OPEN LETTER TO JOSEPH SCHOOLING – WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?

I see all the people who are suddenly responsible for your gold medal. I feel sorry because people who would not have given you the time of day are now rushing to ride on the coat tails of your victory. A wise person once said... "if you're absent during my struggle, don't expect to be present during my success." We were absent during your struggles. And yet, we are present during your spoils.

WHEN IT COMES TO SUCCESS, GIVE CREDIT WHERE IT IS DUE

I don't want anyone to take what I am saying as ANY kind of political statement - because it absolutely is not. But it IS a message about management. When it comes to success, give credit where credit is due. And if you happened to have played a part in it, you certainly deserve some recognition. But never claim more credit than is due to you.

SG HAS 3 PEOPLE TO THANK FOR SMASHING NOTIONS THAT SPOREANS CANNOT WIN GOLD AT OLYMPICS

Singapore really has only 3 people to thank for smashing all notions that we cannot win gold at the Olympics, set an Olympic record and provide empowerment to our children and their children. We have to thank them and them alone also for teaching us that if you want something bad enough then with sacrifice, family support, unyielding commitment and unwavering belief in the goal, then nothing and no one can stand in the way of that glory. Three people and three people alone. They are standing in this picture framed in the glory that should be theirs and theirs alone. Always remember that.

HOUGANG UNITED FELLED BY ALBIREX NIIGATA AFTER LACKLUSTER SECOND HALF

Albirex coach Naruki Naruo said: "We knew it was going to be difficult and they made it difficult for us in the first half because they defended well and they also got the first goal. "But in the second half, I told the players to be more relaxed and calm with the ball and I asked the central midfielders to move the ball wide so that we could get crosses in for our strikers and our second half performance was much better and we managed to score the important goals and get the three points." Hougang coach, K Balagumaran, on the other hand, was left scratching his head as to when and how his team will collect the full three points, even if they are still in the top half and fourth on 19 points. He said: "It's painful. We had a gameplan coming into the match and I think we did well in the first half. We defended well and scored the first goal and I thought we could sustain the lead.

Can Tampines Rovers out together a run of wins to pip Albirex Niigata to the S.League title? On such free-scoring form, don't bet against it. With rookie S.League coach Akbar Nawas at the helm, and a gungho attitude to boot, there seems to be a new lease of life about the Stags after his predecessor V Sundramoorthy left the post to become national football coach. Throwing caution to the wind, Tampines have now scored 10 goals in just two games under Akbar. After posting a 4-3 win over defending champions Brunei DPMM FC last week, the Stags thrashed Garena Young Lions 6-1 at Jurong West last night.
