There may have been people out there ready to write off Tampines Rovers chances in the AFC Cup after Kitchee went to Jalan Besar and hit them 5-0 in the first group stage game.

After they travelled to Myanmar and were beaten 3-1 by Nay Pyi Taw they were ready for the last rites out in eastern Singapore for the team that plays in western Singapore.

Tampines Rovers retained the title on another tense ending
Seriously, if we look back at the precedents that led to this situation at Jalan Besar Stadium this evening, it wasn't meant to be in this manner.

Couple of messing up here and there by Tampines Rovers, the defending champions landed themselves to this inevitable plight against an impressive makeshift Harimau Muda, who were crippled with a number of notable absentees.

Still The Most Exciting League In The Region

The maths are, to coin a phrase Martin Tyler uses all too rarely, a piece of piss. Tampines Rovers are four points clear of nearest challengers DPMM and have just a game left, against Harimau Muda on 1 November.

The title could be theirs before then. DPMM, who won at Woodlands last night 2-1, play Hougang United this coming Wednesday at Hougang Stadium.

Stags Make Hard Work Of Lions

Jakarta Casual at related • 0 views
It's not been the best of starts for SLeague champions Tampines Rovers but they are slowly dragging themselves back up to the top part of the table. Coming from behind and needing an own goal to overcome Young Lions may not be the chosen method of securing three points but that's what they had to do last night but they won't be grumbling too much.

Ahmad Fahmie's second half effort "Kena Tiang" (hit the upright)To Tampines Rovers, Kitchee SC of Hong Kong had proven to be a tough proposition with their Catalan-inspired style of play in both's second meetup in the AFC Cup Group F preliminaries.

The swift passing with the movement on and off the ball by the current Hong Kong Division One table-toppers had definitely placed them on a much favourable position to break the deadlock in the first half, if not for the heroics of Croatian custodian Sasa Dreven on several occasions.

Stags' in danger of continental elimination

Tampines Rovers' continental campaign is in danger of not having themselves crossing the AFC Cup group stages for the first time since their participation with 1-0 defeat to Malaysian club side Terengganu FA at JBS.

A horrific start to the game when Tampines's' custodian Sasa Dreven and defender Benoit Croissant gifted Terengganu FA's Joseph Kalang Tie a perfect gift when the duo's miscommunication resulted an one-nil lead in less than five from the kick-off.

Still yet to clear the mandatory beep test which the ace midfielder failed earlier of the day for the eighth time, the decision left many puzzled over the decision by Stags' coach Steven Tan.

Where has the filling gone for Home United "sandwich" ??"Two pieces of toasts without fillings in the middle" as what it sums up Home United performance in their season curtain-raiser against defending S.League champions Tampines Rovers in the Charity Shield match at JBS.

The void left by Valery Hiek was clearly illustrated in the goal conceded in less than five minute how the once stout brick-like Protectors' defense was fully exploited by Stags' new signing Davor Piskor with not follow up from Lionel Lewis' narrowing of angle from near distance.

SLeague Revamp

It's been another exciting season in the SLeague with the title race not being decided until the last game of the season. The penultimate game between Home United and Tampines Rovers saw the Stags win 1-0; they went into their last game knowing three points would be enough. They won 5-0 to secure their first title in six years.

Ahmad Latif's goal just after the hour mark means that the SLeague won't be decided until Sunday when both Home United and Tampines Rovers play their final game of the season.
You could say it's advantage Tampines as they have a narrow one point lead going into Crunch Sunday (hey, ESPN do it all the time) but Home United have the superior goal difference.

Hang on to your seat....

The Best Team In The SLeague

I have been most remiss in my coverage of the SLeague in recent weeks and I do apologise for that. I hope to take some games in before the end of the season though.
So how do we stand as we enter the final furlong? I think it's fair to say it's a two horse race as the table shows;
1 - Home United 29 22 2 5 72-28 682 - Tampines Rovers 29 21 3 5 60-23 66
Four games remaining and a two point difference make for another exciting climax to the SLeague.

Undoubtedly, the most successful coach in Tampines Rovers Football Club since the inception of the S.League in 1996 - Vorawan Chitavanich had stepped down as the club's Technical Director and decided to head home to Thailand.

The timing of his departure could not have come to a rather bumpy timing when the Stags are facing sticky patches of late after ACL injuries to star players such as 'keeper Hassan Sunny and defender Park Yo Seb that effectively rule them out of the rest of the campaign.
