Batavia Union Move To Bekasi

Jakarta Casual at related • 0 views
Batavia Union's home game with PSM will now be played at the Patriot Stadium in Bekasi on Sunday. It was originally scheduled for Soementri Brojonegoro on Saturday but that would have clashed with Persitara's home game on the same day and of course they both share the same support!
Batavia Union, who don't seem to have a nickname yet so I have to keep repeating Batavia Union, hope eventually to use Kamal Muara Stadium for their home games.

NJ Mania's Divided Loyalty

Jakarta Casual at related • 0 views
NJ Mania are the lads who followed Persitara Jakarta Utara. A rowdy, boisterous bunch they now also follow Batavia Union in the breakaway Liga Primer Indonesia.
I saw Persitara play Persiraja the pther day and there was a healthy turn out of NJ Mania even though the core, them with the drums, turned up halfway through the first half.

LPI Pre Season

Jakarta Casual at related • 0 views
Finally the alternate Indonesian league, the Liga Primer Indonesia, has announced its Pre Season tournament after many delays. And, insert drumroll, it starts today!
After 18 teams initially joined, or was it 17, only 13 have joined the Pre Season but there is a promise of 7 more for when the season kicks off in January.

Batavia Union Or Persitara?

Jakarta Casual at related • 0 views
Liga Primer Indonesia candidate side Batavia Union won their first friendly beating the Army team, PS TNI, 2-1 at Tugu Stadium in North Jakarta. Veteran Javier Roca scored one of the goals.
Roca and his team mates looked to be wearing a Persitara kit for the game at the home stadium of Persitara.

Pasoepati - Loyal Supporters

Jakarta Casual at related • 0 views
They had a season which can best be described as crap. Couldn't score, couldn't win, couldn't stay up. Yet Persis Solo fans stuck by their team as they got relegated from the Indonesia Premier League...these are their home attendances for the 2009/2010 season.

Their average attendance of 11,994 would have been much higher but for the Gresik United game.

Jeonbuk v Persipura 8-0

Scored two, conceded 29 in five games and totally pointless. We can call it a learning curve, we can call it an embarrassment. I wonder which one the AFC would call it?

Persebaya v Persitara 3-2 (Andi Odang 2, Patricio Morales; Tantan, Prince Bello Kabir)

With five games left Persitara are 12 points from safety.

Persiba Bantul

Jakarta Casual at related • 1 view
There are several teams in the Indonesia Premier League who attract good sized crowds, among them Persis, Persikabo and PSIS. But Persiba Bantul have announced they averaged 11,800 at their home games in the just finished season. That's better than Persiwa, Persitara and Pelita Jaya among others.

Persikabo could rue dropped 3 points

Jakarta Casual at related • 0 views
It's not often one of the many cases backlogged at FIFA gets acted upon. But Persikabo could well rue the day they didn't do what they were supposed to have done, I don't know what they didn't do or what they should have done (apologies to non native speakers for that!) that led to them being reported to FIFA.

Persib v Persema 4-0 (Gonzales 3, Moriera)

Yesterday afternoon Persija conceded the title with a gutless display that showed lack of fight, conviction and desire. Persema, 2 down at the time, showed more of those three qualities in first half injury time than Persija did all game.

Persidafon's Experience Not Showing

Jakarta Casual at related • 0 views

Newly promoted Persidafon have become the ISL's whipping boys. Back to back thumpings, 5-0 at Sriwijaya, 5-2 at Persiram, have left them 15th in the 18 team league with nine points from their opening 11 games. Of concern to Sergei Dubrovin will be a defence that has leaked 30 goals in that time; an ignominy they share with fellow Papuans Persiram.

Mitra Kukar's Good Start

Jakarta Casual at related • 0 views
Mitra Kukar come from the east of Kalimantan or the island formerly known as Borneo. They have enjoyed a flying start to the season with six wins from their opening seven games. Their only reverse came in a mad 20 minutes away to fellow Group 2 challengers when they shipped four goals.
And they have been the only goals conceded all season.

And there's more...

Just picked up a copy of a Bangkok based expat magazine called The Big Chilli and guess what? They run a regular column detailing the fortunes of two of the capital city's teams, Muang Thong United and Bangkok United.
Wonder of we can get the same in a Jakarta based magazine? Say one person covering Persija and another covering Persitara?

Behind closed doors

This weekend's Jakarta derby will be played behind closed doors. Persitara v Persija has been shifted to Bung Karno Stadium, from Persitara's usual Soemantro Brojonegoro for some reason...what's the point when no bugger can watch the game anyway?
Police are worried about the risk of crowd trouble between the two sets of supporters.

Pelita Jaya v Sriwijaya 3-2 (Supardi, Redouanne Barkaoui, Warwan Mustafa Sayedeh; Richard Obiora, Pavil Solomin)
What more to say about Sriwijaya? Going forward they are one of the best teams in the country but at the back it's another story. International goalkeeper, international full backs, international central defenders.

Jakarta Derby Postponed

Jakarta Casual at related • 0 views
Sunday's derby between Persitara and Persija has been called. The game had been switched to Bung Karno Stadium, nominally Persija's home ground, because Persitara's Soemantri Brojonegoro was considered too small.

But with no security clearance released for Bung Karno the game would have had to go ahead without spectators meaning Persitara would have had to stump up the costs of hiring the more expensive stadium and they were obviously reluctant to do so.

Does the alternative Indonesian league have legs?

Jakarta Casual at related • 0 views
Stories about a new league in Indonesia, called the Indonesia Premier League, still circulate even though most Super League clubs are moving to distance themselves from the idea after the PSSI have said they will not support it.
About the only clubs to have expressed interest in the idea are Persitara and Persiraja banda Aceh and, no disrespect to either club, sponsors are not going to be falling over themselves to throw money at clubs like them.

There hasn't been a whole lot to smile about for Persitara fans though things have improved somewhat over the second half of the season but one shining light has been the hard working Tantan. Signed pre season from Persikab he struggled alongside Prince Bello Kabir in the first half of the season but blossomed once Diego Mendieta came in and gave him a freer role.
