90 Minutes from glory!

The wife's gone to Bingo, so it gives me chance to get my views across of what should happen on Sunday 28th December.

  • Recall Kittisak Rawangpa to the goalkeeper spot
  • Play Ronnachai Rangsiyo instead of Winothai
  • Don't play the long ball, use the wings
  • Bring Arthit into Sundays starting lineup.

Kosin use to be my first choice goalkeeper, who el;se really? I didn't really no other any other. But why did Coach Reid change his keeper for the final first leg. As far as i'm aware, Kosin has only played in one game prior to the final. He, himself was probably surprised to get called up, being second fiddle for most the of the tournment. Kittisak surely deserved his chance? I'm sure he will get it in Vietnam, as we need a commanding presence, something Kosin doesn't look like he can achieve at this moment

Drop Winothai in favour of someone who can score? Leesaw may have all the determination, but why not let him keep this and boil it all up coming off the bench with 30 to go? Although a few days ago i would have played Rangsiyo instead of Dangda, i just feel now they need to be played together as they have got the goal scoring knack in this tournement. Don't go with attittudes and star studded players on this one, go with the guys who know where the net is for this tournement.

Don't play the long ball, be more paitent. If a gap isn't opening up, then slow it down and start agan, don't be afriad to keep the ball. Don't just hoof it for the sake of something possibly happening, lets make it happen by playing with the ball and using the wings, with Sutee Sukomsit and Arthit to get crosses in.

This tournement we have shown from corners and free kicks that we can hed the ball better than anyone, so use the width and get them crosses in. Be patient, and draw the freekick so we can pinpoint our chances in.

One last note, don't play into the hands of Vietnam. It's only one goal. It we play far too attacking, we will score, but we will also get caught out. Conceding a goal will make heads drop. Vietnam will be very nervous for the whole game. And there fans now expect them to win. Still 0-0 with 15 to go, no problem. Either way, don't play to get caught at the back again, and the Vietnamese will start to crack the longer the game goes. Keep them without scoring and chances will open up.
