Thomas Cup Failure - Bad Decision and Blunders by BAM...

bad injury to Lee Chong Wei..
Now that the Thomas Cup is over, it's time for us to analyse the mistakes and blunders made by the Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM). Point form:
1.   Putting Lee Chong Wei as the 1st singles was the biggest mistake!
Why?
Simple....
(i) Lee Chong Wei was not 100% fully fit. He had shoulder injury a few months back and it was a big risk to make him play in the Thomas Cup campaign. Moreover, the Olympics is just round the corner - so, it's better for him to skip the Thomas Cup. BAM should not have played him...
That's blunder number 1 ....
(ii) At the present set-up of the team, the 2nd and 3rd singles are nowhere to give Malaysia any point. So does the 2nd doubles. The only point (apart from Lee Chong Wei) Malaysia could gain is through the 1st double (Koo Kean Keat/Tan Boon Heong). That doesn't guarantee Malaysia to win the match (best of 5 games).
That's blunder number 2....

2.   Why didn't BAM send a younger team to the Thomas Cup?
Why?
What's wrong with the back-up squad?
Not enough exposure?
Why didn't BAM expose them, in the 1st place?
Blunder number 3...

3.   BAM do not trust the fresh youngters?
I'll list down these names and their previous success:
 Zulfadli Zulkifli
a.   Zulfadli Zulkifli - a young, confident player with great talent. He has won the Asian and World Junior titles. Are you blind or deaf, BAM? Or both??
What sort of player do you want, other than what this player has? He was the world junior singles champion !!! I repeat - WORLD Junior Singles Champion !!!
Oh.., I know why.. He is trained by his father at KLRC and not BAM...
So, BAM don't want winners.. Is that it? Stupid!!!
Blunder number 4....
 Iskandar Zulkarnain
b.   Iskandar Zulkarnain Zainuddin - a former Asian juniors runner-up. He has the height and power in attack. Of course, he lacks exposure - BAM didn't send him to world class tournaments..
Blunder number 5...
Misbun Ramdan
c.   Misbun Ramdan Misbun - possesses good attacking skills. He is tall, just like his father - Misbun Sidek.
Very talented player and can be the next world champion if politics are set aside... (if you know what I mean).
Blunder number 6...
 Chooi Kah Ming/Ow Yao Han
d.   Chooi Kah Ming/Ow Yao Han - the former 2009 world junior champions. This pair have immense talent and potential. A very good combination.. But, of course - left out by BAM and not given exposure...
That's blunder number 7....

4.   Politics again in BAM...
Coaches cannot stay long in BAM.. Why?
Somethings not correct in BAM... What? The stupid officials?
I don't know... ask BAM !!!!

Now that Lee Chong Wei is down injured, BAM can say bye-bye to the Olympics gold.. Bye-bye....
Lee Chong Wei can heal in time for the Olympics, but he won't be 100% fit to win the gold... Just mark my words... Bye-bye Olympics...

Have a nice day, badminton lovers..., Malaysian sports lovers...
