    The "Pinoy Football Super Tuesday" turned out to be a disaster as all three Philippine team lost their games. Ceres-Negros FC got routed by FC Istiklol, a club whose name sounds like a meme.

    And to think that Tajikistan is not supposed to be that strong, ranked only 150th in the world by FIFA while we are ranked 127th. Anyway, Ceres now has the very tough task of scoring at least five goals while keeping Istiklol scoreless in Panaad to advance.

    I won't say it won't happen, but it is very unlikely, and I think Ceres will just have to settle for a win a home .

    Ceres-Negros FC could only settle for a Draw in Panaad, knocking them out of the Inter-Zone Semi-Finals of the 2017 AFC Cup.

    It was sort of disappointing, but Ceres has reached a level where no other Philippine Club has reached before, so that is a bit of a consolation.

    From the game, Istiklol was the more confident one, with the more dangerous chances although Ceres did make a couple of good tries at the goal, too.

    if they played the same way in the 1st leg, it would've been a different result in 2nd leg.. ceres might have eliminated istiklol..

    Hard to say. As you advance to the AFC Cup, the opponents get tougher also. Ceres was the ASEAN Zone Champion, then now they have to face a tough Central Asian team. Football is big in Central Asia, and since they are near Europe they are very competitive also.

    Global Cebu FC drew with Singapore's Hougang United FC in the first leg of their Semi-Final match of the RHB Singapore Cup yesterday (Wed., Sep. 28, 2017).

    Global-Cebu FC reaches the finals of the 2017 RHB Singapore Cup after beating Singapore's Hougang United FC!!!

    Darryl Roberts has been fantastic up front scoring three goals in two games for Global, but among the locals, Paolo Salenga has been outstanding combining with Roberts on offense.

    He has contributed at least two assists in my count in Global's two games against Hougang, and if he's not with the Azkals yet, then he probably should be. Patrick Deyto at goal has made some great saves in this game also as we can see, tremendously helping Global's cause in the RHB Singapore Cup.

    Sad to see that a team like Global Cebu FC is having financial problems ...

    Singapore Cup Final in Jeopardy

    Shamir Osman Sports Correspondent
    Nov 22, 2017 03:58 pm

    The RHB Singapore Cup Final has often been the finale to the S.League season - encapsulating the romance of a cup competition where minnows have a shot against the big guns - and the last match on the local football calendar.

    But this Saturday's final between Albirex Niigata and Global Cebu may not even take place.

    The Football Association of Singapore (FAS) is planning an extravaganza to close what has been an uncertain 2017, but the Philippine side may not even show up in Singapore.

    Sources revealed that Global players are still owed wages, some of them for up to six months, and players are refusing to get on the plane if they are not paid at least a month of what is owed to them.

    Speaking to The New Paper, Global captain Misagh Bahadoran confirmed that a cloud is indeed hanging over the club, but is something that can be surmounted.

    "This year we are going through a difficult time. There are just two players owed six months' salary, most of us are owed between four and five months' (wages)," said the Philippines international.

    "But I don't think the management will let that (boycott of the Singapore Cup final) happen.

    It looks like Global got to work out its internal problems after all.

    **************************

    Football: No Global Boycott of Singapore Cup Final After Wage Issues Resolved

    PUBLISHED NOV 22, 2017, 11:38 PM SGT
    Shamir Osman

    The RHB Singapore Cup final between S-League champions Albirex Niigata and Philippine outfit Global Cebu at the Jalan Besar Stadium on Saturday (Nov 25) will go on as planned after Global players decided not to go on strike.

    The finale of the local football season had been thrown into disarray earlier on Wednesday (Nov 22) after Global players threatened not to get on the plane to Singapore unless wage issues were resolved. Sources had revealed that Global players were owed their salaries, some of them for up to six months.

    But after a players' meeting with the club's management later in the day, Global captain Misagh Bahadoran said that the issues have been ironed out.

    "This was a misunderstanding between the club and the players, and I'm glad to say the problem has been fixed and we will be flying to Singapore tomorrow," said Bahadoran, declining to reveal details of the solution.

    Looking forward to the final, Bahadoran believes Global have enough quality to deny Albirex a clean sweep of all four domestic titles on Saturday.

    Minegishi Leaves Global Cebu for Pattaya United

    ON DECEMBER 22, 2017 FOOTBALL TIMES

    Filipino-Japanese midfielder Hikaru Minegishi has left Global Cebu FC for Thai club Pattaya United FC while Filipino-German goalkeeper Roland Muller has announced he’s leaving Ceres Negros FC to devote more time to his family.

    “I decided to play in Thai League 1. I did sign with Pattaya United. This club has a good history. I’ll give all my energy and passion (to this team) from now on,” Minegishi announced through a Facebook post on Thursday.

    Pattaya earlier posted on Facebook that it signed Minegishi as its last import player, meeting the Asean quota for the next season of Thailand’s top-tier league.

    After a brief stint with the renowned Urawa Red Diamonds and a collegiate career at Sendai University in Japan, Minegishi joined Global in 2015 and stayed with the Cebu-based club for nearly three years.

    The 26-year old booter received his first Azkals call-up last year for the Asean Football Federation Suzuki Cup and has since been a regular player on Thomas Dooley’s roster.

    Minegishi played a key role in Global’s runner-up finish in the inaugural season of the Philippines Football League.

    Awesome 3-2 win by Ceres-Negros over Brisbane Roar! Next up for them is the CSL's Tianjin Quanjian.

    Global Loses to Vietnam

    Published February 12, 2018, 3:00 AM
    By JONAS TERRADO

    Game Tomorrow (Panaad Stadium, Bacolod City)
    7:30 p.m. – Ceres vs Boeungket

    Global-Cebu conceded the only goal with 15 minutes before stoppage time and fell 1-0 to Vietnamese side FLC Thanh Hoa in Saturday’s opener of the AFC Cup at the My Dinh National Stadium in Hanoi.

    The Philippines Football League runner-up witnessed Faye score the winner with a header off a cross from the left flank to absorb a defeat in a game held amid foggy conditions in the Vietnamese capital.

    Patrick Deyto made several key saves behind the sticks for Global, including a pair of early attempts by Faye, but was unable to complete a third late in the match.

    Ceres Seeks Payback vs Singapore

    By: Cedelf P. Tupas - Reporter / @cedelfptINQ
    Philippine Daily Inquirer / 05:06 AM February 27, 2018

    Philippines Football League champions Ceres-Negros hopes to solidify its hold of top spot as it clashes with Home United of Singapore in the rematch of their AFC Cup Asean zone finals last year at Jalan Besar Stadium on Tuesday night.

    With only the top team in the group guaranteed of making the knockout stage, every game matters for the Busmen, who lost to Home United the last time they played in Singapore in the first leg of the Asean zone finals.

    The Busmen went on to beat Home at Panaad Stadium in Bacolod to rule the Asean zone.

    Thailand is to Football what the Philippines is to Basketball in South East Asia.

    Mark Hartmann is also the very first Filipino ever to score a goal in four of South East Asia's major leagues (Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia and now Thailand).

    **************************

    Azkals’ Mark Hartman Biding his Time in Thai League after First Ubon UMT Goal

    Kelvin Leong

    Azkals striker Mark Hartmann in awe of Thai League standards after first goal for Ubon UMT

    After two games on the bench, Filipino striker Mark Hartmann got his first start for new club Ubon UMT in a 3-1 loss away to Nakhon Ractahasima FC.

    The former Geylang International and Sarawak FA forward struck in the 17th minute but could not prevent his club from their second loss of the season.

    Ubon UMT opened their campaign with a 1-0 away loss to Navy FC before securing a 3-1 home victory against Prachuap FC. Hartmann’s first goal gave his side the lead in their third game of the season but goals from Paulo Rangel, Tufy and Attapong Nooprom saw the Swat Cats seal a stunning comeback win.

    Having plied his trade in four of Southeast Asia’s top leagues – Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand – Hartmann reckons the Thai League is miles ahead of the rest.

    “Three games in and I can see the difference,” Hartmann told FOX Sports Asia. “The tempo of the game is a lot higher over here.

    “The players are also a lot more technically solid. The way the teams are set up and the training facilities are right up there.

    “Like I said before, you just have to look at how well Thai teams like Buriram United and Muangthong United have done in the AFC Champions League and it is obvious.

    Davao Aguilas Eye Title Against Kaya in Tagum City

    Thursday, March 01, 2018
    By MARIANNE L. SABERON-ABALAYAN DAVAO.

    THE newly-revitalized Davao Aguilas Football Club (FC) eyes the title as it opens bid against Kaya Futbol Club of Makati on Sunday, March 4, at the Davao del Norte Sports and Tourism Complex in Tagum City in the 2nd season of the Philippine Football League (PFL).

    Gametime is at 4 p.m.

    New marketing head Michael Shaw, during the Davao Sportswriters Association (DSA) Forum at The Annex of SM City Davao, said: "We can be realistic on how we will surpass our performance last season.. we started as a whole team, we will end as a whole team. Be rest assured that our goal is not just to participate but to win this season."

    The Davao Aguilas FC, bankrolled by San Miguel Corporation, has acquired a new Korean assistant coach, nine new players from other football clubs and abroad and physical therapists to beef up the squad.

    Shaw said they also partnered with country's leading sports science facility, Focus Athletics, for the players' physical program considering the series of injuries that beset the team last year.
