Sympathy For Buriram?

Normally, not from me. But players are only players and their reward for a good run in the AFC Champions League has been to play five games in 17 days; a gruelling schedule by anyone's standards.

That run has seen them win one, draw two and their defeat against Thai Port last weekend was their second on the spin after their 4-3 reverse at home to Chonburi.

Wonder what HRH Newin thinks of all this?

Buriram's loss of form, or tired legs, comes as they are trying to catch up on their missing games while the rest of the league takes a breather.

They are still third in the Thai Premier League, level on points with BEC Tero but are eight points behind leaders Muang Thong United.

Can't sympathise too much - their "good run" was 1st Rd elimination, & their SQUAD should be able to handle the load. While the TPL deserves some credit for trying to ensure AFC success by postponing their games around ACL fixtures, is it really necessary in group stage, where opponents are all East Asian? Better to do it in knockout stages, around trips to Middle East
