MyTeam vs Malaysia Under 20’s – The Finale at Bukit Jalil

So last week Mack called me up for this game as he had some invites, it was the Malaysian U20 team as the ‘real’ one is in Singapore.

Match Invite

So we headed to Bulldog first for some bevvies, yeah! Then off to Bukit Jalil for the match, 8.45pm kick off.

There was a horrible Jam all the way..I think there was some Akademi Fantasia thing at Astro too, so it was double bad.

Jam

Due to the horrible jam and the shitty parking, invite only parking in section C? Which was closed…so we made a complete round and (double) parked in B because they decided to open it again (after taking a piss at the side of the road with a policeman watching us).

GOOD ORGANISATION.

When we got there it was already 1-0 to MyTeam, I think it was about 5 minutes before we got in as we heard a massive eruption of noise on our way towards the entrance.

The stadium was fairly well populated, I’d say 70% full at an estimate (50,000 apparently).

Bukit Jalil

Shortly after we got there, there was a second yellow card and a sending off (there was a fight in the first half I heard and a straight red for one of the MyTeam players I think).

Red Card

After the MyTeam goal it got pretty violent, the Malaysian team were chopping down the MyTeam players like they were trees, studs in the air boys, 2 feet forward..

Just next to us was the VIP booth and Pak Lah himself (with Kali I think).

VIP Booth

The normal ticket looked like this, for the suckers that paid.

Myteam vs Malaysia Ticket

There was some random half-time band, I have no idea who they were.

Half Time Band

The Malaysian team scored a shitty equaliser to come even at 1-1, the MyTeam goal keeper was sleeping on his line, hello, cover your inside post, or get a defender to do it, don’t just stand there like a fucking retard.

There was some good midfield play, defence and attack was a little scrappy on both ends (scrapper on the MyTeam end as the game wore on).

Action

There was a little too much Italian style football, without any of the actual football skill (just the horrible diving and terrible theatrics).

Theatrics

There was someone being stretchered off every 45 seconds.

The Malaysian team totally started outplaying the MyTeam squad after about 70 minutes tho, the amatuers legs were gone, you could see the professional fitness shining through.

I have to say though, the difference in teamwork wasn’t much, they both greatly lacked any, and on the whole as individual skills go (apart from the shit poor keeper), MyTeam had better ball control.

The second Malaysian goal was a very well struck ball, I can’t take that away from them, good goal, it would have taken a skillful keeper to stop it (Oliver Kahn?).

Game Over

That put Malaysia ahead 2-1, the crowd didn’t appreciate that too much, the majority seeming to support the upstarts MyTeam.

There was a heartstopped in the 92nd minute when one of the MyTeam lads hit the cross bar in a brave push, great dribbling, then boo, woodwork.

Then game over and off home it was, Shebbys boys did well to say the final team had only played together for less than 2 weeks, and had a total of less than a months fitness training.

As Tigerjoe said, if Malaysia were bad, MyTeam were worse. I have to say even making that comparison is an embarassment to any national team, it shouldn’t even be an issue.

Enjoyable evening all the same.

    The farcical game only reaffirms the fact that Malaysian football is in a deplorable state! What a joke!

    Watched the game on the telly and noticed in the early part of the match that each time myteam had the ball the ns would cheer or was it jeers i heard? lol

    Anyways, you could tell myteam were nervous and the lack of team play was very apparent. But that said, i was bloody surprised to see the first goal. I thought it was a mis-hit cross but on the replay i was wrong. Cheeky lobe over the keeper.

    But like you said Tiger, myteam have only been training for a few weeks to compare them to the National team would be unfair. It’s like comparing raw rubber and a tyre.

    In any event. I personally think the national team sucked man. Seriously, not being unpatriotic but to only get their goals through dead ball situations says it all. (yes a goal is still a goal) but come on!

    Still far far farr to go for msian football man. But it’s encouraging.

    Thanks for the link! 😀

    MyTeam keeper a bit kayu when the time were not right for him to be like that. Other than that, he seems “ok” la.

    MyTeam players didn’t take the tongkat ali during halftime, sigh.

    The band playing during the half time break was Gerhana Ska Cinta. Which team were you rooting for? I have no interest in watching this MyTeam vs National Team but when some FAM bigshot gave a sarcastic remark about MyTeam (He said MyTeam is like “mee segera” (instant noodle), so there’s no point for the senior national team to play against such an amateurish “instant” team. All hell break loose after that stupid comment. As if the Malaysian National Team is some world class team. Remember when Malaysia lost to Laos asshole? Anyway, i was rooting for MyTeam as you’ve already suspected. They didn’t win, but they scored first. HAH! lol

    Oliver Kahn is old school already. Petr Cech is the best goalie now. Or among the best la..

    I was rooting for Gerhana Ska Cinta.

    i think the real suckers are those who actually went to see the game in the stadium, with all the traffic jam and bad organisation, then seeing terrible football 🙂

    it was so bad that it was not even worth watching on TV; Akademi Fantasia on the other channel seemed a much better choice.

    Would be cool if some of those MyTeam plays were absorbed into the national team. We desperately need some good and new talent on the field. Syabas MyTeam!
