In my last posting I wrote the preamble about the whole issue of Felda which the public is obliviously shunned out from the whole truth and I promised to continue on writing to the best of my knowledge about the comings and goings in Felda.
BUT let me take a brief leave on Felda issue as I am more enthusiastic to write on Najib’s messages in his speeches when they were speaking at the Pekan and yesterday.
In Pekan we expected Najib to give a new lead as how to go on with managing UMNO which is waning day by day in support and the clear corrosion of the party members sense of belonging towards this 22-year old party.
He only touched on the same ancient issues like calling every UMNO member to work as a team and to work hand-in-glove with the leadership.
He quoted example of the football world cup teams which we saw and unexpected to win over the favorites because of their good team work. He had said this in Bagan Datoh last week and he is repeating the same in his own Division yesterday.
He said,"I don't want to see primadonas who only play by themselves and who thrive to score the goals themselves."
BUT is he a good team manager in the first place? A good teamwork should come from a good team manager. How is Najib going to mange a good team with good teamwork if there are still loads of defective player in his team?
How to have good team players when Nazri is still in the forward? How could we have a good teamwork when Nor Mohammad Yaacob is still in the team when he is suspected of ‘selling’ the game for personal wealth and gains?
Why is he still allowing Rais Yatim to be the player when he has no more stamina to initiate a counter attacks against the opposing team? To counter attack the team needs fast player to do it. How can he rely on Rais to counter attack when he is not able to run even to the middle of the field?
He has the expertise of amusing the team manger and that makes him to be the most lasting player in the team. Mohammad Hasan is another player who is in the same league with Rais.
What about our defense? Does Najib really understand what he says? The defense lineup are the MBs. Can Mohammad Hasan defend NS? Most of UMNO divisions in NS and its ordinary members in the state think that he is just a primadona of the state.
So does Rais. In NS team nobody wants to pass the ball to him as he is not capable of returning the passes to other members of the team. He is a loner in the team and wants to score the goal himself. Rais, and Mohammad Hasan can’t even take a short penalty kick. In short all the players in NS are primadonas like what Najib is saying loudly.
NS team are almost certain to loose to the opponent if the team manager for the state is not replaced within these few months to prepare with viable and strong team for the next tournament.
I am too sure that in other states there are only primadonas, just ‘shok sendiri’ and they are hordes of political ‘masturbators’.
What is the reason for these weak players in the team? Normally in any football team the team manager would be blamed and be made accountable. All the team managers of the early favorite’s teams which did not perform have left South Africa for home.
In France the team manager was question by Parliament for their dismal performance in South Africa. Maradona’s fate as the Argentinean team manger is at stake and decision on him will be made known in 2 weeks time.
So does for the England’s team manager who led a failed English team South Africa, Capello. The chances of them being unceremoniously dropped as team managers are almost certain because of their failures to form good teams in the World Cup in South Africa.
Now let us look at our own team. Najib is the team manager. Has Najib succeeded in fielding good players in his team? Right now his national team is impregnated with players who play for the expensive club and they are too used to big money and prizes.
They are not interested in getting a win for the team and the nation. They are just interested in money and glamor and they actually the real primadona in the real sense of its meaning. They want the balls by themselves.
In actuality our team is a lineup of primadonas that Najib mentioned in Pekan.
If Najib is serious to have a good teamwork for the national team he can just choose one of the two options available for him; firstly he should change the players altogether and find those who are capable of playing as a team player. OR he resigns as the team manager as the nation is going to question his capability to lead a good team.
Najib needs all the courage to do either one of those 2 options.
If he chooses to resign as the team manager than he can join people like me who play at the position like many others are capable of; that is to play the ‘right outside’ position.
The ‘right outside’ is very safe position. We will still be in the stadium but the position is about 15 meters away from the playing field. At this position we can shout and yell and it is easier to see where a team goes wrong.
We can shout at the players if they don’t perform and we shall clap our hands and extend them with gratitude and appreciation if they perform by scoring reasonable number of goals and ultimately win the matches.
