Live from the changing room

One of the little quirks of Indonesia's coverage of football is the access camera crews have to the changing room.

These unfurnished rooms centre around the coach with a white board explaining what to do second half while the players sit on the tiled floor looking on disinterestedly.

No lockers, no benches these spartan rooms are nothing like what my pub team had back home, I think many lack showers! Certainly Persija Jakarta have a club house far from the stdium where they get changed and shower after the game.

You can't help but wonder what the new breed of managers would say about his star players sitting on their arses for 15 minutes during a game.

i'd love to see the same thing happening in the premiership - imagine ferguson's hair dryer live on tv. that'd be something else!
