Supporters from Rawai turned out to cheer on FC Phuket today

FC Phuket Registers 1-1 Home Draw But Impresses

Saturday, March 24, 2012
PHUKET: FC Phuket, rebuilding for its second tilt at the top in Division One, performed impressively even though they let a lead slip to register a 1-1 draw at home today.

Two games, two draws.

So far, so good for a team that has been assembled on the fly and that, on the basis of today's showing, can dare in the air and attack on occasions with flair.

Considering it was the first home game and not a lot of energy has been generated among the fan base, a good crowd turned out at Surakul Stadium in Phuket City against Rajpracha FC.

FC Phuket, who finished ninth last season, scored a goal in the first half to lead Rajpracha, who finished one slot above them.

A first-half goal by new FC Phuket import from Korea, Seongwon Byeon (11) brought a second half response from Rajpracha's Rewat Morean (9) and that was how the game ended, 1-1.

New coach Milos Joksic should be relatively pleased with the way FC Phuket is shaping, although teamwork needs to sharpen considerably. That will come with practice.

FC Phuket meets Korat away on Wednesday and returns to Phuket to play Bangkok United on Sunday, April 1. It's likely to be another 4pm start.

Good point Jonas. But they make a fool out of all of us. You would think that guy would know better since there are kids around or at least put a bra on.

Oh no! No T-shirt and drinking beer. What is the world coming to!?

How about you stop moaning enjoy the game and have a good time?? Its people like you that make this world a boring place so do me a favour and dont bother coming to the games with your negative opinions. 99.9% of the people enjoyed it and we have great connections with the club. Muppet.

Thanks Matt - i mean no t shirts and a beer whats the problem with that? The whole ground is submerged in Leo on matchdays!!!! Some of those lads travel to away matches and some of the local lads came to my mates bar here in Rawai for a party one night so to all the doommongers i suggets following The Chess World Championships would be more suitable!!! FC PHUKET!!!!!

Firstly may i say what a fun afternoon and it was great to have football back after such a long break.There were some positives to come from the first half but our lack of fitness or tiredness from the heat played a large part in letting Rajprachs back into the game in the 2nd half.
Milos the new head coach told us after the game that we will have a very exciting brazilian player fully registered and ready to play in the next game, he also told us the performances will improve with him having time with the team,for example our goalie said he had only been in Phuket for less than 1 week.
To Jonas and Jon....With all the troubles in Phuket thank you for taking your time to comment on us, we must have made a big impression with you.
JONAS...As we at Rawai Supporters Club would hate to offend and embarrass you and our fellow farangs we will be wearing 3 piece suits and only drinking wine (from glasses) for future 4pm kick offs.
JON Do you really want to see men in bra's at a football match? DONT YOU THINK THE KIDS WOULD BE A LITTLE MORE HORRIFIED THAN THEY LOOK IN THE PHOTO??
If either of you 2 guys would like to put something back into the club like we do maybe you would consider adding wall fans around the stadium, if so i can personally promise i will never sweat again and take my t-shirt off.

Here Here Hulkster!!!! Perhaps they could come and join us next home game and see how much of a good time we have. Jon and Jonus - i take it you purchased your season tickets yesterday like we did? What would you rather us do? Fight like hooligans instead? Seems to me you have both judged a book by its cover when you dont know us or our involvement with the club. FC PHUKET!!!!

I am lost for words, Jonas and Jon, God forbid you actually go out and enjoy yourselves. The Rawai Supportrers Club has become an integral part of the match day at Surukal. Please join our facebook page and perhaps join us for a beer or two at the next match. I'm 100% convinced you won't be calling us fools once the game is finished. Shame on you both. As for the game, I've seen better. There seemed to be very little in the way of tactics but I'm quite sure the coach will get it right.

Hey jon
maybe next week we can come and stand in fun corner with you and instead of wearing t-shirts we could all wear A boards saying that 'the end is near'.
If you still want us to wear bra's well thats just strange!!

God forbid anyone has any fun on this Island. Jonas and Jon, tut, tut!

Maybe they should ask the lady who collects the empty bottles and cans if she would welcome an alcohol ban on matchdays?? Would like to know what Snipe posted aswell seeing as the moderator has banned it. Nevermind we'll carry on enjoying ourselves and give them something to complain about. Bore off!!!!!

Is this the same Jonas who wants 2 tier pricing, 200 THB for all expats?
From facebook:
Jonas Virtanen
I wonder why FC Phuket dont charge us expats at least 200 baht per ticket to get the economic going. That would make us by season tickets. UI know that we all can afford it....
They charge us more everywhere else, why not here where it wouldn??t be a rip-off....
We all are used to pay at least 2-3000 baht, at LEAST, in all our home countys
Just a thought....
Jonas you really know how to get people to the stadium don't you.
