SELANGOR BRINGING THOUSANDS OF THEIR FANS FOR FOOTBALL CLASH HERE

Seems like the Selangor football association has booked 115 tour coaches to bring in their fans to Singapore's National Stadium for the Sultan of Selangor Cup, which is happening on the 6th of May. In fact, it was also reported that 800 Selangor football fans queued at the Selangor immigration department just to have a new passport for this game.

We should expect a crowd of Selangor football fans numbering in their thousands for this football match. Brings back fond memories of the Malaysia Cup days back in the 90s, where the rivalry between Selangor and Singapore was strong. They always bring thousands of their fans here, but always outnumbered by the Kallang crowd. At the end of the day, Singapore always win at the stadium.

TAMPINES ROVERS BEAT SELANGOR 1-0, ADVANCES TO ROUND OF 16 FOR AFC CUP

Needing a win to progress to the Round of 16 of the AFC Cup for the first time since 2011, a feat last accomplished by an S.League club in 2012 via Home United, the Stags rose to the occasion in front of 11,875 to beat Selangor 1-0 in their final Group E match.

It was also the perfect retort to Selangor coach Zainal Abidin, who had claimed in the pre-match press conference that "the (standard of the) Malaysian league is higher than here (Singapore)."

As the Malaysia Cup holders returned home with their tails between their legs, with some of their 200 travelling fans heckling their team after the final whistle, Tampines started dreaming of bigger things to come in Asia's second-tier club competition.

As Group E runners-up, they will next take on Group G winners Mohun Bagan in Kolkata. The Indian side had earlier beaten Tampines 3-1 in the AFC Champions League qualifiers.

4 NEW TERRORIST GROUPS DISCOVERED OPERATING IN MALAYSIA

The Malaysian security authorities have identified four new terror groups bent on creating a "super" Islamic caliphate to rule parts of South-east Asia, including secular Singapore. The four organisations, identified only by their acronyms BKAW, BAJ, Dimzia and ADI, are believed to be operating from states such as Selangor and Perak. The four outfits currently operate independently of one another but sources said they subscribe to the same "salafi" Jihadi ideology, similar to extremist groups Al-Qaeda and the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS). ISIS, also known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, has been gaining swathes of territory in northern and western Iraq in its quest to set up a mediaeval-style Islamic caliphate.
