Foreign Legion Keep Felda United's Perfect Record

Malaysia Super League

Sarawak v Felda United 1-2 (Junior Aparecido; Zah Raham, Francis Forkey Doe) 6,123

Two games into the new season and we have surprise leaders with Felda United the only team to have a 100% record though they needed a late win from Doe to secure the points. The one time Liberian international has been scoring goals for fun since arriving in Malaysia in 2012. Felda United are his fifth club in as many years, Terengganu, Selangor, Kelantan, Negeri Sembilan. Fellow Liberian Zah Rahan hit his second of the season.

T Team v Johor Darul Tazim 0-2 (Azamuddin Akil, Pereya Diaz) 2,126

Indonesian coach Rahmad Darmawan awaits his first win in Malaysia after seeing his T Team go down against the champions. I did read somewhere T  Team were to be rebranded Terangganu FC II so people would treat them as equals of Terengganu though muggins old me fails to see how any team with II in the title can be anything but a second rate version of the first. Ironically JDT started this particular ball rolling. Perhaps just give them a new name altogether?

Penang v Pahang 4-1 (Faiz Subri 2, Mathias Cordoba, Osas Saha Marvelous; Rizua Shafiqi) 4,704

A disappointing crowd witnessed a fine performance from newly promoted Penang as they put Pahang to the sword. The marvelously named Osas spent a number of years playing on the other side of the Melaka Strait for teams like PSAP, PSMS and Semen Padang among others and he played his part for his new club, netting his first of the season. All eyes though were on an outrageous free kick by Faiz Subri which quickly went viral. As for Pahang...pre season they lost a number of players who had been at  the heart of their recent successes, Damion Stewart, Ruben Conti, Dickson Nwakaeme and have been struggling under new coach Ahmad Shahruddin Rosdi. Still, early days and if anyone knows a thing or two about Pahang it is Rosdi, formerly a player and assistant coach with the football club.

Perak v Selangor 0-1 (Ronaldhino Wleh) 17,300

After prolific spells with Sime Darby and PKNS you cannot say Liberian striker Wleh has not deserved his chance at a truly big club and he repaid some of that trust last night with the only goal of the game.

Kelantan v PDRM 1-0 (Dramane Traore) 13,253

First win of the season for Kelantan...luckily no one seems to be calling them by their sponsors name. That was so convoluted I have already forgotten it.

Malaysia Premier League

Sime Darby v ATM 3-0 (Syed Sobri, Faizal Aziz, Mateo Roskam)

Oh dear...another heavy defeat for ATM. Could be a long season for them...
