Persib Bandung fans will remember their keeper from last season, the eccentric Thai international Kosin Hathairattanakool.
This season he is plying his trade at go ahead Thai club Chonburi FC. Chonburi lies just east of Bangkok along the main road to popular tourist destination Pattaya and unlike many clubs in Thailand seem to understand the importance of having a club relate to its supporters.
This season, showing a sense of adventure lacking from much of the other Thai teams, they competed again in the Singapore Cup. Last seaon they were beaten finalists. This time around they were out at the first hurdle.
With a forward thinking set up behind the scenes perhaps Chonburi could be at the forefront of a rejuvenation of Thai domestic football. Their fans seem to think so...check out their website!
