On the road again

Another long weekend means the missus has given me permission to get out and about for a couple of days. But the question is where?

It's FA Cup semi final second leg day in Malaysia on Saturday with Negeri Sembilan at home to Selangor looking particularly tasty. Holders Selangor are 2-1 down from the first leg...

In Singapore Sengkang Punggol host Albirex Niigata tomorrow while Home United mix it with Geylang United. I enjoyed watching Sengkang Punggol when they hosted SAFFC. They had something about them. On Friday has the talk of the town, lah, Etoile take on Balestier Khalsa.

The highlight in Thailand is probably the Chonburi Derby between Pattaya United and Chonburi while my 'local' team Thai Port play the Police. But will the airport be left open as Thaksin's own fan club get excited in Bangkok. He must have his money back guys mustn't he?

Closer to home Persebaya are at home to Persija in one of Indonesia's 'classic' fixtures. Pelita Jaya will be looking for a fourth, or fifth depending on today's result, straight win in Malang against leaders Arema.

Further afield in Myanmar early leaders Zeyar Shwe Myay are up against Delta United while Manaw Myay play Kanbawza. And in Cambodia NDM welcome Kirivong Sok Sen Chey and Wat Phnom play Prek Pra Keila, both at the Olympic Stadium on the same day in Phnom Penh.

All will be revealed on the morrow.

selangor vs Negeri Sembilan match will be live on Astro Arena in Malaysia - the new channel set up recently to celebrate sport in Malaysia.

Arena had the Terengganu vs Kedah semi Final last night.

The Negeri goals came in 2 second half minutes - both right wing crosses deflected into their own goal. They were crosses both, and just about the only efforts Negeri had on goal.

Crowd was around 40,000. Took over an hour to get out of the stadium.
i understand there has been a complete revamp of how malaysian football is being shown on tv and i hope to get up there some time to cover that with one of the driving forces behind it

lets hope they start kicking off at a sensible time.

i think it is easier to go see johor at larkin stadium from singapore by public transport than it is to go see selangor if you live in kl!
