Results 10-11/02

Indonesia Super League

PSAP v PSMS 2-1 (You Wook Jin, Camera Sekou; Osas Marvelous) 4,763

Indonesia Premier League

Persijap v Persiba Bantul 1-0
Arema v Bontang

The Arema game was called off when two (2) Arema teams took to the field. What a farce. These guys promised to change the game and they sure are doing that!

Divisi Utama (LI)

PSIM v Persitara 3-1 (Emile Linkers, Lorenzo Rimkus, Eko Budi Santoso; Adolfo Souza) 9,764
Persebaya v PS Bengkulu 2-0 (Basuli 2) 2,027

Divisi Utama (LPIS)

PSP v PSLS 0-3
PSBL v Persikota 2-0
Persikabo v PSSB 2-2
Madiun Putra v Gresik United 1-1
Persewangi v Persbul 2-1
Perseman v PSBI 5-1

Tracking down scorers and attendances for the 'official' leagues is so damned difficult that I don't bother.

Malaysia Super League

Sarawak v Felda United 2-1
T Team v Perak 2-0
LionsXII v Negeri Sembilan 3-1
PKNS v Selangor 2-0
Kelantan v Terengganu 2-1
Kedah v Sabah 2-2
KL v Johor FC 0-2

1 - Kelantan 7 5 2 0 13-4 17
2 - Perak 7 5 0 2 8-6 15
3 - Terengganu 7 4 1 2 9-5 13

Not many goals on the MSLthis season with only three managing double figures so far. Kelantan won the north east derby to preserve their unbeaten start to the season while Shahril Ishak showed that playing in Indonesia's short lived LPI hasn't harmed his career by scoring twice against Negeri Sembilan to move LionsXII to 4th spot. Selangor's poor start to the season continued with defeat against PKNS being their second defeat putting them 7th in the table. Anyone got any sympathy for hapless KL? Bottom of the table, winless, playing in Melaka, they have just one point and have managed just two goals.

Malaysia Premier League

Harimau Muda v MP Muar 2-2
Sime Darby v PPUSM 4-1
NS Betaria v PDRM 1-1
MBJB v Malaysia Pos 0-3
Perlis v ATM 0-4

The ATM roadshow continues even without Marlon Alex James getting among the goals. Hairuddin Omar netted a hat trick as Perlis took yet another thumping. The team from the north west have conceded 22 goals in six games.


Albirex Niigata v SAFFC 3-2 (Okuyama, Soya 2; Mislav Karoglan, Shukor Zailan) 1,614
Home United v Balestier Khalsa 0-0 1,354

So it's Harimau Muda and Albirex Niigata ensuring the top two places in the SLeague are taken up by foreign teams! Shoddy writing in one of the papers when they slammed the game at Bishan Stadium. Not every game can be exciting, there ain't no magic formula. Not even Manchester United can be excellent every week but it seems to be the perception there in some quarters that football has to be excellent at all times. It ain't and never has been. New coach Darren Stewart will have been chuffed at result against a title favourite while do you think, if Home had lost 1-0 in an exciting game, their supporters would have been happy? Course they bloody wouldn't. Football is unpredictable; it's the nature of the beast. If you don'tget that then perhaps you should follow computer games or tiddlywinks.
