    Yawn......This will not improve Thai club football any. They need to start from scratch.

    I lived in Thailand for a few years and absolutely no one attends club matches. As we all know the best Thai players are all in Vietnam or Singapore. This is why Thailand is so far below the West and East Asian nations.

    really more of a money issue. as a native-speaker English teacher I make two to three times more than most footballers here (and I ain't exactly rolling in it), so why in the world would anybody any good want to play here?

    Actually S-league is running short on Thais players already with only 5 players & 3 of the players are not actually hot property

    Only Sutee & Thedask are worth mentioning

    It is unlike the 1996- 2001 when Thais were flooding into the Republic & every club have 1 Thai player min

    Now V-league is the rage with Thai players

    Anyway the new league may not helped much but it is the first step for the Thai Fa have too long nelgected football outside of Bangkok & having 2 clubs from thr Province may helped a little

    just by way of follow up: bangkok bank won the playoff to stay up; and even though I've thought this has been fairly well set in stone (as much as anything here ever is) for a while now, now this appears

    I assume cabinet approval is largely a formality, but this suddenly doesn't sound quite so finalized...bah, I imagine it'll still happen, and still won't make much difference.
