Insomniacz' team logo, is privately designed by one of the most renown artist of LDH Federation, Charlie-Planlos. SinnerZ is extremely happy with the artwork and will forever be grateful to both Charlie-Planlos and the LDH Federation who made all these possible.
Since Insomniacz was later renamed as Insomniacz S-Pulse, LDH once again helped to design the latest logo for the team. This time, it is Danish artist, sbach, who designed the logo.
The fans of Insomniacz have called themselves as 'Nocturnal Beings', after previously named "Sleepless Vampires". Currently, there are 3025 strong fans in the fans club, the number that have growed rapidly from a mere 100 fans two years ago.
Reportedly, it is a habit for 'Nocturnal Beings' to hold a yearly competition of being able to stay awake the longest. Fortunately, there has been no casualty so far.
Insomniacz have reportedly been negotiating a deal with a large 'sleeping pill' company, however as the fans thought that it would beat the purpose of naming themselves 'Nocturnal Beings', the boards have decided to strike a deal with a leading coffee-company-chain instead.
Insomniacz was initially known for being a 'defensive' team with 'preference' to Counter-Attack. However, since the end of Season 27, SinnerZ finally had enough of defending training and opted to switch to (yep, you guessed it) Scoring training.
SinnerZ is reportedly trying to establish a long term training plan (at last lol!) for Maxime Durand, who is currently a member of Luxembourg U20 team.
Currently, the other five trainees are:
- Azam Mollucas, a local talent, considered to be an overpaid purchase, but SinnerZ obviously didn't mind a single bit ;)
Hall of Fame
There is only one player/coach who had made it into our Hall of Fame, and that is the legendary Hannu Vanhala.
Hannu Vanhala wasn't a great player, in fact, throughout his career, he only made his name as a coach. He started out coaching 2 unknown teams at the beginning of 2006, before spending the next 4 seasons managing Itumbiara EC in Brazil. He was sacked somewhere in the middle of August 2008 and went on to pursue his career in his native Finland to coach AC. Köllör. However, tragedy happened when AC. Köllör went bankrupt and had to close down the club. Vanhala only served a mere 3 months before being jobless again for another month. It was then when SinnerZ approached him.
Many of Sleepless Vampires were skeptical with his ability to lead Insomniacz at first. He was indeed a solid coach, however he was seemingly poor in taking command of the situations in the dressing room. SinnerZ kept his word to back the allenatore to do his job and Vanhala managed to repay the faith of his manager. His best accomplishment would be leading Insomniacz to the sixth round of Indonesian Cup for the first time, at which 10-players Insomniacz could only hung on to 0 - 1 defeat to the eventual champion, Juvenile FC. Vanhala went on to win the IV.26 title at the end of the season and had won over his critics.
During his stint, he was also responsible of shoring up Insomniacz' defence, and his preference of playing was deploying 5-3-2 and 5-4-1, combined with counter-attacks. This was soon going to be Insomniacz' trademark in the future seasons.
Vanhala decided to retire on top and passed the baton to Salih Gümüş soon after that. He decided to stay at Samarinda and open up a restaurant somewhere at the heart of the city. Vanhala could be seen spending most of his time playing with his 1 year-old grandson, who might be an Insomniacz player one day.
Since the arrival of Banteng Pangandaran to II.4, the two teams have been very competitive and bitter towards each other. Though the two managers are friendly towards each other, but both sets of fans are usually hostile to each other.
