Synopsis: The Straits Times tackles the biggest sports talking points every month. The national team galvanised football fans with their never-say-die spirit even as they went down to a 5-3 aggregate defeat by Indonesia in the semi-finals of the AFF Suzuki Cup. But less than 72 hours later came the bombshell: their coach, Tatsuma Yoshida, was leaving a year before his contract was due, to be closer to his family. ST sports correspondents Sazali Abdul Aziz and David Lee, and sports reporter Deepanraj Ganesan, discuss where the Lions and the Football Association of Singapore (FAS) go from here.
