MU, Visit Malaysia 2007 & 50 Years Independence

I don’t get it. What ManYoo (MU aka Manchester United) Asian Tour has to do with Visit Malaysia 2007 and Malaysia’s 50 years of independence? So Asian Football Confederation (AFC) do not sanction the tour and asking Asian countries to give more supports and coverages for Asian Cup.

Malaysian football bosses last year signed an agreement not to promote other matches during the Asian Cup, the region’s premier football tournament. AFC feel that the tour will hurt the tournament, steal the fans away from Asian Cup.

And our Sport Minister and few big shot guys are hoping AFC will reconsider the decision, but to relate it with Visit Malaysia 2007 and 50 years of independence??? Just be honest lah, just say that people do not watch Asian football because it is boring, not entertaining. (except for Japan and Korea- IMHO).

The truth is if Asian football is good, people definitely will watch, no reason not to. Even if AFC managed to cancel the tour,  not necessary the fans watch Asian Cup games. The fans can’t be forced into the stadiums unless the quality of play is good, worth to watch. Man, I watched local football that day, Terengganu vs Perlis I think.. damn insulting to watch that kind of play for any self confessed football fan…

Back to the Visit Malaysia 2007 thing, so people visit Malaysia to watch ManYoo??? 😀 How about local attractions? What about promoting the so called Malaysia’s unique cultural identities?? ManYoo’s match had been planned as part of the celebrations to mark 50 years of Malaysian independence????? Ha ha ha! Sungguh dalam irony nya… Isk isk isk..

Yet FAM is calling Malaysian to support local football, blaming media for giving more coverage on EPL and complains why in Malaysia everyone seems to support football teams other than local teams 😀 Kah! kah! kah!

    zewt : they should blame themselves for the lack of publicity. Imagine if any foreign club – Manchester United, Arsenal, Brazil etc. will come to Malaysia for exhibition match, fuyoh you can see the publicity everywhere!! So?? And then blame the fans for not supporting local football :?)

    cibol : korean football boleh lah.. but masih lagi cikai la. just look at the number of goals scored in a game. or maybe they ‘play’ to much, goals are unneccesary 😛

    Well, ya la .. tak payah banding jauh. I think singapore league far better than malaysian league .. not really far la. But J-League and Chinese Super League, they have their class. Urawa Reds, Dalian Shide and Shanghai Shenhua quite okay. and they exist much more later than M-League. Ponder ponder
