Chantaburi Heading For The Drop

Jakarta Casual at related • 0 views
I'm going to go out on a limb here and suggest that Chantaburi are favourites to get relegated from Division One in Thailand. I know, it's not often I go out on a limb like that but I just get that feeling that their days are numbered in Thailand's second tier.

Never seen them play so can't say I have any special insight.

The centre-half, who can also play at full-back, signed from Stoke City this week after it came apparent he was not part of Tony Pulis' plans.

With Forest, who hope to win promotion and be back amongst the Betfair Premier League tips in the near future, now under new mega-rich ownership in the form of Kuwait's Al Hasawi family, fans could have been fantasising over big-money signings flooding into the club.

Morning all,

inevitably, now that the Euro dust has settled, the lack of real news means focus turns on the Arsenal story that's easy to write about: Robin van Persie. If you're short on copy, you can pretty much just make something up and it'll sound feasible.

So if a newspaper says Arsene Wenger is planning to talk to van Persie, well, it's entirely reasonable because of course he is.

Dempsey's last-minute transfer to Tottenham from Fulham ended a roller coaster ride of a last month, one that saw him ostracized from Fulham as he pushed hard for a transfer.

Nothing quite like watching your team score six goals is there? No, it wasn't an entirely stress free experience for the Seattle Sounders, but that 6-2 win over Chivas USA sure was fun to watch. Fredy Montero scoring his first-career MLS hat trick wasn't bad either.

Aaron and I spend quite a lot of time going through the many highlights involved in that one.

Post-Match Chalkboard: Improvement In Possession

Hot Time In Old Town at related • 0 views

I recently read somewhere (I wish I could remember where so that I could link to it) that OPTA uses the amount of passes in a game to determine possession. This surprised me. Basing possession on passing has the potential to produce some skewed results. The most obvious argument against this is that a team that uses the short passing game is going to have a larger portion of possession regardless of the actual amount of time that they truly have possession.
