Did Thai football move beyond ASEAN? Is a question that has been debated in the keyboard coach industry for a long time Since the golden age of Coach Zico glory Sena’s town is gone. Along with entering the work of the current president of the Football Association At that time, everyone believed that the Thai men’s football team had already transcended ASEAN football. And ready to challenge all of the major Asian teams From the results of winning all the champions in ASEAN and passing through the final 12 teams in the World Cup Qualifier Asia Zone 2015 for the World Cup 2016 in Brazil, but when entering Asia The truth appeared when we were eliminated quickly, with only 2 points collected. Didn’t win. At that time Coach Zico was a goat for everyone to step on.
Thailand way to lay the foundation or step back down the canal.
After the new association came to work under the leadership of the president of the Police General Somyot Poompanmuang. And the team that has coach Heng Wittaya Laohakun as the core There was a concept to develop Thai football under the name of Thailand Way, which laid the foundation for development at the youth level. The creation of a number of line coaches to increase the number sufficient to train youth all over the country. And development of various fields to be comparable to the world level But under the pictures that look beautiful, the work goes in reverse Every Thai national team has underperformed their standards. Until causing football fans to question how well the Football Association is working or just a good paper tiger To the point that someone has called for the old club to come back to work, and of course the goal is for Zico coaches to return to the team.
After 4 years under the work of the current association, although the work on the field is not satisfactory for football fans. But in other matters such as Football League Development Increasing number of pro-coaches Or the improvement of professionalism in various fields is a more tangible development than any association that has ever been. These can still help to heal the hearts of football fans from poor performance on the field.
Until the arrival of Japanese coach Akira Nishino reawakened the hopes of football fans again With the hope of seeing the Thai national team play as the Japanese national team And Coach Akira brought an exciting style similar to Coach Zico’s era back to the Thai national team, until there was a peek at the association’s long-time relationship. But if you look carefully, the players that Nishino used Are all by-products of the all-round development of the association Both professional management helps support coaches to work more efficiently. Contributions in the field of continuous development Until the hope that Thailand will become an Asian team again But then Nishino pushed the team to the first round in the SEA Games
Who developed, who didn’t develop, who was a goat.
It is not yet known whether the results for the U23 Asian Championship and Olympic Qualifier How will the Thai national team perform? But for sure, the Thai football cheer culture of Thailand Often cannot defeat and must find a goat to take responsibility Without ever looking at development that requires time and patience How to count one hundred, however, must start from one Therefore, the duty of football fans is to encourage and stand by the team, whether winning or losing. Whether the work will develop or not, but football fans have to improve as well.
