Indonesia Premier League
PSMS v Persebaya 1-2
Persiraja v Persija (!) 3-3
Other games were scheduled but never happened. Arema flew all the way to Papua to play Persipura...but last year's champions had already withdrawn from the league and were playing n the Inter Island Cup. Who the hell allowed them to fly when they had no opponent? Change the game my arse. Persib were due to play Mitra Kukar but both teams have withdrawn. And Persija aren't Persija at all, they're Jakarta FC. What a joke...
Thai Premier League
Army v TTM Phichit 2-0 (Leanardo, Jakrapong) 3,125
Chiang Rai United v Bangkok Glass 2-2 (Wasan 2; Saruta, Souza) 8,300
Raj Navy v Buriram PEA 0-1 (Franck Ohandza) 4,376
Khon Kaen v Chonburi 0-2 (Adul, Pipob) 5,100
Buriram PEA go 13 points clear at the top of the TPL after a narrow victory against the Navy while Chonburi's victory in the north east just allows the myth that the TPL is a competition and not just run for the benefit of one team to continue that little longer.
1 - Buriram PEA 26 20 5 1 51-11 65
2 - Chonburi 26 15 7 4 49-23 52
3 - Muang Thong United 25 15 7 3 44-19 52

Home United v Geylang United 5-0 (Masrezwan Masturi 3, Qiu Li, ShiJiayi) 786
Tampines Rovers champions of the SLeague for the first time since 2005. And in a comment as to how seriously the local media take football their one journo was asking how many times the Stags had won the trophy...never heard of research fella? Asian Football Pictures has some images from the game.
sadly tampines wont be in the afc champions league but in the afc cup. having foreign teams in the s-league is detrimental to the local teamsPost a Comment
