Since PH Football is rising, we should now also take a look about the other football stadiums in Philippines for a possible Azkals game to held outside Manila in the future so that Azkaleros based in provinces can see Azkals in action live. This could be a venue of Azkals actions if they will play in Pangasinan in the future.

cheeze: ^ Ohhh I remember that kid. With Etheridge and Muller not getting game time and Deyto looking shaky as of late, should be worth a shout. Denmark has a good record when it comes to producing shot stoppers. Schmeichel Jr and Sr comes to mind. Also Sorensen.

englishscout: Yep. Philippines don't need to worry about options for keepers. Novem Baumann and Bernd Schipmann are two more with a shout and obviously Areola too.

leoisiah: Wow, so englishscout is really watching our Pinoy's games. Cool. Are you even a Filipino? I guess you're English. Thanks for doing this pro-bono scouting. I hope you discover some Pinoy gem abroad. Do you have contacts with PFF?

hey: i don't think Areola will wear our colors
Mar 25, 2015 8:57:37 GMT 8
englishscout: no i'm not filipino. My girlfriend is, which is why I have an added interest. No I have no contacts with them, I have tried to get in contact but have had no reply. About as close as I have got is a connection with Palami etc on LinkedIn.

englishscout: I agree, I don't think Areola will either unless he reaches about 30 and still not capped by France. He is tipped to be PSG and France number 1 in the next few years, I doubt he would throw that chance away. Although he is full pinoy, so you never know.

chizcake: hope but do not expect hehehe

englishscout: Not a good showing for u22 azkals against north korea. I stopped watching after the 4th North Korean goal near the 80th minute. Defensively, very poor. Offensively they didn't offer much either and can't recall a single shot.
Mar 27, 2015 19:09:54 GMT 8
englishscout: are only young, but im only 23 myself. They looked like they lacked belief and confidence in their abilities. They let North Korea pass it around them so easily with no contesting
Mar 27, 2015 19:10:31 GMT 8
ollo: It's not about belief and confidence. It's just that North Korean players are superior beyond compare. Our homegrown players are still worse than Brunei or Cambodia so what can we expect? 0-4 is not that bad. I thought the scoreline would be much worse.

chizcake: i understand and feel you englishscout but yeah i didnt expect that much as i am focused on the experience this guys will get but i am very happy with the scoreline , i was expecting a much larger deficit , but and again but i was dismayed on
Mar 27, 2015 23:19:31 GMT 8
chizcake: on the less spirit, its looks like they didnt put much effort on fighthing and trying just accepted from the start it will be a losing game
Mar 27, 2015 23:20:18 GMT 8
englishscout: I understand that N Korea are superior, but if you go into a game with the attitude that losing 4-0 is a good result, you won't progress. Attitude goes a long way in football. Chelsea are far superior to Bradford yet they lose at home to them.

Peenoise: i agree with englishscout. should always think that you will win even though the odds are against us

englishscout: 1-0 Thailand 11 mins in
Mar 29, 2015 20:11:49 GMT 8
englishscout: So far i'm really impressed with Felongco at left back, he is looking very tidy and quick, puts the Thai players under a lot of pressure and makes good attacking runs
