FA Cup Final Ticket Info Released

  The long, arduous wait for FA Cup Final tickets to go on sale is apparently nearly over, with a combination of information from the Thai FA and Thai Ticket Major suggesting that tickets will be on sale starting from 10:00 on Monday 21st October. 9,000 capacity all-seated Leo stadium was announced as the venue […]

Storm the Castle: Buriram Utd vs. Port FC Preview

  Port have had some rotten results against the T1 title chasers this season, but in a league that no one seems to want to win, we’re somehow still in with an outside chance of glory. Two wins for Port, against the champions on Sunday and Samut Prakan the following week, will mean that Chiang […]

FA Cup Final Moved to Leo Stadium

  The Thai FA have upped the stakes in their quest to make as much of a mess as possible of the FA Cup Final, today announcing that the game will be moved from Army Stadium to BG Pathum Thani’s Leo Stadium. Yes, the Chang FA Cup Final will be held at Leo Stadium. Whatever […]

Port’s Foreign Signings – A Statistical Analysis

  I was standing around in The Sandpit after the home game against Nakhon Ratchasima when, as often happens, an unusual claim was made that piqued my interest. “Do you know how many foreign players Port have signed from clubs outside Thailand?

Wednesday’s victory, against a team […]

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. Why? Partly because I’ve got nothing better to do today, and partly to make […]

Bats in the PAT: Port FC vs. Sukhothai FC Preview

  Port’s woeful run of form continued last Saturday with PTT Rayong snatching a victory against a team who looked flat, unconfident and lacked ideas. Jadet’s final throw of the dice as Port coach was a midfield diamond system which, despite a fortuitous win against Muangthong, didn’t click at all in the two games in […]
