Chainat Hornbill FC 2-1 Port FC

 

After last night’s gutless, embarrassing show by Port at Chainat, I’ve decided to show as much effort, commitment and respect for my audience in this week’s match report as the players did last night. So here it is, accompanied by a pic of two players who, whilst they may not have been as naturally talented as some of the current side, always showed heart and knew what it meant to wear the Port shirt.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Sandpit Man of the Match: Tana

It was a shock to see that Tana, who appeared to have left the club late last season to become a policeman, was part of yesterday’s matchday squad. It was an insult to underused players like Terens and Bodin that he was brought on ahead of them. And it was an embarrassment to the rest of the team that he was Port’s best player on the night and had our only shot on goal. Millions spent on new players and we’re still relying on Tana? What a joke.

    I like Rattanai but he is not as good as Worawut, is he still injured, what’s happening here? We should give the 5-4-1 another shot with backs like Kevin and Selanon.

      I actually prefer Rattanai, much better at handling crosses than Worawut and a better shot-stopper, and I also believe he’s Mme Pang’s favourite…so there you go. Agree the 5-4-1 worked well in the first half against Buriram, but you’d need to change the striker – Boskovic hasn’t got the workrate or commitment to play as a lone striker.

      Seems to be out of favour with the coach at the moment for some reason. But given that we will almost certainly have a change of coach soon, I hope he’ll be getting more game time. Nice guy & always gives 100%
