    Any specific date Li is leaving?

    Must be quite a blow for Malaysia, especially for LCW and WMC. I thought I saw somebody else giving tips to WMC during the MO intervals, certainly not Li.

    I wonder whether LCW's recent loss in form has anything to do with this? :(

    Will Misbun be taking over?

    Hmm, interesting..

    ...perhaps the Korean National team is looking for a coach to train their younger/junior players.;)
    Speaking of which, today, for some unknown reason(s), i watched the young ParkSungHwan play for the first time on tv. The match was against LeeChongWei in the Semifinal of last yr's ABC. Eventhough PSH lost, my initial observation of him after watching 2 sets of the match, i thought he definitely has the talent. He has some upside & downside. For a MS player, i noticed PSH has the height to be a badminton player and also still young. I noticed his smashes are also quite steep and strong. His backhand is quite strong also. His downside is, IMO, he's still quite raw and "unpolished".
    If i recall, he beat LinDan in the recently concluded MO. But then lost in the next round. But being very young and still has plenty of chances in the future, hopefully we can see his(as well as other MS players) development blossom with the arrival of LiMao. ;) :cool:

    Li Mao's unconfirmed departure is a blessing in disguise.Prior to his arrival,Chong Wei was under Misbun's care.And he was a rising star.Generally,many think Misbun as not a successful coach.Now and then,one reads of harsh criticism of Misbun's capabilities as a coach.If he is not good,why are there so many players under his guidance who are among the top players of the world.To name a few,Roslin,Hafiz,Chonng Wei& KBH.When KBH was training with him,his best achievement was, as the runner-up in the ABC championship.Misbun is a taskmaster.Malaysian players are too pampered.They need STRICT DISCIPLINE to succeed.There is no two ways about it.Can anybody just become an All England Champion.Ask Hafiz who is responsible for his title.Malaysians forget easily.BAM has a gem in its own backyard.Use it before it gets rusty.

    Yes, I think to most outsiders, Li Mao appears to be the man behind Malaysia's recent singles successes. It is perhaps timely to clarify the case now.

    Misbun's position was not helped by the changes that arose when Li Mao took over some of Misbun's charges, the most notable of whom was LCW, and he remained in charge of only Hafiz and Roslin. When Roslin was undecided about his own career and decided to opt out of the National Team towards the later part (hope I'm correct), Misbun's position remained more precarious as Hafiz did not show much progress and hardly shine in the international tournaments. On ther other hand, LCW achieved creditable success until recently.

    At the beginning of this year, BAM made some changes to utilize more of Misbun's experience. It looks likely that BAM will entrust Misbun with more responsibilities unless they decide to engage another foreign coach to replace Li Mao for the National Team's men's singles.

    News of a revamp should be forthcoming soon.

    Sorry I am little confused. I thought LCW has already achieved some successes when he was still under Misbun. The arrival of LM was expected to bring him to a new height, hence Misbun should be given due credit on the development of LCW to where he is today.

    Can anyone who is more familiar with BAM draw up a time line showing the milestones of LCW against the arrival of LM so that we can have a good overview of LCW's succeses before and after LM took over?

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, life goes on!

    Maybe BAM should dig deep into their pockets and hire the legendary managers like Mourinho & Ferguson. :D

    i wonder what BAM were paying LM compared to what the Koreans are paying, possibly a lot less. unless he's just fed up with MAS MS, like KBH for instance!
    :D
