Friendly Match: Nakhon Pathom 1 – Air Force 1

001I got my first look at a new look Nakhon Pathom team today. One thing that was evident was the fact that Nakhon Pathom are going to be much more dangerous on set pieces this year. Every free kick and corner kick was played in with a purpose. And that focus paid off in the 12th minute when a free kick was sent in with a low driving cross that was met with a glancing header that found the back of the net.

A big factor in the improvement of set pieces for Nakhon Pathom is the addition of Kone Mohamed up front. Kone Mohamed is the new target striker for Nakhon Pathom from the Ivory Coast who will add a new dimension to the Nakhon Pathom attack this year. He is physical and strong in the air. Defenses will have no choice, but to pay attention to him which will free up the other players to attack the goal. Continue reading

Suphanburi FC have their sights set high this year and there is good reason for optimism at the club. They have been busy in the offseason and return to the Thai Premier League with a strong squad. The biggest offseason acquisition at the club may be their new Brazilian coach, Sergio Farias. Sergio comes with a high pedigree. He is a coach of the highest level who won the AFC Champion’s League in his time at Pohang in Korea. As a person who was lucky enough to see Sergio’s Pohang team play in Korea, I know the levels he is capable of taking a team to. He will bring an attractive attacking style to the club and the fans will not be disappointed. There is no limit to how far Suphanburi can go with Sergio installing his system here. Continue reading
