To be or not to be, that is the question, to be a solo kid or for the country?

Recently a news article about a footballer who has singapore citizenship, a google search I found a 20 page forum talking about it.

Some comments are like, Davis part 2, interesting as it seems but it is the same outcome, a person who decides to follow his dreams.

The funny thing is that some people are talking about his case to be a case by case basis. Some are saying that he should be dealt with harshly.

What should be done is that he is not the next son heung-min, nobody is above the law. Son heung-min by a similar age would be very talented. Many more points can be talking point, if you are detailed enough, that is for the keyboard warriors or trolls to dig.

We are an island state, we are not Korea. One very important point, you choose your path, you must pay the price. 

It is highly unlikely we are able to accommodate a son heung-min, a Joseph schooling has brought us glory, he is a miracle. Just like are we able to get a asian game gold or even sea games gold, I have written about this before, the answer is clear.

A thing about Joseph, his parents has put in lots of effort, money, time, which normal parents might never even able to come close too with, his parents are extraordinary. With football, you have only one shot.

This scenario might be occuring more often that people realise, because of globalisation but key thing is that Singapore football is not improving and staying the same. 

Anyway other countries in south east Asia will also experience some tough times, Myanmar is also having a hard time, I just hope football in this region will be able to go the world cup, males that is, at least the good news is that the management of all countries are able to come a understanding and align our sports with the olympic selection, that is good news.

In the end, football is a sport but also a business, that should be known to everyone by now, you are at the mercy of the owner or money, never it is going back to the original state, stay safe and take care of your health, that is key.

News or no news

In Singapore sports, there have been many news to read up, but it is always up to the sport itself to decide good or bad.

What is important for me is that the sport has progress into a better shape compared to before, change can only be achieve through competition.

In Singapore perhaps where that point is lacking, not many people are stepping up, many have spoken up but rarely any action is taken, I have said it many times.

Personally, maybe I try to pickup a new sport or activity and see for myself, that is a good direction.

I wish all readers a great day ahead.

Hidilyn Diaz won gold in the Olympics

Hidilyn Diaz that is a name you should know now, she won gold for her country. 

The funny thing is that she is a weightlifter from the Philippines. 

Singapore used to have weightlifting medals but the man is long forgotten, mister tan howe liang.

I still or must have written about the boxers from the Philippines, I still remember one boxer training under the sun with rain but with walls around him but no roof.

That is why they achieve greatness and gold, singapore is unlikely to have that spirit, we can only depend on Joseph schooling for medals.

Sometimes I wonder, no need for who what where when why, but are Singaporeans lacking spirit, that might be just the answer.
