The show is ok lah, a bit hyped. But very amateurish. Shebby try to cut it out as a coach but I think he fail lah...haha. But this question crossed my mind: What if MyTeam does beat the National team? What then? This will surely damage the National sport beyond repair...
I saw yesterday program at TV3 My team played against Kedah (don't know where and when) with quite a huge crowd in the stadium. Myteam lossed 0-3. All goals were scored in the first half.

then like this what for..this will bring down the morale of the My Team... they were looking forward to play against the national team....and they work so hard for this...
if they are scared, then ask them to quit playing football and go back to do other things. what the heck is happening to malaysian football
During the 80's, Korea and Japan even dare not to play against our national team...as we are known as the trashing boys...but now we are known as the whipping boys..
If want to have back their pride, play against My Team...
As I said...it might as well be just a rumors…no confirmation yet…they would only announce a day or two before the game…so no one would know about it?!....
But...until we hear something, we should not jump the gun...shooting them down...probably its my mistake...shouldnt have opened my mouth (or rather my fingers?!
aiya..veejay...this is common already...I have lost my faith in malaysian football already..., i will put my money on My Team to win the game.
i will be going to the stadium next weekend to support My Team which ever team they play against...
already advertise that My Team will play against the National team but what age category ??
At the time, the national team will give excuses that they wont play..
and now..me looking forward to tonight....
MyTeam dont have to beat Malaysia...Malaysia have to beat MyTeam...if Malaysia loose, something wrong with Malaysian team
there is always something wrong with the Malaysian Team no matter they beat or loose to My Team

I would suggest for MyTeam to carry on more seasons down the road and play with National teams and foreign clubs in the region and beyond. And put the FAM to shame once and for all and go for a major revamp for the good of Malaysia's National sport.
I'm a big fan of SHEBBY SINGH... he is doing this 'for the love of the game'. He is doing this without condition. If people question his qualification (if he has a coaching license), i can only say, question your own qualificaion.
A piece of paper don't mean anything to this world. This man got heart and he is contributing to the development of football in malaysia.
How many of you guys can say that? Look at the daily news condemning those medical doctors working overseas...
SHEBBY walks the talk and he is very knowledgeable.
Secondly, i've been following MYTEAM very closely. You can view all their episod here:-
Like any team event. People need to train together for long period of time to understand each other.. 1 month is hardly enough time to gel a team. what more to be super fit to play national team?
Fail or success, i totally support MyTeam.... And i hope they do this on a yearly basis
Yes, I too hope they succeed in the hope that some good can come out frm this episode. If the Malaysian sports administrators do ever learn frm their mistakes that is...

FOUR of Malaysia’s Under-20 players have caught the eye of Manchester United youth manager Brian McClair, and if the latter follows up on his praises, the four will receive trials with the English giants.
The Malaysians surprised United’s Academy team on Wednesday, handing them a 4-1 thrashing at the club’s Carrington training facility, in a match that had McClair heaping praises on K. Rajagopal’s charges.
A perfect record of three wins out of three, with a total of nine goals scored and just one conceded means confidence is oozing in Rajagopal’s team.
The squad ended a 20-day training cum playing stint in Manchester with a perfect record of three wins.
The stint is part of the squad’s preparations for the Asian Youth Championship in India in October.
According to FAM secretary Datuk Seri Dr Ibrahim Saad, McClair stated that he was particularly impressed with twins Aidil Zafuan and Zaquan Adha Abdul Razak, Khairil Muhymeen Zambri and Amar Rohaida and he even said he would consider giving the four a trial.
In fact, Khairil was voted Man-of-the-Match by the coaches in the team’s 3-0 victory over Salford Academy last Wednesday. The squad’s other match, against the Stoke City Academy last Saturday, ended 2-0 in Malaysia’s favour.
Ibrahim also said the fact that United’s youth squad featured five of their first team players, served to add to the positive impact at the conclusion of the squad’s tour. Stoke City, whose academy side were beaten 2-0 by the under-20 team on Saturday, had also expressed their interest in Aidil and Zaquan.
"I think it should be made clear that the boys weren’t up against just any squad - Manchester United fielded virtually their strongest youth squad, and they were utterly surprised by our boys," said Ibrahim.
The Manchester United squad featured first team players Marcos Neumyr, Sam Hewison, Kieran Lee, Frasier Campbell and James Chester. In fact, Neumayr and Campbell played for their first team side in the testimonial match for former club captain Roy Keane at Old Trafford on Tuesday.
"McClair wasn’t just impressed, he told us he was embarrassed by the result as well as they’d expected to steamroll us. He was particularly impressed with our speed, technical ability and fitness," added Ibrahim.
Rajagopal, on the other hand, chose to play down the results, sticking to his aim, which is the AFC Asian Youth Championships.
"The purpose is still to get the boys as much exposure as possible and build their confidence against bigger, more physical players. Let’s not get too excited and give the boys unnecessary pressure," said Rajagopal.
"Give them room, let’s have some patience and you’ll see the real results in three or four years.
"Right now, the results are secondary. As I’ve always said the aim is the Asian Youth Championships, and that is still our first objective."
The squad heads for Slovakia for a three-match series tomorrow, where they will face two club sides, before taking on the Slovakian under-20 side on May 18.
