“Singapore itu anjing… Singapore itu anjing. Singapore, itu anjing, Singapore itu anjing”
Well, it’s just a low-class way of winding up Singapore players and fans. But according to Singapore player Irfan Fandi, “I heard it but I was already expecting to hear it so it didn’t affect me. I just ignored it.”
Well, orbi good. Singapore fans don’t have to stoop to their level. It’s a fact that the state of Singapore football is sibei jialat now but that is a discussion for another day. But at least we know how to support our team properly.
Singapore-Malaysia matches have always been feisty affairs. I guess it is typical of matches between close neigbours like England-Scotland matches. That rivalry makes for more exciting football.
But it doesn’t mean that fans must resort to petty name-calling and insults. In any case, I don’t see what is so insulting to be called a dog. Dogs are nicer (and cuter) than most people. Let’s see if the Malaysian Ultra fans will be more civilised at the next Singapore vs Malaysia match.
