Jubilant : Malaysia 3 – 0 win over Indonesia (AFF Suzuki Cup 2010)

I am not a recent follower of Malaysia football scene nor am I an enthusiast Man U or English League. But with all the hype from the Malaysia 3-0 bashing over opponent team Indonesia, I must say that I am really proud of the Malaysia Team ‘Harimau Muda’. Harimau (pronounced hur-y-mao) is Malay for tiger and Muda (moo-da) basically means young. I used to watch football matches as a young girl (huge supporter of Pahang team yo.), but that was long time ago, in the 90s.  Zaman Alan Davidson, Zainal Abidin, Dollah Salleh,Fandi Ahmad).  Stadium Makmur, Stadium Merdeka — I remember the days as a kid watching my favourite team on the pitch.


Jersey kuning hitam with a matching cap — together with family members. I missed those days. Now I do not have any favourite team (at state level), but with the rise of  Harimau Muda, well, it’s time to give full support to our footballers. Couldn’t help a grin to myself as I listened to the radio DJ on FlyFM chatting with listeners about THE long awaited game last night at Bukit Jalil National Stadium. Just one thing about Malaysian football (and the whole sports scene actually) , we should stop taking ministers or whoever already politically connected to hold vital post in any sports association. Stop these courtesy calls for ‘unfit’ candidates for the crucial position. Unless, if, they are reliable and sports-credible+wise ! All the best to the Harimau Muda for the 2nd leg of the semi-final happening in Indonesia !
