off topic but oh well...
That's why I have been saying time and time again-No country could possibly compete with China in terms of how much they invest in their sport(or at least how much they spend in CBA). I don't think even the whole European Badminton community combined could possibly afford what's China is paying at the moment(I am not event counting the money they spend on talent scouts).
CBA always manage to fund their players to compete oversea when necessary(juniors and seniors) and they have a team of comprising of chefs, caretakers(doing all the cores), medical teams, sport therapists, lots of coaches(you can clearly seen the overwhelming no of coaches accompanied the players compared to other nations) and videos engineers. Sure the Chinese players are very good but they are sort of expected to perform considered they have the best facility in the world(albeit having lower paid than others as they have everything else covered by the government). What I don't understand is, why do others keep wanting to compare what the Chinese players have achieved to the players from other nation(especially LCW)? Like what pjswift said, what LCW was able to achieve was considered to be remarkable considered BAM is not offering as much as CBA.
Sure, everyone here knows that LD is the greatest here, but you don't have to blow LD's achievements out of proportion(like saying he can determine the match outcome based on his motivation? Give me a break,that man is a human) and belittle LCW at the same time to show how great LD is, alright? Could the non-LCW fans at least give LCW a bit of credit when it is due? Thank you.

- LD has to get a special coach as in Tang Xianhu just to counter LCW?..If i recall, Tang Xianhu joined CHN team in the late 90s/early 2000. No, he wasn't hired just to coach LD (as he coached Xia Xuanze before). Further, he's been coaching LD way before LCW made his mark and achievements. Nothing to do with LCW. Also, i believe Tang Xianhu is there to guide LD not only when he faces LCW, but also the other top MS players (e.g. Gade, Taufik).
- Yes, not much doubt abt CHN having better support system for LD (besides the coaching & training system they also have the players/sparring partners). And it doesn't only apply for the MS but for all the events.
- Sure, LCW has bounced back after poor outings before. But we're focusing on his matches vs. LD when it mattered most, those are the ones which reflect LCW's & LD's frame of mind. The only possible time, if i recall, where LCW had a success over LD in a major tourney was probably their match in the 2008 Thomas Cup KO Rd tie & the 2007 Sudirman Cup group play (even then CHN still won).

its not a big deal whether lcw beat ld 3x or more
its a big deal when ld fans starts using the words generous...
and one should know why such comment should not be in bc
yes, tang xianhu has been coaching lin dan for a long time with breaks in between
one of our bc members from china did mentioned txf went back to fujian to coach his son prior to tc10
while others said he is old and can take only 1 student
lin dan must be the lucky one or there is something behind

I hope to see LCW on the top podium. And not 2nd.

It also depends on LD's motivation...
He wasn't really motivated at Ae and So, he was at TCup...
We know what happened then...

thom, when you said lin dan's motivation...
what actually do you mean by that?
07-04-2010, 03:29 PM #147
Looks like the post I posted in #137 doesn't really do anything. I think I should give up trying to reason with LD's fans. Maybe, it's better we just sitback and let them post whatever they want. This way, we can at least save ourselves a bit of time.

..LD's success has more to do with him and his preparation than the presence of TXH coaching him..
Should LD fail to win the WC this yr with Tang Xinhu present & coaching him, then what comment would all the MAS Boleh crowd in here make?..

the thing has a lot to do with lin dan success in winning
unless one can't see what's happening during the game
its just like a remote control car
07-05-2010, 12:40 AM #150
LCW would find it very difficult to defeat LD and TXH combined
07-05-2010, 02:13 AM #151
Haiya... people still think LD will be unbeatable as long as he is motivated.

when anyone mentioned lin dan is/was motivated
i like to know what makes them think lin dan is/was motivated
and how the hell they know how lin dan is/was motivated
what are the sign, what are the source of this motivation?
p/s i certainly don't expect anything from cooler (think he will be back soon)
certainly not 'when the stars are all lined up....'
