Johor Darul Ta'zim Back In The News

Love 'em or loathe 'em, you can't deny Johor Darul Ta'zim make great stories for the media.

They drew 1-1 with Pahang in the FA Cup and are still whining about the ref costing them penalties.

They also want to move to a new stadium. That would have been the last thing on their minds when they were in the Premier League and known just as Johor.

I would go to Larkin Stadium and if you were lucky the crowd would top 30.

Things have changed with big bucks in the club and Larkin Stadium is packed every game.

So the club are to build a new stadium...on a new island between Singapore and Johor. The new island, by the way, is claimed to be twice the size of Sentosa, Singapore's artificial playground.

The 50,000 capacity stadium will, apparently, be the most state of the art in the whole wide world so there.

And there's more.

Johor Darul Ta'zim are considering moving to the SLeague for next season. It is unclear what the SLeague think about this or indeed Harimau Muda and the Malaysia FA.

As is often the case with people whose pockets are deeper, the royal owner has said he will pay a fine to the Malaysia FA if that will make everything more.

Oh, and there is more! The club have offered $3.5 million to Boca Juniors for Juan Manuel Martinez for next season. And they expressed an interest in Selangor's prolific Paolo Rangel.

I haven't finished yet. JDT are considering a friendly against AC Milan. And a game against an all start team featuring the likes of Neymar and Lionel Messi.

Not sure where the World Cup fits into this master seems the paper reporting the story didn't bother asking any logical questions. Check the original story here.
