BBU bubble bursts

The BBU defenders simply couldn't handle the speed and trickery of new Kirivong signing Tran Cong Danh
Of course all attention is being paid to the football results in South Africa and all of England will be glued to the tv set today for the game against USA. Of course we'll win it. We invented football didn't we. Meanwhile, the Metfone Cambodian League continues and league leaders BBU suffered a surprise 4-1 whipping at the hands of a rejuvenated Kirivong team that had new Vietnamese import Tran Cong Danh running rings around a bewildered BBU defence all afternoon. He's tiny but he has lightning quick feet and a body swerve to match and left the BBU defenders trailing in his wake on numerous occasions. We also had 3 red cards, a flurry of yellows and some of the worst refereeing decisions I've seen this season, and that's saying something. I thought the BBU bubble might burst but I didn't expect it to happen so quickly after the start of the 2nd half of the C-League season. In the second game of the afternoon, Preah Khan also handed out a footballing lesson, to Chhma Khmao, winning 5-1. It was a virtual walkover. More on the matches in depth later.
