FA Cup exit

Eka's FA Cup run fell at the first hurdle with a home defeat by higly-rated Central side Muang Kan. Nonthaburi's season is threatening to peter out very quickly unless the goals start to flow soon, but the supporters will stick by the team.

New kit preview

This is the draft design of Nonthaburi FC's new shirt. It looks great in my opinion, although the cetralised logo is not my favourite style. The sponsors are King Power and Chang, perhaps influenced by the Newin connection. More sponsors may yet be announced. The shirt is not yet on sale but is expected to be available after Song Kran. The price is TBA.

Nonthaburi 0 Samut Prakan United 2

Eka's defeat at home to SPCU was almost a replay of the previous home loss against Assumption Thonburi. The 'Crows' had plenty of possession but lack a true out-and-out striker to finish chances. It's also surprising to see goalkeeper Manop left out of the side when he did so well last season.

Credit to the home fans for getting behind the side throughout the game but quite rightly, they are starting to worry about this year's campaign. The club missed out on the play-offs by goal difference last season and have strengthened in pre-season this year so expectations were quite high. D2 has a huge number of teams clamouring to get out of it and only three slots to do so. If things don't turnaround soon, perhaps we need to make a quick review of our coaching situation.
Let's hope the the addition of the new players into the side can help one of the forwards hit a good run of form. Onwards and upwards.
