Port’s Asian Adventure Stopped by AGMKO

  Port’s AFC Futsal Club Championship 2019 came to a dramatic end on Wednesday night, as Uzbek powerhouses AGMK dominated for 38 and a half minutes before almost letting the game slip in the final 90 seconds. Port had cruised through the group stages scoring ten and conceding just one in three comfortable victories over […]

Port’s Non-Starter XI

  After Port’s mid-season, featuring a spate of off-the-wall signings, I thought I’d try and cobble together a team of players who now could feasibly fail to register a single minute of T1 action between them in the rest of 2019.

Chonburi, in possession of one of the most prolific strikers in the league in Lukian (91), had already upgraded their second string Brazilian, bringing in Prachuap’s Caion (7) for […]

Tom’s Transfer Talk: Chenropping and Changing

  Port have once again decided their mid-season transfer business is incomplete, reportedly making moves to bring in two further strikers. Yes, that’s two more strikers. One of the deals is more or less confirmed, so let’s look at that first. I have given a short, unbiased and objective account of Chenrop Samphaodi’s career to […]
