WRONG FOR ORGANISERS BANK ON MESSI THEN SAY HE'S NOT COMING

A football fan felt cheated that Messi will not be playing in tonight's match despite repeated assurance that he will turn up. He blamed the organisers for not having integrity and by making use of Messi's star-draw to make money. "Promoting the match using his undisputed star-draw, then belatedly and limply attributing his absence to "personal reasons", without even a cursory attempt at an explanation, displays an alarming lack of integrity and competence, and a blatant disrespect for football fans on the part of the organisers. It has been widely reported that Messi was preparing for his wedding at the end of this month. Surely a responsible organiser would have scrupulously confirmed if he would be part of the game."

WASTING TAXPAYERS MONEY BUILDING FOOTBALL STADIUM

People can benefit with the indoor sports hall and swimming pool, can use the facilities to play sports and keep fit. But football stadium? Apart from the running track, who else uses this? Football in Singapore not like last time, can draw crowds. So the football stadium likely to remain empty, apart from early morning and evenings where people use the track to run. Maybe some school sports day also held there. But other than that, money wasted on building a football field no one likely going to play in every day, and a stadium no one will come and watch football every week.

Why waste money on this? Either do something to increase football popularity in Singapore, or scrap the plan to build a football stadium. A running track will be good enough, no need to spend excessively on taxpayers money.

CRAB IN DA BAG CHECKS UP ON CUSTOMER'S WORKPLACE AFTER GIVEN A BAD REVIEW

Who knew a simple review would blow out of proportion after the management of crab in da bag responded to her complaint by playing the victim and defending themselves with CCTV footage of their customer's experience. But the most low blow was that crab in da bag actually went to find out personal details of the customer and even brought up her workplace and said that they have always supported Citibank promotions and she should not have given them such a shallow review.

S'PORE POLICE OPERATOR HAS NO IDEA WHERE KALLANG WAVE MALL IS

I was trapped in the basement car park along with many other motorists on Saturday, 23 May at around 11am. I called the police for help as there was no solution and the management office not answering to call. When I told the police operator that many of us were trapped in Kallang Wave, she asked if this is a shopping centre. I said, no, it is the sports stadium and she still has no clue what place was that.

The Singapore Sports Hub has vowed to get to the root of the problem facing the National Stadium pitch and fix it, said its chief operating officer Oon Jin Teik. The state of the new National Stadium field was criticised in a strongly-worded statement on Tuesday night, barely an hour after Brazil had beaten Japan 4-0 in an international friendly played on the arena's sandy and patchy surface.

Cracks in Kallang Wave glass ceiling

Engineers have since inspected the skylight and have confirmed the double-laminated glass panel to be structurally safe, with the bottom layer fully intact, added Mr Delavaud. The upper layer within the glass panel will be replaced by next week. "It is suspected that the upper layer in this one glass panel inherited material impurities during the toughening process," he said. "Moving forward, Sports Hub will continue to conduct regular checks to all glass panels in the skylight for any irregularities."

Sport Singapore backs S'pore-M'sia football match delay

Announced in February as the first football match to take place at the new National Stadium, the game was expected to attract a capacity crowd. Mr Lim said having large crowds in the new facility could raise operational concerns. He also said the systems at the SportsHub needed to be run through less complex events to avoid potential problems.
