Disgusting Scenes Mar East Kalimantan Derby
A firey encounter in Samarinda saw the home team miss a penalty right at the death and flares effectively end the game early as Mitra Kukar defeated Persisam 2-1 in the Mahakam Derby.
After the game Mitra Kukar coach Simon McMenemy, posting on Twitter, said that Persisam fans applauded the victors as they left for home.
Can it be? What the hell was going on? You lose 2-1, miss a late pen, their goalkeeper is called Joice and the fans cheer the winners, wishing them safe journey and probably asking them to send a postcard.
In any normal Indonesian derby or grudge match the visiting team would leave the stadium in an armoured personnel carrier win, draw or lose with a symphony of rocks and sticks bouncing off the metal frame.
Clapped away? Next they'll be handing out flowers...bless my soul, whatever next?
