I remember once LCW said he and his that time coach, Misbun sidek will go around the country and spot young talent for the future of national team.. But how's the project now? Gone down in the drain already?

Andrew keen on unearthing more gold
Thursday, December 1st, 2011 23:57:00
KUALA LUMPUR: The BA of Malaysia (BAM) seems fixated with their prized possession — world No 1 Lee Chong Wei.
However, Kuala Lumpur Racquet Club (KLRC) want to ensure there are more players like Chong Wei.
KLRC are banking on world and Asian junior champion Zulfadli Zulkifli (pic). The goal is to see Zulfadli net an Olympic gold medal.
They are also embarking on a talent scouting programme.
After all, KLRC is headed by Datuk Seri Andrew Kam — a man who made his name in the goldmining business.
“I only know how to produce gold... not silver or copper,” said Andrew candidly.

Here's a little salt to rub into LCW's recent wounds, from none other than his own head coach! This is what Rashid Sidek had to say in an interview last month.
18. Can you name a few international players, current or retired, who you regard as best or famous for a specific technique or an area of skills?
Lin Dan's overall game, it's beautiful. That's if he plays properly. His movement around the court is like walking but he has the explosiveness in his movements, Lin Dan's diving is also very natural. Chong Wei has even learnt the diving skills from Lin Dan.
Lin Dan rises to top earlier than Lee Chong Wei. Opponents learn from each other game to excel in this sport. Lin Dan is truly a complete player. As for players before, it would be Morten Forst for his solid rallies, Yang Yang for his speed and power and Zhao Jian Hua for his deception.
25. What are the basic requirements to playing good badminton?
Talented(natural stroke) , drive and fire, strong desire, self motivated, motivation, big dreams, far targets, and most importantly discipline. Lee Chong Wei is not that talented, but he has strong will power, committed, drive and discipline.
Hmmm... what message has Rashid succeeded in sending out to people who read this? I agree, he may be just truthful, and saying what most people may privately know, but in his position as head coach of MAS badminton, he also has a responsibility to stand by his people publicly. He could have chosen to deflect the questions or provide a more diplomatic response; instead we have him practically accepting that LCW has no answer to LD. Is this the way to "Go for Gold?"

^^^ That's just a reflection of the vast difference between LCW's people vs LD's people. The latter knows the way of propaganda and media manipulation, they know how to be tactful instead of truthful, and that the battle doesn't just end on court.

I don't see anything wrong with that. It's only saying the obvious. Different players have different characteristics.

My point is, Rashid was probably not retaining his awareness of his position of head coach of BAM during this interview, and did not use the opportunity to enhance public perception, and endorse his own champion player. In fact, he did mostly the opposite! And IMO, it is this ability to think correctly on one's feet and that appears to have reached epidemic proportions at BAM.

^^^ If this were to occur in the corporate world (eg. chairman of the board sheds his own company's CEO in a similarly bad light), you can bet there would be severe repercussions.
There's something about the malaysian culture that can be "tidak apa" often times. They are sometimes not the most shrewd and cut-throat competitive like some other countries.

I still don't see a problem. The interview still did mention LCW's positive attributes.
Now this is what happens in the corporate world (it's different to sports)....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerald_Ratner

RS is not playing the 'game' like the Chinese counterpart. He didnt get prizes for that interview, did he?No wonder LCW looks like a half beaten man each time he steps into the court to play against LD. there is no fire in LCW.

RS is a straight forward guy, his observations about Lin Dan is in fact very true.
Of all the over a thousand elite players in china, there is only one Lin Dan.
Between Lin Dan and Lee Chong Wei, the different is in their character and both of them has the opposite of each other.
You guys watching them play for so many years you should be able to guess what that is

Frost can add bite to faltering Chong Wei

A point BAM may need to consider after coach Misbun Sidek's departure is the right form of guidance and advice for Lee from coach Tey Seu Bock.
It would be wise for BAM to consider hiring Danish coach Morten Frost to analyse and provide the much-needed self-belief in Lee's game before the Olympics.
Frost should be employed as the high-performance director.
He has the advantage of previously working in Malaysia and knowing the place, environment, people and the workings of BAM.
12-08-2011, 10:03 PM #204
Additionally, Morten Frost is the one that discovers LCW talent during his young age. Hopefully, if BAM asks Morten Frost to support BAM once again, there will be a new dimension at BAM.
