Play Offs start today

The Liga Play Offs kick off in Kediri today with Copa winners hoping for a first ever domestic double. They play PSMS in an all Sumatran affair first up then Arema play Persiwa in the evening game.

PSMS will be without Agus Cima and Rommy Dias Putra for their game against Sriwijaya who a couple of weeks back beat them in the Copa 4-0 after extra time.

Arema will be without the suspended Ponaryo Astaman and Sutaji for their clash with Papuans Persiwa. They also lost Czech coach Miroslav Janu last week so this clash sees both sides coached by Joko Susilo. Not the same one obviously.

Tomorrow sees the attention switch to Solo where Persija play Persik and Persipura take on Sidoarjo.

There is though a spanner in the works. Former President Suharto lies ill in a Jakarta hospital and were he to die it is highly probable the Play Offs would be delayed. He is to be buried near Solo and rumours have it the government would call for a period of mourning for the man alleged to have bled the country dry during his 32 years on the throne.

Muggins here has booked to go down to Solo this weekend so you better hang on in there old fella!
