Tanjong Pagar Flying High
The SLeague has been the daftest, most insane, nuttiest and most unpredictable league in the region over the last few years and this year is proving to be no exception. The top of the table reads like the bottom would have done a few years back with clubs like Tanjong Pagar and Balestier Khalsa usurping the chillied crab cart.
Albirex Niigata have come out of the blocks flying, five wins from five and while some might worry about a powder puff strike force that has scored just seven goals this season only second placed Tampines Rovers have conceded less.
I'm loving the fact Tanjong Pagar are holding their own.They came back to the league a couple of years back as whipping boys but hidden amid the heavy defeats were some impreesive wins and performances, often against the 'bigger' teams. They have been doing a lot of work off the field to go in tandem with the upturn on it so good to see them getting their rewards.
A 6-1 win away to the once formidable Warriors is a case in point. Under their old moniker of SAFFC they went yonks unbeaten at home and in this game even managed to take a 1-0 lead on 10'. Tanjong Pagar responded with four goals in 19 minutes, adding two more in the second half to blow The warriors away and awaken people to their potential
