Chiangrai United Football Academy

For many boys a dream!

The academy is under supervision of Lehonos dos Santos, the successful

Brasilian coach of the Thai National Team Under 16. This team participated

in the qualification round for the Asian Football Confederation Championship

this year and ended first in its group. Only against Laos a point was lost.

Among others Australia was beaten (2-1). The finals will take place next year.

During the month December Chiangrai United organizes this academy for two

age groups, namely 7 - 12 years and 13 - 17 old.

For both groups there are two choices concerning time:

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 17.00 to 18.30

Periode 2 to 30 December, 26 hours total.

Every Saturday and Sunday from 8.00 to 10.00

Periode 3 December to 1 January, 20 hours total

During the academy the boys will learn basic knowledge about the elements of the game,

its rules, fair play, tactics and teamwork. The technical side will focus on the development

of skills and ball controle.

Boys with special talents have the chance to be accepted by the youth department of CRUtd,

so participation can in theory even lead to a professional football career.

During last month there have been clinics in several areas of the province with the purpose

to promote football among youngsters. These clinics and the first official football academy

of Chiang Rai will be the seeds of the football school that in near future will be founded

by Chiangrai United FC.

So if you have a son, you might decide to give him a chance. But you might also be willing to

sponsor a boy that is not your son :)

Maybe your family or the teacher at school can help you further.

As it is the first academy ever in Chiang Rai, the contribution is reduced from 1200 to 950 Baht.

The first 100 registrations will hold a bonus: a Chiangrai United package with a value of 540 Baht.

At this moment the location hasn't been decided upon, but it will be in town.

Thanks MahNuad for your reaction!

In the mean time also the location is known. The football academy will

take place on the pitches of The Arena, the seven-to-seven artificial

grasscourts next to Big C in front of the driving range that you might

have seen many times from the parking place of Big C.

I just sent you an e-mail with the telephone numbers of the

Chiangrai United fanshop about five hundred meters north

of Den Ha at the left side (the 'old Chiang Mai road'

or Thanon Dong Ma Da), about hundred meter before the

old Christian Churchyard at the right).

You can't miss it: The logo of the club is omnipresent!

At this shop you can register.

In case of coming down the hill from the Chiang Rai Saddlebags

shop where now also the Sausage King products are sold it is

to the right and then after hundred meters at your left.

As it is the policy of the owners of this forum not to accept

that telephone numbers are published here, I just want to say

that everybody is welcome to send me a PM or an e-mail and I send

you the numbers where you can ask for more specific information..

And please everybody: Pass the information on to the fathers

that don't visit this forum.

This picture has been taken two years ago at an experimental clinic,

sorry for not having a more recent one :

Chiangrai United vs Bangkok Glass

Only six games left this season of which three at home:

Sunday November 27 against Bangkok Glass,

December 10 against Osotspa-Saraburi and the last one,

the thriller of the year, January 7 against PEA-Buriram.

So far no topper of the Thai Premier League managed to take home any

points from Chiang Rai. Muangthong, now in second position, lost 2 - 1

and Chonburi, in third position lost 4 - 3.

It will be interesting to see tomorrow if Chiangrai United manages to

take the full three points again, this time against the number four on

the list.

Last week at home Bangkok Glass didn't do better than a meager 0 - 0

against Pattaya United, a club that lost 3 - 1 here in Chiang Rai.

The last home game of Chiangrai United was the one against Chonburi,

maybe the best game of the year so far, that resulted in a win.

Rabbits welcome!

It was a very good game, of both sides.

BG took the lead after 12 minutes, but CRUtd came back

three minutes before tea (a penalty).

15 Minutes into the second half again a player of CRUtd

was floored within the penalty area and CRUtd scored also

this time from the 11 meter spot.

Twelve minutes before the end of ordinary time CRUtd

deserved its third penalty, but as the second was already

heavily and theatrically questioned by players and staff

of BG the referee chose not to award this one.

The second half was extended with 5 minutes extra time and

in the last ten seconds of this extra time BG scored the

equalizer, 2 - 2 ...

Great work of our Brasilian goalkeeper Alonso Carvalho, who

at least at two moments managed to avoid more serious damage

to our position on the table.

Chiangrai United is now holding the nineth position in the

Thai Premier league, but Sisaket and Thai Port played two

games less and could bridge the difference.

Hereby I want to nominate Brasilian Leandro Assumpção for the

honorable title of:

"Chiangrai Uniteds Johnny Rep"

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .post-6305-0-10053100-1322451651_thumb.jp

Leandros enormous speed and brilliant ball controle remembers

about Johnny. The way he drives his opponents completely crazy

with his ball ballet is incredible.

A beautiful player, a joy for the eye!

For those among you who don't know Johnny Rep:

He played many years in Ajax Amsterdam with legendary Johan Cruyff

and after that in French St. Etienne with Michel Platini, currently

president of UEFA.

He took part in two worldchampionship finals, 1974 in Western

Germany and 1978 in Argentina.

Alltogether he had not less than 42 times the orange shirt of the

Dutch National team around his shoulders.

It was a Chiangrai forum member, that asked him to put on an orange

shirt again, but this time not the one of the Dutch National Team

but of his own good old Chiangrai United!

Thanks Leandro, thanks Johnny!

Not being a total fanatic I don't know Johnny's rep, but I must have seen him on tv I guess playing with Johann Cruyff.

There was George Best, and then there was Johann Cruyff :-)

Thanks for the update.

RIP Duke!

'Duke', Chiangrai United's general manager, passed away.

Always happy and inspiring to everybody who met him.

He finished his studies at Chula last year and was since

a couple of months at work for CRUtd.

A tragical car accident took him away, 24 years old.

He was a man with a clear vision. One of his new projects

was the foundation of a football academy for Chiang Rai.

As Duke will live on in our memories, so will also his

thoughts and spirit in the future of our club.

After our fans die a few months ago from the bus crash i was hoping we'll never have to face the lost again. Yet today it started all over, to loose a great member of the family.

May he rest in peace. He will always be remember.

The game is over.

In the 23th minute Leontin Chitescu shot from about 25 meters out of a free kick

the first goal for Chiangrai United.

The ball went through the wall and one of the players of Thai Port touched it

sligtly, leaving the goaly without a chance.

In the two minutes extra time of the first half Thai Port came alongside.

It was also the end result, Thai Port versus Chiangrai United 1 - 1.

For the second time in eight days we lost two points in extra time...

All we can say is that Chiangrai United succesfully defended its nineth position

in the Thai premier league.

Leandro went down within the penalty area but the referee was more than twenty

meters away...

Osotspa Saraburi against Sisaket starts now. Only if Sisaket would win of Saraburi

this position could be threatened.

This game is not broadcasted. Pattaya Khon Kaen is (True Channel 69) and evenso

Phichit Siam Navy (NBT 11).

Chiangrai United versus Osotspa-Saraburi

This Sunday: Chiangrai United's last but one home game of the season!

+ + + + + + + + + + 18.00 at MFL University Stadium + + + + + + + + + +

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . post-6305-0-77300300-1323481243_thumb.jp

Osotspa-Saraburi (sponsored by M-150) has played 28 games so far and collected 43

points along the way. It holds now the fifth position in the Thai premier League.

Last week the team won at home against Sisaket 2 to 1. A week before that however,

away the team didn't come further than a 1 to 1 draw against Sriracha, a quite solid

relegation candidate, that has the dubious honour to play against merciless topper

PEA Buriram today (if you want to be a personal wittness of what could become a

Zagreb versus Lyon tragedy: true sport 2, channel 102 at 18.00).

Chiangrai United entered the pitch so far not less than 30 times already and managed

to get together a proud 30 points doing so, enough for holding the tenth position in

the Thai top league. The last two games, against Bangkok Glass and Thai Port ended

in a draw. Both times Chiangrai United lost the dearly needed two winning points in extra

time. Very sad, but undeniable true! It's in the line of expectations that Edvaldo 'Andy'

Pereira will stand inbetween the lines again, the striker that for unclear reasons got three

matches 'off' after his two yellow cards in the game against Thai Police.

By the way: The match Osotspa-Saraburi versus Chiangrai United, that was played

May 29 this year ended in a draw, 0 - 0.

The coach patatoes among us can see the match at home, probably at NBT channel 11.

All others are recommended to come early to the stadium. The picture below has been

taken two weeks ago (against Bangkok Glass) about a quarter of an hour before the game

started. The time that the fans were still walking in during the first quarter of the

game is definitely over; you are now one out of at least seven thousand that wants a seat!

Also the big stand at the opposite side and the extra stands that now almost are circling

the short ends of the field are almost totally occupied. So be in time!

(also the game against Bangkok Glass), not easy to find an empty seat 555!

Chiangrai United Football Academy

For many boys a dream!

The academy is under supervision of Lehonos dos Santos, the successful

Brasilian coach of the Thai National Team Under 16. This team participated

in the qualification round for the Asian Football Confederation Championship

this year and ended first in its group. Only against Laos a point was lost.

Among others Australia was beaten (2-1). The finals will take place next year.

During the month December Chiangrai United organizes this academy for two

age groups, namely 7 - 12 years and 13 - 17 old.

For both groups there are two choices concerning time:

Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 17.00 to 18.30

Periode 2 to 30 December, 26 hours total.

Every Saturday and Sunday from 8.00 to 10.00

Periode 3 December to 1 January, 20 hours total

During the academy the boys will learn basic knowledge about the elements of the game,

its rules, fair play, tactics and teamwork. The technical side will focus on the development

of skills and ball controle.

Boys with special talents have the chance to be accepted by the youth department of CRUtd,

so participation can in theory even lead to a professional football career.

During last month there have been clinics in several areas of the province with the purpose

to promote football among youngsters. These clinics and the first official football academy

of Chiang Rai will be the seeds of the football school that in near future will be founded

by Chiangrai United FC.

So if you have a son, you might decide to give him a chance. But you might also be willing to

sponsor a boy that is not your son :)

Maybe your family or the teacher at school can help you further.

As it is the first academy ever in Chiang Rai, the contribution is reduced from 1200 to 950 Baht.

The first 100 registrations will hold a bonus: a Chiangrai United package with a value of 540 Baht.

At this moment the location hasn't been decided upon, but it will be in town.

He came from Portland Oregon, where he played for the Portland Timbers

when they were still active in the second tier of the professional American

football pyramid. His name is Ojimi Gabriel "O.J." Obatola, born in

1987 in Lagos (Nigeria).

A brilliant player, somewhere remembering of our former Ghanese player

Adu Gyamfi, fast as a spear and always dangerous. Now he is forward of

Pattaya United and in that function he was the man of the evening

during the home-game of his team against Chiangrai United last Saturday.

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . post-6305-0-77706800-1324298185_thumb.jp

During the first half he did a beautiful act of 'chakkajan akaas' (air-bicycling)

as an overhead kick is called by our Thai friends. Simply a masterpiece, no

discussion about that and his second goal, in the second half, might not have

been as spectacular as the first one but certainly was a beauty of its own.

The game ended 3 - 0 in favor of the Dolphins, well deserved as they played

rather good. For that matter: Pattaya United's chairman is mr. Sontaya Kunplome

(not to be mistaken for his brother mr. Wittaya Kunplome, who is in charge of

another Thai premier League club, namely Chonburi FC or their brother mr. Ittiphol

Kunplome, the mayor of Pattaya or even with their sister Mrs. Sukumol Kunplome,

Thailands minister of Culture).

The biggest problem for the players of Chiangrai United wasn't the concerted efforts

of their opponents, but they were incredibly ill served by the referee of the match

who chose the center circle as his orientatien area. It seemed as if he never went

away from it for more than ten meters. This might have been the reason that he didn't

see the hands ball of the Pattaya player in front of an empty goal or the tackle with

which 'Boy' was floored within the eleven meter area. This tackle wasn't the only one

he missed, as the little video report below shows.

It could be considered understandable if those who wittnessed the game would have

arrived at the conclusion that he seemed to act as a 'home referee', but it is very

well possible that he didn't see what happened because he simply was too far away.

If a good referee, who tries to stay within fifteen meters of the ball, runs ten to

twelve kilometers during a game, he should have good oversight. This referee clearly

thought that six to seven kilometers would do. Really a pity that this had to happen.

It shouldn't happen in the Thai Premier League, it should happen nowhere!

Pattaya moved to the fifth position and Chiangrai United seems to be consolidating

the nineth position of the eightteen teams counting Thai Premier League.

Only Sisaket and Thai Port can still threaten this position as they played two resp

one game less.

Yesterday the Chiang Rai Arena football complex next to Big celebrated not only New Years Day

but also its first anniversary. All the participants in Chiangrai United's Youth Academy project

got a nice present (also their younger brothers were not forgotten as the picture shows).

Strolling back in this thread you will find more information about the youth project.
