Re: 2017 K-League Classic

So it's Sangju Sangmu sucked down into the promotion-relegation playoffs against Busan. POSCO-bankrolled Jeonnam avoid finishing second-bottom thanks only to goals scored.

Re: 2018 World Cup qualification

As MipoFanatic had pointed out on social media, all these English-speaking nations are refusing to qualify for the World Cup to avoid drawing Korea and thus scuppering the launch of his long-awaited book... Cheek. Looks like I'll be too late for the 2018 World Cup - the first draft will be complete...

Re: FIFA corruption allegations

Not to make light of the allegation, but does Sepp like to be dominated? :smt117 :smt100 :smt079

Re: 2017 K3 League Basic (D5) season

So does Pyeongtaek win and get promoted due to home advantage?

That Incheon vs. Sangju fixture is rather tasty.

Re: 2017 Korean FA Cup Rounds 3 & 4

Thought I'd continue this thread rather than make a new one. Busan I'Park through to the FA Cup final after knocking out four Classic opponents, including FC Seoul and Suwon Bluewings (both from penalties). Bit of a Gyeongnam derby as they face Ulsan - although last I checked their supporters were i...

Re: The "Does he like kimchi?" thread

Ack, legendary Mipo manager Choi Soon-ho was allegedly behind the Pohang nonsense? Certainly tarnishes his reputation in my books, if true. Seems especially petty behaviour for a mega-bucks club like Jeonbuk. Just buy the poor guy out of his contract. Is it worth the reputational risk to the club of...

Re: After the K-League...

Apparently Cureton is seeking coaching badges and will join Arsenal to coach at their academy for two days a week while he continues playing for Farnborough in the Southern League.

Sounds like the end is near for the 42-year-old. Hopefully I can get my book out before the old git retires!

Re: AFC Cup (Club)

Second leg finished 0-0, so the Norks lose 3-0 aggregate.

Time for some hard labour, then?

Nork club April 25 played their first AFC Cup inter-zone play-off semi-final away to Indian side Bengaluru FC, with the Koreans losing the first leg 3-0. All three goals by native Indian players.

Re: After the K-League...

Jamie Cureton has left level-six St. Albans City. He's returned to Farnborough, recently promoted to level seven, on a one-year deal.

Cureton will be 42 in late August.

Welcome back, you've been missed. Do you think that Taiwan is ripe for football taking off, like in the mainland, or is it beyond help? Well that didn't really work. The idea was to get him to stick around. Maybe the "you've been missed" wasn't such a great idea. :smt010 Should have liste...
