    It's not too difficult to come up with this lineup, is it?

    Yup, agreed with the line up. This should be our 1st team.
    Can we afford to rest some of these players when playing against ENG/THA ??

    Against England, Thailand and China (Indonesia and Korea, too), no matter what XD pair we field, we are bound to lose that point anyway. May as well put KKK where his contribution is more crucial.

    dun mind enlightening me on where KKK's contribution is more/most crucial? he hasn't been doing well in MD. The KKK/TBH did well for a while and won a lot including the All-England but they have dropped in standard. CTF/LWW is a much better pair. Even Mohd Zakry Abdul Laitff and Mohd Fairuzizuan Mohd Tazari are seemingly better than Rexy's 'golden' pair that is being groomed to win the 2008 Olympics.

    KKK/TBH are having a dry spell, and this usually happens when young men experienced "cloud 9" success. But I honestly think the few defeats lately did do them alot of good and they will eventually bounce back, just wait and see. They can be even better than before. Afterall, we have Rexy, and Rexy will not just let them go to waste. Have a little faith, they are still a young pair, they need time to settle in.

    yeah, i don't think we should expose them to 2 events.
    either KKK/TBH for MD or KKK/WPT for XD.
    if KKK is playing XD, then possibly have Zakry/Tazari for MD, they have been performing well lately.

    No, I don't mind enlightening you. KKK's contribution in MD is more crucial.

    Remember that this is a team event. Not usual individuAL events.

    KKK at least had lots of team experience. Thomas Cup 2006 and Asian Games 2006.

    Where as Zakry/Tazari never play team event before. Maybe Malaysia can put them when play against China for experience only. But against Thai Land and England, KKK/TBH still the best bet.

    Mental strength always had a major role in team events.

    If the score is tie 1-1 or even 2-1 not in favor for Malaysia, Zakry/Tanzari probably collapse

    It will be a disaster if we cannot finish top 4, ie. lose to Thailand or England or both.

    A bigger disaster if we get relegated (God forbid).

    Last time we had the excuse of not having world class women players, but not anymore .....

    I think England are dead!: still, it'll keep the Scots happy

    KKK/TBH vs Clark/Blair - I only give the England/Scotland pair a 25% chance against the hottest property in badminton: I hope they can show me wrong, but what makes it even worse is that Rexy coached England and so knows this pair inside out. And 7% of that is for home advantage. [straight sets to Malaysia]

    MOHD. Fairuzizuan Tazari/Wong Pei Tty vs Robertson/Emms: If they play well, the world champions should come through [Robertson/ Emms in 3 games]

    WONG Mew Choo vs Tracey Hallam: Wong is an awesome player, she's really improved - something has really clicked. A couple of years ago I would have said Hallam would walk this match for England, for our second point. But I think Wong will win easily

    Wong Pei Tty/ Chin Eei Hui vs Kellogg/Emms: A tough one, but I think that the English girls can do the business here, as they did well in the Indonesian open.. I'm open to convincing tho as I don't follow women's doubles.

    Chong Wei LEE vs Andrew SMITH: If Andrew can take a game he will be ecstatic, considering he got owned by backup player Yeoh Kay Bin 21-11, 21-4 [ouch] last week, but Chong Wei is in a different class.

    Verdict: England lose 3-2 because of an improved WS. Traditionally, we depend on our women to get their points and our mixed pair to win it. Frankly, our men suck especially at singles [Why we can't produce any genuine singles players? I guess the intensity of training isn't there, and they all play the wrong badminton]. Though Clark/Blair flatter to decieve, they are a journeyman pair that - except for a WC final reached, then trashed by Cai/Fu - aren't worth their high ranking. The Asian pairs play fewer tournaments. I don't think they can beat KKK/TBH.

    I have split loyalties, I must admit. I want England to win, even though they won't, but LCW is my favourite player, and I would support him even against Smith [I do feel a bit guilty of this]. Anyway, I hope Smith takes a game, but he can't win.

    England/ Thailand

    Ponsana vs Smith: Ponsana should win on his current form, he is fit and strong, but he does play too much crosscourt so Smith has a chance.

    The mixed should be close but Robertson/ Emms should win.

    Men's doubles: Blair/Clark outrank Anugritayawon/Prapkamol[71] and should win really. One where our men's pair should win.

    Women's doubles: Could be really close: Emms/Kellogg are top 10 but Thailand have 2 strong pairs at 15/16 in the world. Hopefully a home win

    Womens singles: No clue, but assuming England play Hallam and Thailand Meemeak on world ranking Hallam is better and has been a top 10. Hallam is hard to play because she is very physical for WS, and on this basis was a top 10. Hallam to win?

    Verdict: England should win, but Thailand have a strong mixed pair and a chance in all of the matches. Bizarrely, it is the men who can take this tie for England. [England 4-1 Thailand]
