Persib Bandung drew 0-0 with Arema on the opening day of the season (this weekend)!

Also noticed another familiar face playing for Madura United… Peter Odemwingie! And he only went and tucked a penalty away vs Bali Utd. I wonder if he drove to Madura on deadline day to force through the transfer?

Guessing Essien and Carlton Cole have got away with any visa issues, since they both played for Persib yesterday in their 2-2 draw with Persatuan Sepak.

Essien scored the opening goal, too!


Both started on the bench, but made second half appearances. 

Two things struck me about this… F. Keraf must have had a stinker to get subbed on and then later get replaced by Cole when the team were 2-0 up xD

And secondly, I’ve only just learned that Indonesian teams are allowed to make a maximum of five subs per match (Persib made four in this match).

Carlton Cole update… he still hasn’t scored a goal for Persib xD 

In fact, he can’t get into their starting line-up. Essien, however, has made 7 appearances and scored twice. That visa issue seems to have melted away!

8 games into the season and another familiar face tops the goalscoring charts, at time of writing: one Peter Odemwingie, with 5 goals for Madura Utd!

Just found out that Didier Zokora (now 36), formally of Spurs and Sevilla fame, plies his trade in the Indonesian Liga 1, too. He’s made 4 appearances for Semen Padang. On that note, I did a quick Google translation on that team name… and now I’m off to delete my internet cookies.
