goodbye old chum


Milan Macala was the only Oman Football Team coach to ever get the lads to the finals in both Qatar and Abu Dhabi. And despite what everyone might say, he is by far the best coach for the local team because he was the only one who could achieve such an accomplishment.

But last night's 'hasty' decision by the Oman Football Association has raised some eyebrows between sports fans and critics alike in the Sultanate.

Is this how we repay the man who got us to where no other man has gotten the Oman Football Team to before?

You judge for yourself.

Blame is always "assigned"...and no one takes responsibility. Such a shame that he was made a scapegoat.

Yes he was. If anyone should be blamed it should be the football club association first, and the players 2nd.

The Association for not having organized its affairs properly before time was out for them. And for the players for taking things too lightly on themselves by saying 'we did our best' when clearly their best only got them 2nd place.
