Terjumpa dalam akhbar lama.

Just look at the photo, think a while, put available prameters together, assimilate, digest, synthesize and please dont make any judgement and say it too loud. Keep it to yourself through the layers of history. The followings are just extracts as i say terjumpa dalam akhbar lama. and as in chess; traps, threats, gambits, offers, are just preludes to the end game.

Sultan Says Anyone Can Have Go At Leading FAM
CAMERON HIGHLANDS, July 23 (Bernama) -- The Football Association of Malaysia (FAM) practises democracy and anyone who wishes to do so can vote the present management out at the next annual general meeting (AGM) next year, FAM president Sultan Ahmad Shah said Sunday.

The Sabah Member of Parliament for Kalabakan, Datuk Abdul Ghapur Salleh, had described the ranking fall as shameful for the country.

He suggested that the leadership of the FAM be handed over to the management of the MyTeam football team so that improvements could be made to Malaysian football.

"Perhaps everyone wants to have a go at it because FAM announced that it is financially stable and has an allocation for the development of children's football in the country.
"It doesn't bother me, FAM is not mine. It belongs to the association," he said.

Wrangling over rankings a waste of time

....While we can understand why the 146th ranking drew the wrath of Kalabakan Member of Parliament Datuk Abdul Ghapur Salleh, and why he even called for the resignation of the council. His suggestion, however, for the leadership of the FAM to be replaced by the management of MyTeam namely Khairy Jamaluddin and Jason Lo, bordered on insanity.

As for that response from Larut MP Raja Datuk Ahmad Zainuddin Raja Omar, who is also a FAM vice president, to offer citizenships to foreigners who are “highly talented”, why stop at just players? Why don’t we extend that privilege to foreigners who are “highly talented” administrators as well, especially since we all know that FAM’s administrators are certainly not of world-class standard either.

ANALYSIS - Malaysia's Mahathir zeroes in on PM's weakness
KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Former Malaysian premier Mahathir Mohamad is a political street-fighter with a score to settle with his handpicked successor, and he is about to punch where it can hurt most.
Mahathir, burning with a sense of betrayal, wants to take his attack on Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to the main ruling party, the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), the seat of power and the political vehicle for majority ethnic Malays.
"The Malays still look up to Mahathir and I'm afraid this could cause the Malays to split again," said one political analyst who declined to be named

In Batu Pahat, Umno supreme council member Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz
said Khairy had been waiting for the right opportunity to respond to the personal allegations made against him by Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.
“When Tun first blasted Umno, Khairy called me. I advised him to stay cool and wait for a good opportunity to reply,” he said after opening the Parit Sulong Umno Youth delegates’ conference.

Tan Sri Rahim Tamby Chik
In Tapah, Umno supreme council member Tan Sri Rahim Tamby Chik said Khairy should only respond if there was evidence.
