Advantage Government In Football Power Play

Despite the fine talk coming from the PSSI who said the Indonesia Super League would carry on regardless, it is the government, through the Ministry of Youth and Sports who have taken the lead.

No ISL games were played over the weekend in a clear victory for the people who, one imagines, are responsible for young people in Indonesia leading healthy lives.

The government followed up that early success with a massacre yesterday. Of 20 games scheduled to be played on the opening day of the new Divis Utama campaign, only one went ahead with Persikad overcoming Persires 3-1. That game probably slipped through the net because no one has a scooby where either team comes from anymore!

The ISL clubs have a chance to claw back some pride later today, Monday, when they have been invited to attend a meeting at the Ministry of Youth and Sports amid talk they would boycott the chat fest. Arema and Persebaya have not been invited.

At least Persib and Persipura have some AFC Cup action to look forward to this week; for the rest of the club only uncertainty.

Meanwhile FIFA continue to do nothing...
