Tom’s Transfer Talk: Meerkat to Swat Cats

 

Anon Samakorn, known by me as ‘the meerkat’ for his head-swiveling awareness in midfield, has finally ended a frustrating spell with Port and joined Korat on a free transfer. Anon, who briefly broke in to the team shortly after his arrival from OHL Leuven in 2018, was underrated and underused by successive Port managers, having shown great promise in those first few games before being unceremoniously dropped out of sight and out of mind. He would make just two appearances in 2019.

 

 

 

I thought Anon was a player with great potential, but apparently Port management didn’t agree, and have deemed him surplus to requirements for the following season. After the arrival of Kanarin Thawornsak, it was clear there was no future for Anon at Port, and hopefully he will find more opportunities to start games at his new club and fulfill his potential there. We’ll miss you, fella.

 


 

Other news from the first day of training yesterday were the confirmed arrivals of Thanasit Sripala, Nattawut Sombatyotha, Tanakorn Dangthong and the aforementioned Kanarin Thawornsak.

Curiously, defender Worawut Namwech was also pictured training, which makes no sense to me as I thought he was only ever on loan at Port, and was moved from Chiang Rai to Chiang Mai at the mid-season interval.

 


 

And finally, Madame Pang was yesterday pictured meeting with a BG big-wig, but there is no indication who or what she may have been discussing. Midfielder Thitipan Puangchan, a favourite of mine, will be returning to BG from the J League next week, so that could be a possibility. I mean it’s not like we just signed 3 midfielders or anything!
