    It wouldn't have mattered if the generals in charge were Gods gift to warfare or the absolute twists: the Allies could not have held Singapore. It was isolated, low priority given the war in Europe and North Africa, cut off by the Japanese Navy, under constant air attack, had little to no hope of reinforcement or even just resupply. So what if you out number the enemy when you're low on fuel, ammunition, food and water? You can't hold out like that. They didn't have a choice.
