Thread: Singapore Team in Tiger Cup'04

  1. #1

    Default Singapore Team in Tiger Cup'04

    frankly speaking, i've never really supported the local football that much until recently when i tuned in for the tiger cup on channel 5...

    i must say that team SG was superb. IMO, they did really well in this tiger cup and have made it to the finals with either indonesia/malaysia.... ( i do have a feeling its gonna be a malaysia & sg game again.... )

    one think i must comment on sg's game with myanmar in the semi-finals.

    the myanmar team has really overdone it. really really rough team of soccer players. in the first leg, already they displayed poor sportsmen ship by grabbing a sg player's shirt from behind after he has fallen onto the ground just to pull him away from the ball so that he can get the ball himself.

    in the just ended not soo long ago 2nd leg, these guys really performed very lousely in sportsmenship. very rough people. although not doing very well, sg managed to turn the tide when they began the 1 men advantage to a 2 men advantage with 3-0 in extra time...

    pushed and grabbed the opposing team players. kicked mud into the match officials. reserved goalie threw bottle into singaporean players face from their bench when mani was just trying to prevent a fight between another sg player with a myanmar player.... and the last part - when one of the myanmar fellow kenna elbowed by a sgrean in the BACK, COVERED HIS FACE AND FELL ONTO THE GROUND.... acting at its BEST im telling u....

    wad do u people think?

    Singapore got lucky because Myanmar was red-carded twice! And Indra's PK miss is unacceptable by any standards!

    * and just to add, like it or not drama is part of pro soccer. Otherwise there will be no such term as 'kelong'.

    The game was a farce. The Myanmar players did themselves no favours with their lack of self-control. Even the coach should be ashamed of himself for protesting the ref's decisions to try to get the S'pore player (Shahril?) sent off when it was obvious that his player was play acting. At the same time, our players were just not smart enough to handle the situation. Being 2-3 goals ahead and playing against 8 men, there is no need to go charging about and expending more energy when you know the result is in the bag. Just keep heads cool and ride out the last few minutes playing possession soccer while making use of the space can already. Actually, In the first place, were it not for the sending off of the Myanmar striker, I don't think we could have won because we kept pumping high balls on a wet surface when we were trying to catch up. Tactically, this is just so naive. Were it not for the sending off, we would probably have lost. Overall, this is not a game eithher team could have been proud to play in.

    We share the same thoughts. Singapore team improving? Not to me they are not.

    eh...wonder whether i was watching the same competition and same matches. i am surprised to find them in this position. there is only one tactic in Team SG - pump high ball, hope and pray.

    yes the match was given to SG with myanmar's immaturity at the crux ... coz they totally outplayed SG when it was 11 against 11.

    there is no pride in the way SG got into the finals. but well, like it or not, they are in the finals. maybe this time, someone else's shoulder will win the cup again this year.

    considering that the weather isn't doing any good to the pitch... it's almost been raining all the way for the past few days.

    Fyi, Myanmar really got 3 players sent off. They were playing with only 8 men on the pitch.

    C'mon.. give some credits to the Lions. Although their performance tonite wasn't all that fantastic, I would say that it was a good performance considering the condition of the pitch..

    As for those who simply only support EPL and write off local soccer, I suggest that u go and watch the Lions play. I was there and I could see that they are playing their hearts out, chasing every ball.. Its the commitment that matters, isn't it? For those who only support winning the side, I have this to say. We don't need fair weather fans here.
    When I do right, no one remembers. When I do wrong, no one ever forgets.

    Myanmar could have a chance to fight back or endure till penatlies if the player didn't kill mud and got himself sent off. 9 man could defend till extra time. But.... reckless and hot headed player cause them the game.
    Never mind Singapore in the finals.

    Me2. I enjoy the "off the field" incident more then the game. The pitch was bad. Both sides didn't have a great game due to the muddy pitch.

    The mud kicking was funny. Still kicked in front of the referee.
    The reserved goalie should get a marksman for the bottle thrown. So accurate, hit the head. Headshot.
    Best actor goes to the player who was elbowed no where near the face, he still can cover face and slowly lie on the ground.
