I just came upon this article from The Star, and it may be worth reproducing here.
Malaysia, unlike Japan and China, lack a quality supremo to lead team
Tuesday May 29, 2012
...When asked about the recipe for his success, Yong-bo replied curtly: ďIf I gave it away, then the world would be the same and that wonít be too nice for us.
ďWe canít go on doing the same thing because the results would be the same. One must always be receptive to change.Ē
...The 46-year-old Joo-bongís work in Japan over the last seven-and-half years is finally bearing fruit. Over the last two years, Japan have shown depth in both their menís and womenís team.
ďAll of them are club players. They only participate in centralised training prior to a major event. It isnít easy to keep the team together when they are scattered all over. Communication is the key and Iím blessed because I have committed players,Ē he said.
While Japan and China have outstanding supremos to plan, strategise and build the team, Malaysia are clearly lacking in that area.
Gone are the days when someone dynamic like Tan Sri Elyas Omar or Datuk Punch Gunalan took the lead to ensure that the system delivered world class players.
...BAM have been running around like a headless chicken ever since they terminated Yap Kim Hock as the chief coach after the 2008 Olympics. Four years have gone by and they must know by now that something is seriously wrong.
Wuhan clearly showed that.

All these blame games do more damage than sitting down to think, think, and think rationally about what happened, why it happened, and what could be done to improve, maintain or at least stop the slide in a more manageable manner looking ahead.
Suggestions here are almost all blame games, which reflects an immature and emotional response. What we need is a head that can think.
Here, may I suggest you revisit this again http://www.charlesdarwinresearch.org...n_Behavior.pdf. You will be surprised that this article will be rebutted, denied, and also agreed to by people. The really smart people believe in it but will have two very different versions when asked to give their opinions. In public they will say the article is rubbish but in private they say otherwise. Like smart people they know when to be politically correct.
In a more open society like the US you can see why Asian Americans who comprise only 4% of the population, take up about 24% of the Ivy League universities enrollment. Now, if you filter this Asian Americans to just East Asians and Indochinese students, then the figures will be more telling and staggering.
In fact some outstanding East Asian students are claiming and suing these colleges for discrimination. The US, even Ivy League colleges do have glass ceilings or "barriers" and do also practice affirmative action.
If one were to look closer at courses that require more brains, like Sciences, Maths, and Engineering, the complete dominance of the East Asian should send an alarm bell to the US.
A closer example is Singapore, which knows a good thing when it sees one. It genuinely tries to attract such brains. Examples are like smart Malaysian Chinese to provide a continuous stream, the 'Blue Collar" immigration Plan for Hong Kong some years back, and an attempt to lure almost all of Hong Kong's tycoons many years back prior to HK's handover to China. This may not be politically correct but it makes sense. Do you think your country would do this? This is how Malaysians and BAM should do-think rationally and don't look foolish blaming everybody.

Do you think both LYB and PJB now can tell their current respective bosses to fly a kite? Of course not.

You sure send the right advise
to the wrong place
and to the wrong people.
We here don't run BAM
and very slim chance they are looking at this post.
But if they do, they would be rather pissed off
for you ask them to read Charles Darwin

FYI, Park is today's head coach for Japan and these Japanese are still mainly part time players. Do you think this part time thing is Park's idea or it was that way all the time? Or maybe he tried but failed to convert them to full timers.

For now, I have no problems with BAM's reaction. You must let things, heated so much by bluster, to settle down and then take a cool and rational approach to analyse the cause or causes of such "so-called" failure. Failure must be measured as a deviation of actual being short of your capability. This must be distinguished from coming out short of your expectation. The former is a reality check, the latter a "fool's" day-dreaming.

Here is one area of contradiction Malaysia has to look into. At the juniors levels Malaysia has always been one of the top countries in the boys, both singles and in particular in doubles. So based on this very narrow base to work on the country looks very good at the grass root level.
However, when it comes to the international senior level the country simply cannot make it.
Now the leap from "boys" to "men" separates the boys who never grow up and the men who have nobody to depend except their own grit and personal character to make it.
Perhaps this could be one area to take a look at. If not, channeling additional resources to the grass roots to achieve the same type of achievements the current crop of juniors are seeing will meet the same Waterloo at the senior level.
This giant leap from boys to men is not as easy as we think. Here is where the Chinese, Koreans and Japanese excel.

I read that many Malaysian BCers wish to have LYB as a coach for Malaysia
I read that many Malaysian BCers wish to have LYB as a coach for Malaysia. But, how long would he stay in Malaysia?
My guess - He wouldn't last long; perhaps just weeks.
