So who do you think will be axed? I really think CKB should get the boot but they haven't really axed players since Lim Fang Yang.

At the risk of over-simplifying a point, the NA's are supposed to identify the natural resources with potential, and it is their responsibility to convert them into the finished product. If you do not get the finished product you want, then it can be because:
a) Process is faulty
b) people applying the process are faulty/incompetent/biased/not qualified
c) incorrect natural resource identified due to faulty/compromised process of selection and inadequate selection criteria.
How ever I look at it, it's not the players who are really the problem. They are the victims. It is the players whose lives are being messed with.
Sadly, this is true of many NAs.

CKB maybe, maybe not, depends on how Rashid views this guy. Syawal will be dropped if they havent already done so. The girls wouldnt be axed unless they choose to leave,already so few as it is

According to sinchew, LCW is going to be DL, CKB and CWF's mentor.........

LCW tipped DL (seriously?), CWF, CKB, Arif, MRamdan (hopefully he didnt tip him because of Misbun senior) as potential prospects for MAS MS...
Daren's 25 already, 5 more years left for him to shine, if he could last that long. CWF n CKB...maybe. Ramdan has lot to learn, he's a bit lucky he's still got more years to step up. Arif's 23, Im not sure about he's future either. Hmm...suddenly I see 'bleak' future for MAS MS

DL and CWF can become players who can pull off upsets here and there if they try hard enough. Not a winner but I can see them making QF and SF and pulling off pleasant surprises here and there. This will be enough for Malaysia at the moment. If they can become consistent quarter-finalists, I would say that it has fufilled Malaysia's needs in MS for the moment, since they are not getting any younger. Do not expect LCWs or WCH from them. Expect a NTM at best.
I have never really fancied CKB, so I might be biased but judging from this year's and last year's results, he deserves to be AXED. CKB seems to get special favour from LCW because he is always LCW's final sparring partner for major events so they might keep CKB. I would like it if limsy shares why CKB will never be axed, though. The only reason I can think of is he is LCW's special sparring partner.
Arif just doesn't have the attitude. While DL and CWF have shown different approach to the game since they have gotten more chance to go Super Series and became part of the elite, Arif seemed to be content just fooling around.

Zulfadli Zulkifli is apparently not included in LCW's select pick. Perhaps the young lad has 'wasted' the most critical part of his formative years at the wrong place. This may be a classic example for future generations of wannabes to be more humble and less arrogant.

what MAS should be doing well in is the MD department where they are known to do better than CHN historically in this area, but right now suffering in depth because of their own players attitude, BAM unable to focus on other pairs other than KKK/TBH and also because of their 1st ranked pair don't have the right attitude or too busy having fun (clubbing etc.). MAS need atleast 2 good doubles pairs, like Choong/lee not so far back who were close to being an equal 1st pair for MAS (although they were 2nd best to KKK/TBH).

Kwong Beng wants to revive his fortunes under Hendrawan
KUALA LUMPUR: Singles back-up shuttler Chan Kwong Beng is banking on a change of coach to give his career a new lease of life.
The 24-year-old is ready to part ways with national chief coach Rashid Sidek because he strongly believes that he can revive his fortunes under former world champion Hendrawan of Indonesia.
Kwong Beng has been training under Rashid since 2010 when his previous coach, Misbun Sidek, left the national team.
Kwong Beng is hoping that the coaching and training committee, who will meet on Sept 8, will agree to his request. He claims that he has spoken to Rashid and Hendrawan and that both coaches have agreed to the swap.
It is learnt that Mohd Arif Abdul Latif may go the other way – leaving Hendrawan to train under Rashid.
Kwong Beng showed that he is still an asset to the national team when he was selected to accompany world No. 2 Lee Chong Wei as sparring partner for the London Olympic Games last month.
However, Kwong Beng has not achieved any remarkable results over the last two years.
The player, once touted as a star in the making for his explosive movements and good attacking play, is desperate for another chance to come good.
“I need a change. I have not achieved any significant results under Rashid. It has all been a big blur for me ... and my fitness has been a big letdown. I just need a change, one last shot to turn my game around,” said Kwong Beng.
“I have nothing against Rashid but his style does not suit me. I need a coach who is more aggressive. I want to train under Hendrawan. I have seen how he pushes his players in training. I want to improve my fitness level under him. “My style of play needs to be supported with good fitness but I am not as fast as I want to be on court. Something is lacking and I know most of it is my own shortcoming.”
Kwong Beng is also aware of the risk he is taking in asking for a change.
“I am actually taking a big gamble here by making this request. If I still do not excel under Hendrawan, it is a clear sign for me to end my career,” said Kwong Beng.
“Over the last few years, I have spent time sparring with Chong Wei and learning so much from him. Now, it is time for me to do something for myself ... for my badminton career. I need to take such a drastic action. This is my last chance to do something if I want to be a genuine medal contender at the next Olympic Games.”

i guess the best bet is to really to ask Tan chun Seang back. cmon, he is now ranked 39in the world, and just a few places behind DL, Hafiz and CWF, even though he didnt really join asian tournaments and is out of national team
