As we all know the Futsal world championship is due in just a few weeks and the tense is slightly rising. Thailand's Futsal league season 2012-13 saw its kick off last week and along the game-day we took the opportunity to talk to Thai head coach Vic Hermans.

The countdown to the Futsal World Cup is winding down relentlessly and Thai national team coach Hermans is left with a good 2-week to prepare his players for the big one. A special problem once more is the unfathomably bad planning at the FA, because the last two test games already date back seven weeks. And right in the middle of a time, where full concentration should be with the preparation for the World Cup 2012, the new Thai Futsal League season saw its kick-off for only one single matchday. At least, finally Hermans could observe his players after a long time under competition conditions on the parquet.

From 22 September onwards, Thailand's U16 is going to fight for a ticket to FIFA's U17 World Cup in 2013. On the given occasion we talked to Leones dos Santos, the Brazilian coach of the youngsters, about the youth system in Thailand, the preparation and the tournament.

For outsiders Thailand's youth system and development, mostly is a big riddle. Information about are sparsely available. Even if one may trip over one or other competition in the newspaper, nevertheless, the whole system seems rather vague. Almost nothing is done by the Thai FA concerning support, let alone young players are promoted. Youth Leagues, as they are self-evident in other countries, do not exist. A small exception is the recently half-heartedly introduced reserve league in which, only 9 out of 18 TPL-Clubs take part, and even do not compete in every game.

More than 100 international caps, captain of Pattaya United, and a bastion of calm. This is Niweat Siriwong. In 2011 he gave his comeback for the Thai national team.

Niweat Siriwong had finished his international career for a first time at the age of 32. As worst comes to worst because of injuries, Winfried Schafer called him up last year and he gave his come back. But yet he tells us, he could end his international career finally after the AFF Suzuki Cup. The Pattaya United captain collected experiences in Singapore and Vietnam in the course of his long career. He spent nearly eight years abroad, before he has returned to Thailand. For the national team he appeared in nearly all big tournaments, except the SEA-Games. Why and whether he steps down from international stage; this and much more he betrays us during the interview.

It was few weeks ago that Bjorn Lindemann decided to turn his back on football in Germany. His first stay abroad has led him to Thailand; to the military sport club Army United. Lindemann, to German football fans, is known from his time with Paderborn and Osnabruck. In our exclusive interview he speaks of his time in Jena, and how in Thailand he has won back his passion for football.

Fan darling in Osnabruck, nevertheless and unexpectedly refreshing and different.
