Malaysian Hockey Federation never ceases to amaze me. For how can one explain their decision to enter a team for the South East Asian Cup which will be held from September 29 to October 4th in Bangkok.

This tournament, initiated by AHF is a replacement for the SEA Games where hockey is not contested this year, will see Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand contesting in the men's event while in the women's event Thailand will put up two teams and face Malaysia and Singapore.

AHF is still trying to get Brunei to participate and if that happens then the men's competition will be expended to five teams. And AHF had a tough time getting Malaysia to confirm its entry according to AHF Secretary General Tan Sri P. Alagendra, who said as of last Sunday MHF had not entered a team yet.

So coming back to MHF, just which team is participating, who is the coach, and we have 27 days, not taking into account the Hari Raya holidays, the fasting month.

So much for professionalism Nur Azmi Ahmad as you spend too much time hitting out at others then looking into the administration of MHF.
