Bore and Cautious...

The billboard that informed the season opener

It wasn't hard to note the ruckus at the stands at Tampines Stadium just now, following a 0-0 draw between Tampines Rovers and Home United in this season 2009 opener.

But both teams seems to be please with the draw, as according to both Tampines' coach Vorawan Chitavanich and his Home United counterpart PN Sivaji.


PICTURES FROM THE MATCH
I decided for a switch and mingled around with the fans who sat across the main stand, before switched to my usual slot at the main stand to relief my chronic backache.


Consider not a bad turnout as 3,377 fans turned out at the stadium to catch the showdown of these two title contenders, who decided to ditch aside their usual style of play and opt for a new tactic.

Unfortunately, things don't really turned out well with both sides struggled to put up a good showing and also saw Peres De Oliveira screwed his spot-kick after referee Abdul Malik order the penalty to be taken again.

The usual post-match ritual of the Tampines Rovers

"We had many chances (to score) in the second half but being the first game (of the season), I happy with the draw", said Tampines Rovers' coach Vorawan Chitavanich after the match.

His counterpart PN Sivaji said, "It was a fair result as both teams try to win, I pleased with the boys' performance and for the fact that our defence had done well to contain (Tampines' strikers) Noh Alam Shah and Qiu Li "
