Cheap Headlines From Other People's Fame

Following on from Muang Thong United's flirtation of Italian Alessandro Del Pierro comes news of another South East Asian football team linking themselves with the great and the good.

This time it is Malaysian Premier League side Johor. They are talking about bringing over Juan Roman Riquelme and Pablo Aimar for next season!

Johor fans getting excited
You can just imagine the two Argentine superstars champing at the bit to come and play in Malaysia's second tier!

Mind you, the same football club was supposed to bring Gabriel Batistuta over earlier in the year. That never happened.

The classic though was the guy from Minangkabau in the short lived Liga Primer Indonesia who last season suggested he was in discussions to being Dennis Bergkamp, yep the non flying Dutchman, to his team.

Local TV may be crap with an endless parade of celebrity gossip and horrendously acted soap operas where everyone has white skin but who needs it when you have club owners who come out with such great one liners!
