Left back? Where?

Like most fans I was pleased when Kallio arrived, and I still think he can do a good job for us. Yet, it struck me as very risky to loan out our consistent and fit left back Piyachart to BEC Tero for a whole season in favour of someone who had never played in Thailand.

So when Kallio struggled, we had to bring in youth team player Arthit. He started at the same time as Kayem - though Kayem got a few games last season in the TLC - which also struck me as a little risky.

Arthit has done well but got red-carded last week against Army. The Army goals came afterwards. I assume that makes him unavailable for Sunday's game against Port Authority.

So what happens against Port? Either Kallio will have to start or someone will have to play out of position. I favour Kallio as he is a giant and Port are a very physical side.

But you have to wonder why? Why loan out a left back who played so many games and never once let us down? Why did we allow this problem to happen?

I don't know if we have a recall clause on Piyachart but when he left, Ronnachart said he was: "very much still in our plans". So what are we planning for Sunday, Khun Ronnachart?
