Doubts over DPMM future

It's been some old season for DPMM this year. Kicked out of the Malaysian Super League they were accepted into the SLeague where their in your face attitude upset a few feathers, which is no bad thing, leading the table for a while and even winning the League Cup.

Now their future is in doubt in the SLeague after reports from FIFA saying they have to pull out of the SLeague because of some admin hoo ha. Apparently there has been government interference in the Brunei FA.

I'd be surprised if there wasn't. There's only about 87 people in the whole country so we're bound to see some guy in the government sitting down to tea with some cousin in the FA.

Anyway, 'nuff of my crap. Here's the response from the Singapore FA.

SINGAPORE, 30 September 2009: The Football Association of Singapore refers to the article on the FIFA website today about the decision of the FIFA Executive Committee to suspend the Football Association of Brunei Darussalam (BAFA) and the subsequent status of Brunei DPMM FC’s participation in the S.League.

The FAS has been informed officially by FIFA earlier this year of their approval for DPMM FC to compete in the S.League for the entire 2009 season.

Regarding this latest development, FAS has yet to receive any official note from FIFA. We have since written to FIFA on an urgent basis to seek clarification and further instructions.

The FAS will provide further updates once we have received a reply from FIFA.

(MORE) COMMENT - exciting innit? I mean there we were getting all in a tizz 'cos half of the Singapore national team has headed south and just who was gonna replace them when up comes this old baloney. Just finish the bloody season then do what you have to do lah!
