After the disastrous SEA Games, where Singapore Under-23 was not only knocked out at the group stage but humiliated as many of the opponents had brought their second team yet outplayed us, we are seeing blames being passed on to each other and no faults attached to themselves.
Frankly if you asked me, which nobody does, nobody should escaped the blame but the leader should always bear the most.
Yet we know the worthless one, Zainudin Nordin, is untouchable as we see blame passed onto everybody other than the Bishan-Toa Poyah Member of Parliament (MP).
Afterall he has to approve the decisions make and he cannot tell he has no knowledge of the implications of his decisions.
Remember, almost two years ago when he had given another term as Football Association of Singapore (FAS) President, the government-backed Singapore Press Holdings (SPH) media told us it was because of his 'extraordinary leadership skill' which he wanted to pass down as well as the fact we needed it for the SEA Games preparation.
Unshockingly the following two years, we have not seem any 'extraordinary leadership skill', only a half-naked body.
It was no secret he was a disaster for singapore football during the first two terms as FAS president so why did the ministry of culture, community and Youth (MCCY) give him another term!
The SPH media can publish all these stories now but come September when it time for the FAS annual general meeting (AGM) will they stand in line and tell us, his '7 years of leadership was a success' like they are expected to do.
Indeed if he was really a leader then our Prime Minister (PM) would given him more roles in the government where many of the ministers have to take on multiple roles as their 'talents' are stretched thin for he is a four-term MP and 'have all the experience, knowledge and skills'.
But he is nowhere near any leadership roles in the Singapore government and that tell us, how qualified our PM Lee really judged him.
He is bottom-of-the-barrel MP wilkleak tell us of.
Now Singapore football are suffering thanks to the fact MCCY would rather appoint a bottom-of-the-barrel MP than have an outsider control an organization prized by the government for it propaganda purposes.
Tell me how this is our own good and do not tell us this 7 years, Singapore football have 'progressed under his extraordinary leadership' when he has shown us none.
That why come September, do not acclaim 'he is a great leader like two years back'.
