    A longer coverage of Meralco Manila's home game against JPV Marikina by Red Card TV.

    Football patronage in Manila is basically dead, this is true for Manila teams like Meralco Manila, Kaya Makati, etc. That is because people there would prefer to watch an Indoor Game like Basketball, Volleyball, MMA, etc.

    Metro Manilans just like to watch their sport in a weatherproof and temperature controlled environment, which is why those other sports tend to be packed and have very good patronage.

    However, there is hope, and that is in the provinces. We have seen how the crowd was in Cebu, and the same is true in other provincial teams like the Davao Aguilas or Ceres Negros.

    Once JPV Marikina and Stallions Laguna fixes their stadiums, we'll see if they can draw in the Football crowds as well.

    The Transfer Window is now open, and first off, Jason de Jong left Ceres Negros FC to transfer to the San Miguel Davao FC: http://fastbreak.com.ph/de-jong-tran...davao-aguilas/

    Simone Rota has also left Ceres-Negros FC, but no news where he will end up.

    The Younghusbands are rumored to be leaving the Manila Meralco FC for San Miguel Davao FC, but this is unconfirmed yet.

    I think San Miguel Davao deserves a much stronger team than what they have now because of their awesome patronage, so let's see if they really do get the team that they want during this Transfer Window.

    Players who have left their teams but have not indicated where they are going to next:
    - Nick O'Donnell, former Global Cebu FC, ADMU standout, member of the Youth Azkals
    - Matthew Hartmann, former Global Cebu FC, former Azkal
    - Simone Rota, former Ceres Negros FC, former Azkal

    These are quality, name players, and if they do end up with the San Miguel Davao FC, that will make that team really strong. The Younghusbands are also rumored to be on the way to the Tagum team also.

    Me possible "Transfer Fee" pa pala. This is one thing I don't like about Football, their trade rules tend to be quite complicated and skewed towards the teams too much.

    Struggling Davao Gets Aggressive, Targets Younghusband Siblings via Transfer Window

    By: Cedelf P. Tupas - Reporter / @cedelfptINQ
    Philippine Daily Inquirer / 05:04 AM July 21, 2017

    Philippines Football League club FC Meralco Manila will be facing stiff competition in its bid to keep stars Phil and James Younghusband in the squad as the mid-year transfer window opened this week.

    Two clubs, including newcomer San Miguel Davao Aguilas, have expressed interest in acquiring the Younghusband brothers, whose three-year deal with Meralco ends at the end of August.

    Two clubs are interested, but they are still under contract with Meralco, said a reliable source. Whats important to them (Younghusband brothers) is that they can continue playing at a high level.

    The Younghusband brothers have been with the Sparks since 2011, winning two trophies, including the UFL Cup in 2014.

    A source within Meralco said the club is ready to offer Phil and James a one-year deal.
