Geylang United v Albirex Niigata
What the hell?!
My last SLeague games ended 0-5, 3-2, 4-1, 1-5 and 2-4. And this? The best this bloody thing could manage was a 1-0 to the home side and that from a penalty. Still I guess Mike Wong, the Geylang coach, would have been happy. Three straight wins, three straight clean sheets. But does he care about me and my feelings eh?
Fair play to Geylang for putting together a decent 8 page match programme. More clubs should follow that lead.
What's the point the gaming machine obsessed SLeague club owners might whine? None, none at all. Who cares if fans have no idea who's playing on either side, if they have nothing to take away from the game, if they have nothing to show their friends.
Who needs to develop a football awareness and culture when you can bleed gamblers dry eh?
