I was looking at the league table, and see that relegation is for the bottom 6 teams. How does that work when only 4 teams get promoted?

The Thai league setup is confusing to say the least ... maybe D1 gets smaller every year!

The TV schedules are also annoying, not every match is shown on TV and they don't advise which are until close to the start so planning to watch it often leads to disappointment.

Another away draw leaves PFC languishing at 17th - still looking for that first win of the season.

Yes, maybe they're trying to expand the lower leagues, but losing a third of teams each season seems very harsh. Even more so when you have to win your league and be successful in the Champions League lottery to get back up again.

What was last night's result? I think Google Translate said they won 1 - 0, but not really convinced the translation was good.

The FA Cup game was cancelled with no notice.

Excellent result at last nights game, the Prachuap team we know and love from last year were back in form again playing some nice fluid football against strong opponents. Hopefully they have now gelled together and will play like this from now on. Sadly the refereeing again was very questionable with the whistle being blown at almost every challenge.

It was good to have many of the Bangsaphan supporters group back in attendance also.

We are now mid-table: http://www.smmsport.com/score/competiti ... tition=169

Any idea where to get reliable TV schedules? Would like to show the Sukhothai v Prachuap game tonight @ Country Road but cant find any site indicating what is being shown.

This thread seems to have come to a grinding halt. A real life example of only singing when you're winning? :twisted:

Been on the road with little time to update it. The last home result was was a 1-1 draw which in reality we were lucky to get, PTT Rayong were a stronger side, they hit the bar 3 times and Prachuap were pretty lackluster up front - we badly need a decent striker.

The most farcical part was when Prachuap was awarded a penalty for a handball incident - the Rayong keeper and pretty much the whole team walked off the pitch in protest. Now where I come from the ref's word is final and a team that behaves like this should really be punished.

Thai football is still a bit of a circus and will never really be taken seriously when stuff like this goes on!

I saw that happen in Hua Hin games 3 times last season (only once by Hua Hin mind) and one time this season. As you say, a bit of a circus :?
