SG in 2034 World Cup? What happened To Goal 2010 lol

Recommended Posts

Honestly, everytime NATO, talk only, set target, but there's no feasible, real action on the ground to make it happen. Only piecemeal measures, some good, some stupid, all ineffective in the end.

 

To me there has to be several things that can (and should) be done if we really want to be serious about this, and football in Singapore.

 

1) Pump money into local football and the league. A lot of money. Get our multi million corporations (and there are definitely more than a dozen of them here) to sponsor one team each. Then they can pay our football teams properly and players can actually have a proper professional career playing football. The money can also make the clubs more professional too (proper training setup, high quality coaching, world class facilities).

 

Football is well past the era where players can play solely for glory. They also need to earn a living too.

 

2) NS. This is definitely a sticking point, but I don't get why MINDEF has to be so inflexible, why die die must make everyone serve in their teens. It feels very short-sighted IMO. I mean, professional players end their careers in their 30s, which is still a relatively young age. Why cannot make them serve then? Don't tell me 30 plus cannot learn military skills meh? So stupid right.

 

For me, any Singaporean who has a contract with an overseas club when he reaches NS eligible age, his NS will be deferred until he ends his footballing career. The whole Ben Davies saga was a farce and completely not positive for Singapore at all. Just because of MINDEF pettiness we lost a young talent and potentially our first Premier League player.

 

3) Encourage our players to go abroad, so that they can learn and gain experience. Right now I think it's a good start, with a few of our players in Thailand, but we should aim even further. Malaysia doesn't count, their level is barely above us only. I like that the younger Fandi son went to Norway. I hope he does well and becomes successful.

 

I've heard good stuff about the current Japanese coach, but however good he is, if our footballing culture remains the same, even if we bring in Mourinho we will still not be successful.

Maybe sg can have a different model for wc qualification. A country that does not need its own league. Train the boys in sports schools, send them for annual attachments to good clubs worldwide, give them at least a diploma while doing that. Ns exemption. If by 23 they don't cut it they're out the door with a qualification and job lobang. No need for a low quality league no one watches.

Realistically speaking, to qualify for 2034 WC, the players would be the students in primary schools now. How many primary schools have good soccer programs in place, or even a soccer CCA with a full sized field? Most of the primary schools I walked by only have a half sized field.

A bit tough ah. If the boys become successful the clubs may not be willing to release them for international duty.

 

Need something to make the boys still have some attachment to here.

Setting a new target of 2034 which all of us know will be pushed to infinity and beyond just allow those in charge to have cushy jobs for another decade or more.

 

Don't waste time, money (especially our taxpayers' money) on these frivolous (and mostly will fail again given proven records) pursuits.  Let local football die a natural death.  No one will even notice.

Ya, they should aim bigger. Like Fandi's younger son who went Norway. Or that chap who went to Japan.

how many of the parents of those primary school boys willing to  let their kids be a pro soccer players?

there is only 2 types from both extreme, 

those extremely well to do, their wealth can feed a few lifetime, they can afford to let their son chase their dreams, any dream.

or those in extreme poverty, family struggling, if straight after sec school, the son can bring in some money, they dun mind at all.

or they dun even care what their son is doing outside.

if we give special treatment to soccer, then what about other sports, 

(but there is no need to talk about this anymore,)

I saw stats of yemen game. Sg surprisingly can dominate a mid-east team. Hopefully it's a new level of confidence.

It’s a young Yemen team with not too tall players. The Lions dominated the first 30 mins...lots of chances created but shot blank. 

The new Japanese coach seems to play to the players strength with more short passes and running into positions in group of 3-4 during an advance. Hardly saw the old dreaded long bump into opponent half to only gave possession away.

There are still SA and Uzbekistan to beat in the group. 

Ironically, Uzbe could beat China, NK, Syria, Qatar but lost to Palestine...
