I hope Kenny Dalglish’s boys cane the home team.
Unpatriotic you may call me. But there is no reason for me to support the team.
While purportedly representing MALAYSIAN football, they bear the name Harimau MALAYA.
As far as I know, Malaya ceased to exist in 1963 with the formation of MALAYSIA.
Why in heaven’s name would you give a name to a team which EXCLUDES Sarawak and Sabah?
Why couldn’t they have called it Harimau Malaysia???
As sad as it is, I don’t think anyone involved in the decision to name the team Harimau MALAYA even gave a second thought to the feelings of Malaysians, other than those from MALAYA of course.
As a Sarawakian, or a Sabahan, why should I support a team which does NOT show any respect, or support, for me as a Malaysian?
At least when I scream my lungs out for Liverpool, at least I know I will never walk alone …
