Shine On You Crazy Diamond Walls: Port Play Kamphaeng Phet in Friendly TODAY


Following yesterday’s defeat at Suphanburi, Port have, somewhat at the last minute, announced a friendly against T3 side Kampheng Phet FC, known to their friends as the Diamond Walls. No idea what a Diamond Wall is, but Mme Pang probably has one in her apartment.

We assume the match has been arranged to give the powers that be one final look at the respective merits of messrs Jadue, Asdrubal and possibly Suarez before Port finalise their farang roster for the second leg of the season, so expect lots of smouldering Latin stares and shouts of “puta” as the Chilean and the two Spaniards face off for a place in the T1 squad.

As for the Diamond Walls, we know little about them other than that they were promoted from T3 North last season, and they have an amusingly-named striker called Phupha. Will Phupha scoop up a few goals, or will the Diamonds be a girl’s best friend and go easy on La Pang’s boys?

Find out for yourselves at the PAT at 17:00 this evening. Admission is free, beer amnesty applies etc etc.
