Muang Thong's Three In Four

Muang Thong United won the Thai Premier League a few days back but hey, things move slowly in Kampung Casual these days as you may have noticed.

With one game remaining Muang Thong remain unbeaten and sit 16 points clear of Chonburi. Now unless Muang Thong go and do something daft that incurs a substantial loss of points  they are the champions for the third time in four years.

Last season they were brushed aside by the Buriram Newin Rocks PEA as they steamrollered to the TPL. In fact I always felt last season Muang Thong and the other teams kind of rolled over and allowed Newin and his merry men to tickle their tunnies for a season. Nothing else explains the appointment of Robbie Fowler as coach for the last part of the season.

Buriram, now with United as part of their name, are fourth 29 points behind the champions having lost seven games this season so far. I guess they wanted to concentrate on the AFC Champions League.

One relegation spot is up for grabs. TTM and BBCU are down while Thai Port and Chainat are in a race to avoid the drop. Chainat, who only came up last season, defeated the mysterious Wuachon 4-2 while Thai Port lost 2-1 at home to the champions last time out.

In their crucial last games Chainat are at home to Army United while Thai Port host Chonburi.

UPDATE - been advised Thai Port aleady relegated. It seems Chainat had a better head to head.
