No idea really, all of their stuff is in Thai and on Facebook and I don't have the time at the moment to wade through and translate it all.

Waiting for the start of the season, friendlies are not worth the drive!

Do you know if you have 2 teams now though, and if you do, what league the B team will be playing in?

Again no idea - you're welcome to wade through all of the Thai spiel on farcebook if you really need this info.

Will only know more when we actually go there for the first game of the season.

I see Hua Hin City are travelling to Prachuap on the 17th Jan to play a pre-season friendly.
Surprise, surprise - Prachuap have cancelled. That's twice in 6 months they've done this. Last time they couldn't play because it rained. I think there must be snow forecast Wednesday. I guess the old wounds haven't healed yet :?

The friendlies are not important. They need to focus on the imminent start of the premier division.

They need friendlies to get the team paying as a unit. The quality of the opposition does not matter, they need somebody to interfere with everything they've done on the practice field. To ignore this important factor of preparation means they will have to learn and adapt in real time, and the learning process can be expensive, if they've got it wrong.

Ignoring the need to play competitive matches is NOT preparing for the start of the premier division.

I wouldn't worry though, I'd expect them to turn up to every other practice match.

It could just be a Hua Hin thing - not much went well the last time we met, best focus on other teams/matches.

Looking forward to this season and getting to the games, I missed a lot last year due to the UK trip - it was one of the best seasons PFC have had.

Surely, the best season they've had, at the higher level, etc.

The second cancellation in quick time has initiated a lot of hate messages locally, with photos of your psycho Chairman leading the riots coming to the fore again.

I don't know why, but Prachuap have invited Hua Hin on the 24th now. Odds on that being cancelled?

As said above I'm not bothered at all, it isn't important and will only end up in another fight if Hua Hin's psychotic players cant control themselves. I don't know why you bother to bring all of that shit up again.

The only match I'm interested in is the first one of the season. Strange that it has been posted on the 9th since that is a Friday and they never play on a Friday - I suspect it will be the 10th.

It's brought up because many. many people here are still disgusted that your Chairman is still in place. It still hurts that he was allowed to get away with it. It won't be important to you, but it is supposedly important to your Chairman who claims to be trying to re-build bridges. If it happens a 3rd time, we'll know the truth.

Psychotic players? Are Hua Hin's players the only ones ever to stick in a sly elbow? Nobody denies Owusu could be over the top, He was playing for Nonthaburi last season, and hadn't changed. However, Hua Hin's President didn't feel the need to lead a riot to attack the Nonthaburi players, putting some of them in hospital though. I'd hate to think what might have happened had you lost that day.

The 9th is the date set for the first day of the season. Maybe there's a showcase game to start the season.
