2011 - The English are coming
It's an odd year meaning no World Cup or Euros. Which is good news for the money men at English Premier League clubs who look to stack their accounts with oddles of lovely dosh at the expense of stra struck Asian fans happy for just a scowl from a Drogba orRooney.
It has already been announced that England will play Thailand next June as part of England's 2018 World Cup bid, sorry to delight the thousands of fans of the English team as well as the shaven headed knuckle draggers in Pattaya.
Now we have news that Chelsea will be hitting both Thailand and Malaysia as well as one more Asian country.
Them perennial optimists Indonesia will be hoping at least one team will find time to squueze Jakarta into their busy schedule but insurance concerns maybe an issue after the Manchester United team hotel was bombed just days before the team were due to arrive in Jakarta.
