    True. TKH has this big problem of underestimating his players opponents. INA players always the most dangerous because they are unpredictable.( their favourite prey:MAS!)

    KKK has severe shortsightedness all the while, from young. Wears specs when not playing, when playing, wear contact kenses.

    I remember KKK saying 1,000 deg in the AEC interview after AE 2007 win. I never heard the power can be so high, or maybe one side 500 deg, plus he has astigmatism. Those of us who wear specs will know, if dont wear specs/ contacts, cannot read signboard, that's only medium severity. If high severity...., cannot read food menu? :p

    I reckon it will be INA's first failure and a sign of them to step down from the powerhouse status if they really fail
    to maintain their golden tradition.
    Malaysia has a good chance from Koo/Tan. I believe they will get a medal.As for Gold errr....maybe to achieve that target they should not be so confident only about their ability to do it but also pray for other pairs to screw up like the Koreans.
    England is never a good place for INA to deliver good results. Maybe that's what TKH means from the article coupled with the INA pair that is not expected to win anything at all.
    If INA still can deliver a medal from MD, I must say the Olympics is a cursed/jinxed event in INA's favour. For some reason they always succeed to get at least medal from the MD category.

    Let see if Koo-Tan can really deliver....all this talk about the pair, positively or negatively, out through the window once the competition starts...then we'll know which coaches should talk/predict less....

    Which seed they will end up with ?

    Preferably BoMo because they have 7-4 head-to-head record against them. Againt Cai-Fu it's a 50-50 game too.

    If they end up against a Korean pair, they might as well concede defeat because they lose 100 percent.

    Actually KooTan are the ones the top 4 would like to avoid. They are still rated among the favourites by FuCai.

    I beleive they are the darkhorses. KKK have lost weight, much lighter, no late night, TBH more muscular, smashing more powerful.
    Be afraid, be very afraid of this pair.

    looks like this London Olympic will be their final appearance as the regular pair, after that they will split and pair with another player...

    Really? Do you think BAM will be bold enough to do that? I doubt it. Let us just wait and see. If they really split up, TBH with HTH is a good bet. The only down side is THT's age.

    TBH/KKK has a very tough path in OG. They have their korean nemesis in their group. They need to produce their very best to advance.

    I personally think MD title is rather wide open with JJS/LYD as strongest contender. But in big match like OG anything can happen.

    BAM cannot force them to play together. There's a rift between them (anybody can confirm this) but they will go out with a bang :D. Hopefully the right bang :D.
