Most of the German football fans will remember this scene very well. World Cup 2006 and Poland is holding on to a draw. Stoppage time and David Odonkor spurts down the line, crosses in a magnificent ball and Oliver Neuville converts. Both went into history books and become heros.

Now one of both heroes, Odonkor, could continue his career in Thailand. On Sunday several media reported the winger is in contact with newly promoted Thai Premier League club Bangkok United. According to head coach Sasom Pobprasert the salary expectation is feasible and a trial is not necessary. However, the crunch point could be the physical state. Therefore Odonkor will have to be put to the acid test. Not too wrong. Over and over again David Odonkor was plagued by knee problems and had to pause several months in each case.

Sisaket FC face enforced relegation (News)
Topic: Thai League 1
Sisaket FC Esan United Sisaket FC which could play only three games so far this season is likely to face enforced relegation, said Thai Premier League president Vichit Yamboonruang just recently.

The Thai Premier League is already in the second half of the season and Sisaket FC has just played three fixtures so far this season. All this following an injunction earlier this year coming by an ownership dispute. Under strange circumstances the ownership of Sisaket FC changed at the end of 2011 and the club moved to Ubon Ratchathani. Associated with a name change to Esan United. Fans of Sisaket protested throughout the whole season and the former owners which they felt betrayed undertook legal action. A few weeks ahead of the 2013 season, the court decided in favour of the old owners. The club moved back to Sisaket FC and played three games. And of course it led to the fact that the owners of Esan United in turn went to court.

We are heading to mid-season in the Thai Premier League and the managerial roundabout gets in swing. After Winfried Schafer took a seat on it the last week, with Heiko Scholz another German could follow him soon.

Not only Slaviša Jokanović had to take his hat the last week when he left Muang Thong United. Also Chiang Rai United dismissed his coach. Brazilian Stefano Cugurra, who is nicknamed Teco. Between 2010 and 2013 he led Chiang Rai from Thailand's Divison One to the Thai Premier League and even to a semi-final appearance in Thailand's FA Cup last year. And despite finishing the league in ninth place and reaching the semis of the FA Cup, calls for Teco to step down by the fans where immense during last season. Banners with "Teco out" could be seen around the "United Stadium". However, Khun Mitti Tiyapairat stood to his coach. After a poor start into the current season, with only one victory from the last games, calls for his departure raised again and this time became even more vehement as before. Finally Teco had to leave.

Winfried Schafer is back on the sideline as a club coach. Only few days after the mutual agreement between the Thai FA and the German to end his contract at Thailand's helm, he was introduced as the new head coach of defending TPL champion Muang Thong.

What counts, is on the pitch and within a few days Winfried Schafer has switched its job. After the 63-year-old was booted out by a single-handed effort of the associations president, both sides finally agreed on Monday to terminate the contract. Almost at the same time, Thailand's reigning champion Muang Thong got in touch with Schafer and asked for his help. Slaviša Jokanović, who led the team to a season without a single defeat in 2012, was still in the office at that time. One day later he was not there anymore.

Topic: Thai League 1
Chonburi FC caused a drum beat last weekend on the transfer market with his latest foreign signing. The 24-year-old Irfan Bachdim, Indonesian international, have put his signature under an one year contract.

The current TPL transfer window, open since mid of December, went rather quietly so far apart of a few signings like the Austrian Roland Linz with Muang Thong United. Now Chonburi FC caused a drum beat on the last weekend with Irfan Bachdim putting pen to paper. Already at the beginning of the year the 24 year-old international spent a few days in Thailand when being on trial with BEC Tero Sasana. However, he apparently hasn't been able to convince the persons responsible. Shortly after it he received an invitation from the Sharks for a trial during the "Chang Chonburi Tournament" which started on the 24 January and runs until the 30 January.
