Premature End For Star Names In LPI?
The transfer window opens in June but already clubs are carrying out the dreaded 'evaluasi' or evaluation of the season, and their players, so far.
And instead of being carried out in house club officials are quick to run to the local media giving updates of who could be staying and who could be going. Of course no-one above the level of coach is ever evaluated, they are considered untouchable and they are also infallible. Any woes on the field are not their business.
Bandung have had a dreadful start to the season with just two wins from their opening 11 games. The club are saying that there is a big chance they will replace their big name players and that includes former Aston Villa and England midfielder Lee Hendrie.
This weekend Bandung host Bintang Medan in Kuningan, West Java. The Medan team have yet to win away from home and Bandung will be hoping to build on last week's away win against Cendrawsih Papua. But how motivated will the players be knowing that they probably have no future at the club?
