I think LCW is to some extent watching with some anxiety about this MS/BAM spat to the extent that he came out without a second thought with full support for MS and with his 'own condition' thrown in too.
Now LD and the Chinese camp can surely see this emotional weakness of MS/LCW and will prepare to 'create' such sparks in important LD/LCW clashes in future.

As racquetor wisely said, why tamper with the elite squads coaching when they have only a year to Olympics. Just restructure the other squads who have no big targets.
By the way, does anyone notice Koo/Tan getting worse with each tournament like they have been losing confidence. If they don't get world class coach TKH to guide Koo/Tan, this MAS MD will not see glory. That's what meant by world class players requiring world class coach.
In any case, why can't BAM wait until Olympics 2012 to shake things up. It's only some months that will go very fast. In the meantime they can save some money by disbanding the committee that Dato N hides behind and use the savings to send the back-up players to more tournaments. That way they get to build up their tactics which is best learnt through competing.

, he would have lost early in SSMF. No top player can win in an anxious state.
But I agree with you LD will hope for LCW to be wrought with emotions. LD needs all the indirect help he can to take out LCW.
But I believe LCW actually will be more focused because either way, he will not have to deal with committee nonsense and can just concentrate on his badminton.

Li Mao slams BAM training policy
New Straits Times, Jan 14, 2008 | by K.M. Boopathy
FORMER national singles coach Li Mao has slammed the BA of Malaysia's (BAM) training attitude for hampering the nation from producing world class shuttlers.
Li Mao said the complicated system the BAM adopts doesn't allow a junior player with potential based at the Bukit Jalil Sports School (BJSS), or a back-up shuttler in the 2010-2012 Project squad, to be drafted into the national senior squad, and this was one reason why he decided to quit BAM last January.
The coach had made a request to BAM for some of the players with potential from BJSS and the 2010-2012 Project squad but was turned down.
"I've never come across such a ridiculous system in any country where your best players are not allowed to train with the national senior squad. This is the main reason why I left," said Li Mao at the Putra Stadium in Bukit Jalil yesterday.
"The idea is always to see the older players guiding the younger ones. This can only happen if the younger ones are allowed to spar with the seniors but it doesn't happen here.
"BJSS players are allowed to train with the Project Squad under Rashid (Sidek) but I wasn't given the liberty to choose any. How can I produce more top class players like (Lee) Chong Wei.
"In China, we can select any player with potential from anywhere. When I talk about Chong Wei, his titles come to my mind, but there is no other good memories.
"I could not say this when I was still coaching here as it would have invited problems but I can talk about it now."
Li Mao, who is now the singles coach with the South Korea squad, also said disunity among the singles and doubles players during his tenure in Malaysia also plagued the Malaysian game.
Li Mao said the Koreans are united in training and tournaments but this spirit is missing among Malaysian players.
"There is no unity. Singles players are on their own while the doubles players keep to themselves.
"They are very individualistic. The victories of a player are never acknowledged and instead there are a lot of unhappy faces."
BAM may be under the impression that this is Li Mao's way of getting back at them, but nonetheless, it should be looked into to see if the situation still exists with the national players.

If they are smart, they should be in the committee instead, no? LOL ... like I said, smart can be defined in any way... you being a smart Donald Trump doesn't mean you are smart enough in coaching footballers, no? Being a so-called smart leader but you still aren't aware of the old problems in your organization... insane, that kind of smart... but yeah, he kinda smart enough to make the TCC plays the main role in the saga...

Same old system in the form of the structure and set-up, but an additional TCC to implement things like coaches' and player's performance so that technical people can make decisions for the chairman who previously did not have a committee to make decisions. Coaching methods though fall under the TCC.
The problem lies more in the current set-up and organisation, not the committee (except coaching methods).
But the dispute is not just about the rigid and slow set-up, but also coaching methods.

The core of the problems are the policy makers and the system. When you have committee members which are mostly personals without experience in competitve badminton, this is as good as it gets(MAS current situation). It seems that unless BAM gets the help of divine power, we will continue seeing MAS baddy going through slump just like what's happening in the elite and backup squad right now(except KKK/TBH and LCW). Forget about hiring Tang XinFu or other famous coaches like Park JooBong, things will never change with this kind of rigid system in place(or should I said management who trying to be smart when they are really not?).
Good luck Malaysia.

Kudos to Undeadshot.
I brought up the same subject (LiMao) in post #74
http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...t=#post1599963 3 days back
but it was his delivery of the message that really hit the nail into the head.

I just hope my regular baddy buddy will be able to make it too. And I suppose the tough birdie will also be in attendance not only to watch LCW in action but also to enjoy the cosmopolitian scene.

So can I summarise it as such :
1) A TCC was set up to monitor coach and player performance on behalf of the Chairman and Exco after the Thomas Cup.
2) MS had some problem with the TCC as to coaching matters
3) MS (not other coaches) also had some problem with selection of players but it is an Exco matter,(Exco probably still bogged
down by bureaucracy,rules are rules etc.) ,not the TCC.
BAM is still the same except it now has a TCC to evaluate technical matters which previously was done by others.
If the above is true I think it would be impossible to change the bureaucracy part as history has been repeating itself.
Correct me if I'm wrong, its what I summarise from your postings.
