New shirt available - Still not sure whether this is just a polo shirt or whether it is the new playing kit. Hope it's the former - I hate collars on football shirts!!

thaiwolf

Roger - -help - not sure who to ask, but do you think the Swatcats deserve a separate forum within Koratfart. I would contribute every week. Thanks for any help. Russ

New kit 2016. Sadly without black shorts A la WWFC!!

Roger

Thaiwolf. Thanks for the updates - the Bus must be worth 10 points a season....
Myself I would really like to know the squad numbers and who is in the team every week.
IMO it would be good to have a 'Child' board for the Swatcats - why not send a PM to our friendly Bossman JohnnieF who might be able to help.

Premier League News.

The Thai Premier League has been renamed The Premier League of Thailand  -The PLT. No really its not April 1st!!!

The season start has been put back 1 week.

More news as it happens.

Roger

And that took a week !
Thanks TW and keep it coming please . . . .

Chang Tounament final.

FT Nahkon Ratchasima 0 Chainat Hornbills 4

Whoops !!!!

Roger

TW Ouch !
Bad day at the office then.
Did you notice Swatcats have more than 10,000 views on KF now.
ATB

thaiwolf

Only a "friendly" Roger but disappointing none the less. A chance to boost confidence lost.


thaiwolf

Due to the seemingly daily cock up by the FAT, The newly named PLT will start a week late. Now listen carefully…. The original Match day 2 fixtures will now become the new Match day 1 fixtures (are you following!!).


This means (I think) that the Swatcat's first fixture will be:

5th March 19:00   Nakhon Ratchasima FC   v   Muang Thong United..


Piss ups in breweries springs to mind but after all this is Thailand!! Not an auspicious start for the new regime.

thaiwolf

Yipppeee, the new season starts on saturday. More details to come later.

Roger

Well TW.
Good to start the season with a win !
No problem.
ATB

The Swatcats face a challenging start to the 2016 season when they welcome the talented Muang Thong United on Saturday 5th. March, KO 19.00 hours. The visitors have strengthened their squad in the close season with one of their acquisitions being Messi J Chananthip. They will be looking to challenge Buriram United for the top spot and the hosts will be hard pressed to snatch a point in this season opener.
My Prediction: Swatcats 1 Muang Thong United 1

thaiga

Hi mr. wolf - great job your doing

My Prediction: Swatcats 1 Muang Thong United 0

were not allowed to have a wager but can play with karma, who ever is correct, if at all

Maybe some more members will join in  :cheers
Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist should have his head examined.

thaiwolf

Hope your prediction is right Thaiga. It would be a great start to the season. Hope you are going to the match!!

Rumour but could be good news:
"Ghana NT's forward, Dominic Adiyiah ready to return to Nakhon Ratchasima FC for 2016"
Hope it's true!!

thaiwolf

Please stay with us Dominic....and persuade Lee Tuck to stay too!!!

thaiwolf

Great news. Confirmed. Adido is BACK!!!!!

Roger

Now they can perhaps play him regularly !
ATB

thaiwolf

Big kick off tomorrow. 7.00 KO. Why not go along and support your local team? It will be a great atmosphere with a 20k plus crowd.
Your club needs YOUR support!!!

Roger

Yes TW. Good luck tomorrow and enjoy watching 'Dashing Dominic'.

Dateline 5th March 2016

NRFC 0 Muang Thong United 1

In front of an astonishing 32 000 fans at the 80th Anniversary Stadium, a decent and quick passing Muang Thong overcame a brave Swatcat team with a 37th minute goal in this season opener.

In a repeat of the score in the corresponding fixture last year Muang Thong showed their class with their contingent of players from the Thai National team proving more than a match for the home team. I would note at this point however that NRFC looked a more polished and balanced side than at the start of last season.
The home team started brightly, spurning a golden chance to gain an 11th minute advantage after an incredible run from Tagbajumi. Muang Thong however looked excellent going forward with quick passing and astute use of the flanks. They looked likely to score on a number of occasions but the home team defended doggedly. They produced a long range shot that struck the upright and in the 37th minute a well flighted shot come cross drifted into the net much to the surprise of every player on the pitch!!!

The home team produced some useful attacking moves, with a long range shot tipped over by the keeper and some dogged defending preventing another shot but as the match progressed they seemed to tire allowing Muang Thong to gain more possession.

The second half saw the home team pressing forward leaving huge gaps for the visitors to exploit with Muang Thong happy to keep possession and protect their lead forcing the home keeper into a fine save in the 58th minute

The Swatcat’s chances were few and far between with Tagbajumi forcing some great defensive work in the 60th minute. The addition of Adido failed to inspire the home team to produce much but as the team pressed for an unlikely equalizer, the fans almost raised the roof when an 80th minute Lindemann blast shaved the woodwork and a Chivuta shot was well saved. Nagano then rose well to draw a first class save from the opposition keeper as the home team mounted a late rally. A Lindemann strike in the dying seconds flew inches over the bar denying the home team a first point of the season.

Positives to be taken: Tagbajumi looked a handful at times, the defence fought well and the general balance of the team looked useful and of course the wonderful support â€" if team members are not motivated by the atmoshpere at the 80 th Anniversary Stadium they should not be wearing the orange shirt.
Based on this performance, the Swatcats will have a respectable campaign. Losing to a strong team like Muang Thong is no disgrace. Going forward, I hope that team abandons the “one up front” strategy and strives to give Tagbajumi some support - especially for future home games.
As for Muang Thong, they looked like a top 3 team but I fear they will find it difficult to challenge for the top honour â€" their defending was shoddy at times and stronger opponents will capitalize on this.
