Peanuts off the menu

The Khemara Keila line-up who fully deserved their 2-0 win over Kirivong today
Khemara skipper Kouch Sokumpheak in blue, was the star of the show, again
I took a couple of hours off work this afternoon to watch the Cambodian Premier League game at Olympic between Khemara Keila and Kirivong and for once the game was played in mild, overcast conditions instead of sweltering heat, until the heavens opened for the last ten minutes. Khemara's Kouch Sokumpheak is head and shoulders above every other Cambodian player in the league right now and displayed an infinite number of first touches, passes and goal attempts that would keep a statistician permanently occupied for the whole game. He was involved in everything. And did everything, except score. That honour went to his teammates Oladiji Olatunde and David Adeyinka, though of course he set both of them up. Khemara bossed the game from start to finish and deserved their 2-nil success. And debutant Joel Omoraka played a blinder too, keeping Kirivong's dangerman Juliuos Chukwumeka subdued. A good win for Khemara who go into 4th spot in the CPL. I have some news about the 'peanut princess' too. Anyone who has been following my posts will know that she's the main distraction at the stadium on matchdays. Well, I have to report that after some investigation, I found out that she's already happily married and has a young daughter. So I'll have to turn my attentions back to the pitch in future.
With the match coming to a close, the heavens opened and the sparse crowd took shelter under the scoreboard
The final picture of the 'peanut princess' at today's game

Then shes married - who cares? Shes not at all a distraction, as you put it; actually, shes the only reason why most people still bother to glance at your soccer blogs; drop her and you will miss a significant cross-section of your readership, be warned. - Sean

Dear Prudence,
"Final picture" means you won't post more pictures of her on the grounds she is married?!?!? Unbelievable! - Alastair

thanks for your comments.
If the 'peanut princess' is the only reason you look at my football postings, then that's a pity :-)
Now that I know she is married with a young family, I will refrain from posting her picture again. It's my decision.
However, I will continue to attend the matches, as football is my 1st love - even in front of the 'peanut princess' or other female distractions.
I will keep my eyes open for other opportunities to 'liven up' my football reportage.
