What we’re 99% sure will be Port’s final pre-season friendly takes place on Saturday 4 February at the PAT, with a KO time of 5pm. The opponents are BBCU, aka Big Bang Chula Utd, who not only have a great official name, but also a great nickname – the Pink Panthers. What with lions, swat cats and now panthers, the PAT is fast becoming a mecca for “cat fanciers”, though having been bitten by one this week & spent the morning at Kluaynamthai Hospital as a result, I do not include myself in their number.
Anyway, we hope that Jadet will treat this friendly like a proper game and give his first-choice XI a proper run-out, to give us a firmer idea of how Port are likely to shape up in 2017. See you at the PAT on Saturday!
