Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

Arsenal Soccer School Indonesia to play Chelsea Soccer School Philippines in friendly

Arsenal Soccer School Indonesia (U16 team) will have a private training session with the Chelsea Soccer School Philippines at the Tribeca Field today. The Arsenal Soccer School is in Manila to play a friendly against the Chelsea Soccer School this coming Saturday, October 27, 2012 at the Evia Football Field.

Arsenal Indonesia will be coached by Jules Denis Onana. The visitors will also watch UFL Match Loyola and Mendiola at 7pm tonight at the University of Makati.

The Chelsea Soccer School Philippines Festival will be on Saturday, October 27, at Evia Field in Alabang and have three category tournaments: Under-10, Under-12, and Under-16.

The Loyola Meralco Sparks aren’t the only club playing in Singapore. The UFL Division One club will close out its 2012 Singapore Cup campaign when they play Gombak United for Third Place on Sunday, October 28, at the Jalan Besar Stadium at 5pm but following their heels will be the Sparks Under-12 team that will play in the SingaCup, a league-type tournament also in Singapore, from November 4-10, 2012.

The LMS U-12 team is composed of Hugh Kendryx Soriano, Emilio Gonzales Bongolan, Terran Chato, Stephen Ryan Herrera, Jacob Padernal, Carlos Lozano, Paco Locsin, Jan Vincent Nico Quintana, Kenneth Rance, Juan Paolo Lukban, William Valtos, Luis Carlos Bongolan, Juan Sky Guerrero, Fernando Antonio Roxas, Luis Dominic Elnas, and Artuz Aaron Cezar.


  1. Football in the Philippines has already gone a long way. Training sessions like these would make both the arsenal and chelsea soccer school stronger. Good luck to the LMS teams competing in Singapore, Itayo ang bandila ng Pinas!
