Calisto's Out

It's been reported in Thailand that Muang Thong United and their coach Henrique Calisto have parted ways. Which is fair enough when you consider the back to back champions haven't won a Thai Premier League game since August 20th when they beat TOT 3-1. Indeed their last home win was 10 August when they thumped Bangkok Glass 6-2.

A shockingly poor run of form it must be said and you can only wonder at the club's patience before acting. When you consider they have also been knocked out of the Thai League Cup and the AFC Cup then you can see times are tough at the Thunderdome.

Keeping track of Muang Thong's coaching merry go round* is as futile as recalling every stadium Pelita Jaya have used as a home ground or which team's benches Boy Jati has warmed in recent seasons.

Tomorrow they travel to Samut Songkram for a vital game. They are in 3rd place in the TPL, 12 points behind leaders Buriram PEA with two games in hand.

* I am reliably informed his replacement will be the seventh coach in five years!
