Many people says that modern football is all about new playing styles, i.e formations, technical and tactical. Here, i would like to elaborate what it is all about so that you guys understand it correctly, because most of the local coaches and management teams do not really understand it very well, therefore they misleading the players and teams, so i’m not surprise they failed to achieve its goal.   

The term is not actually refers to the playing styles and tactical alone, that is the only output of the combination of efforts, investments, educations and technologies that involved in the world of football developments. Playing styles actually is the art of football, that is why the term of “Samba”, “Total Football” , “Marathon football” and many more has accrued. So same goes to the tactical, technical and formations. “4-4-2, 3-5-2, 4-5-1 and many more, all of those has already exist since in very first of World Cup has organized. 

So, what is actually means of Modern Football? 150 years ago, British have reinvented football (from ancient football) by introducing a new rules and regulations. The result of the new rules is the born of new sport called “MODERN FOOTBALL” ever since. The fragment of this ancient football is also new sport called “RUGBY”. Ever since, the term of modern football has been use until today.
However, the term of modern football has changed for the last 30 years ago due to the rapid development of football. Football still the same but the way of its played has changed a lots after the “efforts” of the governance body of FIFA to modernized the football by involvement of “investments”, “educations” and “technologies”, so here is the new MODERN FOOTBALL that people talk about nowadays.

Without investment, the football will not as what we seen today, there are so many large companies has jumped in to invest in football due to large volume of football followers around of the globe. The facilities, merchandise, advertisements and many more type of investments has returned a billion of dollars to investors.

Estimated 80 % of the professional players in Europe has better academic qualification, this scenario has helped the players to be more comparative, because they are smart and intelligence. When are player equipped with better academic qualification, he will always make a right decision on and off the field. That is the reason why all the top clubs in the world have their own education programs for the players. Talent alone does not guarantee success for players, therefore academic have playing are big part for the players development.

Technology is very significant in any sports nowadays, especially sport science. Healing period has much shorter, supplement foods is more effective, training methods is more comprehensive, football equipment is more and more lighter, football peach is more safer and many more.

Due to the improvement and involvement of the said above, players nowadays get much better mentally, physically, technically and educated. That is the reason why football intensity nowadays is more exciting than before.

To be a good football player needs lots of effort, discipline and education. Football has become a career and business in modern football due to large amount of money can be generated from its activities. Therefore in order to be successful in football career, do take a lots of efforts in football training to gain more skills, technical and tactical ability, very high discipline on and off the field to have a good and long football career and get as high as possible academic qualification, because only a smart footballer can survive and success in this modern football even after playing career is over. SO, THINK ABOUT IT AND DO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION FOR YOUR OWN GOOD!

It has been a month Matunggong FA team has setup, along the way, we have seen very encouraging improvement among the players individually. This is a good sign to our footballers and football teams in the District. Those players will improved his local team when they play in next local league, therefore, our local league will more competitive than before, and i hope it will benefit the Matunggong FA team in future.

I am so proud with newly setup football team management of Matunggong FA, they have made it possible for some thought it impossible before. This is called “eyes opener” to the people of Matunggong that we can do it if we put more effort on it. We was heard so many excuses before how hard to setup this District team, but here we proven it wrong, at this present time, we have senior and junior team. The junior team will take part in next SAGA Sport tournament in PBU level. So we hope them to do better and we sure they will do better as well.

As a coach for the teams, i will do my upmost best to help them to grow as are good players on and off the field and good team players. Matunggong has a lots of talented players who can anytime can play in Malaysian Football League if given proper training, beside players willingness to work hard. I am sure the team management is happy to see this teams progressing well to the right direction. Thanks to the upmost cooperation given by Referee Club of Matunggong all this while, without your support, we might nowhere from where we were before or the same old stories.

To the Matunggong FA’s AJKs, especially to its President..we would like to thank you for your support by recognition the team as an “District Official Team”. Therefore by its recognition, there will be no more doubt arose about the team anymore. However, recognition given itself is not enough to make us strong if it not follow-up by other action to support the team. Because this is our (people of Matunggong) team, not my team, not to the management team. Please support us as you support your own team. By doing so, you will indirectly helping the team and our football development progressing well as planned. Do support us by the action, we do not need your words because action means action. The only action you have available now is to call “MATUNGGONG FA AGM MEETING” as soon as possible. Please listen to the football lover of Matunggong, because they were cried out loud all along for your productive action. 

We have to restructure the FA of Matunggong management in order for us to move forward. I am not saying that you have done nothing positive in the past, but now is the right time that we need new leadership to bring us to next level of direction and level of football of Matunggong. Our Referee Club has moved forward rapidly due to the self restructuration they made last year (i am present in that meeting) 2012. Now everybody saw the vest improvement of our referees quality and quantity. In this scenario, i really wish for FA’s positive move for the sake of Matunggong football. Do let the qualified person to run the FA of Matunggong. Because, we need new IDEAS, new Leader and new DIRECTION with sincere commitment.
