me too....very sleepy now...can't wait to see match between CHN vs MAS...
hope that malaysia can win again china!!! yeah!!!
nothing is impossible by beating CHN......ok guys, time to go to sleep...bye!
Malaysia might win in MS and MD. However, the stars are not aligned for Malaysia to win in XD, WS, or WD. Now, if someone can bribe the Chinese chef to add something bad into the food so that the entire team gets sick ...
Realistically, MAS must have THA beat ENG to stand a chance to qualify for the SF.
If THA beats ENG 3-2 and CHN beats MAS 4-1, final standing will look like this:
CHN W3 L0 GF14 GA1 6 pts
MAS W1 L2 GF6 GA9 4 pts
ENG W1 L2 GF5 GA10 4 pts
THA W1 L2 GF5 GA10 4 pts
In this case, MAS qualifies directly to the SF on superior differential.
While praying for a Thai win, it's important for MAS to pick up at least one point for that all important game differential if it comes down to it. If MAS loses 5-0, then all 3 will have the same differential and total games/points will come into the equation. If THA should win 4-1 (and MAS lose 1-4), their differential will be the same as MAS' while eliminating ENG on inferior game differential. Then the countback will be between THA and MAS.
But... I still think ENG will beat THA and all this will be irrelevant.
THA can only realistically win in MS, WS and XD, the other 2 ties should comfortably go ENG's way.
MAS will have to field WCH to play XD with WPT.Whether they have trained for it does not matter. If MAS use the XD MJ,it's a sure loss (although they have played well considering their inexperience.THU is not the time to give them exposure.) MAS MS, MD and XD. Psych yourself up to upset CHN on THU. Don't count on THA or ENG to decide your fate.Nothing's over unless you decide it's over. You have the skills and mind to deliver.
Unless ENG lost to THA, AND MAS beat CHN by 5:0, ENG still have the tie breaker either way. The only way that MAS takes #2 is to beat CHN (very hard) and ENG lose to THA, or MAS beats CHN in a big way (even harder) and ENG got blown out by THA (very hard).
Also, even if THA finish last in the group A, I think they still can be in Div 1, as they should be able to beat HKG in MS, MD, XD and even WD.
Aiyah, I think the best is for MAS to try and nick a point or two (MS and MD) from CHN and hope that THA upset ENG 3-2. If THA wins, the points shud come from MS, WS, and XD. The MD and WD looks likely to go to ENG based on current form.
How'd you figure that?
I think my explanation is correct (see 3 posts before yours) based on responses provided by other members to my question on tiebreakers.
madbad, go to the 2007 Sudirman Cup – Day 3 - Wednesday 2007 to see why england ranked before m'sia since if compare matches, games and points, is m'sia better....
Any idea how the count back works?
Is it only between the teams involved in the tie, or all the teams in the group?
E is before M is before T?
No it is the other way --- Terrible, Mediocre, Excellent
Why WMC lost to Salakjit Ponsana?
4-1 should have been much better.
Anyway, I agreed to field WCH/WPT in XD against CHN. It stands a better chance and hope for an upset while praying for ENG to lose to THA.
but look at the group B...
D is before I
even H is before I
if it is because of alphabetical order, then it should be like this
I was only joking
I believe LCW will try his best to beat LD on Thursday.
You can't say LCW disappoints us if he loses to LD. It's simply because LD is a more established player and world number 1. But LCW should not use this as excuse if he loses.
WMC losing SP is what I call disappointment.
