Hey Bokkie, can you spare us a dime?

Tomorrow sees Sriwijaya take on SAF in the AFC Champions League qualifier in Singapore. I reported the other day how the team from Palembang in South Sumatra were having financial worries but I didn't realise things were this humiliating.

The AFC expects clubs at the qualifying stage to provide their own expenses. That's fine for Muang Thong United as the Thai team only have to take a bus to Da Nang in Vietnam. But Sriwijaya need to fly. And they can't. 'Cos they're skint.

So SAF are paying their expenses.
