DPMM Claim Another Victory

The DPMM juggernaut shows no sign of easing up. Last night, they defeated Woodlands Wellington 2-0 up in the wilds of north Singapore with goals from Rodrigo Antonio Tosi, penalty, and Azwan Rahman.

The three points puts the Brunei side five points clear at the top of the SLeague with an almost unassailable goal difference of plus 21.

Unfortunately, I missed the game having been put through the industrial world of a local hospital in the morning. I went in a normal human being and came out a quivering automaton shorn of independent thorn and minus several hundred dollars from my wallet.

For Steve Kean's men though, the future is rosy as they gallop towards their first ever SLeague title. And for Kean, perhaps vindication of his decision to join a team in the unfancied league after a harrowing spell at Blackburn Rovers.

Before taking the reigns in Brunei, the Scots coach says he was approached by Chelsea to work as an assistant to the then incoming Jose Mourinho but he opted for the sultry climes of South East Asia rather than the dour reality of Jose's 19th century interpretation of the game.

With Tampines dropping points last time out, DPMM, despite having played a game more, sit comfortably five points clear of their nearest challengers and in their current form will take some stopping.
