test , just curiosity quiz)

I cant comment about his playing days, but coaching wise, he has the knack to bring up the game of back-up MS, dunno why his bro Rashid doesnt have the same touch.

Thanks for the report, It is always good to read about players from past generations in some better detail.
His game was well suited to the game styles played at the time. These days with the greater professionalism and fast more agressive play, I feel his play would not be so successful.
He was indeed a great player.

But inevitably, power players like Swie King, Han Jian, Luan Jin, Icuk and Yang Yang started to revolutionize how the game is played ....... and it continues today.

Actually Yang Yang started to revolutionize the game beside Lim Swie King...then came ZJH...

If my memory is correct, Mr Pemuda said last year he was 24 years old.Assuming he will be 25 this year, he would have been born somewhere 1983.When Misbun played his best in 1980, Mr Pemuda would have been -3 years old(yes, 3 years in his parents' planning).
When Misbun was on the decline,Mr Pemuda would ,at the most, be in the kindergarten.
The question is: How could he have arrived at his judgement that Misbun was not a great player?

Han Jian might not be as full fledged attacking minded as Swie King and Yang Yang, but he was still an attacking player. I find him to be more well rounded and complete than either Yang Yang or Zhao Jianhua. That 3 game battle between Swie King and Han Jian in 1982 Thomas Cup Final was pivotal, and CHN turned the tables ........

He was a great player except for the weird things that he did..like having his hair styled in the mohawk fashion and bleaching the middle part his hair. Caused quite a stir..felt he had to express himself?

BAM in the late-70s to early-80s did not have a very credible coaching setup. Thus early in his career, Misbun pretty much did his own analysis of games and planned his own training. Even pulled himself out of BAM training to prepare on his own for the World Cup in 1982, and managed a runnerup finish behind Liem Swie King.
I suppose Misbun does have inherent coaching pedigree, just like Taufik Hidayat has inherent badminton talent.
By the time Dr Elyas Omar, the BAM President, changed the training set up and roped in foreign coaches in the late-80s, it was a bit too late to benefit Misbun.

My great-great-great grandparents weren't even born in 17th century. So, why should I waste my time learning Isaac Newton's 3 Laws of Motion?
Based on that theory, because I didn't meet him in person and didn't see him doing all the calculations, debates with other scientists, and that 'apple incident,' then I could question his great contribution to the humanity?
I would even possibly come into a conclusion that, "Isaac Newton was an idiot."

Some basic common sense please
True, true I have never had the chance to see Misbun Sidek as a player. In the same vein, I have also never seen Pele, George Best, Franz Beckenbauer in action but are they legends in football. I will say yes without a doubt. Just in case you dont know or unaware, there is such a thing called research. To help you a little, there are history books. But if reading is not something for you, try this : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Misbun_Sidek
After looking at Misbun's achievements, to consider him as a great player is stretching things a little.
Based on your little theory, if anyone asked you whether Abraham Lincoln, Mahatma Gandhi or Martin Luther King Jr were great men are you gonna say you dont know because you have never seen them in action or were still in your little pram especially for Martin Luther King Jr's case??
You dont even need a math or curiosity test for this, just an application of elementary logic will suffice.
