Thailand v Malaysia

Time for some revenge perhaps tomorrow afternoon when Chonburi take on Kelantan in a friendly in Chonburi. Though of course no one is suggesting this will become a grudge match after the Malaysians knocked Thailand out of the SEA Games.

Kelantan had a promising campaign in 2009 finishing runner's up in both the FA Cup and the Malaysia Cup. Their MSL title challenge fizzled out when they were banned from playing home games in Kota Bahru after incidents of crowd trouble.

They have lost Khalid Jumlus who has moved to the Army side but have been recruiting smartly with Hairuddin Omar, Norshahrul Idlan Talaha (a candidate for Jakarta Casual Young Player of the Year 2009) and former Darlington trainee Syed Adney Syed Hussein being added to the ranks.

Of course Kelantan will not be at full strength with a few players still on SEA Games duty while it remains to be seen who lines up for Chonburi.
