FFT's Five Finds: Pahang's plight, Pennant's panache

In Southeast Asia, the new football seasons are starting to click  into gear. FourFourTwo’s John Duerden has Five Finds from last weekend's action.

Pahang are in trouble

There have only been three games this season and it is a little early to be talking of crisis, but Pahang are sitting in last place after collecting just one point. The Elephants will be wondering where their first win is coming from.

The problem is that, with the departure of Zainal Abidin Hassan as coach and a number of star players, it was a poor close season.

That meant that if any team needed to get off to a good start, it was Pahang. This is a team that doesn't look like it is going to be in any title race this season but at the moment, that could the least of their worries.

East coast club Pahang's fortunes have been travelling south this season

The 4-1 loss at Penang in week two was a humiliating loss but one that can be shrugged off if their other results are different.

Losing to Selangor is nothing to be especially ashamed of but there has to be some improvement and soon otherwise a bad start turns into a crisis. The pressure is on coach Ahmad Shaharuddin Rosdi.

Tuesday's home game with Terengganu is already shaping to be a must-win.
