Still The Most Exciting League In The Region

The maths are, to coin a phrase Martin Tyler uses all too rarely, a piece of piss. Tampines Rovers are four points clear of nearest challengers DPMM and have just a game left, against Harimau Muda on 1 November.

The title could be theirs before then. DPMM, who won at Woodlands last night 2-1, play Hougang United this coming Wednesday at Hougang Stadium. If DPMM fail to collect any points then the Stags will be celebrating back to back titles when they run out against the Malaysians.

If DPMM can get three points at Hougang then everything will be down to the Stags final game of the season.

Tampines amazing turnaround at SAFFC on Friday night could well have been the deciding game of the season. Fazrul Nawaz had given SAFFC a 2-1 lead on 84' and it looked like the Stags were down. But they fought back with an equaliser from Benoit Croissant before Jamil Ali sparked wild celebrations among the travelling support in injury time.

Yet another exciting climax to the SLeague season but somehow the powers that be can't translate that edge of seats stuff into bums on seats and now matter how much they window dress with split leagues and fining clubs for having the temerity to finish last they are groping in the dark. They have no marketing plan to get more people interested and that is the be all and end all.
