Myanmar Fans Raise Roof

Over 2,500 fans filled the Hougang Stadium last night to see Hougang United take on Myanmar National League team Okkthar United, coached by Singaporean Sivaji.

Hougang, unfortunately nicknamed The Cheetahs, won 3-0 but it was the Myanmar fans who stole the show apparently by bringing a football style atmosphere to a game in Singapore.

3-0 is pretty bloody convincing, a damned sight more convincing than Arsenal's pissy 1-0 they take to Italy next week so it's far to say Hougang are on course for a second Cup semi final. They of course reached the League Cup Final before succumbing to Albirex Niigata on pens.

Hougang's turn around this season, sorry but I can't call a football team Cheetahs unless they come from continental Europe and speak with their hands a lot, has been one of the stories of the season in a truly thrilling season in Lion City.

Results So Far

Tampines v Home 3-3
SAFFC v Albirex 0-0
Hougang v Okkthar 3-0
Gombak v Etoile (play today)

Tanjong Pagar United is called The Jaguars, why The Cats will sound more local...
