    1st SG U18 to rank top in ITTF ranking

    For football, it used to be the army NS guys play for SAFFC whilst the police NS guys play for Home United and like u mentioned it worked to a certain extent though I still feel its not the same as being attached to a professional club but Ok at least there was some compromise. For some reason and this has also been mentioned in the papers, NS boys playing in the SPL has now more or less stopped as Warriors and Home United are now full fledged football clubs, no more an outlet for NS boys and so we lose our footballers. Yes team sports seem to get the short end of the straw as I suppose logistically it is harder to accommodate a team vs an individual and whilst I also support the concept of NS in general, I still feel exceptions are needed to be made for talented sportsmen. After all, it's about deferment and not exemption from NS. We all have our opinions on how to handle this cos I'm more in favour of pushing the sportsman's talents to see how far he can go and then serve NS and not the other way round. I dare say Fandi's 2 sons have lost valuable time and are now behind their peers in terms of development esp Ihksan who in my opinion is the more talented of the 2 and being a striker, exposure to a fully professional league and higher standard of play would enable him to hone his skills earlier, not to mention the mindset, diet etc. Just my 2 cents.......

    Good to hear another up and coming local sportsman esp so in TT as we had so many imported players previously. Whilst I'm not against imported players per se, it would have been better if we had a better mix with local born as well but TT never seemed to be able to achieve this till recently so it's good to hear the men's team is now almost all local born which was the intention when the imports were first introduced ie to improve the standard of the local borns. At the risk of being branded as a broken record, alas I fear NS would once again put paid to Koen's hopes of progressing as he will likely regress during his 1.5+yrs stint. Sorry to be the one pouring cold water on an otherwise good news thread

    Is Singapore General Election Round The Corners ?

    They can't let the gantry be in upright position cos otherwise, some who have parked overnight or worse still over a few days will then leave for free without paying. So it's down for a reason.

    Anglo Indian at Shenton Way. I’ve posted this before but coincidentally went yesterday n heard this stall got into the Michelin Bib Gourmand list for 2019. Butter Chicken is to die for👍😋 Fish Masala n the Chicken Briyani are also delicious plus the usual Garlic Naan n Chicken Tikka. Great meal👏👏
  13. Yes they play round robin which means 8 games in total for this round. Top place team and 4 best runners up from the 8 groups will go into the final 3rd round and be split into 2 groups of 6 each. After which, top 2 from each group qualifies for Qatar 2022 and the 2 3rd place teams play off with winner playing another confederation winner for a place in Qatar. So long qualification ahead! It would be an achievement to qualify for the next round and thereby qualify for our first ever Asian Cup at the same time.

    Think he played last night but not the match at the weekend. England got a lot of options at RB, TAA, Walker, Trippier so whoever in form will get the slot.
  15. I had mentioned before that one ingredient which is vital to any sportsman is hunger ie the desire to excel and for these Palestinians like many impoverished nations and players have this hunger to get out of poverty by excelling in football and so they are very focused and determined to do well. Of course, skill is the basic ingredient but hard work and hunger certainly propels a sportsman to higher level. Our local sportsmen being brought up in a cosy and comfortable environment sometimes lack this hunger though not all of them. Anyway, I wish our Lions well and hope they can excel firstly at Asean level and then Asian level and if they can achieve this, I would be very satisfied.
