SLeague weekend

What a great weekend of action in Singapore. Saturday saw Home United fall at home for the second consecutive game, this time Tampines Rovers winning 4-2.

Two goals in a minute from Qiu Li had Tampines buzzing but goals from Indra on 21' and Naruphol on 54' helped Home crawl back into it. Li got his hat trick minutes after Naruphol's equaliser and then right at the death with his first touch sub Imran Sahib caught Lionel Lewis off his line and had Tampines fans going mental.

Last night saw Geylang entertain last season's double winners SAF at Bedok Stadium. A word of warning ... don't use the drink vending machines outside the stadium entrance! Bastards took a dollar of mine and gave me nothing in return...

As for the game, Geylang came into it on the back of three straight wins while SAF had been struggling of late. Murakami gave the visitors the lead on 35' and two quick goals from Alex Duric early in the second half looked to have wrapped up the points for the Warriors.

Two late goals from Luiz Machado Junior 72' and Masrezwan Masturi 77' set up a grand stand finale with SAF keeper Shahril Jantan tipping over on a couple of occasions.

Two great games, end to end stuff and great fn for a neutral like me. Perhaps less exciting for the coaches of Geylang and Home United who were left runing a pointless weekend and you can point the finger at defensive errors if you want to be picky but I don't.

1. Super Reds 12 10 1 1 24-10 31
2. SAF 12 9 2 1 35-13 29
3. Home 12 8 2 2 34-17 26
4. Tampines 12 6 2 4 25-18 20

Thanks to Pohui for introducing me to people and answering my daft questions!
