Leandro Lives Another Day As PSM Defeat Persela

PSM v Persela 2-1 (Rizky Pellu, Alex De Souza; Herman Dzumafo) 9,882

Going into this game the headlines were all about the future of PSM coach Luciano Leandro. Three points and how quickly football can change. Now it is Persela coach Stefan Hansson under the spotlight as Persela fell to their second defeat of the season. 

Post match Leandro praised his players patience saying Persela had come to defend and had been very difficult to break down before man of the match Rizky broke the deadlock. However after the game club management said they were continuing to evaluate the team

Pusamania Borneo v Persib 0-0 2,760
Two games, two points if the report card for both sides after this 0-0 draw in East Kalimantan. Going into the game the question being asked in Bobotoh land was would Kim Jeffrey Kurniawan be in the starting line up after being singled by out by Persib fans after their 1-1 draw with Sriwijaya. We, start he did and the world didn't end.
Now will Dejan Antonic be under the microscope? Two points from two games isn't what the demanding Persib support want and it doesn't matter the quality of the opponent. Persib are a side in transition and teams aren't built overnight but that doesn't concern the supporters too much. They want a team built before they go to bed so they can dream of more glory.
Yet look at their team and it is hard to see them struggle for too long. In the cold light of day it doesn't look the best of starts but come the end of the season Persib may look back on this as a point earned. Not many teams will come to Samarinda and pick up a point as Antonic said after the match. 'Every team that comes here finds it difficult to steal a point because Borneo are a good team and have a new coach.'

After the game Pusamania Borneo coach Dragan Djukanovic took his frustrations to social media saying 'I'm in football for 30 years, but I never met such a robbery. Real score should be 2-3 goals different for Pusamania against champion Persib but this is Indonesia???' His reaction was no doubt in part after claims for a penalty were turned down by the ref which was a bit of a surprise!

Why such a small crowd for such a high profile game? Pusamania's media officer told me it was a long weekend which affected the attendance.

Gresik United v Perseru 1-1 (OG; Gakou Amadou) 10,100

I had a poor feed so wasn't able to watch all the game but Perseru surprisingly took the lead before an OG saved a point for the home side. The highlight for me was when a Perseru player went down like he had been shot in a bid to waste time, some players don't seem to be aware of injury time but there you go, and on rushed the stretcher bearers. 

In their haste to get him off the field they bundled the player on, lifted the stretcher and the player promptly fell off. TV cameras and Indonesia then saw the wonderful sight of a Perseru official swing a punch at one of the hapless medics. Oh joy...Indonesian football is back!
