I seem to remember a similar predicament in 70s. After Msia failed in Thomas Cup 1970 and 1973 Tan Aik Huang,P Gunalan,
and Ng Boo Bee left. They had to rebuild a team from scrtach and in 1976 built a team of youngsters called Gunalan's babes,
with promising players like James Selvaraj, Phua Ah Hua ,Dominic Soong & Cheah Hong Chong (CHC of this forum).They entered the T final in 1976 and lost 9-0 to Ina. This team slacked a bit in 1979.
After the Thomas Cup 1976 players like Dominic and CHC left for studies as they saw no future.After 1979 the Sidek brothers surfaced.
The past showed that it is actually possible to build a good team from scratch and still perform credibly in T Cup.
Strangely they dont see having a world beater like LCW in their goals in future, perhaps they are thinking of the long term
and a step at a time. It might seem that certain people no longer feature in their plans of building a new team.
Morten Frost was once questioned why after 1 year in Msia why he still could not produce an AE champion ,
his reply was it takes years to develop a player, if I could produce a champion within 1 year the whole world will come
knocking at my door.

CTC not interested in producing world champions?
Woke up this morning; found an interesting discussion on, that the CTC is not interested in producing another LCW or something like that.
What's the point of having a national association representing the best quality and the best interests of the country?
I had responded to this attitude in a post #534 on the other (Misbun resigns...) thread. Here is a part of that response....
This is the trap that most people fall into. So let BAM go ahead. Get 100 mediocre players to represent the country. How many SS titles or Gold Medals do you see? All your mediocre players will mostly be slaughtered by round 2, and come home with some excuse. Then the circus continues. This is exactly what a country like China would encourage Malaysia and Indonesia to do. But get just a few excellent, talented and totally dedicated players and throw your resources at them, what do you get? If nothing else, a better chance at that gold medal. Meanwhile, you have just ruined the careers of 100 mediocre players. They spent some very good years doing something they were unsuccesful at, and now dont have an alternate career to fall back on. Well done!!!

MAS could be just about to have a World or Olympics Champion soon
Agree with you, badMania.
IMHO, MAS could be just about to have a World or Olympic Champion soon (I mean LCW doing it with Misbun soon).
However, it appears that this BAM's new training system is planning to do it later without LCW and Misbun. I cannot see any logical reason to create this plan of action; but to say that BAM felt the shame after Malaysia lost to Japan at the 2010 Thomas Cup.
To me, MAS will miss having a World or Olympic Champion named Lee Chong Wei, if BAM think that they are the best administrators for Malaysian Badminton.

I doubt if Rexy, Tan Kim Her, or KJ has a coaching cert.Perhaps in Hall they dont even have faith in their own system.
I think Park JB and Lee Jae Bok have certs(and a PHD too).
I would guess that perhaps the CTC wants to start from a fresh slate, build up a pool of mediocre players first by teaching (talent or not), form a team, then coach the better ones to excel.(perhaps like Japan?)
When Han Jian was coach he often regretted that he could not make much headway with training senior players as they had old habits and difficult to change,especially in playing techniques, he then went on to train kids. Even years ago there were attempts by some to separate the seniors from juniors because the juniors may learn undesirable things from seniors, inclusive of things outside badminton.The playing techniques of the Japanese/Koreans are definitely ,let's say, different.Indonesia is even willing to bring in Li Mao.
Those are merely things to think about,the CTC have made a statement but they may have not revealed all their future plans yet and they may be up to sth for all we know.Of course for all we know they may not know what they are doing, so far everything I've said is speculation, time will tell.
Let's not forget the CTC Director and Performance coach are ex-players.

Admin members saying that they’ll quit if Misbun gets his way
This is why we get to read Admin members saying that they’ll quit if Misbun gets his way;
At least three Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) coaching and training committee members are ready to resign if the national body give in to the demands of coach Misbun Sidek.
And one of them said; "What is the point of staying on if the system endorsed by the council is not respected? We changed the structure for the betterment of the sport. It is pointless for people like me to stay and try to make a difference for the association if we go back to the old ways.”

Quit threat if BAM goes soft
And we have other news on this matter; Quit threat if BAM goes soft
Here, we read; "If someone doesn't want to follow decisions of the CTC and our suggestions are ignored all the time, there is no point sitting on the committee."

Don’t turn Malaysian Badminton into the joke of the century
This article summarises it for us;
Don’t turn Malaysian badminton into the joke of the century. Don’t make “resignation” a tool to destroy Malaysian badminton.
"Should the coaching committee members carry out their threat to resign, so be it. Maybe there will be others who can work towards achieving glory in badminton in time to come."

OK, here's my problem. I keep hearing and reading that the committee say (and I quote from different press sources):
"system endorsed by the council"
"We changed the structure for the betterment of the sport."
"The new structure has been agreed upon by us all"
"...our intention to come up with the new structure is to move forward and catch up with other countries, especially China."
Does anyone here know exactly what the "new structure" is???
