Tiger On Tour: Fair and Square

Last updated : 09 February 2009 By Andy Beill
I watched the re-run of the West Brom game on Monday in Kanchanaburi. I thought we were capable of winning but the longer the game went on, the more West Brom deserved something, which they got.

I've since moved on to Chiang Mai and was much happier with our more recent point. Besides the early John Terry miss and the unawarded penalty, I think chances were equal and we wouldn't have been so lucky if we won.

Pies and beers has become a surprisingly common accompaniment to watching the games out here, and anybody visiting the UN Irish Pub will find the Steak and Guiness pie far more delicious than anything from the pre-match concessions at Stamford Bridge, I'm sure. I then watched the game on the big screen in Chaing Mai Saloon, another westernised bar.

Afterwards, and not for the first time, an elephant poked its head into the pub, with its handlers selling food for it. It can't be a particularly good life for the animal but it's still always an incredible sight. My girlfriend and I then got talking to a couple from Blackburn who recommended the Elephant Nature Park as a positive place for rescued elephants. We visit tomorrow, hoping that it's better than the Tiger Temple.

On Saturday I should be able to watch my first game of City's FA Cup run. I'll be in the town of Pai then. I wonder if there'll be a Pai pie? My visions of the Pai River may be unrealistic.

From Boothferry to the KC to Thailand to Wembley?

Keep the Hull flag flying high
