Pang to Rights! Chairwoman Charged for Air Force Rampage


Following her recent meltdown at Port’s defeat at Air Force, the FAT have thrown the book at fragrant Port chairwoman Madam Pang. With the game at 2-2 after Port had recovered from a 2-0 deficit, the ref awarded Air Force a late penalty after Pakorn was adjudged to have fouled striker Greg Houla in the area. La Pang was decidedly unhappy with his decision and stormed off the bench with the intention of tearing the linesman a new one, and had to be physically restrained by an extremely courageous Dragan Boskovic.

The upshot is that Pang has been hit with a two-game touchline ban and a fine of 50,000BHT – 10,000 for leaving the technical area – 40,000 for criticising and using ‘rude words’ to the match officials. Not her most expensive ‘handbags’ of the year for sure, but still a sizeable sum. Her faithful assistant Joh has also received a 2-game ban.

Of course, there are those, myself included, who would argue that the owner of the club shouldn’t be anywhere near the bench in the first place; let’s just say that, in a season when Port fans have been banned from going to Muangthong lest fines and points deductions should ensue, it’s ironic that our only fine so far this season has been incurred by our esteemed chairwoman. On the positive side, at least it shows she cares as much as we do.
