For all you know, Malaysia could be the 'Finalist' in TC finals. They could be seeded 2nd. If JJS comes back, then it will be tough for Malaysia. See, in a Team tournament, it is hard to predict. There's always some injuries.
Who is that smart fellow that 'gave up before playing'??? kekeke... sack him!

looks like both MAS thomas and uber cup team advanced to QF and gonna face India and Thailand respectively...
here's the hero for MAS team from the beginning of the event:
Goh V Shem/Lim Khim Wah (beating Lee Yong Dae/Shin Baek Choel to win a crucial team point)
Yang Li Lian (make a comeback to take a final point for MAS team)
Goh Liu Ying/Lim Yin Loo (snatch one point from formidable China team although lost 1-4)

There's always heroes and villians. Especially NCC for opening his foul mouth.
As for Hafiz, can't blame him much due to injury. I still don't like the idea of putting an injured player to play.
I think TKH reads this forum correct?
National doubles chief coach Tan Kim Her was thrilled that his gamble to stick with the original line-up worked as they managed to hurt South Korea where it mattered most – their doubles department.
“Our victory today comes down to excellent team work. Koo and Tan’s win over their nemesis should give them a lot of confidence. The players and coaches did a lot of video analysis and today, Koo-Tan played the right strategy to nail them,” said Kim Her.
“I am happy that Khim Wah-V Shem also played a fantastic match to upset the Koreans. They did not give up despite losing the opening game but continued to pressure the Koreans. Their performances augurs well for the future.”
Ah Her..... (sounds like pondan), pls identify yourself..... lol.

the new year means nothing to BAM.. its the same old same old
Disastrous outing for national players
PETALING JAYA: Malaysia had the largest group of players abroad over the last one week but none of them used it as a platform for a breakthrough.
In the Australian Open Grand Prix Gold, the mixed doubles pair of Chan Peng Soon and Goh Liu Ying were the top performers when they reached the final before losing to Taiwan’s Chen Hung-ling-Cheng Wen-hsing.
The back-up pairs of Lim Khim Wah-Goh V Shem and Hoon Thien How-Teo Kok Siang had been expected to do well but both performed below expectations in Sydney.
All three pairs will get a chance to make amends at next week’s Asian Badminton Championships in Qingdao but it will be difficult as hosts China will be fielding all their top players.
Malaysian players also featured in – the Osaka International Challenge and French International — but again failed to win anything.
Misbun Ramdan Misbun reached his first final at the French International but is still struggling to beat players ranked in the world top 30. Three others — Goh Soon Huat, Iskandar Zul*karnain Zainuddin and Loh Wei Sheng — did not go beyond the last eight.
All four players will get another chance in the Dutch International this week.
It was a total disaster in the Osaka Challenge as none of the Malaysians made it to the final. The more experienced Vountus Indra Mawan-Mohd Lutfi Zaim Abdul Khalid went down 14-21, 22-24 to Indonesia’s Gideon Markus Fernaldi-Agripinna Prima Rahmanto Putra in the semi-finals.

Ewe Hock: BAM need a supremo to take charge of team
By RAJES PAUL
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian badminton needs a supremo — a chief coach with full control to make decisions on team matters.
Former national No. 1 Ong Ewe Hock feels such a person is needed to run the show as there were too many meddling hands interfering with the team.
“In China, Li Yongbo calls the shots on coaching and training. He selects the players and monitors the coaches. The management are there to support but not to interfere. In Malaysia though, we don’t have one, but many, involved in decision making in coaching and training matters,” said Ewe Hock, who hopes his frank assessment will be taken in the right spirit.
In the singles department, Rashid Sidek is the chief coach but only for the men as the women are under Chi Shanrong. In the doubles, Tan Kim Her is the chief coach but only for the men. He has no say in the programmes run by Rexy Mainaky for the women’s doubles and Jeremy Gan for the mixed doubles.
All these coaches and players are under two teams of overseers — the coaching and training committee headed by BAM secretary Ng Chin Chai, and the four-man high performances team comprising Chin Chai, Wong Ah Jit, Datuk James Selvaraj and Mohd Ariffin Ghani.
Ariffin came into the picture at a later state as BAM felt that it was important to also have input from the National Sports Council (NSC) and this team’s job is only until the London Olympics.
“There are just too many heads. The Thomas Cup Finals are coming up (May 20-27 in Wuhan) and I wonder who is calling the shots on the selection of players — the management or the coaches? The coaches should know best.
“There should be one chief coach or even one coaching director. He should make decisions and be responsible or be accountable for it. If he fails, he should go.”
Ewe Hock, who is currently co-owner of the company that promotes the badminton brand XTRM, recalled his 10-year stint as a national player from 1992 to 2002.
“I was under seven coaches — Yang Yang, Han Jian, Morten Frost Hansen, Misbun Sidek, Chen Changjie, Park Joo-bong and Indra Gunawan. I think Malaysia’s singles enjoyed their best year under Indra. We had about five to seven players in the top rankings. Indra had the say in selection matters.”
In fact, Indra’s boldness in giving youngsters Lee Tsuen Seng and Mohd Hafiz Hashim a chance to feature in the 2002 Thomas Cup Finals in Guangzhou bore fruit when Malaysia reached the final after upsetting China in the semi-finals.
Ewe Hock also hoped that the selection of players would be more open.
“The best players should represent the country. In the United States, a special trial for the Olympic Games is conducted and it is open to everyone. Only the best get to go. If they are injured or unable to make it to the trials, they don’t get selected,” said Ewe Hock.
“There are more clubs mushrooming in Malaysia. Their players should be given an equal chance and opportunity to represent the country. There should be healthy rivalry as eventually the nation will benefit.”
Ewe Hock said he was happy to note BAM’s improved financial position.
“Many major companies are supporting the national body and this is good. Those days, BAM used to delay payments because of financial constraints. Now, they can send more juniors for international tournaments. I used to receive RM1,300 as a senior player and now, a back-up player gets that. This is good,” he said.
On the current top two singles players in the world — Lee Chong Wei and Lin Dan — Ewe Hock said: “They are skilful and are special with their own styles but, eventually, the outcome of matches between these two players boils down to who is mentally stronger.
“Remember this year’s Australian Open final (between Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic)? Physically, Djokovic was a spent force but he showed great mental strength to win it. This factor will determine who wins at this year’s Olympic Games.”

This is why Ewe Hock made this statement; too many heads in BAM for making the best decision. We need a supremo to really handle and have a say in coaching and training matters (someone with the solid background of this sport). I think MAS baddy fans have a little bit of hope when BAM decided to hire a High Performance Director. But instead BAM hired themselves: Ng Chin Chai (lawyer who handles training programs), Kenny Goh (gen. manager), and James Selvaraj (who once asked what was he really supposed to do in BAM). Bam's president background is ex chairman of Proton (MAS motor industries).
This so called dilemma has been discussing so long, it stinks.
