Malaysia Under 23 v Nepal 2-0 (Faris Ramlan, Yong Kuong Yong)
Indonesia Premier League (I think that's what they're calling it)
Persib v Semen Padang 1-1 (Milijan Radovic; Mostapha Aji)
Former Persikota and Persitara striker Mostapha Aji had the honour of scoring the first goal in the latest new era in Indonesian football as the new season got under way at Soreang. It promises to be another long and fascinating season! Champions Persipura had been scheduled to play newly promoted Persiba Bantul in the newly expanded 24 team league but they said they weren't ready. Ordinarily I think in those circumstances, where a team refuse to play, the game gets awarded to the team who would play, in this case Persiba, but they're now in Jakarta preparing to face the Indonesian Under 23s.
So the league has kicked off but we don't know how many teams there are, 14 are said to have withdrawn and are considering a league of their own, while the 10 remaining could go it alone. And no more games have been scheduled, the initial fixture list I guess having been torn up.
And no, I don't do drugs, I'm not pissed and I'm not making it up.
Thai Premier League
Khon Kaen v Army 2-0 2010
Chonburi v Police United 0-0
Disappointing draw for Chonburi sees them 10 points off leaders and champions (!) Buriram PEA.
Young Lions v Woodlands Wellington 5-1 (Gabriel Quak, Irwan Shah, Faris Ramli, Hariss Harun, Nigel Vanu; Moon Soo Ho) 344
The heady days of when Pele and Eric cantona attracted over 2,000 fans to the JBS are long forgotten. It's been a long hard season for the Young Lions but this victory would have cheered their dwindling band of supporters. As for Woodlands, the adjective 'hapless' unfortunately fits them like a glove. Three wins and 15 goals all season...
