Why can't Indonesian football build on anything?
Back in 2006 PSIS had a good season coming close to winning the Liga Indonesia as it was then known. But instead of using that season as a stepping stone the team was allowed to fall apart and PSIS now lie in the second tier Premier League with fans being told to forget about any promotion hopes.
The following season it was the turn of PSMS and Deltras. Management failed to capitalise on the good work done and guess what? They got relegated.
Now I'm not suggesting Arema will get relegated next season. But it does seem the slap dash approach to football club management in these islands may claim another victim.
Which is a long winded way of introducing this week's article in the Jakarta Globe!
