    "You hear a lot of good things about it - the beaches and the weather."

    ...and... :smile2:

    i've been to quite a few matches in phuket and that's not what i've noticed. the fans in particular have absolutely no respect for the other fans, the opponents and most certainly not the refs.

    Really? A few of my students gave me a crash course in Thai football last year - we got free seats at one of the Thai Premier League games. One of them said that one common thing about the local teams is that some of their fans fight each other. The difference between the various games is whether the fights start during the game or after the game. Oh, and sometimes the players themselves pitch in too.:boxing

    The dropkick fans fighting and the pussies rolling around on the ground until they get a penalty, why would you go to a game?

    i've never really been a fan of thai club football but a few friends have to cover the games for various media outlets. a bit of banter and 40 baht beers are two reasons i choose to go.

    i'm much more of a thai futsal league guy. can't wait for the new season to start.
