The next game

I have absolutely no idea when my next game is going to be. I had planned a trip south yesterday to take in PSMS v PKT at the Siliwangi Stadium in Bandung but they went and relocated to Palembang which is on another bloody island.

Next Saturday sees Pelita Jaya scheduled to host Persija at the Jalak Harupat Stadium in Soreang but...Soreang is bandit territory for the Jakarta side. It is right in the heart of Persib fan land and indeed to get there any travelling fans would have to pass Bandung. And that is unlikely.

Last season the game was played in Purnawarman Stadium, Purwakarta, also in Persib land and things got pretty bloody messy there, especially after the game.

I spoke yesterday with the Pelita Jaya coach who was preparing his side for their Singapore Cup tie against DPMM and he has no idea where the Persija game will be played.

I can't see Persija fans being allowed to travel, the hatred between them and Persib is just to great. If it goes ahead in Soreang then figure on the game being played behind closed doors.

Regarding an actual game it looks like my next one will be in Malaysia in about three weeks time. Watch this space!
