United United United

i thought i was dreaming
Manchester United starts this season well. beating "young" Barca in preseason, beating neighbors in Community Shield. not only that, at 4-5 first fixture in Barclays, United seems unbeatable. i can tell that Scholes' retirement wasnt a problem. we got Cleverley, Wellbeck, Nani, Young, Rooney, Jones, Anderson, and all other players in the bestest form. but what about now?? without Clev, United barely win. they even lost 1-6 AT HOME to another Manchester. that was the worst day in years. how could United conceded 6 goals at home? critics and fools said that Evans' red card was the reason why United lost. i think, it's not really a problem. when he was sent out, United played with 4 backs, 4midfielders, and 1 striker. i would agree that a red card was a reason why United couldnt get a good attacking performance, but not a reason why they lost that way. with 4 backs, United shouldve been able to keep it below 4. 6??? it was truly an embarassment. for me, injuries problem was the reason. it'd be different story if Vida and Clev played. besides that, United fans should admit that City was just better that night.
for a reason, that result brings message that this year's squad is not good enough. i know that United can be good with such a good player like Clev dictating the midfield. the problem is, being a good team is not enough this year. that's why i think the boss should make a move in January. United needs a world class midfielder. 
my conclusion is that Manchester United can depend on Cleverley, but he's still inexperienced, and Jonny Evans IS NOT a dumb player. about that lost, it was just a zeropointer game. we need to forget that lost and remember that United hasnt dropped a single-point since then. we (hope that we) can win at the Eastland next year and that'll be a win that shows who the real champions are. still...... #GloryGloryManUnited
PS : for Londoners and Merseysiders who are happy about United's lost, remember that your teams are still no better that United in the table.

SNMPTN Undangan

     mulai tahun ajaran 2010/2011, nilai rapot menjadi sangat penting untuk masuk kedalam Perguruan Tinggi Negeri, pasalnya sekarang pemerintah mengeluarkan sistem baru. sistem ini sebenarnya sama dengan Penelusuran Minat Dan Kemampuan (PMDK). jatah PMDK adalah kurang lebih 10%, namun kini 50% dari kapasitas bangku Universitas Negeri diisi melalui SNMPTN Undangan. setiap sekolah menengah atas (atau yang sederajat) berhak mengajukan 50% dari seluruh siswa untuk mendaftar dalam SNMPTN undangan ini. tujuannya diberlakukannya sistem ini adalah untuk pemerataan kesempatan belajar. belakangan ini, pelajaran-pelajaran untuk mengikuti SNMPTN tertulis (dulu bernama SIPENMARU, UMB, SPMB, UMPTN) hanya diberikan di bimbingan belajar dan seperti yang kita tahu, tidak semua siswa bisa mengikuti bimbingan belajar. oleh karena itu, nilai rapot kini menjadi sangat penting. jika dulu rapot hanya dianggap sebagai formalitas untuk kenaikan kelas, kini rapot berguna sebagai "tiket" untuk masuk ke PTN.
      prosedurnya pun cukup mudah, yang diperlukan untuk mendaftar ke SNMPTN undangan adalah nilai pelajaran yang tertera pada rapot dari semester 1 sampai semester 5. kemudian pihak sekolah (biasanya Bimbingan Konseling) akan menyaring terlebih dahulu baru kemudian berkas-berkasnya akan dikirim ke pada panitia SNMPTN Undangan. jika pihak sekolah sudah menyeleksi, maka yang perlu dilakukan oleh siswa adalah mendaftarkan namanya via online. setelah itu, yang perlu dilakukan hanyalah menunggu hasil seleksi. 
      semakin besarnya prosentase SNMPTN undangan, berarti semakin kecil prosentase penerimaan ujian tertulis. oleh karena itu, pertahankan/perbaiki nilai rapot karena me-mantain nilai rapot seperti nya jauh lebih mudah daripada mengikuti Ujian Tertulis. info lebih lanjut: atau hubungi guru BK.

the special two : part two

     if in my previous writing i wrote about 2 best football coaches, now I'd like to write about 2 smartest musician. Thom Yorke and Matthew Bellamy, they are the frontmen of their band, they both are the main songwriter, they are a multi-instrumentalist, and yes they both came from the most successful-musician -producing-country. who's more genius? let's see..

     Matt is known best for his magical hand, he is a piano and a guitar master. he started to play piano when he was 6, he's like modern Mozart or something like that, he even got honorary doctorate degree for what he has done for music.i think Matt is a better version of Freddie Mercury. what about Thom? he's a very unique musician and he has no comparison. he has never learnt to read music because he think he can't express the rhythms properly that way. so it means he doesn't learn to be a genius. yes he can't play piano or guitar the way Matt play it but he's a better creator. Matt sings better but  Thom innoves better. so i personally think, Thom Yorke is a little bit more genius than Matthew Bellamy though they are different. we can't deny that 2 of them are geniuses the difference is that Matt is a genius because he learn to be a genius and Thom is born genius. that's my personal opinion. hmmm, collaboration maybe?

the special two

"way before two of them are rivals"
    last season, el classico was not only a battle between 2 biggest clubs in Spain but also a battle between arguably 2 best coaches. both of them was once work together, both of them has won the UCL twice, both of them has done the treble. but who's smarter? i dont know the answer for sure. Jose Mourinho, a controversial coach who brought Porto, Chelsea, and Inter to a successful years and is currently bringing Madrid back to the highest level of football. Mourinho won 5 major cups in his 2 years spell in Porto, won 5 in 3 years for Chelsea, and 4 in 2 years  for Inter. he's already won it 1 for Madrid. he's the first ever coach to win 4 league cup in 4 different countries and on his way to be the first one to win 4 different league trophies with 4 clubs and  3 UCL with 3 different clubs. Pep Guardiola, a younger coach than Mourinho that has won everything he could with Barcelona. he's got 6 major titles and 4 minor in only 3 years! he is the youngest coach ever to win UCL and the first coach that won 3 major cup in his first year as a coach.
Mutual Respect
    they met each other for nine times (already!?) and the results are 2 wins for Mourinho, 4 wins for Guardiola. in that way, i guess we can say that Pep is better than Mou. but football is not as easy as statistics, Pep won everything because of his team is way better than Mou's. Pep has 3 out of 5 best players in the world in his club & several world cup winning players while Mou is still developing Madrid (like what he did at his 3 previous clubs). Mou had a successful coaching career in 4 different clubs while Pep has never tried to coach any other clubs so far. Pep has a better winning percentage but Mou has a nine years straight without home defeat record. Barca under Guardiola has became more discipline and more aggresive than before, Mourinho always use a different strategy in almost every match (depends on what his opponent strategy). so the question about who's better still doesnt have any answers because two of them are basically a different kind of coach. every fooball fans would love to see "el classicos" when Mou's Madrid is well developed like Pep's Barca.

still number one in Indonesia

macau 2008: friends but rivals
    Badminton was found in England, but now Asian is dominating this sport. for me, there are 4 masters in this game now. Lee Chong Wei from Malaysia, Lin Dan from China, Taufik Hidayat from Indonesia, and Peter Gade from Denmark. technically, 4 of them are the same.  until now, when the four of them meet each other we'd surely see an entertainment rather than a match. the highest level of badminton, as commentators would say, artists of badminton. since im Indonesian so im gonna write more about Hidayat.

     at the age of 17, Hidayat became the key player when Indonesia won thomas cup 98. he advanced to All England finals when he was 18, he did it again when he was 19 but has never won the cup until now. 5-6 years ago, he's number one in the world. he won the gold medal in Athena 2004 and world championship in 2005 (being the first player to win it at the same time). when the system of 15points changed into rally point, he's no longer number one, but he won another gold medal in Asian Games (2006) by beating Lin Dan in the final. Hidayat is not a fast player like Lin Dan & Lee. so since the system had changed, they both are the best. although he's not a fast player but he has a powerful backhand smash and once recorded a 305 km/h jumping smash. now he's already won 24 major titles.he's now 30 but still being Indonesian only hope in men singles.
     badminton is the number one sport in Indonesia, we have a very good team and numbers of world class player back then. when the gold generation (Hendrawan, Hidayat, Candra Wijaya, Sigit Budiarto) got older we dont have any other good players anymore, now China is dominating the world by winning Thomas, Uber, and Sudirman cup. as a fan of the only sport that my country can be number 1, i hope Indonesia develope many young player's potential and have enough power to take the domination from China

greatest of all time?

"so long, Golden Boy"
    in boxing, the word "greatest" always been used for the great Muhammad Ali. but now, we can say that Manny Pacquiao is the greatest. the first boxer to win 10 world titles in 8 different class and currenty the best pound-for-pound boxer. stunning isnt it? he is a boxer who sent big boxers like Oscar de la Hoya & Shane Mosley to retirement. i dont know boxing very much, but i can tell that Pacquiao has a very good boxing style. he's a fast lefthanded fighter who can punch and dance for the whole 12 rounds. people wont feel bored when they see Pacquiao fighting .

     what makes many people proud of him? he is Asian (came from Phillipines)! i'm too an Asian so its very nice to see Asian breaking American & Mexican boxers domination for years. now, every boxing fan in all the world are waiting to see a mega fight between the unbeaten Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao.. hope that'll happen and as a Pacquiao's fan, i want to see him beating Junior!!

powerful device

     in 90's we were usually being asked "what's your phone number?",early 2000's "what's your cellphone number?", now.... "what's your pin?". normally, BlackBerry is a cellphone too, only smarter. what makes this device so powerful is  the features especially BlackBerry Messenger (fastest messenger for a phone), we can communicate with our friends for free 24/7 with this feature. not only that, there are so many things that seem simpler when we utilize BlackBerry, lets just say browsing, navigating, internet banking, tweeting, sending/receiving emails , and many more.but more than that, this device has become our life (especially in my country Indonesia). its the last thing on our hand before we sleep and the first thing on our hand after we wake. no matter where and when, we cannot force ourselves to not look to our BB when the red light blinks (this makes someone around us feel annoyed). 
     the conclusion is that BlackBerry makes the communication so much easier but we have to use it smartly since its a smartphone.

Master Mister

   musisi di Indonesia yang memiliki ego yang sangat besar dan sangat kontroversial. pendiri dan otak dari grup band Dewa 19. tak hanya itu, Ahmad Dhani juga penemu band-band seperti Ratu, Mahadewi, Backbone, Lucky Laki dan band-band lainnya di dalam manajemennya. ego yang besar dapat terlihat dalam Dewa 19, semua posisi di grup band tersebut (kecuali posisisnya dan gitaris) sudah pernah berganti personnel minimal 2 kali. tak cukup itu, Dhani bahkan menyalurkan egonya pada band-band lain seperti Ahmad Band, The Rock, dan Mahadewa. terlepas dari ego nya yang sangat besar, Dhani adalah pencipta lagu ulung. Dia musisi yang bisa memadukan idealisme dan selera pasar pada garis tengah, mebuat sesuatu yang berkualitas namun bisa dinikmati, contoh kongkret nya adalah lagu rumit "Roman Picisan" & "Laskar Cinta" yang bisa dinikmati oleh orang yang tidak mengerti musik sekalipun. kontroversial, sangat tepat menggambarkan dirinya. sangat sering muncul di infotainment mengatakan hal-hal kontorversi, terkesan sombong. salah satu hal yang pernah dikatakannya adalah "mengapa saya tidak pernah mendengar usikan dari orang bodoh? karena saya terlalu sering mendengar pujian dari orang pintar"
    belakangan ini, sepertinya Dhani mengalami penurunan produktivitas. kualitas lagu-lagunya bisa dibilang menurun meskipun aransemen dan harmoni vokalnya masih merupakan yang terbaik pada genrenya. bahkan, Dhani berjanji tidak akan pernah merilis album penuh lagi, album penuh dinilai terlalu boros untuk industri musik Indonesia jaman sekarang dan hal itu memang dibenarkan musisi-musisi lainnya. kata idealisme seperti nya sudah mulai pudar, kini Dhani lebih fokus kepada kepentingan pasar. para penggemarnya pasti berharap Dhani bisa kembali seperti jaman Bintang Lima lagi, tapi sepertinya itu adalah hil yang mustahal

film review : Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2

   this is it, the last film of Harry Potter where it all ends!!  Harry Potter's fans in Indonesia had to wait for 2 weeks just to watch it on cinemas. but that didnt change nothing, when the film was released in indonesian cinemas, almost all of the cinemas in Jakarta was fully filled by people who had waited for so long. its always been like that in Indonesia since the first film of HP. matter of fact, not only Indonesia but all over the world. J. K. Rowling must be somekind of a genius.
   enough about that, now were talking about the film. first of all, i dont watch Harry Potter since the first one. i dont know why,  i just dont. so technically i dont know anything about that film, i was just amazed when i saw lot of people queuing for hours just to see this film! so cool.. after i googled it, i found out that they do it not only for the films, but also when the novels were released. maybe i should say it one more time, J. K. Rowling is a genius, she has made lot of people love reading and the novels are already sold more than 400 million copies worldwide. wow..
    i wish i liked watching Harry Potter, one of the best serial films in the world..

Album review: The Beginning of a Beautiful Life

   ive just done listening to Maliq & D'Essentials' latest album (too late).... dan sangat takjub mendengar musik seperti itu lahir dari musisi-musisi berkebangsaan Indonesia. album ini terdengar berbeda dengan album-album Maliq sebelumnya, sangat mungkin album ini merupakan album "idealis" dari mereka , jadi pada album inilah terdengar musik dari band ini yang sesungguhnya. unsur musik funk lebih kental dengan permainan synth yang lebih 'liar'. album ini di buka dengan lagu catchy Beautiful Life. disaat para musisi Indonesia menulis lagu tentang cinta & patah hati, Maliq justru menceritakan tentang perjuangan mereka sebelum mereka terkenal(mungkin satu-satunya di Indonesia). di saat mereka harus bermain sampai larut malam tanpa di bayar, berpindah dari satu bar/cafe ke yang lainnya. semua itu mereka lakukan hanya demi kepentingan "Music And Live Instrument Quality" dan yang dianggap "Beautiful Life" oleh mereka bukanlah saat mereka memiliki kekayaan/materi, melainkan saat mereka berhasil memberikan kontribusi yang besar terhadap belantika musik Indonesia serta memperdengarkan goodmusic pada para pendengarnya
    single yang pertama di rilis dari album ini adalah Terlalu, lagu yang lebih 'liar' dari single-single pada album-album sebelumnya. kemudian ada lagu Get Down & Slide yang memperdengarkan genre funk yang kental. ada pula lagu dengan format akustik Berbeda, walaupun belum bisa menggantikan lagu Untitled / Terdiam tapi mereka memberi sedikit "kejutan" di pertengahan lagu. album ini di tutup dengan lagu indah berjudul Menari.
    pada album ini, Maliq berhasil mengkombinasikan permainan Moog dan keyboard yang apik ditambah dengan pengaruh dari gitaris baru serta vokal yang prima. walaupun hanya berisikan 7 tracks, album ini sangat "penuh" dan berwarna. semoga akan lebih banyak lagi album-album kreatif yang lahir dari musisi Indonesia

fabulous guys
    Fabulous Four, another name for the most influential band, the most phenomenal band, the pioneer of world pop revolution, and the greatest band ever existed in this planet The Bealtes. The Beatles were only an 8 years old band yet the things they had done (besides hairstyle) are so amazing. The Beatles consisted John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and George Harrison. all of them are a band leaders, that's why they couldnt stay together any longer (especially John&Paul).

The Beatles came from Liverpool but they became famous in Hamburg. they played at the clubs singing rock n roll music. at first, they adopted music from Elvis, Little Richard, Chuck Berry, and other rock n roll stars and when their 1st single was release, they became famous in all over EnglandWorld. they spread the 'virus' of  Beatlemania to almost every country including Indonesia. Indonesian President at the time prohibited The Beatles because he tought that The Beatles was a new style of Imperialism but that didnt stop Koes Plus from helping to spread Beatlemania in Indonesia.

"beatles who had gone"

    in the middle 60's there was something different from The Beates, they didnt perform lively, they left the rock n roll, and played their own music style. Sgt. Pepper's was the difference proof, that album was an alter-ego album (named as the greatest album of all time by Rolling Stone Magazine). Paul loved it but John hated it. since that album, things got worse. they treated each other like an additional player, their ego was too big. in that kind of situation, they still produced a great great albums. they agreed to not play as "The Beatles" anymore in 1970. all of them released a solo album. George played in John's and Ringo's album, John played in Ringo's, Paul played in Ringo's, but John and Paul never musically met after the breakups (except when Paul came to New York and jammed with John).
2 remaing beatles
     Just when they and the world thought of a "reunion" in 1980, John was killed. sad news for everybody, especially for Paul! 15 years after John's death, the 3 remaining beatles recorded John's unfinish songs that was given by Yoko. they recorded 2 songs and released an Anthology albums. several years later, George died for his illness. Paul and Ringo played in Eric Clapton's Concert for George.
though 2 of The Beatles was died, the music that The Beatles brought to the world will never die. Longlive The Beatles!!

Football Team of Manchester... The Good One

   Manchester United, Klub (kedua) terbaik di dunia. apa yang buat gw suka sama MU? for me and my generation, mungkin cuma ada 1 jawaban untuk pertanyaan itu : David Beckham, pemain paling inspirasional di generasinya. tapi setelah dicermati, banyak pemain yang menarik di tim itu. pada saat itu MU memiliki Capt. Roy Keane, "the goalscoring machine" Nistelrooy, "The Legend" Ryan Giggs, "the maestro" Paul Scholes, dan masih banyak lagi.
kejayaan 2008
   tak lama setelah itu, nama-nama pemain diatas (kecuali kedua nama yang disebut belakangan) digantikan oleh pemain-pemain yang lebih muda seperti Michael Carrick, Ronaldo (yang kurus), dan Wayne Rooney. pergantian yang di lakukan oleh pelatih Sir Alex Ferguson (Fergie) menandakan era baru dalam klub. ketiga pemain tersebut di tambah dengan peran yang sangat besar dari Van Der Sar, Rio Ferdinand, dan Nemanja Vidic berhasil membawa MU menjuarai 3 trofi liga dalam 3 musim, ditambah dengan 2kali masuk final UEFA Champions League. dari sekian nama pemain yang telah disebutkan, nama yang paling menonjol adalah Ronaldo, winger Portugal terpilih menjadi pemain terbaik dunia atas kontribusi nya yang sangat besar terhadap tim. namun, Fergie lebih memilih menjualnya. keputusan tersebut berdampak baik bagi kedua pihak, Ronaldo mendapatkan tim yang sepertinya lebih cocok untuknya dan United mendapatkan hasil penjualan yang sangat banyak. well, sepertinya penjualan pemain tersebut sangat berpengaruh buruk bagi tim. United gagal mempertahankan gelar dan menjadi tim yang kurang diperhitungkan di Eropa.
    Hanya butuh waktu setahun bagi Fergie untuk mengembalikan kejayaan United. berhasil menemukan posisi yang pas untuk Rooney, mendatangkan penyerang berbakat dari Meksiko, dan mulai "panas"nya Dimitar Berbatov membuat MU kembali menjuarai Liga Inggris dan masuk ke final Eropa. gelar juara di musim tersebut sangat spesial karena United berhasil menggeser Liverpool dari tahta "Raja Inggris".. musim baru akan segera di mulai, Fergie kehilangan 5 pemain berumur pada musim panas ini, hal tersebut langsung di antisipasi dengan mendatangkan bakat-bakat muda baru.
    Hal inilah yang membuat Manchester United sangat spesial. mereka bukanlah tim yang sangat berisik, bukan juga tim yang prestasinya menanjak setelah di beli konglomerat minyak dari Eropa Timur, bukan tim yang terus menggali bakat muda tapi selalu gagal dalam perebutan gelar, dan yang pasti bukan tim yang hanya bisa membanggakan sejarah. GloryGlory ManUnited!!


Bulan kesembilan dalam tanggalan Hijriah. bulan yang spesial di antara bulan-bulan yang lain. bulan yang terdapat malam 1000 bulan, Al-Quran diturunkan di bulan ini, bulan dimana yang menjalankan di wajibkan untuk berpuasa dan mengamalkan Zakat Fitrah serta diberikan "bonus" shalat sunnah tarawih, bulan di saat umat muslim berjaya di Perang Badar, tidak lupa Indonesia merdeka juga di bulan yang penuh rahmat ini.. Subhanallah.. 


many twitter ids say that. but i dont think so, one of the greatest figures in Indonesia (boy from "catatan si boy") said "friends are a family that we choose". i personally think that friends are a family or an enemy that we choose. just keep these words, in life we have ups and downs, (real) friends are those who stay on your side when youre down and bestfriend is just someone who won't let you do dumb things.... alone . simple isnt it?

new hope

    Harapan baru.. dalam hal apa? hal yang sebenarnya kecil tapi besar, yaitu Sepakbola. khususnya persepakbolaan di negara besar tapi termasuk "kecil" dalam dunia persepakbolaan.setelah kemenangan 4-3 lawan Turkmenistan, sepertinya timnas memiliki harapan baru... berikut adalah beberapa momen yang sempat disebut sebagai "harapan baru"..
    Gw sendiri mulai nonton bola dan mengira munculnya harapan sejak Tiger Cup 2004, di saat Indonesia dilatih oleh Peter Withe, pelatih asal Inggris yg sebelumnya sukses di Thailand dan sempat bermain untuk klub sepakbola Aston Villa. indonesia mengawali turnamen tersebut dengan hampir sempurna : 2 menang, 1 seri dengan catatan tidak kebobolan 1 gol pun. hal itu menandakan pertahanan yang dibangun oleh Mauly Lessy dan Charis Yulianto sangat baik. di turnamen itu pula nama-nama seperti Ilham Jaya kesuma, Solossa bersaudara (Boaz dan Ortizan) , Elie Aiboy, mulai sering di bicarakan. di babak semifinal, Indonesia melakukan comeback yang luar biasa, menang 4-1 dari Malaysia (agregat 5-3) setelah tertinggal lebih dulu. ohya, tak lupa, striker Kurniawan Dwi Yulianto masih memberi kontribusi yang sangat besar pada masa itu. sayangnya, pada babak final Indonesia harus kalah dari Singapura yang 80% pemainnya merupakan pemain asing..
    Harapan baru kembali muncul di pertengahan tahun 2007 di saat indonesia menjadi tuan rumah bersama untuk kompetisi sepakbola terakbar di Asia (Asian Cup). nasib membuat Indonesia berada di grup yang berisikan Saudi Arabia, Korea Selatan, dan Bahrain. Indonesia berhasil memukul Bahrain 2-1 melalui gol Budi Sudarsono dan Bambang Pamungkas. pada matchday 2, Indonesia hampir saja menahan seri Saudi Arabia jika tidak ada gol sundulan pada akhir pertandingan tersebut. hasil pada laga lain menyebabkan Indonesia berpeluang lolos ke babak knockout dan mencetak sejarah baru. sayang, pada laga terakhir Indonesia harus kalah dari Korea Selatan. memang timnas sama sekali tidak memiliki target juara, tapi rakyat Indonesia patut berbangga karena kita bisa bersaing sengit dengan tim sebesar KorSel dan Arab Saudi... tak lama setelah itu, federasi memutuskan kontraknya dengan Ivan Kolev dan menggantinya dengan pelatih yang cukup disegani di level domestik yaitu Benny Dollo..
dibawah kepelatihan Benny Dollo, timnas seperti tidak berkembang dan PSSI pun memutuskan untuk menggantinya dengan Alfred Riedl. Riedl merupakan pelatih yang menomorsatukan kedisiplinan (cocok untuk pemain-pemain Indonesia..
    Harapan lagi-lagi muncul pada Piala AFF 2010. pada turnamen ini, Indonesia memiliki dua penyerang andalan yaitu Christian Gonzales (pemain berkebangsaan UruguayIndonesia) dan Irfan Bachdim. nama yang terakhir disebut sempat menjadi idola tersendiri bagi kaum hawa. timnas memulai perburuan gelar raja ASEAN dengan sangat meyakinkan: membantai Malaysia dan Laos masing-masing dengan skor 5-1 dan 6-0 serta mengalahkan Thailand dengan skor 2-1. di Semifinal pun, timnas berhasil mengalahkan Filipina, tim yang di perkuat 8 pemain yang berakademi di tim Liga Premer Inggris , dengan agregat 2-0. di final, Indonesia kembali berhadapan dengan Malaysia. di saat semua orang yakin Indonesia akan menang dengan mudah, ternyata malah sebaliknya. Riedl menyatakan kekalahan tersebut adalah akibat politisasi sepakbola di Indonesia. pendapat itu di benarkan oleh sebagian rakyat Indonesia. sejak saat itu, hanya ada 2 kata yang sering dilontarkan oleh pendukung timnas Indonesia : N***** TURUN!!... mungkin para pendukung mulai sadar, sehebat apapun pelatih dan pemain akan sama saja jika ketua federasi sepakbola negara ini masih sama.
    Perjalanan panjang dan terjal untuk "menormalkan" federasi sepakbola di Indonesia akhirnya berakhir. walaupun berakhir pahit untuk pelatih Alfred Riedl, tapi Indonesia sepertinya mendapat angin segar dengan muncul nya pelatih baru asal Belanda Wim Rijsbergen (pelatih yang ikut membawa Trinidad&Tobago ke putaran final Piala Dunia 2006 dan 2kali bermain di Final Piala Dunia bersama Belanda). permainan Indonesia seakan berubah menjadi seperti Timnas Belanda atau seperti klub Barcelona sekalipun. hal itu dapat di buktikan saat Timnas dengan mudah nya mencetak 3 gol ke gawang Turkmenistan walaupun masih banyak yang harus dibenahi. kemenangan atas Turkmenistan membuat Indonesia lolos ke putaran ketiga Pra Piala Dunia 2014..
    Ketua federasi baru, pelatih mumpuni, serta pemain-pemain handal.. itulah hal yang mungkin dimiliki oleh timnas sekarang. kita pecinta sepakbola Indonesia tentunya berharap kemenangan atas Turkmenistan benar-benar menjadi harapan baru yang bukan merupakan harapan kosong seperti sebelum-sebelumnya
dan semoga pelatih  Wim Rijsbergen dapat mengulangi suksesnya dengan T&T serta para pemain sukses mengulang sejarah tahun 1938 sehingga Bendera Indonesia dapat berkibar di Brazil 2014
