PSIS Make It Four Straight Wins

PSIS made it four wins out of four after winning 2-1 at PPSM. For a change, Julio what's his name did not score but it didn't matter 'cos Muhammed Yunos did which I guess means the pioneer of micro finance in Bangladesh has found a new career away from their whacky politics. Good crowd there as well, 7,600 including a large away following.

Persikad continued their own pretty unique start to the campaign. They drew 0-0 away to Persisko and they now have drawn all four of their opening games, scoring just twice. Pop quiz, hot shots. How many goals have they conceded?! It was Persisko's first point of the season!

Two rebranded clubs met in Samarinda. Last season they would have met in Bangkalan! Pusamania Borneo, formerly known as Perseba Super, defeated Kalteng Putra, formerly known as Persepar, 2-1 in a Borneo derby. What is interesting for dullards and anoraks like me is the crowd was just over 1,000...I thought the whole point of Borneo was to be a fan owned club objecting against the politics of Pusam yet both teams got crap crowds in their last home games.

The Yogya derby ended blankety blank. PSS drew 0-0 with PSIM in front of 15,000 plus fans and PSIM warning it could be their last game of the season as they have no money...a common tactic here Im afraid. Makes you wonder, dunnit. They have a verification process before the season starts, don't they check the club's finances?!

In the Sidoarjo derby, Persida came out on top and moved top of the group after a 2-1 win over their bigger, brasher rivals Deltras. Just 4,300 bothered attending. Makes you wonder about all that loyaltis tanpa batas you keep reading and hearing about doesn't it?

Finally Cyril, Persis  defeated Persip 1-0 in front of just shy of 8,000 with an injury time penalty. Who'd have thought that, eh?
