Congratulations to Buriram FC

Recommended Posts

I don’t like Buriram FC but I must give them credit for consistent good teams, very nice stadium, and good club management.  Must be fun to be a Buriram fan. In reality I like Bangkok United and don’t understand why with their resources they are not on top every year.

Yes it's a pity the TPL..potential for a decent quality, exciting league to watch many issues to be addressed before it ever progesses.

 

1. Way too many teams without nearly enough quality players to fill them..12-14 teams not 18 !

2. A proper free to air coverage of (most games), better times slots ie. friday night, Sunday arvo game.

3. Season should run primarily thru dry season and shorten season, I think sept-feb would be best weather wise most areas, quality of game would quickly improve and crowds accordingly.

 

While I'm no football expert and more of a rugby man, the TPL strikes me a full of cronyism, old boys club milking it, wasting decent amounts of money and couldn't even run a noodle stand.

Here's hoping there's some changes for the better...

Wake Up,

I actually think Bangkok Utd are the most attractive team to watch in Thailand. As far as resources are concerned its simply down to the owners pocket. I don't know how much clubs get from True. I see that your team is currently averaging 3,000 people a game. Late payment of players is supposed to be rife. Last season Sisaket lost most of their foreign players and staff in the summer break due to non payment of salaries.

  League total 1,225,689 30,011 1,009 4,393 −4.6%

 

The money for FA and League cups round wins is frankly a joke. With the league dropping to 16 teams next season thus 5 being relegated this season, 3 up still, clubs have definitely cut back this season.

I think salary demands for Coelho was the reason Buriram did not take up an option to buy him. He was on loan from a Belgium club.

The other rule change occurring for next season is that up to 3 ASEAN players will be allowed on the pitch, currently 1. So with 1 Asian Conference, 3 Asean and 3 Farang (for want of a better term) you could conceivably only have 4 Thai players on the pitch per side. Thailand did well to get into the last Asian Conference World Cup qualifying but the lake of decent strikers and central defenders was very obvious. Which positions do clubs fill with farangs ? Virtually all Thai Premier League clubs fill these positions with primarily Brazilian and African players. Big and strong.

 

Right that's enough from me. The current poor general organisation of Thai football annoys me. A few years ago it was doing well but well reminds one of what has happened to Thai Air. BTW Thailand,s best FIFA ranking was as high as 43 in 1998. Currently 111 but up from a low of 165 in 2014 which I think was due to political problems at the time.

Definitely not the Premier league and not worth even following.

Next year you will see Chiang Mai FC up amongst those....we play Khonkaen this weekend with only a win or draw required for promotion.....if we lose then Khonkaen rise up instead. So, should be a thriller of a game, live on TV I believe but of course, I'll be there in person 🍻

Best of luck. I suppose your local derby next season could be Chiang Brazil, sorry Rai.
