Re: Udon Thani FC 2016-season

There has actually been quite an improvement in getting games k.o'd and restarted on time. Players now seem to acknowledge their fans (although many still to arrive) after warming up, instead of just before k.o. We have to endure the rigmarole of management/team , then just team huddles before gett...

Re: Udon Thani FC 2017-season

This weekend the football starts again in Thailand. :D UDFC is playing at home in their first 3 games, and this weekend they play on Sunday at 6pm vs Sakaeo. Last month it didn`t look good for the club, at least from the fans` point of view, as we didn`t know anything about what was going on. But th...

Re: Paypal account in Thailand

I think you need a Visa card, but not sure. You can try, and then you`ll see what you need. But you need to use another email than the one you use for your UK account.

Re: Udon Thani FC 2016-season

Where are U19's playing on Thursday?& what time do they kick off? Who? :? As far as I know, UDFC don`t have a youth team. They don`t even have a first team at the moment, at least not officially. It`s rumoured that this year`s UDFC team will mostly include youth players from Muangthong United, but ...

Re: UEFA Football World Cup Qualifying Russia 2018

Next match is against Japan in BKK on 6/9/16. As I am down there that night, it crossed my mind to go. Has anyone attended an international match? If so, how easy is it to get tickets and where from? I'd suggest you PM Svein66. I'm sure he'll be helpful. He told me he was going. Svein tells me sold...

Yes, the website say it`s there, but I did not find it.

Also, I can`t find a Facebookpage for the place, which most hotels etc have.

Udon Thani FC 2016-season

Not much action in this topic, but if someone has missed it, there`s a big local derby this coming Wednesday. UDFC vs Nong Khai. KO 18.00.
UDFC is top of the table and will most likely win the league this season. Nong Khai might go 2nd if they win tomorrow.

Songkran 2559

397 dead after 6 of the 7 dangerous days. All days has gone up from last year, and 30% up in total. 111 thousand people has been arrested for drunk driving this week, meaning it`s probably several hundred thousand drunk drivers on the roads each day. :shock: http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/general/9...

Take your family to Pattaya instead, Brian. There`s a hotel you might like there, at least the name:
"Welcome to Crystal Palace..." :D

Bangkok - Hotel Family Accommodation

Check Asia Hotel at Ratchathewi BTS. You don`t get closer to BTS than this hotel. You can walk directly from BTS into 2nd floor of the hotel. I`m sure they can add a bed or two, if they don`t have a family room. Excellent breakfast buffet, but expensive when not included in roomprice. http://www.asi...

Didn't see your earlier post, but yes, correct you are, and latest Wiki states, 66 per day, on average in Thailand for fatalities on the road. 24, 237 for 2013. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_traffic-related_death_rate Maybe the reason is that Thailand only counts those who dies...

Someone have posted pictures from the accident on the guy`s Facebook account, making it look as he has posted them himself. That`s what family/friends woke up to this morning. The pictures seems to be taken from a computerscreen at an official office, maybe at the police. On the pictures he`s lying ...
