To tell you the truth Msia players from 1970 up to 1988 are nothing to shout about.It was a rock bottom period where
the government did not provide much support and the only people noteworthy at that time were the Sidek family
thru the personal efforts of their parents.The Msia Open was revived only in 1983.
I cant remember any Msia player of that period (pre-Misbun) who won any International tournaments, only local ones.
Only that they performed beyond expectations in the 1976 and 1979 Thomas Cup.
James played singles and doubles in those Thomas Cup campaigns.
Other than that as everyone knows he grew up in the Selangor Badminton Association Hall in Kampung Attap
where his family were the caretakers.
It was only after 1988 when Msia badminton opened up to foreign influence and Msia reached the Thomas Cup Final after a long lapse.
It has gone "local" in recent years.

Misbun ready to talk
By RAJES PAUL
PETALING JAYA: There may be a happy end to the Misbun Sidek controversy after all.
After keeping mum for some time, Misbun has finally aired his grievances that led to his decision to quit as a national badminton coach to Youth and Sports Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek in a heart-to-heart talk on Wednesday.
I am out: Misbun Sidek handed in his resignation on Dec 31.
And Shabery will now initiate a tripartite meeting among Misbun, the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) and himself to resolve matters.
Misbun tendered a resignation letter to the BAM on Dec 31. And his decision to leave the national team brought out strong reactions from world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei, who said that he would follow suit if the BAM were unable to persuade his coach to change his mind.
The “healing session” between Misbun and BAM is expected to take place in a day or two after Shabery returns from an official visit to Kuching.
Shabery is playing the role as the mediator after Misbun refused to meet BAM president Datuk Seri Nadzmi Mohd Salleh to reveal why he decided to quit.
The minister had met Nadzmi and other BAM officials at lunch on Wednesday. And together with the National Sports Council’s (NSC) director of sports management, Abdul Jalil Abdullah, they met Misbun over dinner.
Shabery said that Misbun had some problems with the BAM that could be ironed out.
“I gathered from the talk with Misbun that there were some grievances and differences in opinion between him and the BAM,” he said.
“He (Misbun) raised some valid points that needed to be ironed out. It has nothing to do with some of the speculations that have emerged. It is about how one handles the training and its approaches.
“I will, however, not divulge the details of what was spoken in privacy. The best way is for me to bring both parties for a discussion. Let us all be open about it.”
Shabery said that both Misbun and Nadzmi had agreed to have the meeting.
“I have spoken to Nadzmi and he is open to have a discussion with Misbun and vice versa. Both sides are sincere and I think, this is a positive sign,” he said.

Misbun: I need a break
By K.M. Boopathy and Desmond Davidson
MISBUN Sidek has stated that his patriotism should not be questioned just because he resigned as the national singles coach last week.
Misbun said that badminton has been his life and he wants to take a temporary break and will return when he overcomes his anger and disappointment.
"I'm upset and disappointed and I want to take a break. It's not a question of patriotism as I have been involved in badminton all my life," said Misbun.
"What happened internally (in the coaching and training committee meeting) should remain internal and I'm not going to reveal anything.
"I had dinner with Sports Minister (Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek) yesterday (Wednesday) but it was just an informal meeting and nothing more than that."
Misbun also made it clear his decision was not influenced by anyone and there is also no attempt to lure Lee Chong Wei or any other shuttler out of the national team.
An emotional Misbun, who turns 51 next month, declined from making further comments as he felt the time was not right.
Meanwhile, Ahmad Shabery said he will be having a joint meeting with Misbun and BA of Malaysia (BAM) president Datuk Seri Nadzmi Salleh to settle the issue after his two-day visit to Sarawak.
Ahmad Shabery was optimistic the differences between Misbun and BAM would be sorted out before the Malaysia Open on Jan 18-24.
"With the Malaysia Open beginning soon, I am sure that the situation will improve. Time will assist us to clear the air. I feel that it is not good that the problem between Misbun and BAM went public and that Misbun had to tender his resignation," said Ahmad Shabery.
"There should have been dialogues and discussions rather than going public. There will only be the three of us in the meeting."
Speculation is rife that one of the reasons behind Misbun's resignation was the decision by BAM to let Hendrawan coach Misbun's son Misbun Ramdan.

"Kami (bersama Menteri) hanya berbual kosong semalam. Saya menjelaskan kepada beliau sebab mengapa saya mahu meletakkan jawatan, itu saja.
We (together with the Sports Minister) only had a chat yesterday. I explained to him why I wanted to resign, that's all
"Saya tetap berpegang kepada prinsip bahawa apa yang dibincangkan atau berlaku dalam bilik mesyuarat, sepatutnya kekal di situ dan tidak perlu dibawa keluar. Begitupun saya mengakui, rasa kecewa terhadap persatuan adalah sebab saya mahu berundur.
"Apa pun, ketika ini saya tidak mahu fikir dan berkata apa-apa, kerana saya hanya mahu berehat seketika. Saya harap semua pihak menghormati dan memahaminya,'' ujar Misbun.
I hold the principle that whatever that's discussed in the meeting room stays there & cannot be revealed.
However, I admit the disappointement towards the association that caused me to step down.
At this time I dont want to think or do anything, because I just want to rest for while. I hope all parties respect & understand that.
