I Will Follow: The Port FC Instagram League Table

 

Back in the old days of Bovril, half-time oranges and jockstraps, we rated footballers using such vague, inaccurate criteria as goals scored, medals won, international caps and so on. Thankfully in the digital age we have a much more precise metric to assess just how good footballers are – Instagram followers. So with the assistance of my lovely wife (and keen Instagrammer) Linny, I’ve ranked Port’s players based on how many people are following them on Instagram (with the exceptions of Kim and Chakrit, neither of whom appear to be on Instagram).

Note that all of these figures are dwarfed by our fragrant chairwoman Madam Pang, who has over 350,000 followers.

 

Nurul – 176,195

The wee fella has clearly benefitted from national team action, and is by far the most-followed Port star with over twice as many followers as his nearest challenger. Here he is celebrating with the time-honoured cunnilingus gesture.

 

Pakorn – 81,893

The Midfield Monk may not be a national team player yet but he’s Port’s second most followed player. Here he is with his mum. Awwwww.

 

Siwakorn – 72,476

Completing Port’s top 3 is yellow card collector and unlikely midfield hard man Siwakorn. He may put it about on the pitch but his Instagram feed is pure kawaii.

 

Terens – 59,781

Bodin – 17,761

Boskovic – 15,604

Put them away Dragan

 

Nitipong – 14,949

Todsapol – 10,573

Kevin – 10,359

Rochela – 8,637

Nope, me neither

 

Worawut (defender) – 5,317

Worawut (goalkeeper) – 4,487

Arthit – 4,156

Suarez – 3,614

Jetjinn – 3,298

Dolah – 3,153

“BEEFCAKE! BEEFCAKE!”

 

Rattanai – 2,306

Pummared – 1,069

Midfield Monk II

 

Adisorn – 795

Panpanpong – 646

 

Big thanks to Linny Russell for collating the stats for this piece.
