    AlHilal beat AlAhli 3-1 at home last night and reach to the 27th pts

    they become the 2nd in the table now behind ALNassr (29pts) with one match in hand for AlHilal.

    Ittihad FC is in big mess again this season after terrible last season. Already 2 coaches sacked & the management is a mess.

    Saleh Saqri former player and manager of the club resigned 2 days before and has now accused the management & coach for the mess the club is currently in.

    Foreign players left without any pay and are prepared to file complaints against the club in FIFA.

    The bottom line is how can a club with rich history can go awfull in 3 seasons without being audited by the Saudi FA. The same should be applied to other clubs too.

    Congrats Hilal on winning the league for this season and upcoming seasons until your corrupted officials who are handling the FA are not off the post.

    Start playing football and win the league instead of winning $$$

    Al-Hilal is only 2 wins away from Title out of remaining 5 matches.

    Playing the league without spectators aside, Saudi FA should restrict the no. of foreign players allowed to play in the playing 11 team.
    The no. of foreign players playing in playing 11 should be 3 max. among the playing 11.
    This will provide opportunity to Saudi players to play, perform and groom. For e.g., Saleh Al Shehri in Al-Hilal is a talented striker but he is finding it extremely hard to find playing time in presence of Gomes and Khirben. Similar situate is faced by other players not only in Al-Hilal but all other clubs.

    If above is not possible, then Saudi FA should have a tournament like Prince Faisal Bin Fahad Cup in which, all teams playing should play with only Saudi nationals (and no foreign players be playing this tournament).

    Can anyone relay the above message to Saudi FA ?

    You mean Hilal continuing winning the games after bribing the other teams and the referee's ?They are getting dubious penalties in almost every game they face against mid table or bottom team..

    TBH, I have slowly starting disliking the league now.. Firstly, too much unpredictability.. Shabab wins a game against a like wise team and loose the next game to bottom table team..
    Coaches fired everyweek..Players getting AWOL..
    No proper stadiums for the clubs to get established to the ground and actually call it there home ground..Shabab and Nasser are the most unlucky ones in this. You find them playing in King Fahd or Malaz Stadium or Shabab Stadium..Hilal has fixed there ground and the players are adapted to it now.. Likewise in Jeddah, Jawharah stadium started looking old now since every game is being played there of Ittihad and Ahli..
    Last but not the least, has any one showed FA yet they top goal scoring strikers in the league and how many are locals? Are they really expecting the NT to grow and develop like this?

    Two three seasons if things don't improve the league might be only better in terms of revenue and show-off but the most suffering will be on NT..

    Exactly the point I made i.e., foreign players are given opportunity at the expense of local (Saudi) players thus, Saudi is failing to discover Saudi Talent. Saleh Al Shehri in Hilal is not getting playing time due to presence of Gomes, Kheirbeen... Similar story with the Saudi striker in Al Shahbab, etc.
