"It's a wriggler this one!"
The pitch at The Thunderdome has been a focal point for everyone from Bryan Robson to the lady selling somtam outside during the last few weeks. During the Rajpracha Vs Loei City game, I was convinced someone would suffer a serious injury on the water-logged surface. (I was relieved to be proven wrong about that, but it's still a risk).
And while I'm mentioning the bits I got wrong, I wrongly stated a new pitch had been laid down after the final Muangthong game of the season. The correct situation is this: a new pitch has been ordered. When 'installed' the contractors will also do some digging to implement a drainage system at the stadium. It's a big job and will be a race against time to be ready for the new season.
As previously mentioned, Robert and Co. at the club have a lot going on behind the scenes as they aim to stay at the forefront of the Thai football explosion. Stay tuned.
