Gone are the days when Sarawak football fans used to travel from as far as Lawas, Limbang, Miri, Bintulu, Sibu, Sri Aman and Lundu just for one common purpose – to support the Reds Nyap Sayot team. These fans even spend to watch Sarawak play away games in West Malaysia.
Today, Sarawak is best known for its empty and next-to-nothing stadium. It was a shame to watch the roller on the field during the last Youth World Cup.
And, on today’s BP Sports article, the Vice President of the Football Association of Sarawak (FAS) even threathen to resign en bloc in respond to Datuk Mawan’s call to quit last Monday. By all means, Mr. Paruwadi, please do it fast! Maybe a new team should take over the management of the Sarawak football team. And, Datuk Mawan, in my opinion do not need or deserve to be the President of FAS even.. But, there is nothing wrong with him to call for those benchwarmers to quit..
FInally, any Sarawak football fan at my age will love and support any move to build a new management team. We love to be back banging the drums and enjoying a game of great football.. at least we could see someone from our division have the chance to play for Sarawak.
The new team must stand up for what they believe in and not being remotely controlled from the grandstand during games.
