joel griffiths you are fantastic. not the first time hes scored against an aussie team either.

like the commentator, i also wonder why Pim hasnt chosen him. we are definitely not blessed in the strikers department so anything will do.

Man, Ricardo Oliveira really has lost it. Hardly did a thing as his Al Jazira side got thumped by an Iranian side (could have been 10-1) which had a Senegalese and yes a Serbian player! they're really everywhere

Ahmad Jamshidian was the star man though. Surprised to read he isn't a NT regular

well Arema got a point at home against that Chinese side so I guess it's mission accomplished.

Wonder who'll qualify now for the next ACL with 2 leagues.

Wim Rijsbergen gave a grumpy interview in the NRC about his stay so far in Macassar. He especially doesn't like the lack of ambition among the players. That said, he's always wanted to work in Asia or Australasia so he's enjoying it despite the obvious problems

He seems like a passionate old man the couple of times I saw him on tv during PSM games.. Always shouting, showing his disgusts when his players did something stupid, that kind of stuff..:pp Hopefully they will learn a lot from his coaching.

Next year I'm guessing they would give 1 spot to the ACL qualification for the IPL winner instead of ISL runner-up, but nobody knows for sure.. I still have my hopes up that Arifin Panigoro, the man behind the IPL, will be the next FA Chairman btw.

Last time I checked, their defence seemed pretty solid in the domestic league, lol.

But yeah, yesterday they were shockingly bad, especially in the first half. The players looked completely lost in the pitch and I think every through pass resulted in a goal-scoring opportunity.. Not good! :D
And the lame penalty at the end.. :howler:

Oh well, at least they won't be winning the league again this year.

i dont like this starnge concept of dividin the continent into eastern and western conferencez or wateva.any chance all of asia gets to have a unified competition rite from the start?? that will really make thngs interesting and will b better for the game i feel with greater exposure for all clubs and plyrz

I guess they did it for the traveling convenience of the participating teams, but yeah that would make the competition more interesting. Al Ain is the odd one out in Group F with 3 East Asian teams. :pp

The Thai side do it again :eek: against the multi millionaires of Canton.

Heard Buriram got the same coach who got a Thai side into the CL final 10 years ago. He's doing his magic again!
