Singapore Cup Final

Tomorrow sees the Singapore Cup Final taking place at the Jalan Besar Stadium. Home United will look to complete the first leg of a domestic double when they take on League Cup winners Albirex Niigata.

Last year's affair saw Bangkok Glass defeat Tampines Rovers 1-0 (programme cover left) while I got shitfaced in an infamous bar district with persons unknown and returned home with just a toy bus for my son.

In fact if you want trivia here's some. My first ever football game in Asia was a cup semi final between Geylang International and another team in 1991 at the Jalan Besar Stadium. I have never been able to find out who they played that night though they did go on to win the cup that year.

The ingapore Cup began in it's current format in 1997 and it won't surprise anyone with a passing interest in the game there to know that SAFFC have been the dominant team in the competition, winning it four times while Home United can overtake that record if they win tomorrow against the Japanese side.

The bus, by the way, went the way of most things I buy my little Gooner. He broke the bloody thing.

if a non singaporean team wins the singapore cup, should the singapore cup still be called the singapore cup?
cardiff city won the fa cup in 1927...last year bangkok glass won the cup
the fas is being completely mismanaged. instead of involving foreign teams, why not involve teams from the NFL and other leagues. imagine a lower league team knocking out a s-league team. won't tt be great
i agree that the singapre cup should feature nfl teams...always creates extra interest
