Arcan Iurie's Wry Smile

Now I am not suggesting for a moment former Persita coach Arcan Iurie felt any schandenfreude yesterday. As a professional, that is an emotion best steered away from.

But, in the sanctity of his hotel room last night, he can be forgiven a wry smile or two.

Earlier in the day, Persita lost 2-1 at home to Barito Putra. Rizky Riporal and James Koko Lomell had given the visitors the lead before Riquelme hit a penalty three minutes from the end of the game to give Persita some dignity.

Meanwhile, Iurie's new club, Persepam MU, beat Persiram. They were sent on their way with a penalty from veteran striker Zaenal Arif and while Errol Ethicus pulled one back just after half time, Jose Gonzales hit a late, late winner.

Victory for Persiram, and they would have been unlikely leaders of the eastern conference, at least for a few hours.

The attendance was give as 9,230...a tad optimistic I feel!
