    It just seems silly to me to hold a trial, which Goh clearly won twice, and then completely discredit what they have witnessed themselves.
    If they didn't hold a trial and just simply selected Ramdan based on international competition record, that's a fair assessment to say that Ramdan has achieved more
    But they had the trial to test specifically who is the stronger player at this current moment.

    Furthermore, even thought I have the utmost respect for LCW as the World number 1 player, he really doesn't have any authority in the hierarchy to decide who gets to play unless he was asked for an opinion as the team captain. However, telling the media of his opinion and something that clearly conflicts with the idea of a trial is just simply illogical. spewing his opinion while BAM is keeping quite about their squad selection demonstrates one of two things. Blatant disregard for the organization's authority, or LCW really doesn't care.

    Furthermore, if Goh just came off an injury and still beat Ramdan
    what is that saying about Ramdan? Plus, if he's recovering, doesn't that mean that he's literally only going to improve from now until the Thomas Cup?

    Either way, BAM chose to have a trial, and if they can't even hold up to the spirit of their choosing, they have some serious issues to deal with in terms of a clear objective.

    What they should do is to have a third trial with both play against the captain.
    Whoever score more points will get the ticket.

    Fair, no?

    It won't be fair.The captain may lose 0-21, 0-21 to Ramdan and beat Goh 21-0, 21-0.

    I think BAM should play the role over here for the 4th person who should be participated in the Thomas cup squad. The selection is fair enough. That's the prove who is the best player for the current situation. Is just 2 common matters in here between Ramdan and Goh:-

    Goh Soon Huat : lower rank compare than Ramdan (current ranking 135) can say not much experience in the 'international' tournament plus just recover from injury. But he's good in the selection by beating Ramdan.

    Ramdan : Current ranking 51, very good in a few international tournaments. But, he lost to Goh for the trial selection.

    In my opinion, both of them are qualified to represent Malaysia for the Thomas squad is just to be enough, Yes! Goh should be in the team because he won the trial selection.

    Just forget what DLCW has said. He might have his own interest why he came out with that kind of statement.

    Just my 2 cents.

    then Goh should appeal for a 4th trial.

    Do right by Soon Huat, BAM

    BY RAJES PAUL

    Goh Soon Huat plays at this year's Malaysian Grand Prix Gold while national singles chief coach Rashid Sidek looks on. Soon Huat came up tops in both selection trials for the Thomas Cup Finals.

    WILL the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) shoot themselves in the foot on Saturday?
    For the sake of fairplay and justice, let’s hope that the BAM council will make the right decision by naming Goh Soon Huat as the fourth singles player for the Thomas Cup Finals in New Delhi from May 18-25.
    After all, Soon Huat did come out tops in the selection trials for Thomas Cup Finals – not once but twice, mind you.
    There is no denying that Misbun Ramdan Misbun is a better player – having won five international tournaments abroad and is an aggressive player with immense talent and skill. But, he did lose to Soon Huat in the trials.



    So, if BAM were to chose Ramdan instead of Soon Huat, they’ll be sending the wrong message across – that the selection trial is just an exercise in futility.
    BAM, however, can accommodate both Soon Huat and Ramdan in the team if they decide to name a five-man singles and five-man doubles squad for the Finals. This will be a win-win solution.
    As it stands, five players are already confirmed for the doubles – Hoon Thien How-Tan Wee Kiong, Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem and Tan Boon Heong.
    But if BAM decide to go for six doubles and four singles, then they’ll have three options: give youngster Ow Yao Han a break; bring back old-timer Koo Kien Keat; or bank on mixed doubles specialist Chan Peng Soon to add depth.
    As for the Uber Cup Finals, there should not be any dispute. Former internationals and world No. 24 Ng Hui Lin-Ng Hui Ern should make the team without any opposition.
    The selection of the Thomas-Uber Cup Finals squads, however, should not be the only agenda for the day.
    BAM should also address the need for a national coaching director to helm the national team.
    In the lead-up to the team’s preparations for the Thomas-Uber Cup Finals this year, there was evidence of poor planning and lack of strong leadership in the coaching and training aspects.
    This month’s Sabah Open was scrapped because it was too close to the Thomas-Uber Cup Finals. A national coaching director would not have even thought of holding a tournament in the same month as the Finals.
    Reigning SEA Games women’s doubles champions Woon Khe Wei-Vivian Hoo almost missed qualifying for this year’s World Championships in Copenhagen because they were not sent to several tournaments this year.
    That caused their world ranking to take a hit.
    A national coaching director would have made sure that didn’t happen.
    The selection trials for the Thomas-Uber Cup Finals were done at one’s whims and fancy. A national coaching director would have put a lot of thought before suggesting it or even executing it.
    There is another important issue that deserves a lengthy deliberation by the council on Saturday – the development programme.
    Malaysia’s results in the Asian Junior Championships and World Junior Championships were disappointing, to say the least. There were no medals to show for and the problem of finding a successor for world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei still stands out like a sore thumb.
    Some council members are genuinely concerned about the lack of progress in the sport. So, rather than being silent observers, let’s hope they speak up.

    Thomas Cup: It's Soon Huat!

    BY LIM TEIK HUAT

    PETALING JAYA: Good sense prevailed when the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) named Goh Soon Huat as the fourth singles player for the Thomas Cup Finals in New Delhi from May 18-25.
    The badminton community was on tenterhooks waiting for BAM’s decision as there had been talk that they would heed world No. 1 Lee Chong Wei’s suggestion that Misbun Ramdan Misbun be included because he is more aggressive and has won five international tournaments so far.
    On Saturday, it all came down to honouring their word at their council meeting and BAM went with the winner of the two selection trials.
    Soon Huat, who had beaten Ramdan twice in the selection trials, has yet to prove himself outside the country. But BAM president Tengku Tan Sri Mahaleel Tengku Ariff believes Soon Huat has vindicated BAM’s faith in him.



    Soon Huat will join Chong Wei, Chong Wei Feng and Daren Liew in the single’s, while BAM have entered six doubles players – Tan Boon Heong, Hoon Thien How, Lim Khim Wah, Goh V Shem, Tan Wee Kiong and Chan Peng Soon – to complete the 10-member strong Thomas Cup squad.
    “It’s a decision the council members were unanimous on and we were transparent. We wanted the best athletes to go. After looking at the physical condition report and the report from the coaches that he put in a lot of hard work, we opted for Soon Huat,” said Tengku Mahaleel, adding that centralised training will start on Monday.
    “The shuttlers will check in tomorrow and they will stay together with the coaches to encourage team-building before they leave for New Delhi on May 15.”
    The team have been finalised but the expectations have been toned down compared to previous editions considering the lack of depth this time.
    Realistically Malaysia do not have a chance at all to contend for the title and Tengku Mahaleel admitted their target is to reach the semi-finals.
    “We would like to win but the reality is we are the underdogs this time. But I would like to challenge the players to perform beyond their capabilities.”
    Malaysia are in Group C with South Korea, Germany and India.
    Only the top two teams from the group will advance to the quarter-finals.
    Two years ago, at the Finals in Wuhan, China, Malaysia lost 3-0 to the hosts in the quarter-finals.
    Tengku Mahaleel also defended the decision to send their women’s doubles shuttlers to Kelantan to train for three days.
    The stint involved reigning SEA Games champions Woon Khe Wei-Vivian Hoo, Amelia Anscelly-Soong Fie Cho and Lee Meng Yean-Lim Yin Loo, who have been picked as the doubles players for the Uber Cup Finals taking place in New Delhi at the same time.
    “We got the coaches to work on different game plans as well as improve their service.”
    Besides the six doubles players, the singles players going to the Finals are Tee Jing Yee, Yang Li Lian, Lim Chiew Sien and Lim Yin Fun.

    I applaud the decision made by BAM to include GOH as the 4th single, this is a massive decision that not only affect the current crop of players but also those youngster who want to be world beaters, to work hard and believe in yourself.

    Sentimental wise, I would like to see Ramdan get the slot because of what the Sideks has done for Malaysia badminton and I also believe Ramdan is a better player against others players, but Ramdan style is not suited to beat GOH, that’s why Ramdan lost 3 times to GOH.

    However, what BAM said before the trial must be honoured, the winner get the fourth slot.

    What BAM did today is a victory to Justice, Fair Play and Honour… Well done BAM !!!

    Eagle,

    It wasn't easy before BC went for upgrading which has now became worse. That's why the posts are less.

    Before upgrading, I have to edit several times before the final product looked presentable and it is very tedious work.
