Suphanburi B FC 3 – 2 Hua Hin City FC

Before we departed Hua Hin, I think even though the most optimistic of us were not expecting too much from a high flying Suphanburi, who are currently 7 points clear at the top of the league. However, we knew our team were getting stronger with each match, and they would give 110% regardless of the result. We are not the best team in the league yet, so that is all we can ask.

When we arrived at a very hot, beautiful Suphanburi Provincial Stadium, we were greeted with the news that because it was an International weekend, the Suphanburi A team did not have a match, so they would be fielding 8 of their first team squad. Personally, with promotion out of the question for this season, I saw this as a great chance to see our side play competitive football against one of Thailand’s top sides.

We could see from the pre-match warm up that we were not playing against the young kids who had featured in the 2 previous matches this season.

The first half started, and I was wondering what the t1 hype was all about. Hua Hin were matching Suphanburi in every quarter.

Suphanburi broke the deadlock with a penalty. It was an unfortunate foul, and a well converted goal – no complaints.

Not long after, Amos broke through the Suphanburi defence, and equalised with a well-positioned shot. This was encouraging, because our centre-forward did this 2 more times as the game progressed against a top notch defence. He scored one more, and hit the crossbar with the third.

The Amos equaliser unfortunately woke Suphanburi up. The t1 professionals just knocked the game up a couple of gears and scored a couple of beautiful goals. Their second was just magic. Their No.20 seemed to have the ball glued to his boot as he turned a couple of times inside the Hua Hin penalty area. Surely one of the prettiest goals in the league this season.

Hua Hin came out for the 2nd half with their heads high, despite being 2 goals in arrears. I think they outplayed the t1 opposition. When Amos snatched his second, the difference this time was Suphanburi couldn’t turn it up a gear. Hua Hin were in the ascendancy, and were unlucky not to share the points.

League position is not so important for the rest of this season, although we will improve. The players will have learned an awful lot from this game, and we should thank Suphanburi for the opportunity, although I doubt they see it the same way – at least 4 of their stars picked up yellow cards.

A moral victory.

We still maintain 8th position

Very late with this. I'm sorry, but I've had my 2 most hectic days since moving to Thailand.

Look E-San 1 - 1 Hua Hin City

The plan was to get 3 points and advance to 7th place in the league. Reality was gaining 1 point, and dropping to 9th place.

Everything started well - our supporter's bus turned out to be truly executive travel. We really thought we'd hit the jackpot when this baby turned up. In fact, we hesitated to board, thinking it was the wrong bus.

Then the fun began. It turns out this wasn't the bus that was ordered, but the driver was doing a favour for a mate - no problem, we can enjoy the extra luxury I think. The the driver starts to ask, where are we going? Nobody had given him a destination, he didn't know he was going to Bangkok, and could he borrow 500 Baht for the toll booths. This was going to be an adventure. I did manage to explain the name of the university where the stadium was located.

So off we go, and it was a lovely bus and a lovely ride.......... until we entered the toll roads. He honestly didn't know where he was going. He stopped several times on the V of various junctions to phone to find out if we fork left or right. We weren't rear ended, so we could see the funny side.

Eventually, we got in the general area, and I knew the way. No, he wasn't going to listen to a Farang who had been here 11 weeks earlier, he was talking on the phone to somebody in another town. He drove straight past the University, and took us to the International Volleyball match that was on. There was a lot of traffic there, and he caused absolute mayhem doing a 15 point turn with his monster bus.

He headed back towards the ground. Turn left I say, which was translated into Thai. No, he stopped again and phoned his friend in another town for directions. This happened about 5 more times in the distance of less than a mile. We could even see the stadium, but his friend said NO. We sat down in the stadium, 15 minutes before kick off. He just didn't want to believe a Farang knew the way :?

Anyway, you guys aren't reading this for details of our magical mystery tour. There was a football match to watch/enjoy.

The player news was that Roland was still not available for selection, and Ali M had injured his leg in the pre-match warm-up. This left us a bit weak at the back. This was compounded just before half-time when one of the deputising centre-halfs went off injured. In a quick re-organisation, leading goal scorer Ali G was moved to centre-half, and Dorian was brought on to play just behind Amos.

Hua Hin got off to the most fantastic start, when within 3 minutes, a loose ball fell to an unmarked Wuttichai's feet on the edge of the 6 yard box. He blasted the ball home.

The game was spoiled because I think the referee had a new whistle. The ref wasn't the usual plonker Thai ref, making stupid decisions, but he wouldn't let the game flow. Because Hua Hin were the better footballers, the constant start/stop game really suited Look E-San.

Look E-San equalised at around the 20 minute mark, after some awful defensive play by Hua Hin.

The rest of the game was played out with Hua Hin being the better side, but unable to capitalise on their better football.

Unfortunately, losing 2 points saw us drop to 9th in the league after IPE Samut Sakhon pulled off a big shock at Muangkan.

The Kanchanaburi Express will be on the road again this week taking supporters to Sunday's Muangkan Utd vs Hua Hin City match.

Away support has waned over the last 2 games, and the President is seriously considering the value in continuing the free service. For obvious reasons, he does not see the value in paying for a half full luxury bus.

If you like football, why not give it a try? To book your free seat, simply phone Khun Kaew on 095-7513243.

If nothing else, you would be visiting one of Thailand's show piece stadiums, the Kleeb Bua Stadium, with the backdrop of the Kanchanaburi hills, it's a fantastic sight. There's nothing not to like.

We now have a departure time for Sunday's bus - 10am from the clock tower. We should arrive early enough to take in a little of the town's culture e.g. Bridge over the River Kwai or War Cemetery before the match. Maybe have lunch while gazing over the river.
