SFA Player Interview: Aisyah Fuad (Gang Bintang)

Apart from my interview with Terence, I have also interviewed Aisyah Fuad, Selangor Floorball Women's League's best defender for Tyttobandy!Co. in 2011. I have known her for almost a year and enjoyed playing with her throughout the men's league in Gang Bintang. From my observation when I see her play in the women's as well as the men's league, she is a calm and hardworking player with the passion to strive for the team's glory. The most notable moment will be Gang Bintang's 7:5 victory over GMI White Knights with Bintang only has 6 players in that game which I believe the victory is credited to Aisyah's persistent and strong defending.

Aisyah (Right) with her "Best Defender" award in Selangor Floorball Women's League 2011 (Source: Facebook)


Jethro: Hi Aisyah, first and foremost, thank you for agreeing to this interview. How has it been playing floorball in Malaysia?

Aisyah: Hi Jethro! First of all, thanks for "interviewing" me, it's nice to see SFA takes an interest in the viewpoints of the league players. It has honestly been a great experience for me – from getting lost to finding Puchong as a newcomer to Malaysia to playing in both the women's and men's leagues and most importantly, making awesome friends in Malaysia!

I played in Singapore for several years prior to this and of course, there are some differences but overall it's good to be part of a growing floorball scene in a country where I think there is MUCH more potential to harness.

Jethro: As the women's league will commence in two months' time, what is your view on the number of teams right now and how can SFA approach this issue?

Aisyah: The second season of the women's league has quite a number of changes since last year. As you mentioned, the number of teams is quite limited (I think there is 3 right now, with a 4th pending?). What comes to mind immediately is how much value it will bring to the ladies to play the same teams repeatedly or if we only play twice (home and away), that the ladies will have very limited game-time. A combined team will be great… just like how SFA has been doing it in the past season. In my personal opinion, I see much value when I play with the men's team.

I guess to match the level of the men's league, you would really have to up your fitness, skills and gameplay. It's a double-edged sword – some ladies will be motivated to work harder and others might be discouraged if the disparity in standards is so great. I used to play informal 3 on 3 sessions with mixed teams – I think that helped improve my game by leaps and bounds, so I will endorse this approach. Clearly, SFA has other good reasons to change the rules this season where ladies are not allowed to play in the men's league. But I really hope this will change! At least until we have more teams in the women's league.

Jethro: As you had played for Gang Bintang in the men's league, will you be switching to Gang Bintang for the women's league or remain at Tyttobandy?

Aisyah: I've switched to GB now. I'm really grateful to Tytto though, especially Dorcus and Alvin, for taking me in last season and I wish them all the best!

Jethro: As you are a much seasoned player in the women's league, and most sees you as a threat, how should you advise much inexperienced players to play at a competitive level?

Aisyah: I don't exactly believe they think that! But in any case, being an oldie, I would say that there is no other way to improve except by taking in new challenges. Be it challenging your fitness, clocking in hours on your stickwork/shooting and coming down to UM to play Floorball on Wed ;) It's not whether you can or not, it's how much you want it – so let's not make work, boyfriend/girlfriend/lepak commitments as excuses if you REALLY want to be better. I need to work on this too… since my work commitments are rather erratic but I try!

Jethro: What is your goal/objective for the coming season?

Aisyah: To be fitter and faster than last season, shoot better and thus help GB ladies retain their title :D

Jethro: Who, in your honest opinion, will be the team to watch in the women's league?

Aisyah: Will it be biased if I say Gang Bintang? Seriously though, they did really well last season and showed lots of chemistry on court – it's a joy to watch. So I think they will always be a threat. I think the other two teams, Foxy Blizzards and Tytto are also clocking in serious training times so it won't be a walk in the park. The competition will be really good.

Jethro: What is your suggestion in building floorball for the future in Malaysia?

Aisyah: a. Introduce floorball in schools/colleges/universities – if the young ones are interested right from the start, we will always have a constant pipeline of talent. Malaysia is so much bigger then Singapore in terms of population and having done well in Hockey where there is a parallel skill set, there is just so much potential waiting to explode! But people need to get interested you know?

b. Once you get people interested, how do you sustain their interest? Here, it is so important to have venues and equipment readily available and organising informal hit-around sessions (like what we already have in UM). As we all know, the only place to play floorball is in Puchong which is honestly too far away especially for people living in KL and the northern parts of Selangor (any of you?) to commute down south to Puchong especially on a weekday. The chronic shortage of venue really makes it hard to get any game-time and I guess to some extent, discourages people from playing. In this respect, I understand it is challenging to obtain funds for rental of venues and also to buy new boards (I think we all agree that the Puchong boards nak kena retire dah)… but we need to try. SFA will play the lead role to build this up though if we are all serious about it.

So these are my insignificant thoughts but I do hope you get some "foreigner" insight into the floorball scene of Malaysia!

Jethro: All right, thank you Aisyah for your time!

SFA Player Interview: Terence (Salibandy!Co.)

Recently, I have spoken to the 2-time best forward of the Selangor Floorball League, Terence (Salibandy!Co.) prior to the upcoming season. I have known Terence since seeing him playing floorball for the first time at Tunku Abdul Rahman College (TARC). As everyone know, Terence is known for his hard shots and agility to get past defenders and also his killer instinct in front of goals. He has scored the most goals for Salibandy!Co. in SFL 2010/2011 and 2011/2012. He is definitely one of the brightest talents in Malaysian floorball.
Terence (above) with his 'Best Forward' award in SFL 2011/2012 (Source: Facebook)

Jethro: Hi Terence, first and foremost, congratulations in picking up two Best Forward awards for two seasons in a row. What has motivated you the most in achieving such a prestigious award?

Terence: Since I started floorball, I have always wanted to improve myself to play better so that one day I could really represent Malaysia and win some medal. So this goal has been motivating me since I've been playing floorball for 3 years. Thank God that I could achieve such prestigious award and the hard work I have been training.

Jethro: As the league will be splitting into two conferences for the new season, what is your view on this? And also Conference A being sort of a "group of death", is this going to be an advantage to Salibandy!Co.?

Terence: I think that after splitting into 2 conference, there will be fewer matches and no chance competing with all the teams compared to last season because the team cannot face the opponent in the other conference. Yeah, I agree Conference A is being sort of "group of death", so luckily Salibandy!CO is not in Conference A but I wish whoever in Conference A 'all the best in your upcoming matches'.

Jethro: I was told that Salibandy!Co. will be branching out to TARC Salibandy and Charis Angel with most of your current players are the coaches, what was the deciding factor for the club to branch it out?

Terence: Floorball is still consider a new sport so it need to be spread out to the people who have never heard or played before. So when Salibandy!Co is branching out, new teams are formed and there will be more people joining the team to play floorball which we love so much.The other factor is the junior player of Salibandy!Co. must not rely on the senior players too much, if not the junior will not grow. By branching out, they will have their own team and start playing as one.

Jethro: Who is your favourite player? and Why?

Terence: My favorite player is Mika Kohonen because he is the best floorball player in the world. He is a Finnish floorball player and I've seen his videos on how he controls, dribbles and shoots which really impressed me.

Jethro: What is your goal/objective for the coming season?

Terence: My goal for the coming season is continue to be the best forward in Selangor and I would like to learn more things throughout this league so that one day I could really help Malaysia shine.

Jethro Who, in your honest opinion, will be the team to watch in Conference A and B?

Terence: In Conference A will be the mighty 'Subang Rascals' while in Conference B will be 'GMI White Knights'.

Jethro: What is your suggestion in building floorball for the future in Malaysia?

Terence: Firstly, we must have a proper court to begin with, then I would suggest that we could branch out so that more people could know what floorball is and join us. Secondly we must have proper training on physical and technical so that when we train, we know what we lack of, then only we will continue improving our weakness and learn from the mistakes.Thirdly we should have more friendly matches with different people from different places, by playing with them, you will know how the playing style they use or what strategies they used so that we can counter them next time when we meet in competition.

Jethro: Okay Terence, thank you for your time.

Terence: Thank you.

Premier Cup 2012: The Quarter Finals Preview

Welcome to the Premier Cup 2012: The Quarter Finals Preview! It has only been one week since the SFL 2011/2012 ended. There are some shocking results in the ranking table and unexpected turn of events that happened through out the league, and now it is time to kick in for some exciting Premier Cup actions!

1st Round: Bangi Rusty Blades V GMI Blackwings
(2 PM - 4 PM)

It was indeed a very close call for the Green Army, as they were very close to secure their place at the sixth spot of the league. They have played with their best, but unfortunately luck was not smiling upon them as all they could only tie down Gracebandy! Co. with a draw. This week, we can expect to see the players of the Rusty Blades to play with their hearts out in order to reach the semi-finals and meet the Hornets head on. For now, the players of this team might need to reevaluate their current team play in order for them to truly be a formidable team among others. With players such as Faz, Malik, Andy and Ayish, they might have what it takes to even become the champions of the Premier Cup.

Quite an impressive feat these lads have achieved, as they have managed to secure the ninth place last season despite being their first time playing in the league. As mentioned in the recap, they are a team that deserves respect as they never failed to put up a fight, be it against any teams in the league. Their hard work and passion is absolutely what every teams should take note of if we ever dreamed of raising the standards of this league. Their road to reach the finals won't be an easy one, as they will be going up against the blood thirsty Green Army who are eager to make up for their dismal draw last week against Gracebandy! Co.. Be as it may, this match will be a good platform for every players in this team to gain some experience before the upcoming season starts around the end of this year.

Players to watch (Bangi Rusty Blades): Faz, Malik, Ayish, Andy, Imran, Sasi

Players to watch (GMI Blackwings): Azizi, Hazizi, Asiff, Rezal

Predictions: Bangi Rusty Blades will win this quarter-final round and move on to the semi-finals to meet the Hornets.

2nd Round: Gracebandy! Co. V Joker Prodigy FC
(2 PM - 4 PM)

This team has put up a very great performance against the Rusty Blades last week, in which they have managed to tie down their opponents with a draw in a very tight match. With the likes Sheeda, Ros, Mervin and Kendrick spear heading their attacking force, they can become that must not be taken for granted by any teams. Through out this season, their form has been inconsistent as there were few unexpected victories and defeats, especially against the champions Subang Rascals where they have conceded more than 30 goals in both encounters. For this cup's quarter-finals, the Gracebandy! players should really get on their best forms as their opponents this time will not be easy to be taken down.

Through out the last season, Joker Prodigy was crippled by various problems, especially with  the lack of discipline among the players, which has seen pulled out from two matches during the league. After the joining of Ruben from Gang Bintang, they finally have the victories they have yearned for so long and became the morale booster for the remaining players through out the season. They still managed to put up a tremendous fight against the Griffins last week, where they were leading the match until the 2nd period. But due to the absence of their keeper who suffered an injury during the match against GMI White Knights, the Griffins finally found a loop hole in their defense and utilized it well to earn them a victory. This week, the players of Joker Prodigy should keep up the momentum that they had from that match and try their best to win in this quarter-finals in order to proceed to the semi-finals where they will be going up against KLIUC Griffins should they managed to secure a victory this week.

Players to watch (Gracebandy! Co.): Mervin, Gerard, Philip, Sheeda, Ros

Players to watch (Joker Prodigy FC): Khairul, Amir, Erry, Ruben, Naqi

Prediction: Gracebandy Co. will walk out with a victory and proceed to the semi-finals in a match against the Griffins.

Selangor Floorball League 2011/2012 Recap

As the Selangor Floorball League 2011/2012 season has come to an end, let us recap on what this surprising season has come about. This season has been an exciting yet surprising one compared to the previous two seasons. Many comeback victories, high-scoring games, nail biting encounters, upsets etc.

Well, that’s what we see based on the results. But what about internally? The management, team and match preparation, referees? I wouldn’t say anything critically, but I do want to say we can do better than this.

I’ll start with the controversial transfer window. The induction of the transfer window was based on an anonymous request and the league committee has come to an agreement to have a transfer window. But the outcome of the transfer window may have hurt some teams. Like Bangi Rusty Blade, they have 4 players transferring out within 24 hours. It may seem like a disadvantage. Due to this outcome, we have to think twice before allowing such ruling midway through the season. Yeah, it is interesting and exciting, if we compare it to international football season. But what good will it be if teams enter mishap? Lucky for Bangi Rusty Blade, they survived and fought back their pride in style.

What about the high-scoring league games? Subang Rascals have literally thrashed every single team this season with an impressive 334 goals! That’s 18.5 goals per game! Yeah, it’s nice to see them scoring in textbook perfection. But look at the bigger picture, has the standard of the game dropped? I wouldn’t say the players have deteriorate, in fact, individual skills have improved, but team play has not improved much. Or maybe, inconsistent. This is one area I believe everyone should look into seriously.

What about comeback victories? Many teams have done remarkable comebacks this season. Gang Bintang made many comebacks in the beginning of the season. Bangi Rusty Blade has done a remarkable comeback from a poor start till a satisfying league-placed finish. In fact, I put them as one of the favourites to win the Premier Cup alongside KLIUC Hornets. KLIUC Griffin has surprised many of their improvement from a last-placed finish last season till a 6th-placed finish this season. It was their commitment and passion as a team that inspires me most.

If you ask me which game is my favourite, I would say the GMI White Knights-KLIUC Hornets game. In that game, the crowd and players went ecstatic when the noise from both sides have lighten up the whole Rakan Muda complex. Both players show great promising runs to fight for their team's pride. Even though it was GMI White Knights who snatched a victory, the commitment shown by both sides has been a joy to watch.

Now, let’s talk about coaches. As we see this season, many teams have started employing sideline coaches except for Gang Bintang and Subang Rascals, whose players are the coaches. It has come in every team’s mind of the importance of coaches. National and Gang Bintang goalkeeper, Illyaz has given an inspiring speech on the importance of having a coach in the Selangor Floorball Association facebook and I believe that has triggered every team managers to have a coach. Well, I must say, this has a positive effect on the team play with experienced international players like Sjaiful, Khalid, Illyaz etc. all share their experience and induct it to the team strategies.

How about the new teams? GMI Blackwings have some impressive games despite their lack of experience. In the game I’ve played against them, where only 6 showed up. I believe they are a team who deserves more respect as they did not give up and fought till the end. Yeah, it might be nice for some teams to try and score more when they are understrength, but it is important, especially in a team sport, that we have to respect our opponents. Same goes to Joker Prodigy FC, despite having two walkovers, and their players’ commitment may seem questionable, I believe we should respect them for trying to gather the players, and they played with 6 players on many occasions, to come and put up a competitive match.

Now, let’s go to individual talents. We have seen the brilliance of Kamal Affendy, Dennis Thulin and many others who have been really impressive in a match. Terence of Salibandy!Co. was impressive as well with his great stick handling. But my two favourite picks go to Azmill Hadzim (KLIUC Hornets) and Alvin Lee (Salibandy!Co.). It has been a joy to watch when these two played. Azmill Hadzim, besides his infamous kick on the post which fractured his ankle, he has been really impressive this season. I might say Hornets’ form depends largely on him. If he plays well, then they play well. During a discussion with Juha Nevalainen, who surprised everyone and played for Hornets against Gang Bintang, he complimented Azmill and said he is on the right track to becoming a great goalkeeper. One of the key point of Azmill’s performances was his confidence in his hands. Maybe it has been a routine for him, but his ability in shot stopping has been remarkable and there’s always room for improvement. As for Alvin, I believe he is the backbone of Salibandy!Co. From my observation, he is the one who leads and influence the team plays at most times. I’m not saying their captain, Daniel Phang, is not doing a good job, but Alvin has been the most hardworking player in the team and have been an influencer of the team since the start of the first season.

Overall, this season might be a success, but we have many rooms of improvement. Entering our 3rd season already, we still have problems with time management, organization etc. I believe it is the job of everyone to put in efforts to help out whichever way they can because we are still developing the sport in the nation. And it is the responsibility of everyone to help improve the association and move it forward.

So long till Selangor Floorball League 2012/2013, twas' a good season and it is goodbye for now.

Selangor Floorball League 2011/2012: Final Matchweek

It has truly been a wonderful time in this league for all players of all teams. Some teams have achieved what others never thought they could and push themselves over the limit to become one of the Greats. This week will mark the end of SFL 2011/2012. So far, the rankings table has been much of a topsy-turvy roller coaster ride with the seats for the second and fourth spot are yet to be decided until this week. One thing for sure is that we might be having a plate full of surprises to end this season with an epic closing.

Match 1: Bangi Rusty Blade v Gracebandy! Co.
(12 PM - 2 PM)

It must be painful for them to lose in the hands of their former mentor, but they should proud of what they have achieved so far after the departure of Hafidz to Gang Bintang. It was even better when they put up one hell of fight against Gang Bintang last week, where both teams were attacking an all fronts despite the Green Army was defeated in that match. Most of their players have shown some very good improvements, and with a little more effort, they could regain their former glory as the Big Four in the league. This week, the Green Army will definitely be blood- thirsting for some victory against Gracebandy! Co., As a victory is indeed what they need to recover from their previous encounter against Gracebandy! Co. which ended with a draw. Perhaps with a tighter play in their center, they could have a grip of this match within their grasp and have a revenge on Gracebandy! in this final week.

They have suffered a grave defeat at the hands of the uncrowned champions; Subang Rascals. Now, the lads really need to work on their form and recollect what they have done when they were going against the Griffins previously. If manage to do that, they might be to have one more victory to add into their records for this season. However, to do so would require all players of this team should give their full commitment for this final match, or else they would have to suffer another defeat this week.

Players to watch (Bangi Rusty Blades): Malik, Faz, Andy, Imran

Players to watch (Gracebandy! Co.): Gerard, Philip, Mervin, Joo Min

Prediction: The Green Army will end their campaign with a victory against Gracebandy! Co. 

Match 2: Salibandy! Co. v KLIUC Hornets
(2 PM - 4 PM)

Salibandy! Co. has shown some spectacular performance throughout this entire campaign and has definitely earned them a spot to be in the prestigious Super Cup. The entire team has never failed to display improvements ever since the beginning of this season. It is not impossible for these chaps to become the champions of the league in the upcoming seasons. As alluring the thought might be, they will first have to first their rivals for this week; the Hornets and try to win against them for a redemption due to their defeat in the first leg of this season. Seeing how the Salibandy! chaps are playing right now, who knows they might even top off Gang Bintang and become the runner ups for this season. Interesting indeed, don't you think?

The Hornets have once again wowed the entire audience with their thunderous performance during their match against the Blackwings last week. They have dominated the entire first period and half into the second period. However, they failed to continue their dominance over the Blackwings as their opponents seem to finally able to sustain the oncoming attacks from the Hornets. This is a matter that should be taken seriously by the entire team of the Hornets as their final match against Salibandy! this week would become an epitome of their momentum for the next season. Not to forget, these chaps still might have the chance to play in the Super Cup if they could still pull this match off somehow with a victory.

Players to watch (Salibandy! Co.): Kelson, Daniel, Terence, Jiri, Alvin, Ricky

Players to watch (KLIUC Hornets): Azim, Dyla, Yoyo, Norman, Iffat, Halim

Prediction: Salibandy! Co. will walk out with a victory and be eager to see whether they could be the runner ups for this campaign.

Match 3: Subang Rascals v Gang Bintang
(4 PM - 6 PM)

This is it. The most long awaited clash between the two arch-rivals; Subang Rascals and Gang Bintang. This battle would finally decide which of these two teams are the best. In one hand, the Rascals have kept their record clean without any losses, meaning that they have unofficially become the new champions of SFL. Despite that fact, I would be betting that the players of these team would be very eager to meet their nemesis and settle some score with the two times former champions once and for all. The Rascals will be playing hard on all fronts to sustain their opponents and try to do what they always did in every game; absolute dominance of ball control. One way or another, this is definitely the highlight match for this week.

The former champions have endured a bad campaign this season. As this week would mark the end of SFL 2011/2012, they too, would be playing with using everything they have under their sleeves to ensure that they would not have to suffer another defeat at the hands of their arch-nemesis; Subang Rascals. While they have played a very heart-throbbing match against the Green Army last week, the Rascals too have been showing an absolute control over Gracebandy! Co.. For this week, all players of Gang Bintang should participate in this epic clash of the titans. A decisive between these two must absolutely can't be missed at all!

Players to watch (Subang Rascals): Sjaiful, Hendrik, Dennis, Snake, Harri

Players to watch (Gang Bintang): Khalid, Jethro, Hafidz, John, Anuar

Prediction: Subang Rascal to become the champion of SFL with a clean sheet on their records for this season.

Match 4: The GMI Derby( White Knights v Blackwings)
(4 PM - 6 PM)

White Knights has once again proven to be a formidable team as they won against a very tight match against the improving Joker Prodigy FC. But these White Knight lads have a lot more to learn before they could truly become a feared force in the league, as even though they were outnumbering the Joker Prodigy with a full team of three lines in their line up, they still could not shake off their opponents who were playing with only two players on the bench with a bigger margin in the scoreline. This week, they will be going up against their brother team; the Blackwings in the local GMI derby. With this being the final week of the league, they can't afford to lose against the Blackwings.

Even though they lose to the Hornets last week, their performance in the third period of the game was very admirable as they managed to hold the tally of attacks from the Hornets and even managed to score three goals in the third period. They too, are a team capable of amazing feats and this week would decide which of the GMI teams are the best. Perhaps they could surprise everyone this week with a victory against the White Knights. However it may be, a clash between these two is not one to be missed.

Players to watch (White Knights): Amai, Bard, Haidar, Shahir, Zul

Players to watch (Blackwings): Azizi, Hazizi, Asiff, Rezal

Prediction: White Knights to overcome the Blackwings in this GMI derby.

Match 5: KLIUC Griffins v Joker Prodigy FC
(8 PM - 10 PM)

The Griffins have started their campaign by surprising everyone with their improved performance compared to their last season. However, these past few weeks have seen that the Griffins could not find the much needed spark for their team to overcome their opponents. Serious review should be made by them and try to fix whatever problems that have been bugging them, as they were forced to pay the price with a few defeats in the previous weeks. As they will be going up against Joker Prodigy this week, they should not take things for granted as the Joker Prodigy might be able to surprise them with a boisterous performance to win against the Griffins. This is indeed a crucial time for the Griffins as how they perform this week would set the tone of their entire squad for the upcoming season.

Joker Prodigy FC is now on the verge of becoming a fearsome team, especially with the joining of Ruben from Gang Bintang. Their past few matches have seen that they are capable of achieving great things and should not be undermined by their opponents, no matter who they might be. They would be eager to have a victory against the Griffins on this weekend as a consolation prize for their team. They might be coming back for more next season. Who knows? All we can do is hope for the best for these lads.

Players to watch (KLIUC Griffins): Adi, Naufal, Medi, Izwan, Aqil

Players to watch (Joker Prodigy FC): Ruben, Khairul, Amir, Erry, Naqi

Prediction: The Griffins will have their long awaited victory this week.
