But talking about badminton, there is no doubt that it is going all the way downhill. We can only hope that the revival won't take 10 to 20 years or even more! I recently just learnt that Thailand used to be quite a strong badminton nation in the ... 70s? (correct if I am wrong) but it took them almost 30 years before they started making a huge impact.

Why players shine?
Why players shine?
IMHO, players shine because their coaches/associations make sure that they enjoy their sports (in training and at tournaments).
As soon as players feel that their effort (to perform well) is not appreciated by their fans/coaches/associations, they will find themselves having extra obstacles standing in their way to shine.

Just to remind you of an example :
Wang Yi Han performed badly and was left out of the Uber Cup.
LYB threatened to drop her if she did not WIN the 2010 Danish and French Open.
Can you say Wang Yi Han enjoyed the pressure?
I think it all boils down to culture and the mental strength aspect.I dont blame Malaysians,
we are probably like many Westerners unable to cope with the cruelty and harsh treatment
that counterparts in East Asia have to endure.Maybe the Performance Evaluator did not make enough
adjustments to suit the local culture and mentality and just went by the book.Here we forgive and forget easily
and that may be the root of peace and harmony(although it has its drawbacks).Nevertheless the golden rule
is less emphasis on rules akin to "one size fits all" and to make adjustments for locality, unless it is a matter of
life and death.

The selection of players to form a team is easier to make

or be dropped from the China team, not just the Uber Cup. And she delivered.
The key element is the stress and pressure she was able to endure as an individual.

that kind of stress and pressure? lol
try replace them with swallowing stones for every one of them everyday.
in a year if the in's and out's leaves a balance of more stones in your tummy
than you can take, that's called a breaking point
this is exactly what happened to dear misbun
stress and pressure stays with us no matter what
and the best we can do is to reduce them before the new ones come
wang's example is only one stone in this case whereas misbun's is a long time.
i am not trying to say bam is in the wrong nor can i say for misbun.
simply because we do not know the reasons and causes in the first place
why i am fruatrated and feeling sorry is that,
knowing misbun personally i just can't accept this is happening
again simply because i want badminton in malaysia to florish like yesteryears
many of us may have the same vision accept a few trolls
but we may have different thinking towards it

That is the kind of pressure many people are subject to in the private sector.
Especially in very competitive societies.Many people drop out to become their own bosses, the underlying principle
is that the world does not owe you a living, comply or ship out. Even in local politics nowadays people are not retained when they leave.
Like I said it may not work in the Malaysian context .
In many societies they go by the book, there is no compromise if one is caught running the red-light,
inconsiderate parking,jay-walking, littering, etc. etc.
Even the government is trying to implement KPIs.
Sometimes people who make the rules have to stand by them in order to set a good example. It is up to you to decide
whether or not it is right or even used in the right context.

"again simply because i want badminton in malaysia to florish like yesteryears"
Badminton is not doing too well now with LCW and KKK/TBH.
It is just that (as many people notice) too many resources and attention has been focussed on the stars
leaving a team with no depth for team events.This is specially relevant now in our economic conditions with cut-backs.
The difference with the past in terms of success is that we have lost the edge in team events,
which is only a small part of the honours.There is ample progress in the ladies and mixed doubles and the mixed team event.
I think many people tend to judge success too much on the Thomas Cup,especially ex-Thomas Cuppers.
Maybe expectations need to be reviewed.
In this era Msia is king of the Super Series, not team events, even China cannot dominate both.

To be at the very top in badminton it has to be survival of the fittest. Malaysia's 'Ti Da Pak' attitude has been a Malaysian culture since early years and is the root cause of falling at the last hurdle.
It is about time that coaches are being evaluated for their performance every 3 months against an set objective or objectives. For example if Misbun is given charge of say 5 elite singles players then he must perform and show some improved performance of all his charges, not just one. He cannot live under the shield of just one good performing player. If he is instrumental in producing excellence from LCW he should be able to do the same for the others. Coaches must produce results and to do this they must be evaluated periodically on their performance. If they cannot or will not accept this then they obviously cannot take pressure. Then it is best to let them go.

winning team event mainly shows that your country is strong overall
would not this be the best way to measure your success in badminton?
hey, we have very good singles and doubles players (notice the 's')
or you prefer,
we only have lcw, kkk and tbh

a little arithmatics will tell you in no time malaysia will runs out of coaches and players

and there are differences between humans and automobile

The criteria should be improvement and not necessarily winning, because any improvement over time will culminate in significant improvement. The failure in the form of declining performance, not mentioning winning any titles, of the backup elite players is a damming indictment against the coaches.

The most insecure job and also the shortest career life in the sporting world is the English Premier League. No wonder it also breeds the best in soccer. Just imagine Misbun being in charge of Liverpool! He won't survive 3 months.
Pressure, what pressure, because pressure is the adrenaline that drives success. How can one be a good coach without pressure?
